‘Vanderpump Rules’ Stars Jax and Brittany ‘Took Some Time’ Apart Following Cheating Bombshell (Exclusive)

By

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s relationship almost didn’t survive this season of Vanderpump Rules.

On last week’s season six premiere, former SUR server Faith Stowers claimed she hooked up with Jax -- in front of an elderly woman whom she was caring for -- while he was with Brittany. She went so far as to claim that she may even be pregnant with Jax’s baby. Those statements rocked Scheana Shay’s birthday party, and sent Brittany into a mini-spiral, threatening to leave Jax.

“It's obviously tough,” Jax tells ET of rewatching the moment play out on TV. “Obviously we've gone through some things.”

ET caught up with Jax and Brittany at Daily Mail’s “Unwrap the Holidays” party in New York City, where they said they hope sharing their experience on TV will help others going through something similar.

“It's hard,” Brittany shares. “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.”

“Everybody goes through the same things that we do, some good, some bad,” Jax notes. “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.”

“It's rough, but you know, I love her very much,” he continues. “I hope she loves me just as much as I love you.”

“I do,” Brittany confesses.

The couple was joined by co-star Stassi Schroeder on the red carpet, who previously shared her reaction to the cheating bombshell with ET.

“I was not surprised,” she told ET. “Nothing Jax does surprises me, but it was more devastating than anything else, because I think Brittany is such a wonderful person. I feel like, I can handle that stuff, there are a lot of girls where we can handle it, but she's such a kind, innocent woman that it made us all really sad and angry.”

Tune into season six of Vanderpump Rules every Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo to see how the drama unfolds. For more from our chat with Stassi, check out the video below.
