Vanderpump Rules Update: Why Did Stassi Break Jax Taylor’s Nose?
There was a startling confession from Stassi Schroeder in the Vanderpump RulesSeason 1 reunion: She once broke ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor’s nose.
At the reunion, host Andy Cohen spoke with the SUR staff and Lisa Vanderpump about their tumultuous relationship. Between breakups and allegations of cheating on both sides, Jax and Stassi certainly had their share of fights. Andy asked whether the former couple’s arguments were ever physically violent.
Jax admitted, “She busted my nose” when they were visiting Chicago. Stassi then asked Jax if he deserved it. “I deserve it all,” Jax replied.
When their co-stars Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute went on AfterBuzz TV to rehash the reunion, they explained how uncomfortable it was to have that moment brought up, since they didn’t want to out Stassi. However, they did weigh in on the event, explaining that it happened a long time ago and they’d already discussed it at length amongst themselves.
As for what prompted the physical altercation, Kristen says, “He was dishonest about a girl. … He didn’t, like, technically cheat on her...” She trails off there, but admits, “It was a scary scenario.”
Although Stassi admitted to physically hurting Jax in a lighthearted tone, Kristen says her friend knew at the time how serious the situation was. “It was such a long time ago,” explains Kristen. “It’s not that we take it lightly, it’s just that bringing it up again. ... When you think about the fact that tiny little Stassi actually broke his nose — I don’t know that she actually broke it, bloodied it — she was scared. She was, like, petrified that night that she could even do something like that.”
