“Selling Sunset” is back for season seven, and fans are buzzing about the new episodes. But amidst the excitement, some have questioned whether the cast members of the hit reality show are actually real estate agents. Well, we’re here to set the record straight.
Let’s start with the cast lineup for this season. Returning are Chrishell Stause, Bre Tiesi, Mary Fitzgerald, Emma Hernan, Amanza Smith, Davina Potratz, Chelsea Lazkani, and the Oppenheim twins, Jason and Brett. We also have the return of longtime cast member Heather Rae El Moussa, although her role in the new episodes is unclear. And for those skeptics out there, yes, the entire cast are indeed licensed real estate agents.
Back in 2020, model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to express doubts about the authenticity of “Selling Sunset.” She claimed that neither she nor her real estate agent had ever come across any of the cast members. The Oppenheim Group agents, including Jason Oppenheim, Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, and Heather Rae El Moussa, wasted no time in refuting Teigen’s claims and using the opportunity to promote the show even more.
Teigen’s tweet that caused quite a stir read, “I will say, I look at LA real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people lol either have our agents, who I have obsessively asked.” Jason Oppenheim responded by saying that he, too, was unfamiliar with Teigen’s agent, but that didn’t mean the agent wasn’t successful or hadn’t just sold her a stunning home in Weho. He even complimented Teigen on her new house.
Maya Vander, another member of the “Selling Sunset” cast, shrugged off Teigen’s claims during an interview with E! News. She expressed excitement that Teigen even watched the show again and acknowledged that any publicity is good publicity.
For those who require more concrete evidence, a visit to The Oppenheim Group’s website confirms that all cast members are indeed listed as licensed real estate agents. Jason Oppenheim is identified as the president and owner of the real estate brokerage. However, it’s worth noting that Brett Oppenheim has since left the group to start his own brokerage, which explains his absence from the site.
Curious about how the rest of the cast and even producer Adam DiVello responded to Teigen’s skepticism? Well, rest assured that they all stuck together in defending the legitimacy of the show and their roles as real estate agents. The cast and crew of “Selling Sunset” are proud of their accomplishments and the success they have achieved in the real estate industry.
There’s no need to doubt the authenticity of the stars of “Selling Sunset.” They are, without a doubt, licensed real estate agents. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the drama-filled world of luxury real estate in the heart of Los Angeles.
