Brittany Cartwright left the farm and Hooters behind, and headed to Hollywood to live with her boyfriend Jax Taylor! Jax is not known for being a great boyfriend, but Brittany brings out a better side of him, even Stassi thinks so!
Brittany is a breath of fresh air on Vanderpump Rules, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had drama. Last season she went head-to-head with Lala Kent, and early in season 5 she had to fight off bi-sexual rumors, which were started and fueled by Jax.
Brittany’s family learned about her rumored hooke-up with Kristen Doute on the show, and she recently told The Daily Dish that they were “super upset” by the accusations.
“They thought it was really cool [that I’m on the show]. I mean the first two episodes of this season they were all super upset, but I think they’re already getting over it,” Brittany admitted. Adding, “It was definitely hard for my family to watch, but they support me. They’re there for me, so they’ve got my back — no matter what.”
Brittany revealed that her family actually approves of Jax and their relationship. They recently visited LA, and even met most of the VPR crew!
“I’m super close with my mom. My family is amazing. On my mom’s side we all are next door neighbors,” she said. “And I’m super close to my mamaw, who is my grandmother. And it’s hard to not be home when something bad happens, like my grandfather passed away [in 2015]. So it’s just hard when stuff like that happens and you’re not able to be there with your family. And I have some really great friends. I’m still best friends with people I knew in elementary school. It’s just hard not being able to see those people as much as I would like,” Brittany explained.
When Brittany first came on the VPR scene last season, she was basically introduced as another one of Jax’s flings; but now I find her to be one of my favorites on the show! I’m glad she stands up to Jax, and is so well-liked by the girls; she seems like a fun, supportive friend! It’s still yet to be confirmed if the couple got a spin-off, but they were spotted filming in KY for weeks, so it seems very likely!
