The heartbreaking news about Taylor's father's death caused him great grief at the start of the episode, and likely caused his bizarre breakdown. At one point, Taylor told Andy Cohen about the loss. "He was my best friend. I just talked to him the night before. I Face Timed him. After Christmas I get that phone call from my mother," he said while sobbing.
"We were actually on our way to dinner. My mom was screaming saying 'Your father died.' She took over driving and ever since they I can't imagine myself without her," he said about his girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright.
"I don't think I've ever been around somebody so amazing. I got that phone call and she just took over. Did the phone, did the planes. I'm just sitting in the corner shaking. She took over. After everything I've put this girl over," he confessed.
Somehow, they managed to mend ties and rekindled their romance — even after Taylor's infidelity and their scandalous breakup.
Speaking of the cheating drama, Taylor told Cohen that he did not know there was a lady in her 90s in the apartment while he was having sex with Faith Stowers.
"I feel bad for that person. I feel bad for whoever would hire that horrible person that would do that to an old lady," Cartwright said about the situation.
"Why did you do it?" Cohen asked.
"That's the million-dollar question. We'd been arguing a lot. And that's my way to get out of a relationship, cheat. Instead of being an adult and actually getting help and trying to figure out why we do these things. I do these things. I take the cowardly way out. It could have been any person that walked by. It could have been a hole in the wall," Taylor said.
"It's so f**ked up," Cartwright said.
"I put her through the ringer," he admitted, and his best buddy Tom Sandoval agreed. "You were kind of a f**king d**k this summer."
Taylor and Cartwright confirmed that they were not using protection and Katie Maloney weighed in.
"I'll tell you how babies are made, so basically what you're doing will make a baby."
"I feel like my dad has taken over," Taylor said. "Yes, I'm ready to be a dad, I'm ready to be the best dad just like my father. The worst thing in my entire life happened. I just need to be the dad. I want to be exactly how my father was. Exactly to a T."
Taylor's anger over his father's death somehow turned into an emotional fight with Scheana Marie.
"Jax loves to deflect everything off himself," Marie said.
"You tried to set her up on dates and everything," he said about Cartwright and the hot bartender Adam.
"That was after because you did this to me," Marie said about getting back at him for the cruel comments.
Cohen repeated that Marie once said Taylor was "threatened by Rob because he's taller than you and more successful." Hearing this, Taylor taunted her, saying: "That's great how did it work out for you?"
"F**k you," she fire back, as Taylor lost his temper.
"You didn't even call me when my father died," he screamed. "Are you kidding me? Check your f**king text messages. F**k you for saying that. I texted you immediately," Marie said and Cartwright reminded Taylor that she did text.
A sobbing Marie stormed off the stage as even Sandoval told Taylor she contacted him.
Ariana Madix followed her off stage and tried to calm her down.
"He's upset about his dad. He's projecting to you," she told her crying friend.
"I sent you a message that he could read over and over and over again," Marie explained about her intentions.
Kristen Doute hugged Taylor and tried to calm him down. "You're sad about your dad and you're misdirecting your anger."
But he didn't stop, saying that he visited Marie in Vegas two weeks prior and claimed she was rude to him.
"F**k you you can't even keep a boyfriend for more than five minutes," he yelled while she was still off-stage.
"Once in a while be a human being. Stop being 'I'm on a TV show' all the damn time. Maybe that's why half of her relationship have gone down the sh*tter."
Marie also had a falling out with LaLa Kent.
"You sh*t on me a lot this season," Marie said but Kent said Marie was self-absorbed.
"I felt like when she got her gig in Vegas I let her know how extremely proud I was and I didn't get a how's it going? I don't need to put in a 100% in and not get anything," Kent said.
Then, Marie opened up about her miserable relationship with Valletta.
"I never meant to discredit Shay and he was f**king amazing. He had my back, he never left me because of the show. And for Rob to so quickly shut off from the show and break up with me two weeks after we wrapped. Did you just stay with me because you didn't want me to have a storyline of a breakup?"
"Manipulation at its finest," Doute said and Kent dropped a bombshell.
"He's texting Jax!"
A sobbing Marie responded: "I was head over heels in love with him, I was for a long time and it didn't work out. I was in love with him for 12 years and that broke my heart. Rob genuinely broke my f**king heart."
Lisa Vanderpump ripped into him. "He's coming into her life and her show. He was there because of her so to humiliate her was totally unfair."
Even Kent defended her: "This girl put in her heart and soul and effort into everything she did. And the fact was my man is the only reason Rob ever came around. The only time he would come out. Scheana I wanted to deck him."
"I'm glad that you're out of that," Madix told her.
"I'm glad I'm out of that," Schroeder said, crying. "I'm glad I'm out of it. I want to be able to wake up and live my life the exact way I want to live it. I want someone to love me, accept me. That's all I want."
Sandoval and Tom Schwartz' business with Vanderpump seemed to be on the rocks as she kept calling them "junior partners."
"I just adore these two and I think they bring great energy to the equation. Junior partners."
"How emasculating of you," Cohen quipped.
"I've never actually cashed their checks," she said as Cohen told her she was "holding it over them."
"If they don't like it they can suck it," Vanderpump said.
