“I still had a month left of shooting when my personal life kind of exploded.

“They were there and some of it is going to be shown and I'm dreading that."
Chrishell was seen in an episode of season three of Selling Sunset telling co-star Mary Fitzgerald her husband's decision 'completely blindsided' her.
