As Christine Quinn exits the Netflix series for good, Selling Sunset’s Jason Oppenheim addresses the report

Christine Quinn, a prominent Los Angeles estate agent featured in Netflix’s Selling Sunset, confirmed earlier this year she had left the Oppenheim Group in order to launch her own cryptocurrency brokerage. In turn, questions arose as to whether she had been kicked out of the cast as well, further complicated by Quinn’s contradictory statements on the matter.

She is indeed departing for good, according to the latest reports, and her old supervisor/co-star Jason Oppenheim is addressing the issue. Multiple outlets have reported of late, including Deadline, that the drama series’ Seasons 6 and 7 are currently filming without Christine Quinn.

The 33-year-old hasn’t officially confirmed the news, but TMZ caught up with Jason Oppenheim in the wake of the renewed hoopla, and he said he isn’t “involved” in casting decisions. But he made it clear that he fully supports his former employee, even if she’s not working on Selling Sunset anymore. According to him,

The exit rumors were confirmed by Jason Oppenheim. According to the outlet, he keeps in touch with the famous agent via text – even complimenting her on her recent modeling gigs. He further revealed how “cool” it would be if Christine Quinn appeared on Selling Sunset in the future. Perhaps as a “friend of the show” in the same vein as the Real Housewives franchise? 

At the time, Quinn herself stated that there had been ongoing discussions about her appearing in Season 6, even as a competitive broker to Oppenheim. So maybe she will guest star, or maybe she won’t.

The series’ storylines may not survive without her, however, as a prominent character in the series. Throughout the last five seasons, Christine Quinn has leaned heavily into the drama and the title of chief villain, with most of the other characters being content to let her do so. It is possible that Quinn’s Season 5 protege, Chelsea Lazkani, will fill those shoes, but not right away…

Several members of the cast of the luxury real estate agents will be played by Nicole Young and Bre Tiesi, according to Deadline. In addition, she had her first child with Nick Cannon recently – his eighth – so that will be interesting in and of itself. According to Jason Oppenheim, Selling Sunset will benefit greatly from this new blood, saying:

Despite avoiding labeling anyone the “villain,” he hinted that there are some “interesting dynamics” at play.  As it stands, Jason Oppenheim is going into Season 6 with now two ex-girlfriends on his staff after splitting with Chrishell Stause last season.

Meanwhile, Stause and Heather Rae Young, their co-stars from the show, have moved on with new romances, and Heather Rae Young is pregnant with her first child with Tarek El Moussa. Overall, the show will have quite a lot of “dynamics” to deal with without Christine Quinn.

The actor said he’s excited about the prospect of showcasing “a ton” of new, flashy real estate properties and high-rolling sales in the new era of Selling Sunset. We all watch this Emmy-nominated reality series for more than 30% of the reasons. Hopefully, we’ll find out how Christine Quinn’s departure impacts that soon enough. In 2022, Netflix will begin streaming Selling the OC on August 24 as part of their TV schedule!
