Patti Stanger

Patti Stanger, Bravo’s resident crude loud mouth Millionaire Matchmaker is back at it and this time around, no celebrity is safe!

The 49-year-old matchmaker, who finally got engaged last year to beau Andy Friedman after 5 long years of dating, sat down for a video interview with Popeater during which she discussed filming the 3rd season of her hit show in NYC, her wedding plans and sounds off on some headline making celebrities.

When asked what was one of the biggest challenges she faced since moving her show from Los Angeles to New York, Patti doesn’t mince her words, answering: “Finding hot girls in New York city.”

On how regular women can go about snagging their millionaires – “Well if you want to get a millionaire, you got to hit a steak house… Go where the men are. If they are playing golf, go there. If they are playing tennis, go there.

On her upcoming wedding plans – “No we haven’t planned one yet, Bravo’s kept me on a tight leash. She later added that “there is no rush,” and that she has no plans to have any children. She is however open to “adopting someday.”

Patti also dishes up some love advice for some celebrities -

On Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston – “That’s the ridiculous thing, he has no interest in her. He had a baby out of wedlock, he’s selling her down the river and she’s selling herself down the river. This is a shotgun wedding at most and they’re never getting married.

On Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher – “I love this couple. I knew the minute like she made a decision to get married like after twenty one, that girl would find true love. And she found an athlete, and he’s very wealthy in Canada besides playing hockey. She’s marrying into a good family. I’m happy for her! A baby in 2 years.”

On Jessica Simpson and new ex-NFL player beau Eric Johnson – “Umm he has no money, no job. Seriously what are we thinking here? He basically is 30-years-old, making her do cupping, trying herbs. This is a creepy deepy guy.”

When asked which other celebs she would like to sound off on, Patti revealed she would like to help Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson find love, then going on to refer to them as the “serial daters” and “the crazy pants.” Patti would also like to put Tiger Woods and Jesse James in another group to help them. Helping Mel Gibson is also not off limits, that is if he decides to become a jew according to Patti.

Good to see Patti is still the same ol Patti. The 3rd season of the Millionaire Matchmaker continues to film in NYC. Bravo has yet to announce the premiere date.

TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PATTI’S COMMENTS?

Good news for Millionaire Matchmaker and Real Housewives of New Jersey fans, as the NYPost is reporting Caroline Manzo’s sons will appear on the upcoming new season of the hit dating show.

According to the NYPost, Chris and Law-School Hotty Albie Manzo have enlisted the help of Patti Stanger to help them find their matches. And what are the boys looking for in a mate? A source tells the Post they are interested in “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls.”

Chris (pictured left) currently works at the family-owned Brownstone in Paterson, NJ, while Albie, 23, attends law school. While the kids are not millionaires, not yet at least, the Post reports Caroline and Patti are old friends from Jersey. Should be a fun episode to watch.

The 4th season of Millionaire Matchmaker is currently being filmed in NYC.

In a new interview, Bethenny Frankel, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, speaks out on her castmates, touches on her feud with Jill Zarin, and also discusses being slammed by Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger. She’s getting married today by the way.

Excerpts from Bethenny’s interview with Zap2it below -

Jill really took that “get a hobby” voice message to heart. What do you think about her keeping it that long and the fact she plays it for people?
I know. That to me is shocking. Yeah, at a certain level, I have trust in people. So, I was just completely shocked. The thing is I say it got disproportionate to what it originally was. It escalated. I meant everything I said on that message. She didn’t play the entire message. I’m not sure why she didn’t want everyone to hear the whole message. I meant everything I said, but the playing for other people is like somebody opening up your journal. I didn’t blast it out to 20 people.

Knowing how much she cares about that line, have you apologized at least for that part of the message or are you going to?

You know what I say on marriages and relationships? It’s never about what it’s about. Something small happens and there’s something much more massive underneath it. Sometimes the aftershock is worse than the original earthquake kind of thing. I think that what happened after became so much more enormous, as you’ll see throughout the season, that I was reaching out. To get to the place where I am now, where it’s become a much different thing. Other things were said. Other things were done. It really became a whole other issue.

