A new girl is in town! Emma Hernan will be bringing her A game in her Selling Sunset debut. However, her past with Christine Quinn could lead to some drama.
Emma, who is 29 years old, has been part the Oppenheim Group family for the past two seasons. Season 4 of Netflix’s series will mark her first time together with her coworkers. However, her ongoing feuding with Christine seems to be a bigger story than the major Los Angeles listings.
Emma stated that she was here to “work” and that “all the drama from high school that I have dealt with over the years will be able to stay out of my mind.” The trailer for the new season dropped Wednesday, November 10.
Christine, 33, claims that the drama between the women stems from Emma’s engagement to her ex-boyfriend two months after they broke up. Heather Rae Young also noted in the teaser, that Christine finds it a sensitive topic. The man who brought them together was not named by either woman.
Christine has been married to Christian Richard since May and they welcomed their first child together. However, tensions between Emma and Christine remain.
Emma actually teased Christine about her issues during an October interview with Nylon. After being asked if Christine is “fabulous” and “wild” off-screen, she said that she would not make any comment. “I’ll give that one a no comment.”
L.A. resident shared her experience of transitioning from behind-the scenes member to a series participant.
Emma explained that she was hesitant “when I signed up to the show. However, I wasn’t unsure what I was getting into. I feel very comfortable around the cameras. I’m 100% myself, on and off camera. It’s important to be authentic to who you really are.”
Christine and her appearance on the series could cause more problems. She said that season 4 would be the most exciting season yet and she is not exaggerating.
Chrishell Stause, Costar’s friend, exclusively revealed that Emma Villela and Vanessa Villela would definitely shake up the situation in June.
“They are at different stages of their real estate careers which obviously stirs up a bit. They are, however, really wonderful,” she, a former soap star of 40 years, stated at the time. “It’s hard to predict what people will react, but it’s been a pleasure working with them. Selling Sunset is not the same for everyone. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to have a show. They are great.”
