Things got explosive during part two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion on Tuesday, May 14. Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval got in a fight that led to some serious threats about the bartender’s role in his longtime friend’s upcoming wedding. As expected, James Kennedy was at the center of most of the drama. However, it snowballed and led to the other castmembers ganging up on Tom.
During the reunion, the 35-year-old seemingly defended James while he was arguing with Jax, 39, and Brittany Cartwright, 30. This did not sit well with the couple and the Kentucky beauty screamed, “Tom, you’re his best man — Stop!” Things got so tense that Andy Cohen decided the cast needed to take a break.
“Tom’s not in my wedding. He’s not in my wedding party anymore,” Jax declared as he walked off set.
“Why don’t you hold him accountable for this s–t?” Kristen Doute yelled at the Tom Tom owner backstage during the filming break. The Bravo-lebrity snapped back, “I do! I told him to shut the f–k up!” Jax then jumped in and exclaimed, “No, you dont!”
At this point, Brittany was fuming and said, “Every single time it’s brought up you deflect to what Jax is saying.” It turns out, Tom seemingly had a bit of sympathy for the Brit. “When James starts talking, it’s nine people coming at him,” he tried explaining.
Jax continued fuming at his costar. “It looks really bad that you’re standing in my wedding … You don’t have to be in my wedding, I don’t care, honestly,” he said. “[You’re] just going to sit and let him talk about me like that? Why would you do that? You’re attacking me,” the Michigan native added to which Tom promised, “I’m not attacking you!”
Neither of the guys has spoken on social media about the current state of their relationship. Jax tweeted on Tuesday, May 14, that he’s “always down to eat at [Tom Tom],” but that could fully be in support of Tom Schwartz.
Time will tell if Tom is actually ex-communicated from his longtime pal’s big day.
