Christine Quinn has opened up about receiving death threats over Selling Sunset.
The 31-year-old, who recently married Christian Richard in a stunning wedding, admitted in a recent interview that she was more ‘reserved’ when it came to filming season two because she was ‘scared’ of the backlash.
She told People: “We definitely were a little more reserved going into season two.
“I was scared. I was a little scared.
“The first few episodes of season two, the editors were like, ‘Where's the other Christine? Where's Christine?’
“I’m like, ‘Well, that Christine gets death threats’.
“People are so invested in the show, and they see what they see and just think I'm this crazy person.
“It's just unfortunate. People are weird.”
However, Christine went on to say she does ‘love’ to be the ‘show villain’.
She added: “I guess I am the quote-unquote ‘show villain,’ but I love it.
“I think it's funny and I think people enjoy it at the end of the day, people that love me really love me. When I'm on camera, I have fun with it.
“Whether it's perceived well, I don't know, but I'm really just being myself. I do have a heart of gold underneath that, and I think sometimes with television, it's really hard to see all the elements of a human being on a television show.”
