Brittany made the heartbreaking admission in a new preview clip of Season 1, Episode 5 as the ladies gathered in their jammies for a fun-filled night of drinking and games. 

 “Describe the last sex you had,” a pregnant Janet Caperna read from one question card to kick off the festivities. 

While Janet happily described her last rendezvous in the bedroom with husband Jason, Brittany confessed that she and Jax were going through a difficult dry spell.

“Um, the last time I had sex? Um, probably like a month and a half ago at least,” she admitted. 

The others encouraged her to talk to Jax about the issue, but Brittany insisted the bar owner already “knows” her feelings. 

“It’s been a whole thing,” she said before breaking into tears.

“He kind of puts me down a lot whether it’s about if I go out and have a girls night and don’t feel good the next day or the way I look,” she shared.

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. 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," she continued.

What has Brittany Cartwright said about her breakup with Jax?

The couple announced they were taking some time apart in February, just weeks before The Valley premiered.

Brittany told Page Six part of the reason for the split was because she didn’t feel valued in the relationship.

“We’ve been together nine years, and people stop appreciating and take you for granted after some time, and that should never happen in a marriage,” she explained at the time. “So, that’s what I’m trying to get back, and if it doesn’t come back, we won’t get back together.”

Brittany gave an update on the status of her relationship on an April 2 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, admitting she was hopeful the couple would go to marriage counseling, but so far Jax has resisted the idea.

"Everything is kind of up in the air right now," she said of where the two stand today. "I feel like I'm really strong right now, I feel like I've grown a lot in the past couple years, especially after having Cruz, I've gotten so much stronger and I feel like I deserve better."
