Scheana Marie and Stassi Schroeder ended Vanderpump Rules season one as good friends, despite their rocky starts. Unfortunatley, things didn't last. According to Scheana, Stassi used her when her own "best friends" had abandoned her after she and Jax split, but when they returned, Stassi wasted no time tossing Scheana aside and getting back to normal with her other girl friends.
On last night's episode, after weeks of awkward confrontations, Scheana and Stassi sat down to talk about Scheana's new gig as a writer at Pandora's project, The Divine Addiction, and during their dinner, they seemed to get things back on track. But as fans have seen, things aren't always what they seem.
"Here's the thing. I really did not want to sit down with Stassi. I've been a writer my whole life. I don't need tips from Stassi on how to write my column," Scheana explained in her December 16 Bravo blog. "I simply decided to be the bigger person and make an effort so our work environment -- both at SUR and The Divine Addiction would be less hostile. At the time of the dinner I truly thought Stassi was being sincere saying she wanted us to be friends again. However, seeing her so quiet at Peter's birthday made me rethink our little chat."
Scheana, being the person she is, remains positive about what is going on around her and to see her so hopeful that she and Stassi had finally moved on from the tension lingering between them is sad. Here she is having a good heart and opening up to a second chance and then there's Stassi, acting cool to her face but then going right back to the tension as soon as the dinner ends.
Later in the episode, Scheana experienced some backlash after giving a "lap dance" to SUR manager Peter Madrigal. Although she never actually touched him and certainly wasn't trying to be sexual, many of her co-stars felt it inappropriate.
"The 'lap dance,' if you can even call it that, was completely platonic and all in good fun. Shay knew ahead of time that Lisa asked me to get the party started, and he and Schwartz planned on tag teaming Peter with a dance when I was done," Scheana explained. "I never danced 'ON' him, even when his shirt was off. I did not grind on his pe**s or any part of his body. I simply danced in front of him just to have a little fun because the rest of the girls were boring. It was not inappropriate and really, at the end of the day, the only opinion that matters to me is Shay's -- and he thought it was funny."
Scheana and Shay have been together for years now and trust one another completely. While some men may be jealous over such a thing, Shay knows Scheana and he knows that she would never jeopardize their relationship or act inappropriately with another men.
As for the fight with Katie, Scheana isn't taking it too seriously.
"The fight outside with Katie was quite comical to me. I was not drunk and I was in complete control of my words and actions," she said. "Katie on the other hand thought she was 'practically engaged' when Schwartz had no idea of this. Katie doesn't get to see herself when she's drunk. She doesn't realize how mean and hurtful she can be."
