The Daily Dish Vanderpump Rules

Bethenny Frankel Is the Latest Real Housewife Jax Taylor Says He's Kissed

He thinks the #RHONY mogul's Skinnygirl margaritas are "delicious," too.

The Vanderpump Rules Cast Hits NYC for the VanderCrawl

As one of the employees of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump, Jax Taylor has been around plenty of Housewives over the years. However, he's closer to some more than others. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

In particular, Jax, who said he has kissed Housewives from four different cities, had one memorable encounter with The Real Housewives of New York City's Bethenny Frankel. "I love Bethenny," Jax said during a recent Facebook Live video with PEOPLE, in which he taste-tested various Real Housewives' liquor lines. "She's such a wonderful person. I met her a few years back when she had a couple of her launches for Skinnygirl Margarita. We had a great time. We had a great Christmas party. Even kissed her a little bit."

It's unclear if Jax was actually referring to a 2015 Valentine's Day party that Bethenny hosted, which was attended by her RHONY castmates as well, or if this was a completely separate encounter, but as you can see, he and the mogul did a little bit of friendly smooching during the February shindig. As for the Skinnygirl Spicy Lime Margarita that Jax tasted, he said, "It's delicious."

Bethenny and Jax were spotted leaning in to give each other a peck at the RHONY mogul's Valentine's launch party for the Skinnygirl Spicy Lime Margarita in February 2015. 

Even though Bethenny had some drama with Sonja Morgan last season of RHONY over her new Tipsy Girl Sparkling Rosé line, Jax said the bubbly was "actually really good." He also said that Sonja is "wonderful." 

Jax is also a big fan of Ramona Singer. "We've gone out to dinner a few times. Went out for drinks a few times. She's just such a great woman. Great sense of humor," he said. "She's very obnoxious, she's very out there, and I think that's what I like about her. She's just great. I love her spirit, I love her personality, and I love everything she brings to the table." 

But he doesn't love her Pinot Grigio as much. "Not sure if I love her wine so much, but I love Ramona," Jax said. "It's OK. It's all right. It's not the best." 

Jax also sampled LVP Sangria, Teresa Giudice's Fabellini Prosecco, and Heather and Terry Dubrow's Consult Shake (to help him detox, you know). However, Jax refused to try one Housewives alum's libation: Brandi Glanville's Unfiltered Blonde. "Take this out of here. I don't want this," Jax protested. "I hate that bitch. Take it out of here."

Of course, Lisa and Brandi are in a not-so-great place these days, and it seems as though Jax is backing up his boss. For the record, Jax's drink of choice is vodka on the rocks with three limes.

Jax will have plenty of drama of his own in the new season of Vanderpump Rules premiering Monday, November 7 at 9/8c. Get a sneak peek of it, below.
