    Love Love Love Jeff Lewis.

    .Love Love Love Brad

    We’ll see about the others :/

  2. Mikki12 said

    Dy: I agree with you about Jeff and Brad. Just wondering if Rachel’s show will come back? I’m also excited about Chris March. I remember him well from Project Runway. HGTV already has a real estate show titled “Selling New York.” But if Bravo does its show the way they’ve done Million Dollar Listing I see another hit.

  3. dy said

    Hi Mikki

    Ohh I forgot to say I love Tabitha also..Oh yea I remember Chris Mach too, Love!! OY!

    That real estate show sounds interesting too.
    I’m wondering about Rachel also..I die..Banannas!!

  4. Mikki12 said

    Dy: I’m really glad that Tabatha will be spreading her wings and taking on more than beauty salons. It will be nice to see her tackling other types of businesses. Speaking of hair: I wonder if Shear Genius will be returning?

    One thing I am sad about is Million Dollar Listing has ended for the season. I really, really like that show!

    I wonder if Patty Stanger’s show, can’t remember the exact name but something like Millionaire Matchmaker, is not being renewed. Not a big fan, just curious.

  6. Mrs T Soprano said

    Also love the concept for Jeff Lewis’s new show! And that Jenny and Zoila will be along for the ride.

  7. Dalai Mama said

    Bravo can do NOTHING to mitigate the announcement that Mad Men will not be returning until 2012.
    I shake my little Tibetan fist at AMC and do my best Jimmy Cagney: “Why… you dirty rats, you…”
    That is all.

  8. dy said

    @4 Idon’t know Mikki,and like MTS what about Patty Stangers show, she drove me crazy but I got akick out ofthe show.

    @7 Hi Dalai..lmao

    Hi M.T.S.

  9. Mikki12 said

    I just realized something. Bethenny Ever After is barely into its 2nd season and Bravo is already announcing the show will back for season #3. Wow! Are the ratings that good? As for Millionire Matchmaker – I think the show has run its course. Not sure what is left to do with it anymore. Patti has put together straight couples, gay couples, and everything in between. She’s done California. She’s done New York. What’s left? Canada?

  10. Bryan said

    Why does this dallas show look like a possible Dallas Housewives, yeah right the dallas night life puts us all to shame, please!!!

  11. G-sus said

    I guess that is where the rumors that they were doing a Dallas version on HW came from. I also noticed that the Donny Deutsch show only aired one night and didn’t make the list, it truly sucked, wonder what the ratings were?
    And wasn’t there a rumor that Mauricio was going to be on the NY version of MDL?

  12. Bryan said

    @11 G,sus, Maybe that was all rumors or he is just doing a guest spot?

  13. Bryan said

    Good Morning All

  14. GingerTee said

    I love Tabitha’s show. I hate that I just started watching it. I missed so much

  15. Mrs T Soprano said

    Morning Dy! Mikki12: I agree, there wasn’t much more they could do with Patty Stanger. I don’t think she was very successful anyway.

  16. dy said

    Hi MTS

    I don’t think so either, I agree with you and Mikki.

    I just got a kick out of that show, cause I couldn’t belive that %^&* that came out of P.S.’s mouth( she is so freakin rude) And some of those Millionaires cracked me up, Whoa..There were some whacks on

  17. Mikki12 said

    Hi Dy..Hi MTS..Hi Everyone!

    Millionaire Matchmaker was pretty straight-forward in the first season or two. Then in an effort to make the show more “interesting” Patti’s language became more vulgar and outrageous. If I heard that woman say “the penis does the picking” one more time I might have thrown a shoe at the TV set. Then again, I never understood how anyone could take Patti seriously when she had assistants that looked like they were on their way to a Halloween party. Destin and that hair – gimme a break. This new show Project Soulmate looks like it will be a carbon copy of Millionaire Matchmaker only with a NY setting.
