Since The Valley's premiere, Janet told earlier this month, that their friendship with the couple has since evolved. "You'll see some shifts in my friendships," she said. "I think, specifically, in the group."

Friendships aren't the only things to have changed in the group. Since filming Season 1 of The Valley, Jax and Brittany separated, citing that they needed space to get some clarity on things. The couple has continued to co-parent for their son, Cruz Cauchi, and remain amicable while working on their relationship.

Janet, who has seen the relationship up close and personal appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on April 23, where she offered her take on where Jax and Brittany stand today.

Cameras have been able to capture glimpses of Jax and Brittany's relationship throughout the series — from their highs to their low lows. During Season 1, Episode 5, Brittany admitted that she felt like Jax had been "very hard" on her. "He kind of puts me down a lot whether it's about if I go out and have a girl's night and don't feel good the next day, or the way I look," she explained.

"Your partner is supposed to lift you up and make you feel good about yourself, and I feel like he's doing the opposite to me right now and that really sucks, because I've been in his corner through all the sh—t he's put me through," she added. "I've always stuck up for him, I've always believed in him, and I just feel like I don't get the same thing in return."
