Looks like Jax Taylor won’t be getting a bartending gig at TomTom any time soon.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 40, took to social media to shade Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz over their restaurant and lounge, TomTom. Both Sandoval, 36, and Schwartz, 37, invested $50,000 into opening TomTom and $50,000 into the new garden lounge in the space next door with Lisa Vanderpump.
Taylor shared two innocent-looking photos on Instagram Wednesday, but he got vicious in the comments.
“I gotta say, I hate the fact that Tom and Tom have prospered with that business and that yes you’ve made mistakes in your life but you’ve turned yourself around and you own everything that you’ve ever done,” one fan wrote. “You should have a restaurant or bar that’s yours and only ours and you need to find an investor to help make that happen and leave them there behind because I think you and Britney would be happier in the long run [sic].”
Taylor married Brittany Cartwright, 31, in June.
The fan ended her sentiment with, “Don’t know you but I’m proud of you.”
Taylor responded, “I would never want to own a bar in Hollywood it’s a money pit. It never ends up well. But thanks.”
Coincidentally, Taylor’s business partner in his new “Just Add X” drink mixer venture is Lance Bass. Bass, who officiated Taylor and Cartwright’s wedding, owns Rocco’s WeHo, which is located a few doors down from TomTom.
While TomTom was forced to temporarily close amid the coronavirus pandemic, Schwartz and Sandoval helped their out-of-work staff by donating 100 percent of their earnings from Cameo appearances to their bartenders, hosts and waitresses. The duo also matched up to $10,000 in donations and they have raised $50,000 so far.
Taylor’s comments come just a day after Sandoval proclaimed that his almost 20-year friendship with Taylor was never a “safe place” on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
“I think Jax just looks for dirt in order to throw it around cause he gets bored or whatever,” Sandoval said. “I mean, I don’t really tell him things anyways cause he’s never really been a safe place. I mean it’s always leverage against you. He’ll bring it up even if he’s just bored in a conversation.”x
