‘It’s just one of those things,’ she told E! News. ‘You don’t want to share with everybody and get all their opinions before you really know what it is.’

‘We really were really private and secretive for as long as we could until we realized the walls were closing in. People were getting a little savvy to it.’

And things are clearly working out as she publicly revealed her love for The Oppenheim Group boss while on vacation in Italy.

‘We made it to a point where we’re really happy to share it because we knew exactly what it was, so it’s all good,’ she said.

Chrishell admitted her friend Mary Fitzgerald — who previously dated Jason — was the first to find out about their relationship.

‘We’re all just so close and we all work just so close together, and there’s no hiding it from Mary,’ she said. ‘We work together constantly. She’s our best friend.

‘In fact, it was fine that she knew because she could kind of help detract any [attention] because if Mary’s there we’re all just hanging out as a group.’

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant insisted there is no awkwardness between her, Mary and Jason, despite the pair’s dating history.

It’s unclear if Stause and Oppenheim’s blossoming romance will be covered in the upcoming season, but during the explosive third season of Selling Sunset, Chrishell claimed her ex, Justin Hartley, informed her of his intent to divorce via text message, just 45 minutes before the heartbreaking news was made public.

A source told People at the time of their split that the pair had been having trouble for a while’ and were ‘fundamentally incompatible’ as a couple.
