You know what they say: Don’t send a man to do a woman’s job. Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor attempted to out cast member Ariana Madix as a lesbian during an episode of Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live — and needless to say, the 34-year-old took it as an opportunity to clap back with some knowledge.
“I DO like women,” Ariana wrote on Twitter on January 7, following the talk show episode. She even added a crying laughing emoji. “AND men. It’s called being bisexual. Ever heard of it?” The blonde beauty also added the hashtag “#thisisnthard,” finishing off her post with a sassy Michelle Taner GIF. Gotta love a good Full House reference.

Ariana’s clapback came after Jax made some nonsensical comments on the live broadcast following the Pump Rules season 8 premiere. When a fan called in and asked the 40-year-old if he felt Tom Sandoval might be jealous of Jax’s progressing relationship, especially with Ariana’s hesitance toward marriage and children, the former bartender quietly alleged that the comedian “likes women” under his breath.
His wife and costar, Brittany Cartwright, immediately scolded him for the comment. “Don’t say that! Don’t say that,” she said, before he switched up his story, as he has been known to do. “Sorry,” Jax said. “I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry!”
But the 50-year-old host isn’t one to let a Bravolebrity off the hook in front of a live studio audience. “You think Ariana likes women?” the reality TV boss asked Jax. “What do you mean you didn’t mean it? You just said it.”
After deeming the outburst an “accident,” Brittany swooped in to say that Tom’s longtime girlfriend “likes everybody — just like most of us do!” The only thing Jax seemed to think Ari needed to do was “just own it,” he said. “That’s fine. Just don’t lie about it.”
To be fair, we don’t think the blonde beauty has ever been shy about her attraction to women. In fact, she and her man, 36, recently spoke with Life & Style exclusively about who their ideal castmate hookup — and Ariana took no time deciding on Dayna Kathan, one of the SUR newbies this season.
It looks like Jax is just back on his BS, y’all.
