Real estate and reality show star Maya Vander took to her Instagram page in December of last year to confirm the sad news she had a stillbirth after 38 weeks of pregnancy. The Selling Sunset regular has now opened up more about the ordeal when the Oppenheim Group returned to Netflix for a special reunion episode to talk through the highs and lows of season five.
Maya revealed more details about the experience of her stillbirth when the Selling Sunset stars talked through the latest season with Queer Eye’s Tan France.
Tan remarked the Oppenheimers all shared a lot of details about their personal lives, both throughout the series and on social media.
He then gently prompted Maya to talk through her own sad experience which occurred near the end of last year.
“I had a feeling it was going to come to my story,” Maya said.

Tan asked her: “Maya we were so sorry to hear the sad news about your baby. How are you doing, how’s the family?”
“Much better,” Maya confirmed. “It’s been four and a half months and we mentioned earlier, time helps. And I think time does help.”
Maya and her husband David Miller have had time to process the loss with the help of their Selling Sunset co-stars, but she was clearly emotional as she recalled the experience.
She told her colleagues: “I just want to say, obviously, thanks, to each one of you.
The long-time Oppenheim Group member has recently confirmed she doesn’t have any plans to return to Selling Sunset for season six, instead deciding to focus on her family commitments.
“I have my husband, he’s amazing,” she continued. “My kids are great, they keep me going.
“I work, and I’m busy, so I don’t have time to sit and cry all day long. I have my moments, you know, we all do.
“That’s part of grief. Just taking this opportunity to, I guess, raise the voice for stillbirth and pregnancy loss.
“I feel like I’m inspiring women and I think it helps a little bit for other women to know they’re not alone.”
On December 10 last year, Maya announced the tragic news with a sad photo of a memory box containing clothes intended to be given to her baby.
