Fans of Selling Sunset will see Chrishell Stause back to her usual chipper self when the fourth season hits Netflix on November 24.
Last season, the star endured serious heartbreak when her husband, This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, suddenly filed for divorce. Though she didn't want to discuss it publicly, she was somewhat forced to address the situation since the cameras at The Oppenheim Group office were always rolling.
"It was just such a dark, dark, time," the real estate agent recalled to Bustle. "It was the hardest thing I've gone through."
Amid the rough patch, things worsened when she lost both of parents within a year — but she's since picked up the pieces, having moved into her own home and starting a new chapter of life.
Just as exciting, Stause revealed via Instagram that she and boss Jason Oppenheim struck up a romance earlier this year.
"We were about to get outed, so it was either I post it, or somebody else was about to post it," the soap opera actress explained. "I just wanted the freedom to be able to hold my boyfriend's hand. I knew it was going to be a thing."
While the pair's chemistry is sure to play out in the new batch of episodes, viewers can also expect plenty of drama between the coworkers.
"They do a really good job to make those moments real," she insisted of colleagues clashing, though she noted things would probably "blow over easier" if they weren't filming a reality show.
The Dancing With the Stars alum has never seen eye-to-eye with realtor Christine Quinn, and though they aren't anywhere near making amends, she insisted that she has no ill will towards the new mom.
"Not that she would want to apologize, but she's so far past being able to apologize for things that she's done. I honestly do say, sincerely, that I want the best for her," the Kentucky native stated. "I want her to have everything that she wants, because I think when someone is really happy and fulfilled, they don't try to do things to tear other people down."
