Selling Sunset season four has dropped on Netflix, but the drama off-camera is even better. Fans of the show knew to expect a blossoming romantic relationship between Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause before the season’s episodes even dropped. Personally, I was dissecting any and all interactions between these two on screen. Unfortunately, most of their relationship seems to be saved for the pending fifth season.
Though season five of Selling Sunset promises to show pieces of Chrishell and Jason’s romance, what is it all for? In case you somehow missed it, these two have already split. Cause of relationship death? It sounds like this pair couldn’t reach a compromise on having children. In his announcement of the split Jason was very complimentary of Chrishell.
He shared, “While Chrishell and I are no longer together, we remain best friends and we will always love and support one another. She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life.” Remind me how these two were best friends but never discussed whether they wanted to have kids before dating?
The way Jason manages to remain “best friends” with his ex-girlfriends/employees is…fascinating. In a recent interview with Us Weekly Jason was discussing the work style of the Oppenheim women. He was once again giving heavy accolades to Chrishell, Mary Fitzgerald (another ex- of Jason’s), and Emma Hernan.
“I mean, Mary works really hard, sometimes, like, too hard on small deals,” Jason said, (backhandedly). “I’m like, ‘Take it easy.’ Chrishell works really hard. Yeah, I’d say Mary, Chrishell and Emma. But I mean, I can’t rank the full [team]. … I’m not surprised how well [Emma] did [as a show newcomer], but I’m very happy with how she did on camera [and] off camera. I mean, she’s a very impressive woman.”
Jason explained that there are male agents within the Oppenheim group too. “There are more female agents in the office than male agents, but there are male agents,” Jason revealed. “And then in the Orange County office, it’s probably, like, 50/50. So, I think you’ll see more of a gender mix in Orange County.”
Netflix announced in late November that a new Selling Sunset spin-off centered in Orange County has begun filming. The show will follow Jason as he expands the Oppenheim group by opening a second office in Newport Beach.
