'Selling Sunset' star Chrishell Stause says working on the reality show has been 'a learning process'
In a chat with MEA Worldwide, Chrishell Stause, one of the main cast members, dished on the details of Season 2 and what makes it different from the first
Netflix has invaded the unscripted content space and how. After airing maiden seasons of 'Too Hot To Handle' and 'Love Is Blind,' the streaming giant has returned with Season 2 of 'Selling Sunset.' Revolving around the plush lives of a group of realtors who are tasked with the responsibility of selling houses to affluent clients, this one has enough and more fodder for reality TV lovers.
In a chat with MEA Worldwide, Chrishell Stause, one of the main cast members, dished on what viewers can expect from the season and what makes it different from the last and more. "The show is coming back bigger and better," she said and explained that's because the houses are going to get bigger this year and there's going to an addition to the existing team of The Oppenheim Group. That alone is enough to invite drama because of all the money and reputation that is on the line. But Stause elaborated that it's also compact spaces and fierce competition that add to the pressure-cooker situations viewers witness on TV.
Over Season 1, the ladies built healthy relationships, which, Stause hopes, will not go downhill in the latest season. "This has been such a learning process so it has really brought us closer as a group which is nice." Despite all the camaraderie, she does tease more than quite a few b****y moments this season. But that is not just the only aspect that makes 'Selling Sunset' what it is today. Chrishell recalled an embarrassing story from one of her open houses. The owner had forgotten to inform her that the property had been rented out on Airbnb. "I walked into a property to prepare for my open house and I walked in on two men very much enjoying their afternoon. All parties were mortified but it made for an unforgettable story. I laugh about it now," she shared.
It may make for a laughing matter but it's tougher to shoot for reality shows than people realize, especially when it comes to relationships. Stause is wary of what is at stake when one opens up his/ her personal life for millions of viewers to judge. When Season 1 ended, it ended on a rough note between Stause and Christine Quinn. It's only natural that the heat would pick from where the two left things.
"I wish the only temper tantrums that happened were the ones you see on camera. I have been working on sets for the last 15 years and with people known to be difficult and yet have never had an issue," Stause said implying that it's all okay with her until people forget basic etiquette. "Her being bigger than life and bringing funny snark to the show I would root on all day long. But you lose me when that bleeds over into a lack of basic etiquette of how you treat people whether they are in front of the camera or not," the star added.
Netflix is streaming all-new episodes of 'Selling Sunset' Season 2.
