The crew that works for Lisa Vanderpump at SUR knows that she's a fountain of wisdom and knowledge. So, when we recently found out that she's asked one of the Vanderpump Rules SURvers for some advice on how to deal with the haters, we were surprised to find out which of her staff was the person she sought out for said advice. (Spoiler Alert: It's Jax Taylor.)
"I think Lisa and I kind of have such a great relationship. We kind of give it to each other. I think I'm the only one that can actually stand up to her a little bit. Everyone else is kind of afraid of her, but she'll give it to me and I'll give it to her, and believe it or not she's actually asked for my advice before," Jax revealed to The Daily Dish.
So why did she seek his counsel? "She was taking a lot of heat on Housewives one year and she's like, 'How do you deal with this?' And this was back when I was taking a lot of heat, I think it was like Season 2 or 3 [of Vanderpump Rules]. I just don't care. I just let things roll off my back and I think that's why I'm able to take all this the way things happens with me just 'cause I have thick skin," he said. "And I try to give the advice to everybody on the show, 'Just don't listen. Stop reading social media. Stop reading every comment. Who cares? It's somebody sitting in their basement just wanting you to give feedback.'"
To be fair, Jax has also definitely learned a lesson or two from being around his boss for as long as he has. "But Lisa is about being a good person and being genuine and being true to yourself," he said. "And that's Lisa. She's like our mother. She just loves to look out for us and take care of us."
We wonder if he listened to that advice going into the upcoming Season 5 reunion. Preview, below.
