Who was the first person Brittany Cartwright called after she got confirmation that her boyfriend Jax Taylor had cheated on her with former SURver Faith Stowers? Her mother, Sherri Cartwright, of course.
Brittany shared the news with her mom in an emotional phone call during Monday night's episode of Vanderpump Rules, and Sherri consoled her daughter as best she could from 2,000 miles away at home in Kentucky. "This episode is hard to watch," Sherri tweeted during the episode. "I just want to get on the next plane!!"
Understandably, Sherri had some thoughts about the situation. She posed one question in particular to Jax when he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night. "Jax what makes you think you can be faithful to my daughter now?" Sherri tweeted.
Jax addressed the tweet on WWHL (clip above). "It has been a few months, well, seven months since this happened. We are working through it. It's a work in progress. I love her very much," he said, adding that he has been faithful to Brittany in the time since the news of his infidelity came out. "I think our relationship's been stronger now than it's ever actually ever been. We're actually in a good place, but obviously it's gonna take some time to build my trust back for her. It's a work in progress, but we both love each other. We're making it work. And at the end of the day, this is Brittany and I's relationship."
The Vanderpump Rules bartender went on to say that he has been working on himself since coming clean about cheating on Brittany. "I just think that in the beginning, I was taking Brittany for granted. I don't think I appreciate her as much as I do," he shared. "I've kind of just been going back to therapy again."
Jax also expressed his remorse on Twitter during Monday night's Vanderpump Rules. "Many of you have watched our show for years and I know I have made my fair share of mistakes, I am very sorry to Brittany for having to go through this," he said. "She and I love each [other] and [are] continuing to work through this, all I can say it’s a long season, stay tuned."
He also affirmed his love for Brittany on Twitter. ".@BNCartwright is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I know that, she has a heart of gold and makes me smile every day," Jax gushed. "The fact that she puts up with my dumb ass says so much. Thanks to all who watch every week."
Jax explains why he wanted to be honest about being unfaithful to Brittany in the video, below.
