Hot new properties! Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles will feature two new cast members, James Harris and David Parnes, for its upcoming seventh season.
British lads Parnes, 32, and Harris, 29, moved from London to L.A., where they now own the firm Bond Street Partners. While Harris has lived in the U.S. for ten years, Parnes has been here for five. Moving from foggy, grey London to the sunny West Coast was a no-brainer, they tell Us.
"Sometimes I have to pinch myself literally and appreciate that this is real!" says Parnes. "It's so good — the weather's amazing, the market's amazing, I love the people — everything about L.A. — I'm just completely in love with it."
Joining the show following Madison Hildebrand's departure, Harris and Parnes will join Josh Flagg and Josh Altman, who may have already given them a taste of his infamous no-BS personality.
"I think Josh Flagg is a big fan of ours, we love him, he's funny and charismatic,” Harris tells Us. "And Josh Altman, we will remain quiet on our thoughts about him. But I will say he's a hard worker — he's arrogant and we reserve judgement on our comments there."
Harris and Parnes aren't completely new to the Bravo family: Their firm is a part of Real Housewives hubby Mauricio Umansky’s massive real estate company, The Agency. Known as Kyle Richards' dashing husband on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Umansky has been welcoming to the British duo.
"He'll talk to us about TV but he's really a businessman," praises Harris. "He is all business. He's very supportive in every way. We absolutely love him."
Season 7 of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles premieres on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
