Jax Breaks Down Over the Passing of His Father

In what might go down as one of the most heartbreaking moments to take place during a Vanderpump Rules reunion, Jax Taylor broke down when talking about the passing of his father last December (clip above). It was a moment that left everyone, including Andy Cohen, fighting back tears. That pain was also something that Ariana Madix could relate to, as she shared on Twitter the same night Part 1 of the Season 6 reunion aired.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

"Sending my love to @lala_kent, @mrjaxtaylor and anyone else who has lost a parent who is watching," she wrote (Lala Kent's dad passed away just last month). "It’s the hardest thing to go through but I know we will all get through it together. Miss my dad every day, but like to think they are all having a cookout up there together."

Jax was certainly thankful for her words of support, writing, "Thanks @ariana2525 as you know, it’s the worst pain anyone can go through."

Kristen Doute also applauded Jax for opening up during the sit-down, and sent support to Lala during this difficult time for her in the wake of her own dad's death, writing, "Kudos to @mrjaxtaylor for keeping it together the way he did during that conversation. We love you and sending all of the love in the world to @lala_ken[t]."

Jax's dad died last December after a battle with cancer. Meanwhile Lala's dad died just last month; no additional details have been provided, but she and a number of the SURvers were in Utah last week for his funeral.

Part 2 of the Season 6 reunion will air Monday at 9/8c. Preview, below.
