Jax Taylor

Instagram Roundup: Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Ramona Singer, Craig Conover, & More!

There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub showed off her bikini body while enjoying some time on a boat. Teen Mom star Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels showcased her baby bump in a swimming pool.

Jax Taylor quits SUR

During the Season 6 finale of Vanderpump Rules, Lisa Vanderpump asked Jax Taylor to quit SUR. Most likely Jax has more than enough money to survive considering that he’s been carrying this show with his antics from Day 1. Not only that, but he’s also taking in that Instagram ad money. With that said, Lisa asking Jax to quit working at a restaurant right before filming ended sounded like a pretty good proposition to me. He gets the time off and he doesn’t have to “work” when he (most likely) has the funds to maintain his lifestyle. There’s no chance in hell that Jax “quitting” SUR actually meant that he wouldn’t be on the show. No matter what happened, he would still be the self-proclaimed “number one guy in this group.”

He was going to return for Season 7 in one way or another. Now there are reports that Jax is working at Tom Tom- the restaurant that Lisa and Ken Todd are opening with Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz as junior partners. Jax famously only knows how to make a vodka cranberry when he’s behind the bar, so he probably wasn’t at the top of the potential bartenders list. Even so, there isn’t a controversy that Jax is a bartender at the new restaurant. Maybe he’s applying his skills elsewhere? I can’t help expecting a contrived story line with Tom and Tom “hiring” Jax without Lisa’s approval.

Brittany Cartwright

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have only been engaged for a month but their wedding plans are well underway and the bride-to-be can’t hide her giddiness. The Vanderpump Rules star shared her thoughts on bridesmaids, which could prove to be a difficult task when so many in her L.A. circle have slept with the groom-to-be. She also says any negativity between them has evaporated.

Brittany shared with People magazine at Kristen’s clothing line launch, “We just have been so happy. I can’t even be upset with him, I can’t stop smiling.” She added that any bad feelings between them is gone and they’ve moved on from things shown last season, “We’re doing very good. It’s just such a happy time right now.”

Reality TV Star 4th Of July Photos: Yolanda Hadid, Kandi Burruss, The Situation, Kandi Burruss & More

Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.

Vicki Gunvalson hung out with her man Steve Lodge in Huntington Beach, California while her daughter Briana Culberson, son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and grandsons hung out with her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson in North Carolina.

Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks took her two sons Ayden and Dylan to an Atlanta Braves game- all decked out in red, white, and blue in honor of the holiday.

Stassi Schroeder Gets Her Own National Holiday

Everyone who follows Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder on social media knows that she is all about those OOTD posts. Her Outfit Of The Day posts have gained such a big following that Stassi actually has her own national holiday- aside from her annual birthday celebration, of course.

How did she celebrate the big day? By showing off her OOTD- duh. She was also joined by (most of) her Vanderpump Rules stars to commemorate the occasion.

Kristen Doute Gets Support From Her Vanderpump Rules Co-Stars At James Mae Launch

Scheana Marie Gushes Over Brittany Cartwright’s Engagement Ring

Last week Scheana Marie had Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley on her Scheananigans podcast and while they covered all things Real Housewives of Orange County in that interview (you can read that transcript here), they also talked a little about Vanderpump Rules. Scheana dished a bit about filming the new season and gushed over Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s engagement. And more importantly, the rock that Jax bought – aka Brittany Cartwright’s engagement ring!

Scheana shared “Her ring is almost 3.5 carats. It is like a very nice brand new car. It’s ridiculous. She couldn’t even wear it to work yesterday. I was like ‘let me see the ring’ and she was like ‘I’m not wearing that, like are you kidding?’. It’s a little big on her, so someone could come up and literally just snatch that off. I’m like ‘until you get that shit insured, you do not wear that out in public!’.”

Stassi

For the past couple seasons, the Vanderpump Rules cast members had to choose between attending Stassi Schroeder’s birthday and Ariana Madix’s birthday. Their birthdays just happen to fall on the same day and these two have never been best friends, so it never made sense to combine parties for the sake of their mutual friends- until now apparently.

These two hyped up their self-proclaimed “Ice Queen” personas with a Winter-themed birthday party. They both wore white body suits, similarly icy makeup, and some winter-esque crowns. (Game of Thrones meets Frozen?)
