Her father, Jeff, passed away from lung cancer in 2019, and her mother, Ranae, died of the same disease the following year. Ranae ended her relationship with Chrishell’s biological father before she realized that she was pregnant, and Stause considered Jeff to be her father. Chrishell is one of five sisters, and her sister Shonda has appeared on “Selling Sunset.” Stause has said that her parents “struggled with addiction and mental health” and got involved with the Worldwide Church of God during her youth. In a 2018 interview with “Page Six,” Chrishell stated, “I was homeless a few times in my life and it was really hard growing up, but now I’m super grateful about everything.” She added, “I definitely relate to any kid who has lived without running water or electricity or having to be the smelly kid going to school because you don’t have the resources. It’s hard. I really relate to them and I want to help them as much as possible. It’s a unique situation that you’ll never forget where you came from.” Stause’s upbringing inspired her to work with the nonprofit organizations Upward Bound House and Blessings in a Backpack. Chrishell earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater from Murray State University in 2003.
