Even though she has been on Vanderpump Rules since Season 1, Scheana Marie has always been an outsider among the cast members. Scheana is either trying to gain the friendship and approval of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney or talking shit about them with nothing in between.
It seemed like Scheana finally found her own close friends in Ariana Madix and Lala Kent, but now that the two of them are on better terms with the Witches of WeHo- aka Stassi, Kristen, and Katie- how does Scheana feel about that? Scheana and Ariana are still cool, but that is not the case for Scheana and Lala. Not only that, but Scheana credits herself for getting Lala back on the show after she walked away from it during Season 5.
During an episode of the Make Speidi Famous Again podcast, Scheana said that Lala is back on Vanderpump Rules “Thanks to me.” Scheana teased, “You guys have to watch the reunion to see my opinion on Lala currently.” Clearly her opinion is not at all positive, but I am curious to see the specifics whenever the Season 6 reunion episodes air.
When asked if she is currently friends with Lala, Scheana answered, “We were and I would like to say we still are, but things with her and I right now are…. interesting. Watch the reunion, we’ll see where we stand after that.” Obviously not in a great place since Scheana had Lala’s name in her mouth for a majority of this interview.
Scheana shared, “Her and I were genuinely, legitimately good friends. We live across the street from each other. We go to the gym together. We get lunch. We do all these things together all the time. Or at least we did. Going into this season, they weren’t giving her what she wanted and I was literally begging production and everyone. I was like ‘We need her.’ Her and I were such good friends. Were so close. ”
Scheana explained the tension with Lala: “Going into a new season, you need the people you’re close with. She was already on the show. It was something that started out where I genuinely wanted my friend to be a part of the show again to her feeling like I was using her to be my mouth piece because I was too chicken shit to say the things I wanted to say on my own. Which wasn’t the case because I do have a big mouth. I stand up for myself. I say what I want to say. I don’t need someone else to do that for me. For her to think that’s the only reason I brought her- well, not ‘brought her,’ but begged for her to come back- onto the show was just really frustrating. And her and I are in a weird place right now.”
Scheana stated, “I think Lala is under the spell of the Witches of WeHo.” Scheana later said, “I think she’s a girl – who just like me a couple seasons ago…. when the ‘cool girls’ are accepting you, it’s like ‘Oh my god. They like me. They want to be my friend.’”
She added, “I fell under that spell a couple seasons ago. I woke up and realized Ariana has always been one of my best friends. She has always had my back. She’s never done anything wrong to me, but the fact that I kind of turned on her because I was going with what Kristen, Katie, and Stassi felt and wanted, I just literally conformed and was like their puppet.” Scheana concluded that Lala “just conformed.” Or maybe she just doesn’t want to hear about Rob Valletta successfully hanging up a TV over and over again?
Scheana compared her breakup with Rob to her divorce from Mike Shay: “After everything my ex-husband and I went through on the show, we didn’t divorce because of the show. It was because of so many other things happening. For Rob to just kind of throw in the towel so soon because there was a rumor that he kissed someone was quite disappointing.” Scheana even admitted, “Watching it back is mortifying.” Mortifying, yet entertaining.
Scheana even declared, “At 32 years old, this was the first heart break I experienced. This was harder than the divorce was. Honestly.” Really? I guess it is tough to hang a television on your own.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK LALA IS UNDER THE WITCHES OF WEHO’S SPELL? IF YOU WERE LALA, WOULD YOU RATHER BE FRIENDS WITH STASSI, KRISTEN, & KATIE OR SCHEANA? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT SCHEANA SAYING HER BREAKUP WITH ROB WAS WORSE THAN HER DIVORCE FROM SHAY?
