'Selling Sunset' star Christine Quinn has parted ways with the Oppenheim Group after being part of it for five seasons. By the end of Season 5, Quinn was shown to have major issues with the brokerage but there wasn't much clarity on whether or not she would continue to be associated with them.

Putting an end to that line of the query, Quinn confirmed that she was no longer a part of the Oppenheim Group, with a source revealing that it was her decision to leave the brokerage. The 33-year-old Texan had a rocky Season 5, during which she was shown to have clashed with her fellow agents. In fact, her fellow mates had also admitted that their bond with the 'How to Be a Boss B*tch' author had deteriorated. Quinn was also accused by Emma Hernan of bribing one of her clients to no longer work with her. She declined to be present when Jason Oppenheim and Mary Fitzgerald attempted to address the allegations, making things worse.

Ahead of the Season 5 premiere, Quinn alleged that the show had "fake storylines," tweeting "30 minutes till the launch of #SellingSunset enjoy the new season and all of its 5,000 fake storylines!"

Speaking to Forbes right after the Season 5 finale, Quinn disclosed that she chose to leave the Oppenheim Group over its hesitancy to embrace cryptocurrency. Quinn opined that most brokerages "don't know anything about crypto, don't know how to do it, and don't understand how reliable and how safe it actually is."

She went on to reveal RealOpen, her venture with husband Christian Dumontet. RealOpen, according to Forbes, "bridges the gap between digital assets and physical goods and allows anyone, anywhere to purchase or sell a home via crypto." RealOpen also happens to be the first company to function this way.

Meanwhile, fans of 'Selling Sunset' seemed to have quite a bit to say about Quinn's decision to leave the Oppenheim Group. "So I binged watched #sellingsunsets5 in one night and all I can say is @XtineQuinn, your arms must be sore… from carrying the whole series (yet again!). You literally make the show . #ChristineQuinn #SellingSunset #Queen #bosslady," a tweet read. "Don’t know if I even want to bother with the reunion if @XtineQuinn isn’t in it. Don’t think I can tolerate an entire episode talking about Empanadas and Oreos… #SellingSunset #reunion #ChristineQuinn #SellingSunset5," read another.

"Divas. Please can we just all appreciate that there would be NO Selling Sunset without @XtineQuinn she IS the moment, she IS the main character, at least acknowledge the IMPACT. I too would not have attended the reunion, she's exhausted from carrying those hoes. #ChristineQuinn," a fan opined. Another seconded, tweeting "Am watching #SellingSunset AND I am team #ChristineQuinn like she is the IT girl in the team , and I really don't like Emma idk she is beautiful but I don't like her personality".

'Selling Sunset' filmed its first reunion recently and it is tell-all in nature but Christine Quinn wasn't a part of it as she had tested positive for Covid-19. "Out of caution for cast and crew, she did not attend the reunion," said Quinn's representative. She was given an opportunity to appear virtually but she wasn't in any condition to do so.

Season 5 of 'Selling Sunset' is currently streaming on Netflix and the reunion is set to drop on May 6.
