Despite her departure from The Oppenheim Group, Davina hopes she'll still appear on Selling Sunset.

She told People, 'I certainly hope that I’m still part of the cast.'

'Brett is not at The Oppenheim Group anymore either, so I don’t think that that’s going to be an issue at all.'

Where is Brett going?

One of the group's agents, Christine Quinn spilled the beans of Brett's departure with Glamour Magazine in August.

She told them, 'Brett has left to start his own brokerage.'

The real estate agent hinted the upcoming fourth season could reveal, 'the battle of the brokerages!'

However, Brett's brother Jason slammed the claims in an interview with Lorraine the following month.

When asked if the reports were, "nonsense," he replied, "It is unfortunately."

"I know that that would create for some interesting press."

Jason continued, "I think Christine tried to fan those flames."

He insisted, "No, [Brett's] not starting his own brokerage and hiring agents and competing, we're still working together."
