After days of worrying about Shay’s excessive partying and depression on the Nov. 16 episode of ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ Scheana confided in Lisa and told her that her husband has been mixing pills and alcohol. Plus, Tom Schwartz went shopping for the perfect engagement ring for Katie!
As one relationship seemed to be heading for disaster on the Nov. 16 episode of Vanderpump Rules, another one seemed to be heading for the altar. It was a mix of emotions for the SUR crowd this week.
Scheana and Katie may have given new girl Lala a hard time about lying to them last week, but when Lisa found out that her newest employee lied, she didn’t care all that much. And that’s because she didn’t like the fact that Scheana and Katie were giving Lala such a hard time. So in essence, their plan only backfired. Them attacking Lala just made Lisa like her even more.
But Scheana didn’t seem to care about Lala this week because she was having her own problems. She worried her marriage may be in trouble, as it was revealed that her husband, Mike Shay, has been keeping secrets. During separate one-on-one talks with Ariana and Lisa, Scheana revealed that Shay has been extremely unhappy and mixing Vicodin pills with alcohol. He even slept at his parents’ house for a few nights.
Meanwhile, Jax and James competed for Lala’s affection, but James seemed to have the upper hand. According to Lala, it’s because of his “accent,” as she usually doesn’t go for the “skinny” guys. It’s funny, though, because James is technically still dating Kristen even though he cheated on her. But she doesn’t know that yet. And he’s definitely not ashamed by it, as evidenced by his cocky interviews during the episode.
Finally, Tom Schwartz made a big step towards his commitment to Katie, when he went engagement ring shopping with Tom Sandoval and Scheana. He settled on a ring that will cost him $7,000, which doesn’t seem like a lot of dough for an engagement ring, but those modeling gigs must not be paying so much because Schwartz almost fainted when he heard the final tally. Too bad he quit PUMP — he could’ve made a ton of money there. And despite her marriage troubles, Scheana talked about adding a bigger diamond to her engagement ring. What?!
