Who is Selling Sunset's Emma Hernan dating?

Emma Hernan of “Selling Sunset” is the definition of a multi-hyphenate. She’s a luxury real estate agent at the Oppenheim Group, a vegan empanada entrepreneur, an Olympic qualifying swimmer — and in her own words, “a daredevil.”

This season, as marieclaire.com reported, Selling Sunset gave Emma Hernan a break from being solely Christine Quinn's mortal enemy—which, to be clear, also happened, but wasn't her only storyline this time around—and followed her blossoming romance with handsome property developer Micah McDonald. Micah, who describes himself on Instagram as "an entrepreneur, president and CEO, and hybrid athlete," was introduced to Emma by way of the multi-million dollar mansion he'd built, and went on to test-drive her empanadas for his mezcal bar (which was much more flirtatious than it sounds). After that, there was more flirtation, more multi-million dollar houses, a little drama with Christine—because what cast member on Selling Sunset doesn't have drama with Christine?—and, finally, a hot tub date in the season finale in which they got very close.

Selling Sunset season 5 filmed in late 2021, specifically November and December, so we're about five months out now—meaning that it's been five months after Emma and Micah hit it off. So, are they together now?

Since filming wrapped, their relationship has “progressed a little bit,” as Emma told ET on April 22. “Me and Micah definitely have something special,” she said. “We’re definitely still enjoying each other’s company.” So far, it doesn’t sound like they’re exclusive, but she teased that the next chapter of Selling Sunset could bring new developments: “Maybe Season 6, there will be a label, a ring. Who knows?”

“Whether it be with a new person I’m dating, whether it’s Micah, whether it’s my ex…"

“I’m single, I don’t have to answer to anybody". “I’m living my best life, I might spend time with my ex. It might be fun.”

In the meantime, as bustle.com reported, Emma sparked dating rumors with another man: her ex Peter Cornell, aka the fellow Oppenheim employee whom both she and Christine Quinn previously dated. After photographers spotted Emma and Peter having lunch in February, however, a source told to Us Weekly that they were “not dating,” and have simply remained friends since their 2018 split. What’s more, the insider added that Emma was single and “loving” it, though the Selling Sunset star has said Cornell might be angling for a reconciliation.

And about that Ben Affleck Raya interaction? The Selling Sunset star doubled down that it did happen — despite Affleck’s team denying it. “It was 2019, it was a very long time ago.”

Hernan told People that she became close with Fitzgerald after meeting her through the Oppenheim twins, whom she's also friends with outside of the office.

I just happened to know them prior to even getting super involved in real estate."
