In case you missed it, last month the 40-year-old former soap opera actress confirmed that she was dating her Selling Sunset co-star by posting a series of photos of them together on a vacation together in Italy.
During an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, Chrishell revealed that she and Jason started dating two months before they went public and shared why they decided to keep their relationship private for so long.

“It’s just one of those things. You don’t want to share with everybody and get all their opinions before you really know what it is,” Chrishell explained. “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. 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 continued.
She also shared that her co-worker Mary Fitzgerald was the first person she told about their romance.
“We’re all just so close and we all work just so close together, and there’s no hiding it from Mary,” Chrishell said. “We work together constantly. She’s our best friend.”
Mary and Jason actually dated back in the day, but Chrishell says there’s no awkwardness between the trio.
“That was so many years ago,” she said. “I just feel like, we’re all best friends at this point. Her and Romain [Bonnet] are so happy. It just feels like a family business…In fact, it was fine that she knew because she could kind of detract any [attention] because Mary‘s there, so we’re all just hanging out as a group.”
“It’s so funny how the show twists things, the real dynamics in the office, because they don’t go around giving us listings,” she said of rumors that Mary is Jason‘s go-to agent. “If anyone knows real estate, you have to go out and get your own listings. Mary‘s always going to be the rock in the office, somebody we all lean on and go to when we need advice.”
