The Vanderpump Rules season 5 reunion got extremely tense when Mike Shay joined the group, and we all watched as he and ex Scheana Marie came face to face for the first time since they split.
Scheana held her ground and got very heated towards Mike, and he was just as intense in return. It was a different side of Scheana that don’t often see, and recently she revealed to E! News that she wasn’t happy with the way she acted towards Mike, so she sent him an email following the Vanderpump Rules reunion!
Because of her, “harsh” delivery, Scheana felt the need to clarify her tone and let him know where it was coming from. “I had sent him an email after the reunion because…I felt I was very harsh in certain parts of it, I felt a little cold in other parts of it, ” Scheana admitted.
Elaborating, “And then, the way he found out about Rob, I felt I needed to just give a little more of an explanation. I felt like I just owed that to him because we’ve been friends for half our lives.”
Mike never responded to the email, but a mutual friend confirmed that he read it, and Scheana has officially closed that chapter. Despite Mike’s silence, she revealed, “That was enough for me. I’ve said my piece.”
It was especially awkward when Scheana told Mike about her new boyfriend Rob Valletta, and he fired back that he wasn’t dating yet because they’re, “technically still married;“ he finally found his voice and it was a pleasant change to finally hear Mike stand up for himself. He went on to accuse Scheana of, “throwing him under the bus” when she exposed his drug use on the show, and it he definitely had a point; wherever he goes, everyone knows about the dark time in his life!
However, Scheana has no regrets for outing Mike’s addiction, and in her opinion she was just, “doing her job.”
“My job is to tell my story and put my life out there…I’m sorry I’m not going to keep my mouth shut about that anymore, we’re not together anymore. Me opening up about this has helped so many women, too,” Scheana explained.
The whole situation was uncomfortable, but at least Scheana has found closure, and hopefully Mike has done the same.
“I have my closure. I’ve clearly moved on. I’m in a very good place, and I feel like I’ve never been happier,” Scheana wrapped.
I feel bad for Mike; he made a lot of mistakes, but Scheana is who signed up for this in the first place, and he now has a bad reputation. It’s evident that Scheana wants the world to know how strong her relationship with is with Rob, although I feel like she’s already claimed that she’s, “never been happier” several times in the past. Hopefully Mike can find a solid relationship in the near future, but I don’t think we’ll see or hear much more from him; his time in the spotlight is done!
