Restaurant consultant Ben Vaughn lends his expertise to restaurants across the country in desperate need of a health upgrade in the new series “Health Inspectors,” which premieres Friday, October 26, at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Ben uses his years of experience in the restaurant industry to assess kitchens from top to bottom, leaving no stone, or stove, unturned. From high-end restaurants to small cafés, Ben holds the owners and staff accountable for the messes they’ve made and shows them what they need to do to pass inspection and stay in business. In the first episode, Vaughn tackles “Rats in the Cellar” at Salud in Chicago, then moves on in subsequent shows to “Slugs in the Walk-in” at Harley's in Oklahoma and “Recipe for Disaster” at O'Donnell's in Louisiana. Vaughn is now living in Atlanta where he is the culinary director and executive chef at both Max Lagers and the new White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails in downtown Atlanta.
I met Mina on Twitter and grabbed her debut, How to Discipline Your Vampire shortly thereafter. If you don’t follow Mina on Twitter @MinaVaughn, you should. After all, it was the incredible amount of voice she fits into a scant 140 characters that made me run to buy her debut. I had no idea what I was getting into when I opened her first book, but I quickly realized this: once I was in Mina’s universe, I never wanted to leave it again. The same compelling, hilarious voice that had enthralled me on Twitter was only magnified in How to Discipline Your Vampire, and I began to yearn for the next book entry in Mina’s DOMME-NATION series, How to Reprimand Your Rock Star. Well, it just arrived, approximately five days ago. I have already torn through it, and because I despise spoilers, all I can say is this: buy it for yourself, then tune into the show. Seeing talent is one thing; listening to the lovely voice behind it quite another

Hailing from Tucson, Arizona, Haeley may look like an angel, but there’s more to her than meets the eye. This girl knows how to get down country-style and isn’t afraid to show it. Her new EP Hoot n’ Holler showcases Haeley’s infectious personality with her boot-stompin’ tunes including Boom in the Boondocks and Shakin’ in Your Boots, a vindictive anthem of a girl done wrong. While Haeley has been performing her whole life, her first big break came when she was just 16 when her American Idol Season 9 audition resulted in a spot among the Top 20 finalists. This success gave her the confidence boost she needed to “hit the ground running” in terms of her career. Following Idol, Haeley made the move to Nashville and since then, she has been writing and performing non-stop and has been taking part in several industry events, including performing and signing autographs during the CMA Music Festival and playing regularly at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville. Haeley is on her way to becoming country pop’s next darling with her genuine optimism, infectious effervescent personality and enthusiasm for singing that cannot be deterred.
