Vanderpump Rules Reunion: Scheana Reveals New BF to Mike Shay … SO Awkward
On part three of the Vanderpump Rules reunion recap last night on Bravo, Scheana and Mike Shay’s divorce once again took center stage.
What did we learn this time around, if anything?
Kicking off Vanderpump Rules Season 5 Episode 24, perhaps the most boring reunion show of all time, was a whole lot of rehashing.
We know that’s the entire point, but unless there are some new revelations mixed in, or punches thrown, it’s all a bit of a snoozefest.
That being said, if you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that the divorce of Scheana Marie and husband Mike was a BFD.
At the reunion, she laid eyes on Mike Shay for the first time since telling him she wants a divorce in November, which was super awkward.
Shay has a penchant for cheating, ghosting and using drugs, basically. That’s quite the trifecta for a new wife to put up with, admittedly.
In addition to revealing what caused their split, the reunion saw the on-camera revelation that Scheana is dating Robert Valletta now.
Shay did not know this and was blindsided.
“You follow him on Instagram,” Scheana told Shay about her new actor boyfriend’s identity, in perhaps the most 2017 moment to date.
To put it mildly, the whole thing was harsh.
Even Scheana knows it, too, reaching out to Shay after the taping in hopes of making things right and moving forward with life amicably.
“I had sent him an email after the reunion … I felt I was very harsh in certain parts, I felt a little cold in other parts of it,” Scheana said.
“And then, the way he found out about Rob, I felt I needed to just give a little more of an explanation. I felt like I just owed that to him.”
“We’ve been friends for half our lives.”
At the reunion, Mike was clearly taken aback when he learned Scheana is dating, saying that he isn’t, since he’s “still technically married.”
He also accused her of talking about his drug use on the show, which he felt was very uncool, but Scheana wasn’t walking that back.
“My job is to tell my story and put my life out there,” she responded. “I’m sorry I’m not going to keep my mouth shut about that anymore.”
“We’re not together anymore,” she said of her former husband, adding that “me opening up about this has helped so many women, too.”
All in all, it was an emotional experience.
That was true for Shay, who despite his many flaws, has gone through a lot and is struggling to get to a better place mentally and physically.
It was also the case for Scheana, who was wracked with anxiety to the point where she could not stop fidgeting with her hair and makeup.
Nevertheless, she said she has found herself in a better place following the demise of her two-year marriage, heartbreaking as it was.
“I have my closure,” she told said.
“I’ve clearly moved on. I’m in a very good place, and I feel like I’ve never been happier,” Scheana added … do you believeher?
