At the rate we are going, we might have to change the title of the show to ‘Two Homos and the Straight Dude.’ …
You know Madison chose to come out on TV and make a big to do about it, which I respect.

For the second time in two seasons, a cast member on Bravo’s docudrama Million Dollar Listing is coming out as gay.
But while Madison Hildebrand started as quasi-straight and eventually discovered his sexuality in about 90 seconds of thinly developed narrative, Josh Flagg’s dating life has never been a part of the show, although his Judaism and other aspects of his personal life have been included.
Real Housewives might have less authenticity, but feels more organic than a lot of Million Dollar Listing, which I blame on the production, because the cast members are really real estate agents who are doing real deals.
Why we can’t see that instead of fake conflict between them is beyond me, but I guess they know what they’re doing since I’m still watching, even if I’m rolling my eyes.Many people knew, many had no idea.” Josh also differentiates his decision to share his sexual orientation with viewers from Madison’s: “Madison did not beat me to the punch.Madison just decided to come out on national television before I did, but as far as I know, I was out to the people I wanted to be out to well before Madison was.That changes on Tuesday’s episode, which, in a remarkable coincidence, happens to be the same day that Josh’s second book, a memoir that includes discussion of his sexuality, will be released.(He previously wrote A Simple Girl: Stories My Grandmother Told Me, which is about his grandmother, Edith Flagg, easily the best character on the show who has a pretty fascinating story herself.) Last week’s episode hinted at Josh’s coming out when Josh discussed his book with someone who asked if “Colton” knew about certain content in the book.That wasn’t explained on the show–I wouldn’t expect Million Dollar Listing to have a coherent narrative–but he was referring to Colton Thorn, Josh’s long-time boyfriend/partner.