Kelly recently posed for Playboy. Would you ever pose for Playboy?
At this point in my life, not even because I’m pregnant, that would not be a good business decision for me. With business, it’s like a thread. Everything needs to adhere to that line. There would be no reason, no upside to posing for Playboy for me. It would not be good for my brand. I think for somebody like a Heidi Montag, where she was sort of on her way down, I think that was a good thing to do. It depends on what your endgame is. Posing nude for PETA, that was for charity and not really about business, but it wouldn’t hurt my brand. I just don’t think that posing for Playboy has anything to do with anything that I am.

Last season, you had a problem with Ramona’s statement that Jill likes to adopt the underdog and she was referring to you. Do you see some truth to that statement now?
It happens with girlfriends all the time. When you’re down and out, people rally around you. It’s easy for you to be the one that’s the needy one. When you’re not the underdog anymore, things shift. Yeah, I do think there was something to what Ramona said. I didn’t see it at the time or I didn’t choose to see it, but I can understand why she said that. Absolutely.

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger

Bravo has announced its renewal of The Millionaire Matchmaker for a fourth season!

Even better, Patti Stanger will be moving her company to New York City, where she will be filming the fourth season. The show has proved to be a hit for Bravo as the ratings for the third season, currently airing on Bravo, have been the highest ever for the series.

The fourth season will reportedly feature Patti planning her own wedding to fiance Andy Friedman, all while attempting to run her business in NYC.  The first three seasons were filmed in Los Angeles.

Patti Stanger and Bethenny Frankel

The feud between the Real Housewives of New York City stars, Jill Zarin vs Bethenny Frankel feud just got a little more interesting.

Jill’s new pal and host of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger, took to her twitter page to bash Bethenny on behalf of Jill (Are these ladies in elementary high school?).

“My BFF Jill Zarin is getting the shaft on NYC Housewives bc of a dark haired loser! Why is everyone on Team Bethany (sic)? Any cow can give birth,” Stanger recently posted.

The question is why the hatred for Bethenny? Well, the NYDailyNews believes that Patti’s hostility stems from when Bethenny allegedly snubbed her at the season two premiere party of “Real Housewives” last year. Apparently Patti is still holding a grudge.

“Bethenny was seen as the most popular of the housewives then, and apparently she didn’t feel like she needed to give Patti the time of day,” a source close to the show says. On the other hand, Patti and Jill have become good friends in the recent years.

Bethenny has yet to respond to Patti’s diss.

OC Housewives' Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi

Bravo held their 2010 Upfront Party at theSkylight Studio this week in NYC, and all of our favorite Housewives as well as other Bravolebrities were sure to be in attendance.

The upfront party is when Bravo announces what is to come during their next season of television.

OK magazine was there and was able to report some behind the scenes moments. Representing the Real Housewives of Orange County were Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi, who did not seem phased by their new competitionthe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The OC ladies joked that they did hear the Beverly Hills Housewives all have their own private jets.

The Real Housewives of NYC’s Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord hit the red carpet together during which Jill would not reveal whether or not she and Bethenny will reconcile, simply saying “watch the show.”

Kelly Bensimon also hit the red carpet with LuAnn De Lesseps, and when asked how she thinks Bethenny will be as a mom, she replied, “I can’t really speak to that. I’m sorry.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta were the only housewives franchise to all walk the red carpet together. The Atlanta ladies are reportedly getting along better these days.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey were also in attendance. Danielle Staub walked the red carpet by herself, while the four remaining housewives stayed together.

Also below are photos of Bravo stars from the Millionare Matchmaker, Flipping Out, Top Chef, Kell On Earth, and Shear Genius.

The 3rd season of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker premiered last week and it did not disappoint as Patti Stanger was as blunt, feisty and sharp tongued as always.

According to Bravo, the show averaged 1.10 million viewers, which is the highest rated premier for the show and also a 37% increase from the second season’s premier episode.

In a new interview with People, Patti, 48, opens up about her new engagement, what to expect in this 3rd season and also dishes out some love advice for celebrities such as Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.

