Alexandra Rose Reveals Why ‘Selling the OC’ Cast ‘Shunned’ Her

From outcast to on-cast.

Selling the OC star Alexandra Rose says casting decisions for the Netflix series were behind her Oppenheim Group colleagues’ icy behavior towards her and BFF Alexandra Jarvis.

The reality star, 27, tells Vidak For Congress exclusively that she and Jarvis, 32, weren’t originally cast for the “Selling Sunset” spin-off, leaving those chosen behaving “superior.”

“Everyone’s energy just changed a little bit and no one talked to us,” Rose shares via a Zoom interview.

“Everyone thought they were superior to us, and Alex Hall, Polly [Brindle], they were bullies. They were mean and mean and shunned us like we were chopped liver.”

Rose says Hall and Brindle “didn’t” treat her and Jarvis with respect — and the tension was certainly caught on camera when the “joke” brokers were eventually cast.

“You guys just walk around and rub your stink on everything in the office,” Hall told the duo at a casino party in episode 8. “You’re the bullies.”

A puzzled Rose then replied, “We are the bullies?!”

Alexandra Rose claims that Alex Hall and Polly Brindle were “bullies” to her and Alexandra Jarvis because they weren’t originally cast for “Selling the OC.”

The luxury real estate agent explains that her colleagues’ criticism of giving them an “attitude” was because she actually “felt uncomfortable being around them.”

“All they did was yell and talk loudly and be obnoxious, and I’m just not like that,” she tells us. “So being in a room with them was very uncomfortable for me, and I felt very socially awkward because in a way they just suck the energy out of my soul.”

Rose concludes, “I just didn’t feel welcome and felt completely shunned.”

Ahead of Season 1 of “Selling the OC,” which even debuts on August 24, the Netflix star claims to have received apologies from castmates Tyler Stanaland and Kayla Cardona.

“They were mean and mean and shunned us like we were chopped liver,” Rose says of her co-stars.

Rose adds that Stanaland, in particular, has told her that he is “interested in having a friendship” with her and that he “agreed” that Hall and Brindle acted like “bullies” on the show.

However, Hall tells Vidak For Congress that Rose’s accusations are “not fair” because there is more to it.

“We don’t have them ice cold,” Hall says. “They came in with different intentions than we came in with.”

Hall, 33, explains that she was “confused” when Rose and Jarvis went into drama that happened between cast members when they weren’t supposed to be on the show initially.

Hall says she and her colleagues formed an opinion about Rose and Jarvis prior to filming.

“There are so many situations that they weren’t a part of, that they haven’t experienced first hand, that they haven’t seen with their own eyes, and then they want to come on the scene and say, ‘Well, you got this… “You weren’t even there,” she says.

Hall notes that she and some of her Oppenheim Group colleagues had already formed “opinions” about Rose and Jarvis, since they had just worked in an office together — and had nothing to do with the show.

“We’re a real office,” says the broker in Orange County, California. “We really all work together in an office, and it’s a very, very complex, dramatic environment because there are a lot of personalities. … It does not mean that opinions will not be formed based on what we see and what our experience is.”

Hall concludes: “I think they should take their part in that position, and they can’t blame us for getting them out of the way. That’s not fair.”
