Scheana Shay Explains Why She Was Upset About The Cost Of Katie Maloney’s Bridal Shower

Scheana Shay was criticized when she expressed her feelings over the cost of Katie Maloney-Schwartz’s bridal shower, but now she is explaining why she was really upset.

“It was tacky. I shouldn’t have brought it up to Katie,” she said during a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos. “We were in a conversation. It was just kind of like word vomit.”

But Scheana says she still finds the cost of the event outrageous. “I’m sorry, a three-hour bridal shower should not cost three grand. That’s insane to me. Like, that’s just crazy. And to think we’re going to split it three ways because we make more money out of the bridesmaids, that’s also not fair. I didn’t agree to that,” Scheana said. “I could have also gotten us a beautiful house for free. We could have had it at a gorgeous patio in a restaurant for free. So it was frustrating to me.”

Scheana also explained she was really upset because she was experiencing issues with her husband, Mike Shay. “I never meant to get Katie involved in that. It was very tacky. I agree with everyone who tweeted me about that. It was just I was at a breaking point with so many things this past summer, and a lot of things just came out wrong,” she said. “He’s running up my credit card bills and taking money out of our savings account and all of this. So I’m like, I can’t afford to spend thousands of dollars on a bridal shower when my husband’s already taking it from me.”

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.
