If you watched the Vanderpump Rules Season 6 premiere, you probably have a lot of thoughts about Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright's relationship. Even though it seemed like would be pretty much doomed after the rumors that Jax allegedly cheated on Brittany with Faith Stowers, believe it or not, they are still together. That said, Jax and Brittany did break up and get back together in the midst of all the heartache, as they revealed to Entertainment Tonight. Despite all of that, they worked really hard to get back to a good place, like they were at the beginning of their relationship.
"It's hard," Brittany told ET, before adding, "Very, very, very hard … We took some time trying to work on things, but we're back together … six months [back together] and [it’s] still working."
At some point after Faith dropped the bomb that she and Jax allegedly slept together while he was still dating Brittany, the couple went their separate ways. During the premiere, Jax denied Faith's allegations repeatedly and Brittany threatened to leave Jax if he was lying to her.
Their breakup hasn't aired just yet on Bravo, but seeing as Jax and Brittany's fight happened at Scheana Marie's masquerade birthday party (her actual birthday is May 7) and they reportedly started filming Season 6 in early May, it seems most likely they broke up sometime after that. Jax also shared an Instagram on May 25 of himself and Brittany in their masquerade costumes, so there's a chance that's when Scheana's party was held. According to Brittany, they've been back together for six months, so they probably took a break around the end of May or sometime in June, which is seen in the timeline of the pictures below.
Those who watched their spin-off, Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, will also remember their relationship was rocky during the time they were filming. The reality series ended with Brittany staying in Kentucky and Jax going back to Los Angeles. They pretty much fought the entire time they were in Brittany's hometown, but it was revealed in the Dec. 4 Pump Rules episode that they had reconciled. Then, the cheating rumors made against Jax by Faith surfaced.
"Everybody goes through the same things that we do, some good, some bad," Jax also told ET. "We're going through some things, working it out and, yeah, it's going good now. We're doing a lot better then we were." He added, "It's rough, but you know, I love her very much. I hope she loves me just as much as I love you." To that, Brittany said, "I do."
It's important to remember that just because they did break up for a little bit doesn't mean they chose to not spend time together — and here's proof of just that.
