Scheana Shay hinted that she wants “more airtime” in Season 9 of Vanderpump Rules. She reportedly “liked” a series of tweets from fans who want more Scheana. This comes after Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute’s firings.
The VPR co-star got a bad rap. Scheana was portrayed as the boy crazed waitress. The show’s editor revealed that she edited the “Good as Gold” singer bad on purpose after she wouldn’t befriend her. Now, Scheana is getting justice. She’s hoping that people will get to see the real her. Read on to learn what’s on Scheana’s mind for the upcoming season.
Vanderpump Rules star wants “more airtime” after Bravo firings
According to Us Weekly, Scheana Shay “liked” tweets from various fans. The VPR viewers want more Scheana in Season 9. This comes after Bravo announced Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute’s surprise firings. Shay agreed with the tweets that referred to her as “such [an] icon” and “the #1 girl” on Vanderpump Rules.
“I hope it’s the Scheana show!” one fan wrote. “She deserves more airtime! With her hot new mans [sic]. Scheana is nice and can be very upfront as well which is a good reality star!”
Back in March, Shay spoke to Global News about the edits she received compared to her costars. Obviously, she didn’t think it was fair.
“I mean, I’m not happy with my storyline or whatever you want to call it, because it’s a very small percentage of my life that you’re seeing,” Shay explained. “Yes, I can be annoying and yes, I can be overly flirty. A lot of other women on the show are like that too but you’re not seeing that. You’re seeing other people’s careers and lives outside of the restaurant, but you don’t see mine.”
Bravo fired VPR editor Bri Dellinger last month after she admitted to purposedly featuring embarrassing moments of Shay. Meanwhile, Kristen and Stassi got the boot earlier this week. But they’re not the only ones. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni also lost their gigs. VPR fans slammed all four stars for their past racist actions.
“Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed that today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules,” a Bravo spokesperson confirmed to Us Weekly.
Scheana Shay says she “didn’t deserve” editing scandal
Last month, the “One More Time” singer broke her silence on the Vanderpump Rules editing scandal. In an interview with Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, Shay admitted she was “livid” when she heard about Dellinger’s infamous podcast interview, which is no longer online.
“Normally, I would go straight to social media and rant about it,” Shay said. “But thankfully, I have an amazing boyfriend who sees the bigger picture and doesn’t have an emotional relationship with the show, just with me, and wants the best for me.”
Shay then addressed the scandal on Maria Menounos’ Better Together show. She feels that she’s an “easy target” because she’s “so nice.”
“But with the way that I looked this season, I’m just like, who did I p*** off?” Shay said. “What did I do wrong? Because I just don’t think I deserved to look this way. … There is so much more to me.”
The reality star also found it “disappointing” that viewers only saw pieces of her life. She was also “jealous” of Schroeder’s image on the show.
“Stassi gets to be a celebrity on our show. That’s her job,” Shay continued. “Am I jealous of that, too? Totally. I wish we were all treated evenly. She got to have her podcast, her clothing line, her New York Times bestseller book – she gets to literally live her real life on our show. Whereas I’m not really a full-time waitress.”
That’s not the case anymore. Stassi lost her endorsements, podcast, and PR agency this week. On top of that, she lost her Vanderpump Rules spot.
