Jax Taylor Responds To Katie Maloney’s Bar Shade: “She’s Ariana’s Accessory”


Jax Taylor said there’s something about the Something About Her co-owner: “Katie’s just a miserable human being.”

The Valley’s Jax Taylor didn’t mince words when he decided to clap back at Vanderpump Rules’ Katie Maloney.

Asked by The Daily Dish for his response to Katie’s shady Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen comment that his Los Angeles sports bar Jax’s Studio City is just a “bonus room” at the already-established neighboring tavern, Rocco’s, Jax didn’t hold back.

“Katie is an accessory,” he said. “She was Stassi’s accessory. Now, she’s Ariana’s accessory.”

Why are Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney fighting?

Jax and Katie had a history of squabbling when they were both on Vanderpump Rules.

More recently, Katie commented on Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 7 about rumors about Jax “running around” on his now-estranged wife, Brittany Cartwright.

At the time, Jax said: “Katie loves to f-cking just start sh-t. That’s what she does.”

Flash-forward to April 30, when Katie and Ariana Madix appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. A guest asked Katie if she’d go to Jax’s Studio City, a bar he opened last fall.

“Listen. Me and Jax don’t get along. I don’t even know if I’m allowed in there. Why don’t we just go to Rocco’s that’s attached? … Jax’s is a bonus room. It’s not shade. It’s the truth.”


As for his business being connected to Rocco’s, Jax confirmed to The Daily Dish, “It’s attached … all bars are attached to something, but yeah, it’s attached. Isn’t Pump attached to Tom Tom?It’s the same thing.”

Jax then brought up Katie and Ariana’s WeHo sandwich shop, Something About Her. The spot is set to open on May 22, the partners recently announced on WWHL.

“They’ve been subletting that place for the last year, so they’re gonna have to charge at least $50 a sandwich just to make any profit in my eyes,” Jax declared.

And then Jax got personal. “Katie’s just a miserable human being. She’s miserable,” he said. “Katie’s an accessory. She was Stassi’s accessory. Now, she’s Ariana’s accessory.”

Keep up with Jax and the entire cast of The Valley, airing Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and streaming next day on Peacock.
