Million Dollar Listing

If you’re like me, you were very excited to tune in to last night’s super sized premiere of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. For me, the anticipation was even greater than normal, given I’d spent my afternoon chatting over tea and crumpets with the lovely David Parnes and James Harris. Both gentlemen were incredibly easy to talk to, complimentary, and gracious. I may create some kind of mix of their responses on my sound machine so that their lilting accents can lull me to sleep at night? Weird? I’m totally kidding then…

Yesterday I shared my interview with James, and he filled us in on working the Malibu scene with Madison Hildebrand while refraining from dishing any dirt on his dear pal David. Did David return the favor? You’ll have to read and see. He does share some crazy open house shenanigans (I’m going to replay in my mind him excitedly stating “pandemonium!” while figuring out how to work that word into my everyday vocabulary, using his accent when I say it, of course) and hints about difficult times in his personal life we’ll be privy to this season.

Cheerio, y’all! Without a doubt, the most amazing part of this job is getting to interview the fancy folks I get to watch each week on television. Every time, I’m happily surprised by how down to earth these people are – but this time, I wasn’t shocked at all. I knew the British gentlemen from Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles would exude nothing but grace and class – what a privilege to get to chat with James Harris and David Parnes!

With the premiere of MDLLA looming this evening at 9 PM/ET on Bravo, it was a huge treat to get to speak to two of the most gracious reality stars on the planet. In an effort to give you dear readers twice the accent and double the gentility, I’ve split their separate interviews into two posts. Tonight, please enjoy a peek into the charismatic personality that is James Harris. He’s absolutely every bit as precious as he appears on the show…maybe more so!


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!

The Joshes? Obviously one is hilariously precious and the other just got hitched (I’m sure we’ll be privy to the planning of said nuptials). The Brits? They shouldn’t Brexit just yet. However, Joshes and Brits aside, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles is welcoming back a familiar face, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Madison Hildebrand, the formerly surfer coiffed, snarkily hot, sometime whiny, dog revering real estate agent, is returning to the Bravo show that gifts us with Robin Leach style California real estate porn. He’s the Malibu Ken of beach front property, and I cannot wait for his homecoming and the new season in general. Let’s be honest, Madison is beyond fabulous, and Josh Flagg is adorably neurotic. Don’t forget Josh Altman‘s ego, which is endearing when he lets down his guard, and the baby faces and beautiful accents of James Harris and David ParnesAdd it all together… and you have got a recipe for reality success!


Josh and Heather Altman honeymoon

When you are real estate super stars – not to mention have a grueling filming schedule, you can’t just jet set off to France on whim. Or for your honeymoon, apparently. But, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles stars Josh and Heather Altman finally did just that, four months after their Aspen wedding.

Josh shared the pic above on Instagram, captioning it, “Heather and I getting our chateau on somewhere in the South of France.”

Selling luxury real estate does a passport good, that is for sure. In the past few months, Kyle and Mauricio vacationed in Italy, Josh Flagg got engaged in the South of France, Fredrik Eklund enjoyed Italy and Sweden, and Ryan and Emilia got married in Greece. Thankfully, we can live vicariously through them via their Instagram accounts. Look below for more pics from Josh and Heather’s honeymoon to Saint-Tropez.



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.

Happy Monday! Take a look at what the reality stars did over the weekend in our new reality star sightings photo roundup! Above: Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey attended the Vision Community Foundation 5th Annual Black Tie Gala in Atlanta.  Ditching Peter looks good on her, no?

Claudia Jordan, Tia Mowry, Toni Braxton and more walked the red carpet at the BET Awards in L.A. last night. Did you watch? What’d you think of the Prince tributes? What about Beyonce’s surprise performance?
