A whole lot has happened since we were first introduced to SUR's finest. Sure enough, 8 seasons later, and we've said bye to more faces than we could possibly count. But this past week, Lisa Vanderpump sat down to reveal what's really going down when the cameras stop rolling.
For starters, the Vanderpump Rules star had a whole lot to say about Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor's decision to leave the series next season. In fact, it appears we weren't the only ones shocked by their announcement. "Was I surprised what they 'decided?' Well, if you put it like that, yeah," Lisa admitted, hinting that they didn't leave the show on their own.
But that's not all she had to say for herself. Ever wondered who might have been behind their sudden departure? Perhaps not Mrs. Vanderpump, after all. "Who makes the rules? It’s not me…" Lisa confessed. "Bravo, they produce the show... they make most of the decisions." Consider us intrigued...
In case you forgot, Jax Taylor himself first broke the news back in December. And you can bet it left us with a whole lot of questions. After all, how could the show go on without our favorite troublemaker? How did he explain it? "We are excited to take this time to focus on [our] growing family," Taylor explained of him and his wife.
Nonetheless, "Bravo... and our Vanderpump castmates will always remain close to our hearts," Taylor continued. As for the rest of us? "Thank you to all the fans who have shared our journey with us and supported us through everything. We love you," the Vanderpump Rules star gushed.
Safe to say, while we may be saying bye to them on our screen, we've got a feeling this is only the beginning. In fact, with baby Taylor set to join this world next month, we can't wait to watch Jax and Brittany embrace their new titles as mom and dad.
Until then, stay tuned.
