“Selling Sunset”‘s Jason Oppenheim Says His Ex-Girlfriends Are the “Closest Friends” in His Life
Netflix’s “Selling Sunset” is nominally a real estate show, but it’s really more about the drama between the realtors at the Oppenheim Group than it is about luxury houses. In season six of the reality show, which premiered on May 19, there’s one man at the center of a lot of that drama, even if he’s rarely on screen: Jason Oppenheim. Oppenheim is the president and founder of the Oppenheim Group, and he acts as the big boss during episodes of “Selling Sunset.” But in season six, major drama involves three women he previously dated: Nicole Young, Mary Fitzgerald, and Chrishell Stause. Meanwhile, Oppenheim is happily jet-setting with his girlfriend, Marie-Lou Nürk, for most of the season.
Oppenheim, 46, was born and raised in California. He was a lawyer before he turned his focus to real estate, in 2010. Oppenheim is famously close to his exes, telling Tudum in 2022, “My ex-girlfriends are my closest friends in my life. Chrishell is certainly included in that too. Like Mary, I love her and I have so much respect for her.” He added that he thinks going from lovers to friends is natural because the love you feel for someone doesn’t go away after a breakup. “At some point, you get over the breakup and then you’re left with the friendship and the love that you had in a relationship,” he said.
In the same article, Fitzgerald called Oppenheim “the most loyal guy I think I’ve ever met.” “[Some] people truly deserve to be fired, [but] he has such a big heart. I don’t think that comes across as much on the show because he’s a boss. But he’s the most generous and loving person,” she added.
Here’s what we know about Oppenheim’s past relationships – and his current relationship with Nürk.
