The #PumpRules SURver breaks down how he and his ex were able to move past all the drama.

Why Are Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder Now Friends?

To say that things between Jax Taylor and former flame Stassi Schroeder were once tense would be an understatement. But it's been years since the former couple broke up, and the two have since been able to bury the hatchet and move past the drama to become, dare we say it, pals.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

"It's actually great. I feel like Stassi and I have been really cool. No one would have ever thought that, because the last five years have been pretty tough on us," Jax told The Daily Dish. "And I think we're at a place now that we kind of came full circle. We can kind of realize who we are. We can make fun of each other now. We can kind of let it go; it's been so many years. I think we just click. We laugh at each other's jokes. She's a great girl. She's very smart. She's very intelligent and she's a good person."

Both Jax and Stassi have moved on. The Vanderpump Rules bartender is currently dating Brittany Cartwright, while Stassi is enjoying the single life after ending a two-year-plus relationship with Patrick Meagher over the summer. So, what kind of guy does Jax think should pursue his sassy ex? "She's a firecracker," he said. "It's gonna take a certain kind of human being to date her."

You can see what's next for Jax, Stassi and their pals every Monday at 9/8c. Check out a preview, below.
