Christine Quinn loves being “extra”

Christine Quinn loves being called “extra”.

The ‘Selling Sunset’ star is aware she is not “everyone’s cup of tea” due to her strong personality on the Netflix show.

Speaking to Grazia magazine, she said: “I love being extra. I love being called extra. I love all things extra. Extra is such a compliment to me. I understand that I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. Some people like coffee, some people like soda. I happen to like Earl Grey and think it’s fabulous.

“We haven’t seen enough women in business standing on their own, not depending on a man. Where they are smart, witty and fabulous, fashionable as hell and quick-tongued. We haven’t had enough of those role models.”

Christine rose to fame on the hit show, which first premiered in 2019 but became popular during the coronavirus lockdown and the 31-year-old reality star believes its success is down to people seeking glamour.

She said: “Season one did OK, Two was pretty good, but in quarantine we were all looking for that glimmer of hope, everything we weren’t getting in the moment. It was all so dull and dark and scary and uncertain and everything about Selling Sunset was so certain and so glamorous. It was something everyone needed, just to get away. It came out at the perfect time.”

What’s more, Christine has hinted at a fifth season saying: “You mean for seasons four and five? Did I say that? Oops!”

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty opened up about her wedding to millionaire businessman Christian Richard and why she chose to wear black instead of a traditional white.

She explained: “Everyone loves white but it’s such a cliché. I wanted to have an event, a party, I wanted to have something memorable that is bold and leaves people pondering.

“It was very unapologetic. That was my overall theme for the wedding and it’s my overall theme for life.”
