Relationships are a bitch. They aren’t all sunshine and roses, which is why I would never want a relationship to play out in the public eye. The world and their judgements are hard to deal with.
But can you imagine if you’re on a reality TV show and you have to film, after the world knew that your famous husband dumped you via text? Hard pass. But that’s what Chrishell Stause had to do. The Selling Sunset star spoke out about why she decided to continue filming the show after the very public breakup.
“That was obviously very humiliating and the fact that I still had to film a reality show, it was either that or quit. But all of a sudden, I just lost everything, and I didn’t want to lose the one thing that I worked really hard to have, which was my job and a new career, and so I pushed through,” Stause said on Molly Sims Lipstick On The Rim podcast.
She continued, “That show coming out—people then connecting with me in the middle of a pandemic and sharing their stories with me—has completely changed my mindset of being open about things versus not. I think transparency is so much better than trying to pretend your life is perfect.”
She definitely has a point. Transparency and being honest is definitely important, but it also takes a ton of courage to be so open and return to the public eye.
What do you think? Would you be able to return to the public eye after a breakup like she had?
