Chrishell Stause Says Ex Justin Hartley Told Her About Divorce Over Text

Season 3 of Netflix’s hit reality show, Selling Sunset, is finally here, along with all the drama that comes with L.A.’s luxury realtors for the elite: the staff at the Oppenheim Group.

From Heather Rae Young’s budding relationship with HGTV’s Tarek El Moussa to Christine Quinn’s over-the-top antics (which include a million dollar wedding), we are ready to sit back and enjoy the show. But perhaps the biggest storyline of the season belongs to Chrishell Stause, the actress and real estate agent whose very public divorce with This Is Us’s Justin Hartley is set to play out over a series of episodes.

“I found out because he texted me that we were filed,” Stause says on the series of her divorce. “Forty-five minutes later, the world knew.”

Later during the series, she adds, “Like how could you do it this way? And the sadness, like, I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to now? It’s such a roller-coaster.”

Below, we take a look back at the former couple’s relationship and all that was revealed during this season of Selling Sunset.

The two former soap opera stars—Stause was on Days of Our Lives, while Hartley starred in The Young and the Restless—were introduced through a mutual friend in 2013. “We met up at a concert and talked all night,” Hartley told People. “I drove her home and called the next day. We haven’t been apart since. I knew right away [and] was like, ‘Oh boy, here we go.’ ”

They were married four years later in a rustic Malibu ceremony. “The wedding exceeded anything I could have ever imagined,” Stause said at the time. “They don’t make them any better than Justin, and I could not be more thrilled to officially be Mrs. Hartley!”


November 14, 2019: Stause and Hartley make their last public appearance as a couple.

November 22, 2019: Hartley files for divorce, allegedly leaving Stause “reeling.”

Just eight days later, Hartley filed for divorce from Stause, citing irreconcilable differences. It was his second marriage, and the luxury realtor’s first. The This Is Us actor also noted that their date of separation was July 8, 2019. However, according to ET, two weeks later Stause responded to his petition for divorce and also cited irreconcilable differences. However, she named their date of separation as November 22.

A source told People:

“In many ways, they’re somewhat fundamentally incompatible. Chrishell is really ready to just settle down and be a wife and stay-at-home mom and was hoping to start a family relatively soon. Justin wants that but also doesn’t think it has to happen in the near future and is at a point in his career where he wants to really be able to explore all the options that are coming his way. He’s reached a new level of fame thanks to the show and he doesn’t want to close many doors right now, and that’s not the path Chrishell is looking to take. She thought babies would happen soon after they got married, but it just hasn’t worked out.”

The magazine later reported that a source said Stause was “reeling.” They continued, “Yes, they’d had some problems, but she certainly never thought he would just go and suddenly file for divorce, and not even try to save things. He’s reached a new level of fame thanks to the show and he doesn’t want to close many doors right now, and that’s not necessarily the path Chrishell is looking to take. She thought babies would happen soon after they got married, but it just hasn’t worked out.”


July 2020: Stause addresses comments made by co-star Christine Quinn.

Quinn—Stause’s of-an-on rival on the show—told Page Six in July, “We all just thought maybe they were having communication problems for a while. “We heard that they were in therapy, so obviously there were some issues going on with them.”

When speaking about Hartley, Quinn continued, “I hung out with him many times and he was an absolute doll. He was an absolute sweetheart, especially to Davina and I, and I thought that was really interesting considering the dynamic between Chrishell and I. He has been nothing but nice and supportive to us.”

However, Stause was not impressed with Quinn’s comment. In reaction, she took to Twitter to say that her co-star “knows absolutely nothing about the situation and is obviously desperate to gain attention by doing so. Anything from her is either a complete lie or total conjecture on her part.”

August 2020: Stause opens up about the divorce on Selling Sunset.

After largely keeping quiet about the split for months, we finally hear Stause’s side of the story during season 3 of Selling Sunset. We first see the rest of the cast receive the breaking divorce news while at the office at the end of episode 5.

From there throughout the rest of the season we see the actress and real estate agent grapple with the estrangement. She opens up to co-stars and friend Mary Fitzgerald and Amanza Smith, stays at the Beverly Hills Hotel before moving into a home of her own, and eventually leaves town to spend time with her sister. And as we mentioned earlier, Stause confessed that the morning after a fight between she and Hartley, he blindsided her with a text that he filed for divorce. It was just minutes before the news made headlines.

As for the cause of the divorce, Stause confessed that she had minimal communication with Hartley after he filed, and was in search of answers. However, she alluded to Hartley’s growing fame as a possible reason for the split.

“I just feel like it was just me fighting for something that was a lost cause because he didn’t care enough to sit me down and tell me,” she said on the show. “I get it, like that’s a lot to change in your life, all that money and fame and all that stuff, but it shouldn’t change how you treat people…I would have done anything for him.”

The actress also tearfully admitted that she wrote a goodbye letter to Hartley’s 16-year-old daughter Isabella. In May, it was reported the This Is Us actor is dating his former Young and the Restless co-star Sofia Pernas.

“When I think of marriage, I think you work on things with people. They’re not perfect, no one is. You work on it. You talk about it,” Stause said on the show. “You don’t go out looking for greener grass. Sometimes you have to water the grass that you have, and that’s what marriage is. Sometimes it can be hard, but I mean, I don’t think it should be more hard than easy at all. That’s why I’m so confused because I didn’t feel like that balance was off. I just feel stupid.”

But with Selling Sunset being filmed this past winter, a few things have happened since. Unfortunately, Stause revealed her mother died of cancer in July, but it seems that she’s doing her best to move forward and remain positive:”There is always a reason to smile. You just have to find it,” she wrote in a recent Instagram caption.
