“Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay recently made some stunning revelations about a past relationship. On the Aug. 19 episode of Actionpark Media’s Flashbacks podcast, the 35-year-old TV personality revealed that she was once in a ‘Sexual Throuple’ with John Mayer. Shortly after the singer split from Jennifer Aniston.
Speaking on the Flashbacks podcast, Shay revealed that she met Mayer in 2008 just before he broke up with Jennifer Aniston. And she and “The Hills” alum, Stacie Adams, entered a ‘throuple.’ Shay further explained that she was ‘living with Stacie at the time’ and that the unconventional relationship between her, Stacie, and John ‘went on for about six months.’
How It All Began
According to Scheana, it all began in 2008 when she was working as a bartender and cocktail waitress at the Grand Havana Room, a cigar club in Beverly Hills. Shay revealed that she was working a private party at the Grand Havana Room hosted by the “Gravity” singer and ended up “getting wasted with him and Aniston.”
“Every time they did a shot, they would get me a shot,” she told podcast co-hosts, Heather Rae Young and Jessica Hall. “They invited me to go back to her place in the Palisades after for an after-party.”
While she never wound up going to Aniston’s house, Shay said that Mayer returned to the Grand Havana Room a few weeks later after he and Aniston had split. The reality star explained that she and Adams, known to “The Hills” fans as Stacie the Bartender, began hanging out with the “New Light” singer.
“We had a little throuple going on”
“This went on for about six months, that we hung out. We would go to his house. It just became, you know, kind of the three of us. We had a little throuple going on. But then there was, like, me and another her. Everyone always had attention.”
When asked if she was implying that three-way relationship was a ‘sexual’ one, Shay replied in the affirmative. She also added that she and Mayer engaged in a similar type of fling with a different woman, whose identity she did not disclose, during the span of their relationship.
“I definitely got a little jealous”
Towards the end of her relationship with John, Scheana admitted that she ‘definitely got a little jealous’ because “I knew he liked her more,” Shay said of Adams, who served as a bridesmaid in Shay’s first wedding.
“And I was like, ‘Wait, I brought you into this, like and now you’re getting more attention than I’m getting, like what’s up with that?’ And then even after him and I stopped talking, they continued talking, and there were like a lot of things.”
As if more fuel needed to be added to the fire, Shay was also jealous that Stacie was approached to appear on the popular MTV reality series, “The Hills.” Shay claimed that Stacie had zero interest in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. Whereas it was Shay’s dream to infiltrate the scene.
“Her and I had like a year of just awkward friendship falling out, but then came full circle a year later and have never been closer.”
“If it wasn’t for John Mayer, I wouldn’t be on Vanderpump Rules”
Shay went on to explain that was eventually fired from the Grand Havana Room because of her relationship with Mayer after one of their coworkers overheard them talking about it. And the waitresses were not allowed to “fraternize” with its members.
While Mayer wasn’t a member of the Beverly Hills location, he was in New York, Shay said. Scheana said she “never told a single soul” about her connection to Mayer, but the scandal made its way into the tabloids.
“It was all over,” Shay said, adding that she called Mayer to tell him she didn’t leak the story and he believed her. “He was like ‘No, it’s cool, I don’t think you would do that, like we’ve been hanging out for six months. Like, you probably would have done it by now.’ And so I was like, ‘You know I’m losing my job over this?’ It was the week of my birthday. ‘I don’t think as a cocktail waitress we really get like a severance package.'”
Shay ended up getting a new job at the Villa Blanca restaurant, owned by none other than Lisa Vanderpump. The job later earned her a spot on the popular reality show. “So if it wasn’t for John Mayer, I wouldn’t be on Vanderpump Rules,” Shay said.
