Billie Lee, the transgender star of Vanderpump Rules has revealed that former cast member Jax Taylor was usually high on drugs while filming the show.
“Jax was very, very difficult to work with and was usually on drugs,” Billie said on an episode of the 2 Servings of Fruit podcast. “He was very agitated and angry and producers would dance around that.”
She also said she heard former cast member Stassi Shroeder making racist remarks.
Stassi was fired from the show after her racism was exposed by the show's only Black cast member.

“I heard she would say racist things and I was warned to be really careful with her. [But] I kept trying to educate,” Billie told the hosts. “I even sent them connections to GLAAD to do media training so if they were on the red carpet, they would know the right terms and pronouns, and no one cared. Everyone declined and that’s a part of being cis privilege, and also white privilege.”
“It’s crazy because all these people I would warn over and over and try to educate them, they ended up all being fired,” she added.
