The pair went Instagram official over the summer, but called relationship off just a few months later, after filming for Selling Sunset season 5 wrapped.
Chrishell and Jason both posted their own statements on Instagram about the break-up.
It’s heartbreaking to watch Netflix’s Selling Sunset season three. While it's the show’s juiciest season yet, one of the season’s biggest plot lines is the divorce of cast member Chrishell Stause from her husband, Justin Hartley (you may know him from the NBC show This Is Us.) In real life, Justin filed for divorce from Chrishell in November 2019, citing “irreconcilable differences,” after getting married in October 2017.
And in the show, Chrishell details how she was blindsided after Justin filed for divorce, pointing out that he let her know that he had filed via text. Season three follows Chrishell as she starts fresh without Justin and tries to come to terms with what, exactly, happened to her.
Since then, Justin has moved on and is now married to his former co-star Sofia Pernas, according to People.
As for Chrishell, she's now recently single after splitting from her fellow Selling Sunset star, Jason Oppenheim (one half of the dynamic real estate duo featured in the show). The pair first went public with their relationship in late July, after posting some very cuddly pics on Instagram.
But fans who binged season 4 wondered why the duo's brief romance wasn't shown. In a new interview, Jason revealed that it was Chrishell's idea to keep their budding relationship on the DL.
Here’s what’s happening in Chrishell’s love life right now, and what’s been going on until this point.
So, who is Chrishell dating now?
Chrishell is currently living the single life. As for why she and Jason broke up, the pair posted their own statements on Instagram.
"Jason was and is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward," Chrishell wrote. "Although my initial reaction to a private situation was to not speak on it, sometimes it's easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life," she added.
"And thank you Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me even when it hurts," she finished.
Jason's own post read: "While Chrishell and I are no longer together, we remain best friends and we will always love and support one another. She was the most amazing girlfriend I've ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life."
"While we have different wants regarding a family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another," he continued. "Chrishell is an exceptional human being and loving her and having her in my life is one of the best things that has ever happened to me."
Will their relationship be featured on Selling Sunset?
Chrishell and Jason were adamant about keeping their relationship under wraps, at first. “I think when [a relationship is] public, it puts a lot of just added pressures and publicity and opinion,” Jason told Us Weekly. “I think it’s nice to kind of start a relationship in the way that normal relationships kind of grow and progress. And that’s just between two people.”
Then, Chrishell decided to take matters into her own hands. “lt felt like we were about to be outed by paparazzi photos,” she told Cosmopolitan UK. “But I didn’t want people to think it was a mistake or they’d ‘caught us’ doing something; I wanted to be able to hold my boyfriend’s hand at dinner.”
Previously, Chrishell and DWTS pro Keo Motsepe dated for three months.
Dancing With the Stars pro Keo caught Chrishell’s attention last year. They started sharing cuddly photos together in Dec. 2020 and went public with their relationship soon after. Chrishell called their romance the "coolest thing," per People. "I knew from my dance work I wasn't going to win a Mirrorball from the beginning. To have this come from it, I'm just very smitten," she said.
They vacationed as a couple in December and celebrated their first Valentine's Day less than a month before the breakup.
Neither Chrishell nor Keo have spoken publicly about the breakup. "He's had a tough time with his mom's passing, but he really wanted to make his relationship with Chrishell last," the source close to Keo told People.
Before connecting with Keo, Chrishell said she was taking "baby steps" into dating again.
In Sept. 2020, Chrishell told Entertainment Tonight that she was taking "baby steps" with dating. She also noted that she’s had a few people slide into her DMs lately.
"I feel so weird," Chrishell said of getting personal messages on social. "But yes, that has been a nice surprise. There's a few [people you might know], but I'm not going to tell you who."
"I'm completely single and because of COVID, I haven't done much mingling," she explained. But, Chrishell added, "I'm excited to mingle." She hasn’t been giving DMers the cold shoulder, though. Chrishell said she’s responded to a few people "in a polite way," but hasn’t "taken the next step" in going on an actual date.
That’s pretty similar to what she said back in May. During an interview with Access, Chrishell said, "Instagram DMs seem to be a popular thing that I didn't know about...it' s a fun fact that I'm learning now," she said.
However, Chrishell hasn’t confirmed if she is dating anyone, and hinted that she is single during a Q&A series of fan questions when Selling Sunset season three premiered.
She shared a hilarious video to explain how dating is going RN. Chrishell included a clip from that open house when she wandered around waiting for potential buyers to show up with the Jeopardy theme song in the background.
And, Chrishell is preparing to start a family—eventually.
She's freezing her eggs and keeping motherhood in mind for the future. "I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs," Chrishell told People in Sept. 2020. "I’m going to do everything I can to take that power in the situation, and hopefully, that will empower me going forward in the dating world, so there’s not so much pressure."
Chrishell shared hints about moving on in 2020.
Chrishell joked about possible love connections back in July 2020. During an interview with RealiTea With Derek Z, Chrishell said that her dream celebrity date would be with Brad Pitt. "Brad Pitt! And we know he’s single, so there you go. It’s so cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason."
