Welcome back to my final blog post of Million Dollar Listing New York Season 2! Time really does fly when you're having fun, and I must say that I owe it all to my fans -- to all of YOU! You've all become a part of me and this whole experience has allowed me to reflect on life in a way that not many get to experience. You've witnessed my successes and highs, but you have also seen me battle my frustrations and fears. So thank you for being a part of this journey and allowing me to grow from my experiences. (I may not be the first to admit it, but I too still have some learning to do.)
So let's get right down to it. . .
The one thing I would change about tonight’s episode is the speech I gave at the open house, which was cut down drastically. Here is the speech I gave, in full:
"Given the apartment we're in, the emphasis on videos, etc., I'd like to show you a scene from a very special movie. Some of you have probably seen this -- most of you haven't.
The scene, which is from a popular cult classic that transcends generations, is very timely, today, in this room of brokers.
The best way I can describe it--– is that it’s about a bunch of guys living in a hole. A hole that breeds envy and betrayal, and yet the men involved, whose tight bonds and hard tools keep them together, provide for each other and satisfy their needs -– just like us in this room.
Ready for season 3. That apartment you showed was horrendous. Maybe it was owned by Carlton (RHOBH) LOL!!!
You looked like an ass not in front of Fredrik, but your colleagues. They knew what this was all about. Very immature, and that could have hurt your credibility which is a big part of your profession. There are better ways to get some
NY sells itself. It is another stock market option!
We love you here in Australia Ryan, keep up the great work and continue to take Frederik to task, if ever in OZ can put you up in our beautiful pad in Cairns!.
I believe you all should get a HUGE raise from Bravo! Best season so far! Dont listen to the peeps saying you should apologize to Fredrik, oh H-E-Double hockey sticks NO!! You handled it with dignity and Class! NO Fear! Love it!
I'm not tired of Frederick, Ryan just made me love him the more.
In fact, i want me some more Frederick!!!
Ryan, I really love the show. All of you bring something different to the table. Honestly, you are my favorite because I have never seen you do anything sleazy. Fredrik and Luis on the other hand....faked photos and price gauging.....yikes. Keep your head up. I truly enjoy your snide sense of humor!!!!!
Ryan, I like you a lot. I thought you were a good sport with your frat brother, and with the foolishness Freddie put you through.
I'm not happy with the scene or the speech in the finale... you owe Fredrik an apology. You are better than this. I understand your anger, I really do. But revenge like that isn't the way.
Speaking of.... is what Fredrick did illegal? It seems like it SHOULD be... and that there should be some governing board to file a complaint with. Please follow that path.
Ryan, Love you.you are the reason why i watch this show. Dont apologize to Frederick, he act like he is on top of the world. the way he treated luis and you on the shwo is sickening to watch.
two wrongs don't make you right. you owe fredrick and his husband an apology. remember karma... never go out of your way to hurt someone even if they have hurt you. you ended up looking like an ass.
Ryan U R no worse then Fredick when it come's 2 being mean !He thinks he is just God's gift 2 this world.He was very nasty & laughed about it ,threw up his legs,then when u started fighting back he turns it @ & acts like "I'm being picked on "tears tears"He got just what he deserved !Now Luis really is a good guy .Please b nice 2 him !When u all were on Andy's show & u said "oh i know what ur doing " To Fredick i knew excatly what u meant.we aren't blind !gona miss ya !Have a good summer & take a vacation !Go home 4 awhile or ur life will b over & u will b alone(well not u ) but u need 2 smell the flowers!
Ryan, Shut it already. Just do your thing and not let Fredrik ruin you as a person like you say "WITHOUT INTEGRITY". You're doing so well, vengeance and playing dirty can only set you back. KARMA is REAL as fast as success catapulted you to the top of your career ,it can also burst like a balloon and drop you flat on the ground. !! No one is exempt. Everyone is vulnerable !!
Congratulations on completing your second season of Million Dollar Listing New York. This show is awesome, and part of its awesomeness is because of you. The oil and vinegar interaction that you have with your fellow cast mate, Frederik, is what makes this show entertaining. This is what keeps me coming back for more every week. In regards to what you did to Frederik, I don’t think that we as viewers should sit on our high horses and judge you. What the audience fail to remember is that it’s easy to sit back and judge others when we are not directly affected.
Either way, I hope you enjoy your time off and I look forward to seeing you on the show again next season.
