"The truth is everything isn't great. It's not perfect," the reality star tearfully confesses to boss Lisa Vanderpump
“The truth is everything isn’t great. It’s not perfect,” a tearful Marie says. “And I keep trying to act like everything’s okay. It’ll get better. I just keep telling myself, ‘It’ll be okay, and it’ll get better.’ ”
When asked by Vanderpump what the problems have been, Marie, 30, replies, “It all just started kind of around like Christmas time. I noticed, just a few months in, I noticed his drinking increased a lot – just more than drinking.”
In addition to drinking, Marie reveals to Vanderpump, 55, that Shay started to mix prescription drugs with alcohol – sometimes taking as many as five pills a day.
“You know it’s like, ‘Oh my knee’s hurting so I’m going to take a Vicodin, but then I’m going to have a couple of glasses of wine,’ ” Marie explains.
