Davina Potratz of ‘Selling Sunset’ Leaves the Oppenheim Group
Davina Potratz of Netflix’s popular real estate drama, Selling Sunset, is leaving the show after three seasons.
Potratz stated that she is leaving for a rival Beverly Hills firm, Douglas Elliman. “I’m really excited to be a part of Douglas Elliman and their very sophisticated and global new development division,” Potratz told People, who was first to report the news. “My background is in new development sales and marketing, so this is just a wonderful opportunity for me. It’s just very in tune with my skills.”
Potratz also said that while she has broken the news to Jason Oppenheim, she has yet to tell her co-stars Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, Christine Quinn, Maya Vander, Amanza Smith, and Heather Rae Young. “We all know each other so well. So I think they’ll be excited and supportive,” Potratz said. “It’s not that I wanted to leave, but I had a great opportunity. It was a purely business decision.”
However, she still hopes to appear on the show. “I certainly hope that I’m still part of the cast,” Potratz said. “Brett (Oppenheim’s twin brother) is not at the Oppenheim Group anymore either, so I don’t think that’s going to be an issue at all. We haven’t filmed anything. There’s no confirmation,” she added, of whether fans can expect another season of Selling Sunset. “We just don’t know anything.” Netflix has yet to officially renew the show for its fourth season after season three ended with Quinn’s extravagant wedding and Stause’s divorce from actor Justin Hartley.
Fans had a variety of reactions; Potratz was known for being the “villain” of the show along with Quinn due to her dislike of Stause and involvement in talking about her divorce with the press.
