Tonight’s Watch What Happens Live guests were Vanderpump Rules stars Scheana Marie and Stassi Schroeder. Scheana was a good sport and answered a lot of questions about her split with Mike Shay and her dating status – and those rumors of dating Mike Comrie. Stassi defended herself, denying that she dictates who her friends can hang with.
When called a buzzkill on the Montauk trip, Scheana says “Seeing it now all edited together, definitely. At the time I thought it was just a no here and a no there, but yeah, sorry.” Stassi says, “it was a no everywhere.” Scheana apologizes.
On Summer House‘s Carl and Kyle, Stassi says “both are very handsome. But Carl insulted me by saying he didn’t like blondes and thought I was weird for being on a dating app.” On the disastrous encounter with Kyle, “Listen, I took my Montauk wardrobe very seriously and the second he insulted my swimsuit, it was like ‘God damn, it’s done now.’ ”
Andy asks if they’ve been involved in a bit of a gang up on Lala Kent. Stassi says, “absolutely not. If you know what she was saying in between seasons about Katie, you would be doing exactly what I’m doing.”
Andy asks Scheana a few questions about her split with Shay. On the rumors that Shay went missing for six days: “He did. We didn’t speak for over a week when I was here for the VanderCrawl. He went to the studio one night and didn’t come back for over a week.”
What brought her to the decision to divorce? “You will see all of this addressed toward the end of the season. So, I want people to tune in and see what I have to say then. But it just seemed to be the best decision. A separation seemed like we’d be delaying the inevitable.”
Andy asks if she thinks if Shay‘s issues hadn’t been highlighted on the show that they might still be together? “No. That had nothing to do with it.” She adds, “We haven’t lived together since October and as of right now we are not on speaking terms.”
She says she plans to burn the huge wedding photos, but then says she’s kidding and that they’re in storage. She says the divorce won’t be final for several months.
Andy asks about the guy in Scheana‘s bed on Snapchat. “I’ve been doing a lot of fun Snapchats to keep people guessing.”
Scheana says there’s no truth to the rumor that she’s dating Hilary Duff’s ex, Mike Comrie. Andy tries to get her to admit she’s seeing SOMEONE but she plays coy and never directly answers.
A viewer Tweeted, imploring Stassi to just finally admit that she dictates who her friends are allowed to be friends with. “I don’t feel like I do that.” She asks Scheana if she thinks she dictates who she can be friends with. Scheana says, “Not dictate, but I know if I really wanted to be friends with Lala, she would be like okay with it.”
Stassi again talks about how mortified she was the next day about her meltdown at Carter’s birthday party. She said she threw herself on the floor and acted as if she had just found out her family had been murdered.
On the Twitter backlash this past week, Stassi says: “It was really hard. I’ve been getting hate for five years. I am used to it. I think there’s something with social media nowadays – it’s bigger and the way that it was season 1, it’s just so much more intense and overwhelming and I cracked.”
A viewer asked if Stassi thinks Katie Maloney (who is in the audience with her mom) is meaner around her. “That is such a cop-out. I hate when people say that. She’s fully capable of making her own decisions, unless I am actually manipulating her and pulling the strings.”
As a former “new girl” to the group, did Scheana feel bad for Lala at all? “No, because it was a totally different situation.”
A caller asks Scheana if it was hypocritical of Katie to get mad at her for having small talk with Lala, but she let Schwartz go on a birthday vacation with her. “I understand where Katie was coming from. Lala said a lot of terrible things about her and her fiance.” Andy says “but her fiance was going on vacation with her.” Scheana says “that’s up to Katie. I’m not in their relationship, so..” Katie speaks up from the audience and says clearly if she’s fine with Tom going on vacay with Lala, she wasn’t trying to dictate Scheana not speaking to her.
Scheana on her friendship status with Ariana Madix, “We’re better than ever. You’ll see this in the next few weeks, us totally rekindling our friendship.”
Andy has Mark from Timber Creek Lodge and Stassi playing a love connection game. Stassi and Mark have nearly identical answers for every question but one and they agree to exchange numbers and meet for a drink while they’re in NYC.
Stassi says Jax Taylor acted way worse when they were dating than he does now with Brittany Cartwright.
One of the poll questions of the night was “Would you date Stassi?” 71% said No. Stassi says she’s NEVER won a WWHL poll and would really like to just once.
The other poll was “Whose side are you on: Lala or Everyone Else?” 62% said Everyone Else.
We should have more photos for you from tonight’s show in the morning.
