Scheana Shay Admits She ‘Lost’ Herself During Mike Shay Divorce And Robert Valletta Relationship!

Scheana Shay teases viewers what they can expect from her in the upcoming seventh season of Vanderpump Rules and admits she has grown since her divorce from Mike Shay and her relationship with Robert Valletta. “Just seeing where I was last year and how I obsessed I was with my relationship and all of that and coming into this year, I feel like I’m much more self-aware, self-deprecating, and I feel like I’m me again for the first time in a while. … I kind of lost myself for a couple years and got caught up in the things that weren’t important,” she told Us Weekly.

Shay claims that her move to Las Vegas “really put things back in perceptive” for her. After months of starring in Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man in Sin City, she returned to Los Angeles feeling like her old self again.

“Now it’s time to mend what friendships I can and if people are willing to give me another chance, great, if not, I understood, but I was certainly going to try my hardest to get through that old Scheana was back,” she explains. “I think season 4, it got really hard just dealing with [husband Mike] Shay’s addiction and martial problems and season 5, pretending like everything was fine. I felt like I wasn’t really being my true self, I was putting on this facade of ‘everything’s sunshine and rainbows and no, no, no, I’m really happy.’”

After her divorce from Mike, she caught herself in a relationship with a past boyfriend Rob Valletta during the show's last season.

“Even with Rob, there was so many times that things didn’t really [seem] right, but I ignored it. I ignored signs, I ignored other opinions,” she told Us Weekly. “I was just like ‘No, no, no, this is perfect’ because I couldn’t admit that me jumping into a relationship a month after a divorce was a bad idea. I couldn’t admit that things weren’t perfect. I just wanted everyone to think, ‘Oh wow, this is her fairy-tale ending, she got divorced and met the love of her life. And everyone lived happily ever after.’ And that was not the case.”

“I think this year, I’ve done a really good job at beginning as honest as I possibly can be and vulnerable. If I’m sad, you’re going to see me cry. If I’m angry, you’re going to hear what I have to say,” she continues. “I think I held back for a long time and kind of tiptoed around certain people. I didn’t want to upset people. I wanted everyone to think that my life was perfect when it certainly wasn’t.”

While her relationship with Valletta came to an end after he called off the relationship in August of 2017, Scheana repaired her friendships with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney after feuding last season.

“If you follow me on social media, you’ll see the girls have been in my [Instagram] Stories and stuff, so you’ll definitely see a change in friendships from the beginning to the end of the season,” she explains to Us Weekly, noting that her castmates like that she can laugh at herself now. “That’s one thing I think Stassi, Kristen and Katie love about me is they’re like, ‘We can make fun of you and you’re not going to get your feelings hurt now?’ … I think that will be fun to see me not getting so butthurt about things that don’t matter.”
