Patti Stanger explains to her friends that she is dating and has been seeing some foreign dude. Her friends tell her she would be a great mother with all her temper tantrums, arguing, and making people feel like sh*t. This is a perfect Segway to tonight’s millionaires where Patti must use her mothering gene to nurture one millionaire into the basics of dating 101.
Patti’s new project Daniel Kibblesmith is a complete nerd who is in desperate need of Patti’s awesomeness to land him a gal pal who also appreciates ventriloquism. Daniel quickly shows off his skills of puppetry except he moves his lips the whole time- isn’t that the exact opposite of being a ventriloquist?

On last night’s season 5 premiere of the Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger took a break from giving her unsolicited love advice to A-list celebrities to return to her day job of finding love for the single millionaires of Los Angeles. She begins the way she ended season four by bashing the singles of New York. Did she forget that is her home territory?
The biggest catch this season is not that Patty shrank 2 dress sizes, but that a certain heart-shaped rock is missing from her left hand. Yes, Patty is back to criticizing matchmaking everyone in LA including herself. Her sidekicks Destin and Rachel are in tow. I was glad to see despite the new single Patty, new office, new recruiters, and new city, that Destin and Rachel kept the same hairstyles.

Out of the goodness of her heart and not at all to promote the new season, Patti is taking it upon herself to dole out advice to one of the most high profile celebrities who is embarking on a new relationship. Are you listening Jennifer Aniston? Because she’s talking to you about your romance with Justin Theroux!
In a new interview with Radaronline, Patti discusses the new beau of everyone’s favorite Friend. She says of Jen’s new man, “I kind of like him, but here’s my problem — he was with the last girl for 15 or 16 years and one day in walks the girl of his dreams and he says bye, see ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! There’s a karmic payback for that. He’s handsome and he likes her and she likes him, they’ve got good body language, so it’s a matter of what really went down that he jumped ship from this girl he lived with for 16 years, something’s not right there.”
Patti believes that things are moving too quickly for Aniston and Theroux. Stating her own professional opinion, Patti explains that it’s odd that Jennifer Aniston would jump so quickly into a relationship with a man who left his significant other for her. After all, Brad Pitt was a huge bad guy when he left his famous wife for the much younger and mysterious Angelina Jolie. Patti reminds us, “She b*tched about Angelina stealing Brad from her!”
According to many media outlets, the next step in the couple’s whirlwind romance is to start a family, and Patti agrees that we’ll be hearing something along those lines very soon. She admits, “I feel like [Jen] might pull the pregnancy card on him.” Patti continues, “Maybe she has, she isn’t as skinny as she used to be, she’s looking great, and she’s glowing.”
Clearly Jennifer Aniston isn’t playing by Patti’s rules, and something tells me we won’t be seeing Jen as a celebrity guest wanting Patti’s advice on the upcoming Millionaire Matchmaker season. Of course, I don’t know why…shouldn’t America’s sweetheart want relationship advice from a single 50-year-old woman who just last year broke off her own engagement? Sign her up–and me too, while we’re at it!
When it comes to the newly divorced Camille Grammer, Patti states: “Camille: I would love to see her with a guy who’s an entrepreneur off the carpet…I’d like to see like a Silicon Valley billionaire — somebody who really appreciates her brain.”
And what about Taylor Armstrong, who’s only been single for a matter of weeks? “Taylor needs to take a dating detox break,” Patti assesses. “I knew for years what was going on and it’s a really rough road. Abuse is abuse. She needs to clean herself up. Get rid of the negative vibration. Find out who Taylor is before she steps off the curb with anybody else.”
Millionaire Matchmaker season 5 premieres tonight on Bravo at 9pm ET. A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below!
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT PATTI’S COMMENTARY ON JENNIFER ANISTON’S RELATIONSHIP? WILL YOU BE WATCHING THE NEW SEASON?
According to the HuffingtonPost, Patti’s real life dating service seems to be more about making money than helping people find love (isn’t the TV show the same?). “Patti barely does any of the matching if any at all,” a young professional who looked for love at Patti’s club reveals. “She passes it off to Destin, Rachel and other account executives. The girl who set me up, that was an account executive, was fired… and she worked for Patti but never even met her once in person!”
And it’s not just the women who barely get to see Patti. The millionaires who pay up to $40,000 a year to join her club in other to meet women reveal they hardly see Patti either.
“The guy I met with, and ended up dating until it got bad, only spoke to someone on the phone,” reveals another insider. “He was never even interviewed in person. He just sent them photos of himself and says he definitely got the hard sell from them. They never even questioned his millionaire status. Her ‘Millionaires Club’ is totally bogus. As long as you can pay the steep fees you are good to go. They will set you up with as many girls as you want for that price.”
Yikes. As for Patti, she declined to comment on the report. The new season of the Millionaire Matchmaker premieres August 15 on Bravo at 9/8c.
So what can we expect on the all new season? Well the show will make its return to Los Angeles after the previous season was filmed in New York. Meanwhile Patti will have some extra help as she calls on celebrity pals Tori Spelling and Jenny McCarthy to provide expert advice for her hapless millionaires.
As always, Patti will spend each episode setting up two wealthy clients including a former NFL player and Million Dollar Listing’s hottieMadison Hildebrand. Returning alongside Patti this season are her Chief Operating Officer Destin Pfaff and VP of Matching Rachel Federoff.
We will also get to see a newly single and ready to mingle Patti try to find her own prince charming on the new season. If you recall, Patti ended her six year relationship with long term boyfriend/fiance Andy Friedman last August. Patti revealed she called things off because she wanted a kid and Andy didn’t.
The Millionaire Matchmaker earned its highest rated season of the series ever last year averaging 1.9 million total viewers per episode. Season five will premiere Thursday, August 15 on Bravo at 9/8c. The preview clip is below!

