Christine Quinn Missed the “Selling Sunset” Reunion – Here's Why
After five drama-filled seasons, “Selling Sunset” is holding its first-ever reunion special next month, and fans are eager to catch up on all the lingering drama with the Oppenheim Group agents. On April 25, Netflix teased the reunion with a cast photo featuring every star except one: Christine Quinn. The same day, People reported that she missed the taping after testing positive for COVID. Her rep told the publication, “Out of an abundance of caution for the cast and crew, she did not attend the reunion.”
However, on April 26, TMZ shared a photo of Quinn on a film set just three days after her positive COVID test result. (For reference, the CDC recommends that those who test positive self-isolate for at least five days.) Castmate Chrishell Stause quickly called out Quinn’s seemingly contradictory reason for skipping the reunion, replying to TMZ’s article on Twitter with a GIF of Maury Povich reciting his signature phrase: “The lie-detector test determined that was a lie.”
The two cast members have never gotten along, but their relationship took a turn in season four of “Selling Sunset” after Quinn allegedly planted fabricated stories about Stause’s love life in the press.
Fans are speculating that Quinn’s absence from the upcoming reunion could be due to the buildup of tension between her and the other cast members this season. The season five finale shows Quinn’s future at the Oppenheim Group to be up in the air, and it’s unclear whether the reunion will shed light on where she stands, since she won’t be present to speak for herself. “Selling Sunset”‘s reunion special premieres on May 6.
