I don’t know why I always push this show to the back of the recap line. I think it might be because I really like it. I’m sort of the same way with my Parts Unknown episodes that I pile up on my DVR. I rarely think it is a good time to watch the new ones because I don’t have the time to focus on the episode because I am multitasking. Anyway, I am dying to see the situation between Josh Flagg and his husband and Josh Flagg and Josh Altman and I am also very interested in the dynamic between Tracy and her husband considering they are now divorcing.
Josh Flagg & The Brits
Josh and Bobby aren’t really speaking after the Mile High Club Party. It’s only been a couple days and Flagg is filing his time with work. It appears that Josh Flagg and the Brits are going to team up for a co-listing because the seller is a bit eccentric. The Brits apparently thing that Flagg could help them relate to the seller. Or not. The seller is Anna and she is batshit crazy. There is no way to accurately recap her crazy. She inherited a lot of money from somewhere and now wants to sell the house that is her safety net so she can travel the world and drink and smoke. Sounds very similar to my future plans.
Josh and Bobby eventually call a truce. But now the Brits are mad at him. They are doing all the work and he is a co-lister in name only. He’s not doing any work on the sale. Later, James and Flagg present an offer to Anna. I am not sure what the heck is happening with David this season. It seems like he is never filming. I’ve reached out to sources to inquire and they just said he was really busy selling real estate and had a big year with not much time to film. I mean, Fredrik Eklund has really big years and does his show and a spin off and just filmed with Tracy Maltas for this season.
Anyway, since we first met Anna she’s gone from having long dark hair to shaving her head into a blond mohawk. She also changed her phone number due to a crazy stalker who she says is now in prison. There is a lot of crazy going on here. While James is on the phone with the buyers agent, Anna offers to be Flaggs surrogate for his future babies. He politely declines citing her chain-smoking as the reason. Then, she said she would like to give him her eggs as a wedding gift. I don’t think she has the DNA he is looking for. They close the deal at $3.1 million.
Tracy is flying to NYC for three days to meet with Howard Lorber the Chairman of Douglas Elliman to try to get in on the ground floor of a new development in LA. She will be gone for three days and Jason is pitching a fit about it. Could you imagine a wife pitching a fit over a three day business trip her husband has to go on? She has organized all the girls activities in her absence.
Tracy’s first stop in NYC is to see Fredrik Eklund for a bit of advice before she approaches the big guy. Fredrik schools her on all the pressures involved with working with a developer over a reseller. They want their money back very quickly. Fredrik tells her that she can’t work with developers as one person, she needs a team. The meeting with Douglas Elliman goes well and she will be referred to a developer soon.
Altman is still trying to sell the ginormous property he recently listed by making it very difficult to get a showing. There seems to be some interest.
Later he brings Heather a gift. It’s a necklace with the baby’s name on it. I am not impressed. I hate name necklaces anyway. It’s right up there with getting your own name tattooed on your body. But won’t everyone think he name is Alexis when she wears it?
Josh gets an offer of $22 million dollars on the $30 million dollar listing. Hey, at least it is an offer. By the time he goes to meet with the seller, he has a second offer. The second offer is for $23.5 million. The seller rips up a $22 million dollar check for the first offer. The negotiate the second offer up to $25 million and sell the house.
I am officially caught up on last weeks recapping thirty minutes before the new week begins. Yay!
