‘Vanderpump Rules’: Scheana Shay Is On Good Terms With Ex-Husband Mike Shay
After an emotional breakup, Scheana Shay from Vanderpump Rules shared that she and her ex-husband Mike Shay are in a good place today. Shay appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and a caller wanted to know what was the current status of their relationship.
When the couple parted ways, they had a raw encounter during a Vanderpump Rules reunion. Both left in tears, indicating that both were experiencing significant pain from the split. The couple got engaged and married while on the show. However, their relationship quickly unraveled, despite Shay pretending everything was fine.
Today she keeps in touch with her ex and the two have an amicable relationship. During the WWHL After Show actress, June Diane Raphael described Mike Shay as a sweet teddy bear. “Which is why he’s the only one I keep in touch with,” Shay says with regard to which ex is still in her life.
Shay offers an update
Cohen wants to know if Shay’s ex is happy and in a good place. “He is, I mean I think he’s still kind of finding himself, but he’s happy and he’s doing well,” Shay remarks.
The couple appears to have been on good terms for quite some time. Shay told Bravo’s The Daily Dish in 2017 that the two were working through the divorce fallout. “We’ve kept in touch quite a bit. There are little things that he left at the apartment that I’ve had to drop off or things that he’s had of mine,” she said. “Things have stayed amicable for the most part. Maybe one day we can be friends.”
The Shays found closure this past summer. They got together for a “closure conversation” and have stayed in close touch. “We are; we don’t talk often but I talked to him the day before I left for Australia and he’s like, ‘Oh, I know you always wanted to go there, I’m so happy for you, have so much fun, let’s try and get lunch when you get back,’ so we haven’t actually seen each other again since that day but we constantly on a monthly basis try and make plans but then just with our schedules, it doesn’t work. So we’re in a good place where we’re friendly but not BFF,” she told Bravo’s The Daily Dish.
Why did the couple divorce?
Shay is known for putting on a happy face, especially when she is struggling. She told Bravo’s The Daily Dish the couple tried to make it work but never could find their stride. One of the major reasons for the split was Mike Shay’s problems with addiction.
During a BravoCon panel, Shay opened up about how she didn’t understand how to deal with addiction at the time. “Especially Season 4, when we were dealing with my husband’s addiction at the time, I was very uneducated on that and it showed and I just got ripped a new a–hole on the Internet. But it made me get educated and inform myself of things that I had no idea about,” she said, Bravo reports. “So it was really hard to see all of that because I knew they were right, but it helped me grow as a person. So it’s just doing the right thing with the hate you get and turning it into something positive.”
