Jax Taylor Vanderpump Rules

Vanderpump Rules Season 9 is fast approaching, and there’s no doubt it will be a season unlike any other. Half of the OG cast “left” (aka got fired) from the show after last season for various displays of bad behavior. That includes new dad Jax Taylor, which is still a shocking concept to wrap my head around. Jax has been a VPR OG since the early days and his bad-boy antics ranged from entertaining to downright toxic. He’s stolen sunglasses. He’s blown up on his friends. He cheated on his fiance. The list goes on. And while Jax might not be missed by many on the next season, his absence will truly be somewhat alarming.

Jax and Brittany Cartwright are new parents battling with their bookkeeper and weirdos on Instagram who make fake accounts pretending to be their newborn baby. They hang out with fellow disgraced former Pump Rules parents Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark. Jax has definitely shown he’s pretty bitter about his alleged firing, saying that he didn’t even want to be a part of the phoniness anyway. Which disputes his early claims regarding his excitement to start filming Season 9. And you know who’s laughing all the way to the bank to cash their Bravo check that Jax misses so much? Miss Charli Burnett who never eats pasta. And that’s on that.

Lala Kent Randall Emmett Vanderpump Rules

The stars of Vanderpump Rules have really undergone a lot of change throughout the past year or so. There’s been firings, engagements, weddings and lots of babies. The rag-tag Sur group has gone from waiting tables and giving Lisa Vanderpump anxiety with their drunken antics to becoming parents, writing books and being real-ass adults. Season 9 is currently filming, and who even knows what it’s going to look like. Scheana Shay is a new mom, but will probably still be waiting tables at Sur in her crop tops and high ponytails that we know and love. Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz are trying to jump on the VPR pregnancy train as well. Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy just got engaged and might be the new fan-favorites next season.

The one thing that’s sure to be the same is that Lala Kent, who debated even returning to VPR as a mom, will cause some drama. She’s always been one to speak her mind and defend herself to the end, whether she’s sober or not. She and Scheana, who were feuding while pregnant, have apparently made up now that they’re new moms. Lala has some beef with Ariana Madix that the show will likely dive into. And she’s continuing on her journey of sobriety and dreaming of having more babies with Randall Emmett rather than devising drunken plots to ruin his vacation by defiling his toothbrush, among other things.

Beau Clark Opens Up About Depression; Says “I Have So Much Fear Of The Future”

It’s been a minute since Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for racist behavior. The Vanderpump Rules stars were axed in June of 2020, along with Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Stassi lost brand endorsement deals, and her podcast was pulled from all platforms.

Stassi was planning to marry Beau Clark in Rome in October of 2020. But coronavirus had other ideas. However, the couple did receive some good news.

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett just welcomed their baby girl a few days ago. Fired star Stassi Schroeder and her boo Beau Clark recently became parents (and already started a podcast about it). And Brittany Cartwright and Scheana Shay are also expecting babies this spring.

The OG Pumpers are all grown up and have had Lisa Vanderpump as a maternal figure to guide them along the way. While LVP expected some of her employees to start families, other pregnancy announcements were more of a shock.

Lala Kent has someone to share her nightly baby bottles with. Yes, the Vanderpump Rules cast member is officially a mom! She and her fiancé Randall Emmett have welcomed a baby girl, their first child together.

Randall already has two daughters, Rylee and London, with his ex-wife, You actress Ambyr Childers.

Stassi Schroeder - Vaderpump Rules

In June 2020, Stassi Schroder was fired from Vanderpump Rules in response to her multiple offensive and racist acts, including but not limited to accusing Faith Stowers of committing a crime with zero evidence and complaining about the Black community’s desire for representation in film. She has also called herself “Nazi chic.” Stassi even denounced the #MeToo movement.

She got a “diversity teacher,” but it didn’t make a huge difference. She lost brand deals, her podcast was dropped from all platforms, and she got the boot from her agent and manager. Then, she hired a crisis PR team and planted stories of herself picking up food from restaurants. And, in the midst of all that, the news broke that she was pregnant with her first child. She married Beau Clark. And now, she’s a mom in need of income.

It seems like forever since Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racist behavior. Two newbies, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also axed for their racial insensitivity on June 9, 2020.

Stassi lost many brand endorsement deals, and her podcast was yanked from all platforms. There were rumblings in August of 2020 that Stassi might get a show of her own, but the talks never came to fruition.

Jax Taylor

Very few people actually quit a Bravo reality TV show. Usually, they are afforded the courtesy of putting out some nonsensical statement about “looking forward to future projects” that never actually come to fruition to save face. However, most people don’t just quit these shows. The Bravo paychecks and the endorsement deals that come from the exposure are a lot to give up.

In June 2020, Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for their racist behaviors. In response, some people wanted to know why Jax Taylor wasn’t included in that list of firings. Faith Stowers accused Jax’s wife Brittany Cartwright of using racial slurs.
