Scheana Marie and Jax Taylor were involved in a dramatic screaming match during the first installment of the three-part "Vanderpump Rules" reunion special on Monday night. As fans saw, Taylor blasted Scheana for not calling him after learning of the December 2017 passing of his father, Ronald Cauchi, as she defended her decision, claiming she felt a text message [VIDEO] would be better.

According to Taylor, he received tons of love and support from a number of people, including ex-girlfriends who hate him and fans online that he doesn't even know, but his friend of many years, Scheana Marie, couldn't pick up the phone. Taylor then shut down the idea that a text message would be sufficient and added that the majority of his co-stars actually traveled to Michigan from their homes in Los Angeles to support him as he said goodbye to his father [VIDEO] for the last time.

Scheana says she and Jax are 'very close'

Although Scheana's relationship with Taylor seemed to be far gone during the taping of the reunion special weeks ago, she has since claimed on Twitter that the two of them are "very close." "We have been for years," she tweeted. "I understand why [Jax] was upset but he also knows I was there for him in the way I felt was best at the time," she explained.

"I’ve apologized, we’ve spoken, and all is well," she confirmed.

While Scheana insists that she and Taylor have put their drama behind them, they don't appear to be nearly as close as they once were, and when it comes to hanging out, they don't seem to spend much time together at all. That said, Scheana is still close to Taylor's longtime girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright, who works alongside her as a waitress at SUR Restaurant.

Scheana took a lot of heat during 'Pump Rules' season six

In addition to her strained relationship with Taylor, Scheana was also targeted for her obsession with ex-boyfriend Robert Parks-Valletta, who she began dating just before filming began --- and split from immediately after production wrapped. During the season, Scheana insisted she and the actor were headed for marriage and kids before he ended their romance.
