Chrishell Stause Net Worth

Chrishell Stause net worth is $7 million as of 2022. Her annual salary is around $500 thousand due to a reality TV series, appearances, and online brand marketing through endorsements.

It's estimated that Stause charges around $4,000 for sponsored posts. She is also a celebrity spokesperson for Proactiv.

She makes a hefty amount of her money these days by selling fancy real estate properties in Los Angeles, California. In the past, she made money from working on various soap operas.

Early Life

Stause was born in Draffenville, Kentucky on July 21, 1981. She recently celebrated her 41st birthday.

Chrishell is actually her middle name, but she goes by that instead of her given name, Terrina.

Stause grew up with her siblings in poverty, but she doesn't share much about her early life or parents. Reports say that Stause has four siblings, but only two are known to the public.

On the show Selling Sunset, Stause does mention that she and her family were homeless at a couple of points in her early life. Her mother moved the family from trailer parks to cheap rental apartments when Strause was a young age.

Her mother went into labor with her at a Shell gas station. It was too late to make it to the hospital so an assistant working at the gas station had to help her deliver the baby. From this, her mom gave her the middle name Chrishell.

After graduating high school, she completed a bachelor's degree in theater from Murray State University in 2003. She began throwing all of her energy into the competitive entertainment industry.


Stause began her career path early in soap opera acting. Two years after graduating college, she was cast in All My Children in 2015. She gained her early attention with the role of Amanda Dillon Martin.

Stause continued her role in the show until 2011 when it was canceled after being on air for 41 years.

After that, she made a guest appearance in the series Body of Proof. She made another guest appearance in 2015 in the ABC prime-time soapy drama called Mistresses.

Later in Los Angeles, she became a member of The Groundlings. Then, she joined The Young and the Restless cast as Bethany Bryant.

In 2017, she came out with her debut film where she played the leading role of Lila in Eve of Abduction.

Dancing With the Stars

In 2020, she joined a cast of celebrities for Dancing With the Stars. She gained further recognition by competing in this show's 29th season.

Unfortunately, she didn't win the Mirrorball Trophy and was eliminated in the 8th week of the competition.

Selling Sunset

These days, most of her fame comes from the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset. The show is based on the "Oppenheim Group," a real estate brokerage that handles elite and expensive properties in Los Angeles.

As a real estate agent, Stause was able to join the cast despite mean looks from resident Oppenheim Group real estate agent, Christine Quinn. The two have a rough relationship that we'll get into later.

Selling Sunset's fifth season was recently released on Netflix. Stause confirmed on her Instagram that the show has officially been renewed for a sixth and seventh season.

We can expect to see Stause and the crazy Oppenheim Group in the near future as filming for the new seasons starts this year.


A lot of people know of Stause's relationship with now ex-husband Justin Harley, but there are more relationships that some fans don't know much about.

Matthew Morrison

In 2004, Stause began dating actor Matthew Morrison. In 2006, after two years of dating, the coupe got engaged. Their plan was to get married the following year.

The two ended up splitting shortly after their engagement. Neither party ever revealed the cause of their breakup.

Justin Hartley

In 2014, Stause and Justin Hartley met on the set of The Young and the Restless and started dating. Two years later, they announced their engagement and got married on October 28, 2017.

The couple filed for divorce in November of 2019. It's unclear exactly when the two separated. The divorce wasn't finalized until early 2021.

The divorce was very public and was followed during the filming of Selling Sunset. During the show, Stause claimed that she didn't see the divorce coming and Hartley filed for divorce at random.

Hartley cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.

People close to them knew that the couple was struggling, but not enough to get a divorce. Much like the divorce was a surprise to Stause, her friends and family were just as surprised when the news broke.

In May 2021, Hartley appeared after the divorce on the red carpet at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, an event with various celebrities, with actress Sofia Pernas. Fans quickly noticed rings on their marriage fingers.

Sure enough, the two got secretly married after dating publicly for five months prior.

Jason Oppenheim

In the same year that the divorce between Stause and Hartley was finalized, Strause began dating her coworker/costar/boss, Jason Oppenheim.

Stause met Jason and his twin Brett Oppenheim when she began working with the Oppenheim Group in 2018. At the time, she was still married to Hartley.

While the cast of Selling Sunset was taking a break between filming seasons four and five, Jason and Stause announced that they were dating.

The two were first close friends which ended up developing into a relationship. The couple was open about what they were looking for.

Chrishell wanted to keep their relationship private for as long as they could. Their relationship wasn't mentioned in season four of the show because they didn't go public with the news until filming had already started.

Some fans speculated about the legitimacy of their relationship because Jason was never one to be in a serious relationship.

On the show, however, the couple spoke about the possibility of having a baby together. Stause has always wanted children and said that she was running out of time biologically to make family life a possibility.

Before Christmas in the same year, the couple broke up partially due to the fact that Jason couldn't commit to having a child. The two remain friends and still have love for each other.

On the season five reunion of Selling Sunset, both parties shared a few tears about the end of their relationship.

G Flip

Also shown in the reunion of Selling Sunset, Stause revealed that she had been seeing someone. Australian singer G Flip and Stause began dating before season five of Selling Sunsetwas released.

The musician identifies as non-binary which came as a surprise to many fans aware of Stause's past relationships.

G Flip revealed that they met Stause on Halloween in 2021. Both were in different relationships at the time of meeting.

Once they each separated from their previous partners, the two started talking and learned that they had a lot of similarities.

In May 2022, G Flip released a music video for their song "GET ME OUTTA HERE" which featured Chrishell Stause.

Stause has taken to Instagram a few times during their relationship to discuss and help fans better understand gender identity.

G Flip has said in interviews that they see kids in the future, something Stause has always been open about.

In May 2022, the two vacationed together in Australia. The couple is still currently together based on their social media presence with each other.

Christine Quinn

Christine Quinn and Chrishell Strause don't have the strongest relationship. However, the two's very broken friendship is always asked about by fans and makes headlines in the tabloids so we thought we'd add it.

This "hatemance" began when Strause started working at the Oppenheim Group. Quinn's fate with the Oppenheim Group was left in question due to a scandal.

Despite the bad blood between the two, Strause shouted out the women of Selling Sunset on International Women's Day and included Quinn in the post.


During the time Stause was getting a divorce, her parents were sick. Jeff Stause, Stause's father, passed away in April 2019 after battling lung cancer.

Jeff adopted Stause when she was born. She always called Jeff her dad because she never met her biological father.

Months after the passing of her father, Stause found out that her mother was diagnosed with the same lung cancer her father had in February 2020.

Because of COVID-19, Stause was unable to see her mother during this time but the two continued to grow their relationship via technology.

Stause was eventually able to see her mother, who died by her side in July 2020. Although the family was poor while Stause was younger, she says that her parents were very loving people.

Shonda Stause, Chrishell's older sister, made an appearance in seasons one and three of Selling Sunset. You can see Shonda comforting Stause on the show after her divorce from Hartley.

Stause also has a younger sister, Sabrina Stause. Although not featured on the show, she is often seen in photos with Stause. The two are best friends, but very little is known about her.


Chrishell Stause has a pretty open life on social media and by starring in a hit Netflix reality TV series. There are still some common questions asked about the star.
