Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Selling Sunset is a reality show that mixes the drama of the Los Angeles luxury real estate business with traditional reality show relationship turmoil. There's lots of flirting and sexual innuendo, and some crude references and words like "d--k" and "douche bag." There's also arguing and some mean behavior among the cast members. The word "bitch" is audible, but other curses are infrequent and muted. Alcohol is frequently consumed, and there are references to taking prescription medications. The series is a promotional vehicle for the Oppenheim Group.
Is It Any Good?
This voyeuristic series mixes the world of the high-end real estate business with lots of personal drama. The houses and properties featured are stunning, and the associates are talented, hardworking agents who are confident in their abilities. However, there is great emphasis on their good looks, and it's implied that this contributes to their professional success.
Not surprisingly, some cast members are obnoxious and arrogant, which makes for some tense reality moments. So does the addition of associate Amanza Smith during the second season. But regardless of the effort to home in on people's catty behavior, it is evident that the group makes professionalism their priority. As a result, while it is entertaining, Selling Sunset is barely over-the-top enough to be a guilty pleasure.
