According to Quinn, she was experiencing anxiety and depression before the show started. It is something that she has always suffered from, and when the show started, it got amplified.
To curb the effects of the anxiety and depression she was feeling, Quinn got on a medication, which she had taken at certain stages of her life. The 31-year-old also said:
"...it's something that I take on a daily basis and I just feel like, so evened out and so much better."
Quinn also spoke about her co-reality television personality, Hannah Ferrier, praising the latter for opening up about her mental health on social media.
Ferrier, who is a star of the reality series, "Below Deck Mediterranean," shared resources that would help people struggling with depression and anxiety.
Quinn's revelation about "Selling Sunset" amplifying her anxiety is similar to that made by another star of the series, Chrishell Stause.
Ferrier also pointed out that there was a difference between what viewers watch on television and what was going on in a person's head.
Quinn also expressed delight at the fact that people were beginning to bring mental health issues to the open, citing the example of "Real Housewives of Dallas" Stephanie Hollman.
Christine Quinn has become quite a sensation since the start of "Selling Sunset." However, before going into the real estate business and starring in the show, she began her career as an actress and a model.
She always wanted to work in the entertainment industry and attended New York City's school for performing arts, Julliard, due to her interest in acting and theater arts.
Quinn's revelation about "Selling Sunset" amplifying her anxiety, is similar to that made by another star of "Selling Sunset," Chrishell Stause, who revealed in a social media post that she had so much anxiety leading to the show's third season.
In the new season, fans will get to see how Stause is handling the aftermath of her divorce from her ex-husband Justin Hartley, whom she previously claimed blindsided her.
