Destin and Rachel of Millionaire Matchmaker Prepare for Valentines Day


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Destin and Rachel formerly of Millionaire Matchmaker are preparing couples for Valentines Day. What happened to Destin and Rachel of Millionaire Matchmaker, where are Patti Stanger’s executives Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff, and what are they doing now? Tonight on Millionaire Matchmaker (Bravo), Patti Stanger will a new staff prepares for Valentines Day. But off camera, her former executives Destin and Rachel are preparing couples for Valentines Day as well.

When the Millionaire Matchmaker season started, Destin and Rachel were not longer on screen, prompting confusion by viewers. While exits and entries prove to be big ratings draws in reality tv storylines, Bravo did not deliver a scene with Destin and Rachel exiting Millionaire Matchmaker last season or this season.

Off camera, the beloved couple has told news that they are excited about their new business ventures, film projects, and other endeavors. But as the big day for matchmakers arrives next week, Destin and Rachel are ramping up to help viewers and locals. “Valentines Day is almost here! Let @destinpfaff and I help you with your love life”, Rachel tells fans.

The pair is ramping up their matchmaking efforts this week, but not on camera but off. “Destin and Rachel are here to help”, the couple writes. “With over 15 years of combined experience, Destin and Rachel are not therapists, but practical love and life coaches. From helping the romantically challenged and socially awkward, to the life-confused and ex-obsessed – Destin and Rachel have done it all.”

And contrary to perceptions, the pair explains “We don’t match you, we help you match yourself.” They add “We don’t tell you what to do with your life, we help you make your own life decisions.” A new episode of Millionaire Matchmaker airs tonight on Bravo.

BRAVO: Where are Destin and Rachel? Pfaff, Federoff Express Gratitude

BRAVO: Where are Destin and Rachel? Pfaff, Federoff Express Gratitude


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Where are Destin and Rachel? That was the question posed to Patti Stanger during a recent WWHL episode as fans tried to grasp where are Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff of Millionaire Matchmaker. While Bravo many of several of its shows, and Andy Cohen executive produces many of them as well, often the entrances and exits of their stars leave fans guessing. In this case, the answers remained more outside the confines of the new season of Millionaire Matchmatcher as opposed to within.

The exit of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff from Millionaire Matchmaker could have gotten a different portrayal in the longstanding Bravo show. But it didn’t. Over the years, Bravo has tackled how to enter and exit new personalities, and in some cases, return them back into the storyline. In many cases the longer the running program, the more problematic as to how to exit a personality.

Several seasons ago, fans had not seen much of Tamra Barney doing real estate deals. But then, suddenly, she was showing potential “client” Heather Dubrow a real estate parcel in Orange County for a possible building deal. Dubrow ended up not singing the purchase deal. But by then Heather had already signed on as the latest entry of RHOA.

Fans were not particularly pleased with the lack of clarity in the exit of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff from the Millionaire Matchmaker storyline this season. Instead, the clarity came from gracious statement online from them and Patti Stanger. Both stated the exit was amiable, with both sides wishing the other continued success and professional growth.

But yet in the realm of TV programming, some fans wanted that to be shown on camera, inside the show. It could have been a big ratings hit. So what did that not happen?

Eventually Patti Stanger appeared on WWHL as the current season started to explain what had happened. Nevertheless, that clarity would not come into the show’s storyline.

The pair tells news “And yes, we left by choice to pursue new endeavors.” For now, many Bravo fans want the pair to return to Bravo for their own show. With the landscape of too many Bravo shows appear to replicate one another in both style and delivery, Destin and Rachel are unique. They have thanked fans in recent weeks for their outpouring of support. But as to whether they would be coming back to Bravo soon, that remains to be seen.

Fans: What Happened to Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff on Millionaire Matchmaker


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – What happened to Destin and Rachel on Millionaire Matchmaker? Bravo fans are left in confusion over the absence of beloved stars Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff in the newest season of Millionaire Matchmaker this winter. Earlier this year, after a short absence, Millionaire Matchmaker returned with a new 2013 season feature Patti Stanger, Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff. Over the summer, LALATE exclusively reported that Bravo was secretly casting new suitors for an upcoming season. And then to everyone’s surprise, Millionaire Matchmaker was back for another season this winter. But gone this season are Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff. So what happened to Destin and Rachel and why did the leave the show and Patti Stanger?

