‘Million Dollar Listing LA’: Josh Altman Says Fredrik Eklund’s Reaction to His Wife Was ‘Straight up Shady’
Million Dollar Listing viewers finally get to see Josh Altman’s reaction to the confrontation between his wife and Fredrik Eklund from Million Dollar Listing New York. He now plans to confront Eklund, calling him “straight up shady.”
Eklund pondered a move from New York to Los Angeles during the last season of Million Dollar Listing New York. Once he made a decision, he hosted a brokers open which was where he and Heather Altman had an altercation.
Viewers only saw the fight. But now they will see what happened when Heather Altman returned home to tell her husband about the confrontation.
Josh Altman thinks Fredrik Eklund was being shady
Heather Altman is clearly stressed about the exchange. She tells her husband she was so upset that she couldn’t sleep. “Fredrik,” she says in a preview clip. “Well, I didn’t wanna tell you last night because I didn’t want to upset you. But you know I went and as soon as I walked in, he saw me and just came for me.”
Previews flashed back to the exchange. Heather Altman actually asks Eklund about what he was doing in Los Angeles. He nervously says he left the couple messages. She’s clearly upset that Eklund wasn’t transparent about the move, especially since they are friends. Eklund seems flummoxed as he recalls the Altmans being nearby when he discussed doing business in the area. At this point, they call each other “bizarre.”
Josh Altman is hearing the story for the first time as his wife shares it from her side. “I lost all respect for him in that moment,” she says. “I was completely shocked and caught off guard.” Josh Altman is shaking his head as she talks, looking concerned.
“Straight up shady,” he says. “The fact that he approached you like that and didn’t come to me. I’m gonna put him in his place.”
The Altmans aren’t the only brokers who confront Eklund
Although the other brokers seemed relaxed about Eklund’s transition to Los Angeles, David Parnes recently shared he too got into a heated exchange with him.
“I mean, look, Fredrik is officially in L.A. and he means business,” Parnes said, Bravo’s The Daily Dish reports. “James and I do have a rather heated exchange with him. I don’t want to give too much away, but there is definitely confrontation between the Brits and Fredrik this coming season.”
“The way I look at it this coming season is all about adapting,” Parnes said. “The market was already shifting and changing throughout last year, so there is a lot of adapting and just realizing that it doesn’t always work out.”
“The way I look at it this coming season is all about adapting,” he continued. “The market was already shifting and changing throughout last year, so there is a lot of adapting and just realizing that it doesn’t always work out.”
“I think this season is so raw and real it just shows the real difficulties and the real situations of how things just don’t always work out and how we cope with that,” he added. “I think that’s really, really, really important.”
Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles is on Tuesday at 9/8c on Bravo.
