Selling Sunset season 5 just dropped on Netflix, and fans are already begging for more. Luckily, if you already binge-watched the new season, there's one more episode to hold you over until season 6. For the first time in its series history, Selling Sunset has a reunion episode.

And with all the season 5 drama, there was plenty for the ladies to discuss—including star Christine Quinn's rumored exit from the agency (and the show?), Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim's breakup, and Chrishell's new S.O.

Women's Health sat down with cast members Emma Hernan, Chelsea Lazkani, and Heather Rae El Moussa for some major BTS Selling Sunset reunion details. Here's what you need to know:

When did the cast film the season 5 reunion?

The ladies (and gentlemen) of The Oppenheim Group joined host Tan France from Queer Eye to talk all things Sunset Strip. The reunion was filmed on Sunday, April 24, according to E! News.

When will the reunion episode drop on Netflix?

The reunion episode will stream on May 6 on Netflix. And, since it was filmed two days after the release of the show, you can expect everyone's reactions to be super fresh.

Which Selling Sunset stars were there?

*Almost* everyone from the show made an appearance: Jason Oppenheim, Brett Oppenheim, Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, Davina Potratz, Maya Vander, Emma Hernan, Vanessa Villela, Heather Rae El Moussa, and Chelsea Lazkani were all set to hash things out.

Amanza Smith also joined the group from home via video after she tested positive for COVID-19 right before filming. She took to her Instagram to reassure her fans: "I did my own hair and my own makeup...I have to say, I look a whole lot better than I feel."

Wait...what about Christine Quinn?

Freaking out over the fact that Christine Quinn didn't appear on either couch? With all the questions that were left unanswered during the Season 5 finale (did Christine bribe a client?!), who wouldn't be wondering why she didn't reunite with the other gals?

Turns out, Christine said she also tested positive for COVID-19 just before filming. Although she was offered to participate virtually from her home, she ultimately decided to sit this one out.

"Christine tested positive for COVID, and out of abundance of caution for the cast and crew, she did not attend the reunion," a spokesperson told Us Weekly. "Producers offered her the opportunity to video chat, but she declined because she wasn't feeling well enough to do it."

But on Tuesday, a few days after the reunion taped, TMZ shared a Tweet that showed a photo of Christine on a film set. Chrishell responded with a gif of Maury Povich saying, “And the lie detector test determined that was a lie.” Oof. Sounds like Chrishell was not convinced about Christine's positive COVID test.

To add fuel to the fire, Mary Fitzgerald doubled down on Chrishell's indictment. When a TMZ reporter asked whether she believed Christine was sick, Mary responded, “No. I mean, me personally? No, because we all tested on Tuesday and then again on Friday.” She continued, “Probably because she didn’t want to face everything she’s done. I mean, that would be my guess, but it’s sad because we all showed up.”

But a source told Us Weekly that by Tuesday, Christine "had two negative tests and, in accordance with protocols, she went back to work." Interesting...

And, Christine may have left The Oppenheim Group for good.

Rumors are swirling that she's exited the agency—and seemingly not because she was fired: “It was Christine’s decision to leave the Oppenheim Group,” a source told Us Weekly.

Plus, the evidence online is overwhelming. First of all, Christine's bio is no longer on The Oppenheim Group's website. Her IG bio no longer mentions the agency, either.

So, where did she go? In a new post, Christine revealed that she and her husband are starting a new company called RealOpen: "Why work for someone else when you can be your own CEO?" she wrote in the caption.

Maya also tested positive after the reunion taping.

In other COVID-related news, Maya revealed to TMZ that she tested positive for the virus after the reunion and warned the cast of possible exposure. Even though she tested negative on Friday before the show, she said she began to feel sick on Tuesday.

But Maya believes she may have contracted it on the plane back home to Florida. Fortunately, she told TMZ that she's feeling fine, with only minor symptoms.

The reunion outfits were everything.

If you haven't already seen the preview photos or the recent Instagram posts, the girls brought their A-game when it came to their reunion 'fits.

Chelsea, Mary, Vanessa, and Emma wore shimmering gowns, while Heather, Maya, and Davina opted for minidresses. Chrishell's scarlet red Gaurav Gupta gown also led to a lot of online chatter.

Viewers also learned more about Chrishell and Jason's relationship.

While the show highlighted Chrishell and Jason's brief relationship, there was still a lot that went on behind closed doors following their breakup. The now-exes didn't become Instagram official until a few months into dating, but split late last year, not long after going public.

When the two announced their breakup, they shared that part of the reason why they decided to go their separate ways was because Chrishell wanted to have children, but Jason didn't. "This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family," Jason confirmed during the reunion. He also called Chrishell "the love of my life" and said he worried that he would always regret ending things with her (!!), per People.

And, the show has made things difficult for both: "I think there's a lot to work through, and we're getting there," Jason told host Tan France. Chrishell explained that "they haven't had time or space to move on yet," since season 5 highlighted their relationship.

It's also worth noting that, while many fans suspected that Jason and Chrishell got together for the cameras, both said their chemistry and relationship were very real.

Now, Chrishell is happily dating a brand new partner.

Since breaking things off with Jason in December, Chrishell has moved on. During the reunion, she revealed that she's now dating Australian singer G Flip.

"I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that's very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They're nonbinary, so they go by they/them," she said, per People. "And they are an extremely talented musician."

Chrishell said the pair met on set: "It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it's about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don't always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let's do that."

"It was so much fun, we had such a blast. Not everyone's going to be ready for it, but I think it's great. I think it's amazing, the song is amazing," she continued.

And, it seems like things are going well. A source said "Chrishell moved them in," meaning the two are now living together in Chrishell's Sunset Strip home. Congrats to the happy couple!

More spoilers, please!

For starters, Emma Hernan said she had nothing to worry about going into the reunion. “I am who I am on camera and off camera,” she told Women's Health. “I have the girl’s backs and I haven’t done anything I’m not proud of.”

She added that the reunion will shed some light on what goes down in-between seasons. “You see a decent amount of what happens on camera, but a lot more happens behind the scenes,” she said. “People deserve answers. People become very invested in the show, and these are our real lives!”

Meanwhile, newbie Chelsea was more than ready to get down to business with her co-stars. "I'm actually just really excited," she told WH. "Once all the girls have watched the season," she added, "I think people's opinions and emotions and things kind of heighten and change and evolve."

"There's going to be a lot of difficult conversations the girls want to have, and I'm just excited to have them so we can clear the air," she said.

And, Heather agreed. "I'm excited that all the girls are going to be together in one room, and we can hash things out," she tells WH.

Plus, Heather added that there's more to The Oppenheim Group than viewers get to see: "I've been in the office since 2014. I've known a lot of these girls for such a long time that we're family." Since those friendships run so deep, she said she's ready to "talk about special moments, and also confront people about certain things that were said."

One conversation she was particularly looking forward to? "I am so sick of Christine saying that my husband and I call paparazzi," Heather explained. "It's absolutely ridiculous, but she keeps saying it in almost every season. So once and for all, I want to squash that and tell her it's bullshit and be done."

Heather may not have been able to clear the air IRL, but I'm sure this will come up again... soon.
