Scheana Shay is joking about her “advanced” age of 35 in her newest Instagram post. The Vanderpump Rules star — who turned 35 last week — posted a sizzling bikini photo to social media after one of her co-stars made a crack about her age.
Scheana shared two photos of her posing in Palm Springs, California with her boyfriend. The reality star and singer wore a high-waisted, fringed white bikini with cut-out sides and oversized white cowboy boots. She pulled her hair back in a high ponytail.
In the first photo, she posed alone as she sat and stared into the camera. In the second image, she propped the heel of her boot on the bare thigh of her boyfriend, Brock Davies.
In the caption of the post, Scheana — who has been vocal about her decision to freeze her eggs so she can have a baby later in life — joked that middle-age never “felt so good.”
Fans and famous friends — including Scheana’s Vanderpump Rules co-stars Ariana Madix, James Kennedy, and Randall Emmett — reacted to her birthday look with comments and fire emoji.
“Since when is 35 considered middle-aged?” one fan asked.
“You don’t look a day over 25!” another wrote.
“I love your fearless attitude… no matter what age, you carry it with confidence,” remarked third user. “Never hating, just appreciating a woman who enjoys living life!!!”
“Those boots are definitely made for walking,” a fourth admirer added.
Vanderpump Rules fans may recall that earlier this season, Scheana’s slightly younger co-star Brett Caprioni described her as a “middle-aged woman” who likes to party.
Brett later tried to explain his “middle-aged” comment on the Vanderpump Rules aftershow. In a video posted by Bravo, the SUR employee stated that he thinks middle-aged means being “in your 30s,” and he admitted even he falls into the category at age 31.
Scheana later slammed Brett as she noted that he’s just a few years younger than her.
“Call me middle-aged, motherf*cker? Rude!” she said.
Middle-aged or not, Scheana celebrated her birthday with her longtime co-stars. Despite the fact that the coronavirus pandemic resulted in a virtual Vandeprump Rules reunion taping, Scheana was able to party with her co-stars via the video conferencing platform Zoom last week, according to Us Weekly.
The birthday girl was joined by pals Brittany Cartwright, Peter Madrigal, Lala Kent, Tom Sandoval, Raquel Leviss, Stassi Schroeder, Beau Clark, and more for a remote meetup to celebrate her big day.
