Vanderpump Rules: Scheana Shay’s growth…or lack-thereof

Vanderpump Rules remains in limbo and Scheana Shay took a gamble on a Scheananigans podcast guest that eventually led her to get caught in a lie.

Scheana Shay has been a main cast member on Vanderpump Rules since the start of the show in 2013.  Though she has always been a part of the group, Scheana often did her own things away from Kristen Doute, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, and Stassi Schroeder.  It seemed that no matter how long they were friends, Scheana didn’t mesh very well with anyone besides Ariana Madix.

On her podcast, Scheananigans with Scheana Shay, Scheana had Danica Dow’s ex, Brett Willis, come on the show to discuss…something.  On the episode titled “Can’t spell Thanksgiving without the ‘tea,'”  the podcast turned dark pretty quickly when they started discussing Danica and her reaction to Scheana’s miscarriage.  Brett told Scheana that Danica thought Scheana was being “strategic” in her releasing of that information.

Scheana also commented that Danica never reached out when the miscarriage got out, but based on now-deleted tweets by Danica, she did reach out to offer support.  Scheana even responded and thanked her for reaching out, so what gives?  As this episode picked up speed this weekend, Scheana removed the entire episode from various streaming platforms.

After listening to the pod, both Danica and Dayna Kathan started tweeting about how they didn’t appreciate Scheana’s take on things today.  Both Brett and Danica have been accused of being violent towards one another, but why would Brett bother going on the pod just to trash Danica?  It seemed like they were all just bonding over a mutual dislike.

The funny part is that this isn’t Scheana’s first time accusing someone of not reaching out after a procedure.  She made a huge deal when Stassi didn’t text her after she got her teeth done, not that it is remotely the same kind of procedure, but still.  This is Scheana’s modus operandi.  Unfortunately, Scheana shouldn’t expect everyone around her to care as much as she might about others.

We also know that sometimes Scheana can exploit situations to elicit sympathy, i.e. when she used her husband, Michael Shay, and his sobriety as a major part of her storyline.  Sometimes it just seems that Scheana hasn’t grown much during her time on the show.  In fact, it seems like no one on Vanderpump Rules has grown during their time on the show.

The moral of the story here is that everyone sucks.  This wasn’t a great idea for Scheana to have Brett on when she knows he has a restraining order on Danica, and vice versa.  Of course, he has nothing nice to say.

In addition to that, why would she come for Danica after all of this time?  It made her look bad.  And third, Scheana obviously lied about Danica not reaching out.  Overall, this backfired in a big way.  Just another day on Scheananigans, I guess!

Vanderpump Rules is on Bravo….for reruns.