Ryan. You must really know that you have a very mean streak in you. Your personality is one of being a constant ahole. Yet your potential is wide open. You, are the only one in your way. As soon as you become a nice guy, start to like yourself & quit using people, you'll be happy with the results. You've got the package, you're just confused with who you are. Good luck..
Cheers!! I wish you well. I hope there is another season. Congratulations on the new relationship!! Bless!!
I'm so glad you gave Fredrik a taste of his own medicine....he deserved it and much, much more....you should have had him face your client....that would have been the ultimate.....I love you and hope you come back with a new group of brokers....Luis was annoying and Fredrick just shows the sleezy side of NY real estate.....
Ryan - I don't think you went too far. Fredrik needed to be taken down a peg or two! He delights in bullying, belittling & embarrassing people so he deserved what you did!!! I have never seen a grown man act like him in public - with the high kicks & silly noises he makes - & hope i never do in real life. Maybe he will think twice in the future before being such a nasty creep. It amazes me that he runs around in NYC acting like that & no one has taken him down before this!!
Ryan, I love you. No need to apologize to Fredick. you did nothing wrong, he treated you and luis like second class citizen the entire show. You are correct, he is unethical, who does something so low in business, hide the fact that they are more apartments available so he can purposely sell you the most expensive one. LOTS OF LOVE
Fredrik got EXACTLY what he deserved and probably not enough of it. Remember, he hoodwinked not only your client, but other brokers' clients as well. You are correct...he has no ethics and one day he will have to face the barren life he is making for himself. Frankly, I don't know what Derek sees in him. Derek seems so full of integrity. Hopefully, he will have an influence on Fredrik and help him to grow up. As for you...you still slay me. Your sense of humor and professionalism in your job clearly set you apart from those "shiny" people as you so accurately labeled them. Have a successful year ahead and bring your brother back on the show...hello! Thanks.
Bravo needs to have a show with the loudest, most interruptive cast members of all shows. NiNi, Tamra, Fredrik. I have only three but I'm sure there are more. Uggg, gross.
I adore you. You're my favorite on the show, you're funny and smart and have great social skills. Luis is a bit unsophisticated for my taste, and Fredrik makes me want to take a shower, and not in a good way. But Ryan, don't forget to make time for love in your life. A good marriage brings a lot of happiness and security. Don't get too busy for that, or you may find yourself older, with lots of cash, but not many riches.
Ryan, I like your sense of humor. However, I think you seem to forget that you too, are a "cheap" import. Where did your family come from? Unless you are Native American, you are an import. You should have listened to your brother and taken the high road. You just showed how much of an "ugly American" you really are. BAD FORM -- I understand your not liking Fred but calling people names, insulting them is simply BAD FORM.
Ryan....just watch WWHL. I think you were put in a poor light....Fredrik has been a complete jerk to you and other brokers since the show started. You messed with his mind and all his poor behavior is erased? I don't think so...keep doing what you are doing.
Bravo....how about you actually post one of my comments??
It was pretty cheap tactics of you. I disagree with what you did. I think your little brother has more common sense and maybe in the future you should really listen to him.
I disagree with your comment on the after show that it is a "cultural" thing. Being an ethical personal transcends all cultural barriers.
I really enjoyed you this season!! Do I think you went a little far with Fredrick?! Hell ya!! But he did kinda have it coming! Just be careful of your words Ryan!! words have a way of coming back to haunt us!! I wouldn't want to see you lose business deals over catty comments made on a reality show!!
Ryan, I don't know what Fredrick was talking about, what an actor! You were totally justified in what you did at the open house. He needed to be under the microscope for awhile not knowing what was about to happen. You made the right decision not to show his movie, which I'm sure is disgusting. It obviously humbled him, at the time anyway. By the "reunion" on WWHL he used the "I never call you a name" "When you said that about my mother...it made me cry" and if his husband hasn't already seen the movie, perhaps he should. He may not have actually called you a name, but monkey comes to mind when he made you do the high kick. He out and out lied to you about what was available in "his" building and you could have lost a long time client because of it. I know you're smart enough not to turn your back on him.
Ryan, you are classless and made Frederick come out on top this season! I hope Bravo cuts you from the show for what you did and I for one will not watch the next season if you are on the show!
