Donny deutsch dating advice
While still nominally chairman of the agency, these days Donny busies himself working on Donny Deutsch, the brand.
Of note: Since offloading his agency, Deutsch has been on a mission to achieve star status outside of advertising.
In 2004, he began hosting a nightly show on CNBC, , which debuted as a general talk show but later transitioned into business-oriented self-help fare and was eventually canceled in 2008.
He's since become a regular on MSNBC (although he was taken off the air for several months in 2010 after making unflattering comments about Keith Olbermann), and remains a seasonal ritual on good pal Donald Trump's magazine (it's called "Deutsch Mark.") He's also dabbled in film production, too, setting up his own production company several years ago.
Unfortunately, he didn't take his work very seriously, and was almost immediately fired by his dad for slacking off on the job.
Who: The brash, often obnoxious chairman of the advertising agency founded by his dad, Deutsch is an inescapable media presence these days: He's a talking head on MSNBC, the former host of CNBC's , and a bestselling author.
Backstory: Donny's father, David Deutsch, started a small ad agency called David Deutsch Associates in 1969.
With a team of young, creative staffers on board (mostly "Jews, chicks, and fags" in Donny's words), Deutsch Inc.
grew exponentially during the '90s thanks to the addition of blue-chip clients like Bank of America, Ikea, Domino's, Pfizer, Mitsubishi, Old Navy, and Revlon.
(He spent years renovating it and occupied an apartment at Trump Park Avenue—for a reported ,000 a month—during the construction process.) In the fall of 2010, he sold his 3.3-acre beachfront estate off Further Lane in East Hampton for million.
