Six months after he filed for divorce, news broke that Hartley was dating his former Young and the Restless costar Sofia Pernas.

In her interview with People, Stause revealed that it was “painful” to see her ex-husband move on so fast after their breakup. “I feel like anybody would be heartbroken to see how quickly or easily you are replaced; of course that’s going to sting,” she said.
