Let’s take a walk down Vanderpump Rules memory lane — to Season 2 when Laura-Leigh Claire stepped onto the scene as Jax Taylor‘s rebound chick. Fans may recall the aspiring actress was hooking up with SUR’s resident bad boy after Stassi Schroeder kicked him to the curb — but since then, she’s moved on to bigger and better gigs. So what happened to Laura-Leigh post-Pump? Let’s take a look!
When Laura-Leigh turned in her sexy black dress to boss Lisa Vanderpump, she revealed that she had accepted a role in a movie also starring Jennifer Aniston. That movie turned out to be hit 2013 comedy We’re the Millers, which also featured Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, and Ed Helms. How major is that!? She also appeared in 15 episodes of Lifetime’s The Client List as Nikki Shannon and recently completed shooting for the upcoming crime thriller Under the Silver Lake, which will also feature Riley Keough, Andrew Garfield, and Topher Grace!
Laura-Leigh made waves by hooking up with Jax in the bathroom at their place of work, much to Lisa’s dismay, and then Jax dumped her after he accompanied her to one of her 12-step meetings. The brunette beauty made no secret of her troubled past on the show — which included a period of crystal meth use. “I started drinking when I was twelve and then got into meth really heavily,” she shared at the meeting.
“I was robbing my family’s houses, selling all of our stuff to pawn shops. It was really, really bad. I do everything as hard as I can do it, as fast as I can do it, and yet I’m still convinced that I can have a glass of wine.” Her then-bartender boyfriend was “shocked” by the information, as he admitted, “I knew some of the things she’s done, but I was in shock. I didn’t realize it was to that extent.” Jax blamed their split on the fact that he recently ended his relationship with Stassi, and after a few more episodes, the budding star was off of the Bravo reality series and on to bigger and better things!
