Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie has insisted on multiple occasions that she is single right now. But thanks to paparazzi pics and Instagram stories, during the past few months fans have started to wonder if she is dating Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D DelVecchio – or at the very least entertaining the idea. And now, after the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, the dating rumors have exploded thanks to some interesting social media activity.
According to Bustle, it all started back in March when Marie tweeted, “hey @DJPaulyD you should be here.” This immediately raised questions among fans, and they wondered if the comment was a joke, an attempt at flirting, or if something was really going on. And, most importantly, people wanted to know how the two reality stars knew each other.

Instagram did give fans some answers. It turns out the two met through mutual friends, and it happened in a “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” kind of way. When Marie moved to Las Vegas for her show Sex Tips For Straight Women From A Gay Man, she started hanging out with The Challenge star Kailah Casillas who is dating musician Mikey P. And, Mikey P knows Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and became buddies with DJ Pauly D through his Jersey Shore co-star.
Fans started to take notice when Marie and DJ Pauly D started to tweet at each other. And in May, Twitter user @haleyxhargrove tweeted that she wanted to play celebrity matchmaker, and Marie and DelVecchio should go on a date the next time they are both in Vegas.
Marie ended up quote-tweeting the post and added a “Haha!” and shrug emoji. Then Mikey P quote-tweeted Marie’s post and added his own comments acting like he was introducing Marie to DJ Pauly D. He also added a cry-laughing emoji, making it appear to be all in good fun.
Then we fast forward to last weekend’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, and the two reality stars apparently danced together that night, and she tweeted, “@DJPaulyD about damn time! LOL.”
This led to more back and forth on the social media platform, with Marie liking posts about her dating the Jersey Shore star.
Of course, none of this means that the two are actually dating. It could all be in good fun. But, considering DelVecchio is rumored to be worth around $24 million, he could be a good catch for Marie.
New episodes of Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo later this year. Meanwhile, new episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation air Thursday nights on MTV.
