Of course I don’t want the current Vanderpump Rules season to end, but at the same time, I cannot wait until the cast gets together for the reunion episodes. One reason is that it seems like almost every woman in this cast has issues with Scheana Marie and I want to see it all play out while they’re all spray tanned and glammed up.
Recently, both Scheana and her ex Robert Valletta blamed the Vanderpump Rules cast for their breakup, so it seems like the bad blood goes both ways. And I want to know why. I want to know every single thing that went down this season and I want to know now. Unfortunately, I have no insider information, but a recent interview with Scheana does make it clear where she stands with most of the other cast members. Well, it is at least clear where she stands with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney– i.e. not on good terms.
Thankfully she had Ariana Madixon hand for support. The two of them discussed Jax’s cheating (obviously), the allegations that Tom Schwartzmade out with someone that wasn’t his wife Katie Maloney, and get ready for this: Ariana’s friendship with Kristen Doute. It is possible for every person on this show to get along (no matter what issues they have or what mean things they’ve done to each other) and it absolutely amazes me.
Rob even called in to the Watch What Happens Live After Show when Scheana was one of Andy Cohen’s guests to make it clear that there’s no hard feelings associated with the split. He also threw some major shade at Scheana’s frienemies.
At best, it can be said that Scheana Marie lacks self-awareness. Scheana’s frienemy Stassi Schroeder described her as narcissistic during the last Vanderpump Rules episode. Then there’s Scheana herself who adamantly denies her betrayal and dismisses her comments as jokes that just didn’t land.
The last Vanderpump Rules episode centered around everyone’s (alleged) adultery. Jax Taylor admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and this has been the main story line all season. Tom Schwartzput himself on a break from taking shots after he blacked out and made out with a woman who isn’t his wife. And just for good measure, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute claimed that Scheana’s new man Robert Vallettakissed someone else.
When Vanderpump Rules first started it was essentially the “Stassi Schroeder & Jax Taylor Show.” That first season was nothing short of iconic. Now, the show is more of an ensemble, so it’s easy to forget that Stassi and Jax used to date when there are 993,343 other cast members and they almost never have any scenes together. At the same time, their old relationship put the show on the map, so it will always be ingrained in my mind. It just feels like it happened a whole lifetime ago.
Now Stassi is good friends with Jax’s current girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, which sounds so weird, but everyone loves Brittany, so that isn’t at all surprising. So it will be very interesting to get Stassi’s take on Jax’s decision to cheat on Brittany with Vanderpump Rulers hanger-on Faith Stowers. She is Jax’s ex, Brittany’s friend, and now after all this time, she’s actually Jax’s friend as well. Yes, you read that correctly: Jax and Stassi are getting along.
You know what they say “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Scheana Marie is not married to Mike Shay any more, but she still odds with Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Kristen Doute– just like the good old days. Well, maybe Scheana wouldn’t throw the word “good” in there, but it was definitely an iconic era in reality television.
Once again, Scheana Marie is on the outs with Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, and Katie Maloneyon Vanderpump Rules. The cycle really never ends: Scheana wants to be friends with the trio and when she’s friends with them, she can’t take it, and then they start feuding- but will they become friends again? Only time will tell, but based on past history, it is likely. No matter how ugly things get within this cast, they all manage to find forgiveness somehow.
Aside from power tripping and uninviting Katie and Stassi from events, Scheana’s other focus this season is her relationship with Robert Valletta. So of course she made some decor changes to her apartment that she shared with her ex husband Mike Shay. Yes, that includes those notoriously large wedding photos that were plastered on the walls.
