Selling Sunset fans want to know why Christine Quinn left The Oppenheim Group and, as a result, quit the Netflix series.
Christine Quinn officially left The Oppenheim Group last year, therefore quitting the Netflix series that made the brokerage famous, Selling Sunset. Christine started her own real estate business in 2022, and now Selling Sunset viewers want to know what this means for the show and The Oppenheim Group's future – and whether she was actually fired from the company.
Selling Sunset series six is out now, a whole year after the final dramatic episode of series five, with fans left guessing whether Christine still worked at The Oppenheim Group after she skipped a disciplinary meeting with Jason following Emma Hernan’s claim she bribed a seller with $5,000 to not work with her anymore.

However, Christine did brand the show's storylines 'fake' just as series five came out on Netflix.
In one episode Christine admitted she’d like to open her own brokerage, and days after season five dropped she and husband Christian Richard announced their new property business.

They predict their venture will ‘revolutionise’ the housing market by making use of cryptocurrency.
With Christine’s new company and the scathing remarks her co-stars, such as Amanza Smith and Heather El Moussa, have made about her on the new series – does this mean Christine has left The Oppenheim Group and why did she leave Selling Sunset?
Christine's boss Jason Oppenheim confirmed she no longer works at The Oppenheim Group after she was accused of bribing a client.
During the Selling Sunset series 5 reunion, which Christine was absent from, Jason explained Christine was yet to discuss the situation with them but that he'd welcome her back to the brokerage 'if she changes her behaviour.'
He told the reunion's host Tan France: "We've texted and we haven't really addressed this situation. I mean, she hasn't reached out to talk about it. I know that she has some thoughts on it.
"Right now, there's not a place for her at the Oppenheim Group. In the future, if she takes real estate seriously, if I can get an understanding of her perspective on things, if she changes her behaviour, if she brings in a big listing... There's a lot of reasons where I would consider her having a place at the Oppenheim Group but I have to say that right now, there isn't a place."
Christine's name is also no longer listed among the other agents on the company's website.
However, it looks like she's on a business venture of her own after setting up her new property company with her husband.
She revealed in one of her last episodes of Selling Sunset: “I’m just kind of thinking these days. I'm not desperate for a job. I'm intelligent, I can start my own brokerage. I can be a broker. I mean if Davina can do it, I can do it! I want to work for myself—be my own independent boss.”
And when she announced her new company Christine wrote on Instagram: “Why work for someone else when you can be your own CEO?” backing up her plans to be her own boss.
“My Boss b**** manifesto is don’t STOP until you are the Boss of your own life. YOU and only you control your storyline,” she added.
Meanwhile, over on Twitter Selling Sunset fans are divided over whether Christine should stay on the show following her continued beef with her co-stars.
Christine has officially left Selling Sunset after quitting The Oppenheim Group at the start of 2022. Insiders told TMZ Christine and bosses at the Netflix show made a 'mutual decision' over her exit.
Instead, Christine will focus on her own business, modelling and other ventures. Well, she does have over 4 million Instagram followers...
The 34-year-old has a deal with IMG Models and has been making personal appearances at industry functions.
No, Christine doesn't make an appearance in the latest series of Selling Sunset, as it seems she's quit the agency and the series for good.
Season six of Selling Sunset filmed after Christine had quit the company.
However, Christine became close friends with agent Chelsea in season five, so viewers are hopeful it's not the last we've seen of the blonde bombshell on the show.
Let the green juice-filled gossip dates commence.
