Chrishell Stause makes a dig at ex Justin Hartley while discussing Jason Oppenheim


She enjoyed a fleeting romance with her boss Jason Oppenheim during the latest series of Selling Sunset, before breaking it off due to his reluctance to have children.

And Chrishell Stause admitted her relationship with the real estate broker is the first time she had ‘felt fully like herself’ with another person, making an unsubtle jibe at her ex-husband and This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, who she split from in 2019.

The actress, 40, made the admission in the first episode of the new series, before her sister Shonda admitted she felt that Justin was ‘disrespectful’ to her during their marriage and she would sometimes ‘cover’ for him.

During a chat with her friend and colleague Mary Fitzgerald while away in Greece on a group trip, Chrishell is seen discussing her new relationship.

While sipping on cocktails with their legs dangling in the pool, Chrishell says: I feel like it’s the first time I’ve really been my full self and I don’t have to change anything.

‘It’s kind of nice to just kind of be ourselves instead of hiding everything. We just wanted to figure out what it was before we opened it up to everyone else’s opinions on it.

‘It’s like backwards of any relationship I’ve ever been in. I’ve just been myself because of the way it started and it was nothing romantic. We didn’t see each other that way for a long time.’

Chrishell touched on a time when she hired a private chef to cook a meal and ushered him away before her date arrive. Suggesting she would rely on false pretences before enjoying an honest relationship with Jason.

The reality personality did not mention the name of the person she hired a private chef for.

Chrishell then continued: ‘You know, he had a type before, so did I. I loved… I had a height thing, I’ll be honest! I didn’t even see him like that.

‘It’s so funny, it’s so opposite of what I would’ve imagined. Just like the ultimate respect from both sides for each other, that is just something I’ve never had before,’ she adds as Mary nods beside her.’

Chrishell and Justin’s split aired during series three and the star claimed she was ‘blindsided’ when her then-husband text to say he had filed for divorce.

Bookending the series with another chat about her ex-husband, Chrishell once again threw shade at the actor during a chat with her sisters on the series finale.

Shonda, who was also joined by another of their sisters Sabrina, admitted: ‘I feel like with your last relationship, there was some criticism. A lot of what you did, I don’t think that he took you seriously. 

‘A lot of your jobs, he acted like they were not real jobs. And this was your life. This was your job. You worked so hard for it.’ 

Chrishell said: 'It's like backwards of any relationship I've ever been in. I've just been myself because of the way it started and it was nothing romantic. We didn't see each other that way for a long time'

Sabrina added: ‘There are just some instances in the past where it felt like you were covering for your partner at the time. 

‘Maybe they were doing something that was a little disrespectful and you were, like, standing up for them and trying to cover for them and it was just so sad that you felt like you had to kind of pretend to be something else.’

Chrishell agreed with her sisters, and added: ‘I don’t even, like, think about this anymore. But the second that you, like, my memory hits of what you’re talking about, I’m like, ‘Who was I?’ I don’t even know who that was.’

‘And I really do respect and value your opinions. You know, I feel like I’m in a place where I’m so much different and I’m so much more grown than I was and I’m a fully realized person at this point. 

‘Not a version of what I think somebody wants me to be. 

Since their divorce, Justin went public with and later married Sofia Pernas, 32, in March 2021. Chrishell’s relationship with Jason came to an end in December 2021.

Speaking to The Mirror, Mary said that Chrishell and Jason’s break-up ‘wasn’t fun’ but the pair still care about each other.

‘I mean there were times during that initial period when they first broke up, it wasn’t fun to have to say, ‘okay are we gonna have this group or this group’, but they needed space for that short period of time. But they’re mature, they worked it out and everything’s fine.’
