Scheana Shay’s Ex-Boyfriend Robert Valletta Says He Felt ‘Somewhat Taken Advantage Of’ On Vanderpump Rules!

Scheana Shay's ex-boyfriend Robert Valletta says he feels that he was "somewhat taken advantage of" on Vanderpump Rules and compares the Bravo reality stars to the "quarterback in high school that never made it to the pros."

"If anybody can IMDb me, they know I've been working in the industry for 15 years," Rob began, shooting down the rumor that he 'used' Scheana for fame.

"I have more credits than anybody on the entire show. I am producing stuff on the show. And the thing is, they're not famous!," he said during a recent interview on The Domenick Nati Show. "The cast members are not famous. They're like the quarterback in high school that never made it to the pros."

"The quarterback in high school was incredibly popular, but they're not famous. When the show's done, people move on to the next reality star or the next show. Fame doesn't last," he explained. "My sister is famous, if I wanted to be famous so bad, don't you think I'd be posting pictures with my sister all the time?"

In regards to Scheana, Rob had more positive things to say - and revealed he'd be open to dating again if the timing was right.

He admitted he hadn't seen any episodes of Vanderpump Rules before Scheana asked him to appear in season six, and was told by a friend about the explosive split between Scheana and ex Shay on the season 5 reunion show.



"By that point, I already told her I would do it," he said.

Rob admits that he regrets holding back during filming and revealed that he didn't like how the show could have affected his reputation.

"The whole time I was filming, I held back," he said. 'I held back everything because the fact of the matter is is that I felt somewhat taken advantage of by doing the show. I felt like I did the show for Scheana, and the first week we started filming, the cast decided they wanted to start a stupid rumor about me supposedly making out with a girl, and I said, "This is why I didn't wanna do the show. You are now questioning who I am as a person. For you, that's fine. But for me -- I have 100 employees.""

"For a guy who doesn't get paid to do a show - I mean, they all get paid a ton of money. The whole thing is very unsafe. You can't control what these people are gonna say."

Rob the explains why he has issues with Scheana's co-star James Kennedy.

"I actually have been very respectful to all of them throughout the whole process, but the only one that still says things about me is James Kennedy," he said. "It's James, you know? If I'm gonna let a little 23-year-old kid who still talks about himself in the third person bother me, then I have some much bigger things in my life that I need to be fixing."
