Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause is opening up about seeing her ex Justin Hartley moving on!

Last November, Stause was left heartbroken when her husband, This Is Us star Justin Hartley, suddenly filed for divorce. She opened up on Selling Sunset that she was completely blindsided by the divorce and that Justin had informed her of his decision over a text message.

Stause opened up to PEOPLE about that time in her life and how she’s doing now. “I’ve had to start over so many times in my life,” Stause shared. “I always know how to look at the bright side because there’s been a lot of dark.”

After her divorce, Stause has had to deal with another devastating situation in July, when her mother died of lung cancer after her father was diagnosed with the same disease in April 2019.

“It’s almost an ungrievable loss,” she says of the deaths. “The other loss, you can slowly recover and get over. This one just feels like I’m adapting, as opposed to getting over it.”

Stause shared, however, that she’s ready to move on and opened up about her ex’s new relationship. “I feel like anybody would be heartbroken to see how quickly or easily you are replaced; of course that’s going to sting,” Stause says of seeing Harley moving on publicly.

“It’s been almost a year, so I’m excited to get back out there. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I think it can still happen,″ Stause says. ″It’s 2020, maybe you could meet your person through an Instagram DM. I don’t know. Crazier things have happened!″

She added, ″I’m very happy, I’m in such a great place and I’m so grateful for everything. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.”
