I missed the premiere of MDLLA because I just wasn’t paying attention. I have a new cable company and have to program my shows into the DVR to record and even then they sometimes don’t. So I am going to check in now with episode 2 and see what I think about the two new guys, James Harris and David Parnes joining the cast with Josh Flagg and Josh Altman. I have a feeling I might miss Madison a little bit.
We start with Altman. The two new guys are British and partners. Apparently, last week everyone went after the same listing and Altman got it. The Brits are mad. Are they all out of real estate to sell over in jolly old England? I dislike these two and they haven’t said two words yet. They have come to the brokers open house to cause trouble it seems. Flagg is enjoying the pissing match between David and James and Altman. Altman is pleased with his open house.
The ever popular question, “Gay or European?” is seemingly answered by James’ wife and two daughters but then his enthusiasm for tea parties seems to belie the initial response. After seeing the clubbing montage, where he knocked his wife up while they were dating, I suppose he is just European. David just walked in and the two both don tiaras and chat over pretend tea about a major business deal.
Flagg has a gorgeous $9.395 million dollar listing in Bel Air Crest. My first impression is that Latoya Jackson needs to see this house. It has everything she wants including the double staircase at the entry. It seems perfect in every way. Oh fuck, did he just say the Kardashians live down the street? I knew there had to be something wrong with this place.
David and James are trying to get a big listing in Holmby Hills, and exclusive area near Beverly Hills. I hate the house. It’s a house for a rich gay (or European) male. It’s furnished with very modern furniture. If someone gave me this house, I would sell it and by Flagg’s listing with the money. Do all British guys have ears like Prince Charles? Because these two do. They get the listing for $48 million. They mention that one of Ellen DeGeneres’s houses sold for $55 million. Their first thought is to rub this listing in Altman’s face. Speaking of Altman, he has a porn star client on his property.
Oh God. Josh Flagg is at dinner with his grandmother. She recently passed away. It always creeps me out to see people on reality shows who have died since filming. She seems so vibrant. She was adorable with her lipstick dilemmas and advice. Wow, she was born in 1919. Imagine all the things she experienced in her life!
At the meeting with the Brits and their team to discuss marketing the $48 million dollar listing, one of the women suggests bringing in some high-end art for the walls. YES! That would help so much. The whole place is sharp angles and empty countertops right now. David and James have a major disagreement about partnering with Equinox Fitness for marketing by allowing them to shoot a video there. I agree with James. Bad idea. Waste of time. But since this is a promotional exchange for Bravo, I’m sure the edit will be that it worked splendidly.
Altman’s porn buyer fell through. The Brits have already told Altman the house is overpriced. Altman is looking for an overseas buyer. He gets an offer from Korea for $7 million. The finally agree to $7.45 million.
The video on North Faring is underway. I have no idea how this will help sell a house. Plus the video is filming over four days. Four days they can’t show the house. I love watching David and James bicker. I can believe this show is ending without showing what happens to the property!
Next Week: Josh Flagg is in a wheelchair wondering if he will ever walk again, Josh Altman is out to dinner with Kyle and Mauricio calling the Brits the laughing-stock of town. I have a feeling they lost their listing and should have listened to James. And Altman’s fiancée is upset over wedding planning.
I am so IN for #MDLLA !
