Tonight’s Watch What Happens Live guests are Bravo Superfan Jerry O’Connell and Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor. We kick off the night with Jerry breaking his clubhouse chair moments before they hit the air. And it pretty much sets the tone for the laughs and shenanigans that continue on through the show.
Jerry O’Connell is doing press for a new project and during an interview this morning he was asked which Housewife was his favorite – a tricky question for him because he loves them all. He told them Dorinda Medley because she “made it nice!” and then Dorinda popped in during the interview to surprise him.
On having Brittany‘s mom at his birthday roast, Jax says “What do you do in that situation? You have every ex girlfriend slash other girlfriends that I’ve slept with in the audience. What do you do? Just drink, that’s it.”
A caller says that Brittany‘s mom came off as a little homophobic on tonight’s episode. How does Jax feel about that? “I have to take into consideration where she’s brought up. She’s in the Bible Belt in Kentucky – very different from how I grew up. So, I have to take that into consideration.” Andy chimes in to defend Brittany’s mom’s reaction. “Also, you find out that your daughter’s boyfriend has maybe done it with guys, you might be interested in that.”
Jerry weighs in on RHOBH’s pantygate. “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. My wife is a huge fan of Erika Jayne and it’s not a big deal.”
Does Jax think he’ll ever be friends again with James Kennedy? “No. No.”
Is Jax going to marry Brittany soon? Is there a wedding in the near future for them? “We’ve been dating for a year! So, as of today, no. In the future, possibly.” He tells Andy their age difference is about 10 years.
It must be noted that Jerry does an amazing and hilarious James impression. Actually he was doing a few of them all night, including one of Brittany‘s mom. I recommend taking a look at tonight’s episode if you didn’t yet – there were a lot of fun moments that are best watched live. Jerry needs to be a co-guest from now on when there’s a Bravolebrity in the clubhouse.
Jax says he hasn’t talked to Shay since his split with Scheana. “He’s kind of eliminated himself from the group. He has moved back home and is living with his parents.” He throws in some extra shade, “but he did write a song called ‘I Made It’, so…”
A caller asks Jax why Stassi came back into the picture and can control the other girls. “It’s how she runs things. It’s like a, I’m not gonna say mean girls thing, I’m not gonna say that, but it’s kind of like that. It’s a cult, clique, whatever you want to call it. That’s their thing and that’s how it works and you just gotta accept it or be gone.”
A caller says she’s been trying all season to understand what Jax ever saw in Stassi besides the fact that she’s beautiful? He laughs nervously and says it’s a loaded question. “It was five years ago, Stassi is an amazing person. I love her more now, and I’ve told her this, than when we first started dating. She’s grown a lot. We were very young. She’s just an amazing girl now. I feel like we’d be better later in life than we were before.” Andy wonders if they’d get back together down the road, then? “No, I’m not saying I’d go back to dating her. I’m just saying we’ve all grown.” Andy interrupts and deadpans: “is that what I’m looking at now, is you all grown?” Jax stutters, “well, I guess some of us. We’re all different now.”
