Scheana Shay was slammed for inviting friends over to her house

Scheana Shay from Vanderpump Rules tweeted that she wasn’t going to stop living her life and was going to invite friends over. Shay tweeted, “I will continue to live my life in Palm Springs or MDR w my friends and not live it in complete isolation or fear. Simple as that. Call me ‘ignorant’ but I’m not gonna stop living!” 

Shay’s tweet was met with a flood of comments, admonishing her for not making significant changes in her behavior. She fought back, clarifying she was inviting friends over to her home and could not see how she could be completely alone for 30 days. “‘Is it that hard to stay inside for 30 days?’ YES!” she responded to one person’s comment.

She finally got exasperated with all the heat she received. “Yes, meaning I’m not going to isolate myself inside alone for weeks. I’m sorry. It’s not going to happen and anyone who follows me will see that. I pray this virus passes soon and we can all go back to living our best lives. On that note, goodbye for now twitter.”
