Roh Habibi opened up about being raised Muslim on last weeks episode of Million Dollar Listing San Francisco, while he was working with a same-sex couple, Marcus and Robbie, who were in the process of adopting a child. Now on tonight’s finale Roh says that viewers will see his friendship with Marcus and Robbie grow.
“I am humbled by the outpouring of love and support. On tonight’s finale, you’ll see Marcus, Robbie, their daughter Apple, my wife Shugufa, my daughter Zahara and I come together as our friendship flourishes,” he says. “It is an honor and a privilege to have these amazing new friends in our lives.”
Roh struggled with an internal dilemma and not initially understanding their lifestyle. But personal reflection and an honest conversation with Marcus and Robbie led to a new point of understanding, with Roh later telling the couple, “you guys have truly helped open up my perspective in seeing things in a different way.”
After the episode aired, Fans flooded Roh’s social media with well wishes and praise for his honesty, and openness after he shattered stereotypes. “Thanks for speaking up about your values and faith, with love, not hate, on tonight’s episode! #courage #faith,” said fan Felicia Williams, “What a touching, and insightful discussion with your clients Roh! Best reality segment I’ve ever seen,” said Peggy Goodwin.
As for Roh’s co-stars, all does not end well, “It has been a tough season for me to endure Justin and Andrew‘s antics. I’m not a mean spirited person, and I conduct my business with honestly, integrity, and respect. It was difficult to be targeted by my co-stars and it’s disheartening to see them carry so much anger towards me. In truth, nobody is perfect, and we all have our moments because real estate is a very competitive and stressful business. I am only human, so the pressure gets to me as well and I apologize for losing my temper. I forgive Justin and Andrew because life is too short to harbor grudges, and in the end I truly want all of us to succeed.”
Roh says he’s hopeful for season two, “I am grateful to Bravo and World of Wonder Productions for giving me this incredible opportunity, and I would be honored to be asked back if the show is picked up for a season 2. My journey has just begun and I’d love to continue sharing it with the viewers as I take my career to the next level.”
As for the return of Justin and Andrew to the show Roh says he’s not so sure, “I really don’t know if they will return to the show because that decision is not up to me, so we’ll see what the future will bring,” adding, “Whatever happens, I wish them the best and hope they will eventually let go of the negativity and resentment they harbor towards me so they can just move forward with their lives in peace and happiness.
The season 1 finale of Million Dollar Listing San Francisco airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
