What did happen to flash-in-the-pan reality show stars like Tiffany Pollard (“Flavor of Love”), Jason Wahler (“Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County”), Eden Wood (“Toddlers & Tiaras”) and Jonny Fairplay (“Survivor”) after they went off the air?

Tuesday 18

Country Buck$” (A&E 8:03pm) World’s Laziest TV Producer: “Um, how about ‘Duck Dynasty,’ but with redneck deer hunters instead of redneck duck hunters?” World’s Laziest Network Executive: “Fine. Whatever. I’m going to lunch.”
