Christine Quinn claims “Selling Sunset” producer Adam DiVello told her to “kill” herself.

“We have to look at what Adam DiVello has done as a whole, as a human being, as the person that he is,” Quinn, 33, told host Alexandra Cooper on Tuesday’s episode of the “Call Her Daddy” podcast.

“There’s been complaints filed against him. Multiple complaints … and it’s been sick,” she alleged. “He actually told me to go fall down the stairs and kill myself at one point.”

The reality star – who’s been dubbed the villain of the hit Netflix series – claimed DiVello allegedly made the threatening comments after she did an interview accusing producers of using “editing magic” to create a false story about her.

“He was threatening me and yelling at me. There were other people around, witnesses to this,” Quinn claimed.

“He basically berated me for being too honest and I said, ‘This is my real life and this didn’t happen and you know this,’ to which then he was screaming and yelling at me.”

The real estate agent further claimed that she has lodged various complaints against him, noting that he’s also been accused of “sexual misconduct.”

“That wasn’t the first complaint I filed against him. There was another complaint to where he, to this day, cannot set foot on set with any of the women in the office because of misconduct,” she alleged.

Quinn also alleged that production bullies the cast into saying certain lines in order to create drama.

“It is a male-dominated industry in the production field to which they manipulate women. They harass them. They just mentally torture and intimidate them,” Quinn said.

“They’ll say, ‘If you say this word, if you say this sentence, we’ll let you leave.’ And so after three hours … it comes to a point where we’re just like, ‘Fine, I’ll say that, I don’t care.’ So it’s the intimation tactics.”

She added, “I want to clarify here. It’s Adam DiVello. Adam DiVello is the one who owns the production company, which is the same one who did ‘The Hills’ and made Heidi [Montag] and Spencer [Pratt] look like they were crazy.”

Quinn, who admitted that she has been playing the part of the villain since the beginning of the show, expressed that she believes the show would have been better off without DiVello’s production company, Done and Done Productions, controlling the narrative.

“I think the show could have been successful without the production company to which it was run by. Absolutely,” she said. “I think it would have been so inspirational and I think we could have played along with the drama but when we’re working with people telling us what to do, how to say [something], even wardrobe notes, you know, push up your cleavage…It’s hard you really can’t win.”

DiVello’s rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

Quinn has been the center of the drama through the reality show’s five seasons. Co-star Emma Hernan previously alleged that Quinn tried to bribe her longtime client with $5,000 to never work with the vegan empanadas queen again.

Shortly after, Quinn said she terminated her contract with The Oppenheim Group weeks before the Season 5 reunion of “Selling Sunset,” which she skipped because she allegedly tested positive for COVID-19. However, co-stars Mary Fitzgerald and Chrishell Stause alleged she never had the virus.

Just this week, Quinn revealed she would be returning for Season 6 of “Selling Sunset.”
