Madison Hildebrand

Madison mourns the loss of his longtime companion Rex.

on Aug 8, 20120

Oh my little "Sexy Rexy" after 14 years as my companion passed. This was an emotional episode for me -- certainly not easy to watch, but I do feel grateful that I will forever have amazing footage of him on TV.

Another returning face, Camilo, is back to buy more real estate this season as well. He is my Colombian client who enjoys giving me a hard time, but in reality is a very nice guy.

Josh Flagg is genius in this episode. . .love the luxury cars and the beautiful home in Rancho Sante Fe.

Tune in to "On The Red Carpet" on ABC this weekend to catch me in an interview and featuring my new $5.35 million Malibu Beach house. Also, continue to tune in to E! News as I take you through celebrity homes for sale. . .exclusive tours of Howie Mandell and Rebecca Romijin's current homes and Diana Ross' former rental home!

Next week is the finale! Can't believe it has already gone by so quickly.

Just recently started watching the show and have been watching reruns and catching up.

 

I actually seen Madison on the Million dollar matchmaker so I had a little bias for him from that.  But what I have seen from him on this show, that bias is GONE!

 

He has over reacted and accused Heather and Josh of things that are just not true and that stems from absolute JEALOUSY.  He does not want her to move on.  I toally uderstand he cares for her but what he has been doing does not show he cares, it shows he wants to CONTROL her.

Then when he told his mother about what happend at the open house with Heather he totally LIED about everything he said and did.

 

Madison needs to get over the fact that Heather wants to be with Josh and stop making everythign she does about HIM.  I could find NO "betrayal or lyng" from any of the shows on Josh or Heather againt Madison.  It was all in HIS mind.

Sad to lose a family pet I have gone thru that - but pets aside - your treatment of Heather was not professional - if she was to get commissions and you are holding them back on a technicality - remember what goes around comes around - if you aren't honest with what you should pay someone - ultimately that comes back to you.....people don't prosper from taking from others....Your comments about her lying on the show were saying something else - her intent was honorable - to list separately from Josh with 2 condos - not jointly list with her boyfriend - so for you to accuse her before hearing the entire story I felt only made you look bad not her.....Even though Josh doesn't care for you either he was more able to put his personal issues aside to co-list with his girlfriend knowing you'd profit from the sale as well....He showed more character.  You lacked character.  So I am more inclined to see the flaw here is with you.

Our pets are part of our family, and I'm sorry for your loss. Just want to say that I think the way you handled yourself when Heather so rudely, threw that champagne in your face was very classy. That's what Josh hates about you, that you're an eagle, and like an eagle you fly higher than common birds (like Josh and Heather) fly.

ok lana,we must be watching 2 ddifferent shows. yes,he called him those names but not to heather and he cared about heather enough to try and protect her! I believe he helped heather with her career when he agreed to let her run a office on her side of town and continued to pay her,even though she didnt bring in any clients. WOW! that would be great to get paid and do NOTHING! as far as Josh altman goes,he just wants to make sure heather isnt mooching off of him.he's arogant and a loser! love you madison! its nice to see someone with integrity in this business

Madison, I am so sorry for your loss of your beautiful friend Rex.

I also lost my little boy in May and the heartbreak, no one understands unless they are a pet lover also.

I enjoy you on the show, you really care about your clients and not out to grab everything that you can.

I don't blame you for wanting Josh Altman out of our life, he is not someone I would want selling/buying a house from.

Love you Madison and I'm so sorry that you lost your best friend "Sexy Rexy". I know how badly it hurts. You're such a sweet guy and I think that Heather made a terrible mistake, both professionally and personally, when she chose to be with Josh.

Madison,

I know that Rex held on to life as long as he could, so as not to let you down.  Open your heart to another "best Friend" soon so you can honor Rex.  He knows you are devasted by your loss so let he see from the "beach in the sky" that you have a new companion to share your love.

RIP Rex, and look for Coco.  She was mine and would love to have your friendship.

Madison- So sorry for your loss. Rex was a very lucky dog & he knows he was loved.  Cross that Rainbow Bridge & run free.

 

Please take your time to heal, but know there are other dogs at your local shelters that would love to have a wonderful life with you.

I am so sorry to hear about your special Friend Madison . A dog is TRULY mans best friend. As for Heather and Josh I find them both Unprofessional, Immature and ClassLess.  They are like Vultures waiting for the kill!!  You are the better person and show your maturity & class and I wish you all the happiness and success!

