Days of our Lives star, Chrishell Stause (AKA Jordan Ridgeway) just lost her mom – and Justin Hartley (her soon-to-be-ex-husband), offered no condolences online. Instead, the Young and the Restless actor recently said how great his life is without her.
Days of our Lives: Jordan Ridgeway Actress Chrishell Stause Loses Both Parents to Lung Cancer
It’s been a bad year and a half for Chrishell Stause. Last year, in April 2019, her father, Jeffrey Stause, passed away from lung cancer. Then, in November 2019, former Adam Newman actor Justin Hartley blindsided Chrishell with divorce papers.
Plus, Justin said they split in July 2019, but Chrishell maintains they were together up until he shocked her by filing a divorce in November of 2019. But, the Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives actors wound up in negotiations to settle the split and it’ll be final soon.
Then, in February 2020, doctors diagnosed Chrishell Stause’s mom, Ranae Stause, with the same lung cancer that killed her father. Even worse, the Days of our Lives actress couldn’t see her mom regularly at the hospice because of COVID-19 restrictions. Chrishell shared her mother’s passing on July 18, 2020.
Young and the Restless Alumnus Justin Hartley Ignores Wife’s Loss on Social Media
Last week, Justin Hartley met with Chrishell Stause and lawyers in a conference to iron out the final details of their divorce. Sadly, even after he filed the divorce, she said she “truly” loves him still. Last week, Chrishell asked to have her name legally changed back from Chrishell Hartley to Stause.
This all came while Days of our Lives alum Chrishell faced her mother Ranae’s last painful days struggling with lung cancer. Chrishell said it was “absolutely heartbreaking” seeing Ranae Stause, her mom, take her “last labored breath.” But, she said she was “at peace,” knowing her mother wasn’t in pain anymore.
When Chrishell Stause shared her a tribute to her mother, fellow soap actors from Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives, Bold and the Beautiful and other shows shared condolences on her loss. But noticeably absent is any comment or acknowledgment from Justin Hartley on his mother-in-law’s tragic death.
Instead, in an interview published two days prior, Justin said he was a “happy guy” and “sleeps like a baby.” Justin Hartley said he doesn’t have “anything on my mind” and said he’s “very very lucky”post-split. The photo below has them looking happy days before Justin served divorce papers out of the blue.
Y&R Actor Radio Silent Online on Wife Losing Her Mother
Looking at Days of our Lives and Selling Sunset‘s Chrishell Stause’s post about her mom, we see well wishes from Young and the Restless stars Melissa Ordway, Greg Rikaart, Jason Thompson, Tracey Bregman, Melissa Claire Egan, and others. But nothing from Y&R alum Justin Hartley.
Chrishell Stause’s Days of our Lives co-stars Robert Scott Wilson, Camila Banus, and others shared kind thoughts and prayers too. Soap fans, reality stars, and other actors offered comforting words to Chrishell. However, you can see Justin’s online promoting his show. This is Us – but that’s it.
Let’s hope that Justin Hartley reached out to Chrishell Stause privately to offer his condolences on her loss. After all, Ranae Stause was his mother-in-law. However, a public show of support from Justin to Chrishell would be nice to see. As of now, there’s none. We’ll update here if he speaks up on the loss.
We send our kindest thoughts to Chrishell Stause as she struggles with the loss of her mother, Ranae Stause, a little more than a year after she lost her dad, Jeffrey Stause, to the same awful illness. Also, look for Chrishell as Jordan Ridgeway this week on DOOL as she briefly returns to the NBC soap.
