“I was a little upset because… I was in this from the beginning, and I think I helped create a masterpiece,” Jax said of his time on the series. “That’s what I call the show. I really think it is.”

Jax went on to mention how Lisa served as a “huge figure” in his life, but once he departed from Vanderpump Rules in Season 8, it seemed like she didn’t value their friendship anymore.

“I mean, I spent over a decade of my life with [Lisa]. I’ve had heart-to-hearts with you. I’ve been over your house crying. You’ve been crying to me, OK, when you had issues on Housewives, you would come to me and say, ‘You’re the only one I could talk to,’” Jax explained. “Like we have some moments. I just felt like I didn’t mean anything to her. I felt like I was just like that,” he added while clearing his hands.

For Jax, the breaking point in his issues with Lisa came when she didn’t check in on him or his now-estranged wife, Brittany Cartwright, during her pregnancy with their son, Cruz Cauchi. As Jax explained, there was no phone call or congratulations from Lisa, which “bothered” him a lot.

Brittany also voiced similar sentiments on the situation with Lisa, saying, “I had Cruz, didn’t hear a word from her. She never checked on me throughout my entire pregnancy, and I had a very tough pregnancy. I was sick 24/7 but never heard a word from her.”

However, Jax and Brittany later revealed that Lisa did send a gift to them “eight weeks” after the birth of their son. In the end, Jax explained how the ordeal affected him tremendously, stating, “It hurt my feelings.”

Is Jax Taylor in contact with Lisa Vanderpump?

As it turns out, Jax and Lisa haven’t spoken since their sit-down on Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules. The reason? Jax shared: “[It’s] not because I don’t want to, not because of anything going on… We’re busy, and I don’t go to Hollywood that much either, so I don’t make myself available for her to see me or anything like that.”
