Hell has frozen over. Why??
Well, because during Monday’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, we witnessed Jax Taylor do something totally selfless. We’re, of course, speaking about the SUR bartender’s dumping of girlfriend Brittany Cartwright.
Okay, normally we don’t look at ice cold breakups as a positive thing, but this situation is the exception. As you surely know, Jax and Brittany’s relationship has been through quite a bit. Not only did Mr. Taylor cheat on the Kentucky native, but he’s been struggling with his anger management issues.
Thus, after his (recently aired) outburst at Lisa Vanderpump‘s hotspot, the 38-year-old did some much needed self introspection. Sadly, Jax’s revelation took Miz Cartwright by surprise, but more on that later on…
Brittany seemed more than willing to fight for her relationship, especially when she butted heads with pal Stassi Schroeder over not knowing her “self worth.” While defending her controversial relationship, Brittany noted:
“You’re not with me every single day. You’re not in my relationship every single day.”
She later admitted in a confessional that her unfaithful boyfriend was her “best friend.” Poor thing!
Although Brittany seemed confident in her romance with Jax, the latter was struggling with some serious doubts. Doubts that were brought to light by reiki healer Kelsey. During one coaching session, Kelsey dropped this little truth bomb:
“The reason you’re being mean to [Brittany] is because you don’t want to have to be the one to walk away.”
Oh snap!! She then urged Jax to tell Brittany the “truth” so that the waitress could “find the person that’s going to treat her like a princess.” PREACH IT, Kelsey!!
However, the truly shocking moment came when Jax actually followed through on Kelsey’s advice. Yup, the Bravolebrity abruptly dumped sweet Brittany — and his rationale totally made sense. Jax relayed:
“I’m just, like, really unhappy. I’ve been unhappy for such a long time … This has 150 million percent nothing to do with you.”
Intense stuff. An emotional Jax continued:
“I am not good in relationships. You deserve a lot better than me. I just don’t think we should be together anymore… I’m not happy with myself. I don’t like who I am and it’s not because of you.”
You know what?? We totally understand this. In fact, this may be the most self aware Jax moment we’ve ever witnessed!
Regardless, Brittany was furious. The 29-year-old ranted:
“How can you do this to me? … You want to break up after everything I’ve been through?”
Oof. After grabbing her purse and calling an Uber, Brittany somberly shared in a voiceover:
“He has betrayed me in so many ways.”
So sad. Don’t fret about these two though, as it appears that they’ve already come back to each other. Evidence of their reconciliation can be found (below)!!
