For weeks, we've been hearing the Vanderpump Rules crew tease an absolutely epic Season 7 reunion, and they weren't kidding. Part 1 of this season's reunion kicked off on Monday night, and it culminated in an intense face-off between Jax Taylor and James Kennedy after the DJ made a comment concerning Jax's late father, Ronald Cauchi, which you can view, above.
Jax later addressed the heated moment on Twitter Monday night. "Talk to me after you have lost a parent, and [someone] says something like that or maybe you have and you can look the other way, I can not and will not," he tweeted. "I will always always go after anyone who says something about my father."
The SUR bartender went on to say that he still lashes out whenever anyone talks about his father, who passed away after a battle with cancer in December 2017. "I only lash out when you talk about them, as I feel anyone would," he shared on Twitter. "What type of human speaks on someone’s father who recently passed, tv show aside... seriously."
Jax added in another tweet, "Listen if [any one] of my friends went off on me after losing a parent, I would just take it and realize this person is going through something right now, and walk away, that is common f--king sense."
We'll have to wait and see if it's possible for Jax and James to ever come back from their reunion blow-out, but Jax did show remorse for how he spoke to James' girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, during the reunion. "I later went back and apologized for saying that to her, she was just in my shooting range and that was wrong," he tweeted, also noting that fans should stay tuned and watch all three parts of the reunion before passing any judgment.
Part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules Season 7 reunion is bound to be just as explosive. Watch a preview of what's coming up on Monday at 9/8c, below.
