Watch What Happens Live

Patti STanger
Is Patti Stanger having a nervous breakdown? Or maybe she is just totally nuts! Or maybe all the plastic surgery has been effecting her brain…

After making several homophobic comments and accusing gay men of being incapable of monogamy on Watch What Happens Live that resulted in a public apology and a chastising statement from Bravo, Patti did it again on The Joy Behar Show! Seriously!

This time the Millionaire Matchmaker (whose client base is probably invisible at this point!) insists, “Gays don’t have a lot of testosterone.”

“I’m talking about that they use both sides of their brain. Straight men only use one side,” Patti, the bio-geneticist continued, explaining how the gay brain works to Joy Behar. “Gay men are very bright, very handsome … they put themselves better together,” Patti asserts. “They dress good, they decorate, they clean, they cook.” Is that maybe a compliment? I’m not sure – I need someone to analyze how the Stanger brain works! Or, actually… maybe not!

Patti offered no excuse or apology for her behavior, nor has Bravo released a statement about this latest incident, but a friend of Patti’s told The Huffington Post, “She finally understands what she has done and instead of continuing to dig herself deeper [into] trouble, she has decided to flee to her family.”

“She’s going to hide out for a while but has learned her lesson,” according to the friend. “From now on she is going to try and be much more careful about what she says.” Well, it may be too late now, Patti!

Are Patti’s comments totally out of line or was she just trying to be funny? Should Patti’s show be canceled after all her insensitive comments?

In light of all the real-time drama of the past few days, I felt very sad watching last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Teresa, Kathy, The Joes, and Melissa all made-up and seemed to be working positively towards the future, but current drama lets us know it doesn’t last!

These women have sold their integrity and self-respect, and in the process destroyed their families and friendships for a small piece of fame and little bit of extra money. I hope it was worth it. And when no one remembers who they are, except for the fleeting memories of how they once appeared on our TV screens to embarrass themselves for amusement and some designer shoes; I hope the little bit of extra money they earned is at least enough to pay for their kids’ therapy. Lord knows, they’ll need it!

Full disclosure: I don’t believe Teresa set Melissa up. 1) I don’t believe she’s capable of masterminding something that involved. Or keeping it a secret long enough for it to pan out. 2) She seems to really love her brother. I do believe she wants a relationship with him at all costs. As to what happened, I suppose maybe time will tell, and maybe not.

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?

The first Bethenny-less season of The Real Housewives of New York City finally came sputtering to an end- coasting on flimsy hopes and raw inertia ‘til the bitter, dusty end with Andy Cohen selling what’s left of it for scraps. It was a season of false promises, false reconciliations, and of course – false friendships, but never (wink,wink) false dramas. There were feuds, middle eastern nightmares, thugs in cocktail dresses, dueling sweet sixteens and dueling (un)fabulous forty-year-olds (and one pinot-sodden fifty-year-old), musical ineptitude galore, and Jill Zarin remaining the same old Jill Zarin – filled with a plethora of advice, snarkitude, and red-headed fury; proving that she alone will drive this jalopy ‘til it drives no more. Go, Jill, Go!

The Season Finale begins with The Countess speaking (“Chic, C’est La Vie! Si bon! Si bon!”) to her music producer – naturally they are discussing what a runaway success her song Chic, C’est La Vie will become. Chris surprises LuAnn with a friend of his, who just happened to stop by – a friend who just happens to be Natalie King Cole.

On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s a very special holiday – Trashymas! I’m sure everyone got many, many lumps of coal. Jacqueline got one in the form of Ashely, Teresa received one in the form of Kim G, Melissa and Kathy received one in the form of Teresa, and The Caroline – well, she got diamonds. Lucky girl.

At the Giudices, they are decorating the hugest Christmas tree ever, but sadly it’s not made of money. Teresa wants us to know that because of the bankruptcy they only got a tree decorated in semi-precious metal and not the one made entirely of gold. D’ya hear that bankruptcy judge – they’re cutting back. If cutting back means driving a Benz and wearing Louboutins then I can only hope to cut back some day! Teresa also wants us to know that all she wants for Christmas is for Melissa’s bad energy to go away. ‘Cause, it gives her a headache.

