Jax Taylor defended Tom Sandoval against backlash on Instagram after seemingly poking fun at the alleged struggles of Sandoval and Tom Schwartz‘s bar, Schwartz & Sandy’s.

As Jax, 44, offered a lengthy explanation regarding his current relationship with Sandoval, 40, claiming the two of them like to poke fun at one another and suggesting fans “move on” from his controversial affair with Raquel Leviss, 28, the father of one was reportedly spotted filming scenes for season 11 with Sandoval and his co-stars, including Schwartz, 40, James Kennedy, 31, and Brock Davies, 33.

“While we don’t have a photo of the entire group sitting together, allegedly [and] according to a boots on the ground, Brock, James, Schwartz, [and] Sandoval filmed with Jax this past Wednesday,” the Queens of Bravo shared with their followers on Instagram.

While Jax took aim at Sandoval for cheating on Ariana Madix, 38, on several occasions after his affair with Raquel was exposed in March, he suggested that Sandoval is in on the joke in a comment shared to a post from Cici Loves You on Instagram.

After the page shared a screenshot of Jax offering Sandoval a job at his new sports bar in Studio City on the heels of claims that Schwartz & Sandy’s has struggled in the light of “Scandoval,” Jax reacted with an additional message.

“We have a long history and we like making it fun at each other it’s harmless, don’t read into things,” he advised. “I want the best for Tom he’s going through a lot and I know he deserved a lot of it but I think it’s time we just let things heal or be and move on.”

“No point in grilling the guy anymore we have all made mistakes,” he added.
