Emma Hernan is 30 and was a model before joining the Selling Sunset cast

Emma is 30 and was born in Boston, Massachusetts. She started her career as a model and became Miss COED in 2015. COED is a news, entertainment, sports, and lifestyle website, and Miss COED is nationwide competition to find confident college students who are involved in their universities and social media. Previous winners include three Playboy Playmates.

Emma started working in business aged just 14, when she began investing. She was reportedly helping to finance her family’s business by the age of 17. “I took all my modelling money, all my babysitting money, all my ice cream money – I worked at every store, I loved working – and I started investing in the stock market and health care,” Emma told Nylon. “I self-taught myself just by reading and learning, and that’s how I got into investing.”

She has big drama with Christine already

In the show, Christine explains that she and Emma have a very messy history together. Christine found her ex-boyfriend cheating on her with Emma. The incident happened years ago, but Christine goes on to say this was part of her and Mary’s friendship deteriorating too, as Mary went on to become close friends with Emma, despite everything that had happened. Christine describes Mary staying friends with Emma as “surprising” and “a betrayal”.

However, Mary says she “knows for a fact” that Christine and her ex’s relationship was over when Emma began seeing him, and Emma played “no part” in Christine’s breakup.

Emma also has owns a vegan food company

As well as being in real estate, Emma is a successful entrepreneur. She works in vegan food, and is the CEO of her own frozen food company called Emma-Leigh & Co, which launched in 2020. In November 2020, she partnered with Beyond Meat to launch her own range of plant-based mini beef empanadas.

On her website, Emma says: “As a professional model, many see me. However, what they don’t see is the deep drive and commitment within me to succeed on every level. Whether it was studying in between modelling jobs at age fourteen, practicing hours on end every day for national swim competitions or learning at the feet of master professional chefs, I have always been driven to make generations of my family proud. It’s in my blood.”

Despite her huge history with Christine, Emma is now stepping in to cover her at The Oppenheim Group whilst she has her baby. Honestly, the devil works hard but Jason Oppenheim and the Selling Sunset team work way harder.

According to her profile on The Oppenheim Group website, after purchasing her first home in the Hollywood Hills, Emma’s passion for real estate led her to become a realtor, and joining The Oppenhiem Group in 2018, focusing on selling high-end real estate throughout Los Angeles.

On her profile she describes herself as a “self-made millionaire” who “prides herself on being a dynamic and relentless agent for her clients, with her boundless energy and market knowledge, always truly caring for each and everyone of her clients in the fast paced Los Angeles real estate market.”
