Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream


With four seasons of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing under his belt and a new memoir, Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream, real estate agent Josh Flagg continues to ride the wave of success.

We were able to catch up with Josh to talk about the current season of MDL, why he decided to pen his memoir at a young age, the growing popularity of his grandma Edith, and whether or not he plans to return next season. “I haven’t the slightest idea,” says Josh, though he expects MDL to return for a season five.

Not too many people pen their memoirs at age 25, which brings the question why now? Well, Josh credits a special person in his life for pushing him to write his book. “My grandmother suggested I write about myself and after careful thought, I realized I do have a pretty interesting story to tell,” Josh tells Reality Tea. “In fact, we had so much that we had to censor a lot and take things OUT. Believe me, there was more than enough material to go with.”

Josh believes fans of the show will get a better insight into the person he is by reading Million Dollar Agent, which also serves as an inspirational how-to book for making it in the dog-eat-dog world of real estate. “I am a very private person on camera, so I think the book will help people understand who I really am,” says Josh. “It is also a fabulous tool for someone who wants to get somewhere but does not know where to start.”

So is his granny Edith Flagg aware of her popularity with fans of the show? “She is aware. She does not understand the fascination,” Josh says, adding that she does “get a kick out” of being recognized on the streets and fans coming up to ask for pictures with her. Josh also reveals he is still working with the twins from the show, Marissa and Julianna Stoap.

And of course, we had to touch on the whole coming out issue as Josh officially came out as a gay man on the last episode of MDL. When asked what the response has been like from fans, Josh makes it clear the whole ordeal wasn’t a big deal to him. “People make such a big deal out of it like it was a life changing experience for me,” he says. “Yes I am a gay man… so is every other “hetero” in Hollywood.”

On that note, the finale of Million Dollar Listing airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. You can keep up with Josh via his twitter page at @JoshFlagg1.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE MILLION DOLLAR LISTING FINALE?


A huge episode of Million Dollar Listing will air tonight on Bravo, during which real estate agent Josh Flagg will officially come out as being gay.

While all of the stars on the show, including former cast member Chad Rodgers, had allowed their love lives to be a part of the show, Josh was the only one to keep that part of his life private.

Well, that all changes tonight as Josh makes the revelation both on the show and in his new memoir Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream, which also comes out today.

According to Josh, 25, he is very pleased with the way he chose to come out. “You know my sexuality does not define me, it is not who I am, but rather it is part of me, and I did not ever want people to think of me as “the gay real estate guy,” I did not want that to be the only demographic that was watching me on TV or the only demographic to associate with me,” said Josh in an interview with San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.

“I am very glad I did things the way I did because I feel I eased people into it and I made people comfortable with ME, and then kind of just dropped the fact that I like guys instead of girls. Many people knew, many had no idea,” he added.

And how does Josh feel about his costar Madison Hildebrand, who also came out on the show, beating him to the punch? “Madison did not beat me to the punch. Madison just decided to come out on national television before I did, but as far as I know, I was out to the people I wanted to be out to well before Madison was. At the rate we are going, we might have to change the title of the show to “Two Homos and the Straight Dude.”" joked Josh adding that though he respects Madison’s approach, he chose to take “a different approach, a more subtle approach, and I kind of like the way Bravo did it … slowly revealing my life, because for the most part no one knows anything about my life other than what they can read on the Internet or what they see on the show with my family, but my private life was always kind of a mystery.”

Josh also reveals that his fellow castmate Josh Altman has been supportive. “He is a great guy and a good friend of mine and we have gotten closer since filming the show,” said Josh. “We do some business together and we get along real well. I have nothing bad to say about Josh Altman whatsoever.”

Josh is currently in a relationship with long term boyfriend Colton Thorn. Photos of Josh and Colton below. MDL airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. A preview clip is below -
