Reality shows, other than the established ones, don’t seem to attract any audience. But, that trend is not true for Selling Sunset, a reality show about real agents selling houses in LA. As the reality show premiered, its fourth season on November 24 on Netflix, speculations about the cast started rising.
Just like a good film or show ends up getting searches like “Is XYZ real?” The flip side is where the audience doubts a reality show or a film based on true events. So, let us look at the allegations against Selling Sunset.
Why is there a doubt about the real agents of Selling Sunset?
Chrissy Teigen tweeted calling out the Oppenheim Group for the real agents of Selling Sunset about whom she had never heard. And we all know the power of Twitter to rile up people for trivial things. The tweet spread like wildfire. As a result, Chrissy ended up sowing the seeds of doubt unintentionally.
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.

Chrissy gave her opinion after the first season had dropped on Netflix on March 21, 2019. Other Twitter users came out to support Chrissy. Some viewers’ doubts about Chrishell being an actor were especially intriguing as she was a professional actor before she turned to real estate.
Response of the Selling Sunset cast
Jason Oppenheim, the founder of the Oppenheim Group, acknowledged Chrissy’s tweet and was grateful to her for completing the show. However, in the deleted tweet, he also taunted Chrissy by saying “Regarding your agent’s knowledge of members of my team, I respectfully don’t know him either, although that doesn’t mean he isn’t successful and didn’t just sell you a stunning home in Weho (seriously, I love your new house).”
Other cast members like Davina Potratz, Maya Vander, and Chrishell Stause straight up denied the allegations. However, they admitted that sometimes the directors nudged them to address particular things. Viewers dismissed the doubts regarding Chrishell after one of her friends mentioned Chrishell in an Instagram story, mentioning how Chrishell had sold Heather Young’s property.
Viewers should watch reality shows like Selling Sunset with a pinch of salt, as not everything makes it to the final cut.
