Madison gets amped up about all the drama this season.

on Jun 6, 20120

Oh dear goodness. . .my blood was rushing in the opening scene. That didn't take long to mix luxury real estate with the theatrics of our personalities (and those of our eccentric clients) to stir up a suspenseful first episode. I want more, I think. . .

I do enjoy watching my other two colleagues negotiate because I learn a few things (both what to do and what not to do). We certainly all three have different styles -- none being better than the other necessarily -- but some of the things that come out of our mouths are hilarious.

I am so glad the show is back on the air. I really like all three guys even tho their style is different. When I see those fabulous listings I just start dreaming and wishing I could get one of them so for that hour I am in heaven. I can't wait until the next show and if I find one I've already seen, I'll simply re-watch it. Bravo, please keep this show on the air for many, many episodes. Thanks so much!

Madison,

You seem to be a genuine person who values his relationships and for whom the word "loyalty" is not just a chance to pick up 50 extra points in Scrabble. Sadly, most people are not this way. Your Heather appears to be the type of girl who parlays her relationships into opportunities. Josh A. is just her latest. You are better off with her gone, although the pain of her betrayal will linger for a while. (I can't believe she threw water at you at a party! Who is does she think she is? Tamara Barney? :)

Josh A. comes off pretty cheesy with his old school one-liners "Let's close this deal so we can get on to the next one." America rolls its eyes in unison as he tries too hard to prove himself. You are the real thing, and that threatens him. Perhaps if his freakishly large head didn't threaten to eclipse the sun he wouldn't feel the need to overcompensate around you.

Pity him. You're a superstar. Be well.

Hope they work it out!

I love this show!! They had a marathon and I couldn't stop watching! Wish it was on everyday!!This is by far the only good worthwhile reality show on television! I'm glad to see each one of the guys figuring things out in their lives. Over all I think they are all happy and really fortunate to be who they are living the lives they live.

Madison, you're interesting to view with clients because you actually stop talking to listen to them. Wishes for much continued success to you.

I'm a new viewer and can't stop watching! Madison, you are my fave. Can't stand Josh A. He and Heather deserve each other. You are such a sweetie and hope that either Heather comes to her senses and returns to you, if you're willing, or you find another assistant who is more dedicated. I think you're such a cutie too. Love your easy-going personality and true concern for people's feelings. I would buy from you any time, or use your services to sell. Keep up the good work. And bravo to you for coming out on the show with 'NO H8' photos. You will outlast Josh A. Josh F. is okay, but not as true blue as you. I cannot get over how much I'm into this show! Loved the one where you sat in the huge chair, thinking you were like 5 yrs old. It was kind of funny. Don't worry about losing that deal. Of all 3 of you, if I were seeking a realtor, I would select you based on your personality. Josh A. is so into himself. Josh F. is into himself, but not as nasty. Please stay on top!

Madison--just cut Heather loose and find yourself another assistant. She's getting advice from Josh A.--she has to figure out on her own whether he's giving her good advice or just using her.

Heather has the right to 1) move forward with her career and 2) find love! A true friend would support her even if it is a temporary inconvenience.

really???

i believe your the only realtor on the show that has morals & integrity. Your inventory speaks for itself.

I don't see why people think Heather didn't betray you. Anyone that's ever been in the real estate business, or even a similar one, can see how she obviously would have 'borrowed' some things from your business to start her own. There is ambition, then there's just plain sneaky. Meh, leave the vipers to their pit and enjoy your positive approach to life.

I could no way, EVER function happily within yr business given its Faustian requirements, but I sometimes watch the non stop ruthlessness, politics and people making nice with other humans based on their assets or connections with fascination and horror. Given those requirements, Heather's musical chair loyalties should maybe have not shocked and wounded you so much, yes?

Can't manifest apolitical/not commerce driven empathy and personal integrity and succeed in yr particular business too. Which currency is more important to you, those above, or the dead Presidents?

