Jax Taylor Claims Michelle Lally Was ‘Texting Other Men’ During Marriage

Michelle and Jesse Lally announced their split just before the Season 1 premiere of The Valley. In a separate interview, the pair teased that fans would see what led to their divorce play out on camera. Now, it’s all happening.

Thanks to a sneak peek for next week’s episode, watchers saw Jax Taylor tell Jasmine Goode that things between Jesse and Michelle are worse than he thought. “What he told me when we went to the carnival is, ‘If my marriage lasts the next two months, I’ll be shocked,’” Jax said. “I knew they were going through tough times. As we were leaving the fair, Jesse kind of brought it up that he thought his marriage would be over in the next couple of months.”

During another clip, Jasmine met up with Janet Caperna to talk about her meetup with Jax. When Janet asked what Jax told her, Jasmine said she wasn’t “comfortable” repeating the rumors. However, she said Jesse would believe “it’s a ten.” In other words, he may flip a table like Teresa Giudice. When producers flashed back to their sit down, it showed Jax saying Michelle has “been texting other men.” 

“Jax is messy in a way where he tries to play it off like he’s not being messy. He wants you to feel like, ‘I’m just giving you this information.’ Like, ‘Isn’t it crazy? But you should do something with it,’” Jasmine said in her confessional. “But Janet, she’s messy as well. I know deep down she’s probably like, ‘This is fun.’”

Later, the peek showed Jax saying he got this information from Kristen Doute, but he wanted to get ahead of the rumor being spread. “I am just worried about Kristen” opening “her mouth.” Oh, brother. 

At the end of this week’s episode, the trailer for next week’s showed Jesse, Kristen, and Luke Broderick getting into a heated exchange. “If you bring out any skeletons that I don’t already know about my wife, I will f*cking bury you,” Jesse told them. 

Ooh. This is going to be good. 

The Valley continues on Tuesdays at 9/8c.
