This season's Vanderpump Rules finale was a very difficult one for Scheana Shay. Soon after she celebrated the love of Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz at their wedding, the SURver returned to Los Angeles to face her own reality that her marriage of two years to Mike Shay was over.
Before the episode aired, Scheana told fans on Instagram that the finale was going to be "bittersweet" for her. She also asked them to "please be respectful."
Scheana also said on Twitter that she wasn't sure if she was going to watch the season finale of Vanderpump Rules. But then she finally decided to order "some Mexican food, have a good cry and wait for my bestie" Ariana Madix to come over and be there with her to watch her emotional heart-to-heart with Shay in which they both agreed to file for divorce.
Scheana revealed on Twitter that during that heartbreaking moment with Shay, even "the entire crew was the most somber I've ever seen them. They've been [with] us since the beginning."
Of course, when you put yourself out there, as Scheana has over the past five seasons of Vanderpump Rules, you open yourself up to all sorts of comments from the public about your personal life. Scheana encountered her fair share of Internet trolls during Monday night's episode, and she responded to some of them on Twitter. She explained to one that she was not dishonest about the state of her relationship this season as she described that her marriage was in the best shape it's ever been in early on. "I genuinely felt we were in a good place," Scheana clapped back.
But overall, Scheana received a lot of love from fans when she needed it most. "The amount of positive tweets/support I've received tonight is beyond heartwarming," she tweeted. "Thank you all for being on this journey [with] me!"
Scheana also assured fans that she's now focusing on the future. "Last night wasn't easy to watch, but I did and now it's over. Thank you all for your overwhelming amount of support. And thank you @ariana252525 for being my rock and watching w me last night," the SURver posted on Instagram. "Time for everyone to move on. #ImZenAgain."
Scheana and Shay will reunite at the upcoming Vanderpump Rules reunion. Catch a sneak peek at the intense moments to come, below.
