12. How They Met
As soap opera veterans, many would assume that the pair saw sparks fly through work, but in fact they only met in passing. Their love story actually began thanks to a friend who was acting with Stause on Days of Our Lives. Hartley admitted to Larry King that he had seen Stause through the show and was interested in her, but at first it didn’t go well for him. “I kinda asked about her, but I think she was seeing somebody at the time, so I let it go, and then several months went by and he was like, ‘Hey, I think Chrishell, I think she might be available but I’m not sure.’ So I was like, ‘Okay, well let me give it a few more months,’ Cause you don’t want to be the rebound guy,” he explained to Larry King. Luckily, when Hartley was ready to make his move, Stause was still single, so the mutual friend agreed to help set them up.
