Back in November, Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay filed for divorce from Mike Shay for reasons that still aren’t entirely clear.

Production sources have revealed that details of Scheana and Shay’s divorce will be featured on the current season of Vanderpump, but thus far, the season has mostly focused on disastrous marriages that haven’t happened yet (sorry, Tom and Katie).

Little is known about the cause of the divorce, but it’s widely believed that the split was prompted by Shay’s struggles with substance abuse.

But while there was reportedly no infidelity involved, Scheana has wasted no time in moving on with a new dude.

For some reason, she’s chosen to publicly reveal that she’s in a new relationship, but to also try and keep her boyfriend’s identity a secret.

Unfortunately for Scheana, this is 2017, and an international cabal of Internet sleuths brings its A-game to everything from exposing the mundanity of Hillary Clinton’s emails to figuring out who D-list reality stars are banging.

Last month, we learned the identity of Lala Kent’s secret boyfriend, and now the online community is reaffirming that we’re living in a post-privacy age by revealing the name of Scheana’s rebound man:

That’s Robert Parks-Valletta, a 35-year-old Los Angeles-based actor, whom Radar Online has identified as Schena’s mystery guy.

According to Valletta’s IMDb page, he’s best known for a 2009 film called Frat Guy, so yeah, he’s – how do we put this nicely? – not exactly crushing it.

If his last name sounds familiar, that may be because Robert is the younger brother of model Amber Valletta, who was a thing for a while in the ’90s.

All-in-all, he’s a step up from a dude who’s in a hip hop crew with Nicole Arbour, and we’re guessing that’s all Scheana really cares about right now.

There’s no word on how serious things are between Robert and Scheana, but it seems like more than just a friends with benefits situation.

Robert and Scheana have been spotted on multiple outings together, and he traveled to New York with her for her latest appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

We imagine for Bravo stars introducing your new piece to Andy is bigger than having him meet your parents.
