What Happened To Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff On Millionaire Matchmaker?
A new season of Millionaire Matchmaker debuted last night and missing were Patti Stanger’s longtime employees and matchmakers Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff.
Even worse, zero explanation was giving for the sudden exit of Patti’s long time workers, with Patti just simply introducing us to her three new assistants.
Many are now wondering what happened to Destin and Rachel? Well we did a little digging at Reality Pop, and what we can say is that it doesn’t appear to be an amicable split.
Destin and Rachel spent a lot of time last night retweeting messages from fan who were making it clear that they missed them on the show and the show wasn’t the same without them.
This morning, Destin took to his Twitter and posted the following
cryptic message about his departure -
“For the record, @RachelFederoff & I were not ‘assistants’ – I ran a multi-million dollar company and was a fantastic matchmaker and Rachel was VP of Matchmaking. There’s nothing wrong with being an assistant, but we worked very hard to get to where we were with Patti and the show – and the frustrating public perception that we didn’t do so many many things with her, the company, the clients and the show is now amplified by a false statement that we were ‘assistants’ in tonight’s episode. Ugh. Whatever. Ok moving on- here’s to new film and tv endeavors and @DNRBrands ! We wish Patti and the show much success! We love you friends, family and FANS! Please show your support via twitter and Facebook and any social networking – we love hearing from you ! And yes, we left by choice to pursue new endeavors.”
Interesting that Destin is upset at being referred to as an assistant. Patti also had the following to say via Twitter about their departure -
It seems everyone is talking in circles about the real reason for Rachel and Destin’s departure from the show, but I’m going to go ahead and take a guess that it might have been some sort of contract dispute between them and perhaps Bravo/production company. Perhaps they wanted more money or more responsibilities on the show. Who knows. But it definitely appears that they did not fully exit the show on their own accord. And as a fan of the show, I must say I missed them, and thought they deserved a better exit/explanation from the series.
TELL US – DID YOU MISS RACHEL & DESTIN ON THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON?
UPDATE: In an exchange with a fan, Rachel states she and Destin left the show on their own -
