Bravo is finding more reasons for us to stay tuned in on their channel. They’ve announced the renewals of three shows: Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing New York and Shahs of Sunset.  They’ve also announced the addition of three new shows coming soon: Southern Charm Savannah, First Family of Hip Hop and Relative Success with Tabatha.

We already knew that Southern Charm‘s fourth season was filming, but now comes the official confirmation. AND in even better Southern Charm news: Kathyrn Dennis confirmed that she IS back on board with the cast, despite those Tweets she shared a few weeks back, announcing her departure from the show (which she later deleted).

Bethenny Fredrik

Bravo loves a crossover…almost as much as its stars! Bethenny Frankel isn’t afraid to speak her mind or flaunt her time with famous cohorts. The Real Housewives of New York star was recently spotted palling around with another Big Apple reality star of the real estate porn kind–Million Dollar Listing New York’s Fredrik Eklund. Of course, this pairing is more than a friendship, it’s a working relationship of the multi-million dollar kind.

With her drawn out divorce from Jason Hoppy finalized in July, that means the ex-hubs has vacated Bethenny’s one-time dream apartment. Now Bethenny is ready to start fresh, and let the apartment be someone else’s dream home. And obviously, if one decides to sell prime real estate in the heart of Manhattan, they need to enlist the best to make sure the property goes for asking price. That’s where the kung fu kicking agent comes in!

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.

Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis married in Greece

Today is an exciting day for Million Dollar Listing New York fans – not only does the season finale of Million Dollar Listing New York air tonight, but also, Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis were married in Greece today. Which I’m sure was a total coincidence. 😉

Earlier this year, Ryan shared, “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.

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.

Carole Radziwill

New York was in the house tonight on Watch What Happens Live.  The Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radzwill and Million Dollar Listing New York star Ryan Serhant were Andy Cohen’s guests and the two dished on their co-stars and the drama on the current seasons of their shows. 

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.”

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 Lesseps plan 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.”
