The reality TV star opened up about the new dynamic of her relationship with Rob Valletta, admitting that they are more ‘friends with benefits’ than anything else now. Vanderpump Rules celeb Scheana Marie and Valletta started going out not long after she and now-former husband Michael Shay split. In October, however, Scheana and Rob put an end to their relationship – sort of!
During a recent interview, the woman gushed about the fact that ‘the love still exists,’ adding: ‘The relationship doesn’t, but the friendship and love are very much there. We talk almost every day; we are still involved in each other’s lives. But where our career paths and living situations are going right now, it is not working out and it is just a lot of pressure that is now released.’
As fans of the hit show may know, Scheana will be moving to Las Vegas early next year in order to headline the play Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man.
That being said, long distance is not really ideal for the two.
She shared that they support and love each other a lot regardless of the fact that they are not technically ‘together.’
In fact, it was Rob who helped her shoot the very audition tape that landed her the role.
Scheana also called their relationship ‘easy’ no matter what form it takes (be it friends, lovers or married couple) and hinted that they might just get back together in the future.
‘We are very similar, we get along. It was easy to hop in so quickly because it was him. No one else in the world would I have dated so shortly after getting a divorce.’
For now, Scheana feels great to just focus on herself for a while.
