Jason Oppenheim Explains Why His Split From Chrishell Stause Wasn’t Shown On Selling Sunset

Everyone knew the fate of Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim’s relationship going in to Season 5 of Selling Sunset. To be fair, I think we all knew how that one was going to end, even without the endless spoilers. Either way, fans who binged the most recent season on Netflix have officially watched the rise and fall of this confusing love affair.

Just before the 2021 holiday season Chrishell and Jason both took to Instagram to announce their split. Despite claiming to have been “best friends” prior to their romantic relationship, this couple split over their discovered differences on wanting children. At the time Chrishell wrote, “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.”

Chrishell added, “Although my initial reaction to a private situation was to not speak on it, sometimes it’s easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life.” In the end, most of this story was shared during Season 5 of Selling Sunset. Fans weren’t shown the break up conversation between Jason and Chrishell. Instead, we saw Chrishell pouring her heart out to a less-than comforting Emma Hernan.

In an interview with Us WeeklyJason explained why the split wasn’t caught on camera. He said, “It was an extremely difficult time and it was, I think, a conscious decision that we were not filmed together.” He added, “I wasn’t comfortable. I mean, it was a very difficult time.”

“I’m still working through everything, you know, the emotions and the feelings even months later. I think it’s gonna be a longer process than I anticipated. … I’m doing my best, but it is a bit raw still. And I think rewatching that last episode has, you know, made things even more difficult.”

During the Season 5 reunion taping Jason was seated all the way across the room from Chrishell. At one point Chrishell revealed that she has a new love interest from Australia. Jason and Brett Oppenheim shared inaudible whispers when Chrishell announced the the news of her new parter.

There is little to no gossip about what Season 6 of Selling Sunset will feature. Maybe Chrishell will finally find her person to start a family with?
