E! News reports that Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay, who split from husband Mike Shay in November, is dating actor Robert Valletta. A source reveals that Scheana and Robert have been friends for a decade and "supported each other through the years," but it wasn't until about a month and a half ago that things took a romantic turn.
Apparently it all started over the holidays, when Valletta—whose older sister is model-actress Amber Valletta—reached out the Bravo reality TV fixture. Scheana and Robert rang in New Year's Eve together, and as the insider reveals that she may get involved in a new television project her beau is working on.
"Scheana wasn't looking for anything; she just got out of a marriage. But things happened and this feels right," shares the insider, adding, "They're seeing where it goes, but are really enjoying each other's company."
And while the lovebirds have yet to take their romance public, Robert did travel with Scheana to New York City last week to support her guest appearance on Watch What Happens Live, where she confirmed to host Andy Cohen there was a new special someone in her life.
Valletta has even received the stamp of approval from Shay's loved ones. "Her friends and family really like him! People think this could lead somewhere. She's been through a lot. Everyone's happy for her," said the source.
