Fans of Bravo's RHOBH spin-off Vanderpump Rules, which follows the lives of Lisa Vanderpump's SUR staff members, know that Scheana Marie was unlucky in love during this past season. We watched her tell her now-ex, Michael Shay, that she would meet with a divorce lawyer after two years of marriage — however, it wasn't long before she found love again with actor Robert Valletta. So, who exactly is the reality star's new man? Here is everything you need to know!
1. You've definitely seen him before.
Robert has guest starred on a handful of shows, including True Blood, Ugly Betty, and Melrose Place. He also appeared in a handful of episodes for the soap operas Days of Our Lives and The Young and the Restless. More recently, we saw Robert in Dutch Hollow, The Head Thieves, and I Think My Babysitter's an Alien.
2. He stems from Hollywood royalty.
Robert's older sister is actress Amber Valletta, who starred in What Lies Beneath, Hitch, and TV series Revenge. Obviously, talent runs in the family!
3. They've already done a nude photo shoot together.
The hot couple teamed up with CARE Rescue L.A. — which is an animal rescue group. She shared their mission statement on Instagram along with the sexy snaps, which read, "Every year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are needlessly killed in our shelters. From newborns to seniors and everything in between, euthanasia does not discriminate. Only 10 percent of animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered. Overpopulation due to accidental or intentional reproduction leads to millions of animals being killed annually. Perfectly healthy, wonderful animals are murdered all the time, simply because the shelters are at capacity. There are very real problems with very simple solutions if we all helped to raise awareness and shed some light on these issues. That’s the naked truth. The Bare for CARE campaign is a platform to fight against the loss of so many innocent lives. It starts with us being a voice for the voiceless. Raising awareness is a huge priority for the Bare for CARE campaign. Ignorance leads to so many animals being killed and abused behind closed doors. We want to help spread the word and help open people’s eyes and hearts to the reality of what is really going on. These animals need our help and we need yours. Through awareness, we can help inspire change, and through change, we can start to make an impact on the lives of so many precious animals."
4. These two go way back.
"We dated on and off 10 years ago. We were talking over the holidays and I told him about my divorce. Then we hung out one night and just hit it off," Scheana previously told In Touch, adding Robert "brought a light back to [my] life.” She didn't stop there and continued to gush by saying, "Rob is fun and adventurous, and he makes me laugh. I feel like we’re equals. He owns a production company and has a new show coming out."
5. They're totally not breaking up — at least not now!
Scheana was quick to shut down Radar Online's report, where a source alleged, “Rob wants to break up with Scheana. He says she’s too demanding." Their insider also added that the reality star wanted to get engaged, but the actor "wants to focus on his TV shows” and “doesn’t want to go there yet.”
