Jax Taylor Says ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Was Getting ‘Too Scripted’ During Season 8; Says “I Just Couldn’t Do It Anymore”

Jax Taylor claims he felt irritated when filming the last season of Vanderpump Rules because according to the former SURver, the series began to feel unnatural, which he says was the reason he knew it was time to leave the show.

“I was 100 percent checked out at the end. … I was just very irritable on the show. It was getting a little bit too scripted for me and I just couldn’t do it anymore,” he told Us Weekly. “It wasn’t fun.”

Jax, who previously denounced claims that the Bravo show was scripted, is sad to miss out on events with his friends who are still on the show, he “doesn’t miss” Vanderpump Rules.

“There’s no way we could have done this with a kid,” he said.

In April 2021, Jax and his wife Brittany Cartwright welcomed their first child, a son, Cruz.

Now that Cruz is here, Brittany no longer thinks she could be “all in” on the show.

“We put a lot of our heart and soul into that show and we’re very open and very real,” she told Us Weekly. “Having a kid changes your perspective on how much you want to put out there. People are mean and they mom-shame and everything else. I would be scared for that part.”

Still, the couple is open to returning to reality television someday — but with one condition.

“I want to it be more comedy, family-oriented. I’m really done with the drama and the arguing with people half my age,” Jax said. “We’re excited for our future. It’s nice to sit back … and take our time deciding how we want to do it and what we want to do.”

The former Bravo reality stars announced in September 2020 that they were expecting their first child together. “Mom & Dad,” the then-pregnant Cartwright captioned her Instagram reveal. “The love of our lives is coming soon.”

added with a post of his own: “So … I am gonna be a dad.”

Later that same month, the couple revealed the sex of their little one with blue confetti during their gender reveal party.

In December 200, the couple announced that they were leaving the Bravo hit reality series. The couple shared identical statements upon confirming that they were leaving Vanderpump Rules, calling their time on the series “some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years” of their lives. “We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors. @bravotv, @evolutionusa and our Vanderpump castmates will always remain close to our hearts,” they wrote. “Thank you to all the fans who have shared our journey with us and supported us through everything. We love you.”

However, fans noticed the similarities in the couple’s announcements — and Cartwright hinted that they weren’t given the freedom to construct their own departures.

“I’m tired of seeing this comment. Do you guys really truly think we got to write whatever we wanted?” she replied to one Instagram user, sparking speculation that the network had a hand in crafting their statements.

Taylor previously told disappointed fans that it “doesn’t make sense” for him and his wife to be on the series anymore. “I am 41 with a baby on the way … was the best choice for my whole family,” he said on Friday.