Give us a rundown on what to expect this season.
There are a lot more practical tips and information that everyone can use. We don’t just want to be reality TV that’s funny [and] then you turn us off. We don’t want to be Jersey Shore. Everyone is single right now. You can be 18 or 80 and you can be single, and nobody’s teaching anyone how to maneuver the waters online [or] with text messaging. … The other thing is we pumped up the volume on the gay dating. It was a really huge success story for us. Also, [Jason Davis] Gummi Bear is on. I know he just went to rehab and I had a real problem with him. He wouldn’t listen to me. He was crazy and off the wall — and I tried to get him to quit smoking. I call him Huggy Bear.

What’s the biggest difference between millionaires and the millionairesses you work with?
There’s the angry guy who’s made all this money and still can’t get the cheerleader he didn’t get in high school. But when it comes to women, they wake up at 40, their eggs are dried up and they’re like, “What the eff?” And then they start to [share] all their frustration and resentment — and I don’t have time for it because I’ve got to work. They’re high maintenance. Like, Tiger Woods, a perfect example — if he joined my service he would never want any of his exes or his wife to know his dirty laundry even if he was getting a divorce. Women want everyone to know they’ve been wronged.

You recently got engaged. How’s everything going with your fiancé, Andy Friedman?
He’s my best friend. We’re not tabloid whores. You don’t see us on the red carpet. We go to the mall. We have family that live in Westlake Village — which is like suburbia. We eat ice cream on the weekends and go see Avatar. I know [that] I live in a millionaire world by day, but [at] night, I’m Stepford. I cook. It’s kind of weird because I’m not what you think I am. If I were not a matchmaker, I’d be a chef.

Let’s talk about celebs. What tips do you have for Jessica Simpson in terms of finding love this year?
I really love Jessica. I wish she had met Nick Lachey after 30 — and I think they would have lasted. I think they met way too young and had too much too soon. [I wish] Jessica would take her time and really qualify people instead of jumping into relationships so quickly. She’s got to stop it. You know the way she does a business deal — where her father assesses all the situations before he signs his name on the dotted line? She needs to do the same thing with men — and not give her heart away so quick. She’s misunderstood.

And, finally, what about John Mayer?
John Mayer — he needs to own up to his mistakes because karma’s a bitch, baby. Let me tell you something. He’ll be one of those 45-year-old men still searching for the perfect girl and abusing and using. Then one day, the pee-pee’s going to go limp and Cialis and Viagra ain’t going to help him. I’d put him into singles boot camp right next to Jennifer Aniston. The two of them, I’d like to put into boot camp.

She’s baaack! The 3rd season of Bravo’s hit show – The Millionaire Matchmaker is set to premier tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Returning this season is the matchmaker herself Patti Stanger, along with Vice President of Matching, Chelsea Autumn and her Chief Operating Officer, Destin Pfaff. Also back is Destin’s fiancée, Rachel, as the first time parents head into season three.

This season will focus on Patti’s matchmaking of course but it will also showcase Patti’s recent engagement, as well as the return of some of Patti’s most memorable clients such as Shauna Raisch from season 2. Patti will also take on more gay clients this season.

More about the show’s 3rd season is below -

Bravo and Patti Stanger are back together and going strong for a third season of the hit docu-series The Millionaire Matchmaker, premiering Tuesday, January 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Stanger will stop at nothing to build her matchmaking empire – her business is flourishing, she has a successful book under her belt and is now hosting her own radio advice show. But after years of helping others find love, Stanger herself finally seals the deal. She and her longtime love, Andy Friedman, are engaged at last.

In the third season, Stanger once again takes on a selection of millionairesses and gay clients. Plus, millionaires past will come back to haunt Stanger, notably Shauna Raisch who caused a stir last season due to a very tense and uncomfortable exchange with the matchmaker. But Stanger remains unfazed by it all, whipping her millionaires into shape even with a full plate of her own as she makes plans for her upcoming nuptials.

Next to Big Brother, Millionaire Matchmaker is probably my 2nd favorite reality show. I love Patti’s honesty and abrasiveness. The clueless millionaires and sometimes desperate gold diggers women on the show makes it all the more entertaining.
