LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – What happened to Madison Hildebrand on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, where is Madison, and why is Madison not on MDLLA 2014? Several months ago LALATE exclusively reported that Madison Hildebrand was leaving Million Dollar Listing. Tonight, BravoTV is leaving viewers guessing if a Madison exit will be portrayed on air, or not.
The query about what happened to Madison Hildebrand is the latest for BravoTV. In the last two years, the network had had a poor track record with exiting longstanding characters. When Patti Stanger’s Destin and Rachel departed her show, there was no explanation. BravoTV came under fire for giving no explanation on air, within the confines of Stanger’s show, as to Destin and Rachel’s departure. Stanger’s only explanation was dropped in a quick WWHL question.
So will the network make good tonight and at least depict a departure by Madison? Since Madison’s exit, Josh Altman told local news that he is happy Madison Hildebrand left the show because in his opinion Madison was “boring” and not helping the show. Others might have preferred it was Altman who left MDLA, not Madison.
On June 19, Madison first indicated news that they would be leaving the show. “Big news coming soon. Makes me happy, sad, excited and emotional to think about….bite your tongue for a few more days”. Then, Madison has also shared news that he was spending the summer living in the City near West Hollywood.
Eventually, BravoTV designated January 23 as the press date for the show. That day, the new cast changes were announced, the new season debut date was reveal, and Madison announced his departure. “Hello #MDLNY @FredrikEklundNY @luisdortiz @RyanSerhant – wish u many more great seasons! As u know, I made the decision to leave #MDLLA #love.” Madison tweeted a thank you message to his fans. “BIG NEWS! I’ve made my decision 2 leave #MDLLA & focus on exciting, new endeavors. BIG thx 2 my fans, family & @Bravotv 4 ur support! #happy”.
For now, Madison will be greatly missed.
