I’ve recently come across a new show to watch on Netflix. I’m a big fan of trashy reality shows and Selling Sunset is no exception. I stumbled across it with my roommate about a week ago and we’re almost done with the whole show. To be clear, if you don’t like reality shows you will not like this show. However, if you’re like me and like trashy shows, this show should be right up your alley.
Selling Sunset is about a group of real estate agents in Hollywood who sells houses on the sunset strip. They sell the million-dollar home to multimillion-dollar homes and each house is more gorgeous than the last. However, if the pretty homes you get to see being sold isn’t enough to win you over, the women in the show certainly are.
The show follows about these real estate agents from the Oppenheim Group – Christine Quinn, Chrishell Stause, Davina Potraz, Amanza Smith, Maya Anders, Mary Fitzgerald, and Heather Rae Young. The show does look at the men who own the group – Jason and Brett Oppenheim – as well, but the real magic of the show comes from the interactions with the ladies.
These interactions include way too many of the cast saying they’re like a ‘family’ and throwing parties where they bond. Other interactions include Christine and Crishell have a major catfight at the end of season one and Mary and Christine have a fight in season two. If you’re not in a fan of women having catty fights about nothing at all, then this show is not for you.
The show is a good and fun show for anyone who likes petty drama and pretty houses in Los Angeles. It’s a great show to watch with your roommates when you need a break from your homework.
In a world full of uncertainties at the moment, a show like Selling Sunset with all of its petty fun drama is a welcome change and escapism. Consider watching it if you haven’t!
