“Vanderpump Rules” has lost two more stars. Married couple Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced they will not be returning to the popular Bravo show. Taking to their individual social media platforms on Friday evening, the duo dropped the big bombshell. “Vanderpump Rules,” which first aired in 2013, is centered around the bartenders and waitresses of Lisa Vanderpump‘s West Hollywood restaurant, Pump.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, who are expecting their first child, will take time off to focus on their baby.
The news comes just months after “Vanderpump Rules” OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired following a racist incident that was brought to light. Brittany Cartwright announced she was pregnant in September, adding one more expecting mama to the “Pump Rules” family. She joins Stassi, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay, who are all pregnant with their first children.
Jax Taylor and his bride of one year dropped the news they would not be back for season nine at the very same time.

Resident bad boy bartender Jax Taylor posted several shots showing his progress over the past eight years since he started the show. The first picture displayed a young Jax during season one. The last one, showed him on his knees kissing his pregnant wife’s growing belly.
Calling the past eight years some of the “most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life,” he made the “difficult” announcement that “Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules.”
“We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors,” he added before saying thank you to Bravo and Lisa Vanderpump. Teasing that this won’t be the end of the television duo, Jax Taylor shared, “‘We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors.”
Brittany Cartwright posted the news by copying her husband’s statement, leaving many fans with unanswered questions.
The expecting mom, who joined “Vanderpump Rules” in 2016, shared a picture from her first reunion followed by snaps of her engagement to Jax Taylor, their wedding, and her growing baby bump. “Vanderpump Rules” fans want answers as next season hasn’t even been announced.
Viewers don’t think it looks promising with fan favorites Stassi, Kristen, and now, Jax and Brittany out. There have been rumors about different castmates getting spinoffs but nothing is concrete just yet. Will you still watch “Vanderpump Rules” without Jax and Brittany?
