AceShowbiz - Chrishell Stause explained her beef with her "Selling Sunset" co-star Christine Quinn. In a new interview with Vulture, the realtor revealed that there was much more going on behind-the-scenes that led to their feud.
"I'd rather just be honest and tell you: She tried to plant a false story when I was going through my divorce and I had to have both sides confirm that it wasn't true and then threaten legal action," the ex-wife of actor Justin Hartley shared. "And this was right after my mom died."
The Oppenheim Group real estate agent went on to explain, "It was a lot on my plate and kicking someone while they're down and trying to spread a rumor that I was hooking up with someone. Both parties knew that is not what happened."
"They had to pull it, but to try and even put that out there at a time where everybody was wondering what happened and I lost my mom--to me that's so below the belt," she continued.
According to Chrishell, Christine didn't stop there as she continued to spread rumors. "She did it again recently, trying to say that me and Jason were happening before, and it's just not true," Chrishell said of her relationship with Jason Oppenheim. "You can understand how that really could take someone down and ruin them when everyone on the internet is trying to figure out what happened. She takes it as an opportunity to fill in some blanks that were blatantly untrue. It was many steps too far for me."
The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant went public with her romance with Jason in July 2021. When asked about the relationship, Christine previously said in an interview on E! News' Daily Pop, "I think it's a very interesting thing. I think it works for them. I think it's very advantageous too. I mean, s**t, maybe that's why I'm so bad at real estate. Maybe I'm doing it all wrong!"
