Selling Sunset returns next week, with season four set to be bigger and more dramatic than ever. Amanza Smith, 43, joined the Netflix series in season two and has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about what fans can expect to see in the new series. The star also hinted at some of her new projects away from the show, urging her fans to “watch this space”.

Speaking with Express.co.uk, Amanza revealed the new projects she had been working on during the lockdown and when fans could expect to see them released.

Amanza began: “Basically, after the lockdown, I took a step away from actually selling homes, not completely on purpose.

“But during the pandemic, as the newest agent, I couldn’t meet people, I couldn’t go out to social events, and that’s how you get your clients when you’re new.

“You have to socialise at different functions, and I wasn’t able to do that, so I just really leaned back into designing, and I started designing furniture and still staging homes.

“A lot of that you don’t see on camera because it was before we started filming, but I did take on a really big project at the beginning of season four,” Amanza revealed.

She continued: “I’m designing a 3000 square foot store in Santa Monica, and you’ll see a bit of that [in the show], and then I think in season five, you’ll see the finished product.

“That will be open the middle of November, it’s called the She-E-O project and it’s all about women empowerment.

“All of the front of the store is a retail space, so we have several different brands, all women-owned brands.

“Then the entire store was designed by me and in the back of the store, there are these moments, they’re called activations.

“And they’re little like photo-op moments, I don’t know if you’ve heard of like the Museum of Candy, the Museum of Ice Cream, there’s all these museums that have popped up over the last couple years,” the mother of two teased.

Describing her vision, she added: “They’re basically just very photographable like themes, and so the back of the store is very much like that, but it’s for women empowerment.

“There’s one area in this design, you photograph in it, and it looks like you’re sitting in a first-class like a jet, you know, a private jet.

“There’s a big candy wall, and there’s a sign that says, ‘Be your own sugar daddy,’ and it’s just about women being independent, being boss b*****s.

“The store really encompasses all of that, and I think this store will be, it’s a pop-up, but we have it for seven months.

“Hopefully, if it goes as well, as we envisioned, we’ll be able to stay there indefinitely and then hopefully, we can pop these stores up across the United States and then hopefully, internationally,” she revealed.

“It’s a really great concept and, the space is also an event space, people can rent it out for fashion shoots, runway shows, listening parties, different events.

“It’s just a really beautiful space, and I think that it’s gonna be really successful, so everybody needs to come and check it out.

“My partner’s name is Tanisha Brown and she’s the one who came up with the concept and then hired me on to be the creative director, but I fell in love with the idea of it so much that now I’ve partnered up with her.

“So, the middle of November, the She-E-O project at the Santa Monica Place, so hopefully you’ll see those pop up all around and maybe in the UK, watch this space.”

Selling Sunset season 4 is available to stream on Netflix on November 24.
