Obviously, the scene from last night’s Vanderpump Rules that’s attracting the most attention today is the one in which Brittany Cartwright flipped out on Jax Taylor after hearing a recording in which he trash-talked her to the woman he later slept with behind her back.
(She already knew about–and was cool–with the cheating.)
But it wasn’t the only interaction that has VPR obsessives buzzing today.
Though he made his debut in the season premiere, last night’s episode offered the deepest insight yet into the character of Scheana Marie’s then-boyfriend, Robert Valletta.
Turns out he’s a giant douche.
Okay, that might be a bit harsh, but Rob is the type of dude unironically toasts to “falling in love with something new every day.”
And it seems he may also be the type to sleep around on his girlfriend.
These days, Rob and Scheana are broken up, but back when the show was being filmed, they were still moving at warp speed.
Or perhaps we should say Scheana was moving at warp speed.
On last night’s episode, she discussed her desire to get married to Valletta the moment her divorce with Mike Shay was finalized.
Valletta dodged that topic of conversation, for the obvious reason–Scheana is clearly a smidge insane–but also because he almost certainly banging someone else at the time.
In the episode, Kristen Doute informed Scheana that Rob made out with some random hostess well after the two of them had gotten serious as a couple.
Scheana–who has criticized several of her female friends for being naive about their boyfriends’ infidelities–refused to believe Kristen, explaining that Valletta “isn’t a kisser,” whatever the hell that means.
The fact that Rob and Scheana recently downgraded their relationship to “friends with benefits” status has led many VPR fans to conclude that Scheana eventually discovered the truth.
But remarkably, both parties still claim Valletta was never unfaithful, and they’re offering up some incredibly lame “evidence” to support their claims.
Scheana appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live last night, and Valletta called in to the show to basically say “who ya gonna believe, me or your own eyes?”
According to the “actor”, he and Scheana broke up not because of his cheating, but because of her catty group of friends.
Amazingly, Scheana sat there and co-signed his explanation.
“The truth is, it’s really hard in her circle of friends,” Rob told Andy.
“Individually, when they’re by themselves, they’re really great people, but you put that group of people together and they’re savages,” he continued.
“They come after you, and it’s really hard to have a successful relationship with those people coming and attacking you from all sides.”
When Scheana was informed by Cohen that 85 percent of viewers polled believe Rob cheated, she replied:
“Well, 85 percent of the people don’t know the man I was dating.”
Interestingly, Valletta never addressed the allegation directly.
We think that might tell you all you need to know.
