‘I don’t think that number’s true but I’ll take it! ‘Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn addresses her jaw-dropping earnings for 2019
Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn is one of the most memorable reality TV ‘villains’ to emerge in recent years.
And the Netflix star also happens to be one of the best-paid realtors in the business.
The 31-year-old addressed her rumoured earnings for 2019 in an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday.

Radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson asked Christine about rumours she earned $9million last year.
‘I don’t think that number’s quite true but I’ll take it,’ she said with a laugh.
Christine’s net worth is reportedly $2million (AU$2.8million), according to The Sun.
She is the wife to retired tech entrepreneur Christian Richard, 41, whose net worth is significantly higher at $20million (AU$28.16million).
The couple married in December 2019, during the third season of Selling Sunset, in a gothic winter wonderland-themed wedding.

‘I always wanted to have more of a production than a wedding,’ Christine, who is originally from Texas but now lives in Los Angeles, told Kyle and Jackie O.
‘I wanted people to take away a different feeling and so that’s what I was really going for.’
Before starring in Netflix’s Selling Sunset, Christine appeared in NCIS: Los Angeles and Hot Tub Time Machine as an actress.

She got into real estate after deciding to take a break from showbusiness, but ‘wasn’t even supposed to be good at it’.
‘I was like, “Oh, okay, I’m making money. This has serious potential.” So that’s how it kind of worked out,’ Christine said.
‘Then I kind of lucked out because they were like, “Hey, want to be on a TV show.” I was like, “Great. I get the best of both worlds.”‘

Christine confirmed that Selling Sunset will have a fourth season but ‘it’s just a matter of when and how it’s going to happen’ due to the coronavirus pandemic.
‘It’s really difficult right now. Netflix shut down production on some shows they were filming because of COVID so they just have to be really, really careful,’ she said.
‘I don’t see us filming anytime this year… Who knows? Things might change with COVID and regulations will be a little different at the beginning of [next] year.’
