Christine Quinn on her reputation
Christine Quinn embraces her villainous persona on Selling Sunset. With absolutely no plans to tone it down, Quinn said in an interview with The Times: ‘That’s what people love about me. But obviously there are different sides to me. On the show, it’s one note. But I’m a multi-faceted villain.”
She added: ‘I don’t feel like [b****] is a bad word. I embrace it. It stands for someone who knows what they want and speaks their mind. So many people don’t. If I get labeled a b**** because I speak my mind, then yeah, I guess I’m a b****.”
