Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn forced to hire armed guards over safety fears
Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has been forced to hire armed guards over safety fears.
The red-hot estate agent’s outspoken persona has made her a target for death threats in recent months.
A string of measures have now been put in place at the LA home she shares with husband Christian Richard.
The bombshell has even hired a tiger to guard her at her mansion.
Christine, 31, said: "We have got full-time security. There are armed guards and canine unit dogs. We got it all because the house was featured on Selling Sunset. My neighbours recognised it and called me up.
“I realised it meant people knew where we live now. 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.
“We were warned that a lot of weird things were happening in the area and I joked, ‘If guns and dogs don’t scare people, we need a tiger'. .
Then I decided it would be really fun to do that. So we found this guy who trains tigers as pets and got one.
"When we’ve had the tiger, he isn’t even on a leash. I’ve been within a foot of him and I wasn’t nervous at all. He is so friendly."
She added: "I never thought I would be the kind of person who would need all this… having armed guards in the driveway.
"But I’m thankful to be in this position. You’re only hated if you’ve done something great. That’s how I like to look at it."
Christine has become a global star after Selling Sunset became a big hit for Netflix. It means she gets to live the life of her dreams.
She said: "When I was young, my family were poor. So it’s all very surreal for me to have this life.
"I didn’t grow up with these things. But I feel like I’ve worked really hard. I enjoy it and I love it."
Christine’s £3.8million mansion has a games room, bar, its own cinema and a swimming pool. Fans can get a glimpse inside on tomorrow’s episode of MTV’s Cribs.
Christine said: "I was so excited to do this show because I didn’t have to share screen time with other b****es.
"I can’t wait for people to see my home. My favourite is the games room. And I love my wardrobe – I have more than 400 pairs of shoes and I don’t know how many bags I have.
"My wardrobe is definitely worth more than £1m."
Watch Christine on Cribs tomorrow at 8pm on MTV
