Selling Sunset Explains Why She "Probably" Won't Be Full-Time If Show Returns for Season Six, Says She's Been "Manipulated" and "Edited"

Maya Vander isn’t on board with returning to her full-time role on Selling Sunset for season six.

Amid the Netflix reality show’s fourth season, which is currently streaming, Maya is explaining why a full-time return is highly unlikely and sharing her thoughts on the way in which the series is manipulated and edited.

“I’m definitely keeping my license in California with Jason but I do know that if [the show is renewed for] season six, I’m probably not going to be a full cast member because it’s going to be difficult for me logistically to do the back-and-forth again,,” Maya confirmed on an episode of The Domenick Nati Show. “It’s been challenging.”

Maya and her husband, who does not appear on the show, share son Aiden and daughter Elle.

“Plus, my business in Miami is really good and I want to focus on that,” Maya continued. “If I’m going to have a great client that’s worth my time to fly there, I’ll do it. If we’re filming at that time, great. But realistically speaking, I’m probably going to stay more focused in Miami, my family, and my business here, if we get renewed for another season.”

Following the release of Selling Sunset season four, Maya admitted that when it comes to the editing of the series, not everything is as it seems.

“A reality show can get easily manipulated and edited,” she stated.

“I did notice some stuff that I did not say. Somehow the words, if they don’t show your face but they put words together, they can create a sentence and make it look like I said something, which is pretty clever and interesting to watch. I did notice that they did a few things with me that I wasn’t part of it, really,” she explained.

Despite the often misleading edits, Maya said that she understands why certain things are taken out of context.

“It is part of being in a reality show and you take the chance and you are at the mercy of the producers at the end of the day, and the editing. Nothing we can do about it. We are in a reality show. We signed [a] contract and we respect the contract and we respect the fact that we’re putting ourselves out there and whatever they decide to make us look like, it is what it is,” she added.

Selling Sunset season four is currently streaming on Netflix.
