Similar to Davina, Vanessa also left Selling Sunset for business reasons.

Specifically, she chose to work as a real estate agent for The Agency, instead of The Oppenheim Group.

In a recent interview, she revealed that she didn’t feel like she fit in with the other stars of the Netflix show.

Vanessa said that, “I always felt like I was the new girl in school. They’re obviously super successful and it’s an incredible show, but I have to make my own life and make my dreams come true.”

The reality TV star also went on to share that she still talks to a few of her former costars.

She said that, “I love Maya so much, we stay in touch a lot. I also message here and there with Christine [Quinn] as well. She’s not in this season either, but she’s an incredible person and really nice to me. The rest are super nice, but we are not in contact right now.”
