Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim have broken up — five months after going public with their HR violation — and experts are wondering: Will the market ever recover? Bossman Jason Oppenheim confirmed the break-up in a statement made to his Instagram stories on Tuesday: “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 family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another. 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.”
Chrishell Stause made a statement on her Instagram later the same evening (as a main post), echoing similar sentiments to Oppenheim. On their differing views on family, Stause said, “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. Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes.” Hopefully like the Fast and Furious films, this upcoming season will be all about family.
The break-up was speculated earlier in the day when multiple sources told People that the couple recently ended their romantic relationship. Representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Vulture. The Selling Sunset co-stars announced that they upgraded their broker-Realtor relationship in July while mixing business with pleasure on a trip to Italy. Later, Strause said they kept it private for a couple of months beforehand. The relationship was only teased in season four of Selling Sunset, which dropped in November, but is expected to be part of the non-real-estate drama of season five. And since they just wrapped on December 19 (per Mary Fitzgerald’s Instagram), this plot line is likely gonna carry us right us into Selling O.C., the spinoff based on the Oppenheim Group’s Orange County expansion. Jason Oppenheim is set to star in the new series, which follows an entirely new set of agents, planned for 2022. Perhaps the biggest short of all was the one played on our hearts.
