Scheana Shay has loved and lost in front of the entire world during her time on Vanderpump Rules. But these days she’s definitely feeling the love thanks to her romance with hunky Australian rugby player Brock Davies. The couple began dating last year and have kept their romance low-key ever since. And now we’re learning a bit more about the couple.
This couple, who teased they are “collabing on a fun new project,” noted they have a strong mutual respect for one another: “We both love what a good person one another is. We make each other feel very loved.”
And this is what the couple told The Daily Dish about their advice for couples, via email: “Pick and choose your battles. Some things are not worth fighting over.”
Scheana also spoke to The Daily Dish at Bravo HQ in a separate interview (clip above), where she opened up more about their romance.
You went public with your new relationship a few months ago. How is it going, especially now that you’re in the public eye together?
Scheana Shay: My new relationship honestly feels like the first real one I’ve ever been in. I don’t think I actually was ever truly, fully happy until now. I think I told myself I was happy. I acted like the whole world was sunshine and rainbows, when in reality, it’s not. But, I think you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince and I found a king.
What do you love most about Brock?
SS: The thing I love the most about Brock is how he treats me. He always makes me feel loved and respected, and that’s not something I’ve ever had in a relationship before. So, he just makes me happy every day and if I’m sad, he knows how to cheer me up.
What would he say he loves most about you?
SS: I don’t know honey, want to answer that one? [asks Brock off camera]
What does Brock love most about me? My kind heart. Yeah, I have a big heart, but it gets me in trouble. A lot of times, I’ll give too much and then get hurt, but I still — no matter how many times I’ve been hurt — I’m not going to change who I am because it’s not fair to the next person to treat them a way, just because of something that had been done to me in the past. I think he sees I have that big heart.
Sometimes, things are hard for me with opening up and being vulnerable, but I’m definitely getting better at that and he brings out the best in me.
What was your best Valentine’s Day?
SS: Honestly, I’m not big on Valentine’s Day. I think it’s a pointless holiday to waste money on, whether you’re in a relationship or not. I don’t even know that I’ve ever really gotten anything. I think probably the best thing I got for Valentine’s Day, Shay got me a jumbo, adorable teddy bear one year, and I’m a kid at heart. I love stuffed animals…. Actually, no! I’m going to take that back. It was the bear, but a handwritten card is my favorite thing to get, more than any materialistic thing. It’s so thoughtful and personal — and that was one thing Shay and Adam knew. A handwritten letter or card is the best gift I think you can get.
What was your worst Valentine’s Day?
SS: I would say working at SUR, but I made a lot of money that year, so it wasn’t that bad. Actually, I don’t think I’ve had a bad Valentine’s Day because even when I was single, I went out with six of my guy friends and posted it all over just to make Rob jealous and it’s so much fun doing that.
Do you have any plans for this Valentine’s Day? It’s your first one with Brock, are you thinking of doing anything?
SS: I found a — aw, I can’t say that yet… Again, I’m just not a huge Valentine’s Day person, but I was recently at the street fair in Palm Springs and I saw this adorable card that I had to get because it was really cute. Honestly, we might not even be together that day. He might be in San Diego, I might be in Palm Springs, so no plans. It’s just another day on the calendar, honestly. February 14 is no different than February 15 to me.
You have 364 other days!
SS: Exactly! I mean, I’m more about my birthday than I am Valentine’s Day. Yeah, so no plans, no expectations. If we’re together, then we’re together. If not, hmmm. It’s just another day on the calendar.
What a refreshing attitude.
SS: I’ve always felt that way and people think it was just something I would say before. But even when I’m in a relationship, I’m not like, “Oh my god, it’s Valentine’s Day. We need to do something.” I’m more like a Galentine’s Day girl! Let’s celebrate the single girls and do something with your friends, rather than trying to get dinner reservations at somewhere that’s overbooked. It’s just not my thing.
