Chrishell was ready to meet new people after her shocking divorce, and Heather helped her with that. In season 4, she set her up with Tarek El Moussa’s friend, Robert Drenk. They met at a yacht party, but it wasn’t a love connection.

Chrishell wanted to dance with the other cast members, and he wanted her to sit by him so he picked her up and moved her. By the time the episode aired, the news of her dating Jason was released, and Robert had something to say about it.

“In your defense, would you say the real reason the date went sideways from the second I showed up was because your boyfriend Jason was right there? I guess hiding your man from the man that came to a blind date makes for lots of cringe,” he tweeted, according to Us Weekly.

“Oh hi Robert!” she replied. “Jason was not my boyfriend here. In fact that step came much later. But if thinking that makes you feel better about your behavior, I get it.”

“New Blood” showed everyone in the office talking to Chrishell about her new relationship with Jason. Heather asked her how it all started.

“Actually, you play a part in it,” Chrishell told her. “You don’t even know it yet.” She later added, “So the day that he sat me down and got nervous and told me that he had real feelings. It was the night of your engagement party.”

Heather was surprised by this. “He’s like, ‘Can I talk to you?’ ‘Yeah,’” Chrishell said. She said the thought hadn’t crossed her mind that he might be into her because he talks about being a lifelong bachelor. However, he started to change his tune.

“But I feel like I didn’t think about it until he actually kissed me,” she said. “And then I was like, ‘Oh.’” Maya Vander asked how the kiss was and Chrishell didn’t answer.
