Patti Stanger


For the first time ever, Bravo will host a Millionaire Matchmaker reunion special!

The network promises past clients (from all five seasons) will return to dish on relationships and someone will have a special surprise. The reunion will be a two part special with part I airing tonight at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT and part II airing next Tuesday, December 6th At 9 pm ET/PT.

The press release states “Andy Cohen sits down with Patti for the first-ever reunion special. Visited by some of Patti’s most memorable clients, including Hello Kitty fanatic Robin Kassner, who offered to buy her date a Maserati; Stacy Kessler, who Patti accused of having a mid-life crisis; Zagros Bigvand, who didn’t follow Patti’s rule of “no sex before monogamy;” retired NFL star turned ESPN-commentator Marcellus Wiley, “Million Dollar Listing” star Madison Hildebrand, and more.”

A bit surprising because ratings for the show have taken a dip this year, but by having on the craziest guests from all five seasons, it will definitely make for a must-see reunion!

The reunion part I airs tonight (9/8c). A preview clip featuring the infamous Shauna Raisch is below!

It’s here! The last episode of Millionaire Matchmaker ever! Well, at least for this year. It is still undecided what the future of Millionaire Matchmaker will be, but if last night’s episode is the last match we will see by the Millionaire’s Club, I have definitely been left satisfied. Tables turn as Patti Stanger is the client this week — Does that mean she is a millionaire?

Destin (not Devin — my apologies) and Rachel plan a one-on-one meeting with their client Patti. Patti wants her friends to come along so they can be her spies to help pick her match. It is quite silly to watch Rachel and Destin ask Patti silly questions about what she looks for in a guy. I think we all know Patti just looks for a guy who will look at her.

Patti explains she doesn’t care about money because all she has is money — I was waiting for her to rip out her “I’m Rich, B*tch” shirt. I think Nene Leakes would be proud. She also wants a guy who is good in bed — is Destin supposed to hold try-outs?

For all the Millionaire Matchmaker lovers or haters out there, last night we experienced the second to last episode of the season or the series? That is the question! We begin by seeing Patti Stanger in her element doing a comedy show! Patti continues to embarrass the public by calling out an awkward boy and girl on stage to do a pretend date. This date was as bad as every other date Patti conducts.

Chippendale dancers and football players, oh my! This is my episode. For the first time in Millionaire Matchmaker history, Patti is setting up a millionaire who I have actually heard of! Mr. ESPN Marcellus Wiley – I knew all my boyfriends had a reason for making me watch ESPN, it prepared me for tonight’s episode of MM. He is just as charming as usual and makes me ask the question — How does this guy have a problem finding a girl?

In a new interview Phaedra Parks talks about how the woman she plays on TV is an exaggeration of who she really is; claiming the producers encourage the ladies to play a part! Shockingly, Phaedra admits that the editors manipulate how the characters appear on screen!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, famous for her “Everybody knows…” statements and sassy commentary, reveals that while there is a part of her personality that is “silly and Southern-belle-esque” the producers “prefer” to show that side over her serious side. Phaedra wisely takes it with a grain of salt, explaining: “At the end of the day, I hope when people watch the show, they realize it’s for entertainment.”

“If you don’t have editing rights, you can say a lot of different things and once it’s on the editing table, it might look like something else,” she informs us. ”That’s part of reality TV. Everything on reality TV isn’t as real as you think it is.” Phaedra is well aware that she can act like the normal, sophisticated, professional woman she is almost all the time, but the minute she resorts to cattiness the producers will “air the dopey or catty quote.”

“I try to live without regrets,” she says of participating in the show. Adding she would not do anything differently from last season because the producers chose how each of the women are portrayed. “It doesn’t matter how careful you are. Whatever your character is, is what they make it to be,” she quips. “It’s not who I am but who the producers think I am.” Wow! Is someone trying to get their contract terminated!?

“For people who know me, they understand that. We each have distinct characters on the show. No one is one dimensional. Characters have to be consistent to the part they’re playing.”

Interestingly, Bravo recently released a comment chastising Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger for attempting to pitch a new reality show where all the characters were required to “act” a certain way for the story, saying they don’t produce shows with “stipulations” about how the participants behave!

Phaedra does not feel the show has changed her or affected her professional standing. “I still have the same friends. I am still doing the same things I was doing prior to ‘Housewives.’ ” So is D-wrong Eubanks her friend in real-life or a made for TV acquaintance?

