Who Is Chelsea Lazkani?
Chelsea Lazkani is a Nigerian and British real estate agent. She is the latest member to join the cast after Vanessa Villela and Emma Hernan debuted in season 4. Confirming her role in the show, Chelsea shared her happiness on Instagram with the caption ‘The secret is OUT! I’m beyond thrilled to announce that I have joined the cast of @netflix Selling Sunset! So grateful for everyone involved, the list is long and you know who you are,” the caption read. “The laughs, the lux, the drama, i
t’s all there in season 5 and I can’t wait for you all to see it!’
Although Chelsea was born in the UK, she spent her adult years in the USA. She said that she was raised in a ‘real estate family’ after she completed her master’s from Scotland. Not many know that she specializes in all aspects of being a realtor whether it is finding the right land for her developer clientele or educating first-time buyers about choosing the perfect house.
Although a natural in real estate, she studied business and economics at the University of Buckingham. She earned her master’s degree in International Oil and Gas Management from the University of Dundee in Scotland. She worked in the corporate world for a couple of years before getting her license as a real estate agent and switching over her profession.
Chelsea took some time off in between to raise two beautiful kids. She is happily married. Talking about her family, she said ‘”I think having the support of my husband and my family really essentially prepared me to take on this big role and this big opportunity,” Lazkani told People.’
What Is The Show About?
The show mainly revolves around the Oppenheim Group, which is a real estate firm in the heart of Los Angeles. The show follows a group of agents as they navigate and figure out their personal and professional lives.
The show has a rating of 6.5 out of 10 on IMDb. In a sneak peek of season 5, the main topic of discussion seems to be the surprising romance between Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Staus. Chrishell defended the relationship saying that ‘we are not doing anything wrong.’ Jason added that ‘I care about her deeply and we are very happy together’.
The couple first came out publicly with their romance back in July 2021 when they were on a trip together in Italy.
Who Else Stars In The Selling Sunset’s Cast
The series will also see the return of cast that includes Chrishell Stause, Christine Quinn, Davina Potratz, Heather Rae Young, Amanza Smith, Maya Vander, Romain Bonnet, Mary Fitzgerald, and also Johnson and Brett Oppenheim. The Oppenheim duo will most probably be in the center of the season’s plot as romance and breakup will be some of the main themes of the season.
Fans are excited of the return of this show. It will be exciting to see how Chelsea fits with the whole group of people who already have a dynamic with each other. Time will tell if Chelsea is able to make her way into people’s hearts or not.
