One afternoon this week, I was putzing around on Twitter, procrastinating on work, when a tweet from Patti Stanger, the star of “Millionaire Matchmaker,” caught my eye. “Part of acting like a lady involves allowing him to be a gentleman,” she tweeted.

Hmmm, I thought. That’s just good advice. Then I thought about it for a second. Wait. What does that even mean? It sounds like a riddle. The more I thought about it, the less it made sense and the more it seemed to be zen koan-like thought farts. 

Patti Stanger’s Twitter feed is filled with these thought farts. Like her Bravo show  ”Millionaire Matchmaker,” she offers a melange of useful observations on dating and relationships, mixed with some truly reactionary, fucked-up advice that seeks to corral both men and women into normative gender role behavior. (In fact, we’ve debunked some of this fucked up-edness before.) Let me be clear: if people want to choose that normative gender role behavior himself or herself, that’s great. I choose it a lot of the time myself, in fact. But it’s not ethical to teach people their most successful strategy for finding love is to squeeze yourself into a box and follow the sexist script. 

After the jump, let’s debunk some of Patti Stanger’s advice over Twitter … the good, the bad, and the truly WTF. Keep reading »

“If I could put [Marc Jacobs], and oh my God, let me think for a second. Tom Ford. That’s a fit. Is Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs a fit? ‘Cause they both have those muscles and ripped bodies. And they both look straight. I’d date ‘em. They’re both gorgeous. And I didn’t mean that as a generalization, and don’t you gay people get all snippy with me. I meant that as a compliment!”

–Sad circus clown Patti Stanger is totally that annoying friend that assumes that all gay people she knows are attracted to each other. Here she is running her mouth at the Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show trying to set up Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, because you know, they’re both in fashion, and gay, so obviously they should date. GAH. [NYMag]

Patti Stanger

Patti Stanger did not make many friends this week when she argued that gay men aren’t into monogamous relationships. “There is no curbing the gay,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live” in front of Andy Cohen looking like he just got run over by an angry real housewife. “I’ve tried to curb you people and you just don’t … I’ve decided to throw in the towel and say ‘do what you want,’” Patti continued. Cue Bravo reeling to distance themselves from Patti’s words, since gay men are one of their primary audiences.

Hearing Patti say this, I thought, “Wow. That just isn’t true. I can name 10 gay couples in my social orbit who have been together for eons, I assume monogamously.” Not to mention the fact that for gay marriage to be the kind of issue that it is, some gay men have to want it. Then today I saw a Census statistic that proves Patti isn’t right about “you people.” Apparently, not only has the number of same-sex couples jumped 80 percent since 2000 (an indication that people are increasingly willing to declare their sexual orientation the Census), but 1 in 5 gay couples are married. Which is a high percentage considering that it’s only legal in seven states. In those seven states, 42 percent of same-sex couples have gotten married—a higher rate than straight couples. I only wish this study had separated out stats for gay and lesbian couples so I could really stick it to Patti with the numbers. [Washington Post]

Now, for the record, I love Patti Stanger. I think she is brilliant and tells it like it is. But she does have a habit of making an “iron-clad” law out of preferences she has noticed. For example, her claim that men just don’t like red heads. Or curly hair. Or that men only notice women in tight cocktail dresses. After the jump, I debunk some of Patti’s relationship myths, both anecdotally and scientifically.

Evening Quickies: Patti Stanger Pisses Off The Gays With Homophobic Comments

  • “Millionaire Matchmaker”‘s Patti Stanger pissed off the gays last night when she started yapping on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” about gay men and promiscuity. Apparently in Patti’s world, they’re allllll slutty queens. “There is no curbing the gay,” she told a male caller who asked a question about gay, open LDRs. “I’ve tried to curb you people and you just don’t … [trails off] I’ve decided to throw in the towel and say ‘do what you want.’” Later in the episode, she told a gay male caller that he looked straight and then said it was a compliment because he “wasn’t queen-y.” Even Andy Cohen was giving Patti major side-eye and that dude deals with the “Real Housewives.” [YouTube]
  • In more “ugh, Bravo, you didn’t!” news, a tipster tells Radar Online that “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” has decided to air footage from Russell and Taylor Armstrong’s therapy sessions. Russell Armstrong committed suicide last month after a separation from his wife. [RadarOnline]
  • Kyle Massey says the guy who screamed “your mother’s a whore!” at Bristol Palin — after she dismounted a mechanical bull — was possibly planted by TV producers for their reality show. Both the screamer, a Hollywood talent agent/douchebag named Stephen Hanks, and the TV producers claim the confrontation was “real.” Kyle is not so sure because there were lotsa TV cameras present. [Dlisted]
