Andy Cohen Ariana Madix Mike Shay Scheana Marie Vanderpump Rules

Why Does Ariana Madix Want To Remain Friends With Mike Shay?!

Monday night we finally saw the divorce drama go down between Scheana and Mike Shay on the Vanderpump Rules season finale, and Scheana stood her ground as it came out that Mike was allegedly lying; she told him she was done and we watched him leave!

She did have a nice moment with BFF Ariana Madix, and even though they were fighting last season, they proved that they are strong than ever; however that didn’t stop Ariana from admitted that she wants to remain friends with Mike.

She spoke to The Daily Dish and defended, “one of my best guy friends, if not my best guy friend.

Elaborating, “The day that I found out that Scheana and Shay were definitely filing for divorce, I was in New Zealand, and I saw it on the Internet, of all things, and so I texted him just to lend him my support and tell him that I love him and tell him that I care about him. I’m always here.

He didn’t respond right away though, and it was about, “a month or two later” until she heard from if after he had changed his phone number.

So for a while there, we were definitely not in touch. I think in the end, it makes a lot of sense and I understand why, and I definitely don’t fault him for that,” she clarified.

She hasn’t seen him aside of the VPR reunion, and she spilled that things got very heated.

Scheana and Shay at the reunion was very intense. And it was actually really intense, I think, for a lot of us. I mean, it was very intense for me as well,” Ariana confessed.

Adding, “So I think that you will see on the reunion a lot of really tense moments between not just Scheana and Shay, but Shay and himself and Shay and the rest of the group. I mean, I had a lot of questions because I hadn’t talked to him in months. Lisa had questions. Obviously, Andy [Cohen] had questions; it’s his job. But I think that Scheana was very emotionally overwhelmed,” she recalled.

Ariana know things between them will obviously be different because of his split with Scheana, but that doesn’t mean she wants to cut him out entirely.

I would really like to be be able to have a friendship with Shay moving into the future. I understand it’s definitely not gonna be what it was. But I just want him to know always that I love and care and support him and his happiness. And I think that them not being together is probably better for both of them,” she wrapped.

Is it okay for Ariana to stay friends with Mike? Are you surprised he didn’t answer right away? Is it disloyal to Scheana? What do you think she makes of this interview? Will they really remain friends?
