What do you do when you find out that your live-in boyfriend of two years cheated on you with a friend and colleague? You do what Brittany Cartwright did on Vanderpump Rules — you tell him to “rot in hell,” and you grab a buddy and go to Vegas for a few days. Jax admitted to his betrayal, and Brittany bailed — if only for a weekend. But did Vanderpump Rules' Brittany date anyone else after she and Jax split up?
Parties on Vanderpump Rules are ideal for letting the cat out of the bag, and in the Season 6 finale, it was no different. Jax’s cheating revelations came to light at Scheana’s masquerade-themed birthday party. But what was different about this instance from other parties and accusations of cheating was how quickly Brittany shut things down. She was all, if you cheated on me, I’m out, and then she left. There wasn’t a lot of questioning of Faith Stowers' story from Brittany, and that was good. She’s a woman who knows what she wants, and she’s a woman who knows how she should be treated. (And she knows not to put the blame solely on the other woman.) Brittany left for Vegas and had some fun! And, because she told Jax she would be single from that weekend on, she was well within her rights to date someone else or take someone else home, at the very least. But… it appears that she didn’t.
From the looks of Brittany’s social media (and I went way back), she didn’t date anyone else seriously from the time Jax cheated on her from the time they got back together. Scheana’s birthday is in the beginning of May, and Brittany’s Instagram posts from May through the summer don’t appear to feature any other romantic partners. There’s a snap from May 21, 2017 about Vegas — so that could have been the Vegas trip she went on after she found out about Jax’s indiscretion.
From there, it’s mostly selfies…
Peppered with dog pics…
And some pics of the other girls from Vanderpump Rules.
"No boys allowed" could have been the theme of Brittany's summer, but that' may only be because she never really fully disengaged from Jax. Brittany admitted to Ariana and Scheana that she and Jax were still sleeping together even though he had cheated on her. Is it the best idea? No. But is it human and understandable? Yes.
Brittany moved across the country to be with Jax, and she invested a lot into their relationship. She loved him, and even though he cheated on her, it's not like you can just flip a switch and turn off feelings. Breakups are messy and confusing, and sometimes, people have sex even though they're not supposed to. It happens. It seems that Brittany didn't date anyone else when she and Jax were on thin ice, probably because Jax was the one she still wanted to be with. They're back together now, but that's not to say that any of this has been easy for Brittany. A recent Instagram post detailed as much:
"7 months have passed," Brittany wrote in the caption. "It’s been tough, but I’m trying to move forward, not back. God Bless." It's hard getting back together with someone your friends don't like, but it's especially hard when the whole country is watching and judging. Heck, it's hard when your friends are judging, too. Scheana recently told Page Six, “We all give [Brittany] advice but she doesn’t take any of it. So we’ve kind of gotten to the point where it’s just like look, you do you, it’s your life.” Yikes.
Hopefully, Brittany knows what she's doing. After all, it's really none of our business whether or not Brittany and Jax work out their issues or not. It's up to them to define their relationship, and for now, these two are staying together.
