The Bravo Gods have finally answered our prayers – Jax Taylor has been fired from Vanderpump Rules!
“The last 8 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding, and fulfilling years of my life. Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules. 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. Thank you to all the fans who have shared our journey with us and supported us through everything. We love you. Stay tuned; we can’t wait for to share what we have planned. Have a great weekend,” Jax wrote on Instagram alongside several photos from his time on the show.
Brittany posted a similar message on her own Instagram page.
The reality TV couple is expecting their first child. In September, the couple revealed they were expecting a baby boy due in April 2021.
Bravo confirmed the pair would not be returning to Pump Rules.
A spokesperson for the network told Variety that “Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.”
I can’t say I’m surprised by this at all. Pump Rules needs to be revamped in a major way.
I’m curious to see which other OG cast members will be leaving ahead of season 9. I also wonder if Bravo will be doing a spinoff show with the OG cast members as they enter this next phase of their lives.
It’s unclear when or if Bravo will begin filming for season 9 of Vanderpump Rules.
