Brock Davies is defending his wife Scheana Shay for a taking a fan photo alongside Tom Sandoval while filming scenes for Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules.
“Caught in a moment with a fan, it’s hard not to reflect on the duality of public life,” the reality star posted to his Instagram Story on Friday, July 21. “Love and support on one side, and hurtful comments on the other – particularly about my wife. It stings, it’s personal.”
“Remember this – Vanderpump Rules is about real people, reaal friendships, and real emotions spanning over 15 years,” continued Brock. “This isn’t just entertainment, it’s a part of our lives you’ve come to appreciate. But with every unkind comment, there’s a real person at the receiving end. It’s not just a fleeting thought you share; it’s harsh words we read, feel and remember.”
Brock went on to call out the fans criticizing Scheana Shay directly: “Ironically, many of you posting these comments would eagerly smile and ask for a picture if you met us, just like this fan did with Tom,” he explained. “But we’re not just here for the photo ops. We’re here living our lives, sharing our journey. It’s high time we promote respect and empathy, not just for the ‘characters’ you see on screen, but for the real people behind them.”
He continued, “Let’s make this community as real as the friendships you tune in for. Let’s make it better. And if you don’t get this, then feel free to say what you comment to my face…”
Scheana Shay Denies Speculation She Has Forgiven Tom Sandoval
As previously reported, Scheana Shay has been playing defense ever since online fans saw photos of Scheana alongside Tom Sandoval while the cast has been filming Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules in Lake Tahoe.
Scheana herself took to Twitter over the last few days to call out fans for seemingly not understanding that she is just doing her job as a Bravo reality star.
“Who said all is forgiven??” the Bravolebrity tweeted, after being called out for hanging out alongside Tom. “We’re here for Lisa,” she added in another tweet, referencing the fact that the cast was in Lake Tahoe to see one of Lisa Vanderpump’s new restaurants.
While Brock may be doing the most with this Instagram Story statement, he is defending his wife — and rightly so. Unless fans wanted a season with the cast not interacting with each other, it was inevitable that they would be seen with Tom while filming.
