Scheana Marie Shay and Mike Shay: It’s Over!

It is all over for Scheana Marie Shay and Mike Shay.

The couple, best known for their roles on Vanderpump Rules, announced on Wednesday afternoon that they were splitting up after two years of marriage.

Scheana actually filed the official legal documents on Tuesday.

In a joint statement, the reality stars say the following to Us Weekly:

“While we have made the difficult decision to move forward separately, our story will continue on through the love and mutual respect that we have cultivated throughout our 15-year friendship.”

“Much of the recent speculation and reporting on our relationship has been misguided, and we have come to an amicable decision on all matters.”

“We might have failed at our marriage, but we are committed to succeeding as friends and will continue to support each other’s personal happiness and professional success.”

Hmm …

Scheana Doesn't Want Drama

Anyone who fires up their Internet connection to watch Vanderpump Rules online or tunes in to Bravo each week is well aware that the twosome has seen its share of trouble of late.

Mike, for example, has battled a substance abuse problem for years.

Earlier this month, Scheana Marie grew concerned when her husband reportedly failed to return home after band practice. She panicked when she was unable to track him down.

In a 2015 episode of her popular reality show, Scheana Marie staged an intervention for her man.

Following a year of sobriety, which followed eight years of a painkiller addiction, there was a fear that Mike has fallen off the wagon.

But he shared a post on Instagram on November 7 that quieted this fear.

“I am not missing. I am sober. I am Happy!!!” he wrote, adding:

“Don’t believe everything you read.”

“I love my wife and will always love my wife. Whatever is going on between us will stay between us! I love my family and my family loves me.”

“A lot of things have been said out is protection and anger by many people. I am just ready for the next chapter in my life!”

It’s unclear right now whether the divorce is directly related to Mike’s ongoing struggles. But it’s very safe to assume so.

In any case, the next chapter of life Mike spoke about will be taking place as an unmarried individual before long.

About a year ago, Scheana sat down with Entertainment Tonight and said the following about her marriage:

“On the show, you don’t talk about being on the show. You know, we’re not the Kardashians. We don’t see cameras and all that.

So, it’s like, it’s hard when we’re fighting about something we can’t fight about for everyone to see, because that is a struggle.

“I don’t like to live with regrets. I like to live and learn. And one of the things, I think, about our show is how real it is.”

“It’s unscripted. We’re a group of friends who love each other, can’t stand each other, and same with Shay.

“You know, we’re not always perfect.”

Heading into this season, she also teased new insights into her marriage, and hinted that it wasn’t going well on the home front.

“You will see a different side to our relationship this season, and that’s all I’m going to say,” she previewed to Us Weekly just a few weeks ago.

It will be interesting to see how the relationship continues to play out on Bravo in the coming weeks, considering episodes were filmed awhile back.

The couple married on July 27, 2014, in a ceremony at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, California.

The wedding, which their co-stars all attended, was filmed and aired as part of Season 3 of Vanderpump Rules.

Because of course it was.
