“Vanderpump Rules” star Jax Taylor has at least one person in his corner after Faith Stowers‘ accusations, his wife’s bestie Zack Wickham. Brittany Cartwright‘s longtime best friend is coming out swinging in Jax’s defense after Bravo fans, as well as Stowers, called on the network to fire him after axing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. As The Blast reported, both former SUR waitresses were canned earlier this week after their racist actions from 2018 against Faith Stowers came to light.
After the ladies were fired off the hit show, fans immediately turned their sights onto Jax Taylor calling him “sexiest,” “homophobic,” and “racist.” Now, Brittany’s BFF, who is openly gay, is speaking out on Jax Taylor’s behalf and is 100% in his corner.
Taking to his social media on Thursday, June 11, Zack Wickham began his lengthy post by writing, “I’ve known Jax Taylor since he started dating my best friend Brittany Cartwright. And I will say, there is no one quite like him.”
“He makes you laugh, he makes you angry, he can be stubborn as hell … Jax is also the perfect TV villain and has played into that very well over the past eight seasons,” he continued. While admitting that Jax Taylor has done some “bad things,” like cheating on Brittany with Faith during season six, Zack explained, “There’s a big difference between being a controversial person on TV and an ass on Twitter than being accused of being a racist, homophobic and transphobic.”
He then turned his focus on Faith Stowers, stating that she slept with Jax for a storyline on the show. “Faith intentionally went after Jax to get together with him (and clearly was doing it for press). She did it to try and have a story line on the show,” Zack alleged, before adding, “I am in disbelief as to the claims Faith is now making.”
When it comes to defending his “Vanderpump Rules” family, it’s not only Jax Taylor who’s character Zack is vouching for.
He also rushed to Kristen Doute’s side, stating that she’s “one of the most generous and kind humans I know that goes to bat for anyone.” Zack also called Kristen the “most fiercely loyal human to her friends,” adding, that she’s paying for her actions with “her livelihood and reputation, which is not deserved in any way.” Zack then went on to give an example, saying that Kristen Doute didn’t even promote her book on Blackout Tuesday because “she didn’t want to pull focus from the Black Lives Matter cause.”
