'Selling Sunset' Season 5: Brett ropes in Chrishell for $10M listing, girls at office smell favoritism
Chrishell Stause bagged a $10 million listing as the new season of 'Selling Sunset' kicks in, while other girls at the office smell favoritism
The drama is still rolling in! Chrishell Stause received a cold shoulder from some of her coworkers over new business opportunities as Season 5 of Netflix's hit realtor drama 'Selling Sunset' kicks off on April 22.
As the new season opens, Chrishell Stause and her "boss" Jason Oppenheim, confirm their relationship, and the pair received conflicting reactions from those around them. On a trip to Italy in July 2021, Chrishell and Jason made their relationship public. The pair were joined by Mary and her hubby Romain Bonnet, Jason's brother Brett Oppenheim and his girlfriend Tina Louise in the first look at season 5, which featured an aerial picture of the property.
There appears to be no lack of scandal surrounding the workplace romance, and Christine seems to be feeding the flames. While most cast members supported the "J-Shell" relationship, some were eager to share comments that neither Chrishell nor Jason appreciated. Christine Quinn told Daily Pop shortly after the relationship was revealed, "I think it's a very interesting thing. I think it works for them. I think it's very advantageous too. I mean, sh*t, maybe that's why I'm so bad at real estate. Maybe I'm doing it all wrong!" What irked the couple was a comment she made to TMZ in August 2021. Although Christine disputes Chrishell had preferential treatment while dating her boss, she also stated, “The second she walked into the office, it was definitely love at first sight. There were sparks flying, I mean, we all saw it.” This could only suggest that Chrishell, who was married at the time she joined the Oppenheim Group, was not entirely faithful in her marriage to former husband Justin Hartley.
In the middle of such public remarks, Chrishell didn't seem to like the thought of Christine returning to the Oppenheim office after giving birth to her first kid with Christian Richard. This resulted in a furious dispute between the two, with Brett, who was also present with his girlfriend Tina, wondering whether it was their biggest fight to date.
Brett, on the other hand, moved quickly to defuse the situation by offering Chrishell a $10 million listing. Despite Brett's assurances that this was a strictly professional choice that had nothing to do with the fact that she was seeing his brother, this did not sit well with a few at the office. Christine, while sharing her feelings with Maya, said, "I was wondering why I wasn't getting listings, then I was like, Oh yeah. It's cause I'm not f**king my boss." Vanessa, who seemed happy with the Jason-Chrishell relationship, smelt favoritism in this decision and questioned why none of the other girls were considered.
Office drama continues
Everyone returns from their trips looking for a fresh start this season. At the Oppenheim office, we find the cast gossiping. Chrishell and Mary Fitzgerald (who earlier dated Jason) seem to be having a conversation where Chrishell opens up about her relationship with Jason, saying, "We're not criminals. We're not doing anything wrong." Chrishell is barraged with questions about her relationship with the other girls, but as soon as Christine walks in, the whole dynamic of the place shifts.
'Selling Sunset' Season 5 premieres on Friday, April 22, 2022, on Netflix.
