Christine Quinn claims savvy lawyer got her the highest salary on Selling Sunset

Christine Quinn, 33, has recently confirmed her return for season six of Netflix's Selling Sunset as well as shedding light on her whopping pay packet.

Her return is great news for many fans however it's not her return that has the people talking, it is her recent appearance on the popular podcast 'Call Her Daddy' where her and her co-star's salaries come into the discussion.

In the Spotify Exclusive podcast "Call Her Daddy' with Alex Cooper, Christine dropped multiple Selling Sunset bombshells including accusations, claiming she is paid the most amongst the cast thanks to smart negotiating by her lawyer.

How much the cast members actually get paid is a question that is undoubtedly on fans' minds and the Selling Sunset star is hiding nothing from fans.

While she didn't reveal any exact numbers, she shared there are three different pay tiers for the cast, and she and Jason Oppenheim are paid the most.

"I'm gonna get sued after this, I don't care. You can't afford my lawyers." she added before explaining.

The reason she takes home the highest salary isn't because of any production agreement or screen time — it's simply because she hired her own lawyer to negotiate the best deal.

"That was me, with my entertainment attorney, basically saying, this is my value. I think it's all about recognising your worth," she said.

She continued, "When we went into the show, we all have separate lawyers. The majority of the cast is represented by one lawyer, but obviously, I had to find my own entertainment attorney and do my own thing.

"They told us that there are tiers, I was the one who came to the whole entire cast and said, 'Listen, if we need to get paid what I 'believe we all deserve as a whole, because we are all equals, we need to band together and be on the same page.'

But it didn't work and some people were eager to sign their contracts right away, which immediately tiered them in a different group. I was the last one to sign my contract."

Quinn also added that though the cast tries to re-negotiate their salaries every season, they were "stuck in a bracket" for the first two.

"The episodic rate didn't even cover glam for a day," she said.
