Did Kristen and James Really Hook up in Mexico?

Brittany Cartwright didn't just work on her relationship with Jax Taylor this season of Vanderpump Rules; she also helped repair a major rift between her boyfriend and one of his longtime pals. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

During Part 3 of this season's Vanderpump Rules reunion, you may have caught Brittany alluding to some drama between Jax and Kristen Doute as she talked about how her boyfriend has changed since the untimely passing of his father, Ronald Cauchi, in December 2017. "Everything about him is different and better. He's getting along with Kristen. He's able to get along with my friends. He has just been treating me so much better. It's so different," Brittany told Andy Cohen. "He's just more calm, and he's not talking down on me. He is putting me first on everything." 

Now didn't that make you curious about what caused a brief falling out between Jax and Kristen? Luckily, Kristen recently opened up about what happened between the two of them and shared where they currently stand on Twitter. "Around the time of the finale we stopped talking. Jax and I didn’t speak for 4 months," she shared. "When his father passed we put our differences aside and have never had a better friendship than we do now. I give major credit to @BNCartwright."


Kristen, who seemed to still had some hard feelings about Jax at the reunion after he helped spread the rumor that she hooked up with James Kennedy in Mexico (clip above), commented that she has seen a major change in Jax since his father passed away. "He had to be very vulnerable and very honest and stop putting on this front of whatever emotion he was feeling," she said at the reunion. "I really think it was just Jax [stopping] bullsh--ting."

Jax also asserted that he's a changed man at the reunion. "I don't think there's any possible way I could ever do anything possibly wrong to you again," he said to Brittany after their tumultuous season. "I think of her first, which I never did."
