Chrishell Stause’s parents both passed away within the past two years. It’s been a really rough time for her as she tries to navigate life without them. But she still wants to honor their memory and that’s why she’s dedicating her next Dancing With The Stars performance to them.
In an ET guest post, the Selling Sunset star reveals she and Gleb Savchenko will perform a contemporary routine next week. Their song will be “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Chrishell says she listened to the song a lot to help her through her mother’s death this summer.
It’s going to be a very emotional week for Chrishell Stause, but fans are exciting to see what she will bring to the dance floor for week 6.
Chrishell Stause Joined DWTS To Do Something Positive After A Year of Heartbreak
We reported a few months ago that the tragedies she faced this year are actually what motivated her to join Dancing With The Stars in the first place. Selling Sunset fans recall that her husband, Justin Hartley, asked her for a divorce via text message this year.
“I’m hoping this will be a new chapter, something positive,” she told ET at the time. “An experience I can kinda throw myself into and just kind of learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. I have no dance experience, so it’s going to at least be a laugh for all of us.”
And it’s definitely been a wild ride for the actress. She scored poorly in week 1, but made drastic improvements over the last several weeks. While she and Gleb are at the bottom of the leader board, they continue to grow and improve.
Is There Trouble Backstage?
However, things aren’t always so sunny in the rehearsal room. Chrishell also discussed the fight she and Gleb had recently. The details are still a secret, but she says the two patched things up and are trying their best to win the competition. He even brought her a bouquet of flowers to apologize.

Ok full disclosure, @glebsavchenkoofficial and I had our first fight-ha! If apologies look like THIS, I guess it’s not so bad!! 🥰💕 We both care so much and I love the passion he brings to what he does. We are working on me picking up some of his strict Russian nature, and I am softening him up with a little southern charm. Finding the balance landed us here and I truly think this could be our best week yet 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼 #TeamSellingIt #DWTS
“Dancing is his art and I love the passion he brings to it. But I am new to it, so we have to work to find the balance in that. I hate letting him down, but he appreciates that I am working so hard every single day and giving it everything I have,” she said about her partner.
Are you rooting for Chrishell and Gleb? Make sure you vote and tune in to Dancing With The Stars next Monday to see what happens next. You won’t want to miss out on this tear-jerking routine.
