There have been rumors about Mike and Scheana Shay getting a divorce for a while, but now it is official. Scheana filed for divorce from Mike Shay on Nov. 30, 2016 after 16 months of marriage and 15 years of friendship. The two met in High School.
The two issued a joint statement to E! News. “We might have failed at our marriage”….”but we are committed to succeeding as friends and will continue to support each other’s personal happiness and professional success.”
E! News’ Erin Lim spoke with Scheana’s co-workers Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval about the sad situation. When asked how Scheana was doing, Ariana replied, “She’s good. I know that it’s been a lot of ups and downs. I’m not with her every second of the day, so I know that I’m not necessarily seeing the emotional moments. But when I’ve seen her, I know that there’s been good days and there’s been bad days. But she’s a really strong person, and I think she’ll be OK. I love both of them.”
About 2 months ago Mike went MIA for 6 days making charges to their joint credit card. The move appears to have been the last straw for Scheana who was fed up with Mike relapsing with drugs and alcohol. Mike has reportedly not been sober for a while now.
After that the two agreed to live separately.
The Vanderpump Rules stars Mike and Scheana Shay headed for divorce for some time, but this latest development looks pretty ominous. Mike and Scheana have decided to live apart after Shay went missing for 6 days a few weeks ago.
E News also spoke with co-star Lala Kent about the news.
“I had a conversation with Scheana, actually, today. I was going to start making music with her husband—soon to be ex-husband—and she texted me saying she’d appreciate if that didn’t happen. Woman-to-woman, I can understand that. I respect that,” Lala explained. “She came to me like a woman.”
As to whether or not the two can ever be friends again Lala said, “We’ll just see what happens.”
