– Stause and Morrison got engaged but split soon after when Morrison realized he had proposed for the wrong reasons.
– Stause referenced her ex in a negative light on “Selling Sunset,” but in her memoir, she wrote that the two can now laugh about their past relationship.
– Stause admitted that when she was dating Morrison, she didn’t fully understand what a healthy relationship should look like.
Reality star Chrishell Stause and actor Matthew Morrison had a brief but tumultuous relationship that began in 2006. The couple got engaged a year later, but Morrison broke off the engagement soon after. In a 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan, Morrison admitted that he proposed for the wrong reasons and immediately regretted it.
Years later, Stause hinted at their rocky past during the first season of Selling Sunset, a Netflix reality show, saying that if she had stayed with the person she was with at 25 (presumably Morrison), she would have wanted to kill herself. The comment sparked rumors of bad blood between the exes, and Stause later wrote in her memoir that she didn’t fully understand what a healthy relationship looked like when she was with Morrison.
Despite the drama, Stause has said that she and Morrison have run into each other a few times since their breakup and can laugh about it all now. In her memoir, she added that she has since realized the importance of self-care and self-love, which she was lacking in her previous relationship. While the details of their split may never be fully known, Stause seems to have moved on and found happiness in her life and career.
