Million Dollar Listing New York Recap: Fredrik Eklund Has Feelings?

April 25, 2012 08:31 PM by Lisa Princ

Last week on Bravo‘s Million Dollar Listing New York, we watched as Fredrik Eklund and Michael Lorber duked it out again, and tonight we found out that the shark actually does have feelings! We kid you not, Fredrik was even reduced to tears this week! Check out all the highlights below!

Million Dollar Listing New York was back tonight and while there was no drama between Fredrik and Michael, we definitely watched plenty of excitement! Michael, was the least exciting this week as he tackled a town home listing, but not before spending almost a grand on two new pairs of slipper/shoes, because, well, Michael does not like to wear socks. He even tried on the shoes without socks, which is not very sanitary if you ask me. Is this not the same man who donned bright red socks a few weeks ago? Ugh, can you say complete dork?

Michael also tried to work his self proclaimed comedian skills – does he really think he is funny? Michael hit up a comedy class, but when it was his turn he was left speechless. Then he went back to what he does best – real estate. Michael spent almost $30k out of his pocket this week to stage a home that he was listing, but we never did find out if it sold or not – guess we will have to wait for next week for that.

Ryan Serhant proved that he has his own issues this week as well. Instead of giving his assistant the raise she asked for, he gave her his credit card and told her to charge a pair of shoes, but nothing else. I am not sure I would want to work for him, would you? Ryan then got what he thought was a great listing – a $35 million dollar deal, which was a record for him. Ryan and the owner, however, disagreed when Ryan threw a party in the place after a fashion show in an attempt to get people in the place. The problem? That Ryan promised no more than 40 people, and there ended up being around 400 there!

The big story tonight though on Million Dollar Listing New York was Fredrik Eklund. For the past few weeks, Fredrik has given us all the assumption that he was a cold-hearted shark, but this week Fredrik proved that he has feelings too! Fredrik traveled to his real estate company in Sweden this week, where he worked on a sale, but also some personal issues. Fredrik met up with a man, who I assumed was his boyfriend at first, but in fact was his father. We learned that Fredrik’s father was not around much as a child, which probably attributed to why Fredrik is the way he is.

In the middle of the sale (which proved an easy feat for Fredrik tonight), Fredrik met up with his mother, who we learned often gets pushed aside by Fredrik, as he just has no time for anything. Fredrik became very emotional and broke down into tears as he apologized to his mother for not being there for her. Then Fredrik wiped his tears and gave his mother a thank you gift, in the form of a $100k check! Fredrik’s mother was emotional, but it seemed to me like the pair have a strained relationship, or maybe showing emotions are different in Sweden? In any event, it was sweet to see a different side of Fredrik.

This week, Fredrik was the only broker to make the sale, so we’ll have to tune in next week for the season finale of Million Dollar Listing New York to check in on Ryan and Michael! See you then!

    Does anyone know WHY, when Fredrik comes from such a good background and has always been successful with his ventures, why did he do gay porn?! Will the show ever delve into that?Maybe he wanted to defy his father? His mother was there for him…why did he do it? That goes so contrary to what we are seeing in him but no explanation on the show!! He is also much nicer in Sweden! We like him nevertheless.

    Um thats 100k Swedish Krona not US dollars, which works out to $16k. Still who gives their mother cash as a present?

    Personally, I think Michael is the “Good Guy” on the show! I would prefer to do business with someone like him vs the Large Ego’s and Brutal Behavior towards other…..
    New York whatever, business can be done without being a complete Egotistical Ass!!
    Right on Michael, Don’t Change!!!
