It is so strange to think about Luis D. Ortiz leaving his real estate career behind. Not only is it what he has been known for, but it is obviously a major factor that allowed him to be a part of the Million Dollar Listing New York cast. So I am sure that it was very hard for him to quit both his day job and his career as a reality star.
If you watch the show, you know that saying this was a tough decision for him is definitely an understatement, but now that some time has passed since the season was filmed, Luis has had even more to say about the big choice that he has had to make.
Earlier this year, Ryanshared, “We’re doing it on an island, off an island, off an island. It’s going to be very, very pretty, and elaborate. It took us a year and a half to put it together. But like I told her after the proposal, ‘Listen, I’m only ever doing this once in my life. So we’re gonna do this once. It’s going to be awesome and you’re just gonna have to kill me because I can’t afford to do this ever again.’ Same thing for the wedding.”
Bravo was present for the wedding (of course!) so we’ll get to see it this fall on the Million Dollar Listing New York Ryan’s Wedding special. Because of the special, wedding photos my be hard to come by, but we’ll keep looking. For now, we have gathered up the (amazing!) pre-wedding pictures Ryan, Emilia, and Luis D. Ortiz have shared from Corfu, Greece, for your viewing pleasure.
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.”
