Christine Quinn of the immensely popular series, Selling Sunset, is reported to have left the show.
Seen as the ‘villain’ of the Netflix real estate reality TV show that follows the agents of a flashy LA-based organisation, the 33-year-old has said that she will not be returning for seasons six and seven of the forthcoming show. First reported by TMZ on Wednesday, August 17th, the decision is believed to have been a mutual one between Quinn, Netflix and the show’s producers, who regretted seeing the star leave the show.
Speaking about the exit of the star, a source that is close to the show told Page Six: “Her goals are far bigger than playing a villain on an ensemble reality series. She can’t wait to start the next chapter of her career and show the world who she truly is”. Quinn was a controversial figure in the latest series of the show after she was accused of bribing clients from a rival realtor group in order to steal them away from the competition.
Passionately denying the allegations, in May Quinn told People Magazine, “I would never bribe a client. I’ve never bribed a client. I don’t need to bribe a client, because they’ll work with me organically”.
Seen as one of the most successful original Netflix shows in the streaming service’s history, Selling Sunset has amassed a significant following across the world who tune in season-upon-season to experience the drama of the exuberant real-estate company.
