Selling Sunset season 3 dropped on Netflix Friday, Aug. 8, along with all the drama surrounding Chrishell Stause’s divorce from Justin Hartley.
The real estate reality TV series immediately picks up from where it left off in the season 2 ending, with Stause telling friends how she’s coping about the end of her marriage. The Selling Sunset star and the This Is Us actor announced their divorce in November 2019 after two years of marriage and several years of dating.
Nine months since then, Stause dishes her side of the story to co-worker Mary Fitzgerald. In tears, she said that Hartley blindsided her because she found out about the divorce’s filing via a text message from her ex.
“We had a fight that morning over the phone. I never saw him since. We didn’t talk things through. Before we had a chance to figure anything out, he’d filed,” the real estate agent said. “I found out because he texted me…that we were filed. Forty-five minutes later, the world knew.”
Hartley not happy with ex-wife’s revelations
A source from Hartley’s camp said that the actor is “irritated” at his ex-wife because she’s airing private information. The actor is also reportedly miffed that Stause is telling friends that he changed because of the success of This Is Us.
“There is more to the story than is being told. His close friends and family know what really happened, as does Chrishell,” the source said. “Justin is in a good place. [He] wants to just move on.”
Prior to the divorce’s filing, Hartley and Stause were separated on July 8, 2019. However, they still publicly attended events together, including the Emmy Awards months before the official filing of the divorce. Around that time. Selling Sunset also started filming season 3.
Finding new love
Hartley is currently dating actress Sofia Pernas. In May, photos of the new couple kissing each other came out in the press.
Sources said that Hartley and Pernas have been “spending a lot of time at his house.” The two are old friends who met during their days on The Young and The Restless.
Stause, on the other hand, suggested in Selling Sunset season 3 that she’s currently single. However, in an interview on RealiTea With Derek Z, the reality TV star said her celebrity dream date is Brad Pitt.
“We know he’s single, so there you go. It’s so cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason.”
The Selling Sunset star admitted that she’s been getting a lot of Instagram DMs since her divorce. She said that she’s determined to move forward and not be stuck with things from her past.
Selling Sunset seasons 1 to 3 are streaming on Netflix.
