On the February 26 episode, Marie bragged about Robert Valletta’s so-called love for her, which he cruelly told Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval didn’t quite exist — and claimed the couple had already named their first child. Scheana's Instagram followers were immediately outraged by her behavior.
“Is it embarrassing for you to watch the show and see how pathetic you look chasing Rob and not even being with him anymore when you acted like you were married already?” a follower wrote to Marie on her Instagram page today.
“Tonight’s episode f**king embarrassing!!! You're delusional and need professional help!!!” was another comment, followed by: “This season is hard to watch. I've never seen someone come across so desperate and insecure. Honest to God I've never seen anything like it.”
As Radar readers know, Marie and Valletta broke up before the show aired, but she had been begging him to come back.
Amid the backlash, Valletta rushed to Marie's defense — but didn't acknowledge he ever loved her.
“A lot of people are watching a TV show that was shot months ago, and TV shows are shot to create drama and intrigue. No one knows what happens behind closed doors and or when the cameras are off,” he wrote.
Valletta, who was rumored to have cheated on Marie, also explained the breakup.
“The reason I created space in our relationship was because of the world, not the person. Scheana and I have cared for and supported each other for 12 years no matter the circumstances or dynamic.”
The actor's own mother weighed in on the drama, leaving a message for Marie on her Instagram page.
“Darling Scheana, You are a kind and generous soul. We are so blessed to have you in our lives,” Lorilee Parks wrote.
Despite the split last year, sources told Marie still has hope they will get back together.
“Scheana would marry him in a heartbeat if he wanted to marry her,” a source told Radar. “But he’s told her that he does not want to be tied down."
