Nothing to see here — yet. On Wednesday's premiere of Vanderpump Rules, a new side of Jax Taylor was revealed, and the former bad boy might be ready to settle down. While visiting girlfriend Brittany Cartwright's family in rural Kentucky, Taylor faced a bunch of questions on whether he would soon marry his love of two years. Shocking to most, Taylor actually asked for Cathwright's mother's blessing, and even revealed he had a ring designer.
"I have a ring designer…and this is what it's going to look like," he said as he showed off the sparkler. He received her mother's blessing, but he has yet to ask Cathwright's father, which, naturally, may prove to be a little more difficult.
So, no wedding bells just yet. Prior to the season premiere, Cathwright revealed why their engagement has been put off for so long. "You know, [Jax] has to go to basically all the different family members and so they pretty much bring it up a lot in every conversation,” Cartwright told the publication. “But it’s because they’re just trying to make sure I’m OK, because I moved all the way across from Kentucky to L.A. It’s a big change and all this time that’s been taken way for them to spend with me, they want to make sure it’s worth something. So they’re just looking out for me and they just want to make sure that I’m making good decisions.”
During the same interview, Taylor explained that cultural differences added some pressure to take their relationship to the next level. “She grew up in a little bit more of a conservative environment than I did, so I mean getting married and that stuff, it’s very traditional. I’m not used to that. My family’s not a very traditional family, so that was a little… I felt a little uncomfortable with that, but it’s not because it’s me, it’s just the way she grew up."
All in all, stay tuned.
