Jax Taylor Spills on 'Controlling' Tom, 'Manipulated' Raquel Affair

Not surprised? Former Vanderpump Rules castmates Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright weighed in on the "Scandoval" affair during a candid convo with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, March 22.

ICYMI, Tom Sandoval, 40, and Ariana Madix, 37, called it quits after nearly 10 years together after she found a sexually explicit video of costar Raquel Leviss on Tom's phone.

Jax shared when it comes to the affair that's shook Bravo, he feels his longtime friend and former costar is a "controlling person" who enjoys the "fangirl" aspect of Raquel.

"He can't control Ariana," Jax explained. "... [Raquel] is easily manipulated. She's co-dependent."

So, were they surprised to hear about the affair? Jax said yes, but recalled seeing the two at a Labor Day party now that he's thinking back.

"None of us knew what was going on until it broke," Brittany added, revealing she's spoken to Ariana who is "definitely really really mad and having a hard time," but "going to be better than ever after all of this."

Jax also teased his return to TV and the couple have a brand-new podcast for fans to enjoy! Listen back to the full interview for more and check out When Reality Hits With Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright launching March 28th.

Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
