Last night’s Vanderpump Rules reunion, part one, dedicated a fair amount of time to rehashing Scheana Marie and Mike Shay‘s troubled first year of marriage. While Shay battled a Vicodin addiction off camera, Scheana turned to her
paid castmates friends for support. How Scheana spoke about sobriety (Don’t be a sober bore!) and her apparent non-support for Shay’s sober aspirations (Here, have a vodka-soaked tampon!) got her into a lot of hot water with the viewing public.
Now Scheana is backtracking – Scheana Style! Which means she feels sort of bad…but not really. (Wait – is it all Stassi Schroeder‘s fault!? Yeah, let’s blame her!) She reflects, “I don’t like to have regrets. I live and learn and I learned a lot this year watching the show back and seeing the negative feedback. I will say that I’m thankful for how hard this past year was because it humbled me and made me look at things from an outside perspective. A lot of things I said were taken out of context and that was extremely frustrating. I never meant to come off as unsupportive or uneducated.”

Scheana claims that Shay was not willing to give up drinking during filming, so she dealt with the situation the best she could at the time. She asserts in her blog, “I’m not an expert at this. I was just trying to be a wife who supported her husband’s decisions and tried to better the outcome.”
Claiming that Shay has been totally sober for three months, Scheana gushes, “We’ve been the happiest we’ve ever been. Everything about our relationship is just sexier and better than ever!”
So, did Jax Taylor and Lala Kent owe Scheana and Shay and apology for trash-talking both their marriage and Scheana’s
tragic misunderstanding of addiction? Scheana says, “Absolutely. It was owed. Jax apologized the second the episode aired and he knew how upset we were. Jax and I have years of a friendship and I was really hurt by him. Lala apologized because she was out of line. She spoke publicly about a situation she had ZERO knowledge of. After I let her have it at the After Show I think she knew she owed me an apology.”
Jax may be the professional apologizer of the group because, let’s face it, he needs that skill nice and honed, given his proclivities for poor decisions! But Kristen Doute went on a mini-apology tour of her own this season as well. Although Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix aren’t buying her act, Scheana is!
She believes Kristen’s apology to Ariana, in particular, was genuine. “A year ago I may have felt differently, but since then Kristen and I have gotten closer I definitely see a positive change in her attitude and behavior. Therapy looks good on her!”
Scheana doesn’t believe Tom will ever be at peace with Kristen, though, despite his claims to the contrary on last night’s reunion. “It’s natural. She’s his ex,” admits Scheana.
