Patti Stanger


Last night, Millionaire Matchmaker went out with a bang. Dare I say, the first ever Millionaire Matchmaker reunion was actually entertaining especially compared to the lackluster season that many of you readers have agreed is not worth tuning into. But hey, last night’s second part of the reunion was definitely worth a watch especially when we got to see past clients let it rip on the beloved Patti Stanger.

Andy Cohen began asking Patti some boring viewer-submitted questions. The most interesting question was if Patti would date a redhead. With all the gay and Jewish bashing, I totally forgot about Patti’s distaste for the redhead community. Then, Andy reminds me that she also does not like curly hair either. What the heck, Patti! I take the curly hair one very personally. But Patti does what she does best explaining she did not mean it like that — yea, right. She says the millionaires do not like red, curly hair people. I think Bravo needs to set up an Equal Opportunity program for the crew at Millionaire Matchmaker.

Reunited and it feels so….. Hot! Part one of the first ever (and probably last ever) Millionaire Matchmaker reunion aired last night, and not only did the beloved Andy Cohen put Patti in the hot seat, but he reunited some of Patti’s most memorable clients from the past five seasons. All the clients and Patti were looking hot, hot, hot! The heat continued as Andy dived into the whole WWHL fiasco.

In case you forgot, Patti Stanger said some unfortunate comments on her appearance earlier this year on Andy’s late-night show. She claimed gays cannot commit, and Jewish men lie. Well, doesn’t she realize her boss is both of those? In order to save her job, Patti backpedals claiming she could not sleep for days (or eat?) after she offended so many people. She does major damage control telling Andy it was her idea to even set up gays on TV — no credit to Andy Cohen? Andy, not quick to let off the heat, calls her out saying she makes generalizations a.k.a. stereotypes! Let’s not sugar coat it, but Patti continues on her self-reflection stating she wants to soften up her image. Good luck with that.

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!
