If you watched the season premiere of Vanderpump Rules, you know that former Sur waitress Faith Stowers claims she slept with Jax Taylor last May, which means that he cheated on Brittany Cartwright. Even though Taylor denied the tryst, Page Six has confirmed that he was unfaithful to his girlfriend and they have been on-and-off ever since. Did VPR producers force the couple back together after “a very rough spring and summer?”
A Page Six insider claims that Cartwright does love Taylor, and that’s why she went back to him, but the network did orchestrate the reconciliation. However, a source close to the show says producers had nothing to do with it.
While shooting their spinoff Vanderpump Rules: Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, which they filmed before the cheating, Cartwright often talked about wanting to marry Taylor. She is now trying to work through their relationship problems and make things work.

So, where did Stowers come from? She has appeared on the show occasionally since 2013 as a friend of the cast, but she was apparently upset that she never became relevant. At the time of the incident, she was working as a home care aide and decided to use Taylor as a way to get back into the spotlight and get her own storyline on the reality show.
Stowers was looking for camera time and a contract, and the hook-up with Taylor is just what she needed to get it. She decided to record him, so she would have proof just in case he denied it. According to a Radar Online insider, Taylor says in the recording that he was marrying Cartwright for a spin-off, and the relationship is for his career.
Stowers claims that Taylor reached out to her on Twitter, and the two eventually had sex at the home of the 95-year-old woman she was taking care of.
This isn’t the first time Taylor’s infidelity has gotten him into some trouble. He famously cheated on his former girlfriend, Stassi Schroeder, during the show’s first season.
The 38-year-old doesn’t want to hear anything negative from fans about his new scandal. People magazine is reporting that he went on Instagram after the premiere aired to let his followers know that if they left negative comments, he would block them.
He wrote that no one cared about what they had to say, and no one would see it, but if they wanted to be “cool for two seconds, be my guest.”
As for Cartwright, she said that if the cheating claims ended up being true, she would “go f***ing insane.”
Catch all the drama when new episodes of Vanderpump Rules air Monday nights on Bravo.
