Christine Quinn‘s life after “Selling Sunset” has been anything but boring. The former reality star recently appeared on “The Masked Singer,” wrote a book, and is working on her acting and modeling career and living the mom life with her son Christian, 22 months.
Christine Quinn’s Life After “Selling Sunset” Is Thriving!
Quinn, 34, recently stepped out of her comfort zone into an elaborate “Scorpio” costume and appeared on “The Masked Singer.” After being eliminated from the show on Wednesday, she spoke to PEOPLE about the experience.
“It was basically like vintage Mugler meets alien chic,” she told PEOPLE. “They told me it was one of their costumes that took a lot more time, a lot more resources to do. I thought it was so cool and fantastic.”
She said that her character on “The Masked Singer” resembled her “villain” persona on “Selling Sunset” in many ways.
“It was one of those things I knew I had to do just to stand out and be remembered. I think there’s so many characters that we love who are the villains,” she said. “I was definitely hamming it up, but I had to. And I think it’s really fun.”
While Quinn says she’s not a singer or a performer, she thought being on the show would be a fun experience and stepping out of her comfort zone.
“I saw so many people doing it that were similar to me; I’m not a singer, I’m not a performer, but I wanted to do the show,” she said. “I just think it’s so fun. It’s something that got me out of my comfort zone.”
Christine Quinn Wrote a Book And Is Working On Her Acting Career (On Scripted Shows)
The former reality star wrote a book, “How to be a Boss B*tch,” with a paperback version released on May 9. She said the book was a project she had worked on for many years.
“That’s been an awesome process of people telling me, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so inspiring. This changed my life.’ And that was my goal when I was writing the book because I didn’t want to do another celebrity memoir,” she said. “I wanted it to be relatable material that people could learn from and harness the personality traits they already have and make them more powerful.”
When the topic of joining another reality show entered the chat, Quinn said, “never say never,” but she prefers to stick to scripted shows “where I can show my craft off.” Quinn has recently gotten more into acting, which she’s done in the past, and modeling.
“It was my first love in addition to fashion because I obviously loved playing characters,” she explained. “It’s really exciting to see the roles and everything out there and the stuff that I could be working on.”
Christine Quinn Shares Her Thoughts On The New Season Of “Selling Sunset”
Quinn, who spent five seasons on “Selling Sunset,” keeps up with her old reality show and still talks to a few cast members. She said the show now has a “different vibe” with so many new girls.
“The original recipe we had worked. When you keep bringing in new characters, it dilutes what people originally fell in love with,” she said. “I definitely think it’s going to be a completely different show, and I don’t think as many people are going to tune in.”
As for what Quinn thinks about the show’s longevity now that things have changed so much, she said, “it’s probably going to be the last season.”
