Netflix's Selling Sunset is not only a welcome gift for viewers obsessed with the real estate reality show but it's also given fans an inside scoop into star Chrishell Stause's love life. Indeed, it's not just glamorous properties and high price tags. The personal lives of cast members are a huge part of the show, and fans have learned quite a lot about Chrishell's romantic situations through it all.
During a particularly revealing moment in the show's third season, the realtor shared that she was completely "blindsided" when her then-husband, This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, filed for divorce. "I found out because he text[ed] me that we were filed," she said tearfully in the series. "Forty-five minutes later, the world knew."
It took time, but Chrishell eventually appeared to move on from that painful moment. She started dating her Dancing With the Stars co-star, Keo Motsepe, and the two seemed very happy together. Unfortunately, though, the couple called it quits. ... and judging from Chrishell's Instagram rant about the breakup at the time, they definitely didn't end on good terms by any means.
Now, it seems like Chrishell has a new man in her life, but who is he? Here's what we know so far.
Chrishell Stause just announced that she is dating her boss, Jason Oppenheim.
Taking to Instagram to share a series of PDA-filled images from a recent trip to Capri, Italy, Chrishell effectively confirmed that she and her boss, famed realtor Jason Oppenheim, are now romantically involved with one another.
At the end of the photo series, Jason can be seen lovingly embracing Chrishell and even giving her a kiss on the neck. He took to the comments under the post to share a heart emoji, further solidifying their new relationship.
It isn't only Chrishell and Jason who are happy with this new relationship, however. Jason's twin brother, Brett Oppenheim, commented under the post, "Love you Chrishell. Thank you for making my brother happy."
Chrishell's costar, Romain Bonnett, joked that the relationship confirmation will finally show fans that there is no chance for a reunion between Jason and Mary Fitzgerald, who were previously an item.
"So happy for you guys!" he wrote. "Finally people will stop with Jason and Mary hopefully."
What was Chrishell's dating life like prior to this reveal? She and Keo Motsepe were an item for a few months.
After a shocking divorce from Justin, Chrishell was enjoying her single-life status. However, back in December of 2020, Entertainment Tonight reported that Chrishell started dating Keo officially. The two met while filming Season 29 of DWTS — that season, Chrishell danced with Gleb Savchenko and Keo danced with Anne Heche. According to ET's source, "Keo and Gleb [Savchenko] are best friends. ... Chrishell and Keo are both awesome and felt like, 'I'm single, you're single. Let's try this.'"
The couple didn't shy away from sharing public displays of affection or cute pics of the two of them together on social media. Judging by their cute posts on Instagram (some of which have now been deleted), Keo and Chrishell were quite happy together. However, things took a turn for the worse rather quickly.
Right after Chrishell and Keo called it quits, the former decided to call her ex a liar.
Less than three months after going public with their relationship, Chrishell and Keo broke up in February of 2021. Initially, it was reported that the couple had come to a mutual decision to end their relationship and that things between Chrishell and Keo were friendly and amicable.
However, People then reported that a source had said: "Keo is heartbroken. He enjoyed his time with Chrishell and was 100 percent in it. He's had a tough time with his mom's passing, but he really wanted to make his relationship with Chrishell last." Apparently, Chrishell took issue with that.
She posted a series of Instagram stories reacting to the reports of her and Keo's breakup. "TRULY wanted to keep this drama-free, but playing the victim and bringing your mom into it is a step too far for me," she said in response to the above quote. But she didn't stop there.
"Taking the high road is overrated sometimes!!" she said in another story. "I was also 100 percent in it as well, until revelations told to me recently have made me question if you could even order a coffee without the lying."
Chrishell's third and final story included a screenshot of an article entitled, "Liar, Liar: How to Break Free From Habitual Lying" and was accompanied by the Beyoncé track "Beautiful Liar." Not exactly subtle.
She doesn't only have problems with Keo, however. Justin was apparently "irritated" by her actions too.
Despite being long removed from the situation, there's still some drama surrounding Chrishell's divorce. Apparently, Justin shared that he was "irritated" by how his ex-wife had been dishing about their personal life on Selling Sunset. According to Us Weekly, Justin "has not watched the episodes but has been alerted to what is said" regarding how Chrishell took the breakup.
"He's irritated that she's airing their private information publicly and knows there is more to the story that is being told," the source who spoke to Us Weekly said at the time. "His close friends and family know what really happened, as does Chrishell, so ultimately it's her choice of what is put out there."
Chrishell said on-air that her marriage ended in a "crazy way" and confessed to still being confused about what went wrong. "I know people are saying we were only married two years, but it's like, we were together for six years," she said. "In a fight, that's his go-to, you know? Like, 'I'm out, I'm out.' I hate that kind of impulsive stuff, but I always just thought, you know, that's just an issue that we work through it."
In another confessional on the series, Chrishell claimed that "outer elements have reared their ugly head and inserted themselves into our relationship," which many fans took as a reference to Justin's newfound public fame with This Is Us.
If Chrishell seemed unusually shaken in Season 3 of Selling Sunset, that's because news of her divorce broke when she was barely a month into filming the season. "This is still new for me trying to adjust to such an uncomfortable thing but unfortunately yes, the cameras were there," she told Entertainment Tonight following the premiere of Season 2.
"It's not a comfortable thing to live in front of everyone. If I'm being 100 percent honest with you, it's friggin' awkward," Chrishell continued. "They were there and some of it is going to be shown and I'm dreading that."
Seasons 1 through 3 of Selling Sunset are now streaming on Netflix.
