    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    Millionaire Matchmaker is a cheesy informercial.

    To be fair to Patti (oy vey!), she did catch a p0rn star who showed up at her casting call, ahem, match interview. The chick was "Mandy." I think Stanger must have asked her what she did for a living, and she said she is a [proud] p0rn star.

    Stanger sent her home to change her outfit. Just kidding, she sent her home. But where do her casting call notices appear for all these naughty women to hear about her show? She's made comments about their implants or plunging dresses. She does stress women can't be gold diggers. Gold digging is "not allowed."

    It's astounding how poorly she treats millionaires who have paid her 1,000x more than her service is worth.

    I hear she broke up with her fiancee. It took him five years before he proposed. Not surprising, is it? He must have seen the way she treats men on her show. Savaging them. She is really nasty!

    Of course she's spinning the breakup as her dumping him, because she wants babies, and he doesn't. What man wants her to be the mother of his children? She's a loose canon with a bad temper.

    If you ever get a chance during the reruns of this show, watch her square off with the salon owner from Minnesota. Epic cat fight! The millionairess whom Patti says got Botox. The Botox Girl countered by accusing Patti of getting her lips sucked out. Watch Patti squirm!

    Anyone else notice how they cleaned up her wiki page to take out unflattering details from her business history?

    TMZ got audio of her savaging a woman, so I guess that proves she's not just a man hater.

    I agree that people pay big bucks for her do her magic and to be honest with you, to be treated the way she treats them is terrible, I know her clients can drive you crazy but to be cursed at and say "get the f**k out of my office you f**cken Brooklyn bum"she curses more than the new yorkers that come on her show....I am surprised no one has ever to tried deck her one, though a guy hitting a girl is not cool, personally I would love it....she is classless in my opinion.

    Update

    I was reading the TMZ comments below the audio, and found one post which seems to answer the question of how the casting notices are circulated:

    ...for those who think her show is legit, think again. They were shooting in NYC, I work as an actress/model. I was contacted by my modeling agency to work on the show as a "date" for "The Millionaires." I am married and told them no. Just remember peeps, there is NOTHING real about "reality" tv!
    Another thing... did you see the episode when she was screening wedding planners? She would ask them how many *celebrity* weddings they'd done. If they said none, she dismissed them immediately.

    I think she may have interned with Naomi Campbell.

    On another note: did anyone think romance queen Cindy in the purple dress in Central Park with Mike looked TOTALLY pregnant? The empire waist hid alot, but when the wind blew the dress against her it definitely looked like a baby bump. And she even rested her hand on top of the bump at one point! Or am I crazy???

    I just watched the show last night, and I see what you mean about the possible baby bump. It was hard to tell whether it was that or just a slight pooch, or the folds of the dress. Their date was sweet, but they seem to be attracted to each other for very superficial reasons. Mike was smitten with her looks, and she was taken with the idea that he has a bodyguard business and therefore, she thinks, would be protective of her. She also seemed smitten with the idea that he was so smitten with her.

    The Peter Pan beach guy turned out better than I expected. He would have preferred that Amy had tried the ski thing, but after she declined, he still was interested in her, so I thought that showed some maturity. Time will tell. I would like to see just ONE match she made on this show result in a lasting relationship. The only one I remember as a possibility was early on, maybe the first season, when Patti fixed up a nerdy guy with a big buxom blonde who seemed to be trying to channel Marilyn Monroe. Anyone remember them? I think there was a followup the next season about them getting engaged, if I remember correctly. Didn't see anything as to whether they actually did get married.

    I remember them. Such an odd coupling but they did seem to be smitten with each other. I wonder whatever became of them.

    I really believe that most of what we see is done for shock value for ratings only. But I still wonder why a woman would allow herself to be viewed by the whole world as a screeching low class harpy just for money and celebrity.
    Whatever happened to the concept of pride?

    This pretty much describes most if not all the women on these reality shows, with very few exceptions. Yes, they do it for money and celebrity. The more complex and perhaps less understood question to me is ... why do we watch?

    So we can complain?

    I think you may just be right about that. I doubt that in real life we would ever tolerate anyone who acted so crassly, like Patti and a lot of other reality "stars." And in real life, there's enough negative things that happen that we have no control over so when we watch these over-the-top characters act so badly, we get to gleefully complain, gossip and berate these fools. And it's ok to do so because we don't know them, they'll never know what we say and they gave us permission to do so when they signed on to reveal all the skeletons in their closets. I think it's like a pressure release valve and maybe it might be a reminder to all of us how NOT to act.
