Jax Taylor Reveals Where Things Stand with James Kennedy Now and It's Going to Be Hard to Believe

But you better believe it, #PumpRules fans.

Jax Taylor on Sitting Next to James Kennedy at the Reunion

They say a picture's worth a thousand words, and you better believe a million thoughts raced through our minds when we saw some photos of archnemeses Jax Taylor and James Kennedy actually seeming to get along earlier this summer. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Wed. 9/8c. Stream next day and catch up on past seasons on Peacock.

Well, that goodwill is apparently here to say, according to Jax himself. “He’s not my best friend by any means. But I mean, he’s fine. I’m kind of closer with him in passing,” Jax recently told Us Weekly. “I don’t really have such a hatred towards him anymore.” 

Jax went on to clarify that he's probably not going to give James a call to hang out anytime soon, but if he sees him in a group setting, he'll be cordial toward him. “What I can say is … I can tolerate him now," Jax explained. 

Of course, Jax and James once had one of the most intense beefs in Vanderpump Rules history, nearly coming to blows on a couple of occasions. However, the two seemed positively chummy as they sat right next to one another during last season's Vanderpump Rules reunion. "It was an interesting reunion, a lot of interesting things happened. A lot of special guests came on. We had people coming, we had people going," Jax told The Daily Dish after filming the reunion. "My placement was interesting. I was right next to James. Like literally right next to James. When I walked in 8 o'clock in the morning, I was pissed. I was livid, like, 'Why did you guys do this?' But you're gonna see what happens. I was even shocked." 

Relive those shocking fun times among the Vanderpump Rules dudes, below.

Did James Date Kristen Just to Get on the Show?
