Back in April, we asked the following question:
Is the romance between Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor really over for good?
Fast forward about three months and we have a definitive answer from the Vanderpump Rules cast members:
Heck no! It will literally NEVER be over!
Indeed, Cartwright and Taylor stunned a majority of the Internet on Thursday night by announcing their ENGAGEMENT!
The veteran reality stars did so via Instagram, with Brittany sharing a close-up of her impressive diamond ring and a smiling Taylor staring into the camera in the background.
“Omg omg!!!!!!!! We are ENGAGED! What a way to start our summer and season 7!!" wrote Cartwright as a caption, managing to tease both her personal future and professional future at once.
"I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives! I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed!
"I am the happiest girl ever right now."
Cartwright and Taylor, whose journey toward this moment will be chronicled next year on Vanderpump Rules, celebrated their engagement at beachside restaurant Neptune’s Net in Malibu, California.
Taylor, meanwhile, chimed in himself via Instagram by gushing as follows:
She said yes!!! I can't wait for y'all to see how this happened next season!!! I am marrying the woman of my dreams and I could not be happier!!
He then plugged a couple friends/companies who very likely gave him and Brittany a free piece of jewelry and a free meal in exchange:
Make sure y'all tune in season 7 to see how this unfolded. My amazing friend/brother @kcdlovecampaign knocked it out of the park on this ring. I told him a few details but I trusted him and as you can see he came through above and beyond.
When I decided to do this he was the only one I wanted to design Brittany's ring and this is why.. flawless Kyle absolutely flawless.
Also thank you Margaret owner of @Neptunesnet for allowing me to make this special day possible at one of our favorite spots to eat in Malibu.
Why did this announcement take us by surprise?
Why did we never think this day would come?
Because Jax and Brittany seemingly broke up last year amidst a rather intense and ugly cheating scandal.
The former admittedly slept with Faith Stowers, a former SUR staffer Faith Stowers who knows Cartwright pretty well.
But that's not even the end of it, although that in and of itself would put an end to most relationships.
Stowers has talked openly about this affair, stating for the record that Jax said his sex life with Brittany sucked and that he hoped he could have a threesome with Stowers and Cartwright.
He supposedly just wanted to bring Stowers into bed with him and Cartwright, without actually dumping the latter.
Alas, the threesome never materialized, as far as we know, and Jax simply banged Faith on the side.
Stowers then pretended to be pregnant, while Taylor did all he could to win Brittany back over.
"He has betrayed me in so many ways,” Cartwright told the camera during a Vanderpump Rules episode that aired in April, adding:
“He’s cheated on me, he’s begged for me back, he’s played mind games with me.
"And I know that he’s not changing and he’s always going to be the same Jax Taylor he always has been."
And yet, apparently, Cartwright simply can't get enough of this Jax Taylor.
Tweeted Jax this spring:
"I am not perfect and I will never be but I am working very hard on myself.
"I realized later that @BNCartwright is my angel and she makes me want to be a better man."
Welp, we'll see whether or not Taylor was serious.
Because he and Brittany have now taken a serious step in their relationship.
