‘Selling Sunset’ Star Chrishell Stause Found Out Justin Hartley Was Divorcing Her By Text And We Want Answers
Season 3 of Selling Sunset dropped on Netflix this morning, and we're already counting down the hours until 5pm when we can grab all the wine and make ourselves comfortable for a weekend bingefest with Mary, Christine and friends.
If you've been watching the new season trailer religiously since it dropped like we have, you'll remember the scene where Christine can be heard saying: "I just got a Google alert from TMZ...Justin Hartley files for divorce."
Well it turns out the This Is Us star is nothing like his hopelessly romantic character Kevin Peterson on the hit NBC show, as during a heart-to-heart with fellow realtor Mary Fitzgerald, Chrishell Stause revealed that her 43-year-old husband told her he had started their divorce proceedings via TEXT.
"I found out because he text me that we were filed. 45 minutes later, the world knew," said the heartbroken star.
"In a fight, that's his go-to. I'm out, I'm out. I hate that kind of impulsive stuff but I always just thought that's an issue that we just work through it. If that's what you wanted there are better ways to go about it.
"My mind is blown that he thinks this is the way to conduct himself."
The pair were introduced by one of Chrishell's Days of Our Lives co-stars and started dating back in 2013. Justin proposed in July 2016 with the couple tying the knot in October 2017 in front of 75 family and friends at Malibu's Calamigos Ranch.
However the course of true love never did run smooth, and on November 23 2019, news broke that Justin had filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Chrishell was apparently blindsided, saying: "I thought we were totally fine. We had an argument that morning [of a charity event] over the phone and I never saw him since. We didn't talk things through.
"Before we had the chance to figure things through, he filed."
She added: "I just can't believe everyone's finding out when I'm finding out. I had literally no time, the people who were in our wedding found out through TMZ. That's so disrespectful.
"When I got home that night, everything was fine but we got into an argument. When I look back on it, part of me thinks he made a decision and I wasn't given a say in this...he didn't want to be talked out of it."
The couple had little communication with each other since initial discussions of a split, so it's no surprise the news hit the reality TV show star hard.
"I talked to him right after because I thought that must be a joke, but that was kind of the end of the communication," she explained.
"What am I supposed to say? What do you say after that? It's like now I have to find a place to live. Now I have to scramble to figure this out.
"When I found out I was minutes before leaving the house for work, so I immediately just grabbed a few things and got out of there as fast as I could. I don't think I really knew where I was going or what I was going to do but I just had to leave."
In another blow for the 39-year-old, earlier in the summer Justin was spotted kissing his former The Young and the Restless costar Sofia Pernas, with rumours speculating they had been dating for several weeks at the time.
We can't help feel heartbroken for Chrishell, who has grown to be one of our favourite agents at The Oppenheim Group, but we're certain she'll bounce back stronger than ever.
Selling Sunset Season 3 is available to watch now on Netflix.
