BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Lisa Vanderpump claims on RHOBH this month that she did not know that Scheana Marie was Eddie Cibrian’s former mistress when she had filmed the RHOBH scene at Sur with Brandi Glanville in 2012. Lisa Vanderpump claims moreover that no one at Sur nor Villa Blanca had ever of Scheana Marie having an affair with Eddie Cibrian before that 2012 RHOBH scene. Brandi Glanville tells viewers that is simply untrue.
LALATE, however, can reveal that is highly unlikely that Lisa Vanderpump and her staff at Sur and Villa Blanca never heard of the affair by their fellow staffer. The reason is simple. From 2009 to 2011, Scheana Marie, then “Scheana Marie Jancan”, appeared across countless national tv and print news outlets, and even here, detailing her romance with Eddie Cibrian. She appeared repeatedly on America’s biggest syndicated entertainment tv shows, on camera, detailing her “heartbreak” after she learned that Eddie Cibrian had “cheated” on her and found a new love. And Lisa and her staff of two restaurants never saw that either.
Below are pictures from Scheana’s 2009 Myspace account showing her posing with a series of single male celebrities. The pictures were covered by news as Scheana detailed her affair with Eddie.

Jancan would eventually tell national tv news, and in print, that Eddie cheated on her with LeAnn. “I knew they were co-stars, and I didn’t notice much chemistry between them in the movie. Eddie’s with LeAnn now, but it’s just a fling. Eddie cheated on Brandi. He cheated on me. He’s going to do it to LeAnn.” But Lisa and her two staffs never saw that either.
In fact, the situation was over-reported by news from 2009 to 2011, that Eddie had to issue a news statement about Scheana, then Vanderpump’s employee, through national news to basically stop it. “Apparently the press wishes to continue to play out Eddie Cibrian’s domestic situation publicly with an unfair flair of tabloid fervor. Eddie is a devoted and loving father first and foremost and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately for everyone’s benefit.” But Lisa and her two staffs never saw that either.
Vanderpump however tells news “Scheana approaches me, from what I recall, saying there had been words between her and Brandi. I believe the cameras barely caught it and a subtitle was put up on screen to explain. Nobody at SUR had a clue that there was any connection or knew that several years ago there had been a relationship with Brandi’s ex-husband, whom I had never heard of.”
Vanderpump claims she only knew Scheana as an actress. But Scheana was much the subject of tabloid news reports from 2009 to 2011, far before this Sur scene was filmed, and concerning other men besides Eddie.
In roughly 2010, the Star claimed that Scheana was dating John Mayer. “Scheana was shocked and thrilled when John asked her out. She always thought he was hot, and said yes right away, writing down her cell number on a napkin. They flirted the whole time, and he told her she was cute. There is always food and beer around. Scheana is having loads of fun there; it’s like spring break!”
The episode at issue aired on January 16, 2012. LALATE can report at the time that viewers were searching for news stories online about “Scheana” and “Eddie” as that episode aired and landed on an old LALATE story about Scheana, John Mayer and Eddie. That prompted LALATE to recognize that Sur’s Scheana Marie from those old tv broadcasts as well. In fact, Glanville said the same on camera. “I saw her on TV [news] crying about losing her boyfriend, who is my husband, to Leann [Rimes].” But Lisa and her two staffs never saw that either.
