If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that the show’s past season wasn’t particularly kind to SUR hostess/aspiring pop singer/fake eyelash enthusiast Scheana Marie.
In addition to chronicling her divorce from Mike Shay, VPR Season 5 featured a storyline about Scheana being booted out of the chick clique that’s since dubbed itself the Witches of WeHo.
The politics of the group are complex, and providing a full explanation would take about as much time as giving you a complete history of the Soviet Union … and it would feature just as many nefarious characters.
Suffice it to say, Stassi Schroeder was in charge, then she fell from power, then she maneuvered her way back into the group, and while she allows Katie Maloney to serve in a sort of figurehead capacity, Stassi is totally back in charge these days.
That’s bad news for Scheana, who has little choice but to accept the current power structure and serve up the occasional pinot grigio.
The cast is currently filming Season 6, and sources say Scheana is more on the outs than ever before, to the point that she has yet to film with the other ladies.
Judging from their Instagram pics, the rest of the cast is getting along just fine …
… They’ve just replaced Scheana with Jax Taylor’s girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright.
Stassi’s squad posted the pic above to celebrate National Best Friend Day, which is the latest dumb thing the Internet expects you to care about.
Not to be outdone, Scheana posted her own Besties Day pic.
Hers, of course, featured her BFFs Ariana Madix and Lala Kent.
So it seems she’s not completely without allies.
The only problem is that Lala quit the show last year, and Ariana’s storylines mostly center around her relationship with Tom Sandoval.
(Despite her insistence that she has no interest in marriage, we’re guessing Ariana and Tom will be the next Vanderpump couple to get hitched.)
These days, Scheana is dating Robert Valletta, but there’s no word on whether or not he’ll appear on the series.
Stassi, meanwhile, is back together with boyfriend Patrick Meagher, who will be joining the cast on a part-time basis this season.
Sounds like Ms. Schroeder is only becoming more and more powerful while her foes stagnate.
It’ll take a lot of white wine to get her fall off her throne now.
