Chrishell Stause has been dating boss Jason Oppenheim for longer than anyone realised, admitting to keeping their romance a secret for two months before going public.
Guys, what gives!?
The Selling Sunset co-stars confirmed last month they are dating, and the real estate agent, 40, admitted she and The Oppenheim Group 44, founder kept things private until their friends became ‘savvy to it.’
Chrishell told E! News: ‘It’s just one of those things. You don’t want to share with everybody and get all their opinions before you really know what it is.
‘We really were really private and secretive for as long as we could until we realised the walls were closing in. People were getting a little savvy to it.’
She went on to explain that the couple are now ‘really happy’ to share their love, because they know ‘exactly’ what it is.

Chrishell admitted her co-star and best friend Mary Fitzgerald, who previously dated Jason, was the first to find out about their relationship, admitting: ‘There’s no hiding it from Mary.
‘It was fine that she knew because she could kind of help detract any [attention] because if Mary’s there we’re all just hanging out as a group.’
The star also insisted that there’s no awkwardness between her, Mary and Jason, despite the pair’s romantic past, which was ‘so many years ago.’
In July, Chrishell posted pictures on Instagram of herself and Jason enjoying a holiday with friends, two of which showed her and her new beau cuddling up on a boat.
Several of their co-stars on the hit Netflix show also left comments to congratulate them on their relationship, with Amanza Smith, Mary and her husband Romain, and Jason’s brother Brett Oppenheim among those leaving touching messages.
Chrishell was previously married to Justin Hartley from 2017 until November 2019 when he filed for divorce. She then filed for dissolution of the marriage in December 2019, and their divorce was finalised in February this year.
