Why does the Selling Sunset star have a real Tiger in her home?
Christine Quinn has become a global star after her appearance on the first three seasons of the reality TV show, Selling Sunset.
The quirky and outspoken agent is usually on the periphery of all the drama, and she has become one of the most talked-about stars on the show.
Quinn has even thought about stepping away from the real estate series to start her own show, as she wanted more screen time.
In the meantime she featured on MTV Cribs and fans were surprised to see she was keeping a live tiger in her garden.
When asked why she kept the wild animal outside her home, she said it was for security reasons as her home was featured on Selling Sunset.
She and her husband Christian Richard also have armed guards and a unit of dogs surrounding the home.
She told the Daily Star her neighbour had recognised the house on TV, which means plenty of people will know where she lives.
She said: “That was a little scary to me because we are here a lot. And now, when we are away, we take extra precautions. The death threats I had were terrifying.”
Those who have watched Selling Sunset have mixed opinions on Quinn, and while some love her flamboyant and outspoken approach to life, others have criticised her.
Wanting to step the security up a notch, she decided a tiger was the one way to keep strangers out of their home.
She is known for her love of extravagant detail, and fans only need look at her gothic Winter Wonderland wedding photos to understand her unique taste.
Quinn said it would be “fun” to have a real tiger guarding the house, and she managed to find someone who trains tigers as domestic animals.
The star said she had been up close and personal with the tiger and he was particularly friendly.
Fans will be keen to see whether the tiger appears in Selling Sunset season four, which Quinn suggested was in the making.
There has been a debate over whether it is safe for people to keep tigers as household pets, with the Netflix series Tiger King exploring the dangers and morals of keeping wild animals.
Fans expected nothing less of Quinn when they caught a glimpse of inside her home, and she introduced viewers to her two dogs – Teddy Krueger and TJ.
The star’s home is full of black decor as she has mentioned before it is her favourite colour. The house also includes a games room and a home cinema.

The star said she grew up watching MTV Cribs and the Texan-born star considered the show to be extravagant.
She was keen to get involved when she discovered MTV was running a reboot of the series, which will also star Caitlyn Jenner, TOWIE star Gemma Collins and RuPaul’s Drag Race queen Alyssa Edwards.
The star said she has loved spending time in her stunning home during lockdown, as she and her husband have turned their guest bedrooms into their own personal spaces.
She has been spending a lot more time cooking in their kitchen and watching TV in their home cinema.
Quinn said she would love to host her own reality show or talk show, as she preferred shows like Cribs which are not scripted.
Fans loved her on the MTV show and called her a “real-life Barbie doll” as she toured her home in a beautiful floral dress.
One fan said on Instagram: “You were meant to be on TV! I hope you look into acting, you definitely know how to entertain!
“And I personally love when you change your voice to different accents, this video just reminded me ‘Darlin’ Hahaha #Talent Love your dress!!! Light colors suit you soo well!!! [sic]”
Another fan said: “Now, this is how you do MTV Cribs.. take it from a realtor agent and the most gorgeous, witty and funny woman everrrr [sic]”
Fans are keen to see more of Quinn in the fourth season of Selling Sunset, and she spoke to This Morning to say her boss Jason Oppenheim had confirmed the show had been picked up again.
Netflix is yet to officially confirm the fourth season, but Quinn seemed certain it was just a matter of time before they started filming again.
