After going through a divorce from Michael Shay in season five of Vanderpump Rules, season six has turned out to be a happy one for Scheana Marie. The current episodes are focusing on Marie’s relationship with Rob Valletta, but as fans know, the couple broke up in October after the cameras stopped rolling. Since they were friends for years before getting together and time has passed since filming, is it possible that the Marie and Valletta have gotten back together?
According to Bustle, the two remain friends and are on good terms, but they don’t see much of each other right now.
“We’ve not spoken as much, because it just became a little too hard for me to remain such close friends with someone who at the time I was still in love with,” Marie says.
The reality star explained that she couldn’t completely move on with her life because it weighed too heavy on her heart to be close to someone who she was no longer close with in other ways. Ultimately, she needed to let go of the friendship a little bit.
All I’m going to say about tonight’s episode is that this is the most loyal man I’ve ever met in my entire life and he never left my side the night this so called incident took place! People will believe what they want but i don’t care. I know him better than anyone and him and i are just fine. @robsvalletta I always will have your back! #kickstand #pumprules ?
During Marie’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live back in January, Valletta called in to explain his side of the breakup. He said that it was difficult in her circle of friends to have a successful relationship because the group comes after you and attacks you from all sides.
Valletta says that even though the members of the VPR cast are all great individually when they get together, they are savages, and Marie’s reality TV world is hard to feel secure in.
Marie said that the conversation Valletta had with Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval in Big Bear about him saying “I love you” was a perfect example of how difficult it was for her ex to adjust to life in the Bravo world. Valletta isn’t friends with either of those guys, and it was awkward for him to have that kind of a conversation with people he barely knew.
The episode with that conversation aired late last month, and fans went wild on social media when the show put their relationship under the microscope.
Valletta immediately went to Instagram to defend his and Marie’s behavior and explained that people don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, and the show is designed to create drama.
Marie says that Valletta stuck it out as long as he could, but once filming wrapped on season six, it felt like a weight lifted, and he needed space from the reality world.
When it comes to the possibility of the two getting back together, Marie says that she isn’t ruling anything out. But, she would never leave Vanderpump Rules to make it happen, and Valletta wouldn’t want her to.
Right now, her job is her life, and anyone that comes into her life needs to accept that or not be a part of it. Hence her rumored new relationship with Bachelorette cast-off Robby Hayes.
