Fredrik Eklund stopped by The Daily Dish podcast to talk about his new reality show with Bethenny Frankel, Keeping It Real Estate. The series will take fans inside their partnership as they work together to scout, buy, and design multi-million dollar properties.

Fredrik says he likes the current name of the show, because it describes what fans will be seeing.

"The real estate is there. It's like a backdrop, and we are investing millions of dollars of our own money into these properties, but it very real in the sense that it's her life, it's my life, it's a lot of that. And then our friendship, because I love her, and she loves me, but we fight. She's so freaking annoying. She's a freak. I mean, but she's a genius. She's all those things."

But "Keeping It Real Estate" wasn't the first show name they floated around. 


"I wanted what Bethenny had come up with early on, which was 'Flip a Bitch,'" said Fredrik. "[The name] was so freaking good. I said we can use 'Bitch' with a dollar sign. Because she's a bitch, I'm a bitch, we're gonna flip the bitch out of these properties. Anyway, it couldn't be used."
No matter the name, judging by the preview above and this sneak peek into their friendship, we'd say these two will keep fans plenty entertained.
