Mike Shay Shares His Side Of The Story On The Vanderpump Rules Reunion

Part three of the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 reunion was shocking, especially when Mike Shay joined the cast to talk about the demise of his marriage to Scheana. Viewers were surprised when Scheana revealed that she had once caught Shay exchanging inappropriate text messages with another woman.

The tension was like no other when Shay walked on the stage and Scheana was in tears telling Andy that she didn’t want to see her ex.

When asked if his addiction issues were something he would have brought up on TV on his own he replied, “No, never. That was something that I was dealing with, with my wife… between us. My parents didn’t know. My family didn’t know, so I was forced to tell everyone and now everywhere I go, I’m labeled as a druggie.”

“And I’m a home wrecking whore,” Scheana added. “You get labeled and it doesn’t leave you. I’m sorry that came out, but…”

“I didn’t label you that,” Shay cut Scheana off. “You labeled yourself that. That’s a great example of how she treated me.”

Scheana continued, “I never would have left you. I would’ve just stayed in a marriage that wasn’t great and…”

Shay cut in, “That’s not true… I told you, I said, ‘We will make this work,’ and you said yes to everything and then when I showed up to film, you divorced me on camera.”

“I find out you were buying pills behind my back again and still lying to me,” Scheana claimed. “Right then, I was just like, “checked out, done.”

Andy asked Shay what it’s like to read online that Scheana has a new boyfriend. He said it was unfortunate and quick and noted that he didn’t know who the guy was until Scheana said, “You follow him on Instagram. Rob.”

Shay replied, “That’s the guy you’re dating?” He added, “Hmm. Interesting.”

Scheana also claimed that her marriage started to have troubles three months in when she caught Shay with the pills. She told Andy the trust in their relationship was broken immediately.

Andy pointed out that Shay looked surprised by Scheana’s answer and said that for him the marriage started going south “about a year ago.”

Scheana noted that after she saw the “you on top of me” text from a girl that was sent to Shay, she had caught him texting another girl and that is where their relationship fell apart and it was “devastating.” Scheana also revealed that Shay had talked about meeting up with this girl, but she lived across the country, so it would have been difficult.

Shay explained, “I met this person, she came to Mixology, and I worked there. She was there with her friend. Maybe the texts were inappropriate or a little further than just a friendship, but it was definitely a connection I didn’t have with her.”

What did you think of the shocking reunion?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    He just sat there mumbling the whole time , not making one complete sentence. I am not sure he’s as innocent as I thought he was

      He looked better at the reunion than he did the day Sheana divorced him on camera. Just saying. She even said he looked buff when she wrote about it. He looked very thin and sickly, as well as very upset, when she divorced him on camera.

    The fact that he initially just would not talk was so annoying and suspicious – At First. BUT, when it came out that she brought up his addiction last year on camera (6 months in to him being sober!) that turned me instantly. That is unforgivable what she did to him… yes, for a story line.

    she should have kept his addiction between them. he’s right in saying her label as a home wrecker was not of his doing so to bring that up in comparison is so selfish of her. so because she is labelled, he should be too?? that makes no sense. scheanna is selfish and I’m glad Mike no longer has to deal with his narcissist spouse any longer. Rob, good luck buddy. u will need it. although my gut tells me he’s using scheanna for his own exposure.

    Sheana showed her true colors. She actually called him over to film the show to divorce him on camera. Who does that? Sheana, the girl who had no problem dating a married man herself when she dated Eddie Cibrian while his wife Brandi was pregnant with their second child. Now Shay was maybe fooling around while married to his wife who could care less about him. Maybe this is karma?

    The whole thing was a train wreck. I support active recovery and wish him only the best. As far as Sheanna goes – she is calculating and only worried about her “fame”

  • Real Sandy

    Nicki should post Mike Shay’s rap song video that he made about Sheana. She is pictured in all of it and he does not have nice things to say about her.
    I do wish him the best. Hopefully he will move on to someone who is supportive and respectful. Yes, she did blab to the world that he was a druggie, without thought of the consequences or her husband’s feelings at all. Sheana is way too self absorbed to really care about anyone else.
