Most of us will never, ever be able to afford a multi-million dollar home in Los Angeles (or anywhere, for that matter). That’s part of what makes Netflix’s Selling Sunset so compelling! It’s the only way we’ll ever be given an inside look at how millionaires actually live. Of course, that’s only part of the story.
While we may come for the houses, we stay for the drama (admit it!), and Selling Sunset has plenty of it. Recently, a bit of real-life drama started making headlines: Brett Oppenheim has apparently left his job at the twins' brokerage. What’s up with that? Here’s what we know.
Did Brett leave ‘Selling Sunset’? If so, why?
In a recent interview with Glamour, Christine Quinn confirmed that Brett has officially left The Oppenheim Group. “Brett has left to start his own brokerage,” she said, confirming the rumors that had swirled around the show ever since Season 3 premiered on Netflix. It seems to be true: Take a look at the staff page on the Oppenheim Group website. While Jason Oppenheim is listed right at the top as the broker, his twin brother Brett is nowhere to be found.
But he is found on the About page for another brokerage. Brett is listed as the president and broker of the (very similarly named) Oppenheim Real Estate. The plot thickens! Although Brett was formerly the vice president of The Oppenheim Group, all mention of him has been completely erased on the website (unless you count the fact that he appears in the team picture — at least for now).
From what we can tell, it doesn’t appear as though Brett and Jason are on bad terms — they're still posting plenty of pics together on Instagram. Are the brothers taking a divide-and-conquer approach, or do we have a simple case of sibling rivalry?
Brett hasn't really mentioned Selling Sunset on his socials, although he has posted a bunch of photos featuring Jason and the other stars of the show. As we all know, they're a very tight-knit group, and it doesn't look like that has changed even if Brett is currently heading up a separate team. Hopefully we'll get more details in Season 4. Speaking of which ...
We now have a release date for Season 4 of 'Selling Sunset.'
It feels like Season 3 of the show happened forever ago, but there's finally an end in sight to the wait for new episodes. Season 4 of Selling Sunset has officially been announced with a release date of Wednesday, Nov. 24. That's just in time to binge-watch a bunch of episodes over Thanksgiving!
Brett's (rumored) departure isn't the only drama we're looking forward to getting info on in Season 4. There are also rumors that Christine Quinn has left the show — and judging by the fact that she has yet to appear in any promo images for the new season, we're starting to believe said rumors.
Anyway, we’re guessing that even if Brett left The Oppenheim Group, he’ll most likely still be on the show, meaning Season 4 is probably going to be even more drama-filled than ever. While we wait (im)patiently for Nov. 24, there’s only one thing to do: Go back and binge-watch Seasons 1–3. And keep a close eye on Brett’s and Jason’s respective social media profiles, obviously. We’ve gotta get down to the bottom of this mystery.
