Who is Christine Quinn's ex? Details on Peter Cornell will SHOCK you
Let's admit it, shall we? 'Selling Sunset' Season 4 was two things this year, or maybe three. First - trash-talk about how Christine Quinn has been the b*tch to everyone and how she needs to be avoided like the plague and second was her ex-boyfriend who she was seen shedding tears over. For the uninitiated, Quinn claimed that her ex (he wasn't identified the whole season) cheated on her with Emma Hernan many years ago. She further said that co-star Mary Fitzgerald and Jason Oppenheim went on to be great friends with her which contributed to the deterioration of her friendship with the former. Now the man who "cheated" on Quinn has been identified and the details are shocking.
Before diving any further let's go over a few things said about him in the season again. Spoiler Alert! Stop reading here if you're yet to watch the episodes. Quinn has been replaced by Emma Hernan as she takes time to raise Baby C. Hernan confirms she was dating someone Quinn was with but there was no overlap. “I was leaving the gym with who I thought was my boyfriend and she pulled up with her friend and was like ‘Who the f–k’ is this?’ and started screaming, ‘This is my boyfriend.’” Quinn also claimed on the season that the man proposed to her and in the next two months he went down on one knee for Hernan but this part of the story definitely has holes as she later claims in the other episodes that her ex dated Heather Rae Young too before proposing to Hernan.

Who is Christine Quinn's ex-boyfriend?
The man that Quinn claimed she "caught red-handed" with Hernan some years ago has been identified as Peter Cornell. As shocking as it might sound for those who watched the season, Cornell is a part of the Oppenheim Group, but he's not involved with real estate at all. His LinkedIn profile mentions he serves as the Director for Oppenheim's Sports and Entertainment division and he has held the position for seven years, according to US Magazine. His bio on Oppenheim's website reads, “As a realtor and the Director of the Sports & Entertainment Division of The Oppenheim Group, Peter brings purpose, vision and boundless energy to each and every client and transaction.
"As a seasoned real estate investor and developer, former professional athlete and NBA player agent, Peter’s multifaceted approach to marketing, negotiating and closing is both fresh and effective.” The description continued, "An innate networker, a believer that a small conversation can lead to a game-changing deal, Peter casts a net that reaches across the globe, allowing him to access resources and relationships he has developed in the worlds of sports, entertainment and real estate. In all pursuits, he applies his focused, passionate work ethic, his continual market research, and his listening and facilitating skills — all key components in making moves in a fluid, evolving Los Angeles real estate market.”
Peter Cornell was on 'Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles'
Cornell does not work for the real estate wing, however, he could be a mean agent if he wanted to. According to his Zillow profile, he sold six properties in the past year and has several multi-million listings currently that are available to purchase or rent. Being an agent didn't give him any screen time on 'Selling Sunset' so far but he was on an episode of 'Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles' even before the Netflix show was made. The current season saw the women on 'SS' working with a number of celebrity clients including French Montana, Alesso, and Simu Liu. Similarly, Cornell has an impressive roster as well and has worked with Liu, Taye Diggs, Kris Humphries amongst others.
Lastly, Cornell used to play professional basketball. After playing on the collegiate level for Loyola Marymount University, Cornell went on to play for "multiple teams in the NBA, various Minor Leagues and throughout Europe and Asia,” according to LinkedIn. He stopped playing more than a decade ago but continued to work as a player agent later and negotiated, "a multitude of both basketball and marketing contracts for several prominent NBA players."
