When Netflix came out Sunset sale, latest project from The hills Lead producer Adam DiVello and one of the first streaming networks to break into reality television, in early 2019 it did so without much fanfare. But it didn’t take long for that to change. Of course not: It’s a bunch of Los Angeles glitzy enthusiasts trying push real estate while also pushing each other away from their six-inch Louboutins. And a 5 foot 9 blonde bomb instantly grabs the viewer’s attention: Christine Quinn. With a stunning array of designers and an endless supply of nimble monolids, Quinn is out the gate as Real Estate Barbie is for the genre. She immediately provided the kind of GIF ability one craves from reality stars, and stepped into the role of the resident villain without hesitation, a part of which she accepted throughout. Emmy’s . Nominated Show run.

But as Quinn, 33 years old, said first Sunset sale’NS fourth sean release, she just does what she has to do for the sake of good television. “We watched episode eight, and we didn’t have any drama at all, and the producers were nervous because we needed a season finale,” she explained of the show’s change of direction. process during the production of the first part. What can be a dull look inside Southern California real estate quickly turns into a gripping, dramatic movie thanks to her shadowy confessionals, pointless confrontations and ‘Botox and burgers’ parties. “I said, ‘You know what? I get this, because if we don’t get another season thanks to boring bitches, you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘ So I fell on my sword and I did what I had to do. Whether it’s calling Chrishell Stause “fake” or telling Heather Rae Young they’re not friends, Quinn has become known for going up against other women in the high-profile real estate brokerage. . Oppenheim group to “stand out,” which she believes is the most important aspect of appearing on a TV show. “People can be like, Oh my gosh, she’s such an asshole. But those are the things that make you memorable.”

Within minutes of Zooming in with her, it became clear that Quinn was the same person on screen when she was off. (I mentioned Quinn was logging in from a private resort in Bora Bora, lounging by the sea in a Gucci gold chain necklace, her long blonde hair blowing in the wind as she Yep.) When asked if she’d put a certain character on camera, she made it clear that she really “melted down” the show. . “My sense of humour has always been – how I say it. I call people bullshit, and I handle things very well,” she said. However, to be honest, she really is a stay-at-home person who doesn’t wear makeup when she’s not on camera.

Quinn is undeniably the most talked about aspect of the show, with its lavish parties, daring outfits and unbelievable honesty. She received many compliments from celebrity fans like Mindy Kaling for, as she puts it, “just being myself in a world of people afraid to be who they really are.” Quinn’s current Zoom wallpaper is today a trademark for the reality TV star, but it’s a far cry from the Dallas suburbs where she grew up. Long before she cruised around West Hollywood in a bright yellow Lamborghini, she worked at Sonic, Taco Bell, and Walmart. “I had a really, really running series of jobs,” she said. “I’ve lived so many lives, and people will ride their horses to the grocery store in the town where I live.”

Not surprisingly, Quinn left everything to come to the bright lights of Hollywood to pursue an acting career. She eventually got tired of the “dumb blonde” roles she took on in projects like Shark Night 3D, 2 . hot tub time machineand an episode of Drop Dead Diva, so she turned to real estate and scored the camera role of a lifetime: herself. “I would love to just be myself and be on television,” she winked. “I’m not going to be a washed up 37-year-old opera actress on Days of Our Lives, there are a few guests here and there. That’s not me.” As someone who has always loved performing and making people laugh (even if it cost a lot of money to his co-stars), reality TV felt like a natural transition. missed the chance to throw a ball at her co-stars, both in the show’s oversaturated confession scenes and in this very conversation, but she admits it’s part of the job — a place but your performance is determined by how you stir the pot and not how you make friends. headphones to drown out the resort’s booming Rihanna tunes. undershirt. That is It’s really what I look forward to the most when I go to work every day. ”

Sunset saleThe latest episodes of the episode focus on the growing divide between Quinn and her co-workers, many of whom feel she has burned irreparable bridges and are eager to see her go. But when their enemies counterattack, her ambitious agents take the TV show – and life – too seriously. “I always think I’m really having fun, and even when I get criticized, I always think it’s coming from a good place,” she said, tucking her hair and holding out her giant 20-carat engagement ring. outside. “I think people can handle criticism because I know I can do it myself, and you’ll see this season people are saying crazy things about me, and I’m like , Why are you obsessed with me?, Mariah Carey style. There are some people who still don’t understand the form and how to assign. “Considering the barometer for reality TV success based on how much drama you can deliver, Quinn seems refreshingly self-aware. This is someone who knows what the show’s fans want and keeps them in mind when speaking. She clearly believes in her future Sunset sale will be determined by her ruffles rather than her chemistry with her co-stars.

