Looking back at the past year, Ryanreflected, “I can’t believe this year is over. My team grew in size by 20%. We increased gross commissions by almost 40%. I got married! And I am on the way to New Zealand for our honeymoon! I have everything I need!”
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.
Andy Cohen has been busy in the Bravo Clubhouse. So busy, in fact, that he’s enlisting help from his celebrity friends as temporary late night hosts! Look Who’s Hosting Live, a new Bravo show in which celebrities becomes hosts of their very own late night talk show – for one night only – is one of seven new shows in the works for Bravo.
Bravo describes the celebrity spin on Watch What Happens Live as a chance for wannabe hosts to do it all: “From writing monologues, to picking their sidekicks and guests, these hosts-for-a-night will get the chance to live out their fantasy and design their dream show.” But does celebrity mean Bravolebrity? Are we gonna get to see Ramona Singer interviewing some hapless starlet while sucking down Pinot from her new beer goggles? Because if so, then…yes please!
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.”
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.
While some of the reality TV stars in the path of Winter Storm Jonas hightailed it to Florida (We’re looking at you, Luann and Ramona!), others stayed behind to weather the storm. Then they took to Instagram to share pics. Nothing – not even a blizzard – can get between these reality TV stars and their social media.
