In the season 5 premiere of Selling Sunset, Emma previews the Nightingale Drive property. The 4,500 sq. ft. home is $8,995,000. 

In the episode, Emma is looking for a strong offer “around $8,500,00.” According to RedFin, the home remains listed at $8,495,000. What’s more, Peter and Emma’s names are both on the listing, which is currently still accepting offers.

Peter Cornell and Christine Quinn were allegedly engaged before 

Though they didn’t mention his name in the Netflix series, Peter became a focus in season 4. In episode 6, Christine claims she and Emma were unknowingly dating Peter simultaneously. Christine also claims she and Peter were engaged when he was dating Emma.

“He knew it was gonna be touched on,” Emma told Us Weekly in December 2021. “[But not] to the level that it went. He kind of heard rumblings of what was going on as we were filming … stuff that was mentioned, and he was just eye-rolling.” 

Emma added: “They were never engaged, he made that very clear. He was laughing when it was mentioned, and everyone knows that. It’s not even negotiable because there’s literally zero percent chance.” According to the Selling Sunset star, Peter wants nothing to do with the Netflix series. 

‘Selling Sunset’s Emma Hernan once said Peter Cornell would ‘like to end up with her’ 

During that same interview with Us Weekly, Emma talked about her split from Peter. “We made the decision to go our separate ways for numerous reasons,” said Emma. “Obviously in life, I feel like you can never say never, but right now at this point, I’m potentially dating other people.” 

In season 5 of Selling Sunset, Emma takes interest in a real estate developer named Micah. But in talking to Us Weekly, Emma implied Peter still wants to pursue a relationship with her.
