Selling Sunset is returning to Netflix for a new season and is expanding its cast with a new realtor who hopes to make a name for herself.
Chelsea Lazkani will join the ladies of the Oppenheim Group during Season 5, selling luxury real estate in Los Angeles. The realtor will attempt to find her place as she settles into the office and tries to bond with her coworkers.
Selling Sunset’s Chelsea Lazkani has already gotten close to one of her costars
Prior to the release of Season 5, Chelsea sat down with People to share how things are going since she joined the elite real estate brokerage. She talked about her relationship with her costars, and how she’s staying out of the drama and focusing on getting to know each woman individually.
In her interview, she revealed that she didn’t have a bond with any of the women she’s working with prior to joining the show, but she has already started building a connection with them.
She cites Christine Quinn in particular, as someone she’s really gotten close to. When asked about her, Chelsea says, “I just adore Christine. We have such a great relationship.”
In previous seasons, Christine has been painted as the show’s villain. The women would often distance themselves from her, causing some tension that played out in the episodes. When asked if she had gotten involved in any of the office drama, Chelsea replied, “No, no, no.”
She went on to say that she’s also gotten close to Emma and Chrishell and reveals that she has “a budding relationship with all the girls.” Chelsea reiterated her goal of getting to know the ladies by saying, “I understand they may have had drama, but I am here to form my own unique relationships.”
