Elena Samodanova Gives Divorce Update, Snubs Chrishell Stause

It seems like all the divorce drama between Elena Samodanova and Gleb Savchenko isn’t over yet. The Russian dancer recently gave an update on the divorce proceedings — and she threw some shade at Chrishell Stause in the process.

If you follow Elena on Instagram, you know she frequently hosts Instagram live sessions with fans. She lets fans ask questions and often doesn’t hold back — even when the subject matter is sensitive. And of course, fans want to know all about her divorce with DWTS pro Gleb Savchenko.

Elena Samodanova fills fans in on the latest divorce news

When Gleb and Elena announced their divorce last fall, many fans pointed fingers at Gleb’s DWTS partner, Chrishell Stause. Gleb and Chrishell denied any romantic connection, but not everyone bought that story. But even so, it doesn’t seem like Elena forgot all the drama.

During the Instagram live session, one fan asked how Elena Samodanova felt about the Selling Sunset star. Elena replied, “Chrishell, WHO???”

The Chrishell comment didn’t go unnoticed. But even so, Elena says that things aren’t quite as dramatic between her and Gleb now. They do have two daughters to co-parent, after all. They both share custody of Olivia, 10, and Zlata, 4.

“I think we are more gentle to each other now,” she said on her Instagram story over the weekend. “He is [the] father of my kids, I wish him all the best.”

Another fan asked when the divorce would be finalized. Elena announced that it was coming “very soon.”

Tensions really seem to cool off between the exes

After all the drama last fall, fans probably did notice that things between Gleb and Elena are much less tense. In fact, some fans even wondered if the exes planned to get back together.

Back in the spring, the exes went on vacation together. But it’s not what you might think. According to PEOPLE, the two agreed to go on vacation together during their daughters’ spring break. It was a way for both of them to enjoy their daughters while they were on a break from school.

“We’re trying to move on, we’re friends, we’re co-parenting together, we’re on great terms,” Gleb told ET back in March. It would appear that Elena is echoing his sentiments.

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on September 20 and fans expect that Gleb Savchenko will be part of the cast. Hopefully his next partner won’t cause as much drama between the exes as Chrishell Stause did.
