Even casual viewers know that Selling Sunset drama is part of the O Group experience, but there's been so much that you might be in need of a crash course—who's with us?

Selling Sunset season 6 hit Netflix on Friday, May 19, and the new batch of episodes is every bit as chaotic as we had hoped. There's quite a bit to unpack for the realtors this season, from Chrishell Stause and Nicole Young's low blows to Jason Oppenheim navigating his new routine and Aperol Spritz dinners with Gen Z girlfriend, Marie-Lou Nurk.

Between these shenanigans and the never-ending Vanderpump Rules scandal, we're feeling particularly blessed in the reality TV department. But if you need a little help keeping track of the antics at the Oppenheim Group, don't be shy—we're here to help everything stay sorted. 

*Warning: spoilers ahead!*

All the season 6 'Selling Sunset' drama, explained:

In an interview with My Imperfect Life, Jason Oppenheim revealed that he likes to take a back seat to office antics. 

"I've learned to take a step back from trying to solve everything myself," he admitted. "I realize a lot of things solve themselves. A lot of things seem like a big deal upfront, but they end up not being a big deal if you just let them go."

Looks like his employees didn't get the memo! Here's everything that went down this season:

1. Nicole Young and Chrishell Stause

After Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim broke up, the realtor had mixed feelings about returning to the office. Though she and her ex remain on good terms—and both have embarked on new relationships—Nicole Young turned out to be an unexpected roadblock. 

For one, Chrishell had thought Nicole had taken Jason's side during their split and seemingly favored his new romance with Marie-Lou to his courtship with Chrishell. Then, once back in-office, Nicole decided to unearth a three-year-old issue, suggesting that Chrishell had taken credit for her listings. 

But all hell broke loose once the girls decided to embark on a getaway to Palm Springs while Jason was out of town. We didn't need a psychic to tell us this would be a disaster, but we didn't realize how heated things would become when Chrishell accused Nicole of having "something" in her wine glass, alluding to her using drugs. As a result, Nicole left for a drug test and threatened legal action if Chrishell tried to tarnish her professional reputation.

2. Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim

No one said dating a co-worker would be easy, especially if there's a breakup involved. 

Although there's a bit of an awkward vibe between the two at first, and understandably so, we begin to question whether or not Chrishell's heart is truly in her career. In fact, we're wondering if Chrishell leaves the Oppenheim Group to focus on her relationship with musician, G Flip, whom she married in May 2023. 

"I openly admit that I'm not giving my end-all-be-all to this office. I'm not. Even now, I have to be 100% honest with you. I mean, we're here having a very important conversation, but in the back of my head, G is [on tour] in Australia," Chrishell said to Mary Fitzgerald. 

3. Bre Tiesi and Chelsea Lazkani

Newcomer Bre Tiesi makes a statement in the office as one of the mothers of Nick Cannon's 12 children, something self-identified Christian Chelsea Lazkani cannot wrap her head around. 

After Chelsea revealed to her coworkers that Bre had been upset to learn that Nick had fathered another child with someone else, the boxing gloves came on. 

"Who I have children with is my business. I don't need a judge and a jury," Bre told her, among plenty of other things. 

Will these two be able to get on the proper footing? We're not counting on it. (Psst: if you're wondering if Bre Tiesi and Nick Cannon are still together, we have the lowdown on that, too.) 

4. Chelsea Lazkani and Heather Rae El Moussa

Chelsea's not pleased that Heather revealed what Chels had said about Nick Cannon's situation back to Bre, who was OOO when the conversation transpired. Who's the one really stirring the pot here, though?

5. Jason Oppenheim and Mary Fitzgerald

Jason is Europe-bound for three weeks with Marie-Lou, and in his absence, he wants Mary Fitzgerald to take control of "everything." 

This is a seemingly huge responsibility, one that Jason believes his other ex is more than capable of handling. But when things go wrong at the condo they're working on and catty behavior takes center stage, particularly during Palm Springs, Mary has a difficult time keeping things in check.

6. Emma Hernan and Bre Tiesi

We have a short-lived disgruntlement when Bre suspects Emma Hernan is attempting to snatch away one of her clients, but the Bostonian reveals that she's been friends with said client for years. They had simply been emailing about Emma's empanadas. No biggie! 

7. Amanza Smith and Chrishell Stause

Post-season 6, we learned that Auntie Chrishell, who once had a seemingly close relationship with Amanza Smith and her children, is on the outs. 

According to US Weekly, Amanza blocked her co-worker and took to Instagram to give a little bit of insight. 

"I’ve never given any reason as to why I blocked Chrishell to anyone because I don’t think anyone has asked so far,” Amanza, said on Instagram. “Don’t worry I’m happy to share in due time.” 

Selling Sunset season 6 is streaming now on Netflix. And on that note, here's what you need to know about Selling Sunset season 7.
