Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause says it's 'painful' to watch ex-husband Justin Hartley date again
DANCING With The Stars contestant Chrishell Stause admits being "heartbroken" watching former husband Justin Hartley move on with her ex-friend Sofia Pernas.
The 39-year-old, who is competing in the latest season of Dancing With The Stars, spoke of her pain at the split from This Is Us actor.
The Selling Sunset star told People magazine: “I feel like anybody would be heartbroken to see how quickly or easily you are replaced; of course that’s going to sting."
On the hit Netflix series, Selling Sunset, the realtor was seen on having her heart broken when Justin filed for divorce and ended their marriage over text message.
Justin, 43, is now dating his former The Young and the Restless co-star Sofia Pernas, 31.
The Sun exclusively reported that Chrishell and Sofia were close friends for years after working together on the drama series.
The former actress said that she dropped her Hartley surname to give herself a clean break.
She said: "I'm not trying to be somewhere I'm not wanted."
Almost a year after their split, Chrishell said it's time for her to get back in the dating game.
She told the site: “It’s been almost a year, so I'm excited to get back out there. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I think it can still happen.
"It’s 2020, maybe you could meet your person through an Instagram DM. I don’t know. Crazier things have happened!"
Despite the heartbreak, Chrishell said this isn't the first time she had to "start over."
The star said it's not the first setback she's suffered.
She explained: “I’ve had to start over so many times in my life.
"I always know how to look at the bright side because there’s been a lot of dark.”
In July 2020, Chrishell suffered further heartache when her mother, Ranae died of lung cancer.
Herr father, Jeff, had succumbed to the same disease in April 2019.
Chrishell said: “It’s almost an ungrievable loss. The other loss [her divorce], you can slowly recover and get over. This one just feels like I’m adapting, as opposed to getting over it.”
The star, who is partnered with Gleb Savchenko on season 29 of DWTS, said she's finding the positive after a tough year.
"I'm very happy, I'm in such a great place and I'm so grateful for everything," she told them.
It's taken some work (and therapy) to get there, but, she adds: "I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be."
