Million Dollar Listing fans were shocked when Luis D. Ortizdecided to quit the show, left his real estate career behind and headed off on a mission to see the world. Luis has always radiated a positivity and happiness that was almost contagious. You couldn’t help smiling at his joy. If you’ve been following his Instagram account these past two years, you know he’s been adventuring around the world and sharing his wild ride with his followers. But this weekend the usually joyful Luis shared a serious moment of complete honesty about things not always being rainbows and sunshine in his life.
Luis took to Instagram to share a powerful statement of truth about his battle with depression and suicidal thoughts. He also shared an inspirational message of hope and help. He began, “I have been wanting to share this for some time now but have been very reluctant to do so for the very same reasons most of us choose to keep our truths in the dark. However, ever since Kate (Spade) and (Anthony) Bourdain committed suicide, I have been feeling the strong need and responsibility of sharing my truth with the hopes of a positive change.”
“For the past year I have been struggling with depression and during the last three months all I can think of – day and night – is putting an end to it all.”
Yesterday our favorite reality TV dads celebrated Father’s Day, which meant gushing social media shout-outs galore (and lots of shirtless dad pics).
Or in Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s case, her shout-out featured a a pic of her wearing a skimpy bikini – which I’m sure is connected to how she and Kroy Biermannended up with such a massive brood of kiddies!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared, “Happy Father’s Day to my Papa. love you more than anything in this world you are my life and I am who I am because of you #daddysgirl #papa #familyiseverything”
TGIF! The reality stars are having some fun on social media this week. NeNe Leakesand Kenya Moore had a good time together at NeNe’s popup boutique while Kyle Richards headed off on vacation with Mauricio and Luis D. Ortiz was his typical ray-of-sunshine self.
