‘Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix Dishes on Scheana Shay’s New Boyfriend

Well, that was fast! The recently divorced Scheana Shay, aka star of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules, already has a new boyfriend!

Although Shay admitted she had been seeing someone as early as last month to Andy Cohen, she was pretty tight-lipped when it came to her new love.

Rumor has it that Shay is dating soap actor Robert Valletta, who’s appeared on Days of Our Lives, The Young and the Restless and Hawaii-Five-O.

Although bestie Ariana Madix wouldn’t deny or confirm her boyfriend’s identity, she did admit that she thought he was a great fit for Scheana Shay.

On WWHL she said,

“I think he’s awesome. I think he’s a really nice person. He’s a very smart person. And I think he has a really high emotional intelligence. I think he’s a great communicator and a really fun guy, and I wish them the best.”

She added,

“Scheana and her new boyfriend have known each other for a really long time, but I think only really maybe Kristen had met him before because he does a lot of charity work,” Ariana shared. “But he’s definitely not somebody that Scheana was talking to regularly. I don’t think [she] really ever even expected what happened to go that way. I don’t think she ever expected to see this guy over the holidays and [develop feelings]. So I don’t know. I think it’s really cool. I think it’s a funny testament to how things change over time in life, and you never know what’s gonna happen.”

Speaking of Kristen Doute, the ex-SURver echoed Ariana’s sentiments, previously telling The Daily Dish,

“I mean this might be the happiest I’ve ever seen Scheana.”

Aw, so cute! Here’s to hoping we get some paparazzi pics of the couple real soon!

Scheana previously announced her divorce from Mike Shay after only two years of marriage. The two originally met in high school but didn’t start dating until much, much later. Prior to Mike Shay, Scheana was involved with Brandi Glanville’s former husband.
