Are the Stars of “Selling Sunset” Real Agents? Here’s What the Cast Had to Say
“Selling Sunset” is officially back for season seven. However, the cast is looking a little different this season. Chrishell Stause, Bre Tiesi, Mary Fitzgerald, Emma Hernan, Amanza Smith, Davina Potratz, Chelsea Lazkani, and Jason and Brett Oppenheim are all returning. Longtime cast member Heather Rae El Moussa is also featured in the new episodes, but it’s unclear how much. And in case you still had doubts, yes, the cast are, in fact, licensed real estate agents.
After Chrissy Teigen questioned the validity of the show’s cast in a series of tweets back in 2020, The Oppenheim Group agents – including Jason, Stause, Fitzgerald, and Rae El Moussa, shut down Teigen’s claims. In turn, they also used Teigen’s tweets as an opportunity to further promote the show.
The tweet in particular that had a lot of people talking was the one where Teigen stated that she has never seen any of the cast and neither has her real estate agent. “I will say, I look at LA real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people lol either have our agents, who I have obsessively asked,” Teigen wrote.
Jason responded, saying he doesn’t know her agent either, writing, “Chrissy, thanks for watching our show! Regarding your agent’s knowledge of members of my team, I respectfully don’t know him either although that doesn’t mean he isn’t successful and didn’t just sell you a stunning home in Weho (seriously, I love your new house).”
On The Oppenheim Group website (which is a legit real estate brokerage, by the way), all the cast members are listed as real estate agents, with Oppenheim as the president and owner. Oh, and in case you haven’t heard yet, Brett Oppenheim has since left to start his own brokerage, so that’s why he’s not listed on the site anymore. Keep reading to see how the rest of the cast, including producer Adam DiVello, responded to Teigen’s statements.
