‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Ariana Madix Dishes on Jax & James’ Heated Exchange at Reunion

Ariana Madix saw all the drama go down on the “Vanderpump Rules” reunion!

“Extra” caught up with the reality star, who dished on the “scary” meetup.

In a new trailer, we see James and Jax going at each other. The exchange gets so heated, Andy Cohen has to separate them. Watch it here!

Madix told us, “They yell at each other. They say a lot of the same things back and forth to each other. They hate each other.”

She continued, “Andy Cohen stood up and got in between them. Jax has never hit anyone ever in his life. He likes to threaten to hit people a lot, he likes to be ‘held back,’ but I think you could hold him back with your pinky finger. I don’t think he was actually ever going to hit anybody.”

Ariana didn’t want to get caught in the crossfire, saying, “It was happening right in front of me. I think you could see I was hoping I didn’t get hit with any shrapnel.”

Is there hope for James and Jax? She told us, “I don’t think James and Jax will ever be cool.”

Madix will get into some drama of her own. She revealed, “The whole day was heated. The whole day was 16 hours of heated filming with myself included – a lot of very loud personalities.”


Is the cast in a good place now? “Listen, no, everybody is splintered. There is underlying tension with everybody.”

That doesn’t mean she wouldn’t return next season. “If we have a Season 8, I would love to be back.”

Earlier this month, "Extra" talked to Scheana Shay about the reunion. She confessed it was the easiest one for her so far. "I didn't cry, my lashes stayed on," she said. Watch the video for more!

The three-part reunion kicks off May 6 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
