Scheana Shay and her estranged husband Mike Shay are set to reunite in part 3 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
And from the sneak peek alone it might be the most emotional and heated moment of the reunion, if not the entire season.
During a recent chat with The Daily Dish, Scheana revealed that things between her and Mike have gotten much worse since fans saw them end their marriage during the heartbreaking VPR finale.
“We hadn’t spoken for about a month-and-a-half before [the reunion], and it wasn’t an amicable last conversation we had,” Scheana revealed.
In fact, the last conversation the former couple had was over one of Stassi Schroder’s tweets that Scheana quote tweeted and responded to, which did sit well with Mike.
“I just wasn’t in a good place at the time, and I just didn’t care. And I felt like, ‘Well, you hurt me, and now I’m gonna hurt you.’ Sometimes I operate that way, and it’s not a good quality of mine, but I was very hurt,” Scheana said. “So [Shay] saw that and had screenshot it and sent it to me and basically said, ‘Eff you. Don’t ever contact me again.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ I responded and just said, ‘Thank you for hurting me as much as you possibly could. And best of luck to you. I hope you get help. I know everything.’ And I kind of just left it at that.”
However, Scheana didn’t think it would be difficult to see Mike at the reunion, but when the time came to bring him out, she felt totally different.
“And then right when they talked about like, ‘After this break, Mike Shay will be here,’ I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ I had a full-blown panic attack. I was like, I need a shot or I need something. I was just freaking out, and I didn’t think I was going to be so emotional. But it was just everything coming back at once, and it was really difficult,” she said. “And then I see him, and he’s sitting right in front of me, and he looked so different. Like, his shoulders were really buff, and he had his ears pierced, and his hair was different. I was just like, ‘Who are you?'”
Luckily, Scheana had Jax Taylor and James Kennedy to help alleviate her stress with their reunion shenanigans.
“James and Jax were the funniest part of the whole day. Like, every time I would start to have a little bit of an anxiety attack, they would just make me laugh, and then they high-fived, and I’m like, ‘What is going on here?’ And then James was crawling on the floor. It was just so comical,” Scheana explained. “It was the comic relief I needed that day because I knew Shay wasn’t until the end of the day. So all day at lunch and everything, it’s just in the back of my mind. And then that day, I burned my hand at lunch. So then I’m dealing with being in physical pain on top of emotional pain. It was just a very difficult day for me, but the comic relief helped a lot.”
While her reunion with Shay was uncomfortable, Scheana says it will help her move on.“It was weird, but I think that day did bring some closure to me, at least,” she said.
Part three of the reunion is going to get ugly because neither Scheana nor Mike will be holding back. I’ve always said there is a lot about their relationship that we don’t know about. I hope both of them find happiness because they BOTH deserve it.
