Million Dollar Recaps

Wherein agents ignore their phones, fail to close, and get stalked by seagulls.

Meanwhile, the pressure of trying to sell Monet’s overpriced orange Civic Center is getting to Josh Flagg. When he’s giving a private tour to a rich fiancée and she notices some “Versace” plates, he immediately corrects her: “Nope, Fauxsace.” Man, why not just carry around a big hammer and whenever someone compliments something, say, “Oh, you like this? Well how do you like it now (SMASH)?”  

(Revisit this week's properties and rate them all.)

But Josh knows he’s not going to get the price Monet is asking.  And Monet refuses to reduce it, so Josh is lashing out a little bit. Is Monet acting foolishly? I think he is. But cut him a little slack: He’s now 171 years old, if I’m not mistaken and he’s made some wonderful contributions to painting.  But maybe Josh F. doesn’t like impressionism.  Eventually, his co-listing agent Todd finds someone foolish enough to buy the Universal Studios Theme Park-style monstrosity. The deal is for two million less than the asking price, but it allows Monet to stay on as a co-owner of the property, so he can still make money from a sale in the future. This is the kind of atypical deal Josh Flagg usually shines in, but in the “Bloodbath of Rodeo Drive,” Monet nixes it, and it seems that Josh and Todd are going to walk away.

And Madison? Well, it’s hard out there for a Madi-pimp. As always, he’s stuck with the scariest client: This time, it’s Ismir, a businessman/Bond villain who like all good Bond villains has a habit of trying to destroy our hero at all times. Ismir also has an odd conception of markets: When he sees a car he likes at the bachelor pad he’s touring, the only way he can imagine getting it is having it written into the deal for the house.  Man, Madison had better remember to write food into the deal—if he doesn’t, Ismir might starve.  

Madison would be less stressed if he had something to take his mind off his insane clients. Basically, if he doesn’t hook up with somebody soon, I’m worried he’ll do something rash. It’s clearly on his mind, because he’s suddenly speaking almost exclusively in innuendo. He even enlists the help of a local hippie-lady to come by his totally empty house and dangle a prism around while two evil seagulls peck on his windows. Apparently, this is going to help him find someone to love. Whatever works, right?

I've seen a few episodes now, and I'm sorry but this has got to be one of the worst shows on Bravo. It's not even a show I'll watch when nothing else is on. I don't mind watching the fluff shows (RH and Tabatha) but this show is really just plain awful. Bravo...please wise up and put something else on during this time slot.