Melissa is not happy because she just wants an authentic smelling tree for Christmas AND Jesus’ Birthday (which are NOT one and the same, apparently) as she is throwing Jesus like the best birthday party ever. Joey and Melissa discuss their concerns about Jr. Mafia not mixing well with others at their party since he is like totally responsible for the Christening incident. Uh huh. Joey Giudice totally caused the entire thing. Joey G-to-the-Orga and Teresa and Melissa and her sisters had nothing to do with it. Nothing. At. All. Uh huh. We learn Melissa’s hoping to be cast next season sister, Lyssa claims Joe G-to-the-Iudice’s mother punched her in the face at said Christening. Is that where Joe gets it from? Melissa makes it clear NOTHING is going to ruin Jesus’ party!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey they celebrated Halloween with some serious drama and some serious fashion. The annual Posche Trashion show is back with Teresa, Jacqueline, and Melissa as models, Caroline puts her foot down on family drama, Kathy tries an unsuccessful Gorga mediation. Oh and The Kims re-emerge!

The show started on a happy note with Teresa and her Made For TV family, Caroline and Jacqueline getting together with their kids to carve Jack-o-lanterns with Danielle’s face on them. Scary! Naturally they begin talking about the Christening Day Masacre, and all the kids are pushed aside somewhere so the ladies can dish. While Teresa is telling the story of how push came to shove came to insanity, Caroline is standing there, arms crossed, giving the hairy eyeball and reminding Teresa that it’s her family, and family’s first – so she better fix things, because after all, the Posche Fashion Show is happening. Frankly, I’m shocked anyone would invite Teresa after last years “incidents,” but hey, The Kims love them some dramz! Tersea puts Caroline in her place by declaring she doesn’t need any advice from mommy dearest, because she is the matriarch of her family and knows just how to manipulate handle them.

It seems Jill Zarin has yet to find a hobby after all. According to a new report, the Real Housewives of New York City star channeled her inner Al Gore last week following her appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.

The NY Post is reporting Jill demanded a recount after a poll from the show had her losing to her costar Ramona Singer in a landslide. The question of the poll was whose side were viewers on when it came to the two ladies. Andy Cohen read the results at the end of the show with 78% of the votes going to Team Ramona, and the remaining 22% in favor of Team Jill.

Sources tell the Post Jill demanded a recount immediately following the show. The renewed Jill reportedly went as far as to tell Bravo she would get her lawyer to “audit” the polling numbers. Yikes.

Jill denies calling her lawyer but admits she was surprised to have received so little votes, you know, being that she’s so well liked by the fans and all. “They had a problem,” Jill tells the Post. “My initial reaction was surprise, based on my own fans and how they were telling me they supported me. That night, we said, ‘We don’t think these numbers are right.’ ” Wowzers.

Whatever the case, there was a recount as Andy admitted on Sunday night there was an error with the poll results. The final tally? Ramona still came out on top with 59% of the votes. No word yet on whether Jill would like another recount.

Oh yeah, Jill asked her followers on twitter to vote for her during the live show while Ramona didn’t.

In other Jill news, her face is making headlines today after she walked the red carpet this weekend for the annual TV Land Awards. After debuting what looks to be a new face, many media outlets are speculating she went under the knife. We put together the above before and after photo which you can click on to make bigger.

In a poll by PopEater, over 95% of those polled believe she went under the knife. Jill however denies such a thing tweeting earlier today, “How funny is this? 95% [of PopEater users] think I had surgery. Should I be flattered they think I look better? Ask Dr. Pat Wexler. She is my doctor.” We’ll let you be the judge with more photos of Jill below.

UPDATE: Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Balbody.com tells Reality Tea, “It appears that Jill Zarin has had a nose job or Rhinoplasty to narrow and lift the tip of her nose.” Dr. Salzhauer adds that Jill’s smooth forehead is most likely the result of Botox injections. “She most likely has used dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to smooth out her “laugh lines” and give more volume to her cheeks.”
