Selling Sunset on Netflix has been a runway hit. To be perfectly honest, I almost skipped it. After all, I have Real Housewives and all the Million Dollar Listings to keep me happy. I wasn’t even into the first episode. Cut to me spending all weekend in bed binge watching all three seasons.
One of the draws of Selling Sunset was just how easily each
character cast member emerged to played their part on the show. And one person who definitely knew her role on the show was the cast villain, Davina Potratz. Not only did she stir up constant drama, but she also had the nerve to list her age in her bio as 30. Nice try, Davina.
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.
Longtime Vanderpump Rules fans are already aware that Scheana Shay has hooked up with John Mayer. However, there’s a lot more to the story. In fact, Scheana met him while he was dating Jennifer Aniston, who she met as well when she was working at a members only bar called Grand Havana Room pre-SUR.
Stacie Adams, who you might remember by her maiden name Stacie Hall, used to work there too. If neither of those names ring a bell, you might just recognize her as “Stacie the bartender” from the original run of The Hills. She’s involved in this story too. There’s even a Selling Sunset tie-in to this whole thing.
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.
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.
