Scheana and Mike Shay came face-to-face at the Vanderpump Rules season five reunion after ending their marriage and the cast was shocked by how awkward their face-off was.
“None of us knew what to expect. He totally cut himself off from all of us and in some ways understandably. So mostly we wanted Scheana and Shay to have the floor and to talk and work it out. So we all just kind of sat there,” Katie Maloney-Schwartz told the Daily Dish. “I think both of them had some hard time articulating some things, but it was definitely the most quiet … But ultimately it was good but that was really tense moment.”
The couple announced their divorce in November, sharing the news after a little over two years of marriage, and viewers were given a glimpse inside their decision to split during the Vanderpump Rules season 5 finale. And Tom Schwartz admits the moment was definitely heavy. “To try and hash that out in that setting, I just felt so bad for them,” he said. “It was really uncomfortable.”
And Katie teased there will be a moment that surprises viewers. “You’re gonna see how it all happens, but there was a moment there. I don’t think anyone was expecting that — myself included. Things needed to be said and addressed and squashed,” Katie said.
Katie also admitted that she never really wanted to be in a feud with a former SUR hostess. “I don’t have enemies. I don’t like animosity. I don’t like walking around feeling that there’s somebody who wishes ill on me. And I’m not gonna start now. So it took some time and some space to kind of come to terms with that, ’cause obviously last summer I was nowhere near willing to forgive her, and I didn’t want to see her or even talk to her just because I was emotionally and mentally not there. I was busy planning the wedding and just didn’t want anything to do with it. But a lot of time has passed and there’s been a lot of meditating on the thing, on the matter.”