Commenting about how appearing on TV as the ditzy Southern Belle may affect her legal career, Phaedra isn’t worried! “My reputation speaks for itself,” she declares. “The TV show hasn’t changed people’s thoughts about me. It makes me more recognizable.”

As for how the show merges her real-life with the show, Phaedra reveals she truly is friends with co-stars Kandi Burruss and Sheree Whitfield. “We speak quite a bit,” she says of Kandi. “I knew her prior to the show but this has afforded us more time to hang out with each other. I consider her part of my close circle of friends.”

Speaking about Sheree’s on-going custody and child support issues with ex-husband Bob Whitfield, Phaedra was more than happy to help! “Sheree and I have become close friends as well. Any time a friend comes for legal advice, I’ll do anything I can.” Phaedra was also a guest at co-star and friend Kim Zolciak’s 11-11-11 nuptials. A TwitPic of Phaedra, Kandi, and Patti attending the wedding is below!

There is one person Phaedra definitely does not share an off-screen relationship with – NeNe Leakes! “Obviously, we take a very long trip to Africa,” she snips.

As for her interest in the funeral business Phaedra assures us it’s very real! She has an interest in learning “all aspects” of the business and has even enrolled in part-time mortuary classes!

Moving on, tonight is an all-new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta! In the second episode of the season titled “Surprisingly Rich”, NeNe, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi take a trip to Miami after NeNe’s feud with Sheree. How they roped Kandi into that trip I’ll never understand! Also, Phaedra begins to seriously consider the funeral business and someone throws her a surprise birthday party!

The new episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

On Watch What Happens Live, the guest is none other than NeNe who I am sure will have plenty of comments about everyone and everything – including Kim’s wedding!

THOUGHTS ON PHAEDRA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE HER STATEMENTS ABOUT BRAVO MANIPULATING HOW THE WOMEN ARE PORTRAYED OR IS SHE BLAMING EDITING?


11/11/11…if you’re Kim Zolciak you probably wished for a fairy tale wedding, which is exactly what the Real Housewives of Atlanta star got yesterday when she married Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann at a lavish ceremony in Atlanta.  Who was on hand to help her celebrate? A slew of Bravolebrities and a famous blogger (no, no one from here at RT unfortunately :)).

While there has been no confirmation yet regarding the attendance of her fellow cast mates, one could place bets that a few of the RHOA ladies were there to throw rice and raise a toast. Kim’s once wig-tugging friend Sheree Whitfield, her producer rainmaker songwriter pal Kandi Burruss who sort of helped her a little with her “Tardy for the Party” hit and fellow over-the-top soiree throwing Phaedra Parks were likely on hand to watch Kim and Kroy’s nuptials.

It’s more questionable that Cynthia Bailey received an invitation given the ladies tense friendship, but stranger things have happened. As for NeNe Leakes, Kim’s former BFF, it’s safe to say she would probably rather get stuck in an elevator with Star Jones and LaToya Jackson than watch her nemesis walk down the aisle.

Also on hand from Bravo was everyone’s favorite (ahem) matchmaker Patti Stanger, who tweeted, “Hanging in ATL @doubletree with my bestie Jackie from @life_and_style as we prepare for @Kimzolciak’s wedding…we are so excited! X0” Perhaps she was able to drum up some new “clients” at the reception. She later updated her Twitter to say, “No phones allowed at @Kimzolciak’s wedding, so no tweeting/photos, I will give you the fun facts after. X0.”

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was also Twittering from the ATL about the big event, saying, “@Kimzolciak So happy to be here to celebrate your special day with you! Much love, happiness, peace and health!!! xoxo ” Perhaps my invitation got lost in the mail?

Even celebrity event planner Colin Cowie took to Twitterverse about his role in the whole to-do. He stated, “Stunning bride, handsome groom — a super glam and chic affair!” Wait, what? D-wight Eubanks wasn’t the wedding planner? For shame!

Not one to be out-tweeted on her own wedding day, Kim gave a shout out to the bakery that made the couple’s cake. She exclaimed, “Omg thank you Highland Bakery for my amazing wedding cake! Absolutely breathtaking I cried when I saw it! It is exactly what I wanted!!!” I hope that crying didn’t mess up her make-up!

Without a doubt, Kim’s two daughters from her first marriage — thirteen-year-old Brielle and nine-year-old Ariana — were a huge part of Kim’s big day. Kim also has a baby boy with her new groom, Kroy Jagger, or K.J. as his infant friends call him.

