Season two of Selling The OC has not been without drama. From the luxury listings to the typical Opponheim Group gossip, fans of the show have a lot of questions. But most of them are for Tyler Stanaland and Alex Hall, who got pretty cosy in the wake of Tyler's divorce from Pitch Perfect actor Brittany Snow.

The 37-year-old actor has been in the public eye of her own accord for years, having appeared in films like John Tucker Must Die (2006) and Hairspray (2007). But most recently her name has been dragged into the headlines because of her ex-husband's antics on Selling The OC.

So, who is Brittany Snow? Here's everything you need to know.

We have realized we need to take some time and make sure we are each living our most fulfilling and authentic lives.

'We started this journey as best friends and our relationship will continue to be a priority not only for us but for our dog Charlie. We sincerely appreciate your support and ask for privacy as we navigate this new chapter.'

What happened between Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland from Selling The OC?

Rumours that Brittany and Tyler's marriage was on the rocks began circulating when Tyler claimed his Selling The OC co-star, Kayla Cardona, tried to kiss him off-camera. And a source said, 'Brittany never wanted Tyler on the show but he was adamant.

It has also been reported that the attention Tyler entertained from his co-stars on the show 'put a toll' on their marriage. This proved true in season two when Tyler got particularly close to his 'friend' Alex Hall before his divorce proceedings were underway.
