On this episode of Vanderpump Rules, we finally get some intel on the rumors about “Jax” that have been swirling since the very first episode of this series. Since the show began I’ve gotten emails from gay men informing me that Jax used to be a male escort and had a sugar daddy who took care of him in Miami. Though interesting, I didn’t have any real details that could be verified. I did have a few pictures sent to me that are sadly not on this laptop. I was also told that he left Miami “in disgrace” and moved to Los Angeles where he changed his name to “Jax Taylor.” I can’t wait to see what happens tonight when it appears from previews that the sugar daddy comes on the show!
We begin with everyone being hung over from the party the night before in Miami. Lots of people claiming the don’t remember. Including Vail who I suspect may have already gotten Jaxed. Ariana is very bothered by Kristen. This pleases me. Schwartz says he is having sex with Katie now. Stassi is blowing off Katie’s texts.
Stassi and her Sur minion have a scene that contribute nothing to the show. Basically, Stassi is butthurt everyone left her for Scheana’s party, especially Katie.
And there is the sugardaddy! This is the guy from the pictures. According to Sandoval John was a model scout “and kind of a man about town” during the two years Sandoval and Jax lived in Miami together. My sources said Jax actually lived with John. Perhaps Sandoval did too? Sandoval says “during the time that me and Jax lived in Miami together” not “during the time that me and Jax lived together in Miami.” To me there is a difference. The way he said it implies they were both living in the same town together, but not in the same dwelling. But that is relying on Sandoval understanding this subtle difference and I’m not sure of that. For the record they show pictures of Jax and Tom during their Miami days and BOTH of them scream “gay for pay” to me. John does call Jax, “Jax” which is interesting because that is not the name he knew him under according to my sources.
OH WAIT! Tom just confirmed it. Jax was Jason when he lived in Miami. He did live with John and drove his car and allowed John to “completely hook him up.” So now we have confirmation. Tom says “obviously” rumors got started. Tom has stayed in touch but he and Jax ” had a falling out.” This is all going down just like the rumors I’ve heard. This is so exciting! Lol. Sandoval invites John to dinner with the gang knowing that this will cause some friction between Jax and John.
The girls are terrible at making toilet paper wedding dresses. Sadly, I have way too much experience at this. Always the bridesmaid…. never the divorcée.
There is a stupid scene with Lisa and Stassi so they can get a check for the episode.
Ariana is clearly on her period. She is crying in the cab because Kristen stresses her out. After Ariana cries, Sandoval tells the story of Jax living with John and moving away and changing his name after the rumors of him being a kept boytoy got all over town. Jason/Jax says John started his career. They share a friendly hug with John arrives. Sidenote: Jax has a HUGE gash on his forehead from “walking into a glass door.” I’m dying to know the real story. The past two episodes the guys have been much more interesting than the girls. John still has a nude photo of Jax hanging in his living room. It’s really a great shot. He’s sitting in the root structure of a tree on a river with his naughty bits tastefully out of sight.
Later in Miami at yet another dinner, James is asked if his feelings are hurt that he is the only male at the table that Schwartz has not kissed. James stays he doesn’t kiss boys, and that seems to be an American thing. If by American he means gay, he is correct. Meanwhile, Tom is kissing Ariana A LOT all through dinner. I’m not against PDA, but rounding second base at dinner table with ten other people is a bit much. Especially if your psycho ex is sitting at the table. Kristen and James excuse themselves for a smoke. Katie stirs the pot.
The gang goes out to a club and Jax and John are drawn together. They could not be making things more obvious unless they stripped down on the dance floor. John hugs Jax and says “I love you because I am over you. and I still love you as much as I did in the first place. ” Jax replies ” Yeah but, I’m a bigger person now. I was so young then and was just thrown into it right off the bat.” Jax says when he started modeling it was a gay industry. He was from middle America where there were no gay men (lol) and he got thrown into this world that he was not prepared for. John says, “Jason, I’m sorry, I really am.” Jax says, “Don’t be sorry dude. You made my life. If I had never met you, none of this would have ever happened. You a started it for me and that is awesome. I love you for that.” (more passionate hugging) Jax says all of the rumors are just rumors. So why did he change his name then?
Sandoval approaches Kristen and asks her to go talk outside. Kristen immediately starts the tears. I believe they are genuine. Crazy, but real. So um, real crazy. Kristen tells Sandoval she despises Kristen because he left her for Ariana. Now it is Toms turn to cry. They are both crying. I believe this scene because I’ve had it. Numerous times with the same person. Tom says he is going to be really cool with James and wants her to try to do the same with Arianna. Kristen clearly still wants to be with Sandoval. Tom thinks he gave Kristen the closure she needs. But Kristen sees the talk as proof that she can still break up Tom and Ariana. Oh Kristen you crazy girl. Ariana is the least of your problems. Those two will break up as soon as the show is cancelled if not before. What you should have been paying attention to tonight is that Sandoval was likely gay for pay in Miami as well. You need to find a nice straight man who like the crazy.
All in all the trip went well by reality show standards. And we got to meet the infamous sugar daddy.
Next Week: Vail and Peter have an attraction and Lisa is not pleased. And Kristen has decided to have the girl who Sandoval cheated on Ariana with in Miami make an appearance to facilitate the breakup of his relationship with Ariana. Oh this will backfire on my crazy girl. Bad idea Kristen. Very bad. And Stassi and Katie appear to break up for good.
