Jax Taylor is and seemingly always will be Vanderpump Rules’ resident bad boy. After quitting the show earlier this summer, Billie Lee is blasting the newlywed for being verbally abusive among other things.
Many rumors were surrounding Billie’s exit before she made it official. The LGBTQIA activist opened up about feeling like an outcast in a lengthy post on her blog.
It read, in part: ‘Some of my coworkers were threatened by my differences, going out of their way to exclude me, one demanding I be fired from the show because he didn’t feel comfortable working with me, his exact words were, “I’m not gonna lose all I have worked hard for for something stupid I may say or do to offend her. Are we all supposed to tip toe around her because she’s trans?” Like most men during the #MeToo movement he was so afraid of saying the wrong thing that he just wanted me gone. The bullying on and off camera brought my deep insecurities to the surface, this dark black mirror held up high for everyone in public to see and to judge. The reflection of fear and anger led me back to depression and suicidal thoughts.’
In a recent interview with In Touch Weekly, Lee definitely seems to name who the coworker is. And it doesn’t look good for Jax Taylor.
She recalls that when she joined the show, she was told by everyone not to get involved with him but she chose to give him a chance much like she did James Kennedy. She later realized that he was ‘an awful person.’
‘When it comes to Jax, there were some things that I overheard him say off-camera that I thought was very alarming.’
She didn’t go into specific details. Do you think Billie was bullied by Jax Taylor?
