Chrisell Stause and Justin Hartley’s surprise divorce
Stause’s divorce took her completely by surprise.
“He texted me that we were filed,” she told her costar Mary Fitzgerald on Selling Sunset. “Forty-five minutes later, the world knew.”
At first, Stause couldn’t belive that Hartley was serious.
“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.”
Stause struggled with reliving her divorce as it played out on the Netflix show.
“I obviously really truly love him and it’s unfortunate the way that everything happened and the timing of everything, because I still had a month to go of shooting the show when this all went down,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Hopefully we can get to a place where one day we will look back at this and laugh, I don’t know… hopefully. It’s very unfortunate and relationships are hard.”
