Scheana Shay Admits She’s ‘Worried’ That ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Hasn’t Started Filming Yet!

Scheana Shay admits she’s ‘worried’ that Vanderpump Rules hasn’t started filming yet for the show’s upcoming ninth season. 

“I’m worried that, I mean, ‘cause we don’t know exactly what’s going on. We were just gonna assume that with three cast members all being due in April, they would kind of schedule around that, but nothing has been said for sure,” she began on her “Scheananigans” podcast on Friday, November 20, according to Us Weekly

Shay is pregnant with her and her boyfriend Brock Davies’ first child. Shay’s co-stars Brittany Cartwright and Lala Kent are also pregnant with their first child.

Shay continued: “And now with all the counties in the state going back into purple, I don’t know if that’s going to affect what the tentative plan even was. That’s just in my head. Nothing has been confirmed.”

“SUR has been back open since mid-September,” Shay noted. “And then Pump just opened back up Halloween weekend. But TomTom hasn’t opened back up.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced earlier this week that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, 41 of the state’s 58 counties will be under lockdown from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Saturday, November 21. All non-essential work also must stop in the purple​​-tier counties.

While Vanderpump Rules typically films in the summer months, the temporary closure of Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants prevented the series from starting production.

The network announced in June that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were axed due to racially insensitive comments from their past. Andy Cohen confirmed earlier this month that the show will go on without Schroeder and Doute.

“I actually think in an odd way [the pandemic closing the restaurants is] going to create a lot of story that is absolutely real, and they’ll be able to lean into it. And frankly, Stassi and Kristen didn’t work there anymore,” Cohen said on “Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino” podcast on November 5. “And they’re both brilliant characters on television [but] I think it will be interesting to see whose there and who’s not and what’s really happening.”
