Christine Quinn is the sassiest reality TV star on Netflix, a glamazon who sells multi-million dollar Hollywood homes during “burgers and Botox” parties, and baits her realtor colleagues with one-liners as sharp as her Louboutin heels.
We got the chance to meet the self-confessed “boss bitch” of Selling Sunset in real life when she flew to London to launch her appropriately sassy Ciaté make-up line. Naturally, we also wanted to get the inside scoop on the upcoming season, from her office feuds to her boss’s controversial new romance. However the biggest drama of all looks set to be centred around 32-year-old Christine’s birth story, which she tells us so nearly turned to tragedy...
Hi Christine! How are you enjoying life as a mum?
I love it, it’s the most wonderful thing in the whole entire world. Once you’ve birthed a human, all the petty b******t in life that you used to worry about goes out the window.
We hear Christian Jr made a pretty dramatic arrival into the world…
There was a point where we both nearly died. At the hospital, they kept going out to my husband (Christian Richard) and saying, “OK, Christine’s stable but the baby’s not,” and then, “The baby’s stable but Christine’s not.” Then after the continual back and forth, they said to him, “You need to pick one right now, you have to make the priority.” I feel horrible that he had to go through that.
What did he say?
Oh, he just said, “You’d better get them both.”
Aw! Will we be seeing a softer side to you this season?
For sure. I was definitely vulnerable, which is not really a side you’ve seen before.
You returned to work a week after giving birth. What’s your message to the people who trolled you?
My message is, it was all part of my healing process. After giving birth I was in bed for four days, p***ing myself in a catheter, and I was so happy when I was able to walk to the bathroom again. I just noticed, “OK, when I’m active I feel better.”
