It's been two years since Scheana Shay and Mike Shay got divorced in 2017. The Vanderpump Rules SURver and her ex shared their engagement, wedding, and even the aftermath of their split on the show, so fans are naturally curious about where the pair stand now.
In a December 2017 interview with The Daily Dish, Scheana said then that she hadn't spoken to Shay since the Season 5 reunion, where they saw each other for the first time since calling off their marriage. In the same interview, she also said she would "love to be friends with him again." She has since moved on and dated her now-ex Rob Valletta and is currently in a "friends with benefits" situation with Adam Spott on Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules. But it turns out, there's been a surprising change recently in her relationship with Shay.
In an interview with The Daily Dish podcast, Scheana revealed that she and Shay actually had a "closure conversation" following their divorce. "I actually did this past summer," Scheana revealed. "He really wanted it to be private especially after him having been off the show for a while, he didn't want to film that conversation. So I don't know if you'll hear me talk about it on any of the upcoming episodes. But we did; we sat down, I think it was early August, and had the most raw, real conversation since Season 5 reunion."
In fact, the talking hasn't stopped there: Scheana shared that the two are now friends. "We are; we don't talk often but I talked to him the day before I left for Australia and he's like, 'Oh, I know you always wanted to go there, I'm so happy for you, have so much fun, let's try and get lunch when you get back,' so we haven't actually seen each other again since that day but we constantly on a monthly basis try and make plans but then just with our schedules, it doesn't work. So we're in a good place where we're friendly but not BFF," she said.
