In true Christine Quinn fashion, the reality star has announced that she will not be returning to the hit Netflix reality show, “Selling Sunset” for season six or seven. During an interview last month with The New York Times, Quinn jokingly said, “Hulu, give me a call.”
The Real Estate Agent Opened her Own Brokerage
The real estate agent, 33, has been on the show since the first season in 2019. She has been a staple through the first five seasons of the show that follows the agents of the Oppenheim Group in Los Angeles. In April, Quinn left the brokerage to work with her husband Christian Dumontet on their new crypto real estate venture, RealOpen. “I terminated my contract when the brokerage launched. I had to make a business decision that was for me, so I had to terminate the contract so I could move it over to my brokerage,” Quinn told People.
Missing the Season Five Reunion Show
Ending her time at the Oppenheim Group meant her “Selling Sunset” days could be numbered. Furthering that rumor, Quinn was M.I.A. for the show’s season five reunion, claiming to have COVID-19. Costar and former best friend, Mary Fitzgerald, had something to say about Quinn missing the reunion. “We didn’t want to have to talk to her about her actions, and I’m sure she didn’t want to have answers for her actions. So we didn’t want to be there talking about it either, but it’s our job. We’re doing it,” Fitzgerald told TMZ at the time.
In May, she denied the rumors of her faking the virus to avoid the drama with her reality show costars during the reunion show. “I absolutely did have COVID. I absolutely did,” she said while on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen.
“Hulu, Give Me a Call”
Quinn is known for having drama around her at all times, and for not always getting along with other cast members. “I feel like I was the only one that understood the assignment. I was the only one that said, ‘Hey, this is a show, and I’m going to give the world a show,'” she told The New York Times. She also hinted around to getting her own show and jokingly said, “Hulu, give me a call.”
Drama, Drama, Drama!
In season four, Quinn became a mom. The reality star claimed that the season was edited incorrectly and that led to speculation about if she was actually pregnant during the season. Fans took note, and one asked her about the confusion on Twitter. “Christine but when we watched selling sunset, the yoga scene was after you [gave] birth. Love your vibe on the show but just a curious question. Is it edited wrong?” Quinn replied, “The one with Davina? Yes I was 100 percent pregnant.” Other tweets also pointed out editing flaws as far as her pregnancy was concerned, and Quinn was accused of faking her pregnancy by some.
The drama didn’t calm down in season five. One incident involved fellow real estate agent and costar Emma Hernan when she accused Quinn of bribing a client with $5,000 to quit working with her. Quinn denied the accusation and told People, “Accusing someone of a criminal tort is not only defamatory – but you can’t afford my lawyers. So it’s not a funny thing to say. I would never bribe a client. I’ve never bribed a client. I don’t need to bribe a client, because they’ll work with me organically.” Just before season five was set to launch, Quinn tweeted, “30 minutes till the launch of #SellingSunset. Enjoy the new season and all of its 5,000 fake storylines!” making some wonder if the bribery incident was actually staged.
Ventures Outside of Real Estate
In addition to now opening her own agency, Quinn has reportedly signed with IMG models, and recently appeared on the runway for Balenciaga in Paris last month. Her first book also came out earlier this year, “How To Be A Boss B*tch.”
