Scheana Marie is letting everyone see the truth about what is going on in her life on this season of Vanderpump Rules. It was really hard for Scheana to focus on this part of her life this season, but she went for it and it may have been a good thing for her. Hollywood Life got the chance to speak to Scheana and get the scoop about sharing her personal experience with viewers and she even talked about huge spoilers regarding what will happen this season.
“[My husband’s painkiller addiction] wasn’t something that I was super excited about filming, like my wedding or pretty much everything else that I had filmed. That was what was going on in our lives at the time, and we both signed up for this. We both signed contacts. I’m an open book, and [Mike Shay is] more reserved, but unfortunately, [his addiction] was what was going on at the time and the cameras captured it. But I think that’s one the great things about our show — it’s raw and real. There have been thousands of people reaching out to say how inspiring it’s been for Shay and I to tell our story on addiction.”
Scheana Marie did go on to share some big spoilers about what will happen this season on Vanderpump Rules. Mike Shay was dealing with his addiction this time last year. He has been sober for a year now. By “sober” she means not mixing pills with alcohol. Things seem to be going great for Scheana and Mike and viewers will get to see some of those happy times during the rest of the season. Scheana and Mike have been to couple’s therapy and are living a healthier lifestyle now. Scheana Marie went on to explain a few more things that fans get to see this season.
You’ll see our Hawaii trip — that was a lot of fun, a little bit of drama. Some issues resurface there. I also filmed stuff with my new makeup line — ScheanaShay By Starlooks.
Reality Tea recently shared that Scheana Marie is saying that this hard time in her marriage made her a better wife. Scheana Marie also says that she doesn’t want to be looked at like she is Shay’s mom instead of his wife.She is also reportedly glad that Shay has actually been able to use his voice this season and people are now getting to know him better. Scheana Marie also shared that Mike Shay has cut back a lot on his drinking, but has not stopped completely. If he ever does choose to totally give it up, Scheana will be on his side to help him through it all. Shay has also been taking real estate classes and doing some DJ-ing. Things are looking up for him in the career department, as well.
A lot of people wouldn’t share something so personal on a reality show, but Scheana Marie said the cameras were around and they allowed them to film it. The show was able to capture her wedding and a lot of things in their life. Viewers are likely glad that Scheana Marie and Mike Shay are letting them into their lives instead of keeping their challenges a secret. It may help people with addiction to see that they are not alone in the fight while showing everyone that addiction can happen to anyone.
