When JT joined the hit Bravo show, his costars were feuding over a massive love square between exes Shep Rose and Taylor Ann Green and Austen Kroll and Olivia Flowers. After having a front-row seat to the toxic exes’’ blowouts, JT reflected on his lack of a love life after becoming a divorcee.
“I have a good life. I should be happy. But my whole life was building a career, building a business, and doing an event space, and I can’t do this much longer, if that makes sense. As you know, I’m about to turn 38 and I don’t have a wife or a girlfriend,” he said during a season 9 confessional clip. “Granted, I did have a first at-bat if you will. Just, I botched that one, you know?”

Though their romantic relationship didn’t work out, JT’s ex won over the hearts of his family. “She was gorgeous and lovely as a human, and you are too, but you guys were just children,” JT’s mother said during an oncamera phone conversation.
“I often wonder if I had met her at 30, would it have been different? Because I would’ve been more mature,” he replied, leading his mom to say, “Absolutely. You know why? Because to be married, you have to have all those other skills that oftentimes 22-year-old people don’t have.”
