Chrishell Stause shared the reason why she and Jason Oppenheim broke up after dating for a few months.
On Tuesday, December 21, the Selling Sunset star took to Instagram to reveal that she and Oppenheim respect each other but their relationship won’t work because they have different future plans.
She wrote, “I have tried to embrace the world I have found myself in and that includes being open and honest about my relationships. It felt scary and terrifying knowing that it may not end in what society deems a success and what I am ultimately looking for. But after many long heartfelt talks, I am choosing to see it as a success no matter what label is attached to it publicly.”
Chrishell added, “Jason was and is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward.”
Although she loved spending time with Jason, she hinted that they don’t exactly feel the same way about having children in the future. She explained, “Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes.”
“I very much hope to one day have a family and decisions I make at this point are with that goal in mind. Thank you for the kindness and support to those that understand,” she said. She explained that she wanted to keep their break up private because “navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.”
“No one would rather only speak about work related things more than me. But I understand this comes with it and I will always love and be extremely grateful for the opportunities I have been given. Although my initial reaction to a private situation was to not speak on it, sometimes it’s easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life,” Chrishell shared.
In conclusion, she mentioned her ex saying, “And thank you Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me even when it hurts.”
Meanwhile, the real estate broker also referred to Chrishell in his Instagram Story where he wrote, “She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life. While we have different wants regarding a family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another.”
