Spilling to E! News before the April 3 reunion special, the Vanderpump Rules star told her side of the breakup, detailing the downward spiral of her marriage, leading up to the moment she knew she had to end things:

“There were a lot of things from the beginning of our marriage that kind of tainted the whole relationship. Three months in I found out he had a pill problem. Right before our one-year anniversary, I saw some inappropriate text messages.”

TBH, we might be out even at this point. These are some red flags so big, Donald Trump would get confused and salute them. But even Mike’s cheating isn’t the biggest blow for Marie:

“Then, fast forward to our second anniversary, and I’m just trying to pretend like everything’s fine, because in my mind, we’re married — for better or for worse. This is the worse part, but we have the rest of our lives to figure it out. This is a temporary rough patch. I kept telling myself that, ‘It’ll get better. It’ll get better.’ And it did. In the beginning of 2016, everything was genuinely good. Then the cameras turned on again, and then he changed. That’s when I found out he started using again.”

Did you miss it? That’s OK, we’ll recap later.

Now about Mike using pills…

“I didn’t know that at the time. My mom and other people around me had noticed a change in his behavior. I was either oblivious to it or I just didn’t want to believe what I was seeing right in front of my face… I was always making excuses, but in hindsight I’m like, ‘Oh, my God!’ All of these things are plain as day and I just didn’t see it.”

Even a couples vacay with newlyweds Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz in September didn’t help. Because as nice as it was, things were worse than ever when they got back.

Scheana says she and Mike barely ever interacted:

“We were growing apart more and more. And then, towards the end of October, he just didn’t come home one day.”

That day happened to be one in which Scheana was dealing with grief over the passing of a family member. Bad form, fella.

But shockingly even that wasn’t the final straw. Scheana explained:

“During those two weeks, I was still willing to forgive him for leaving me the day someone passed away and taking all of this money out of my account and all of these things. I’m like, ‘I can get past pretty much anything.'”

“Pretty much anything” did not include what happened next. Scheana revealed:

“I found out he was buying pills again. That’s when I was like, ‘I’m going to give him one more chance to tell me the truth.’ … I looked him in the eyes and he lied to me. That’s when I was like, ‘Now I don’t have another choice. I know I fully cannot trust you ever again.’ … I was like, ‘I’m now done. I’m done. I’m done. Nothing at all can change my mind. I was willing to forgive you after you left me, and try and move past that, and work through it and start over and become best friends again and do all of this.’ I was still willing to try. The second I found out he was still lying to me — and had been for six to eight months — I was done.”

Scheana then asked for a divorce, which apparently blindsided Mike. We guess he was too self-centered to realize how self-centered he was being?

OK, we promised we’d come back to THAT moment we saw in her story. And here it was:

“Then the cameras turned on again, and then he changed.”

Yeah. It was filming the show that made Mike change.

Was it something specific Vanderpump producers did? Probably not. Some people just act differently when the cameras are on.

But according to the story Scheana is telling, we think THIS is the moment their marriage was doomed.

What do YOU think, Perezcious readers??
