“I would be the Bachelorette. [But] I don’t want to go on The Bachelor to become the Bachelorette,” Scheana told Us Weekly in March 2019. She added that she would be the series’ lead “in a heartbeat.”
Scheana has had multiple high-profile relationships without the ABC dating series, however. Back in 2009, the SUR waitress was wrapped up in Eddie Cibrian’s divorce from Brandi Glanville after news broke he was having affairs with both Scheana and country singer LeAnn Rimes.
“It was just a mess. I ended things there, I stopped talking to him, and I’ve never talked to him again,” the “Good As Gold” singer recalled to Us in 2013.
After dating soap star Robert Valleta (more on him later!), Scheana started dating Mike Shay. While the twosome wed in 2014, their marriage was over after two years amid the musician’s struggle with substance abuse.
“I think season 4, it got really hard just dealing with Shay’s addiction and martial problems and season 5, pretending like everything was fine,” Scheana told Us in November 2018. “I felt like I wasn’t really being my true self. I was putting on this facade of ‘everything’s sunshine and rainbows and no, no, no, I’m really happy.’”
The reality personality then reconnected with Valleta and documented their relationship on season 6 of Vanderpump Rules, but they ultimately split in August 2017.
“With Rob, there was so many times that things didn’t really [seem] right, but I ignored it. I ignored signs, I ignored other opinions,” Scheana explained to Us in November 2018. “I was just like ‘No, no, no, this is perfect’ because I couldn’t admit that me jumping into a relationship a month after a divorce was a bad idea. I couldn’t admit that things weren’t perfect. I just wanted everyone to think, ‘Oh wow, this is her fairy-tale ending, she got divorced and met the love of her life. And everyone lived happily ever after.’ And that was not the case.”
While Scheana is still looking for her perfect match, fans of Vanderpump Rules will continue to watch her dating life play out on Bravo.
