Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay will reunite with her ex-husband Mike during part three of the reunion which airs Monday night.
Scheana is revealing that things had gotten much worse between the couple since the last time we saw them film and before they saw each other on reunion day. “We hadn’t spoken for about a month-and-a-half before [the reunion], and it wasn’t an amicable last conversation we had,” Scheana told The Daily Dish.
Scheana explained that Stassi Schroeder had tweeted something prior to the reunion after Scheana gave her blessing that angered Shay, which she later quote tweeted and then responded to. “I just wasn’t in a good place at the time, and I just didn’t care. And I felt like, ‘Well, you hurt me, and now I’m gonna hurt you.’ Sometimes I operate that way, and it’s not a good quality of mine, but I was very hurt,” Scheana said. “So [Shay] saw that and had screenshot it and sent it to me and basically said, ‘Eff you. Don’t ever contact me again.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ I responded and just said, ‘Thank you for hurting me as much as you possibly could. And best of luck to you. I hope you get help. I know everything.’ And I kind of just left it at that.”
Scheana never thought it would be as difficult as it was to come face-to-face with Shay. “And then right when they talked about like, ‘After this break, Mike Shay will be here,’ I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ I had a full-blown panic attack. I was like, I need a shot or I need something. I was just freaking out, and I didn’t think I was going to be so emotional. But it was just everything coming back at once, and it was really difficult,” she said. “And then I see him and he’s sitting right in front of me, and he looked so different. Like, his shoulders were really buff and he had his ears pierced and his hair was different. I was just like, ‘Who are you?'”
“James and Jax were the funniest part of the whole day. Like, every time I would start to have a little bit of an anxiety attack, they would just make me laugh and then they high fived, and I’m like, ‘What is going on here?’ And then James crawling on the floor. It was just so comical,” Scheana explained. “It was the comic relief I needed that day because I knew Shay wasn’t until the end of the day. So all day at lunch and everything, it’s just in the back of my mind. And then that day, I burned my hand at lunch. So then I’m dealing with being in physical pain on top of emotional pain. It was just a very difficult day for me, but the comic relief helped a lot.”
Although the day was a hard one, Scheana says it helped her move on. “It was weird, but I think that day did bring some closure to me, at least,” she said.
