Mary Fitzgerald And Romain Bonnet Confirm They Had A “Civil Union” Prior To Filming ‘Selling Sunset’ Season 1

Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet have some explaining to do after it was discovered that they were actually married before filming Selling Sunset Season 1 and we’re not sure the defence they just shared with the press will be enough to silence their critics.

Mary and Romain had a civil union a couple of months before the show began filming in June of 2018, but they chose not to tell any of their friends or family, as they were still trying to see if their relationship would work out in the long term,” a representative for Mary told PEOPLE exclusively, confirming TMZ’s report from earlier Sunday (August 23).

Added the rep, “In their minds, they weren’t properly married until the wedding that was filmed during the show.”

As previously reported, TMZ has obtained Mary and Romain’s marriage license and revealed that the duo actually wed on March 9, 2018, months before their wedding was filmed on October 12, 2019 for Season 2.

During the Netflix reality show’s first season, Mary and Romain openly talked about the challenges in their relationship including Romain’s hesitancy to both get married and have children, and now, fans are left wondering how real the show really is.

Even some of their co-stars, namely Christine Quinn and Davina Potratz, doubted how genuine the relationship was, sacrificing both their friendships with their co-stars and some popularity with viewers while doing so.

Selling Sunset has not yet been renewed for Season 4 but if we had to take any bets, we would assume that the show has entered production or is about to with the amount of stories and leaks coming from the cast.

#SellingSunset creator Adam DiVello is opening up about what Season 4 of the show may look like should Netflix want to begin filming during the pandemic.⁣ ⁣ "We don’t know. We’ve all been scratching our heads about that," he said in an interview with @Variety. "Netflix has other shows that are in production or are ramping up, and I think that we’ll have to follow their protocol. We have a really small crew on this show, believe it or not. It’s typically under 40 people so I don’t think we’d have a problem social distancing or keeping six feet apart from one another."⁣ ⁣ He continued, "Our cast, they’re rarely that close and if we have to spread their desks out six feet then [we will]. Obviously we’ll take every precaution there is and we’ll just take our time and do it when the time is right."⁣ ⁣ Recently, cast members Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, Heather Rae Young, and Amanza Smith seemed to tease Season 4 renewal news by posting a cryptic photo and caption to their social media.⁣ ⁣ Visit or click the link in bio for more from Adam's interview including who was cast first, and whether he’s giving Davina the villain edit.⁣ 👀 ⁣ 📸 Nick Afro / BuzzFeed News ⁣ #SellingSunsetNetflix #NetflixSellingSunset #Netflix #SellingSunset3 #SellingSunset4 #AdamDiVello #TheHills #LagunaBeach #MTV #RealityTV #RealityTVNews #TVNews #LinkInBio @adamdivello @chrishell.stause @themaryfitzgerald @davinapotratz @netflix @netflixca

Just recently, creator Adam DiVello sat for an interview with Variety where he refused to talk about Christine and Davina, further indicating that there is some sort of divide on set.

Between Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet’s fake (?) marriage, Maya Vander condsidering leaving the company, and Brett Oppenheim having recently parted ways with his brother Jason Oppenheim, there is certainly no lack of story amongst the cast.

Selling Sunset Season 3 is on Netflix worldwide right now.
