Jill Zarin is still dining out on her whole used to be on Real Housewives of New York thing by inviting a host of former and present Bravolebrities to participate in a charity luncheon at her Hamptons home which she has dubbed “Camp Zarin”.
Bethenny, who is reportedly pr-stuntingdating a new man, claims she is not looking for love "but I would never ever settle again." When Patti asked her if she settled withJason Hoppy, Bethenny didn't bother to answer tactfully or delicately. "Yes, I do," she replied frankly. "I didn't marry the love of my life."
The Bravo reality star has a new batch of millionaires looking for love…everyone from Denise Richards' father (Patti actually likes him) to an arrogant plastic surgeon to some guy who wants to be Eminem. Good times!
DoesPatti Stanger have some serious dirt on a Bravo head-honcho? She must! Because despite seasons of middling ratings, absolutely zero successful matches, and scathing fan reactions The Millionaire Matchmaker has been renewed for a sixth season!
According to the Bravo write-up, this season will represent " a new chapter for Patti" who's had even more plastic surgery because she's now focused on finding love for herself. Let's see if Patti can put her own rules to work!
In addition to searching for love, Patti is also searching for her own past. "While not only finding love for herself, she also uncovers unforeseen information about her birth parents that makes her approach relationships in a whole new way."
Oh Patti Stanger! Perhaps the star of Millionaire Matchmaker could use some anger management classes. It sounds like fame has gone to Patti’s head lately, as it’s reported that she got violent with a crew member from her show. An insider tells The Huffington Post that her behavior could end her stint on Bravo.
Allegedly, Patti slapped someone on the arm when she got frustrated. The source tells the site, “It wasn’t one of her millionaires or ladies hoping to date them — this was a member of the production crew. This is very serious and conversations are being had about firing Patti and canceling her show.”
One former Millionaire Matchmaker contestant went to the extreme to make himself look like he was worth a million bucks (400 million he claimed!), and now, he’s facing time in federal prison! Wow–hope those 15 minutes were worth it!
Michael Prozer, who appeared on season two of the matchmaking show, plead guilty yesterday to the charges of bank, wire, and mail fraud, just as jury selection was about to begin.
Michael paraded himself as the wealthy owner of Xchangeagent Inc., an online payment service for South America. He claimed that he owned a mansion, a private jet, and more, but it was all lies. (GASP! Someone lied to get on a reality TV show!??)
In fact, Michael was a con man of the highest order. He paid a Wachovia Bank employee, Fedor Stanley Salinas, $25,000 to help him fake documents in order to secure a $3 million bank loan. Salinas helped Prozer manufacture documents showing that he had over $21 million in deposits at Wachovia in order to get a multi-million dollar business loan from Park Avenue Bank in Georgia. (Which has reportedly closed its doors over the huge loss!)
The two were caught and indicted last April, but even then, Prozer tried to pretend that he was a high roller and kept up the lies. He told the judge that he would be putting up bail and that his “high profile defense attorney” was going to prove him innocent, but neither promise ever became a reality. After he tried to represent himself several times, the court finally had enough and appointed him an attorney.
The court was shocked when he finally caved and plead guilty yesterday. His cohort, Salinas, also entered a guilty plea this week. They both face sentencing in August.
Ladies, get in line! This fella will be available again in 15-20. What a catch! So glad to see the producers did a thorough background check on that guy.
