Fellow cast member and Bravo newcomer Zack Wickham recently told The Daily Dish that he and Brittany were staying at the same Airbnb for a period of time.

Brittany had previously revealed on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she moved into an Airbnb following her newsworthy split from Jax Taylor, which ended after four years of marriage.  

Of course, those familiar with The Valley are fully aware that Brittany and Zack have been close friends since their college days in Kentucky, which Zack reiterated in the interview when citing Brittany as his "best friend" once he moved to Los Angeles.

“You know, what sucks is [that] the viewers haven’t gotten to see Brittany and I’s dynamic,” Zack told The Daily Dish. “When I say we’re best friends, basically, we could have been conceived in the same womb.”

Who is the “new man” in Brittany’s life?

Zack said he and Brittany share “that type of mentality” where they get one another “on a different level.”

“I’m the man in her life; I’m the real man in her life, and I’m the one that’s always going to be there,” he explained. “I’m the one that moves her from Airbnb to Airbnb, and I’m the one that fixed the toilet seat the other day, and I’m the one that — even at her house — is going to be the one that’s always there for her. That’s just the way it is.”

While Brittany has said little about where she and her 3-year-old son, Cruz Michael Cauchi, live since moving away from the family’s Valley Village home, she told Andy Cohen that she plans on “spending a sh-t ton of money on Airbnbs until we figure out what we’re gonna do.”

The former Vanderpump Rules cast member said she still pays “all the bills,” including items related to the toddler’s schooling, transportation, and insurance. Brittany also noted on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast that she pays for the home she once lived in, adding that she “put down as much money” as her now-estranged husband.

Zack Wickham Says Jax Taylor Affected His Friendship with Brittany Cartwright

Zack told The Daily Dish that he is “one thousand percent” Team Brittany amid the split, “period.”

“But at the same time … he’s also the father of Cruz, and so just for that alone, he gets a little respect,” said Zack. “At the same time, I want the best for Jax, and I don’t think them together is the best for either of them.”

Zack even became choked up when he mentioned how his and Brittany’s years-long friendship had experienced a period of turbulence.

“I feel like Jax really affected us getting to hang out, and I lost my best friend there for a while,” said the emotional Bravolebrity.

He clarified that he hadn’t actually lost Brittany but said the relationship struggled because they used to be “always together.”

“I’m just closer than ever now, and we’re back to where we were before,” he continued. “I’ve just never been happier for her.”

When asked about his current relationships with other cast members on The Valley, Zack pointed to Kristen Doute and Jasmine Goode as being his closet friends. Still, it sounded like Brittany took the cake.

“I’ve gotta stop choking up when I talk about Brittany,” he admitted.
