Chrishell Stause is one of the hottest reality TV stars out there right now, but her life wasn’t always glamorous.

She was born in the Midwest and lived through some very humble beginnings. Her birth name is Terrina Chrishell Stause.

Her middle name is a nod to the fact that she was born at a Shell gas station and the attendant on duty, Chris, helped her mom to deliver her.

Coming off a high-profile split from Justin Hartley, Chrishell Stause has worked through it effortlessly.

From being a part of Netflix’s Selling Sunset to her competing on the most recent season of Dancing with the Stars, Chrishell has a lot going on.

In 2005, she got her big start in the soap world, and now, she is known for so much more.

Following her stint on Dancing with the Stars, Chrishell Stause went public with her relationship with professional dancer Keo Motsepe.