Destin and Rachel tell news that they chose to leave Millionaire Matchmaker to pursue new successful business interests. They also thank fans for their outpouring of their support this fall. “We left by choice to pursue new endeavors.” Destin further told news that they were happy with their departure. And despite what Wendy Williams recently said during a telecast, Destin said “I ran a multi-million dollar company and was a fantastic matchmaker and Rachel was VP of Matchmaking.”

The two offered warm support to Patti and Bravo this Holiday Season. For now they are focusing on “new film and tv endeavors and @DNRBrands”, they report.

But some fans are now finding Destin and Rachel not just on tv but also in person. “Thank you amazing fan in front of Best Buy! It would never get old! We love you and thank you for missing us on the show”, tweeted Destin recently. He also tweeted before Christmas “You guys with all ur cool tweets and fan mail since we left #Matchmaker has been awesome. What great holiday love. Love you all.”

Destin produced Married in a Year (2011) and followed that up with the 2012 release Sushi Girl. “His writing credits include the award winning script RIPP, the theatrical feature script The Disembodied and the Magnolia Pictures/Magnet released action-thriller Sushi Girl, which he also produced. Additionally, as a producer, Pfaff’s films include Lionsgate’s Married in a Year and the horror film DLTC”, reports IMDb. So will Rachel and Destin be coming back to Bravo in their own spinoff show? Fans certainly hope so.

Millionaire Matchmaker Destin, Rachel Left Patti Pre July: EXCLUSIVE

Millionaire Matchmaker Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff Left Patti stanger show what happened to assistants


LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Millionaire Matchmaker returns without Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff tonight to Bravo. What happened to Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff on Millionaire Matchmaker, what happened to Patti Stanger’s “assistants” on Millionaire Matchmaker, and why does Patti Stanger have new assistants this season? Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger has explained outside the show what happened to Destin and Rachel. And while her comments are not consistent with those by Destin and Rachel, LALATE can exclusively report that the exit was before this summer and before a resolution about who owns the name “Millionaire Matchmaker”.

Millionaire Matchmaker stars Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff were never Patti Stanger’s “assistants”. But this season, Bravo claims that Patti has new “assistants”. Destin and Rachel later went on social media to tell news that they helped operate Patti’s company as executives and were never her “assistants”. A seemingly exasperated Stanger said on WWHL recently that she would address the “infamous” question about Destin and Rachel one last time. She claims that they wanted off the show and wanted to do their own thing.

Patti’s comments are not consistent with social media remarks by the pair since the season has started. While Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff confirm to fans that they left the show on their own accord, they do suggest through retweets that they wanted to still have an on-air role with Bravo.

So when did they leave Millionaire Matchmaker? LALATE can report that the pair exited by at least July if not earlier this year. In July, far before any official statement by Bravo, LALATE exclusively reported that Stanger and producers were filming and casting a new season. “All applicants must meet eligibility requirements, which include having a net worth of at least $ 1 million USD, must be single, must be at least 21 years old”, said the casting notice at the time.

Previously, Millionaire Matchmaker returned with a new season after a long break, only to deliver yet another season this month. So why was there a delay? It remains unclear.

But LALATE can also exclusively report that the ownership of the name “Millionaire Matchmaker” for television was just clarified this week. And the owner of the expression “Millionaire Matchmaker”, to be used on television, is not Bravo. It’s Patti Stanger.

Patti Stanger’s company now owns the exclusive trademark to the expression “Millionaire Matchmaker” for television, namely  “entertainment in the nature of on-going television programs in the field of dating and social introduction”, listing the first date of use as 2008. And she may now use the name for website operations as well, namely “internet-based dating, social introduction and social networking services; consulting services in the field of dating; counseling in etiquette and protocol; personal makeover consulting services, namely, personal image development, consultation relating to clothing and fashion.” The date of approval was December 17, 2013. A new episode airs tonight on Bravo.
