Things haven’t been the greatest between Brittany Cartwright, Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder—and it turns out, it all began over text messages.
To SUR-ve up the details: Brittany and Jax didn’t attend Stassi and Beau Clark‘s wedding in Italy in May. On a recent episode of her The Good, the Bad and the Baby podcast, Stassi seemingly threw shade at Jax and Brittany, claiming that—without naming names—some people backed out of her wedding last minute and were “talk[ing] s–t” about her and Beau behind their backs. Shortly after, Brittany shared why she and Jax were absent from the festivities, citing that their 14-month-old son Cruz not having a passport was a major factor in their decision.
“We had actual reasons why we couldn’t go that were not talked about,” she said on the June 13 episode of the Betches Mom podcast. “Like, Cruz’s passport didn’t come in, my mom had a death in the family and had to go home.”
Now, Brittany shared more insight into her fallout with Stassi. While appearing on the Scheananigans with Scheana Shay podcast on July 1, the Vanderpump Rules star revealed that their rift was initially caused by texts sent by Jax.

“Jax started getting in his head, getting worked up about flying with the baby,” she explained. “You know how Jax is, he’ll just text and rage text. He was telling their best friend Rob and he ended up showing them the message.”
Brittany went on to say that she “didn’t know” Jax was sending those messages, adding, “He shouldn’t have done it.”
“Whenever I found out about it, I was very upset with him,” she recalled. “I apologized like, ‘I’m so sorry. We’re still planning on coming.'”
However, according to Brittany, Stassi and Beau “got really mad at both of us and didn’t talk to us for a couple of weeks.” She explained, “We didn’t hardly hear from them, and I kept saying I’m so sorry that he did that.”
Though she and Jax did skip the couple’s nuptials, Brittany hopes to “make things right.”
“I feel terrible and still feel terrible because I do love them,” she shared. “I’ve reached out since the wedding. I said, ‘Everything is so gorgeous and I hope that we can talk one day and I am so sorry about how things went down.'”
She added, “I haven’t gotten any response just yet.”
