Scheana Shay is getting ready – literally – to film the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 10 reunion.
The Bravolebrity shared her thoughts on the upcoming special with co-star Lala Kent and show alum Kristen Doute on Friday’s episode of her “Scheananigans” podcast, predicting things could get heated at About Scandoval.
“We need cages,” said Shay, 37. “Everyone needs their own bodyguard because phew.”
Kent, 32, agreed, adding that “security will certainly be tightened”.
For the moment, it is not known whether Doute, 40, will be present; however, Page Six can confirm that she returned to shoot some scenes after the cameras were retrieved to document the fallout from Tom Sandoval’s affair with Raquel Leviss.
Doute dated Sandoval, also 40, before beginning his nearly 10-year relationship with Ariana Madix.
However, Madix, 37, dumped the co-owner of Schwartz & Sandy last week after finding out he had been cheating on her with Leviss, 28, for months.
Madix was in West Hollywood, Calif., watching Sandoval’s cover band perform on March 1 when she discovered a sexually explicit video of the former beauty pageant queen on her phone.
Madix then called Leviss, who was in New York with Shay.
“After recording ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ Scheana and Raquel went out for a drink with friends,” an insider previously told Page Six.
“Sometime in the night, Scheana lost Raquel and then found her outside the bar on the phone with Ariana, who Scheana could hear bawling.”
When Shay asked the SUR server to explain what was going on, she eventually came clean, which led to “a heated confrontation” before the two women “went back to the hotel separately.”
Earlier this week, Leviss filed for a temporary restraining order against Shay, claiming the “Good as Gold” singer punched her in the face during their spat.
Leviss then shared shocking footage of his alleged injuries, including a bruised eye and a cut at the top of his eyebrow.
In response, Shay’s attorney called Leviss – whose real name is Rachel – a “known liar and cheat” for claiming his client physically assaulted her.
“Scheana never hit Rachel, period,” Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, told Us on Thursday, noting that Leviss “betrayed everyone close to her.”

Shay’s attorney went on to say that “the alleged dark marks around[Leviss’s]left eye have been there for months.”
Confirming our report that no one in the ‘Pump Rules’ cast is talking to Leviss after his alliance with Sandoval made headlines on March 3, Rahmani added, “Neither Scheana nor the other cast members want nothing to do with Rachel in the future.”
The attorney believes the judge “only heard a one-sided account” of the alleged altercation and “looks forward to presenting the full and true story at the March 29 hearing.”
A representative for Leviss did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump believes Shay punched Leviss in defense of Madix, who had been dating Sandoval since 2014.
“I think she slapped her,” the gang boss told Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” Wednesday, noting that Leviss and Madix had been “best friends for about 12 years.”
Cohen – who moderates the reunions – admitted he wasn’t sure Shay and Leviss could attend, noting the special should be filmed before the end of the month.
