If you haven’t watched last night’s premiere of Million Dollar Listing New York yet, make sure you grab some tissues for the opening scenes. Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan shared back in September that the surrogate carrying their twins had suffered a miscarriage and Fredrik made the courageous decision to talk about their loss on this season of the show.
He blogged about making this painful decision, “I’m known for my happy spirit and tough business manners. You know me as ‘the closer and the listing machine.’ I do deals, I negotiate, and I move mountains for my clients. My entire life, when I look back at it, has gone pretty much according to plan. Not all the time, perhaps, but for the most-part, yes. Of course, I’ve had my fair share of failures in business, I was single for years before meeting Derek, and I’ve felt a lot of guilt over the years for leaving my family behind in Sweden. I’m not perfect in any way, but I’ve never been really sad or down for long periods of time. Whenever there is a challenge, I go head-to-head with it until it is solved. When there is personal drama, I fix it or move past it. I like to take the higher road and lift myself up whenever possible. I’ve even written a book on the topic of finding yourself and sharing that self in an honest way with the world.”
Tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live featured a pretty laid back Sonja Morgan and an always adorable Fredrik Eklund. Amy Schumer was originally scheduled to be there with Ramona, but Amy had a throat issue and is hoping to make an appearance next week, where Ramona is now scheduled.
They jump right in with questions. Is Sonja helping Luann de Lessepsplan her wedding? “We do spend a lot of time talking about it. She is over the moon excited.” Andy mentions that Sonja dated Lu’s guy, “That’s right, so I know both very well.” And she confirms that Ramona dated him, too. “It’s going to be very interesting, you’ll have to watch.”
Fredrik Eklund‘s career is soaring higher than a NYC skyscraper. The Million Dollar Lising: New York star has had a meteoric month which included moving to a new apartment, buying a country home, wrapping filming for season 5, and doing one of biggest deals of his career. Whew – and I thought I was busy … HA!
Somewhere… Ryan Serhant is bashing his head against a wall… (sarcasm) while Fredrik is high kicking all the way to the bank!
Last year Fredrik and his husband Derek Kaplan had several ups and downs and apparently decided it was time for new beginnings.
The couple tied the knot in Aspen, Colorado on Saturday and kept things very small and intimate. Josh and Heather limited their guest list to just close friends and family and had only 80 guests in all for their big day.
I’m easy to please, but Bravo’s spring line-up seems like it was created with just me in mind. I never realized just how much Andy Cohen loved me until now! 😉 Obviously, Andy has no clue who I am and Bravo is just appeasing the masses with the shows we love to watch, but I can’t help but think it’s a bit tailored to suit my binge-viewing. That’s right, folks! Get ready for some real estate porn, Manhattan style, courtesy of Ryan Serhant, Fredrik Eklund, and Luis D. Ortiz.
The multi-million dollar property peddling, Big Apple realtors are returning to Bravo! The fifth season of the Emmy-nominated Million Dollar Listing: New York is back with a super-sized 90-minute premiere on Thursday, April 21st at 9 PM ET/PT. As someone who works in real estate, this series is especially near and dear to my heart. I could look at listings all day long. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that two years ago I got to tout the show with an interview with Ryan (it may seem like a shameless plug, but I was so incredibly starstruck and he was nothing but kind and humble…the antithesis of his reality persona) where he revealed he was in love with the woman who is now his fiance.
Awesome news for all you Fredrik Eklund fans! It’s no secret that Fredrik is very popular on Million Dollar Listing: New York, so much so that there has even been some buzz about a possible spin-off in Eklund’s future. But it looks like he may not be doing a spin-off as he recently revealed that he will be getting his own radio show on SiriusXM! Seriously, how lucky can we get?
Yes, that’s right, folks. Teaming up with his brother Sigge, the duo will be taking on their own show, called Buying and Selling. And we’re sure You can guess (at least based on the title, ha) that Eklund’s show will be focused on Fredrik’s expertise with buying and selling. But it’s more than just real estate! What do we mean? Come on inside to find out.

Who’s the luckiest little boy in the world?! Well, this week, Derek Kaplan‘s son Kai is definitely in the running!
Confession Time: I am guilty of stalking Million Dollar Listing New York stars Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan on social media. But seriously, from the breathtaking views (um, of their travels and of the hot artist) to the inspirational stories, can you blame me?! This week, I was happy to see Derek’s son, Kai, again. Kai joined Fredrik and Derek on vacation in Greece in August, and ever since then, I’ve been hoping to see him again soon because he is seriously the cutest little boy.
Check out a few pictures of Kai‘s week in New York City with Derek and Daddy Warbucks, I mean, Fredrik below.
Million Dollar Listing fans were bummed back in 2014, when Josh Altman and Heather Bilyeu put their wedding on hold, when they couldn’t seem to agree on anything. But there was a reason for that – because they just had way too much to focus on, Altman dished recently.
And that is all behind the couple, who have been together for five years now (has it really been that long?), as they have decided to plan a wedding for next Spring. Hopefully, this time around things will go much smoother for Heather and Josh and they actually make it down the aisle.
