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.


Everyone who watches the show knows Lisa Vanderpump has always had a soft spot for Scheana, so I’m sure Lisa is very much in the loop when it comes to Scheana‘s split with Shay. And “knowing” Lisa (like I think I do in my head after watching both of her shows), she definitely has an opinion about their relationship.

Lisa opened up about Scheana’s split in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Lisa teased, “You’re going to see some of [what went wrong] on the end of the season.” The SUR owner also commented on the drama that went down last season, “I was a little upset with the fact they entered into this marriage without [Scheana] being aware of what she was taking on.”

Yeah, I have no idea how that happened either. Was Shay just really good at hiding things? I find it so strange that someone with an addiction problem was able to keep that from is wife and reality TV camera crew. Or was Scheana just way too caught up in the fantasy wedding and being married?

Either way, the whole situation is very sad and I’m feeling for them both. So does Lisa. “I’m very protective of Scheana, and with what went down last year – you know, what she talked about [with Mike’s] addiction – I felt really quite incensed because I have a lot of sympathy for people with addiction.”

I can’t help wondering how this is going to be featured on the show this season. I’m definitely curious to see which footage will make the cut.

Lisa didn’t say too much about the split, but she did comment, “Scheana’s a great girl, she really is, and to see this fairytale come to an end, it was quite disheartening, really.” I know that not everyone is a fan of Scheana, but I feel like most people would have at least a teeny bit of sympathy for anyone whose marriage is falling apart in such a public way.
