On my way to meet Patti Stanger, third-generation matchmaker and crazy-successful businesswoman, I imagined that she might know of a tattooed, emo millionaire who is just perfect for me. That, of course, didn’t happen. But she did greet me with, “I love The Frisky! I get Google alerts!” Overall, Patti was immaculate, tiny, and well-spoken. Like a Jewish mother, she offered up the sushi on her plate, saying, “Try one. Don’t worry; there are no calories in them!” One thing was exceptionally clear from our chat—home girl is crazy busy these days. She not only stars in but also executive-produces her Bravo show, “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” which begins its third season on January 19. She is still running her now decade-old matchmaking service, Millionaire’s Club, and recently wrote a bestselling book, Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate, out in paperback on December 29. Plus, she has a radio show on XM Pink 24 called “PS I Love You,” every Thursday at 7 p.m. (EST), and has launched her own online dating site, PsXoXo.com.
