Scheana Reveals Unseen Vanderpump Rules Reunion Moment with Ariana: "More Layers"

Go inside the off-camera conversation between Scheana Shay and Ariana Madix.

By Allison Crist

Part 3 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion tied up a lot of Season 11's loose ends, but there are indeed a few questions that remain — one of them being where Scheana Shay stands with Ariana Madix

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Thankfully, Scheana shed some light on the matter during the May 31 episode of her podcast, Scheananigans. Reflecting on the disagreements she and Lala Kent had with Ariana throughout Season 11 and during the three-part reunion as well, Scheana said, "It was a lot of things going on where, for Lala and I, there were so many more layers, and it was so hard. And that night after the reunion, you didn't see it, but after Ariana and Katie [Maloney] were talking, Ariana came over to me."

Scheana went on to detail the unseen reunion interaction with Ariana: "She gave me a hug. She said, 'I love you.'"

"And then I went into the dressing room to check on Lala," Scheana added after previously explaining that despite her concerns about her friendship with Ariana, she also "didn't want [Lala] to feel alone at the reunion because we were both frustrated during the season." 

"I was like, Ariana, okay? Lala, okay? I did feel like I was doing both," Scheana said.

Are Ariana Madix and Scheana Shay friends after the reunion?

Though the two shared a sweet moment once filming wrapped on the Season 11 reunion, Scheana acknowledged that their friendship "is going to be tough to navigate in the future" because of how close she is with Lala, someone who's not on the best terms with Ariana at the moment. 

"Ariana's not someone I just want out of my life for the rest of my life. It's a friendship that I feel like it's gonna need work, and I think Lala understands that," Scheana said. "I just think right now everyone kind of needs some space."
