Asked by The Daily Dish for his response to Katie’s shady Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen comment that his Los Angeles sports bar Jax’s Studio City is just a “bonus room” at the already-established neighboring tavern, Rocco’s, Jax didn’t hold back.

“Katie is an accessory,” he said. “She was Stassis accessory. Now, shes Arianas accessory.

Why are Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney fighting?

Jax and Katie had a history of squabbling when they were both on Vanderpump Rules.

At the time, Jax said: “Katie loves to f-cking just start sh-t. That's what she does. 

Flash-forward to April 30, when Katie and Ariana Madix appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. A guest asked Katie if she’d go to Jax’s Studio City, a bar he opened last fall.

“Listen. Me and Jax don’t get along. I don’t even know if I’m allowed in there. Why don’t we just go to Roccos that’s attached? ... Jax’s is a bonus room. It’s not shade. It’s the truth.
