Why Did Laura-Leigh Leave ‘Vanderpump Rules’?
When Laura-Leigh turned in her sexy black dress to boss Lisa Vanderpump during the first season, she revealed that she had accepted a role in a movie also starring Jennifer Aniston. That movie turned out to be hit 2013 comedy We’re the Millers, which also featured Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, and Ed Helms. How major is that!? She also appeared in 15 episodes of Lifetime’s The Client List as Nikki Shannon, in addition to acting in crime thriller Under the Silver Lake, which featured Riley Keough, Andrew Garfield and Topher Grace.
Prior to her time on Vanderpump Rules, Laura-Leigh made an appearance on a season 2 Gossip Girl episode in 2008.
Who Did Laura-Leigh Date on ‘Vanderpump Rules’?
Laura-Leigh made waves by hooking up with Jax in the bathroom at their place of work, much to Lisa’s dismay, and then Jax dumped her after he accompanied her to one of her twelve-step meetings. The brunette beauty made no secret of her troubled past on the show — which included a period of crystal meth use. “I started drinking when I was twelve and then got into meth really heavily,” she shared at the meeting.
“I was robbing my family’s houses, selling all of our stuff to pawn shops. It was really, really bad. I do everything as hard as I can do it, as fast as I can do it, and yet I’m still convinced that I can have a glass of wine.” Her then-bartender boyfriend was “shocked” by the information, as he admitted, “I knew some of the things she’s done, but I was in shock. I didn’t realize it was to that extent.” Jax, who is now married to Brittany Cartwright, blamed their split on the fact that he recently ended his relationship with Stassi, and after a few more episodes, Laura-Leigh was off of the Bravo reality series, and pursuing her growing acting career.
