If you haven’t finished your pandemic Selling Sunset binge, what exactly have you been doing? I understand there are several other fish to fry, however, this one should at least be added to that list! Seriously. To sum up, get it done before the new seasons drop. I mean, have you ever seen cross-reality-show real estate drama? You wont regret it.
The show features several boss bitches selling high-end real estate in the Los Angeles area. In addition there are contentious divorces, ample Botox, home decor porn, and the iconic Christine Quinn, Whether you see Christine as an ice queen or HBIC, she’s definitely found herself in the Selling Sunset spotlight in recent months. Unsurprising, since she wrapped the most recent season of the show with her legendary $1,000,000 Gothic winter wedding.
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.
It looks like there is a war brewing between two of my favorite real estate shows, Million Dollar Listing LA and Selling Sunset! And the spark that lit the flame is none other than Andy Cohen of course. Perhaps Andy is a bit jealous that Netflix is stealing some of Bravo’s thunder in the realm of reality TV real estate shows?
Most Bravo fans know about Million Dollar Listing, but if you haven’t checked out Selling Sunset on Netflix yet, grab your popcorn and get started! Who wouldn’t want to watch twin brothers Jason Oppenheim and Brett Oppenheim dominate Hollywood Hills real estate with a group of (mostly) blonde real estate agents who only wear six inch stilettos? It’s glossy and fun, but the cast of Million Dollar Listing LA doesn’t seem to think so.
Netflix’s Selling Sunset is basically the love child of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Million Dollar Listing. The show follows the female real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group, a luxury real estate company in Los Angeles, California. And, of course, there’s drama with the ladies in between showing listings… and sometimes while they’re showing listings.
Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn is one of the standout cast members and she actually has an interest in joining another reality TV show.
