Home » Selling Sunset Creator Reveals Why Justin Hartley Never Appeared in the Show Before Chrishell Stause Split
The creator of Selling Sunset has revealed why Justin Hartley was never featured in the show, before his divorce from star Chrishell Stause.
In the latest season of the Netflix hit, viewers followed Chrishell as she attempted to process the news that the This Is Us star, who she’d been married to since 2017, had begun divorce proceedings.
The plot point proved to be the driving force of Selling Sunset’s third season, and now the show’s creator has revealed the reason why Justin, even pre-split, had never appeared on the show.
Adam DiVello told Variety: ‘I think it was just contractual. We certainly asked many, many times.’
‘I think it was just his contract with NBC,’ the legendary creator of reality shows like The Hills went on.
In the US, Justin is one of the stars of mega-drama This Is Us, which follows the lives of a family throughout several generations and also stars Mandy Moore and Sterling K Brown.
One of the most dramatic instances in the most recent season of Selling Sunset saw Chrishell, still visibly greiving from the split, attending her frenemy Christine Quinn’s gothic winter wedding – only to remove herself from the situation after an awkward encounter with co-worker Davina Potratz.
In scenes that enraged viewers, Davina seemingly defended Justin over Chrishell, insisting that there were ‘two sides of every story.’
Now, in an interview with Metro.co.uk, Davina claimed that she never meant to pick sides of Chrishell’s divorce, despite what fans may think.
While season four of Selling Sunset is yet to be confirmed, it’s shaping up to be the most dramatic yet.
Christine especially has got tongues wagging by revealing that Brett Oppenheim has now left the business that he shares with twin brother Jason to start his own brokerage.
We basically need to binge it already.
Selling Sunset is available now via Netflix.