Quinn took a step back from filming this season to give birth to her 6-month-old son, Christian, and in her place, fans will meet again with the new cast of Emma Hernan, who happens to be his wife. unmarried of Quinn’s ex-fiance, the details of which are debated over the course of ten episodes. Though news of the casting would anger most people, Quinn tried to take it in, knowing it was the best move for the show. “I’ve played ball, I’m ready to play the game,” she confessed. “They are trying for a plot and bless their hearts. Do you think I want to sit there and talk about a relationship from ten years ago? No, but what do I want to give people surname want.” Despite standing on the sidelines with the show’s central group of friends, she believes they all have great professional relationships and feels secure in her friendships outside of the series. When people say, ‘Why don’t you hang out with the group?’ Because I don’t drink Kool-Aid,” she smirked. We’re done filming.”

Now a married mother of someone in her late thirties, Quinn no longer needed to defend herself against her teammates. “I’m Libra, so I’m good at communicating, and whenever there’s a problem, it’s easy for me to assess the situation,” she said as she adjusted. The top of the tube is printed with a blue and white column shape, studded with stones. “I was actually supposed to be a lawyer, but when you’re dealing with low IQ people, you just call it quit and mine. I really don’t owe anyone an explanation. I really don’t owe anyone.” The gratuitous jabs at her co-stars feel like part of Quinn’s act, but you can’t help but laugh at her unfiltered attitude. With the show’s other agents focused on closing deals and building relationships, there’s an almost endearing quality to Quinn’s relentless efforts to provide entertainment to any at anyone’s expense. It reminds me of when the most popular girl in school let you, a fat clumsy gay guy, read the Burn Book to get to know her. real think about the rest of Squad A. She allows you to spread the word of what you’ve learned and even though you know you shouldn’t, you can’t resist the invitation to bid. hers.

The latest episodes point to Quinn potentially exiting the Oppenheim Corporation — and presumably the show as a whole — but she promises she’ll appear in every episode of the fifth season that’s filmed and plans to stay as long. they still have her. “The only reason I show up to work is for my fans, to inspire people and let someone go, Wow, I see myself in that person. I love how she has the ability to talk back to people and not care,“She admitted. “That’s really important to me. It’s not because I enjoy working with these bitches. ”

With a book on the way (appropriately titled How to be a B*tch Boss), Quinn is ready for fans to discover more about her outside Sunset sale. While the fourth season saw her share rare moments of vulnerability while discussing her difficult birth, she was still hesitant to break her tough look first. lens. “There were a lot of days when I didn’t want to show up to practice – that was too hard,” she said as the sun hit her face. “When you work on a reality show, you have to deal with things three times: You do it in a scene, you talk about it in an interview, and then the fans rewatch it and you deal with that temperature. comes with that. That’s why Quinn is so excited to open up about her past herself, without worrying about how the producers might “Edward Scissorhands” her life and experiences. “There was a perception that I was always this way, but confidence is something I learned,” she said. “I wasn’t dealt the best cards growing up and I had to grow up fast. I left my parents’ house at 17, I went to jail on my 17th birthday for possession of marijuana…it’s easy for me to be strong in business and strong for people, but that It’s really through my experiences that got me here today, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. “

The perfect hustler hopes to one day have a TV show of her own, whether it’s for a more reality show, a host gig, or a move into scripted comedy. We think about potential program ideas for her, including “RuPaul’s Drag Race meeting Probationer“The concept suggests she’s looking for a personal assistant or perhaps the next Christine Quinn. I bring it up a 2013 YouTube clip of her and her roommate while performing a song – pretty good – which she said was an audition for the series before Connie Britton Nashville. “I’m a really, really great singer, and that’s what nobody really knows about me,” she says truthfully. “If it was up to me, I would be like Lady Gaga and just do it all!”
