Scheana Marie On ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ Her Music & Her Boyfriend [EXCLUSIVE]
Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo for its sophomore season next month, continuing to offer a glimpse into the life of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Vanderpump. Scheana Marie, who bartends at Vanderpump’s SUR Lounge and is launching a music career, chatted with Uinterview and gave the inside scoop on working with the reality TV star, her music and how things are going with her boyfriend Mike Shay. Once better known for dating Eddie Cibrian while he was still married to Brandi Glanville, Scheana is working hard at re-making her image.
Scheana, when asked about Lisa, is hard-pressed to name something unfavorable about being on her payroll, stating that the only thing she could think of is the restaurateur’s desire for perfection. “You feel like it’s the king and queen of England, everything has to be perfect, you have to know the specials detail for detail every single aspect of the menu,” Scheana admitted. “[Lisa] is always on top of it, so you just got to make sure you bring your A-game.”
The aspiring singer, who’s only been working at it professionally for a couple of years, also brings her A-game to the recording booth, where she managed to wow her music producer with her vocals on “What I Like.” “He kind of wanted a brunette, Britney type who could sing and do the vocals on this track, so I did a demo and then I came in and recorded the song,” Scheana revealed to Uinterview. “They loved it, made it and it was a hit.” Britney Spears, incidentally, is one of Scheana’s musical idols.
Scheana has also tried her talents at acting, appearing in her first major role on the Disney Channel’s Jonas. “I played the pizza girl, which was a huge deal. They wrote a song about me and I was in the music video with them. From there I booked 90210 on The CW, Entourage on HBO and Greek on ABC Family.” Now that’s she’s into more mature roles, Scheana would like to land more parts on HBO.
Shay, Sheana’s boyfriend, is also in the entertainment industry. “He's a musician,” she told Uinterview. “I've actually known him for quite some time, we went to high school together. I’ve known him for 13 years. We were friends in high school and we started dating three years ago. He is literally everything I’ve ever looked for.”
While Shay won't be spotted too often in the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules, Jax Taylor, Kristen Doute, Katie Maloney, Tom Sandoval, Stassi Schroeder, and of course, Scheana and Lisa will be retuning in full force on Nov. 4 in the Bravo show's season premiere.
