I had been feeling lost without the weekly wisdom (ha) from The Millionaire Matchmaker‘s Patti Stanger. Luckily, there are some exclusive interviews online, including the one above, in which Patti discusses how gay and lesbian dating is different from heterosexual dating. In it, she pontificates on how rich, ugly gay men date hot men, and how lesbians are mostly just looking for their best friend. Does this woman know how to stereotype or what? Keep reading »
Heads might roll in Patti Stanger’s office today. It seems that she or her Millionaire’s Club staff did not vet all of the women who they set their rich clients up with for The Millionaire Matchmaker, and TMZ reports that Cidney, the women who was proposed to on Tuesday night’s episode, has modeled for Playboy. Another woman, Marcela, bears an uncanny resemblance to “Victoria,” an escort who charges $300 per hour. It suddenly makes sense why all the women on the show look like cheap hookers! Keep reading »
Last night was the season finale of The Millionaire Matchmaker (sadness!), and, of course, it ended on a positive note. While having a romantic evening in Las Vegas, Paul, a Jewish, self-made millionaire from Azerbaijan, proposes to his shocked date, Cidney. Her response is, “I’ll consider it,” because she wants them to get to know each other better. Uh, we would hope so, considering this was their first real date. While Patti seems to be happy about this, rushing into things goes against advice she gave out on the above web-exclusive video. In it, Patti says that you need to date someone for four seasons, which would make it a little tougher for someone with seasonal affective disorder to find love.
While you’re waiting for season two, take the “Are You Millionaire Material?” personality quiz. I took it and am not millionaire material. [BravoTV] Keep reading »
Last night’s Millionaire Matchmaker featured Brendan, a young (26!) New Jersey millionaire, and Robby, aka “The Roller Rapper,” who is 39 and just finished roller-skating across the country on what he calls his “Love Tour,” raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

There are times when I struggle being a person of limited height, i.e., when I want a box of cereal on the top shelf at the grocery store, when I need to replace the battery in my smoke alarm, or when I want to kiss a guy who is 6’4” and I’m not wearing heels. It’s tough being a bit of a shortie, and I’m a girl, so I can only imagine what men must go through, especially when it comes to dating.
On last night’s Millionaire Matchmaker, Joseph, 5’8″, struggles to find a woman who would date someone shorter than herself. Well, Joseph is most likely not 5’8″. Guys lie about their height more than they lie about the size of a particular body part. In our opinion, the problem with Joseph is not that he is short, or even that he lies about his height, but that he sees himself with a tall, model-esque woman. We have nothing against short guys dating tall girls — hello, Tom and Katie, not to mention every guy who dates a model or a Williams’ sister — but the fact that he’s ruling out the possibility of dating a short woman is disturbing, mostly because I don’t want anyone ruling me out.

Last nightâ€™s Millionaire Matchmaker featured Peter, who designs and markets cosmetics, and sells videos of himself doing Qi Gong, along with buddies Tai and German (pronounced â€œHair-Monâ€) who want to do everything together, including meet their dates shirtless. (They should become friends with Matthew McConaughey.)
Peter is an Aquarius, new to Malibu, and, through his charitable contributions, “fed 20,000 families last year.” He tells Patti that he doesnâ€™t want a model actress and is more interested in someone whoâ€™s over 30 and into nature. (Also, from our observations, she would have to be very willing to practice Qi Gong. Heâ€™s very into it.) But when it comes to actually picking a woman, Peter, of course, goes for the model/actress who is young and stupid. The date really goes downhill when he meditates before eating dinner.
