Heather Bilyeu is engaged! The Twitter star and real estate agent was proposed to by her boyfriend, Million Dollar Listing star Josh Altman. Bilyeu and Altman have been dating for three years and Altman popped the question to Bilyeu last June. They confirmed the engagement news yesterday on Bravo's TV Dish, which generated buzz for tonight's season premiere of Million Dollar Listing.
The real estate agents and Million Dollar Listing stars have chronicled their relationship on the show, but it is unclear whether the proposal will air on the new season. Bilyeu said that Altman proposed to her during a house viewing. "I had absolutely no idea," Bilyeu confessed. "He planned it perfectly. He did not let on whatsoever that there was something out of the usual going on."
Photos of Bilyeu's engagement ring went viral on Twitter and she later tweeted about her engagement. "I'm very excited to announce that I am now engaged to my best friend @thejoshaltman," she wrote. "Thank u 4 making me the luckiest & happiest woman baby!"
Altman has had nothing but praise for Bilyeu in recent months, describing her before the engagement as a "fantastic" and "very supportive" girlfriend. "I love her more than anything in the world. She's my best friend," Altman gushed. "There's nobody I'd rather spend the rest of my life with than her. She's a great woman and I feel good to have her by my side."
Bilyeu currently works with Sam Real in their company, LA Lux Life, which specializes in luxury homes throughout the Los Angeles area. They have been involved in over $300 million worth of real estate transactions combined. Their biggest sale to date is a $10,750,000 mansion in the Bel Air area.
Million Dollar Listing currently airs in over 30 countries worldwide and averages 1.3 million viewers per episode. The Los Angeles version of the show has been on the air since 2006 and covered six seasons, even spawning a spin-off version in New York. Last season's finale provided record breaking numbers, with 1.58 million viewers tuning in.
