‘Selling Sunset’: Christine Quinn Says the Cast All Saw Chemistry Between Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim From the Beginning
Some fans did not see this coming at all, but according to Christine Quinn, Stause and Oppenheim’s chemistry was obvious to co-workers from the beginning.
Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim confirmed their relationship in July 2021
In July, Stause, Oppenheim, and a few cast members went on vacation to Italy. At the end of the month, Stause posted photos in which she and Oppenheim could be seen hugging and kissing each other.
Oppenheim quickly confirmed their relationship. He told People, “Chrishell and I became close friends and it has developed into an amazing relationship. I care about her deeply and we are very happy together.”
The couple debuted their relationship on the red carpet on Aug. 16 at the LA premiere of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”
Christine Quinn says their chemistry was obvious from the beginning
Quinn, who has been at odds with Stause since the first season of Selling Sunset, recently commented on Stause and Oppenheim’s romance to TMZ.
In response to claims that the relationship might not be real, Quinn said, “I think that the second she walked into the office, it was love at first sight… I mean, we all saw it—the way he looked at her when she walked into the office. We were like, ‘Okay, okay!’”
While Quinn does not think their relationship is being faked for the show, she did point out that “the timing is just really convenient.” The cast has been filming seasons 4 and 5, though it is not clear when they will premiere on Netflix.
Cast members don’t think Jason Oppenheim will be playing favorites with Chrishell Stause
On Selling Sunset, Oppenheim has been accused of showing favoritism toward Mary Fitzgerald, his ex-girlfriend. Now that he is dating Stause, there are questions as to whether this would be another conflict in the office.
According to Quinn, Oppenheim has not been showing favoritism toward Stause. She said, “I personally think there’s a lot of favoritism involved. I haven’t seen it personally with Chrishell, but I have seen it with Mary, so I know it does happen.”
Oppenheim and Fitzgerald have always denied favoritism happening in the office, and Fitzgerald does not believe this will occur with Stause.
“I would secretly be a little excited if I could finally pass the ‘Mary gets favored’ baton to someone else,” she joked to People, “All joking aside, there is and won’t be favoritism inside the brokerage… Most of us are all very close and consider each other family, so it will bring us closer together if anything.”