I just watched the episode last night and I was heartbroken to learn of Rex's passing. It brought me to tears and I was just so sad for you. I have a Pomeranian and I just don't know how I'll handle it when he crosses the Rainbow bridge.  Rex truly was your family. I think you're a wonderful guy and I wish only the best for you. I can't wait for next season. May Rex RIP.

So sorry about Rex...very sad.  Can't believe the season is almost over, you and Josh Flagg are the best!

Madison, unlike Chad and Josh A. you are doing a great job of keeping it classy instead of trashy. You're mom should be proud of you. I know Heather really regrets keeping it trashy instead of classy no thanks to Josh A., she has to know what a big mistake she made. She DID betray you when she could have dealt with everything more maturely and professionally. Just stay classy and you always come out looking attractive.

It is with my deepest sorrow that your Rex has passed on. We seem to get these dogs that show up at our backyards with no home and we take them in. Duke we lost last December and we're thinking he was about 15 years old. My heart ached for so long. It's not the same to walk in from work and no one to greet you. I think out of revenge 4 months later Duke sent us Kaycee another mix that barks at everything and when we have friends over she jumps up and nips their butts. I know you're pain and it took me a long time to accept Kaycee but since she has some birth defects I couldn't stand to have her put to sleep. Now 2 years later she puts a smile on my face and a song in my heart. She cuddles in bed with me sometimes head up and sometimes butt up on the pillow LOL. I know it will take time but I hope you make room in your heart for another mutt that needs a home and will love you unconditionally. When I come home from work and Kaycee brings me a present (one of her toys) it makes me smile and brings me such joy. I will include you in our prayers and remember you'll see Rex again running towards you with his tail wagging and his favorite present in his mouth for you!

I have to say the tears welled up in my eyes being a dog owner and lover.  Cannot believe this season is over. I think you are ready to venture in to more television sans selling real estate and that is great. You are a natural.

Hi Madison -- I'm so sorry about your loss. Our dog is really like one of our kids and has seen us through a lot of hard times. He is 15 now which is very old for a Lab, and since I know his days are numbered, I cherish him even more. It is obvious that you cherished Rex and he felt the same about you. Find comfort in knowing that he is always with you in spirit.

So sorry about your dog, Madison.  You are a great guy and I enjoyed seeing your family.

You did the right thing with Heather and you are better off without her.  She and Josh make quite a pair.

Madison, just wanted to tell you how sorry I was to hear of Rex's passing. He was the most adorable dog on the show and I can see why you loved him so much. I have a beloved golden retriever who is turning 9 and he is the center of our family, so I understand how close that bond is. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so nice to see your wonderful relationship with your mom - I'm glad you have a great family to get you through a rough time. Take care.

The only animal in the world that loves you more than they love themselves is a dog.

 

So sorry Madison! But glad that Rex had such a great person in you to spend his life with.

 

There are so many out there that are in need of a loving home. Any rescue would be lucky to have you!

It was heartbreaking to see you mourn the loss of your beloved Rex. We just lost our yellow lab (she was 14 1/2) .  They truly are members of the family. She was my first "baby" before my human babies, and I miss her everyday.  Your mom was right, he had a WONDERFUL life! Sorry for your loss.

I agree 100 percent with Cherrie.  Madison wanted Heather to be happy as his assistant, nothing more..  He didn't want her to grow because he didn't want to find another assistant.  If she thought she could have talked with him about becoming an agent she would have, so instead when she met Altman and knew Madison didn't like him, she knew she could ask those questions and get an answer without it getting back to Madision.  (Please don't tell me everybody out here who wanted to move ahead within a company wouldn't do the same). She asked Altman and of course somebody had to be in her ear. That is an insult to her intelligence,  because what it is saying is of course Heather couldn't be smart enough to think of this on her own.  I did like Madison alot up to this point, he couldn't  get his personal feelings out of the way that he had for Altman to do business. I think Heather would have enough intergrity not to give Altman any information about her boss and his clients, pillow talk or no pillow talk.  Since everyone is talking about Madison intergrity. She worked for him for three years, where was his loyalty to her as an employee. As long as he was controlling her and giving her a few crumbs, what he thought she deserved, then everthing was fine. Altman was ready to put his dislike of Madison aside, don't forget that.  She should sue him for wrongful termination with all that intergrity Madison profess, compassion, and community service.
