‘Selling Sunset’: Chrishell Stause Is Dating 1 of Her ‘DWTS’ Costars
Chrishell Stause’s marital problems were front and center on season 3 of Selling Sunset. She and her ex-husband This Is Us star Justin Hartley’s abrupt divorce shocked fans and caused Stause a lot of strife. When she began competing on Dancing with the Stars, fans hoped that Stause would find a new love connection. And now, those wishes have come true.
Chrishell Stause’s divorce
When fans first met Stause on Selling Sunset, she was married to Hartley. But by season 3, things changed drastically.
“He texted me that we were filed,” she told her co-star Mary Fitzgerald on the show. “Forty-five minutes later, the world knew.”
At first, Stause didn’t realize that Hartley was being serious about wanting a divorce.
“I talked to him right after because I thought that must be a joke,” she said. “But that was kind of the end of the communication.
“When I found out, I was minutes before leaving the house for work so I immediately just grabbed a few things and I just got out of there as fast as I could,” she said on the show. “I don’t think I really knew where I was going or what I was going to do, but I just had to leave.”
The cast of Selling Sunset put their problems aside and rallied around Stause as she struggled to come to terms with the split.
“I was with her in her new place for the first day,” her co-star Amanza Smith told Us Weekly. “It took a giant bottle of wine and lots of tissues and [I] was like, ‘I don’t know, but I’m here.”
Chrishell on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Stause was nervous to join Dancing with the Stars but ultimately, she thought that the experience would be good for her.
“I’m hoping this will be a new chapter, something positive,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “An experience I can kinda throw myself into and just kind of learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. I have no dance experience, so it’s going to at least be a laugh for all of us.”
Stause was paired with Gleb Savchenko. Rumors of the two becoming romantic started after Savchenko’s wife, Elena Samodanova, announced via Instagram that they were ending their 14-year marriage.
In an interview with People, Samodanova revealed that Savchenko had been receiving expensive gifts from another woman. She said that she could no longer trust her husband and therefore was ending the marriage.
Both Stause and Savchenko maintained that their relationship was strictly platonic.
Who is Chrishell Stause dating?
Though Stause was part of the seventh couple to be eliminated from the show, something good did come out of the experience for her. Last night, she and dancing pro Keo Motsepe went public with their relationship via Instagram.
Motsepe posted a picture of him and Stause with a heart emoji as the caption. He also posted a short video of him and Stause to his Story with the caption, “I will always make you smile.”
“Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe are officially dating,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “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.’”
