Following her split from Mike Shay last year, Scheana Marie is reflecting on their marriage with fresh eyes. The Vanderpump Rules SURver addressed their time together during an appearance on KTLA 5 Morning News on Thursday, and she shared what she learned from her 2-plus year marriage to the musician.
"I was definitely naive about a lot of things. There were a lot of signs that I ignored — things with his addiction and things I was very uneducated on," she said. "So I'm now a lot more educated on addiction. I know things to look for and I think that is one of the biggest things that I got out of it."
While Scheana and Mike were married, he opened up about his struggles with substance abuse on the show during Season 4. Scheana addressed fears he was using again as Season 5 of Vanderpump Rules came to a close. Later, Scheana stood by that choice to be open with viewers about his issues. She told The Daily Dish in January: "Even with his addiction and the substance abuse, thousands of people reached out to us via email, Twitter, or Instagram, just saying how inspiring it was that we spoke out about this on a public platform and how much we were able to help them and now they were seeking help and how they were able to come out to their family about their addiction problems. That made me be like, 100 percent, I know we did the right thing. I don't regret putting it out there."
