    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    I thought the lawyer was OK and that he comes with a handicap. He sees the worst of what marriage (and spouses) do to each other. With the right girl, I think he could overcome it.

    As for the bald guy, I didn't really find him creepy - just different. And that's OK, too. If I was on the duck embryo date, after expressing my displeasure at his choice of appetizer and entree, I would have excused myself and found the maitre d' and ordered an entree of my choice. If my date had a problem with it, I'd ask for separate checks. No problem. I'd nip that control-freak test-schmest attitude right in the bud. If he didn't like it, his loss. In no way would I whine about it to Patti.

True most of her clients are losers with no people skills, but you are in a people business, moron. She flies off the handle everytime something doesn't go exactly how she wants. I can't stand her and I would pay an escort service $2000 an hour before I would hire her. I can't imagine this business being successful very much longer with her attitude.
    You are so right!!
    I know they like over the top antics for TV ratings but Patti takes it to a whole different level. She makes women look bad. She's a very poor and pathetic example of what a strong, accomplished business woman should be.
    I feel that the fact that she's almost 50 years old and unmarried has more to do with who would want to live with her rather than a personal choice. And her parents seems so normal and nice. I'm thinking Rosemary's Baby??????

    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    What I find particularly offensive is that if one of her clients talked to her the way she talks to everyone else, she would tell them to get the F out. And I cannot believe that she has actually done that literally (told a client to get the F out of her office). If you don't want to work for a client, you calmly tell them, "I am sorry, but I'm just not going to be able to help you, I wish you luck" blah blah, you DON"T say get the F out, totally 100% comletely UNPROFESSIONAL for any business. I think she is just a spoiled pampered rich girl that inherited the family business, which is why she is so rude and crude, she did not have to earn or build the business, she just inherited it, and like most inherited wealth that goes to the idiot son or daughter, its usually squandered from incompetence in a short time.

    I think you're absolutely right on all counts here. But I don't think it'll matter how she behaves. I don't see this business continuing for a long time. She better enjoy her 15 minutes because they're almost up and good riddance.

    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    This is an excerpt from an interview with Patti just before Season 4 (the current season) began. As she lists her "non-negotiable" traits in a mate, note her priorities:
    You ask your clients what their non-negotiables are, so what are yours?

    No one's ever asked me that question. I like that question! OK, first thing is, I would like him to make equal or more money. Now, it's not that I'm not generous. I spend too much money on my man, and I get in a lot of trouble for that. I have dated down financially, and it bit me in the butt. They guy wants to take over my bank account or doesn't want to work.

    Two, I'm a TV star. I live in the world of entertainment. If you hate the entertainment business, you're not for me.

    Three, family first. I'll tell Bravo I can't shoot today if my kid is sick. You've gotta be a family guy first.

    Four, I want a sexy, rugged kind of guy. I want a wood chopper. I don't want to go to therapy. When I come home, I want to watch TV, eat a chicken and get into my bath. I don't want to talk three hours about what happened during my day. I can't do that. I talk all day long.

    Number five, which is the most important thing, you must be a take-charge guy. I'm the girl. I'll pay for things as well. I'll upgrade us to first class. You'll get gifts, but you're the man, you're the leader. I want to be the follower. I don't want to be the man in the relationship.

    And maybe there's a sixth non-negotiable: I want a man who goes on camera with me for lunch or dinner, maybe once a season. He doesn't have to be like Bethenny's Jason [Hoppy, Frankel's husband on 'Bethenny Getting Married?'], but it would be nice. Andy wouldn't do that for me, yet he did Tori [Spelling] and Dean [McDermott's] show, and that was one of the reasons I broke up with him. I need my guy to be proud of me, and I want to be proud of my man.
    Patti Stanger Dishes on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Season 4

    1. Money
    2. "I'm a TV star"
    3. Family guy (she comes first)
    4. Sexy - and daily life will be all about her needs, not his
    5. Take charge guy - this is in direct conflict with her other priorities
    6. Must be willing to be on her show

    Of note, she doesn't consider herself a matchmaker as much as a TV star and she comes first in every way in this imaginary relationship.

    Oh, wait - she'll pay for airline upgrades.

    What did her ex-fiance do on Tori's tv show?

    I don't know, Debb. I don't even know his last name. It seems his first name is "Andy?" Or maybe I misread that.

    Here is a little blurb on this Andy person.

    Andy Friedman, a 51-year-old real estate executive that Patti Stanger, 48, met through her own matchmaker five and a half years ago - popped the question in Maui on her May 31 birthday

    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    I just can't imagine any man that makes equal or more money wanting to put up with her, she seems beyond high maintenance. She is high maintenance, plus huge ego, plus its all about me (her), plus she's an elitist snob (I'm a celebrity), plus she has a rude crude mouth and overall aura of yuckiness, plus she isn't even attractive and is over weight. What is my motivation here?????

    I was with you until the overweight remark. If she's overweight, it is only slightly, and I'm sick of men (and other women) judging a woman's beauty by her weight according to Hollywood or fashion magazine standards. Great women come in all shapes and sizes ... and, no, I'm not what anyone would consider overweight, but that's just the way I am and not because I feel I have to be slender to be attractive.
