Chrissy Teigen Gave Her Thoughts On "Selling Sunset" And I Unfortunately Can't Relate Because I'm Poor

    "I look at LA real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people."

    So, we're all up to date on the best TV show in current existence, right?


    Yes, I'm talking about Selling Sunset, the Netflix gem that is one part LA mansions and 84 parts drama.


    The show has swept us all up into the world of luxury real estate and petty squabbling, where ~botox and burger~ open houses and $75 million dollar listings are a thing.


    The latest person to become obsessed with the show is none other than Chrissy Teigen and, if this tweet is anything to go by, she and John have really gotten into it.

    @ricksavage I don’t know anything he does honestly. He’s been on the couch next to me watching selling sunset for 4 hours now

    To be quite honest, I'm just surprised it's taken Chrissy this long to binge it but better late than never I guess!

    Of course, Chrissy had some thoughts after settling in and they're quite interesting...


    First of all, the Cravings author doesn't think the cast are as "mean or insane" as people on social media said they were. "Maybe I'm just so used to it because I live here?" she explained. "This is pretty normal."


    This is...well, it's a little concerning, but Chrissy is an A-list celebrity living in a very fancy house so maybe this is indeed normal for her. Me and my three Instagram followers unfortunately can't relate.

    "I think people think they're mean because they're women in a really tough industry," Chrissy went on after being questioned about her opinion. "I don't *know* people like that but if I worked in a place like that I'm sure I would."


    Chrissy then pointed out that the cast are definitely "playing up" to their characters, suggesting they wouldn't necessarily be like that in real life.

    Maybe I also know everyone on tv plays up a character. They’re all doing that. You guys are ... super mad at people who are in on the joke.

    The show's "villain" — AKA its best cast member Christine Quinn — has touched on this in interviews recently, explaining that she "has fun with it" on camera.


    "I have a background in comedy," she told People. "I love to make people laugh, and my whole goal in life has just been to entertain people and make them feel something."

    "I do have a heart of gold underneath that," she added. "I think sometimes with television, it's really hard to see all the elements of a human being on a television show."

    Chrissy's most interesting opinion/observation though really had me raising an eyebrow — she doesn't seem entirely convinced that the cast are even actual real estate agents!


    "I look at LA real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people," Chrissy tweeted. "[Neither] have our agents, who I have obsessively asked."

    On the flip side, Chrissy said she sees the agents from TV show Million Dollar Listing all the time, and even bought a property from two of them.

    I see them all the time in LA! And bought from John and Frederick in New York.

    Seeming to ignore the part where Chrissy said she hadn't seen or heard of any of the agents before, Chrishell responded with nothing but praise and even tried her luck at flogging a property.

    Ahhhh my 👑 @chrissyteigen watched #SellingSunset 🙌🏽🙏🏼 Also, I have an AMAZING 2m listing hitting the market Monday in Studio City if you want to see it! 😆🙌🏽

    But Chrissy revealed she and John recently purchased a new place for their "growing family" before joking that the new addition to the family could stay there instead.

    @chrissyteigen It’s perfect for the baby to have their own space.😆 Congrats!! 💗

    Anyway, with the cast hinting that season four of Selling Sunset could well be going ahead, we'll hopefully have more episodes to binge before too long.

    Until then, I'll be polishing my Christine Quinn #1 stan badge.
