While the likes of Heather Rae El Moussa, Chrishell Stause and Amanza Smith all celebrated the news on social media… show villain Christine Quinn remained silent, and it was revealed yesterday that Maya Vander has now left.
Despite leaving her role at the Oppenheim Group, Christine vowed in May this year that she was ‘not going anywhere’ when it came to the hit show.
The 33-yeaer-old – who now rubs shoulders with the likes of Anna Wintour – recently left the celebrity real estate agency amid the launch of RealOpen, her and husband Christian Dumontet’s new crypto real estate business.

‘I love the show. The show is, like, my No. 1 [and] everyone knows that, but we just have to get creative now because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group,’ Christine told UsWeekly recently.
However, Christine did not toast the success of the show’s renewal as others did – and each year there are fervent rumors of a cast shake-up with new additions being added by Netflix bosses.
Clearly not a fan of Christine making a comeback is Emma Hernan, who told Entertainment Tonight: ‘When you’re lying, you’re doing these awful things, it’s hard to keep up with the story. So, it was easier not to show up.’
She added: ‘Obviously, I’m not the boss. But it’s come to a point where she’s hurt each and every single one of the girls on the show, on the cast, in the O Group.’

‘So, Jason’s going to have to make that decision… But he’s the boss, so TBD. I don’t think anyone knows at this point.”
In the most current season, Christine featured alongside longtime employees Mary Fitzgerald, Heather Rae Young, Chrishell Stause, Amanza Smith, who joined in season two, and former employee Davina Potratz.
Tellingly, Mary said this season on the show: ‘There’s only so many seats at the office, so we’re going to have to take a look at who’s not pulling their weight.’
Yesterday, it was revealed that Maya, 40, is not returning for the show’s sixth season and will instead focus her efforts on family and her Miami-based real estate business.

News of Vander’s exit from the series comes on the heels of her announcement she suffered a miscarriage, six months after she delivered her stillborn son. Vander announced the sad news on her Instagram Stories Tuesday with a picture of her son Aiden, three, as he slept.
‘I had a very crazy week. Miscarriage after 10 weeks… following my stillbirth… but my kids and my husband are absolutely my blessing and I am so lucky to be there mother!’
She continued: ‘They bring me joy and happiness to my life!! Hug and love the people you care about. Don’t take things for granted!’ adding a prayer emoji.
Maya is married to David Amar, and they share two children: Aiden and daughter Elle, two.
Six months prior to her miscarriage, Maya suffered a devastating stillbirth.
She revealed the news on her social media with a picture of a memory box given by the hospital.
