It's no secret that Selling Sunset stars Christine Quinn and Chrishell Stause are not friends. On the newest episode of the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast with Amanda Hirsch, Quinn discusses the series's third season and explains her severed relationship with Stause.
As a refresher, Quinn and Stause’s most recent rift erupted after Quinn spoke with the media about her costar's divorce from Justin Hartley. Stause even took to Twitter to discredit Quinn’s comments.
I just learned Christine is giving press “information” about my divorce. Let me be VERY clear. She knows absolutely nothing about the situation and is obviously desperate to gain attention by doing so. Anything from her is either a complete lie or total conjecture on her part.

On the podcast, Quinn says she believes Stause was less upset about the fact that she spoke with the media and more upset that Quinn’s answers to press didn’t paint Hartley as the bad guy.

"She's trying to, you know, have this portrayal of Justin Hartley being such a bad guy and just walking out on her," Quinn tells Hirsch. She explains that when asked in interviews about the divorce, she answered truthfully and "in a very nice respectful way."
"I've met him and he was nice to me and that's what the interviewer asked me and that's what I was going off of," she explains on the podcast. "I thought maybe she got mad that I was saying he's a nice guy," she says. Quinn had also told the press that the couple was in therapy.
Quinn then goes on to describe Stause: "She's kind of had and always has had this kind of victim mentality. She's always the victim of something."
Hirsch suggests that Stause's "victim mentality" may have developed due to the star's childhood. Previously, the Kentucky native had revealed during the series that she grew up in poverty, often referring to herself as the "smelly kid" because didn't always have running water growing up.

The beginning of Quinn and Stause’s feud dates back to the pool party shown during the season one finale, as Quinn notes. This is where Quinn had confronted Stause about being unable to own up to comments that she had made concerning her costar Mary Fitzgerald's relationship with Romain Bonnet. After the pool party, Quinn explains that Stause had blocked her on Twitter, Instagram, and her phone number. Things escalated even more in season two after Quinn threw a party at an open house and named one of the mixed drinks: "Chrishell Two-Faced Tonic."
