Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim broke up

Stause and Oppenheim started dating and became public with their relationship when the cast went to Italy together in the summer. Fans have been excited to learn more about their relationship on the show.

But they surprisingly revealed they broke up. “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,” read part of Stause’s statement on Instagram

“Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes,” it continued. “All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.”

Oppenheim posted his own statement about their breakup on Instagram. “She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life,” read part of the statement. “While we have different wants regarding family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another.” 

Emma Hernan reveals how they’re handing her breakup 

The newer cast member gave an update on the former couple. She told Us Weekly that other people could learn from them.

“If everybody in the entire world could follow how they handle a breakup, I think the world would be a better place,” she said. “They handled it very well and they communicated very well with each other. … I mean they’re literally best friends, and they’ve remained really close throughout even the breakup, which is nice.”

Hernan said she felt “sad” for them, but they’re good friends. She said fans will see how their relationship plays out in the next season of Selling Sunset.

This isn’t Oppenheim’s first breakup with a cast member
