In a confessional from The Valley, Cartwright explained that Cruz had been having some problems with his speech, saying that she felt he had recently “regressed”:

He stopped talking altogether and now we are going to put him in speech therapy just to make sure that he has all the help that he needs. (…) It can make you really, really sad sometimes because you just want your kid to be so perfect and whenever things go a little bit different than you planned it can be a lot of pressure for a mom. I don’t ever want to see him struggle with anything.

Jax Taylor anti-vax comments

In a dangerous turn of events, Jax Taylor is making comments on what he feels caused his son to “regress.” The bold “anti-vax” comments come from Taylor as he questions whether or not childhood vaccines are to blame for Cruz’s speech delay.

Fans were quick to react, pointing out that the problematic comments come during Autism Acceptance month (April.)

Those in support of vaccines understand Autism as having a genetic cause, speculating that Jax from Vanderpump Rules may be feeling guilty due to his advanced paternal age (44.)
