I listened to most of it myself. I'm still on the fence if he has some kind of hidden agenda or just wants to stop the channel all together and feels it'd be easier to quit after taking a one year "break". He keeps on talking about the epic vlogs leading up till he quits, but have you seen any of them lately? If that's his idea of epic vlogs no one is even going to know he gone when he quits. However if he does pull something awesome over the next few months (which I know he can do) then the other half of me will think its just a stunt to get more viewers. You know, always leave them wanting more.
I was talking to a friend earlier and somehow they came up. He was pretty convinced that Shay was going to pull some massive things out and make everyone blown away. I wasn't aware that he was in the process of making some list of to-do things. But like I told my friend anything big he has tried in the past hasn't really worked out ...
I am still wondering what happened to giving his Tesla car away. I thought the money from that was going to go to a great cause (forgot exactly what it was again). I'm a little disappointed nothing materialized from that. All I remember saying about it previously is that I was hoping Roman wasn't going to get involved with it. I just didn't want to see something go wrong and ruin what he has going for him right now.
Sexual messages sent by Shay to an adult cam girl Aria Nina were released on Sunday. Also, Shay has just admitted that for the past 3 months, he's been drinking again and acknowledges he has a drinking problem. People are wondering if he is only finally admitting to his drinking problem to take the attention away from the cheating scandal.
This will be the end of the Shaytards. That one year break will be a permanent one. How can you come back from this? Check out Philip DeFranco's latest video for more information (5:40 mark - onward).
Also, check out this DramaAlert video - they speak with Aria Nina (Cam girl) Shay was DM'ing with on Twitter for the last 3 months.
The messages he sent to Aria were extremely graphic and detailed. He has 2 daughters and a son old enough to know exactly what he was talking about. Not only did he mess things up for himself, but what about his brother and sister? They both vlog and now they are under attack as well.
On top of everything, Shay will have to pay Aria (probably millions of dollars) not to release the videos he sent her of him pleasuring himself. What a mess he made for his family - and I'm not buying his "I've been drinking again and I'm an alcoholic" defense. I believe he has a drinking problem, but that doesn't make a person almost cheat on his wife and send naked videos to some porn cam chick.
Yeah I find it oddly convenient that he has been drinking for exactly 3 months (which is the same amount of time he has been talking to this other girl). I think what has people really mad is all he has said since this has come to light has been all 'feel sorry for me, I have a drinking problem'. He never mentioned or apologized for what he did - didn't even bring it up once.
Now some people are talking about "fair is fair" since Colette cheated on him with his brother. This was big news when it came out but was silenced quickly with most links now leading to "page no longer exists". There's still a link around shows a picture of his brother on the left, Daxton in the middle and Shay on the right. It's sadly kind of obvious Daxton looks nothing like Shay and matches his brother perfectly.
Anyways all I'm saying is what Shay did is wrong, but there's a lot more that has gone on in that family than (I think) most people realize.
I heard about Colette cheating on Shay, but never heard it was with his brother. That would explain why Daxton looks nothing like the other kids. However, that was just speculation and really can't be proved - unlike this latest incident with Shay, which has been be proven.
I just noticed Shay has disabled comments on all his videos. I guess it was getting really bad. Still nothing from either of them on Twitter. Also, I'm assuming Valentines Day wasn't much fun at the Butler's house this year ...
Shay's brother Casey is the only one brave enough to post a vlog today. Still nothing from his other brother & sister.
I'm sure they are going on their 1 year break now. The million dollar question now is if they will ever come back. The real victims here are Shay's kids. Imagine what they are going through in school over this. I doubt he will ever vlog again considering what he has done and I can't see after a year off bringing his kids back into the hate / criticism.
Oh yeah, those school kids will have full access to Shay's tweets to Aria (it's all over the internet now). You better believe they are hearing all about it. I'm wondering if Shay pulled the kids out of school until this blows over?
I'm not sure if he would pull the kids out of school, but it has to be super awkward for them - especially with how graphically detailed Shay was with Aria. How do you explain that to your kids?
I just finished watching the CTFxC vlog and noticed Shay & Collette replied to Charles & Allie's wedding invite with "wouldn't miss it for the world" - so it appears they will be at the wedding. That should make things very interesting!
My first thought was maybe Shay & Colette sent that card back before all this drama started. However after watching the vlog, Allie was showing 2 piles (yes and no) and this was in the "Yes" pile. One would assume Allie wouldn't keep it in the yes pile unless she confirmed they were still coming to the wedding.
Haha dam nice find! This will probably be their first "public" appearance since he was messing around with that girl. I'm sure Shay will ask to be kept out of people's vlogs though so I wouldn't expect much of them in the wedding footage.
I hope we get to see (and maybe even hear) from Colette .. I'd really like to see how she is handling the whole situation. It's really weird to see no videos, and both twitter and Instagram accounts inactive for so long.
There will be a lot of YouTubers at the wedding vlogging, it will be almost impossible for Shay & Colette not to be on camera at some point. You better believe if they show up, lots of eyes will be on them.
