Fans saw some genuine emotion and a lot of cringe-inducing melodrama on part one of the Vanderpump Rules season six reunion show this week, and the latter was mostly thanks to Scheana Marie. The 33-year-old cried throughout the entire show and eventually left the stage in tears, and if you watched VPR this season, then you know that the word that triggered her emotional tailspin was “Rob.”
Shay and Rob Valletta broke up as soon as Bravo wrapped shooting for the sixth season – more specifically, he dumped her – and the reunion was the first time she spoke publicly about the split. And what she had to say surprised many viewers.
“I was head over heels in love with [Rob],” she told host Andy Cohen. “I was for a really long time, and it didn’t work out, but I’ve loved Rob for 12 years, and he broke my f**king heart. For the first time, that genuinely broke me.”
Scheana added that with her divorce from Mike Shay there were many things she could justify, that they shouldn’t be together for this or that, but Valletta broke her heart.
Since she was married to Mike up until last year, it was a strange revelation that she had been in love with Valletta for twelve years and that this was the first relationship to break her. Basically, she admitted that she was in love with another man the entire time she was married, and the end of a four-month relationship was harder than her divorce.
According to Hollywood Gossip, it was clear from the beginning that Valletta wasn’t into Scheana, and despite her efforts to make things work between them, she ended up suffering the humiliation of a public dumping.
As the reunion show aired, both Valletta and Scheana’s ex-husband had their say on social media. Mike said that his ex-wife doesn’t think about anyone other than herself, and Valletta said he didn’t get a reunion invite because of Scheana’s expected reaction to the split.
Fans also found out that Scheana is single for the first time in a long time.

She eventually ran off the stage after Jax Taylor flipped out over her failure to attend his father’s funeral. He claims that she didn’t even offer condolences. But Scheana Marie says that she sent a text as soon as she heard the news.
It’s a classic case of he said, she said, but Taylor kept going after Scheana for missing the funeral, trying to set up his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright on dates, and not being able to “keep a boyfriend for more than five minutes.”
Part two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion show airs Monday night on Bravo.
