I’m more of a Real Housewives girl than a Vanderpump Rules one, but even I know that the latter’s star Jax Taylor is a piece of garbage — he once claimed he can’t be homophobic because half of his friends are gay. That’s not a thing, dude!
But Taylor really outdid himself during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday when he outed one of his co-stars. Taylor was answering call-in questions about fellow Vanderpump Rules castmate Ariana Madix, and said that the reason why she hasn’t settled down with boyfriend Tom Sandoval is because “Ariana likes women.”
Taylor’s wife Brittany Cartwight, who was also a guest on the episode, attempted to shut her hubby up. “Sorry, I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry,” Taylor said, attempting to do damage control. When host Andy Cohen asked Taylor to clarify his comments, he first tried to play it off, claiming that Madix “likes everyone, just like most of us do.” And then he advised that Madix should “just own it. That’s fine, just don’t lie about it.”
Madix responded to her on-air outing on Twitter in the best way possible. “I DO like women,” she wrote. “AND men. [I]t’s called being bisexual. [E]ver heard of it?”
Taylor has a history of homophobic comments, telling some one Twitter that they were “the type of guy who is in [a] frat and claims he loves women, but secretly is bending over his roommate ‘Chad’ while wearing boat shoes.” Fire him, Andy!
