Oh honey, no, just no

I loves Bryan Batt, God knows I do, but I'll kill him dead fo' I let him* stake his future on crap projects. My beloved Sal won't be returning to "Mad Men" and even though Batt owns a home furnishings store in New Orleans, he's cashing a quick check for signing off on this shite.

"The Hef" loveseat, a collaboration between Batt and Playboy Enterprises, is a limited edition of 50 pieces. Manufactured by Brownstone Furniture [who?], it features gray mohair upholstery, nail head detailing, rosewood side panels and will set you back 15,000 smack-a-roos.

But wait - before your eyeballs roll back into your brain cavity - each loveseat is signed by the Crypt Keeper himself, Hugh Hefner. Oh well then, that price is most certainly justified.

*Seriously - how awesome was Oprah in "The Color Purple"?

Hell to the no indeed. Oh Sal, I'm disappointed. He needs to take his Bye Bye Birdie act on the road if you ask me.

Oh, he just looks quite uncomfortable. I hope its because he is being eyed off by the rabbits rather than a comment on the comfort of his $15k sofa.

Whew, it's just a sofa. I thought you were going to say he signed a deal to star in a biopic of Hef's life. You know, the kind of poorly written crap that never dies because it ends up "world premiering" on Lifetime or some such every 6 months for the next 10 years.

Man's gotta make a living. I'm disappointed he isn't coming back to MM but can't say I'm surprised.

Mohair? I'm surprised it's not a more, um, absorbent material.

No, Sal, no. Yuck.

He's not coming back? Boo. And that is one uncomfortable looking couch.
