Christine Quinn didn’t appear at the Selling Sunset reunion. And because of her absence, many assumed she would also not return for season six — especially after confirming she’s no longer working at The Oppenheim Group, where the Netflix reality show is based. But what’s she’s saying?
Ahead of production on the new season, Christine is sharing her thoughts on returning for the new episodes, revealing where she stands with her former boss, Jason Oppenheim, and reacting to Chrishell Stause‘s new relationship with nonbinary musician G Flip.
After telling Us Weekly she’s “absolutely” returning, Christine declared, “I love the show. The show is, like, my No. 1 [and] everyone knows that. But we just have to get creative now because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group. … Maybe it’s a battle of the brokerages.”
According to Christine, she believes “a really interesting dynamic” is going to arise between her and the rest of the cast.
“I’m not going anywhere. Like, I’ll always be on television. I’m not going anywhere. It’s just, like, let’s have fun with this now,” she continued, noting that she’d love to see Chelsea Lazkani and Vanessa Villela return to the show to back her up.
Although Christine said she “terminated [her] contract” with The Oppenheim Group earlier this year amid rumors of an attempt to bribe one of Emma Hernan‘s clients not to work with her, she said there are no hard feelings between them today.
“We’re in a really good place,” she said of herself and Jason.
As for the alleged bribe, Christine said, “Bless their hearts for trying. But no, that absolutely did not happen. … I watched the show and I was shocked. I was completely shocked.”
Christine was equally shocked by Jason’s failure to communicate with her after the allegations were made.
“He just says, you know, ‘I was going off the information that I was given,’” she recalled. “And I said, ‘Well, I wish you would have called me. I wish you would’ve told me, you know, that you were doing this, and I would’ve talked anything through with you and answered any questions for you.’”
Looking back on her decision to leave the firm, Christine said it was an easy choice because The Oppenheim Group simply wasn’t an environment where people were supportive of her goals.
“I saw a trend change in the future and I needed to meet that trend and I needed to be ahead of the curve,” she explained. “So that’s why I had to start my business. I saw a hole in the market where buyers and sellers were coming to me and saying, you know, ‘Hi, I have all this cryptocurrency and I need to be able to do a transaction.’ … I’m so happy I did it.”
In another interview, Christine said she’s “happy” for Chrishell and G Flip.
“I’m so happy for them,” she said to Us Weekly. “Love is amazing.”
