Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor regrets including Tom Sandoval in his wedding party. Tom served as one of Jax's groomsmen when he tied the knot with Brittany Cartwright in June 2019 in Versailles, Kentucky. Jax hinted that Tom had done something "uncalled for" in the months leading up to their nuptials, which has caused lingering tension between the former close friends.
Jax had originally selected Tom and pal Tom Schwartz to both serve as his best men at the wedding, but he ultimately made the decision to demote Tom to just a groomsman. On VPR, Tom speculated that Jax was angry because he opted to not attend his pre-bachelor party, but according to Jax there's more to the story.
"There's some things he did during this season that haven't played out yet that were just uncalled for, absolutely uncalled for — below the belt, should never, ever happen to a friend — and I made my decision that I did not want him there. I don't want to give it away but it's really uncalled for," Jax told Entertainment Tonight.
"There's things where … you would always expect your best friends to be on your side and have your back and not question your judgment or your character, and I felt like that's what Tom did. That really upset me, because he knows us very well and he knows the type of people that we are and just to even, like, second guess us at all? It just was very disrespectful, and it really hurt my feelings, especially after how hard I worked to try to, like, keep them together," Brittany added.
Jax continued, "I wish he was at the wedding, I just wish he wasn't in the wedding, if that makes any sense. It takes, you know — everybody up there plays a huge role in my life, huge role from the moment I moved to L.A., 'til the day I got married. That's why I had so many groomsmen and I couldn't just pick one. Each one of those guys, I love individually so much, and they've done so much for me, and I just, you know, the things that I was going through with Tom, it just ... it didn't make sense for him to be standing next to me."
Even before VPR's latest season premiered, fans were well aware that things between Jax and Tom weren't the best. Jax raised eyebrows after he unfollowed Tom, Tom's girlfriend Ariana Madix, and costar Kristen Doute on Instagram in August 2019.
Jax and Brittany are eager to start a family, but they've decided to wait until Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent's upcoming weddings pass. "We went and started trying one month and then Stassi and Lala’s wedding, so, and we’re in it. So that’s a problem,” Jax explained during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on January 7.
