They may not be reality TV stars anymore, but there’s still constant drama among the former cast members of Vanderpump Rules.
The latest round of trouble began last month, when Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark got married in Italy.
Now, Stassi and Beau had already tied the knot in a small civil ceremony during the pandemic, but the Italian nuptials were their long-postponed celebration of love, attended by all of their family and friend.
Or perhaps we should say most of their family and friends …
As we reported last month, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright skipped Stassi and Beau’s wedding.
And Stassi and Beau were decidedly not happy about the manner in which their friends bailed on the occasion.
On their podcast, the newlyweds alleged that Jax and Brittany RSVP’d then canceled at the last minute — this, after months of mocking Stassi and Beau behind their backs.
Stassi and Jax put the Taylors on blast for their alleged rudeness, and it seems that since then, Jax has been making the situation worse by bombarding Stassi with “rage texts.”
This last tidbit comes to us not from Stassi and Beau but from Brittany herself, who shared her side of the story during a recent appearance on Scheana Shay’s podcast.
“I don’t actually know what all of the text messages were. I, personally, never sent any text messages,” Brittany told Scheana.
“I will make that very clear, because I would never do that to them. I was planning on going 1000, 100 percent.”
Brittany acknowledged that Jax “shouldn’t have done it,” noting that he’s been “very upset” since the wedding.
“Jax started getting in his head, getting worked up about flying with the baby,” Brittany explained when asked about her reasons for canceling.
“You know how Jax is, he’ll just text and rage text … He was expressing his doubts and that he didn’t really think he wanted to go anymore,” she continued.
“He was telling [Stassi and Beau’s] best friend Rob or something and [he] ended up showing them the message.”
Cartwright explained that she’s since tried to make this right with the Clarks.
“I apologized like, ‘I’m so sorry we’re still planning on coming,'” Brittany recalled.
“[Stassi and Beau] got really mad at both of us and didn’t really talk to us for a couple of weeks … We didn’t hardly hear from them, and I kept saying, ‘I’m so sorry that he did that.'”
Brit went on to explain that the situation was stressful for all involved.
“It was so nerve wracking,” she told Scheana.
“I was breaking out in hives. I did not want to upset them. I wanted to make it … It was down to the last minute, like, ‘Am I gonna go by myself? What am I gonna do?’
“I felt so bad, and I still feel bad,” Brittany added.
“I’m just trying to give her time. Maybe in like a couple [of] months, I don’t know, maybe we’ll be able one day and talk it over.”
Scheana was sympathetic, telling Brittany that Stassi “should have more compassion for the situation.”
“Let’s point out the fact that you were at her wedding, her real wedding, her first wedding,” Scheana said.
“You were there. You helped plan. This is a second wedding celebration out of country. You have a child. Your mom just lost a dear friend,” Shay continued.
“You didn’t have a passport [for Cruz] and you were still trying to get there up until the last day.”
Brittany seemed to appreciate the support, but she concluded by revealing that she still hasn’t hear back from Stassi.
“I haven’t gotten any response just yet,” she shared. “I’ll try again in a couple weeks or something. I don’t know. I just like to make things right.”
Yes, these people are still living like they’re on a reality show — all they’re missing are the all-important camera crews and paychecks!
