A new relationship involving a former ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant is making waves around the internet – but there are some rumors suggesting the romance may not actually be the real deal.
Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause was paired with pro Gleb Savchenko while taking part on the show, and rumors swirled that the two were having an affair. At the time, a source told Us Weekly that Stause and Savchenko “had an attraction to each other right from the start” and shared that the two had a “flirty relationship” while working together.
A flurry of rumors that a then-married Savchenko was having an affair with his dance partner. Those rumors only got worse when Savchenko’s wife, according to Hello!
Savchenko and Stause denied a romantic relationship, and Stause eventually went public with another dancer – Keo Motsepe. However, many people thought the relationship was just a cover to hide Stause’s relationship with Savchenko, according to Us Weekly.
Stause went on to date her boss, Jason Oppenheim, and many fans have debated whether the relationship was the real deal or just a showmanship. Since Stause and Oppenheim broke up, she has gone public with someone else.
Here’s what you need to know:
Stause and Oppenheim seemed to have an extremely emotional breakup, stemming from Oppenheim deciding he didn’t want to have children. Just before the Selling Sunset reunion aired, there were rumors that Stause was dating G Flip, an Australian musician who identifies as non-binary.
Shortly after the Stause and G Flip rumors surfaced, someone sent Bravo and Cocktails a blind, claiming that the relationship wasn’t real. The anonymous source hinted that Stause and G Flip’s romance will soon be over.
“Her latest ‘love interest’ is the most ridiculous thing yet, but with so many people going for the last two fake relationships, she’s getting really cheeky. After the reunion, they are expected to make it public. Then count on it taking less than six weeks,” the blind man read.
On May 10, 2022, about a week after Netflix released the “Selling Sunset” reunion, Stause shared a vulnerable video in which she discussed her personal life.
“Of course, like I said on the show, you don’t get to choose when you walk into someone’s life,” Stause said, adding that she and Oppenheim just didn’t want to get the same things out of their relationship, but that it was “the love does not diminish” they had for each other.
“In this current situation with G, it’s one of those things, yeah, I wish we were at the same stage in our lives and we wanted the same things, but that doesn’t take away from the deep connection we’ve made,” she said about their new relationship.
“I don’t know what that will look like in the end,” she added. She explained that she’s aware of her options, suggesting she still wants to get pregnant despite dating someone who has the same reproductive system as her.
“For me it’s about the people. It’s about her heart… I’m attracted to male energy and I don’t care what the physical form is,” she continued. She went on to explain that G Flip identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns “they/they” as a guide.
Stause ended her video by saying she was “happy” and assuring her fans that they had “no worries” about her.
The video was well received by Stause’s ex and her current partner.
“Such a beautiful video,” Oppenheim wrote in the comments.
“Well said, nice,” added G Flip.
