Netflix and Selling Sunset really broke the mold in reality real estate TV. This series is a nice switch up from other longstanding shows like Million Dollar Listing. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if you haven’t watched this Selling Sunset yet, get on it! The primarily female cast swept people away with not one, but TWO season drops during the pandemic. A binge-watcher’s dream. The show is also set to begin filming season four this spring. You still have time to catch up!
Fans can expect to see Christine Quinn, Chrishell Stause, Heather Rae Young, Amanza Smith, and Mary Fitzgerald back on their screens next season. In the meantime, the women have been keeping the drama flowing with uncomfortable break-ups, Vanderpump Rules shenanigans, and commentary on The Firm. Did I mention you need this show in your life?
Ahead of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, Bethenny Frankel
grasped for relevancy ranted about Meghan.
Bethenny told the Duchess of Sussex, “Cry me a river” in addition to calling out “the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, w tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 m for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals. ” Among other things…. Well, those remarks garnered a lot of attention, which is what Bethenny wanted. Obviously.
Chrishell Stause, who stars on Selling Sunset, actually found love when she competed on the most recent season of Dancing With The Stars. Chrishell was partnered with Gleb Savchenko. The duo had chemistry, but no romantic sparks flew.
Fun fact: Gleb was Lisa Vanderpump’s pro partner when she waltzed around the ballroom in Season 16. And Lisa had an “emotional affair” with Gleb. TMI, Lisa.
Netflix’s Selling Sunset is the perfect pandemic binge watch. They dropped Season 2 in May of 2020 and blessed us all with Season 3 just three months later. This show is like a combination of a Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, and Million Dollar Listing. Give me all the co-worker drama, ridiculous amounts of wealth, and a splash of home design porn. Thank you.
An iconic scene to set the stage, if you haven’t watched yet, was Christine Quinn’s ‘Botox and Burgers’ open house. Christine has put the show on the map with her pettiness but also fashion that won’t quit. She claims to spend $1k/day on glam for the show. Unfortunately, it looks like Christine’s dreams of becoming a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills may be on hold. But for a good reason this time!
If you haven’t binged Netflix’s Selling Sunset yet, what exactly have you been doing? How can I describe it? It’s sort of like if Million Dollar Listing and The Hills had a baby who loved to watch Vanderpump Rules. Interestingly, Scheana Shay has already publicly started shit with one of the stars from the show, Crishell Stause.
Selling Sunset features some of the hawtest and baddest bitches in real estate. There are cliques, the bosses have clear favorites, and the houses are TO DIE for. Some viewers compared the show to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Eh, for the most part, I don’t see that. There is, however, one baddie who stands above the rest. She deserves elevation to the highest rank in the reality TV world. A promotion to Housewife! And that is Christine Quinn.
On Selling Sunset, there is a very clear narrative: Christine Quinn is the designated “villain” (even though she’s the most entertaining one on the show) and Chrishell Stause is the protagonist that we are supposed to root for. On the most recent season, Chrishell said she was blindsided when her husband This is Us star Justin Hartley filed for divorce.
She claimed that he told her that he filed via text message and then 40 minutes later it was front-page news. Most likely, the truth is somewhere in the middle, in regard to just how surprised Chrishell was by her split. Now add this random crossover into the mix: Vanderpump Rules OG Scheana Shay used to be friends with Chrishell and she has some insight on her split from Justin and some tea on why Chrishell (allegedly) ditched their friendship.