Kim herself was on cloud nine on her wedding day, telling Life & Style, “This has been the happiest day of my life. It’s been perfect. It’s been a dream come true.” Of her brand new hubby, she gushes, “He makes me a better person. I love everything about him.” Awww…. Best wishes to the happy couple!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S NUPTIALS? WHO OF HER CASTMATES DO YOU THINK WERE IN ATTENDANCE?

Is it me or is this season of Millionaire Matchmaker really dragging on? No pun intended, but between Mr. Drag Queen himself and Mr. Drag Personality, Patti had her hands full last night with her two millionaires. Surely this was filmed months before Patti’s controversy statements about gay men.

Patti is full of famous friends this season and tonight she meets with gossip king Perez Hilton who must be getting desperate for gossip since he now spends his time interviewing Patti Stanger and hosting the Bad Girl’s Club Reunion. Yet, he would be a fabulous millionaire (who actually has money) that Patti should set up!

On to the millionaires — Rachel introduces her client Jason Bross who is a shy businessman that has a career in healthy food on the go. He is always accused of being gay, but he insists he isn’t (thou protesteth too much?). Patti explains he needs a personality and that he is boring — which makes me ponder does Patti ever have entertaining clients? And to prove me wrong, Patti gives us the first ever drag queen millionaire!

Just when I hoped Patti Stanger was somewhat remorseful for her scathing and incredibly rude comments, she’s at it again!

The Millionaire Matchmaker has come out of hiding to pitch a new reality show and in the process insult some of her Bravo colleagues! According to the New York Post, the incredibly unlikable and bad for TV, Patti participated in a conference call with a “group of LA-based designers” she was soliciting for “Glamazons,” a new reality show Stanger is developing. No word yet if friend and fellow fame junkie Jill Zarin was included in that group!

During the course of the call, a source claims Patti excoriated real-life glamazon, Rachel Zoe, and accused her of being “near bankrupt” as a result of an “addiction” to vintage couture! Hey, I can relate! Even worse, she claimed Rachel was forced to sell her apartment and “do a reality show” because of her addiction! Whoa! Slanderous! Apparently Patti had no proof to back any of this up, but hey – irrelevant details! A rep for Rachel, of course, denied the assignations calling them “laughable.”

Patti then went after Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes! Using NeNe to serve as a warning to her budding reality minions, Patti demanded that they better refrain from becoming “divas” if they want to keep their jobs. She used the sweet-natured Housewife’s attitude to illustrate her point, snapping: “NeNe is about to be cut. With her diva attitude, you watch, she’s going to get cut.”

Patti also demanded people on her show better play nice or else! “You’re all going to pretend like you’re friends, and you’re going to go out every night or you’ll be fired — you’re all replaceable,” she allegedly commanded!

Well, of course now that this story is making headlines everyone is doing damage control! Speaking through her over-worked rep, Patti refuted the story as exaggerated. “Oh, come on. I have the utmost respect for Bravo and all my colleagues there,” she told the Post. “I was obviously misunderstood.”

As for Bravo they retaliated with the following statement: “Bravo does not produce shows with those kinds of stipulations and therefore would never be green-lit on our network. And there is zero truth to those comments about Rachel Zoe and NeNe Leakes.”

DO YOU BELIEVE PATTI MADE THOSE STATEMENTS? DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO HER COMMENTS? WOULD YOU WATCH HER NEW SHOW? HOW MANY DAYS UNTIL HER CONTRACT WITH BRAVO IS CANCELLED?


On last night’s episode of Millionaire Matchmaker I was all ready for some crazy drama at the hands of hot, young, party-boy, commitment-phobe Sylar but instead things were very mature and genuine. Was I watching the right show? Thankfully I had Patti’s abrasive, cray-cray to remind me that I was definitely in the right place! Patti also set up a nerd who just can’t vacate the friend zone, thus getting him a little help from friend, Jenny McCarthy!

This week, Patti‘s clients are two twenty-somethings. One is nerdy internet start-up CEO Bill Clerico, who has the unfortunate disposition of being a redhead. Patti informs us “no one wants to date redheads.” Even Prince Harry? Bill is the founder of WEPAY and according to Patti, if Mark Zuckerberg can get a girl, Bill can — he’s way hotter. Hot even for a ginger. However, Bill isn’t just a ging — he’s also short, nerdy and a work-a-holic! Uh-oh! Patti wants to de-nerd him and make him see a girl as his priority instead of work.