And, while you yourself said in voice over afterthought, how diplomatic you must be in telling a client their property needs work.....you went ahead and used the "N" word (neglected) with a cold, inelegant, intractable, prospective client. Instead, that is, of say, saying, “This is a buyer's market, and shrewd buyers will use anything available to lower a purchase price.....so, the smart move might be to preclude that by.....”

Madison, you are very handsome! However, I disagree with your handling the Heather and Josh A. situation. Heather wanted to move up in your company. But, you saw it as a betrayal because she is attracted to Josh A. I think that maybe you are jealous of Josh A. You probably are attracted to Heather. But she knows that you prefer men so why would she be attracted to you. You should support her decision since she helped you so well.

Agreed...the New York crew of "Millionaire Listings" doesn't cut it for me.....I can't get excited about total cement, streets, little greenery and few trees unless you're living near Central Park....and few could afford that over pumped real estate market.....give me LA any day of the week...thank god for green grass, trees, great homes, and cool realtor's!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what sort of 'most jobs' LilyinPa refers to when she says one would leave the company after 2 years if no promotion was offered. In America these days, a job that pays a living wage would is a blessing. One that had a safe working environment, health insurance and paid vacation: sheer Heaven. I do know, from personal experience, that if it gets around the workplace that an employee is interviewing elsewhere, the boss is quite likely to confront that person about it, and just as likely to start interviewing a replacement. It's business, Madison. Once you get past the personal feelings, you can move forward...can the chick, she won't be very productive , and you can't trust her;

I love you Madison and so sorry Heather turned out to stab you in the back. Best wishes to you and get a new ASSISTANT that you can TRUST!

Glad to see you all back. MDL franchise is one of Bravo's better shows. Without seeing the whole incident (just the teasers), I think Heather may have a future as a Real Housewife somewhere. The boys of MDL keep is classy for the most part.

Honestly....

Glad to see you and Josh F once again!!! Seriously I don't understand why Josh A has returned. I too fast forward when he is on. Actually these days I fast forward on many bravo shows. They need to re-think the casts on their shows. It may appear as though the shows are being watched which help in the ratings but when viewers have to fast forward throughout the show something is very wrong here. Eventually we have to cancel out the shows altogether. Housewives of all cities.....perfect example, can add the not so fabulous as he thinks he is Josh A. to that mix. Boring!!

Interested to see if Bravo posts this.

I really enjoy watching this show. Josh A. has a huge ego. So unattractive. You are a good soul.

Welcome back hottie! Your my favorite! I love your style & that you sell in Malibu-that fits you! Excited for new season --last year you were never about drama.... Looks like this year Heather and bad Josh burn you! So not fair... So sorry! Hoping for a successful season to ya....I'll be watching!

I don't understand how you interpret Heather's trying to branch out on her own as betrayal. In most jobs if you've been doing the same tasks for over a year and you don't get a promotion, you usually leave the company. I would think after watching last season you would understand more that she truly wanted to move up in her career which is completely understandable after being your assistant for 2 years. It seems like your taking everything completely personal.

Madison, Please stay true to yourself, don't change a thing! Josh and Heather deserve each other, and you're so far above both of them, don't let their bad attitudes and ethics get to you. I'd buy a house from you anytime! Keep smiling!

Madison, You and Josh F won't have to worry about Josh A much longer. It's going to be difficult for him to work at full speed when he accidently breakes his arm patting himself on the back!!! PLEASE......You guys are fun for a fellow realtor to watch. I too learn from watching. Looking forward to another crazy season.

Looking forward to another great season of you and Josh F. I fast fwd through Josh A.scenes. He's not a nice person

You're great - Josh A is an arrogant jerk! I honestly do not see what Heather sees in him, other than the $$$$$$. I used to think she was sweet and you two were perfect together but you are much better without her. Sometimes it takes a "peacock" to pull out the true colors in others....................

I concur.. I can't watch the NY version because of Frederick. He is the biggest nut case I have ever met and I actually haven't met him yet LOL!
