Katie Maloney is laughing off Jax Taylor’s claims that he has “tea” about the drama that went down at the “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10 reunion taping.

A Bravo fan reposted Taylor’s take on the “brawls” that nearly broke out between two cast members and captioned it, “Jax keeps spilling.. honestly.. I called this and if it ends up being true, I would not be surprised.”

Maloney, 36, then wrote in the comments section of the Instagram post Tuesday, “Lol.”

Taylor, 43, told “Extra” at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards Monday that he spoke with one of the men allegedly involved in the fight after the reunion wrapped filming last week.

“I talked to him right after it happened. … I checked in with everybody,” he said.

Taylor did not reveal which two guys were involved, but Tom Sandoval, who had an affair with Raquel Leviss, his former pal James Kennedy, who was engaged to Leviss, and Sandoval’s BFF, Tom Schwartz, are all possible culprits, as they are the three main male cast members on the show.

An insider previously revealed to TMZ that neither Sandoval, 40, Leviss, 28, nor Ariana Madix, Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend, were the “instigators” of the brawl.

“It was like a nuclear bomb went off in the studio,” the source said.

Although it is unclear whether Sandoval or Leviss were involved in the fight in any capacity, a separate insider previously told Page Six that the duo did get catch a lot of heat.

“The anger towards them is to be expected,” the source told us in the wake of Scandoval.

Meanwhile, Taylor, who has not been on the Bravo reality series since Season 8, has sounded off in multiple press interviews about the affair between Sandoval and Leviss.

He previously claimed that the TomTom co-owner preyed on the former pageant queen because she can be “controlled” and “easily influenced.”

“I think he likes to be able to tell her what to do. I think she’s very codependent, and I think he preys on that,” the “When Reality Hits” podcast host added.

Taylor also claimed he knew exactly when Schwartz, 40, found out about the affair.

“I talk to Schwartz every day, so I know for a fact, a 100 percent fact, on my child, he told me he knew,” the father of one said on the March 22 episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“He goes, ‘I knew for a while,’ kind of left it at that, but then he said, ‘I tried to tell him to come forward with it.’”

A source close to Sandoval recently told Page Six that the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman and Taylor have not discussed their personal lives and also haven’t seen each other in at least a year.

Taylor previously recognized on “WWHL” that as a former cheater himself, he doesn’t have much room to talk.

“I don’t really have a leg to stand on in this topic. I want to make that very clear,” he said before telling Andy Cohen, “I’ll answer your questions, but I want to make sure I say that.”

Cohen, 54, responded at the time, “You don’t want to come off like you’re dancing on someone’s [grave].”

“Right, it’s an awful thing what happened,” Taylor added.

Madix, 37, dumped Sandoval in early March after she discovered a sexually explicit video sent from Leviss to her boyfriend of nearly 10 years.

Their split and Sandoval’s affair will continue to play out on “Vanderpump Rules,” which airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
