Shake continues to be a walking red flag.
If you’ve been watching Netflix’s Love Is Blind Season 2, you’re probably waiting with bated breath for the reunion episode (dropping March 4).
Because the show already aired, though, we do know who said “yes” on their wedding day(s) and who said “no” to marriage. 🚨 Spoilers ahead! 🚨
SO MUCH has gone down on social media since the marriage episode, though. Let’s catch up!
On Instagram, Deepti stood up for bestie Danielle Ruhl, calling out fans for belittling the mental health challenges she opened up about on-camera. “I wanted to take a moment for all of you to meet @dnellruhl through my eyes,” Deepti wrote, noting that she and Danielle have “become best friends” since Love Is Blind finished filming.
While technically not a social media development, Deeps recently appeared on Nick Viall’s podcast The Viall Files and talked about her reaction to the way Shake spoke about her on the show. “I was so disappointed,” she said. “Honestly, there are no words. And I’m pretty sure he got a good edit.” She added, “Oh, I heard from castmates that he said way worse.”
Deepti’s siblings also posted a joint statement criticizing Shake: “‘Shake,’ bruh, you’re a loser,” Sunny Vempati and his partner Hina Merchant Vempati wrote on Instagram. “You minimized my sister’s life by making some awful and cringeworthy comments about her. You made these statements knowing your own mom would one day watch it; my parents and my entire family had to sit through you talking behind my sister’s back about insecurities she fought her entire life.”
Danielle, meanwhile, has posted about how she felt misrepresented on the show. “How I was represented on TV is not an accurate representation of who I am as a person,” she wrote on Instagram, adding that viewers’ negative responses are “not only damaging to myself and my family, but to anyone else who have had similar experiences.”
And over on the Love Is Blind Instagram account, Shake and Kyle are apparently beefing in the comments. Reacting to an image of himself at the reunion, Kyle wrote about himself, “Just me enjoying the train wreck😜.” To which Shake replied, “Translation: you’re a little bihh.”
In another comment, Shake wrote: “Imma warn you. I KEEPS IT REAL AT THIS REUNION.” Shake also accuses Kyle of being “a serial cheater” on his Instagram Story. “Hey @KyleAbrams10. You’re a serial cheater and everyone in Chicago knows it,” he wrote. “Hope your 6 pack makes up for your lack of loyalty.”
Elsewhere, some fans are convinced that Deepti and Sal are dating after seeing a selfie with the two wearing matching white blazers in Las Vegas. Deepti captioned “unShakeable Vibes” — a not-subtle dig at Shake.
And Shaina… Shaina, Shaina, Shaina. After splitting with Kyle and attempting to blow up Natalie and Shayne’s relationship, Shaina says she’s now in a “pretty serious” relationship. In an interview on The Viall Files, Shaina said, “I’m actually in a relationship. It’s pretty serious. He’s been great throughout the whole situation. I’m happy.”
As for Shayne, he recently posted a sweet note / apology to Natalie on Instagram. “This journey with you will be something I’ll never forget. It was easily the best time of my life, and I would do it all over again knowing I get to spend more time with you. As a man watching our story over again, I’m remorseful for my actions, and all I can do is learn from them to be a better man. I’m proud of being vulnerable and being as genuine as possible. I don’t know what’s next for us, but I do know that I will never stop loving you.”
“To put some other rumors to rest,” he added, “Shaina and I are cordial and have hung out in group gatherings with the cast (with Natalie), but we have never had nor will ever have a romantic relationship. I wish her all the best.”
In a note to Shayne, Natalie wrote on Instagram: “I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this. We may have had our ups and downs, but you have always protected me and had my back. And thank you for loving me for ME, and always encouraging me to embrace and love my flaws. When I told you I was self conscious about my deep stretch marks, you told me every day after you loved them and they were beautiful. Even if I did this experiment a thousand times knowing the outcome, I would have always chosen you.”
Aaaand back to Shake. On his Instagram Story, Shake recently wrote about being “incapable of speaking the truth” and accused “others” of “propagating lies to protect their image.”
Shake has also doubled down on his actions on the show. In an Instagram Video, he said: “I mentioned earlier that there are certainly things that I want to work on for myself and get better at, but one thing I don’t feel inclined to do is pretend I’m sad or sorry about certain things…Certain things that are out of my control, certain things that I can’t necessarily even speak about. I’m just not going to do that.”
