Jason Oppenheim hopes Christine Quinn will make a guest appearance on “Selling Sunset.”
Christine, 33, was recently said not to be returning for seasons six and seven of the Netflix reality show about glamorous estate agents Oppenheim Group, but agency boss Jason, 45, hopes she will make a comeback.
Speaking to TMZ, he said: “I don’t know the details yet, I honestly don’t get involved in these things. I just wrote her some compliments about the fashion things she does. We’re going to stay cool and friends.
“If Christine thinks it’s better to leave, then I support her. I would never question my agents. I think it would be cool if she popped out [the show] but I don’t get involved.”
However, Jason promised that the show, which also stars Chriselle Staves, Heather Rae El Moussa, Emma Hernan, Mary Fitzgerald, Chelsea Lazcani and Vanessa Villello, will still have plenty of drama despite the departure of supervillain Christine.
He said: “We have such a strong team, we have two new really strong women. I have no problem with seasons six and seven being better.
“There are a lot of strong personalities, including our two new women. I don’t want to use the word villain, but I think there will be an interesting dynamic.
“I’ve always wondered how we get drama on this show because we’re all friends, but it turns out that every season has more drama. I don’t care about this season.”
Christine, who has recently been known for criticizing the series and skipping the final season reunion, is said to be more interested in fulfilling her modeling contract with IMG Models, appearing at fashion industry parties and getting her hands dirty at RealOpen , the real estate agency owned by her husband Christian Richard, with whom she has a 15-month-old son, Christian.
And she made shocking allegations against the show’s producers, appearing on the Call Her Dad podcast, claiming she was told to “fall down the stairs” and mocking the cast for juicier storylines.
Christine told host Alex Cooper: “They literally keep us apart. Chelsea and I are best friends, Vanessa and I are best friends. So we show up on set and they separate us into different rooms and then they wait until we’re ready to shoot and they send us over there. But in the meantime, they’re going to have someone say, “Oh my god, you know Christine just said that about you in the previous scene, and they’re going to come to me [and say]“Chelsea said that about you [in] previous scenes.’ Therefore, they deliberately create such scenarios that incite our emotions. But I’ve been doing the play for four years. I’ve had five seasons, so I know how it works.”
