Taylor Spellman might be spending a lot of time with Reza Farahan on Yours, Mine or Ours, but before working alongside the Shahs of Sunset real estate agent the interior designer was spending a lot of time with another familiar face: Million Dollar Listing New York agent, Ryan Serhant. But, she's quick to point out that there work has always been about business and not pleasure.
"I had seen her on Ryan's Instagram, so I was like who's this pretty blonde chick and I was wondering why they weren't like hooking up," Reza told The Daily Dish, noting that his fleeting thought about their status came before Ryan met his wife, Emilia Bechrakis. Taylor confirmed that nothing romantic ever transpired between the twosome over the course of their lengthy working relationship.
"The reason why Ryan and I do very well together is because it's strictly business. Once you start dipping that pen it just doesn't [work]," she said. That answer definitely disappointed Reza, who added, "She was keeping it strictly business and I was hoping she was keeping it strictly dickly but [shrugs]."
Taylor once again shared, "There was no dickly. Let the record show."
However Reza may have approached working with Ryan differently. "Mind you if I had been working with Ryan, it would have gotten dickly. Just wanted to put that out there."
With that all cleared up, Taylor (who even made a cameo on MDLNY) then revealed the origins to her partnership with Ryan, which included her most working with him on his team's Brooklyn office. "Actually he gave me kind of a bulls*** job in the beginning. And I knew it was a very low risk, not so great job," she recalled. "But he was testing me when the stakes weren't that high, so I gladly accepted the challenge and we took the job. It was a property that wouldn't sell for about three years and once I staged it and fixed it and did everything, it sold within two weeks, $50,000 over asking. And it was a bidding war. So from that point on we have been very happily [working together]. He's like my work husband and I'm his work wife kind of a thing. Now, basically, if there's anything that Ryan does, I do it."
