Million Dollar Listing: New York star Luis D. Ortiz has been on the show for a couple of years, but Fredrik Eklund and Ryan Serhant have been filming the show since the very beginning. Since Ortiz joined the show, Fredrik and Ryan have been feuding, but they have also gotten along.
What’s the deal with these two agents getting along and then feuding? Well, Luis D. Ortiz believes that they do get along and they do care for one another — they just don’t want to admit it. Could Luis be right about his co-stars?
According to a new Bravo report, Million Dollar Listing: New York star Luis D. Ortiz is now revealing that he strongly believes that Fredrik and Ryan do love each other, which is hard to believe considering everything they have been through over the past couple of years.
“They love each other, they just don’t show it,” Luis told the Daily Dish about his theory, adding, “I have this feeling Ryan is obsessed with Fredrik. Fredrik is obsessed with Ryan. I am obsessed with both. I just made that up, but it’s funny.”
Fredrik hasn’t said anything about his friendship with Ryan, but Luis D. Ortiz may know how he feels. The two have worked on several deals together over the past couple of years, but Luis was tired of Eklund treating him like he wasn’t his equal. The two haven’t really spoken, but they did meet up on this season of Million Dollar Listing: New York when they learned that Ryan may be buying his Instagram followers. Serhant himself has talked about his relationships with his co-stars.
“It’s hard. Especially then when we watch the show and see what everyone said during interviews. It’s always weird. I think I try my best to really separate what’s the drama that is caught in those few minutes compared to the overall life that I have with these guys,” Ryan Serhant has revealed about his troublesome friendship with Fredrik, according to Bravo. “But it is hard. It’s a super competitive business. I think that’s why people enjoy watching the three of us because everything you’re watching is very real. As embarrassing as some of it may be, this is my life.”
And it sounds like Luis D. Ortiz and Ryan are getting along these days, as Ortiz is currently in Greece for Serhant’s wedding to Emilia Bechrakis. The two will get married in a few days, but they have been vacationing in Greece for a few days. Luis was invited to the wedding, so he accepted the invitation. But Fredrik has been spending time in Italy and he has no plans of heading to Greece for the wedding. He opened up about this a few weeks ago.
“I am not invited… I made it very clear from the very beginning, this was like a year ago when this started to be discussed, that I didn’t want to go because I think certain things are holy, like obviously a wedding,” Fredrik Eklund recently told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, according to Bravo. “And I don’t want to disturb that beautiful energy between the two of them with my presence ’cause it can get a little bit — you know, him and me [have a history], so it’s better… It’s a beautiful thing.”
To my best friend who makes me laugh every day, who wakes up excited to see me every morning and every night and who squeezes me each time like it's our last hug. Even on your worst day I love you more than ever. Happy birthday you sexy goofball!May every day bring you closer to your wildest dreams.
Of course, Fredrik and his husband have been trying to get pregnant through a surrogate, but they have miscarried twice. It has been emotional for Fredrik, even though both Ryan and Luis D. Ortiz are hoping for the best for him. One can imagine that Eklund will try once more on an upcoming season, but one can imagine that it is painful for him to share this journey on national television for all to see.
What do you think of Luis D. Ortiz’s theory about his Million Dollar Listing: New York co-stars? Do you think Eklund and Serhant will ever work out their issues?
