The Vanderpump Rules season 5 reunion has been insane, but the most startling revelation came during part 3 of the reunion when Scheana Marie’s estranged husband Mike Shay made his grand appearance.
Scheana and Mike tried their best to explain the downward spiral of their two-year marriage and placed much of the blame on each other without either taking any accountability.
However, the most shocking moment came when Scheana revealed that she exposed Mike’s drug problem on Vanderpump Rules out of spite!
At the reunion, Scheana explained that she was hurt and went to Lisa Vanderpump on camera about Mike’s pill addiction out of spite despite the fact that he had been clean for six months at that time.
Shay says that he and Scheana were privately dealing with his addiction and that when Scheana went public with his issues for Vanderpump Rules, he was forced to tell his friends and parents.
Adding, that because of it now everywhere he goes he’s labeled a “drugie.”
See the reunion clip here:
Scheana also discussed this topic with The Daily Dish telling them she threw Mike under the bus and went public with his addiction issues because she wasn’t ready to publicly deal with the other issues in their relationship like Shay texting another girl.
“At the time, I couldn’t emotionally deal with that on camera. So I made the decision to talk about his addiction more than what was going on,” Scheana explained. “And he resented me for it, and I don’t think he ever fully forgave me for throwing him under the bus. But he hurt me so bad that I just emotionally couldn’t deal with when this airs having every Brandi [Glanville] fan and follower in the world be like, ‘Karma. That’s what you get,’ because I just wasn’t in a good place in my life to deal with that at the time.”
I think this relationship was doomed from the start. Apparently, these two cannot openly communicate with each other at all. No wonder this marriage couldn’t work when Shay is texting another girl while married and Scheana is vindictively revealing Shays’ addiction to the world. I think BOTH Scheana and Mike are to blame for this marriage ending and for all of the blame to be put on Mike is uncalled for. This whole this is sad, and hopefully, these two can move on to happier and healthier relationships.
