Lisa Vanderpump has always had a soft spot for Scheana Shay; not only is she her employee and daughter’s friend, but she’s become like family to Lisa. Some say that Lisa is over-involved in her employees’ love lives, and when Mike Shay’s addiction was exposed, LVP was very vocal and expressed disappointment in how everything was handled. For the record
We told you yesterday that the identity of Scheana’s boyfriend has finally been confirmed as actor Robert Valletta, and while LVP kept his name a secret, she did have some sound advice to the pair!
First off she called out the haters who have a problem with Scheana dating so soon after announcing her split. “She is dating somebody else. No, I haven’t met him but I’m sure she’ll be criticized for dating someone so quickly after a marriage,” Lisa admitted to The Daily Dish. Adding, “But why not? Life is short and I think if she has the opportunity to have fun with somebody, screw what everybody else says.”
She continued, “Well I think [the divorce] was largely part of the blame lays with Shay. I don’t think you can enter into marriage without being completely honest with somebody about your personal stance, especially regarding sobriety. And I think he was guilty by omission and I think that was incredibly unfair for him to put her in that position to have to deal with that,” she explained.
Clarifying, “And I’m not saying she wouldn’t have married him, but I think she should have known before she committed to the relationship. Now I think she’s young, she’ll bounce back from it. But I know for a fact that he was her everything. And the reason we love Shay was because he was very supportive of her. And I think it’s sad, but I hope she finds somebody that will join in an honest relationship,” Lisa wrapped.
I am with Lisa, I think it’s extremely important for both parties to be completely honest in a relationship. That being said, it’s 2017 and it’s every woman for themselves; I don’t understand how she was living with Mike and didn’t know he was a drug addict. I think she may have (subconsciously) turned a blind-eye, because she was so thrilled with the idea of being married.
Wishing the best of luck to Scheana and Rob, only time will tell if this is a rebound or the real deal!
