Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay has been getting slimmer nowadays. Being the spokesperson for weight loss supplement brand Hydroxycut, fans thought that the reality star lost weight using the pills. In a new interview, Scheana, however, insisted that she was able to shed those extra pounds the natural way.
According to Reality Tea, Scheana Shay has been getting quite a bit of hate lately on Instagram, with people body shaming her for being skinny. As she has posted about Hydroxycut several times now, many thought that it was what the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 star used to lose weight. Scheana, however, insisted that she got her ideal weight through diet and exercise.
“It’s the natural, right way to do it: diet and exercise. No pills, no gimmicks, no anything. I got on a meal plan; I worked out with a personal trainer, six days a week, for several months.”
The site reported that the brand actually contacted Scheana and asked her to represent Hydroxycut after she already lost those unwanted pounds. Scheana insisted that she used the diet pills as a source for an added energy boost. True enough, on her first Instagram post featuring the brand, she captioned it, “I did not take this to shed the initial fat.” Turns out, Scheana used the diet pills as a substitute for coffee before hitting the gym.
Reality Tea reported that Scheana lost a whopping 25 pounds. Her weight loss clearly came in handy judging from the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 premiere. At the OK! party, James Kennedy and Lala Kent accused their co-stars of not working on their “summer bodies.” At one point, James even asked Katie Maloney if she was pregnant.
“Wait, are you pregnant? Oh my god! Congratulations,” James told Katie, clearly making fun of her weight.
James also asked Scheana if she had any work done recently, saying that her nose “looked good.”
Back in March, during the Vanderpump Rules Season 4 reunion, fans of the show noticed that there is something different about Scheana Shay. According to Bravo, some viewers cannot help but wonder if the SURver had some work done. While Scheana is not shy to talk about her Botox injections, the Vanderpump Rules star insisted that she never got her nose fixed. The reality star claimed that the change in her appearance was probably because she lost a few pounds.
“I lost weight. I didn’t have work done. Believe what you want. My makeup is better and my face is thinner. Simple as that,” she tweeted.
If she were to have any work done, Scheana insisted that she would tell her fans about it. Other than the Juvederm fillers she got two years ago and the Botox injections she has been getting since 2011, Scheana claimed that she’s all natural.
“I swear.. I lose a little bit of weight and all of a sudden I’m ‘plastic’ and have had ‘so much work done.’ If I had, I’d own it,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 premiere, Jax Taylor was spreading rumors about his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and Kristen Doute kissing in bed. Jax insisted that she saw Kristen “went down” on Brittany.
Although Kristen admitted that she and Brittany shared a few “wasted kisses,” the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 star insisted that nothing sexual happened between them. Brittany was pissed that Jax kept telling everyone how he saw her and Kristen in bed together even after she repeatedly told him that nothing happened.
“Everybody has rumors spread about them but the fact that Jax is the one spreading the rumor is what’s super embarrassing. What kind of relationship am I in if my own boyfriend is doing this?”
Vanderpump Rules Season 5 airs Mondays on Bravo.
