Christine Quinn has emotions, too, even when her “Selling Sunset” conduct makes that simple to neglect typically. Season 5 was a very tough season for The Oppenheim Group’s most divisive actual property agent as her coworkers lastly confronted her over the various shady feedback she had made about them behind their backs. The second went down within the fourth episode of the season simply as Quinn and newcomer Chelsea Lazkani had been exhibiting off a brand new itemizing — which did not sit nicely with Lazkani.
After Quinn walked off crying, Lazkani confronted the opposite girls over what she noticed as bullying. Whereas it is true she did not know the messy backstory behind her new pal’s coworkers out of the blue calling her out for speaking about them to one another and the press, the state of affairs nonetheless did not really feel proper to the British-Nigerian actual property agent. “I’m somebody who has additionally been continuously seen as so robust, or wanted to be so robust as a Black girl,” Lazkani said to E! News in a latest interview. “I am not at all times robust — and he or she does not at all times should be robust.”
Whereas the opposite realtors had been fast to argue with Lazkani, she stood robust in her conviction that it is by no means OK for one particular person to be ganged up on by a big group. Within the episode, she advised the ladies, “Once I hear everybody coming at one particular person, it is giving me bullying. And even when it’s possible you’ll not vibe along with her, and dislike her, while you all come collectively, it is lots.”
Trying again, she now believes the second might have “humanized” Quinn within the eyes of viewers who’ve grown accustomed to the 33-year-old enjoying the position of villain on the present. “I believe for the primary time we really humanize Miss Christine Quinn,” Lazkani mentioned. “We see a susceptible facet to someone that is at all times been seen as so robust.”
All through season 5, Quinn and Lazkani’s bond solely grew, with Quinn advocating for her good friend to affix The Oppenheim Group. Whereas their friendship was nonetheless going robust by the tip of the season, Quinn’s status with the show seems to be up within the air. Within the finale, she failed to point out as much as a gathering along with her bosses, Jason Oppenheim and Mary Fitzgerald, to debate allegations that she supplied certainly one of Emma Hernan’s shoppers $5,000 to not work with the agent. Quinn seemingly responded to the allegations in an April 22 tweet that learn, “half-hour until the launch of #SellingSunset get pleasure from the brand new season and all of its 5,000 faux storylines!”
However whether or not or not Quinn stays with The Oppenheim Group, it appears to be like like Lazkani will proceed to have her again by reminding their coworkers that even somebody as robust as Quinn is not resistant to having her emotions damage.
