Can The Millionaire Matchmaker Help Me Find Love?

When it came to my dating life, I wasn’t sure I should listen to Patti Stanger, host of Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and author of the book Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate. Could someone hoisting a gold, ruby-encrusted Cupid’s arrow on her book cover, whose ample bosom was jammed into a white Liberace pantsuit, help me, an outdoorsy New Yorker with an A cup seeking a sweet, humble, non-cologne wearing guy with no roommates?

I was doubtful. But as an early thirties lady swinging and missing on the New York dating scene, I figured, “What have you got to lose, Singles McGonigle?” See if she’s got some news you can use. Keep reading »

Ode To The “Millionaire Matchmaker”

Since it’s Friday, and we’re all ready for a good laugh, and it’s going to be six whole days before we get our “Millionaire Matchmaker” fix, here’s a funny cartoon parody to tide us over until then. In it, Patty takes a look at video clips from some of our favorite millionaires this season, including “sex toy Dave,” that really dumb basketball player, and the dude from Las Vegas with the “Bozo hair.” Now, let’s “meet the penises that are going to do the picking this week,” shall we?

Vaginas Are Fun To Play With, But You Don’t Marry ‘Em!

“Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti brought out big gun Dr. Pat Allen to help a client figure out his commitment issues. Allen advised him that a woman who lets you play isn’t a virtuous woman, so he inevitably gets bored and moves on. Keep reading »

Chivalry Is Not Dead! Plus, It’s Free!

It’s no secret that the women of The Frisky are obsessed with Patti Stanger from “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” But last night I found my devotion to her screed rise to a new level, as I found myself yelling at the screen, “Yes, Patti, YES! Preach sister!” Sure, I disagree that men and women should stick to traditional gender roles and hate her staunch anti-curly hair stance, but Patti’s got gems. I was cheering when she touted just how far a guy can get by showing a little chivalry. “Chivalry is free and it gets the girl.” Indeed, Patti, indeed. You see, my current dating situation — with Chicken Parm, for those taking notes — is kind of lacking in that area, and while he’s practically perfect in every other way, this has become a major stumbling block. Patti and I disagree a little about what kind of chivalry is really necessary and will get the girl (at least this girl) — Patti’s big into door opening and meal ordering, but I don’t care so much about that. After the jump, five chivalrous moves I think Patti and I would co-sign. Chicken Parm better take notes. Keep reading »

Women Are Just As Superficial As Men When It Comes To Finding A Mate

The Millionarie Matchmaker” is on tonight at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo, and we’ve got a clip from the show. It’s pretty easy to believe that men go into the dating game with unrealistic expectations about who they want to get with. In real life, and on this show, guys lust after actresses and models. For the most part, women seem to be more realistic about potential parters’ looks, but we can’t completely generalize on that point because there are exceptions. Case in point: the female millionaire (millionairess?) on tonight’s episode. This lady is seriously delusional and doesn’t seem like a nice person. Plus, she makes fun of our beloved Patti Stanger’s bangs! Will Patti take her on as a client? We hope not — she doesn’t deserve help with her love life. After the jump, the hideous face this superficial woman makes while saying she wouldn’t want to wake up next to a guy who has any sort of belly. Keep reading »

Stylist To The Stars Set To Become One Herself

She has a long list of celebrity clients, a book out, a bitter diva battle with Vogue’s Anna Wintour, and now fashionista Rachel Zoe is about to take on television. The lean, mean stylin’ machine has been criticized for promoting tanorexia [Not to mention anorexia. -- Editor], but now Bravo is going to let you judge her yourself with a serial docu-drama that will watch her every move. “The Rachel Zoe Project” is currently in development at the network and the other characters will include her hubby, Rodger, her two assistants, Taylor and Brad, and some of her celeb clientele.

Romance On TV: Big Brother Plays Matchmaker

Forget the Millionaire Matchmaker! Julie Chen and the rest of the people behind my favorite summertime guilty pleasure, Big Brother, are looking to play Cupid for the first Winter season of the hit reality TV show. For the ninth season, the cast is totally single and ready to mingle — or as Julie puts it, “looking for love”. After a week’s worth of episodes (the show airs a whopping three times a week on CBS, plus nightly on Big Brother: After Dark on Showtime), I really think the house guests are really only looking to hook-up and fight. The cast is paired up in teams of two based on their romantic compatibility, but that has already made for some trouble. Partners Adam and Sheila despise each other; a real couple outside the house, Jen and Ryan, were paired up with other partners that were apparently more compatible; and a couple that recently broke up in real life were reunited as partners inside the Big Brother house to neither of their pleasure. But there has been some “showmancing”, much to the producers’ relief. Via the live feeds available on CBS.com, Jen and Ryan have been overheard gettin’ down and dirty in the bathroom, while partners Nat and Matt (aww, cute!) indulged in a little midnight canoodling. We can’t wait to see what happens next! [CBS: Big Brother 9] Keep reading »
