Millionaire Matchmaker Season 5

Following a stint on Watch What Happens Live that left host Andy Cohen visibly disgusted in response to her homophobic and anti-Semitic remarks, things are getting worse for former reality star Patti Stanger!

Now one of Patti’s former clients (who left the club after being dissatisfied with the service she received) is speaking out about the behind the scenes workings of The Millionaire Matchmaker. And surprise, surprise – Patti is just as abrasive off camera!

Bryce Gruber, who appeared on the show as a Millionairess in season four, shares her experience working with Patti and the club. According to Bryce, Patti (who is Jewish, herself) insulted the Jewish-American founder of The Luxury Spot.com, by telling her she looked “too Jewish.” Um… seriously?

“She mentioned several times that my curly hair was ‘too Jewish,’” Bryce continues. “And asked me why I didn’t get my nose fixed for my Bat Mitzvah.”

In addition to basically calling her unattractive, Patti described Bryce – who if you remember from the show was very reticent on her date – as “uptight” during her most recent appearance on WWHL.

And as for Bryce’s match – guess what?! It wasn’t successful! “She didn’t listen to me when I said what I wanted,” Bryce relays of Patti’s matchmaking skills. “She got upset with me when I said I didn’t like any of the men she picked and, off-camera, she pulled me aside and said, ‘If you want to look like a sweetheart to America, you’ll pick the teacher.’ She coerced me.” Wow! Patti is losing credibility (if she ever had any to begin with) by the minute!

Patti’s former assistant of eight years, Chelsea Autumn, is also giving her opinion about working with Patti! Chelsea, who left what she previously called the “claws of Stanger” in 2010 to start her own matchmaking service, Queen of Hearts, explains of Patti’s attitude and behavior: “I think she has a lot of deeper issues that she’s never really dealt with.”

And This isn’t the first time drama concerning Patti’s treatment of others is making headlines! Shortly after leaving the show, Chelsea’s rep gave a very harsh statement about the “constant abuse” associated with working with Patti, which was corroborated when TMZ featured a recorded conversation of Patti berating a stylist!

“I don’t think she loves herself, and if you don’t love yourself, no one else is going to be able to love you,” Chelsea describes, painting a sad picture of the woman who claims she can help anyone find love.

Are you shocked that Patti’s treatment of her clients is even worse behind the scenes?! Do you think Chelsea’s description of Patti is accurate or does she have an ulterior motive? Do you expect there to be another season of The Millionaire Matchmaker?

I’m not sure how it’s news that Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger has offended people, but apparently it is!

While appearing on Sunday night’s season premiere of Watch What Happens Live an unedited Patti spouted off about how gays can’t be monogamous and Jewish men lie as a shocked Andy Cohen (who is both gay and Jewish) seemed visibly appalled! And after that little episode I foresee a “cancelled” notice in her future…

When a caller asked about open relationships Patti, who has long been an advocate for monogamy with the couples she’s matched, informed him that, “In the gay world, there’s always going to be open [relationships].” Then when the caller confirmed that he was gay, she actually advocated he pursue open relationships telling him, “Ok, well then you’re ok. There’s Grindr [the online site that connects gay/bisexual men in the same area] for you. Go on Grindr. You’ll have a great time.” Well, I’m sure Grindr ummmm… appreciated the free press!

When a shocked Andy asked: “So wait, the gays can have open relationships?” Patti retorted with: “There’s no curbing the gay!” She continued, explaining: “I’ve tried to curb you people and you just don’t [change]. I’ve decided to throw in the towel and just say, ‘Do what you want. But when you find the right person, you will know.’”

Andy argued back that as a gay man he wants a monogamous relationship, but Patti bit the hand that feeds her, by laughing in his face and demanding to know “When was the last time you had a [serious] boyfriend?” Maybe Patti is upset that Andy fired her bestie Jill Zarin, or something…

Patti continued her barrage of insults aimed at the gay community when she expressed surprise that a gay viewer who spoke to Andy and Patti via Skype was cute, offering this gem:. “First of all, you’re very handsome. I thought you were straight,” she said. “That’s a compliment!”

A confused Andy, wanted to know how that was a compliment and Patti – who really needs a muzzle big time – answered: “Because he’s not queeny. Like you want a queen.” Oh, poor Andy, he looked so distraught!

Patti also defamed the Jewish community when she declared that “Jewish men lie.” Perhaps she’s had some sort of negative experience in that department, but to slander an entire group – a little harsh.

