Home » Scheana Shay Reveals the Real Reason Stassi Schroeder Unfollowed Her and Slams Their Friendship as “Surface Level”
Scheana Shay is speaking out about why her former Vanderpump Rules co-star, Stassi Schroeder, made the decision to unfollow her on Instagram earlier this month.
Following Stassi’s unfollow, which came after Lala Kent accused Scheana of lying about the moments that followed her June miscarriage, Scheana explained why Stassi is no longer following her before slamming their past friendship and revealing which of her co-stars were “really supportive” of her after she lost her first child.
“I unfollowed her first. She returned the favor… For the exact thing that I praised her about — for being there for me — is the exact reason we aren’t friends anymore,” Scheana said on the #NoFilter with Zack Peter podcast on October 14, giving a nod to the statements she made about the way in which Stassi reached out to her with support after her miscarriage.
According to Scheana, she received a text message from Stassi just before Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s gender reveal party in which Stassi informed her that she no longer wanted to be close.
“She basically just said that she had no interest in continuing anything more than surface level with me because she was informed I was reading her private messages to strangers,” Scheana explained, noting that Stassi felt betrayed when she publicly spoke of her miscarriage support.
“And I’m like, ‘You’re not even going to give me the benefit of the doubt? You’re going to hear something from a stranger, a fan, a Facebook group — whatever — and you’re just like, done?’ So, I was like, ‘You know what Stassi, we’ve been surface level for years. I’m fine continuing that way. I wish you nothing but the best,’” Scheana recalled.
While Scheana has endured a number of falling outs with her Pump Rules co-stars in recent weeks, she has also remained close to several others, namely Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix.
“Tom and Ariana are like my rocks,” Scheana gushed. “They have always been there for me, firsthand… [Kristen Doute] was really supportive. [Brittany Cartwright]’s been really supportive. And [James Kennedy], [Raquel Leviss], and I — I mean they’ve been such good friends of mine for years, but I feel like even with this pandemic, we’ve gotten even closer.”
In addition to the castmates named, Scheana confirmed she’s also close to Charli Burnett, who joined the show last year for season eight, and to Max Boyens, who was fired, along with Stassi, Kristen, and Brett Caprioni, in June due to racist tweets he shared years ago.
“[Charli]’s been awesome. And Max and I are super close. He’s actually spending the night tonight! We’re doing a photoshoot tomorrow for my Boy Crazy line,” she revealed.
