Scheana Shay Clears Up Misinterpretations About Drug Addiction

Scheana Shay has been watching Vanderpump Rules with the rest of the world, and she is reliving the drama surrounding her husband’s addiction issues. Mike Shay revealed on the show that he had been drinking too much and mixing alcohol with prescription pills. He came clean to his friends, and they were shocked.

Scheana Shay told her husband she would be there for him, and they started working on his sobriety. It doesn’t sound like Mike went to rehab, but Scheana has said that his sobriety is indeed a work in progress. It sounds like they are working on it together, even though the world has already made plenty of assumptions about the couple.

According to a new Bravo report, Scheana Shay is now revealing that she is thankful for all the support she has received over the past few weeks, but there are some things that were reported wrong. Fans saw how the confrontation happened on Vanderpump Rules, but Scheana says that some things have been misinterpreted.

“I just want to say today how thankful I am for my amazing husband and everything he’s been [through] and accomplished. It’s been a long road and it’s not over yet,” Scheana wrote on Instagram, adding, “I appreciate all of your support you’ve given us but also some things have been misinterpreted.”

Apparently, Shay’s own words have been twisted. She believes that viewers may have misinterpreted her words. On Vanderpump Rules, it sounded like Scheana said that she would leave her husband if he wasn’t completely sober. Shay reveals that the comment was actually a part of a story about a first date she had with someone right out of rehab when she was 22-years-old. It wasn’t a threat that she would leave her husband behind if he was drinking.

“Not in any way speaking about Shay currently. I would never even for a second consider leaving him if he chose to be completely sober. I would support him all the way and go sober myself! We are married!! For better or for worse and just trying to figure things out in front of the whole world,” Scheana revealed on Instagram.

“Shay is a grown man and one who I love and support very, very much! If he wants to drink still I said to try and cut back. That’s what I meant by ‘get a buzz, don’t get drunk. I am not his boss. I would never encourage something that was bad for him, same as I cannot make decisions for him, but I will help him with whatever he needs,” Scheana continues.

Scheana Shay has known her husband for years, so she does know that he needs to make his own decisions and mistakes. They met in high school, but they didn’t enter a romantic relationship until 2010, according to Bustle. The two dated for a while, and Scheana got engaged around the time she started filming Vanderpump Rules. Their wedding was featured on Vanderpump Rules Season 3. Despite his struggles, Shay is standing by her man.

“I don’t know a lot about addiction, that’s true. But I do know that he’s my entire world,” Scheana said to wrap up her Instagram post, adding, “He’s doing what he thinks is best for him now and what makes him happy and I support him 10000000%. I am so f***ing proud of him for everything he has already accomplished and will accomplish in the future!”
