We'd heard designer Chris Benz was going to make an appearance in new HBO show How to Make It in America, but we totally weren't expecting the second local shout-out in the most recent episode. Writes a tipster, "So I'm watching the last show on on-demand and I notice two interesting cameos: Chris Benz as 'hipster 1' and Zarin shopping bags. What a way to do a Housewives crossover on HBO!"
