Lisa Vanderpump Reveals What Changed Her Mind About Brittany Cartwright


As you may remember, Lisa Vanderpump had no interest in hiring Jax Taylor’s girlfriend Brittany Cartwright to work at SUR. Now, Brittany has been working at the restaurant since June and Lisa is thrilled with her performance. The Vanderpump Rules and RHOBH star is opening up about what changed her mind.

“Well, she became part of the show and obviously it’s great for the restaurant to have people that legitimately need to work, and she really wanted to work,” Vanderpump explained to Entertainment Weekly. “We were a couple of waitresses down, and I thought, ‘Why not give her a shot?’ She’s actually fantastic. She really is there four or five nights a week. She’s lovely – I have never met a girl like her. I don’t know if it’s where she’s from, but [fakes a Kentucky accent] ‘everything is absolutely so nice!'”

What do you think of Brittany so far?

  1. I am happy for her. It has to be a few steps up from working at Hooters, and she seems so sweet. I think Jax cares for her more than anyone else before her, but I think he does not appreciate her too much when I hear his comments about being around her at work and at home being too much for him.
    She adds to the show too. The other girls seem to be mean girls for the most part. Maybe it is where she comes from with her southern hospitality. 😉

    1. I agree Real Sandy. Jacks just does that crap for the tv camera when he runs her down, or their relationship. He needs to get a different storyline because at this point, I’d prefer Brittany on the show to him. I couldn’t get over how different Sheena looked on the premiere. At first I thought it was just the crazy contacts but then Lala brought up the nose job, so that added to it.

      1. Sheena always looks retouched to me. She may know her plastic surgeon quite well by now whomever she or he is, with all the business she gives to him or her.

      2. I like Brittany over Jax also. I think he sabotages every relationship he has ever had. It looks like from the previews that they turn on Sheena. She did the same thing to Ariana to be in a click with the mean girls. So turn about is fair play. I always loved Ariana, she was a good friend to Sheena & got stabbed in the back. I also love both Toms and of course my favorite LVP.

    2. Addendum: Oh now southern hospitality is now a character trait or flaw?! I retract if someone took that as a slur for some reason. I said, I am happy for her. I made no comments about her fuller face. I mentioned no ulterior motives either. Being a regular on a popular reality show is great incentive for many and she fits in well.
      Have a great day!

    3. ITA! I like her. It’s nice to see someone other than the self-involved brats. I really like her, both Toms & Ariana. I started to like Katie without the 2 hags (Stassi/Kristen). But she is starting to act like them again. The previews seem to show Tom doesn’t like her back to her old ways with the 2 hags. Good for him; hope he puts his foot down.

  2. She’s neither here nor there as far as I’m concerned. She seems genuine and not a total bitch like Lala, whom I hate along with James. Jax stays.

    1. Lala is gorgeous and knows it, but she is repulsive otherwise and James too. Both are prima donnas. Lisa is too nice to James too…probably because he is friends with her son, and she is friends with his parents. He takes advantage of that too.

      1. Awww, I wasn’t going to say anything about it, but now that you guys mentioned it, I noticed it too. I wouldn’t go as far as to say big (compared to the others) just a bit fuller in the face. I honestly thought it was her boob job that made her look bigger, but I noticed some weight in the face. She is still gorgeous and I won’t shame her for “not having her summer body”. lol. Lala and James were disgusting with their fat shaming..ESPECIALLY as neither of them look healthy at all. I doubt they are skinny just by eating healthy and working out, but maybe it’s just the age and metabolism.

  3. Jax hasn’t changed & never will. He has small penis syndrome like I stated last season. He’s a coke head & probably will need his 4th nose job bc of it. Why this girl bothers with this low life is beyond me! Ppl on social media R ruthless abt her being frm Kentucky. Well get educated we have outstanding ppl & the most beautiful country in the USA! I’m not a native Kentuckian but have lived here for many yrs. I’m a NYer,born & raised. The ppl here R so welcoming. Raising kids here is wonderful. If you haven’t traveled don’t knock it. My girls were born in Germany. I’ve traveled all my life many haven’t! It’s so ignorant & narrow minded to judge ppl based on where they were born let alone to judge period. These ppl on this show have a lot of growing up to do. They R shallow as we have all seen & some R very cruel. That’s not judging it’s fact. Humiliating a person is so wrong! Lala& James R so full of rage& reckless. If anything I pity them. Jax is just toxic& needs to go. I’m out. Peace!

    1. I will never understand commentary that concludes someone has certain flaws or specific character traits simply because they come from a state the poster isn’t familiar with, that shows their ignorance rather than highlighting other’s. I would love to see Kentucky and any other state I could get to. I think it would be cool to take a motor home and set up camp where the usuals set up hummingbird feeders and flower baskets. I mean whose to say that it is less dignified than paying $3,500 a night for a hotel room in New York City? To do what? Spend another obscene amount of money to see a show or something? I guess. I’m fairly certain the 1st choice would mean getting to know some people, cooking with a camp stove, sitting out under the stars, much, much better than hoping to see a different kind of star hanging around NYC. Variety is the spice of life.

  4. You know, I did not even notice Brittany looked fuller, she is just so sweet & a breadth of freshair unlike the others. She’s too good for Jax.

    1. ITA! Love Brittany, both Toms & Ariana. Can’t stand Stassi or Kristen. I was starting to like Katie, but she changed once she was around the mean girls.

  5. Oh and Ariana stil isn’t the least bit funny even though she takes sketch comedy VERY seriously. Maybe that’s the problem.
