Former DVTV contributor Gus Klein gave me the head’s-up about a Dallas connection related to the new series Thintervention with Jackie Warner, which just started airing on Bravo.

Turns out the self-described “hottie and the hippo” — an overweight gay guy (the “hippo,” pictured) is one contestant seeking Warner’s physical training so he can reduce and look as good as his “hottie” boyfriend — used to be Dallasites.

“Miguel Rossy [the hottie] was a V.P. in finance at Brinker,” Klein informed me. He met Bryan Donovan [the hippo] and were here one year before heading out to L.A.”
