What would reality TV be without a few legal woes? Chrishell Stause and Christine Quinn might be Selling Sunset costars and Oppenheim Group employees, but that does not mean they're on friendly terms. 

In fact, they almost landed in court. Even though Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim are an item now, her divorce from actor Justin Hartley is what allegedly turned the women's relationship from bad to worse. 



Chrishell Stause and Christine Quinn: what happened?

In an interview with Vulture (opens in new tab), Stause claims Quinn tried to plant fake stories about her amid her divorce from the This Is Us actor and the death of her mother, and she makes no bones about it.

"It was a lot on my plate and kicking someone while they’re down and trying to spread a rumor that I was hooking up with someone. Both parties knew that is not what happened," Stause revealed to the publication. 

Although this prompted Stause to sue her costar, she did not follow through with any legal action.

Stause did claim that she had to fight off Quinn's second round of allegations that she and Oppenheim were a couple before they actually were in a relationship. 

Needless to say, there isn't exactly a warm and fuzzy feeling between the two realtors. It's entirely possible that things won't smooth over before Selling Sunset season 5, but that's part of the reality show's allure, right? After all, fans are currently soaking up the tension between Christine and Emma, both of whom were dating ex-NBA star, Peter Cornell. The Chrishell-Christine dynamic isn't any sweeter. 

If you're looking for more drama, grand listings and relationship turmoil, Selling Sunset's spin-off, Selling Tampa, will hit Netflix mid-December, and it's bound to make the perfect binge marathon once holiday movies begin to lose their sparkle.
