'Selling Sunset' star Chrishell Stause still "not friends" with Christine Quinn, says new cast members stir the pot

Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause is dishing on her relationship with her co-stars, old and new, and how she's met Christine Quinn's baby even though they don't really get along.
"I don't think it's a secret, you know, we're not friends," Chrishell, 39, toldUs Weekly on Tuesday of Christine, 31. "But I think the goal is to be able to be coworkers."
The Dancing with the Stars alum revealed the pair's real estate "business has soared" in recent years and so the women do their best to look at "the big picture" and remain professional and amicable with each other.
"Of course there's, like, the little dramas that happen, [but] we're all incredibly lucky to be given this opportunity, so I think that's the goal," Chrishell explained.
Despite their differences, Chrishell said she has met Christine's son Christian, who was born in May.
"She did bring her baby into the office, and so it was really great to get to meet him... He was so cute," the former soap opera star shared.
Chrishell also insisted she had sent Christine and her husband Christian Richard a gift basket following their baby's birth, despite social-media rumors Chrishell hadn't sent flowers or anything to the new mom.
"[There was] a bunch of stuff. The onesies and the bottles. I wasn't reinventing the wheel or anything, but it was [sent]," Chrishell confirmed.
"There's drama with the show, but sometimes people try and create drama where there isn't any, and we have enough as it is. So, I just try to at least squash it when that wasn't a thing."
For Christine's part, she assured the magazine earlier this month there is "no tension" with Chrishell on the set of their Netflix series, which has aired for three seasons.
"I haven't seen Chrishell in a really long time," Christine said, noting that the pair hadn't begun filming Selling Sunset's fourth season yet.
But dynamics will probably change once the new season of Selling Sunset introduces two new cast members, Emma Hernan and Vanessa Villela.
"They are in different stages in their real estate [careers] and obviously, it definitely stirs the pot a little bit. But I will say they're really lovely," explained Chrishell, who has starred on Selling Sunset since 2019.

"I've really enjoyed working with them. It's Selling Sunset, so I can't say that's been the case with everyone or we wouldn't have a show," she joked. "But they are really great."
Chrishell said she felt like it was her "duty" to offer advice and guide the newbies on their journey that mixes TV with a competitive real estate market.
"I know we're a little behind schedule because, obviously, the year that we had... I don't think it would have served the show to do it in a lockdown situation [when] our show was all about being out and about," Chrishell recalled.
"So we did switch back and wait until we could kind of do it the proper way. So even though it's a longer way, it'll be worth it."
