FORMER Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay has claimed that Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause had become "jealous" of her estranged husband Justin Hartley's career.
Scheana and Chrishell became friends in 2017 but the reality star has now alleged that she fell out with the 39-year-old after Chrishell treated her badly.
The Bravo personality claimed that when Chrishell's dog was killed by in a car accident, she wanted to send her friend a gift but didn't know her new address.
She then direct messaged Justin on Instagram, to which Scheana claimed he thanked her and called the sentiment "sweet."
But when Scheana told mutual friend Jamie Lynne about her gift, Jamie revealed that Chrishell had already been in touch to criticize Scheana's actions.
"She then twists this conversation to Jamie and was like, 'Oh, my god. How embarrassing. Scheana texted?'" Scheana said.
"I don’t remember what it was she said exactly, but it was just, like, ‘How embarrassing’ with a bunch of, like, monkey-with-the-hands-over-the-face [emojis]."
Speaking on her podcast Scheananigans with Scheana Shay, Scheana – who was joined by Jamie and Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn – added: "I’ve just kept the peace.
"But for her to say now that Justin’s like a big TV and movie star [so] she can’t be seen with reality people?
"I was like, ‘Bitch! You were just as much a fan of me as I was of you.' We’ve all become friends but now because Justin’s on This Is Us, I’m not good enough for you to hang out with and you’re gonna talk s**t about me?"
Scheana also suggested that Chrishell was "jealous" of Justin's fame; they both appeared in soap The Young and the Restless but in 2016 he joined Emmy award-winning drama This Is Us.
She continued: "I think part of it was when Justin started to gain more fame than she’s ever had. I think there was a jealousy, competitiveness that in a relationship could ruin it ultimately, you know?
"Like now she’s not the one on a soap opera, getting recognized, when she goes out to dinner. Now she’s the girl taking the photos of him with fans and she was just kind of lost."
Jamie added: "Maybe it was getting together with Justin but, [now she’s] super hyper concerned about image and it’s like, why go on a reality show if you’re not gonna be real? You’re not gonna tell people what the actual story is and just be concerned with how you look? Like, why are you on a reality show?”
A rep for Chrishell told Us Weekly in response to their claims: "Chrishell has had a lot on her plate with what she has been through in the past year.
"Her focus is on the positive and about how women should uplift each other rather than tear each other down. She is moving forward and wishes them the best."
The This Is Us star shocked fans in November 2019 by filing for divorce from Chrishell, a move which reportedly came out of the blue for the realtor.
The new third season of netflix show Selling Sunset showed Chrishell talking to Mary Fitzgerald in tears as she reveals how she was “blindsided” by the news which she found out over text.
Justin’s documents allege that the pair separated in July 2019 however they had been seen out and about at public events together in the months after July.
Chrishell’s documents list a November date instead.
