Fans of the Netflix series quickly binged their way through season five, after it dropped at the end of April.
We got a glimpse at Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim’s short-lived relationship, newcomer Chelsea Lazkani’s sass and Christine being accused of bribing a client not to work with Emma Hernan.
Christine also hinted she would be quitting The Oppenheim Group after she announced a new company with her husband Christian Richard.
But fans hoping to see Christine tell her side of the story in the fiery reunion will be left disappointed, as she doesn’t appear.
Here’s everything you need to know about why Christine didn’t show up.
Why is Christine Quinn missing from the season 5 reunion?
Viewers were left confused after both Amanza Smith and Christine were absent from the cast photo, with host Tan France.
The pair both came down with Covid, and it was reported Christine ‘didn’t feel well enough’ to appear in any form.
A rep for Christine previously told TMZ: ‘She tested positive for Covid on Saturday and out of an abundance of caution, she did not attend the reunion.’
However, she was papped just a couple of days later lounging on a sunbed, despite apparently having the virus.
In pictures obtained by TMZ, the 33-year-old was seen scrolling on her phone, with Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga on another bed beside her. Neither reality star was wearing a mask.
The CDC, which is the federal agency mandated with protecting the health of US citizens, recommends an isolation period of five days.
Christine has been made out to be the villain of Selling Sunset season five, having clashed with a number of her colleagues.
Some fans were sceptical over her reason for being absent, as Chrishell also revealed her uncertainties on Twitter.
She shared a gif that read: ‘And the lie detector test determined that was a lie.’
As it stands, claims Christine faked her illness are totally unfounded.
Meanwhile, Amanza appeared via Zoom from her home after she also had to give the in-person catch up a miss.
She previously gave fans a glimpse at her getting ready process, sharing on her Instagram story: ‘I’m going to be joining them via satellite, via Zoom, from my kitchen/living area.’
‘I did my own hair and makeup,’ she revealed, before joking that she looked ‘a whole lot better’ than she felt with Covid.
When is Selling Sunset the reunion out?
The reunion landed on the streaming service today, meaning it can be watched worldwide on Netflix now.
A season six was previously confirmed, so fans hopefully won’t have to wait more than a few months to get another slice of the action.
