The Netflix debut show Selling Sunset released its first season early 2019 and continues to deliver seasons through to 2021. Selling Sunset grabs viewers by broadcasting million dollar homes while sorting through their love life, family, and personal dramas.

Selling Sunset is about a group of elite real estate agents named the Oppenheim Group. The Oppenheim Group is a professional real estate brokerage serving buyers and sellers of luxury properties in Los Angeles and Orange County. The group is led by the founder Jason Oppenheim followed by his twin brother Brett Oppenheim.

Selling Sunset premiered March of 2019. The season one cast included the Oppenheims and stars Mary Fitzgerald, Christine Quinn, Davina Portratz, Heather Young, and Maya Vander. Sea- son one also introduced new real estate agent and cast member Chrishell Stause.

Real estate agent Quinn brings along lots of drama and stubbornness, no matter where she goes. Her companion and co-agent Portratz also brings along her strong willed energy and tries to start drama with the girls whenever she can. Throughout the seasons, the most drama-filled relationship is between Quinn and Stause, starting all the way back in season one through to season four. Their conflict started with a conversation between Stause and Portratz, leading to Quinn and Fitzgerald. This led to name calling, exclusionary invites, and offensive  questioning.

Fitzgerald is ex of the Oppenheim group founder J. Oppenheim, making Fitzgerald very involved in the business and possibly some  favoritism from J. Oppenheim himself. Quinn’s need for drama also ruined her own long term friendship with Fitzgerald.

Season three was filled with tons of shocking and jaw dropping scenes and unexpected turn overs. Starting with Stause and her husband Justin Hartly, actor from The Young and The Restless, surprise divorce. Stause claimed that it was unexpected and all that had happened was an argument earlier in the day, but not nearly as bad for it to lead to divorce.

In season three Heather Rae was hinting to her boyfriend Tarek El-Moussa about a wedding and getting a ring. Surely into season four Rae announced her new engagement and showed her engagement ring to the other realtors and viewers of the show.

With the season ending, Quinn and her husband Christian Richard, threw a lavish wedding where the bride wore black and all the guests wore white. Stause brought herself to attend Quinn’s wedding while still going through the emotions of her recent divorce. Everything was going well until Portratz stepped in and told everyone that we can’t necessarily give Stause all this sympathy when we haven’t heard Hartley’s side of the divorce. Hitting an extreme soft spot, Stause stormed out of the wedding due to Portratz’s insensitive and unfriendly comment.
