After mentioning Jax’s name on the reunion stage, host Andy Cohen asks Katie to share some of the rumors that were being said about him. “Just like he was hooking up with a waitress or something about bathroom sex,” she explains. “There was just like random stuff that like over like maybe one month here, a few months later there’s something here.”

Katie clarifies that all the allegations were solely online, while Lala confirms that there were “a lot of [rumors]” circulating at one point.


Andy then asks Scheana if she thought there was any truth to the infidelity chatter regarding Jax, to which she replies, “For a second… but [Brittany] had gone through his phone and DMs and found nothing.”

As for Katie’s reaction to Scheana’s response? She said about the rumors: “They weren’t texting, cheating. It was like he’s rolling into the bar, and we’re getting it on in the bathroom. You’re not going to find that in the text.”
