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.