Ryan, this whole show is a little crazy, but Fredrik whining on WWHL and acting like he did nothing wrong was over the top. So he can be an a$$, throw drinks on people, humiliate others, and he thinks no one os going to come back at him? Glad you didn't show his little movie, though..
Ryan you are truly my favorite you are so funny. I for one am glad you gave frederik a taste of his own medicine he is kind of a snake and he treats people horribly and then plays the innocent victim I come from a world that says if you cant take it dont dish it out. Keep making me smile and I for one will be looking forward to seeing you next season.
Ryan make no apology you need too.You know Frederick is not a fighter I wish I was there Be careful when you speak out of your mouth too people be ready for consequences.
you are a mean boy.. get over your self.. Fredrik is the better broker and will always do better than you
You and Frederick will probably never get along, but he certainly owes you thanks for teaching him enough humility to apologize to Luis! If it weren't for your lesson I seriously doubt that apology of his would never have actually happened! He owes that lesson to you and so does Luis!
There's a big difference between what you did to Fredrik as revenge and what you feel Fredrik did to you. Fredrik was playing with you because he liked you (he was smiling when he was approaching the room you were in when negotiating the 250 Bowery deal and when you were talking on the phone immediately prior), and you did what you did because you intensely disliked him. You really need to grow up; listen to your brother, who is far wiser and more mature than you. I think you need to let things go before you permanently damage the personal relationships you have by acting on your feelings without thinking of the consequences - when you wound someone like that, they will never forget. The only reason you didn't actually show the porn was because you are so calculating and it probably would have gotten you fired from your job, not because you are an "ethical" person like you said to him. You are not even a remotely ethical person to give that "presentation." The fact that you had the audacity to verbally humiliate Fredrik in front of all his peers shows a very nasty, vindictive, and childish side to you. I absolutely *hated* you referring to Fredrik with the f word and homophobic comments in your interviews and directly to him, it's so disrespectful. Earlier in the season, you commented about not feeling good about being completely alone in NYC after Hurricane Sandy forced you to abandon your apartment. If you treat people like this, you will always be alone. Remember your final appearance on WWHL last season where you and Fredrik made up and said some nice things about each other? Contrast that with your final appearance on WWHL this season where Fredrik was extremely upset - was what you really wanted was to see him cry? Did that give you a sense of satisfaction that you got your revenge and then some?
Ryan I love you. You give Fred a run for his money and it makes for very good tv. People here will criticize you because you seek vengeance but so? Make no apologies for who you are. I personally LOVED you this season along with your sarcasm and snide remarks lol. Stay true to who you are! Obviously it has gotten you very far in your career.
I love you Ryan. You have been brilliant throughout this whole season. I can not wait to watch what happened next when Frederik was told by Vella that you called his office. I have fastened my seat belt and am ready for season 3. Bring the drama on! This is my favourite show on Bravotv this year. :)
What you did to Frederick was horrible. You made it personal. I liked you last season. You and Frederick had a competition going but this season you took it to a whole new level. And to make you look even more hateful, you did not give a heartfelt apology to him on Watch What Happens Live. It is clear you cannot stand him and that is fine but be a man and act like a professional. The way you acted is certainly not attractive it makes you ugly.
Ryan, you just aren't a nice person. Watched you in the Clubhouse and still you came across as a petulant frat boy. "All American Dream" my a**. You're the All American Nightmare. All 3 of you participate in braggadocio but you don't seem to ever turn it off.
@JudiB Nicely played!! Ryan totally took things too far with the video, in fact, all Ryan accomplished was making Fredrick look better in comparison!
Agreed! Fredrik wants to go on the show with his husband and be a cry baby. While Ryan would have looked a bit better if he could just forget about it, but now Fredrik will think twice about trying to scam Ryan knowing that he will get a dose of his own medicine.
@email@example.com Yikes!! Calm down now! Fredrick is no angel not even close.
Are you for real? He was "smiling" not because he liked Ryan but because he was going to screw Ryan.
@TSan Well said!! Ryan is the REAL American dream!!
@MissMS The fact that Frederick and Luis ARE the American dream - they came here and seized opportunity and made themselves successful - seems to drive Ryan demented. His lassless anti-immigrant rants are disturbing.
@lolabel I can agree with you on Luis starting from nothing, but not Fredrick. His family had money, he was attending a prestigious college when he dropped out to make money. I wouldn't say he started from nothing, or he would be a little more humble like Luis if that was the case.
