What's going on in the Oppenheim office? Did Christine Quinn get fired? 

Selling Sunset season 5 has just landed on Netflix, much to binge watchers' delight, but fans are already questioning Quinn's fate with the realty company, considering drama erupted almost immediately. 

Before the new episodes even dropped, we hear Quinn state in the new season trailer: "I was wondering why I wasn't getting listings, then I'm like 'Oh yeah. It's cause I'm not f****** my boss," she said, alluding to Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim's romance. 

Did we really anticipate smooth sailing here, folks? Here's what's happening in Cali. 

Did Christine Quinn get fired?

There are several reasons why fans are majorly suspicious about Quinn's tenure at the Oppenheim Group. 

First thing's first: she confided to season 5 newbie Chelsea Lazkani that she's having trouble adjusting to office life after her maternity leave. It's a valid point, but when you make dinner reservations in the middle of a meeting, you're not doing yourself any favors.

"I'm constantly up against different bulls**t and I feel like I've just gotten to a point where I just don't want to be in the office because it gets to a point where the drama is affecting my business and I don't want that," she told Lazkani.

Then we have the fact that Davina Potratz left the Oppenheim Group, something that Quinn admires. 

"I'm not desperate for a job. I'm intelligent, I can start my own brokerage. I can be a broker. I mean if Davina can do it, I can do it," she said during the fifth season. 

Quinn also offered her opinion on the season's "fake storylines," ahead of the season 5 premiere. Co-worker Emma Hernan alleged that Quinn offered her clients $5,000 not to work with her. Quinn wrote on Twitter: "30 minutes till the launch of #SellingSunset enjoy the new season and all of its 5,000 fake storylines!"

Last but not least, it looks like Quinn did not take part in the upcoming Selling Sunset reunion—if the recently-released reunion pictures are anything to go by.

So, this all begs the question: is she still part of the famous West Coast realty company?

Yes, Quinn is still part of the Oppenheim Group, and her agent bio (opens in new tab) is still live on the site at the time of publication. So, it appears we're not parting ways with her quite yet. For those who can't resist TV shows about gossip and drama, you can breathe a sigh of relief.  

If you recall, at the end of season 4, fans questioned if Quinn had left the company and show after a massive argument with Mary Fitzgerald at a party. Perhaps this is her way of keeping fans hooked in season 5? After all, a little uncertainty goes a long way with reality TV. 

While we wait for the Selling Sunset reunion to answer all of our questions, soak up all the goodness of season 5, and indulge in Emma's Empanadas while you're at it.
