With a heavy heart and eyes filled with tears… Million Dollar Listing LA star Josh Flagg‘s grandmother, Edith Flagg, passed away this morning at 94. Hands down, Edith was the star of Million Dollar Listing, and she will be missed.
Josh shared the unfortunate news via Instagram: “At 6am this morning, Edith Flagg, my grandmother, passed away. She was my best friend. I love you Grandma, my darling wonderful woman. You are my hero. I will see you again one day… It may be a while… But I promise we will be together again.”
Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller had a line of fans waiting to meet her and a book signing and Lisa Vanderpump filmed some scenes for RHOBH with husband Ken Todd. Also spotted: LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian doing interviews to promote their (epically failing) show.
Last night on Million Dollar Listing Miami our brokers dealt with disappointment – and some handled it with class and some handled it with tantrums more nasty than the ones my toddler throws.
On the other side of the spectrum, Sam DeBianchi continued to bug as she gloated and tried to get camera time by slamming her fellow agents.
Chris Leavitt is working with Senada on a co-listing for a fabulous condo in Boca Raton. He’s calling every agent he knows who can bring the high-end jet set clientele to their open house, which is actually comprised of hosting the Miss Boca pageant. Chris was worried the event wouldn’t be classy – it wasn’t – but it certainly made a splash – bikinis not withstanding – and attracted a lot of attention.
"British transplants David Parnes and James Harris are making a name for themselves with their crisp suits and smooth selling moves. The duo and their firm Bond Street Partners – part of Mauricio Umansky's company – are forces to be reckoned grossing over $120 million in sales last year. Their sly business sense and international prowess make them a threat," promises Bravo. "Josh Altman's sights are set on growing The Altman Brothers into a worldwide real estate empire, but a mounting rift between fiance Heather and brother Matt may make planning his wedding even harder to manage. Josh Flagg has enjoyed the splendors of being a top agent in Beverly Hills, but with a slew of agents on the rise, he is forced to protect his precious piece of the pie."
Season 7 of Million Dollar Listing LA kicks off Wednesday, August 20 at 9PM ET/PT. Meet the newbies, David and James, and see the cast photos below.
My gut reaction was to stomp my foot and scream NOOOO! repeatedly. I didn't because I'm not three years old. But. Ugh. I loved Madison, Josh Flagg, and Josh Altman on the show together. They each bring something different to the table but also interact in a magical way. I wish Madison luck – and I will continue to follow him on Instagram (Hello, shirtless Madison, happy-go-lucky Maya, and breathtaking Malibu!) of course.
Bravo has expanded its Million Dollar Listing franchise – my favorite – with Million Dollar Listing Miami. The hot new show kicks off Wednesday, June 25 – and I seriously cannot wait.
"With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before," says Bravo. "The mansions are bigger, high-rises are taller, amenities are more lux, and locals have access to amazing views, beaches, and a lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next big listing."
Million Dollar Listing Miami features Chad Carroll, Samantha DeBianchi, the franchise's first female agent, and Chris Leavitt. Check out the cast bios and photos and the trailer below.
Well, if his book does what it he claims it will, Fredrik Eklund is going to be karate chopping his way to even more money! The green tea swilling star of Million Dollar Listing: New York not only kills it in the world of real estate, he plans to take the New York Times bestseller list by storm as well.
The New York Post speculated that Fredrik and lifestyle guru Bruce Littleton just inked a six-figure deal to write a book to be published by Penguin which shares "the tricks used to convince people 'to love you, listen to you and buy whatever you are selling.'” Where do I sign up for my advance copy?
You all know Million Dollar Listing: New York is one of my guilty pleasures for Fredrik Eklund's karate moves alone. However, no one does frat boy charm and silly arrogance quite like Ryan Serhant. Those eyes. That pig (I miss you, Kevin Bacon!). Those suits (gracious, those suits). Sure, he often comes across as a cocky S.O.B., but I think he's a real softie underneath it all.
Of course, I should know given that I got to chat with Ryan before this season's premiere. Most exciting ten minutes of my March, by far. Sad, I know. I just like to remember it when I watch…like when he talked about the time capsule town house that was finally featured on last week's episode. Apparently, I'm not the only one that Ryan gives interviews to (I'm shocked–I thought we had something special), and he's opening up about his personal philosophy–and rumors of a MDL crossover!–in a new one.
