Were they shocked about Scheana and Shay’s split? Tom says it came out of nowhere and Katie says “Of course. We all thought they would be together forever.” Tom adds, “you never know what’s going on behind closed doors. They seemed happy from outward appearances.”
I feel naive saying this, but I was surprised when I heard about Scheana Marie Shay and Mike Shay filing for divorce. Yes, I remember the couple dealing with Shay’s addiction last season on Vanderpump Rules, but I figured they would try to work through it – at least for a little bit longer than this.
There have been quite a few rumors about the Shays recently. It was reported that Shay ran away and took Scheana’s money, but Shay adamantly denied that story and proclaimed his love for his wife in a strongly worded Instagram post. It seemed like it was all good, but clearly that was not the case. Now I’m wondering what we will get to see on the current Vanderpump Rules season.
Even though their origin as a couple was a little controversial at the time, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are arguably the most functional romantic pairing on Vanderpump Rules. They don’t bicker as much as the others and they always have each other’s backs, which is a rare feat in this clique. Naturally, people are wondering when the SUR employees are going to tie the knot, but Ariana has no interest in marriage or kids even though Tom does.
As of now, it doesn’t seem like the duo’s difference in opinion is causing a wedge in their relationship, so hopefully they will be able to come to a decision they both agree with. Ariana doesn’t explain why she’s not down to be a wife and mother, but she’s very emphatic about how averse she is to both concepts.
I used to root for Katie Maloney to come out of Stassi Schroeder‘s shadow on Vanderpump Rules, but now that she has, she’s getting the mean girl edit as the new leader of the clique. Katie, Stassi, and Kristen Doute do not like LaLa Kent and they never have. So obviously they want to ostracize her to the point where it wouldn’t make sense for her to be in the cast and they can get LaLa off of (what they perceive to be) their show. And you know that squad was not going to tolerate Scheana Marie Shay being friendly with LaLa.
I can see why they wouldn’t want their friend to be friends with a woman that they have declared to be an enemy – but come on, LaLa is a SUR hostess and Scheana is a waitress, so they have to communicate every single time they’re at the restaurant. Why wouldn’t they just try to be pleasant when they interact? It doesn’t mean they have to be best friends, or even be friends at all, but having a civil rapport sounds better than being miserable every single shift. But maybe I’m just being too logical about this since Scheana seems to disagree.
True to form, Lala doesn’t hold back and isn’t trying to win friends. Carry on then…
First Jenny wonders why the girls seem to have it out for Lala. She thinks they’re jealous because Lala is so pretty, and has a more successful career (she just wrapped filming on a movie with John Cusak and Nicholas Cage.)
High school… these problems matter! These people are in high school like the original cast of 90210 were. Meaning the “kids” on Vanderpump Rules are 30 going on 13, and it’s ridiculous.
Last night, Katie Maloney, Bridezilla of West Hollywood (she may actually just be straight up Godzilla at this point because she does seem to think she’s God), demanded Scheana Marie never, ever have an opinion contrary to Katie’s, like, ever again, and if Scheana does like ever, ever, ever deign to think for herself, she will be dumped like room temperature white wine.
Katie is the one who needs to be bumped – by Tom 2 and everyone else. She and Stassi Schroeder deserve each other.
