We didn’t see this one coming – real estate agent Chrishell Stause, the star of the hit Netflix reality series Selling Sunset is dating her boss Jason Oppenheim! She made it official in a series of pictures posted on Instagram of the cast vacationing in Capri, Italy with the caption “The JLo effect,” referring to Jennifer Lopez’s flame with ex-fiancée and long time pal – Ben Affleck.
If you watched Selling Sunset, you’d know that Chrishell Stause has had a tumultuous relationship over the past two years. She was blindsided from a divorce from husband Justin Hartley after six years together and had a short-lived relationship with pro dancer Keo Motsepe that did not end on good terms.
Jason on the other hand, was shown to be a rich bachelor loving his single life. He previously dated one of his other employees on the show – Mary Fitzgerald, a close friend of Chrishell’s as well.
Jason and Chrishell were friendly on the show, but there never seemed to be anything romantic between them. Oppenhiem told PEOPLE, “Chrishell and I became close friends and it has developed into an amazing relationship.” He continued, “I care about her deeply and we are very happy together.”
So how did the cast react to their co-worker’s unexpected pairing?

As for the rest of the Selling Sunset cast? It looks like Christine, Davina, and Heather may still have bad blood with Chrishell or perhaps Christine, namely, is still blocked from Chrishell’s social media. Either way, we just know the next season is going to be a juicy one!
