Chrishell Stause is enjoying the single life.
The Selling Sunset star, 40, posted three thirst trap photos of herself rocking a leopard-print bikini and matching sunglasses to Instagram on Tuesday afternoon. The Under Construction author is currently on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, celebrating her costar Emma Hernan’s birthday.
The tropical girls’ getaway came after both Stause and Oppenheim opened up about their split in separate statements on social media last Tuesday.
“While Chrishell and I are no longer together, we remain best friends and we will always love and support one another,” Oppenheim revealed on his Instagram Story at the time. “She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life.”
He continued that he and Stause “have different wants regarding a family,” but the pair — who broke up after five months together — “continue to have the utmost respect for one another.”
In her own Instagram post, Stause echoed that the decision to end the relationship was due to their “ideas for family ultimately not being aligned.”
“Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes,” she added. “All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best…I very much hope to one day have a family and decisions I make at this point are with that goal in mind.”
Last year, Stause opened up about the decision to freeze her eggs in order to find a potential future partner without the pressure of starting a family in a certain time frame.
“I’m going to do everything I can to take that power in the situation, and hopefully, that will empower me going forward in the dating world, so there’s not so much pressure,” she shared.
Meanwhile, Emma Hernan, one of the newest additions to the Selling Sunset cast, shared insight about the couple’s recent breakup.
While Christine has labeled Emma as a villain for dating her ex, Peter Cornell, Emma has proven to be an expert at her craft. She appeared on the show successfully selling Hollywood real estate and quickly moving up in the office, perhaps even surpassing Christine. Even though Emma was at the center of season 4 drama, she has become a fan-favorite addition to the series. Many viewers see past the petty accusations targeted at Emma and see her close connection with her fellow agents at the Oppenheim Group. In fact, she became especially close to Chrishell.
Emma praised Chrishell and Jason for their maturity level throughout their relationship. When asked about the breakup, Emma explained, “They handled [the breakup] very well. They’re literally best friends, and they’ve remained close throughout the breakup, which is nice.”
