Fredrik Eklund Video Film Past Addressed in MDLNY Reunion, Again

Fredrik Eklund Video Film Past Addressed in MDLNY Reunion, Again


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Fredrik Eklund’s gay video, film and awards past is visited on Million Dollar Listing New York Reunion Part 2 tonight, once again. Yes, Fredrik Eklund appeared as Tag Eriksson (or Tag Ericsson) in a series of films recorded decades ago. And while viewers have know that for years, BravoTV is back pushing Eklund’s past on them once again, courtesy of Ryan and Luis. Ironically, if you look up “Tag Eriksson” videos on IMDB, several videos come up of Ryan and Luis from MDLNY.

Andy Cohen says tonight “that issue has never fully resolved for you”. Eklund rolls his eyes, wondering why something from last season has to be brought up. Eklund remarks of Ryan’s 2013 scene “No, it was the most evil thing anyone could do. In my 12 years in New York no one has ever had a problem with my past. It was genius to make it a scandalous past and put it on national cameras.” Ryan replied “You are trying to make it a dirty secret and make it wrong.”

Andy pushed for more explanation. Eklund remarks “Twelve years ago I did a few gay … movies. It was a couple weeks of my life.” But Ryan remarks “You won an award!” “Yes, I won awards. Several awards.”

Ryan says his scene was harmless. Eklund disagrees. “Ryan everybody knew what you were talking about. This isn’t real estate. You didn’t show the movie. But everyone thought including the viewer thought that you were. That was your point, that was your plan. You succeeded. I have always been who I am.”



Fredrik Eklund, Tag Eriksson Battles Past on Million Dollar Listing NY

Fredrik Eklund Battles Tag Eriksson Video on Million Dollar Listing NY


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Fredrik Eklund battles a Tag Eriksson video in the Million Dollar Listing New York season finale tonight. Fredrik appeared as Tag Eriksson aka Tag Ericsson in many videos, calendars, and pictures far before he was cast in Million Dollar Listing NY. In fact, the story was revisited by news reports when Fredrik first joined the series last year. But tonight, in the spirit of a typical Bravo “revelation”, someone’s past is revisited for ratings.

Million Dollar Listing NY does its best Married to Medicine finale tonight. Last season on Married2Med, Bravo brought up mugshot photos of one cast member as another cast member produced a “revelation” about an arrest. Of course the revelation was not much a shocker. Tonight’s video is even less so.

Before joining Million Dollar Listing NY, Fredrik Eklund granted interviews to the New York Times and others about his past. He even published a book is his native country which allegedly discussed his past, his family’s reaction, and his upbringing.

So why is Ryan Serhant bringing this up Tag Eriksson tonight? That’s because Ryan Serhant is the “American Dream” and Fredrik Eklund isn’t? Ironically, Ryan shows the video to purportedly fellow brokers who probably already know about Fredrik’s past.

Nevertheless Fredrik Eklund reacts to the drama in the “reality show”. “I thought I show play you a scene from a very special movie”, Ryan fumes tonight. Fredrik says “right away I’m getting a bad feeling in my stomach.” Ryan replies “I am the American dream and you are cheap import.” It remains unclear how that line by Ryan will react among viewers.

Meantime, are Fredrik and Derek still together? Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan are still together. In May 2012, LALATE first broke that the next season of MDLNY will feature Fredrik Eklund and boyfriend Derek Kaplan getting very close.

By August, LALATE exclusively reportedly that the couple would marry this season. At the time he tweeted “Thank you all for the love and the wishes and recommendations reg the coming wedding. @derekkaplanart and I send hugs”. He told news that their wedding spot would be “somewhere warm”.

Kaplan is a an abstract artist. On his website he says “it allows me the freedom to interpret emotional subject matter as I perceive it, through my own choice of color and accompanying techniques.”



Tag Eriksson, Tag Ericsson: Fredrik Eklund Video Past Returns to MDLNY

Tag Eriksson, Tag Ericsson: Fredrik Eklund Video Past Returns to MDLNY



LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Tag Eriksson aka Tag Ericsson (Fredrik Eklund) videos and photos dominates the Million Dollar Listing New York season finale. Fredrik Eklund under the names Tag Eriksson and Tag Ericsson appeared in videos years before his real estate career started. Next week in the season finale of Million Dollar Listing New York, Ryan Serhant plays one of Fredrik Eklund’s videos for fellow brokers.

The entire Tag Eriksson, Tag Ericsson (photos below) angle about Fredrik Eklund has been known by MDLNY producers and Bravo far before the show started its first season. In fact, when the 2012 season debuted, LALATE reported that Bravo had hired Eklund following his experience in more than six films, some shot in California. He would even pick up a 2004 Gay VN Award for one role. But Bravo has a longstanding history of bringing up people’s “pasts” in season finales and manifesting them as bigger revelations than they are. The most notable recent example was the mugshot picture in the Married to Medicine season one finale.

In the years that followed after he left the “video” business and went into real estate, Fredrik was very open about his past. In fact, in 2010, Fredrik Eklund sat down for a news interview with the New York Times. Years earlier, he even published a book detailing his past.

Next week, on the season finale, Ryan is asked by his brother “why are you so upset with Fredrik?” Ryan replies “I’m not obsessed with Fredrik Eklund. I’m obsessed with getting even with Fredrik Eklund.”

