During Part 1 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion, Jax Taylor directed (projected) his grief and anger at co-star Scheana Marie. He ripped into her over the way she failed to respond and be there for him after his dad passed away. Scheana was furious with him but is forgiving him for treating her like crap at the reunion taping. They both took to Twitter to clear the air and share their current friendship status with fans.
Jax started off his Tweet explanation with, “Trying to keep ya guys in the loop with @scheana and I. Please understand until you have lost a parent please do not judge someone. You do not have a single clue what they are going through.”
He explained why he lashed out so hard at “close friend” Scheana. “Please understand, I just lost my father, I was an emotional wreck. Scheena just so happened to be in the line of fire first. And yes I do hold her to a higher standard because I am closer to her than some of the other girls so I was hurt. Nothing more or less. We both have talked and it’s fine now, I am learning more and more life is really f***ing short. Some things are just not worth being mad about.”
Scheana followed up Jax‘s post with words of forgiveness for him and more apologies for the way she responded at the time. She shared “Jax and I are very close. We have been for years. I understand why he was upset but he also knows I was there for him in the way I felt was best at the time. I’ve apologized, we’ve spoken, and all is well.”
Do you think Jax is going to show us an evolved and grown up Jax next season? Will this “transformation” last? Or will his grief be an excuse for bad behavior to come? I do think we should give him the benefit of the doubt and see what happens. Death of a parent can be truly life-altering.
