Here is a tiny bit more clarity on where Patti Stanger's former assistants went: "Stanger posted to her Facebook about Destin and Rachel to say, 'Ok guys I’m gonna say it once @destinpfaff @RachelFederoff are off pursuing their own dreams @DNRBrands @SushiGirlMovie I wish them well!'"  Upon further review, it appears as if Destin and Rachel have started their own apparel company called DnR Brands, which they describe as follows: 

"DnR Brands Apparel is the brainchild of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff – who, along with their partners, Jean Pierre LaClette and Kanan Kadjar, bring you into the world of the cyberlesque. Mixing elements of vintage with elements of tomorrow, elements of exposed flesh with elements of modesty and elements of you with elements of them – DnR is individual. DnR Brands are the proud manufacturer of Sushi Girl movie apparel available for purchase at www.SushiGirlMovie.com.

"DnR Brands Jewelry is the exquisite creation of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff and is crafted by master jeweler Takayas Mizuno. Along with their partner, Jean Pierre LaClette, DnR brings you into the world of edgy high fashion. Mixing elements of weaponry, elements of peace and elements of yesterday with a dash of glamour – you have the individuality of DnR. Wear DnR."

Andy Greenwald REALLY wants you to watch Black Mirror.  

Per TVLIne, "eing a vocal Orphan Black lover is about to pay off for Patrick J. Adams.

"The Suits star has nabbed a guest spot on Season 2 of BBC America’s cult thriller, our sister site Deadline reports. Adams will play Jesse, a brave but regular guy who lands in a ton of trouble when Tatiana Maslany’s multiple clone characters come into his life.

"The actor, who called the casting a dream come true, has made his passion for the sci-fi series abundantly apparent via Twitter, even campaigning for a guest role. This summer, Adams raved about Maslany’s performance and then lamented her lack of an Emmy nomination."

I watched the premiere of Tequila Sisters last night.  There is no good reason I can set forth as to why you should ever watch a second of this show.  You're welcome.

Per Variety, "Discovery Communications is mulling a bid for Scripps Networks Interactive, parent company of Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel and other lifestyle-oriented cablers.

"A source with knowledge of the situation said the prospect of Discovery making a run at Scripps Networks was discussed Tuesday at a Discovery board meeting."  I REALLY hope this does NOT happen.  Evidently, the masses don't agree with me as "Shares of Food Network and HGTV operator Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. jumped in after-hours trading Tuesday after a report that said the board of Discovery Communications Inc. discussed a possible bid for the company."

Tosh.o has been renewed for 3 additional seasons, FYI.

Here is a preview of Mark and Donnie Wahlberg's new show, Wahlburgers.

Per Variety, "Netflix has acquired animated comedy BoJack Horseman, voiced by Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co.

"Series, with all 12 episodes set to bow on Netflix sometime in mid-2014, revolves around whiskey-drinking humanoid horse BoJack (Arnett) who deals with his personal crises with human sidekick Todd (Paul) and feline agent and ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris). BoJack Horseman will be available in all Netflix territories.

“'Even though he’s been out to pasture, I’ve always admired BoJack for his inimitable style and can-do attitude,' Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s getting off his legendary haunches to join the Internet TV revolution here on Netflix.'"

I missed the Spiedi special on E! earlier this week, but here's a nice recap from US Weekly:

"In the hour-long special, Pratt and Montag spoke candidly about following the instructions of Hills producers to fake scenes and stir up drama. Pratt recalled one particular scene when he kicked Montag out of his car after she refused to move in with him. 'We shot like 14 or 15 takes of that from different angles, and then she got back in my car, and we drove off,' he revealed.

"Montag also revealed that her Hills wedding, which was the mid-season finale in 2009 (and Lauren Conrad's final episode on the show), took two hours as producers begged Pratt to leave her at the altar. In the end, he refused, and the couple married in front of cast members and family. 

"Montag says she regrets not having a more personal ceremony with her actual friends after the televised wedding. She said her family also got wrapped up in the fame that The Hills brought. After Montag's highly-publicized 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, said she liked her daughter's face before the procedures. 

"Since the show, the couple has moved to Santa Barbara, Calif., about an hour away from Los Angeles. They revealed they'd blown through $10 million in 2010, and have since tried to get a handle back on their finances. Pratt, as Us Weekly previously reported, is finishing up a political science degree at the University of Southern California that's been 10 years in the making.

"He's also trying to get back in shape after gaining 50 pounds thanks to his apparent addiction to pie. In After Shock, Pratt and Montag visit a local farmer's market where the former bad boy begs his wife to purchase multiple flavors of the baked dessert. Pratt tries to balance his pie addiction with trips to his personal trainer, who he says has helped him to focus and control his infamous rage. 

"Pratt said people on the street still flick him off, attack him, and try to fight him."  Thank god!
