Scheana Marie has found love again after filing for divorce from Michael Shay!
According to a new report, the Vanderpump Rules star is dating actor Robert Valletta, who is the younger brother of Amber Valletta.
“Scheana wasn’t looking for anything; she just got out of a marriage. But things happened and this feels right. They’re seeing where it goes, but are really enjoying each other’s company,” a source told E! News. “Her friends and family really like him! People think this could lead somewhere. She’s been through a lot. Everyone’s happy for her.”
One pal in particular who is incredibly supportive of the relationship is Kristen Doute. While she would not say his name at the time, she dished on how excited she was that her friend moved on earlier this week.
“I’ve known him for a few years,” the former SURver explained during a Facebook Live chat with In Touch. “I love him, I think he’s a really great guy. She’s happy.”
In Touch exclusively revealed back in November that the former couple would split after two years of marriage. At the time, Shay was rumored to be struggling again with addiction, as he disappeared from the home they shared and slowly started draining money from their bank account.
“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,” the former couple said in a statement. “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.”
The singer’s friends and costars rallied around her during this difficult time, and Stassi Schroeder also opened up to In Touch exclusively about how Scheana handled things.
“I’ve never been more proud of how someone’s handled a divorce,” she explained. “I don’t think I could have handled it with the amount of grace that she did, and the efficiency of how she did. She was really strong and she’s been really strong, and I’ve been very proud to watch that.”