Ryan has an open house. And with real estate brokers in attendance, Ryan plays a video. It is believed that the video to be shown in the episode is one of the Tag Eriksson productions. “I thought I show play you a scene from a very special movie”, Ryan tells the brokers. Fredrik says “right away I’m getting a bad feeling in my stomach.” Ryan replies “I am the American dream and you are cheap import.”

The New York Times wrote in 2010 “For Mr. Eklund, the … films offered an escape from the strictures of Old World Sweden. How others might judge him was not a concern. ’Did I ever think it would affect my career negatively?’ he said. ’No. Did I think that I might fall in love with somebody one day who might have a problem with it? Yes.’”

Fredrik eventually published a huge hit book about his life. It was called “Bananflugornas Herre” or “Lord of the Fruit Flies.” The book became a massive sensation because it discussed Fredrik’s coming of age in the Los Angeles “film” industry and other issues in his life. The book detailed his life growing up in a family “with ties to prime ministers, the royal family, even the legendary director Ingmar Bergman” and more.

Fredrik Eklund, Derek Kaplan Still Together on Million Dollar Listing NY

Fredrik Eklund, Derek Kaplan Still Together on Million Dollar Listing Tag Eriksson or Tag Ericsson new york



LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who is Fredrik Eklund dating on Million Dollar Listing New York, who is Fredrik’s boyfriend, and are Fredrik and Derek still together? Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan are still together. But as reported on LALATE last year, the current season of MDLNY will feature Fredrik Eklund and boyfriend Derek Kaplan getting very close.

Recently, Fredrik Eklund (Tag Eriksson aka Tag Ericsson photos below) admitted to news that the show is a bit more intrusive than he anticipated. “When I signed on to do this show, I had no idea how personal it was all going to get.” He added “I expected the crew to follow my deal-making, and that my business would grow from millions of people over the world watching my negotiation skills. I never thought I would open up to the cameras to this extent with my personal life.”

That is exactly what happens this season. Tonight, Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan weather a storm, not in their relationship, but in the city, on MDLNY. Fredrik in his latest BravoTv.com post explains what it was like when he lost the Marble Host but still had Derek by his side during the storm.

He tells news “That afternoon, Derek and I sat with the dogs in our lap looking out over downtown as the waves got bigger and bigger down on the Hudson River. It was scary, but I held his hand and I felt so good about hopefully winning over all the odds and finally I thought I had found a buyer for the Marble House — within the short 30 days I had.”

But that changed as the storm moved in. “Because when everything stops and turn to darkness, all we have is each other. Derek and the pups and my father, who came for a visit driving down from Washington D.C., made all the difference.”

Yet he admits to news this week that the show didn’t show how dramatic the situation got for him and Derek. In fact “What we you didn’t see was that my car broke down on Washington Street because we ran out of gas.”

And while his business deal fell apart, he eventually got even closer to Derek. “The rest you saw. I lost the Marble House. I didn’t have enough time. To this day I love that property. It is unique, beautiful, dramatic and incredible well done. But I gained something perhaps more important: understanding just how important my loved ones are. That love is priceless.” He also tell news “The later walk in Central Park with my father, Derek, and the pups was beautiful. The city was still quiet. I was quiet. I had changed. I walked behind them, alone, and looking at them — talking and smiling. And then I looked up on the tree tops and I was thankful for everything.”

Fredrik Eklund aka Tag Eriksson Photos Prompt Bravo Twist for MDL

Fredrik Eklund aka Tag Eriksson Photos Prompt Twist for MDL: EXCLUSIVE



LOS ANGELES (LALATE)  – Fredrik Eklund leads Million Dollar Listing New York tonight. But before that, Fredrik Eklund aka Tag Eriksson or Tag Ericsson pictures and videos dominated a different realm of “film” entertainment. Tonight, Fredrik Eklund appears in a newly filmed reality show debuting on Bravo. But MDL is not Fredrik’s first film role. Under the names of Tag Eriksson or Tag Ericsson, Eklund has appeared in other “films”, and those films weren’t about selling real estate. They were about selling something … else.

Bravo reality shows have often featured cast members with known, unknown, and to-be-revealed pasts. Whether it’s Kim Richards’ childhood sitcom roles, or Danielle Staub’s Cop Without a Badge, Bravo for years has artfully inked cast members who feature peculiar pasts.

Tonight, that personality is Fredrik Eklund. He has appeared in more than six films, some shot in California. He would even pick up a 2004 Gay VN Award for one role. In 2010, he sat down for a news interview with the New York Times. But the Times wasn’t hesitant to ask him about his past either.

He was discovered in 2001 by director Wash West. West told the Times then that Fredrik would be perfect for “film” because his “grandfather was a famous actor in Sweden, so he came with this pedigree of Swedish theater and film”.

Fredrik Eklund told the Times two years ago “Did I ever think it would affect my career negatively? No.” He later detailed in a book that his father was supportive about his films, but later happy that he had left that world behind. “Now he’s out of all that, without any scars, and I’m truly happy about that”.

So is there as much fascination in Eklund’s past as Staub? Local news reported that in 1986 Beverly Ann Merrill was arrested in Miami for extortion, kidnapping and intent to distribute an illegal substance. Merrill entered a plea. Beverly Ann Merrill then went on to change her name to Danielle Staub.

In comparison, Eklund in 2005 he had his own calendar, still listed on Amazon but out of stock. By November 2010, news broke that Fredrik had inked a role for Bravo. The revelation  was just one year after his last film role “Unseen” hit the video shelves, according to IMDB.
