Jax Taylor has entered the chat!
While the Bravoverse was shocked by the news of Tom and Raquel’s affair, the 42-year-old former reality TV star claims he is not surprised at all.
On Twitter, a Bravo fan asked, “Are you at all shocked like the rest of us, Jax?” to which he replied, “No.”
The former SUR bartender then made it clear there are no “teams,” as Sandoval doesn’t deserve one for cheating on Ariana Madix.
“I mean, I really don’t understand the “team” there is no “teams”; it’s just her. Who would have his side?” Jax said while retweeting Jerry O’Connell’s photo wearing a “Team Ariana” shirt.
If that weren’t enough, Jax then teased a surprise appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen this week.
“See you soon, @BravoWWHL,” Jax tweeted.
Jax went on to claim that Tom is now refusing to film any more scenes for season ten of Vanderpump Rules.
“Funny he’s now refusing to film and did the exact same thing when the Miami girl was in town #ownyourshit #pumprules,” Jax wrote.
Turns out Jax’s claims about Tom refusing to film are true.
Entertainment Tonight reports that Tom threatened to stop filming after filming a scene with Raquel over the weekend.
“Tom wasn’t happy with how the scene went with Raquel and felt like it was going to paint him in a negative light. He told producers he’d like to re-film the scene, but producers weren’t having it,” a source tells the outlet.
“Tom told production that he would no longer shoot Vanderpump Rules if they don’t listen to him,” the insider adds.
Another source says that production has plans to film with Tom later this week.
On top of that, Tom and Raquel’s affair has caused major issues among the VPR cast. The source adds that Tom and Raquel are now acting like a couple while filming together.
“Tom and Raquel’s incident has created a major split in the group with almost everyone against Tom and Raquel,” a third source revealed. “The group feels like Tom has been going through some sort of midlife crisis, with the creation of his band and acting out at times. The girls are rallying around Ariana, but know in time she’ll be OK.”
“Tom and Raquel are filming as a couple. What they’ve shot so far, they look like boyfriend and girlfriend,” the source adds, “Tom’s ex Kristen Doute has had conversations about returning to film amid the scandal, and she wants to support Ariana in whatever way Ariana wants her to.”
Vanderpump Rules airs on Wednesday’s at 9 pm on Bravo.
