Scheana Marie is revealing which of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars actually work shifts at SUR Restaurant, where the Bravo series was initially launched in January 2013.
While appearing on Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley‘s new podcast series, Knot Too Taboo, earlier this week, the longtime reality star revealed, via a report from Too Fab on April 8, what goes down behind the scenes at the West Hollywood venue as she confirmed which three cast members of the show are currently working at the restaurant.
“Jax, Sandoval and Ariana most of the year kind of guest bartend,” she explained. “It’s not realistic to have people who have been on a television show for 8 years really working an 8 hour shift at a restaurant.”
Scheana then revealed that she and her Vanderpump Rules co-stars only worked normal shifts at the restaurant until season four.
“We’ve said this the last 4 years, the first four seasons we pretty much were really working full time,” Scheana continued.
Because Scheana and her co-stars have become so recognizable in recent years, it isn’t too easy for them to go into the restaurant where the series is filmed without being mobbed by fans.
“I have presented it to everyone, what if we do like a modified shift because we’re now making money outside of the restaurant, but everyone working in the restaurant isn’t,” Scheana admitted.
Because Scheana spends tons of time at the restaurant taking photos with the many fans of Vanderpump Rules who come to visit and hope to spot a cast member, she doesn’t think it is fair that she and the rest of the staff share tips.
“How unfair is it that we’re here half-a** working and it’s like, I’m busy taking photos and having conversations while other people are watching my tables and then I’m making the same amount of money,” she added. “It’s not fair.”
While many members of the Bravo reality show, including Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent, Kristen Doute, and Tom Schwartz, don’t actually work at SUR Restaurant, the newbies, including Scheana’s one-time nemesis, Dayna Kathan, and one-time hookup, Brett Caprioni, as well as Raquel Leviss, the girlfriend of James Kennedy, and Charli Burnett, do clock in for shifts.
