AceShowbiz - Christine Quinn set the record straight about rumors that she faked COVID-19 diagnosis to skip "Selling Sunset" reunion. During her appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen", the real estate agent shut down the speculations.
Talking about her absence, host Andy said in the Wednesday, May 18 episode of the show, "People think you faked COVID." In response to that, Christine clarified, "I absolutely did have COVID. I absolutely did, yes."
Andy then asked the Netflix star why she didn't participate virtually like co-star Amanza Smith, who also had COVID-19 at the time. Christine claimed that she still "wasn't feeling well at all." She explained, "I was in bed until 4 o'clock that day. And like, no one wants to see what I look like in the morning."
The "How to Be a Boss B***h" author also shared that she didn't watch the reunion. Instead, she tuned into Hulu's "The Kardashians".
Christine also revealed that she wasn't actually sure about her status on the show. When Andy noted that "Real Housewives" stars would be fired if they didn't show up for a reunion, she shared, "Well, it wasn't part of our contract. It wasn't... It was an addition to the show."
Elsewhere in the episode, Andy also grilled her about her filming a photoshoot with Melissa Gorga and Lisa Rinna two days after she tested positive for COVID. "I tested positive the night before and the morning of [the shoot], so I was be able to go to set and do it outside," Christine explained, before quickly clarifying, "Positive to go as in negative."
While it has not been confirmed whether Christine will return for season 6 of "Selling Sunset", Jason Oppenheim said at the reunion that she was no longer welcomed at Oppenheim Group. Despite that, Christine, who previously revealed that she had terminated her contract with the real estate agency, told Us Weekly that she and her former boss are "in a really good place."
