Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn is shooting down rumors that she faked her pregnancy and used a surrogate after a slew of social media posts suggested she did so.
The 33-year-old left many talking after she looked to recover miraculously only days after recovering from an allegedly traumatizing birth.
In nearly every episode of Season 4, Christine was praised by costars and friends for looking like she had never been pregnant at all.
“Look how tiny you are,” Amanda commented after Christine made her first appearance since giving birth.
“I still can’t get over the fact that you just had a baby three weeks ago,” Maya said in another episode. “Like, I love you, but I also hate you.”
While in another episode when Christine went to view a house “two weeks” after giving birth in a crop top and “stripper heels,” Vanessa teased: “Look at you! When did you have this baby?! Honestly, I think you lied to me.”
“I was doing pilates and yoga, standing on my head, doing inversions, up until pretty much I gave birth,” Christine said during a confessional on the show.
“I was doing my best to just, you know, stay in shape, be healthy. Then I was like, ‘I’ll get liposuction after if I need to.'”
But viewers were quick to cast doubt on the star realtor’s experience, questioning if she had even given birth as she seemed to be exercising just days after going through an emergency C-section.
In a since-deleted Instagram story, Christine posted a screenshot of a direct message she’d received which accused her of faking her pregnancy as well as setting unrealistic standards.
“Why did you fake your pregnancy?” the message read. “It’s totally okay to admit to having a surrogate but don’t set unrealistic expectations for PP moms when you didn’t even carry the baby yourself. It’s deceitful and a shame.”
In response to the DM, Christine captioned the screenshot: “K y’all are beyond f****** sick.”
In another tweet, she demanded those at fault to apologize for spreading the rumor, stating: “This is seriously so hurtful.”
“I never worked out after my C-section,” she tweeted. “Are you smoking Crack? Where did you read that? The yoga scene I was pregnant. It took me 4 months till I could even start yoga again.”
