DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Tom,” and I just spent the weekend with his older brother, “George.”

Jeanne Phillips 

George spent most of the weekend mocking and mimicking me, and he even made fun of my chronic health condition.

Tom kept telling me not to be so sensitive and to ignore George’s “sense of humor.

Afterward, I told Tom I wouldn’t remain silent in the future, and I wished he had said something like, “That’s enough, George,” on my behalf.

Tom insists it isn’t his place. He thinks I should accept George as he is “since we all have our faults.”

While I want to maintain my relationship with Tom, I need to limit my exposure to George, whose behavior I regard as abusive. Does this seem reasonable?

TIRED OF THE TEASING

DEAR TIRED: Reasonable, yes. Whether it is possible may be questionable.

I agree that George’s behavior was abusive. It’s a shame Tom was afraid to stand up to his older brother, but because he wouldn’t intervene, you would have been within your rights to stand up for yourself, tell him his ridicule wasn’t funny and leave.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been together 39 years, and we generally get along very well. We’ve always had dogs and cats, and we currently have two of each.

While my wife loves all animals, I’m a dog person. I don’t dislike cats, but I don’t really care for them. The cats and I tend to ignore each other.

We have one who’s 20 years old. While he doesn’t appear to be in any pain, I suspect he has dementia. He has poor balance. He stumbles into walls and cabinets and has fallen down the stairs a number of times.

Recently, he has been peeing in my den and garage. That, I can’t ignore.

I think it’s time to put the cat down. My wife is calling me cold and heartless.

I think when I’ve lost my mind enough to pee in my den or garage, I hope someone will be compassionate enough to help me go. I’m starting to hate that cat.

FAVORS DOGS IN EL PASO

DEAR FAVORS DOGS: That poor animal should be examined by a veterinarian to determine why he is stumbling and falling, and whether the problem can be remedied. (The elderly dog of a friend of mine kept running into things and ultimately had successful cataract surgery.)

As to the cat’s inappropriate choice of a place to relieve himself, the problem may be as simple as a curable bladder infection — unless he has picked up on the fact that you would like to see him dead and is doing it to get back at you.

DEAR ABBY: I am 48 and married to a widower in his early 60s. Not long ago we moved into a 55-plus community.

The problem is, every time we meet someone, they ask my husband why he robbed the cradle. I’m sick of hearing it. My husband is a warm, caring, loving man, who just laughs and says, “Yep!”

How can I rebut those comments when they come, because my husband doesn’t seem to be able? He wants everyone to like him, so he never makes waves.

NOT FROM THE CRADLE

DEAR NOT FROM THE CRADLE: The comments aren’t meant as an attack on your marriage. The next time someone says it, pipe up and say, “We were both old enough to know what we wanted!”

WATCH: Jax Taylor Shades Tom Sandoval in Unhinged Cameo

Getty Images Jax Taylor's Cameo goes viral.

Jax Taylor of “Vanderpump Rules” fame has teamed up with Cameo to send fans messages on special occasions — or for no occasion at all — for a price.

Someone who received a Cameo from Jax on her birthday decided to share the video on Reddit, and it has since gone viral. In the video, which the original poster called “unhinged,” Jax wishes a woman named Mya a happy 26th birthday. Straight away, he admits that he “smoked a fat joint” before filming.

“I apologize. Well, I don’t really apologize. I have a kid, I’m stressed out. Tired all the time. And I want to smoke a joint. I’m in my backyard. Chillin. That’s what life’s about,” Jax said into the camera.

Here’s what you need to know:

Jax Suggested That the Drama on ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Is Just for TV & Threw Shade at Tom Sandoval

https://heavy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/Cameo-by-Jax-Taylor-via-cameo.mp4

In Jax’s 4.5 minute Cameo, he stresses that reality television isn’t real life — and suggested that the drama on “Vanderpump Rules” isn’t actually real — which is something that he has expressed in the past.

Jax took a moment to thank Mya for being a fan of the show. “It’s been a lot of fun. A lot of ups, a lot of downs. I’m sure there were times you wanted to throw things at the TV at me, and…say Jax you’re an idiot, Jax you’re a douchebag,” he continued.

“Keep in mind you are watching a reality TV show. We do what we gotta do to keep the show interesting, so we get paid. That’s our job. It’s not [to] sit around and braid each other’s hair. It’s not crazy. I don’t think all of us would still all be friends if we acted the way we actually do on TV. I mean, that would be kinda weird. So, keep that in mind when you’re watching reruns. Don’t be too mean to me. I’m doing my job, and I do it f****** well,” Jax added.

Jax then doubles down on his comments, making sure that he gets his point across. “We are not actors,” he said, before taking a shot at his former BFF Tom Sandoval. “Even though Tom Sandoval thinks he’s an actor,” he said.

Jax Teased That He & Brittany Cartwright ‘Will Be Back on TV Again Soon’ View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Jax (@mrjaxtaylor)

Jax acknowledged that he and his wife, Brittany Cartwright, are no longer on “Vanderpump Rules,” saying that they made the decision to leave the show. His reason? He’s 42-years-old, and didn’t want to have “fake” interactions with people half his age.

However, Jax did confirm that he and Brittany will be back on television, though it’s unclear if they already have something in the works.

“We will be back on TV again soon. My wife and I are just trying to figure out what we’re going to do. Have a little fun… Maybe get the old gang back together and figure out a new project because we need to get back on TV,” Jax said. “We miss you guys, and we want to let you guys know what’s going on in our lives. So, we’ll be back,” he added.