After facing some serious heat for her comments, Patti took to the Twitterz to set the record straight! “Attention male gays: I support you and my comment on [Watch What Happens Live] was to an L.A. guy who can’t find commitment.”

Patti apologized for her offensive remarks, telling US Weekly, “I am so sorry. I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.” As for Bravo, the network made it clear they do not share the views expressed by Patti with the following statement: “Her comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused.”

Patti’s comments were even more surprising given that she’s always been an advocate for the gay community – even appearing in a NoH8 campaign. But don’t worry, Patti’s not just giving the gays bad dating advice! Appearing on New York Live she accused single, Manhattan women of being too smart to find a man! And encouraged them to skip talking about their academic accomplishments or using big words if they want to wear a big white dress!

“They don’t like them before they are married,” Patti explained, referring to men not wanting to date intelligent women! “You’ve got to dumb it down a little because men are not that bright.” Oh, Patti… seriously? 1950 called… Now here’s the real question do think this woman has ever made a successful match?

And on last night’s WWHL, Andy rightfully named Patti the Jackhole of the week!

In addition to the latest fiasco, the ratings for Patti’s show have continued to decline. In fact, the episode that aired last Thursday only garnered 809,000 viewers. In comparison, Flipping Out averaged 1.3 million viewers for its most recent season. We have to wonder whether Patti’s days on Bravo are now numbered…

Do you think Patti was serious or joking with her comments? Were you offended by Patti’s remarks? Do you think this incident may result in Bravo canceling Millionaire Matchmaker?


An all new episode of Millionaire Matchmaker aired Sunday on a special night with the single 50-year-old Patti Stanger once again setting up rich singles to no avail!

The theme this week seems to be helping those who typically help others find their loves! Why is Patti not setting herself up? The first bachelor is Steve G. Jones, described as a “famous hypnotherapist” who sometimes helps Patti with her single millionaires. Steve is 42 and divorced. Patti is excited to help Steve find love while Dustin just wonders why he can’t help himself find love by, you know, “hypnotherapizing” himself!

The next bachelor is Creepy McCreepington Gary Coxe, described as a “big time motivational speaker” who has a very long laundry list of what he looks for in a partner. Gary is 46-years-old and looking for a Jessica Simpson type aka a 110-pound blonde (Err has he seen JS lately???), age 29 – 33, is not a career woman and can spend all day cooking for him. Gary would also like his blonde bimbo to be Christian and spiritual. Jesus Barbie anyone? Paging Alexis Bellino! I repeat paging Alexis Bellino!

Hold up, ten million dollar man cleans his own pool?

Boys, Boys, and more Boys! Finally an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker that was not filled with skanky girls or creepy old men. As Patti Stanger would say, this episode was filled with slip and slides, and I am not talking about the cheap tarp you use to put in your front yard. These slip and slides made this lousy hour of television worth it.

In case Patti did not say it enough times, tonight’s episode was Millionaire Matchmaker history. Two gay millionaires! And both these men seemed pretty great. I actually found out the age old question where are all the guys at? They’re gay! Yes, this episode is proof that all my hope of finding a single decent guy is out the door.

Patti’s D-list celebrity client Madison Hildebrand from Millionaire Dollar Listing finally agrees to let Patti set him up. I sense Bravo did some persuading here. He is apprehensive- do you blame him? Patti sets her millionaires up with scary people – remember the party girl Sheerena.

New day and new time! Millionaire Matchmaker is still here, and Patti Stanger has a whole new night to make her feel better about herself. We begin this episode in true Patti fashion with her showing off her body her DVDs. She is telling her manager how skinny she is while he is telling her she needs to find a man.

The manager explains she is a matchmaker, so she should take her own advice and set herself up. What a marvelous idea! Viewers have been saying that for weeks, but finally someone tells her. What does Patti say? Surprisingly, nothing, maybe he hit a nerve. Destin, in a hat he stole from Joe Gorga, introduces our millionaires this week. All I can say is meet Mr. Boring and Mr. More Boring. Southern boy Brandon Broussard is recovering from a break-up and needs true love, and playboy William Stern wants a girl to bring home to mama (isn’t that same story every week?).

Patti meets Brandon and decides she likes him because he is sweet, writes poetry, and is from Louisiana. She also explains he is a good guy because he owns up to his mistakes. Maybe Patti will learn a thing or two from this millionaire?

Millionaire Matchmaker starts this episode off by looking like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills while Patti still desperate to show she has friends is lunching with her fabulous single friends.

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.
