Brittany Cartwright celebrated her birthday early. Days before her birthday on Jan. 25, the former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star got an early start to her 34th birthday when she traveled to Las Vegas with a group of friends.
Here’s what you need to know:
In a series of posts on her Instagram Story on Jan. 20 and 21, Cartwright was photographed with a group of friends, including “Vanderpump Rules” alum Kristen Doute, on their way to Sin City. “Vegas bounddddd,” Cartwright captioned a picture from an airplane.
She later shared photos after arriving in Vegas, including a shot taken in a suite in the Palazzo Tower that showed a room full of red, pink and white birthday balloons and a tub full of rose petals. Cartwright also posted a mirror selfie before heading to a casino at the resort. “Wish me luck winning some money lol,” she wrote.
Other photos and videos showed the group dancing and partying, and another showed the birthday girl at a restaurant with a large platter of sweet treats in front of her while her friends sang her “Happy Birthday.” A personalized birthday menu was served for Cartwright on the second night as the group visited the Lavo Italian Restaurant & Lounge.
Doute also shared a group photo taken at the Tao at the Venetian Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Cartwright sat in the middle of the group as they playfully posed for the camera. The group included friends Zack Wickham, Elaine Ratner and more.
“What Happens in Vegas… Lands on Instagram,” Doute captioned the pic.
A video later shared by Doute also included “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay attending the celebration. Shay also shared a picture as she posed with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars at the Palazzo during a glamorous girls’ night out. Another photo showed the entire group of 10 celebrating their birthday with Cartwright.
“Best weekend ever!” Cartwright commented on the photos.
Some fans posted comments to ask where fellow VPR Lala Kent was. Kent has remained close to Cartwright following her exit from Vanderpump Rules in 2020, but she didn’t appear in any photos from the weekend’s birthday trip.
Another notably missing guest from the party weekend was Cartwright’s husband Jax Taylor. The reality TV couple married in 2019 and share a 1-year-old son, Cruz.
Taylor explained his absence from the celebrations on twitterShe wrote: “Wife just left for Vegas for her birthday weekend with the girls. Cruz and I are about to throw a party at the house, mommies gone, endless snacks, cartoons and playtime!”
Taylor too tweeted an update admitting he had a “perfect Saturday” out of town with his wife. “Sleeping baby, football, hockey, yummy meat, woman in Vegas, perfect Saturday,” he wrote.
While the girls’ trip is a good reason why Taylor didn’t join his wife in Las Vegas, it hasn’t helped dispel rumors that the couple’s relationship is in jeopardy. According to The Sun, Taylor did not accompany Cartwright and her son on a trip to Kentucky to see her family in late 2022. But the former SUR bartender later took to social media to slam back the rumors that the two are splitting up.
“We would never get divorced, we don’t believe in that. I’m not sure people are saying that,” Taylor commented on Twitter in December 2022.
