Jason, who used to date Fitzergald long before they became Netflix costars, previously¬†told PEOPLE¬†he was unsure about dating a co-worker at the Oppenheim Group, calling a potential relationship with a¬†Selling Sunset¬†star a “big bowl of mess that I don’t need to get into.”

“I’m definitely looking for someone that I’m friends with, and that I’m happy with, because I can have stress in my life from work. So someone I’m relaxed with, happy with, and that’s just funny and smart,” he added.


Fitzgerald recently told PEOPLE that she is happy for Jason and Stause. “I couldn’t be more excited for them! They are both two of my closest and dearest friends, so I’m over the moon that they’re together and make each other so happy, now Romain and I have our closest friends as a couple to double date with! I’m elated!”

Fitzgerald is a real estate agent, who wedded husband Romain Bonnet in fall 2019.
