Selling Sunset Fans Shocked After Original Cast Member Announces She's Leaving

It won't be the same without her!

Warning! This article contains spoilers for Selling Sunset.

Selling Sunset fans are devastated after learning that one of the original cast members is saying goodbye to the reality show after five seasons.

Fan favourite Maya Vander had viewers in tears this season when she announced her plans to leave the Oppenheim Group.

Watch her say her goodbyes here:

After splitting her time between the Los Angeles, California and Miami, Florida, Maya revealed that she was finally ready to pack up and move to Miami full time.

It was in season five's penultimate episode, Sabotage in Stilettos, that the Oppenheim team gave Maya a rather emotional send-off.

The Selling Sunset cast managed to put their feuds on the backburner to raise a toast to the iconic real estate agent before she headed for the sunshine state.

Maya made sure to go out with a bang, too, making a 'record-breaking' sale on a Santa Monica property for an eye-watering $12.995 million (£10.240 million).

Before closing the deal, Maya noted that it would be the perfect way to end her time in LA, saying: "If the clients will agree, it will be a great way to, you know, ‘Okay we closed this listing, go to Miami.'"

After binging the new season of the addictive reality series, heartbroken fans took to Twitter to discuss Maya's decision to leave.

"Can’t believe im crying my eyes out at maya leaving but i LOVE her and my heart breaks for her " wrote one upset fan.

"Not my good sis maya leaving, she the only one that never annoyed tf outta me #SellingSunset" tweeted a second.

Maya has been on Selling Sunset since it first started in 2019.(

"I’m sad maya is leaving. I hope she still pops up on the show. She’s the most unintentionally funny one on the show #SellingSunset" added a third.


And another suggested: "But can y’all give Maya her spin off in Miami though? Because I’m gonna miss her stirring the pot and being blunt! #SellingSunset".

Earlier in the season, fans' hearts broke for Maya when they discovered the devastating loss she had suffered late last year.

After announcing her pregnancy, Maya's baby was stillborn at 38 weeks in December 2021, which she shared with her followers on Instagram with a picture of the memory box containing baby clothes she took home from the hospital.

Maya revealed she her baby had been stillborn.  (

Paying tribute to her baby boy, whom she named Mason, the reality star explained that she decided to share the news because her pregnancy would be featured in the then upcoming season of Selling Sunset.

Maya is mother to Aiden, two, and Elle, one, with her husband David Miller.