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW?
Other Bravo stars in the commercial include Kathy Griffin, Kara DioGuardi, Padma Lakshmi, and Patti Stanger. If you recall, this was the same shoot in which some of the Bravo housewives reportedly felt snubbed by Top Chef host Padma, who they say ignored them during the shoot.
During the TCA 2011 Winter Press Tour going on this week, Bravo announced several premiere dates and series renewals on Thursday.
The biggest announcement however came in the form of the widely talked about 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Bravo confirmed yesterday that it will be returning on Sunday, March 6 at 10pm.
Other big announcements included the return date of Bethenny Frankel’s show Bethenny Ever After (season 2), and the renewals of popular shows The Rachel Zoe Project (season 4), Millionaire Matchmaker (season 5) and Flipping Out (season 5). The recent season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker averaged 2.2 million viewers, the highest ratings ever in the show’s history, so the return is not a surprise.
Additionally, Bravo announced that casting is set to begin on the ninth season of Top Chef and that Top Chef Masters will return later this year for a third season with host Curtis Stone. Other shows renewed include Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. New shows coming this year include Platinum Hit with Kara DioGuardi which will debut this Summer and Rocco’s Dinner Party will air later this year. New series Million Dollar Decorators and Pregnant in Heels are both set to premiere in April.
A list of the shows announced with return dates below -
Million Dollar Listing – February 3 at 9 p.m
The Real Housewives of New York – February 15 at 10 p.m
Real Housewives of Orange County – March 6 at 10pm
Bethenny Ever After – February 28 at 10 p.m
Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen will also be moving to new nights, Tuesdays and Sundays, though no official date was announced for the move.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BRAVO’S UPCOMING SHOWS?
Caroline, who is reportedly good friends with Patti, will be shown paying her a visit in her NYC office, hoping to find the perfect matches for her sons – Albie and Chris Manzo. Patti refers to the Manzo boys as MIT aka ‘Millionaires-In-Training.’
According to Caroline, she is tired of her sons complaining about the lack of quality girls around, so she is ready to take action and work with Patti to find matches for Chris and Albie. Are the boys ready to to settle down with a nice girl or will their maturity level be an issue? And more importantly, will tough Mama Bear Real Housewife Caroline approve of the boys’ choices? Find out tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
Judging by the some of the news stories that have come out in recent months about the Manzo boys, it is a safe bet that neither of them is still with their matches from the show. Not much of a surprise considering Patti’s success rate on the show is closer to zero.
