It’s so unsettling to hear about people being anti-Semitic in 2016. I figured society would already be past having such prejudicial thoughts, but that is sadly not the case. Unfortunately, Million Dollar Listing star Matt Altman is going through a tough time these days.
Not only has Matt been the victim of anti-Semitic sentiments, but he has also received death threats in conjunction with that. Even though Matt has filed a [temporary] restraining order, it is still a horrifying situation.
Fredrik Eklund never slows down! The Million Dollar Listing New York star has a crazy successful real estate business, just bought a new house, and a new apartment and now he’s launching a new web series for Bravo, “Ka-Ching!”
Fredrik is hosting 12 mini episodes (each one is under 2 minutes) for the digital series, which will feature stories of insane wealth and luxury – like $20,000 first class flights, $500,000 dog collars, million dollar shoes, $250,000 manicures and so much more.
Ryan Serhant is often seen dishing it out to his Million Dollar Listing New York co-stars Luis D. Ortiz and Fredrik Eklund, but in last week’s episode they were seen giving it right back..sort of. Ryan admits that he’s been mean to his co-stars, but he’s never lied about them the way they did about him. Ryan was accused of buying Instagram likes and he’s not too happy about it.
He shares, “Well this was an interesting episode.” He was glad that we got to see his team in action and gives them a lot of credit for how hard they work. “I was excited to watch the beginning of the 38 West 87th storyline, as it is one of my favorites, but then I saw the little coffee scene between Fredrik and Luis.”
The first question from a viewer asks why Carole won’t accept Luann’s apology? “She didn’t apologize and this scene was eight months after she said lots of really nasty stuff, crazy misogynistic stuff.” Andy asks Carole if she said nasty stuff, too? “I didn’t. With these women you need evidence, I wish I had brought all of her Tweets and interviews. It’s one thing to say you don’t like my boyfriend or something but she was age-shaming, she was female-bashing. That kind of misogynistic bullshit. You don’t need to hear it from not only a woman, but someone you considered a friend.”
Good news – maybe?! – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already been renewed. Bad news – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast won’t change much for season seven. Why can’t we have nice things?
Earlier today, Bravo announced the six new and fourteen returning shows that will fill its summer and fall schedules. Obviously, RHOBH is on the list for fall. It will be a while before the cast is set in stone and revealed; however, when a fan tweeted @ Andy Cohen that Lisa Rinna, Yolanda Foster, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson must go, he replied, “No way!”
Are y’all still with me? If you haven’t taken a sledgehammer to your phone/tablet/computer because of Andy‘s bad judgementTweet, look below to find out what other questionable choices goodies Bravo has in store for viewers.
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.
