Scheana Marie divorce

The Moment That Made Scheana Marie File For Divorce From Mike Shay

I have a feeling that the Vanderpump Rules reunion is going to focus a lot of time on the split between Scheana Marie and Mike Shay.

The season basically ended with Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s wedding that took place in August, but they threw in some stuff about the demise of the Shay marriage at the end since it happened in between the wedding and the premiere date for season five. To the viewers, the writing was on the wall since Shay basically left Scheana by herself for the entire season, but Scheana did not recognize that the marriage was really over until one key moment.


In an interview with E! News, Scheana stated the sad but obvious truth, “There were a lot of things from the beginning of our marriage that kind of tainted the whole relationship.”

Aside from Shay’s pill popping and alcohol issues that the fans saw play out on the show, Scheana revealed, “Right before our one-year anniversary, I saw some inappropriate text messages.” I can’t really see why anyone would want to be Shay’s side piece, but apparently someone was interested.

Scheana admitted, “My mom and other people around me had noticed a change in his behavior. I was either oblivious to it or I just didn’t want to believe what I was seeing right in front of my face.”

Scheana added, “All of these things are plain as day and I just didn’t see it.”

So what finally made her see the light? Scheana recalled, “Towards the end of October, he just didn’t come home one day.” We all knew this, but Scheana was also dealing with a death in the family at that time. Scheana continued, “During those two weeks I found out he was buying pills again. That’s when I was like, ‘I’m going to give him one more chance to tell me the truth.'” And obviously he did not do that.

Scheana said, “I looked him in the eyes and he lied to me. That’s when I was like, ‘Now I don’t have another choice. I know I fully cannot trust you ever again.'” And of course, she concluded, “A divorce was the only thing we could do.”
