Netflix’s hit show Selling Sunset season 5 is set to stream on April 22! With the return of the hit show comes a fresh face by the name of Chelsea Lazkani! Here are a few things we know about the show’s latest newcomer.
The British-Nigerian luxury realtor is the wife of Jeff Lazkani, and they share two beautiful children together. The pair married in 2017 and welcomed their son Maddox Ali Lavon in 2019 and Melia Iman in 2020. The luxury realtor has multiple degrees and is a graduate of the University of Birmingham in England and University of Dundee in Scotland.
Prior to 2017, she worked in the corporate world in the oil and gas industry before obtaining her real estate license. Before joining the Oppenheim Group, Chelsea was an agent at Rodeo Realty which is another L.A. based agency. Chelsea stated in an exclusive with People, “For me personally, I saw this as an opportunity to really open doors in an industry that has lacked diversity and where minorities are underrated. This was kind of my time to give back and to educate and really mentor and push forward Black women in this luxury sector in real estate.”
Chelsea talked about how her co-stars have played as a source of inspiration to her future. In People she noted, “It kind of helps me see my future trajectory by being around so many successful women. It helps materialize the fact that I can be selling $20 million, $30 million, $40 million homes, seeing other women in close proximity to me doing it.” Chelsea will serve as a source of inspiration for many women of color as she cements her presence on the upcoming season of Selling Sunset!
When it comes to what viewers can expect to see on this upcoming season, Chelsea wrote on her Instagram, “The laughs, the lux, the drama, it’s all there in season 5 and I can’t wait for you all to see it!” Everyone stay tuned to see what the new season will hold for the women of Selling Sunset, especially newcomer, Chelsea Lazkani.
Season 5 of Selling Sunset will stream on Netflix on April 22!
