The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills first introduced controversial Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay as the catalyst for Brandi Glanville’s divorce from Eddie Cibrian after being caught in an affair with the actor. While Brandi was still starring in the popular franchise, she had a run-in with the SUR waitress during a function hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. What came next was an extremely awkward interaction for the women, but Brandi prevailed, thanks to her sharp tongue.
While the affair may seem like it happened ages ago, especially since Scheana has moved on, the saga made for compelling reality TV. More details of the affair were revealed when Vanderpump Rules premiered as a spinoff in 2013. At the time of the scandal, Eddie and Brandi were still married. Scheana revealed she met Eddie seven years prior, in 2006, when she was 21 and single. Scheana said that after dating him for six months, she found out he was married, ending the romance. However, she and Eddie later made up, but their reconciliation only lasted a few months.
Brandi Confronted Scheana About The Affair With Eddie
During the SUR setup, Brandi finally got her chance to confront Scheana, telling her that if anyone was going to cry, it should be her since she “lost everything.” At the time, the shell-shocked Scheana patted her eyes dry and let Brandi speak her mind. For years, Scheana was targeted by fans who considered her a homewrecker. The “Good as Gold” singer finally spoke out via Twitter, noting that Eddie had ruined his marriage, not her.
Brandi Credits Scheana For “Saving” Her
While the two women may not be best friends, the RHOBH icon credits Scheana for saving her. Brandi once revealed that she believed Eddie’s affair with the country singer LeAnn Rimes was a one-time thing. However, after finding out about his affair with Scheana, she knew her husband’s words could no longer be trusted. In 2009, Eddie filed for divorce from Brandi, and the split was finalized in 2010. Eddie went on to marry LeAnn in 2011, two years after they hit it off on the set of the Lifetime TV movie Northern Lights.
Even though Brandi may have been left heartbroken, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum is thriving as a single woman. Despite fans being done with Brandi, she has written three books, launched her podcast, and even starred on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip- Ex-Wives and will star in another season of Ultimate Girls Trip. As for Scheana, she married Brock Davies after a tropical wedding and has one child, Summer Moon Davies.
