It's been a rollercoaster ride for Jax Taylor's relationship with longtime BFF Tom Sandoval lately, as we've seen during Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. Their friendship strife has included Sandoval being demoted from best man in his wedding to Brittany Cartwright last June, before he was ultimately allowed to be in the wedding party later on. It's a decision Jax still regrets to this day.
"I did change my mind and allow him to not only come to the wedding, but to be in my wedding and do I regret that, yes," Jax told ET recently. "I just wish I would've stood by what I said. I felt I was a little bit bullied into bringing him back in."
He went on to explain exactly what he means: "I wish he was at the wedding, I just wish he wasn't in the wedding, if that makes any sense. Everybody up there plays a huge role in my life, huge role from the moment I moved to L.A., 'til the day I got married. That's why I had so many [groomsmen] and I couldn't just pick one. Each one of those guys, I love individually so much, and they've done so much for me, and I just you know the things that I was going through with Tom, it just... it didn't make sense for him to be standing next to me."
Jax promises fans that as the season progresses the reason for their rift will become more clear. "There's some things he did during this season that haven't played out yet that were just uncalled for, absolutely uncalled for -- below the belt, should never, ever happen to a friend -- and I made my decision that I did not want him there," Jax said when speaking to ET. "I don't want to give it away but it's really uncalled for."
Fans can tune into Vanderpump Rules every Tuesday at 9/8c to see how it all plays out. Relive a highlight from Jax's bachelor party, below.
