Jax Taylor was hit with a bombshell in the season 6 premiere of Vanderpump Rules when a rumour spread that he was unfaithful to girlfriend Brittany Cartwright. Flash forward a week, and Jax has come clean and admitted that he did indeed do the unthinkable and cheated on Brittany with ex-SURver, Faith Stowers.
With the truth now out there, and a relationship seemingly in limbo, here’s everything we know about the cheating scandal that’s rocking SUR.
At Scheana’s birthday party, Faith Stowers confided in James Kennedy that she had a heated night with Jax while he was still very much dating Brittany.
As if the cheating bombshell wasn’t jaw-dropping enough, Faith revealed that Jax didn’t use protection, and that she’s worried she might be pregnant because she hasn’t had her period.
News of Jax’s cheating spread like wildfire through Scheana’s party, forcing Brittany to confront Jax, and the staff of SUR to choose sides.
Jax vehemently denied the accusations the night of Scheana’s party, but eventually confessed the truth to Brittany the next morning.
Who is Faith, and is She Pregnant?
Faith once worked at SUR and is still friends with some of the SURvers, particularly Lala and James, which explains why James was the one she ran to with the news of her hookup with Jax.

She was even spotted hanging out with the men of SUR, Jax included, back in April.

So is Faith pregnant? Well, if her Instagram photo from October is anything to go by, it’s probably safe to say that she isn’t currently pregnant with Jax’s child, considering their tryst happened over half a year ago.

Are Jax and Brittany Still Together?
Jax appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after the cheating episode aired to give an update on the status of his relationship with Brittany.
“It’s been seven months since this happened,” Jax said, “in the beginning I was taking Brittany for granted. I don’t think I appreciated her as much as I [should]… she’s the most amazing girl I’ve ever had in my life… we’re in a great place right now, I hope it stays that way, but it’s a work in progress. Nobody’s perfect.”
Waiting for the news of his cheating to become public wasn’t easy for Jax, “it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, I was really nervous today, which I should be, but like I said, I deserve all of this,” he admitted to Andy Cohen. “I don’t care if you drag me through the mud, I just want to make sure Brittany is okay.”
During his appearance on WWHL Jax said he’s “absolutely” been faithful in the past seven months and that his relationship with Brittany is “stronger now than it’s ever actually been.”
