'Vanderpump Rules' Star Scheana Shay is Pregnant Months After Suffering Miscarriage

Scheana Shay is going to be a mom!

The 35-year-old Vanderpump Rules star announced on Wednesday (October 28) that she and boyfriend Brock Davies are expecting their first child together.

“IT’S ALL HAPPENING APRIL 2021!!! We are expecting our rainbow baby!!! 🌈👶🏻” Scheana wrote on Instagram.

News of Scheana‘s pregnancy comes after she announced back in June that she had suffered a miscarriage.

“We got pregnant so quickly,” Scheana shared with People. “My doctor told me to wait one period and ovulation cycle and then we could try again. It was the first and only time we tried and I had a feeling right away, but it was so soon to tell because I wasn’t even close to missing my period yet. I just had a feeling.”

She continued: “After going through the miscarriage and knowing those signs,” this time around, “it was comforting knowing, ‘Okay, you’re not spotting, you’re not cramping, you still feel pregnant, you’re still tired, your boobs still hurt.’”

“I had to keep convincing myself it’s okay because last time I woke up one day and there’s no other way to explain it, just that I didn’t feel pregnant anymore,” Scheana recalled. “I told my mom that and her heart broke because before my sister, she too had a miscarriage and the same thing — she said she just felt not pregnant one day.”

“After a miscarriage, I was definitely even more aware of my body, but just so much more cautious and scared … I was just too afraid to lift up a 5 lb. weight. I was like, ‘But what if that makes me have a miscarriage?’ ” Scheana said. “It was every little thing, which I’m sure was driving Brock crazy because he’s like, ‘You’re fine!’ But I was just like, ‘I need to make sure, I need to make sure’ — and now we’ve made sure! Everything is good.”

Scheana is now the fourth Vanderpump Rules star that is pregnant. Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent are both expecting girls while Brittany Cartwright is expecting a baby boy.

Congrats to Scheana and Brock!

Stassi Schroeder Admits She Was a 'Karen,' Discusses Cancel Culture After Being Fired from 'Vanderpump Rules'

Stassi Schroeder has given her first interview since being fired from the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules and she’s discussing the racial misconduct incident that caused her to be canceled.

The 32-year-old reality star and her co-star Kristen Doute both were called out by their other co-star Faith Stowers back in June, when she brought up how they both reported her to police for thinking she was a woman who was robbing places after an article was posted on a website about the crimes.

Stassi and Kristen were both fired from the show and they last their jobs and representation. In a new interview on The Tamron Hall Show, Stassi was asked about what happened and even admitted she was a “Karen” in the past.

“I do absolutely understand,” Stassi said after being asked if she understood the ramifications of her actions. “I’ve spent the last three months working with a teacher and learning about everything. And there was so much that I didn’t know. I didn’t understand that just because something wasn’t about race for me, doesn’t mean it’s not about race for the other person because I’m bringing my experience as a White privileged woman to this situation and she’s bringing her experience as a Black woman into this situation. And because it’s about race for her, it is about race. And that’s something that I’ve realized.”

“I am the reason why I’m in this situation. I think a lot of people wanted me to focus on cancel culture and whether I was a victim or not, and it’s just not how I feel at all,” she added.

Stassi, who is pregnant with her first child, doesn’t plan on returning to reality television.

“That ship has sailed,” she said. “And my life feels very different right now, I think when something like this happens and you get pregnant on top of it, you take inventory of your life and you think what is going to be the best for my future child and I think getting drunk and starting conflict and misbehaving on a reality show isn’t my journey anymore.”

Lance Bass Says Jax Taylor Is Stepping Away From Their Business, Jax Says He Isn't Amid His Controversial Comments

Lance Bass recently mused on his podcast that his business partner, Jax Taylor, should also be let go from Vanderpump Rules due to past racist comments that have surfaced.

One of the instances happened when he commented on the size of 90 Day Fiance star Jay Smith’s nose back in 2018.

Lance said, “He will lose out. I do not see Bravo keeping him. I have a feeling soon this will be done. It gets bigger and bigger.”

“It’s going to cost him everything,” he added “He’s stepping down from [our] Just Add X [business venture]. We can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.”

Just Add X is a cocktail mix company and unfortunately, Jax has a different side of the story.

“Last week the Just Add X website had been hacked, showcasing some hateful slurs, which Jax felt horrible about. In an emotional state, Jax had texted Lance and the Just Add X team offering to step down from the company if that was the direction they wanted to take,” Jax‘s rep told Us Weekly. “The team immediately followed up with a phone call with Lance and the team reassured and fully supported him.”

The statement added, “It was decided that Jax would continue to stay on the team and that they all had his back given these unpredictable times. The statements from Lance on the podcast today are not only untrue but also extremely confusing and shocking to say the least. Jax is still very much a partner and founder of Just Add X and supports the team and the brand whole-heartedly.”

Bravo just fired four other stars of Vanderpump Rules for racist comments.

Lisa Vanderpump Breaks Silence on Firing of 4 'Vanderpump Rules' Stars Over Racist Behavior

This week, four Vanderpump Rules stars – Stassi Shroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni – were fired over past racist and insensitive behavior.

Now, Lisa Vanderpump is releasing a statement about the decision that has been made.

“Over the past two weeks, many things have been brought to my attention, of which I and many others were previously unaware. It was necessary for me to be quiet until now, until decisions had been made. Now I can freely speak from the heart,” Lisa posted. “As we’ve seen such devastating sadness that has played out globally, we all have a part to play to create a kinder, more just society. My hope is for this generation to treat each other with respect and humanity, and realize that actions have; and should have, consequences.”

She continued, “I love and adore our employees and I am deeply saddened by some of the lack of judgment that has been displayed. As many of you know, after watching me for 10 years, I have always been an equal rights activist and ally – my family, my businesses and I condemn all forms of cruelty, racism, homophobia, bigotry and unequal treatment. We’ve never tolerated it in the workplace or our lives. While you only see a fraction of our employees on the show, a specific friend group, across all of our companies, we have always been a very diverse group of people – every color, ethnicity and sexual orientation. Most of our employees have worked for us for over a decade, and we have become a family; one that embraces and celebrates each other’s differences. I am proud of the inclusive company that we’ve created. We will continue to embrace diversity as one of our greatest strengths, and I’m excited to give you deeper look into the multi-faceted fabric of our company in the future.”

Lisa continued, “The world needs to move forward with a kinder generation. Everybody deserves to feel safe, heard and appreciated in their communities. So much of what has transpired in the world is not right, fair or acceptable. We all have work to do to create a society we can be proud of and I hope as we venture forward, we strive to live in a world where kindness and compassion are our highest values.”

One of the fired stars released a statement about the decision today.
