Jenny McCarthy Helps 'The Millionaire Matchmaker,' Makes Guys Squirm (VIDEO)

Jenny McCarthy, 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'The bachelors on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) clearly aren't confident or comfortable in their dating lives, or they wouldn't be coming to Patti Stanger. Take frustrated single men and put them in a room with Jenny McCarthy, and their nerves are going to be heightened even more.

To torture teach the client a bit more, McCarthy suggested they have the bachelor try to pick her up like she's at a bar. Then, to completely throw off what little game he was trying to muster, she immediately put him on the spot. "I just wanted to come over and say hi because I noticed your eyes from across the bar," he said.

Patti Stanger Offends Jewish and Gay Viewers on 'Watch What Happens Live' (VIDEO)

'Millionaire Matchmaker' host Patti Stanger has built a career on giving people dating guidance, but Sunday night on 'Watch What Happens Live,' her advice veered into offensive territory. Taking calls from viewers, Stanger repeatedly packaged gay and Jewish stereotypes as insight in a segment that offended viewers and made host Andy Cohen visibly uncomfortable.

Things started to get uncomfortable when a gay man called in asking a question about maintaining an open long-term relationship. Stanger said, "In the gay world, it will always be open," and continued, "I've tried to curb you people." She then referenced a gay sex site.

Andy Cohen recoiled in shock. "I'm down for the monogamy," he said, pushing back on her comments. She immediately burst out laughing. "When was the last time you had a boyfriend?" she asked, incredulously.

First Date and First Time on a Horse for Eric on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 16th 2011 1:44AM
'The Millionaire Matchmaker'In the first ever all-male edition of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Thu., 9PM ET on Bravo), Patti Stanger spotlighted exclusively some of her gay millionaire clients. With one of those clients, Eric, she was able to push him completely out of his comfort zone.

It was a little surprising when he admitted to his date, Christopher, that he'd never ridden a horse before. Particularly because the date Eric had set up involved them going on a horseback ride down a beach toward sunset.

First dates and first impressions are intimidating enough, but then to put yourself in a situation where you're completely outside what's familiar and comfortable takes a great deal of bravery. To his credit, Eric kept his cool even when the horse bolted on him a bit, and the shared experience seemed to initiate a connection between the two.

Dina Lohan Talks 'Living Lohan,' Wants to Appear on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

Dina Lohan on 'Wendy Williams'The Lohan clan has had its share of public meltdowns and scandals, including Lindsay's struggle with addiction. Of course, the reality show 'Living Lohan,' in which Dina Lohan tried to jumpstart her younger daughter Ali's career didn't help things. Dina went on 'Wendy Williams' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) set the record straight and talk about moving on, perhaps with the help of Patti Stanger of 'Millionaire Matchmaker.'

Dina repeated her claim that producers wanted her and her family to stage little dramas for 'Living Lohan,' which she was unwilling to do. "I did that show to pretty much set the record straight, as well, but then they wanted us to do all these crazy things like me fake a pregnancy," she said. "It's just not us. It was just not who we are as a family, you know, so I opted out."

Both Guys Pick the Same Girl on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'This week, 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Thu., 9PM ET on Bravo) was apparently about making people feel unwanted. First, both millionaire bachelors wanted to choose Jaclyn for their master date. This put the power in her hands, but left the other woman, Tammy, standing there feeling rejected.

Jaclyn chose Brandon. "I felt like we talked about fun and enjoyable things and that's the reason why I ended up choosing him."

What she didn't get into were the reasons she didn't want to choose William. When Patti Stanger turned to Tammy and basically asked if she wanted to go on a date with the other rejected single in the room, Tammy politely declined.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Takes On Awkward Groupon Copywriter (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 30th 2011 7:00PM
Daniel Kibblesmith on 'Millionaire Matchmaker'Even with millionaires, dating can be a hit or miss experience, especially if you're as awkward as Daniel Kibblesmith. Kibblesmith, who earned his fortune as an early employee of Groupon, sought the help of Patti Stanger on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (Mondays, 9PM on Bravo) to find a woman he could get along with. He didn't exactly find what he was looking for.

Kibblesmith expressed his worry about the whole thing the way any millionaire humor writer would, through puppets. His advice to himself for dealing with Stranger, spoken through a puppet with sunny-side-up eggs for eyes, was, "Don't contradict her because her fingernails are long and beautiful." Clearly this was going to take a lot of work, and that included Stranger telling Kibblesmith how to adjust himself in his pants.

'The Millionaire Matchmaker' Is a Love Guru on 'Drop Dead Diva' (VIDEO)

Patti Stanger the Millionaire Matchmaker, 'Drop Dead Diva''The Millionaire Matchmaker' herself, Patti Stanger, made a special guest appearance on 'Drop Dead Diva' (Sun., 9PM ET on Lifetime). It was her first acting performance, and she did a solid job. To keep it familiar perhaps, her character was also in the relationship business, but Marcy's focus was on encouraging women not to give it away.

When she targeted Jane at one of her workshops, Teri stood up to defend her friend and take down her old high school classmate. Marcy was a bully then and she proved herself to still be a bully.

"Teri Lee," she said. "I see you've changed. Your acne cleared up."

Patti Stanger Enlists Tori Spelling to Teach a Client About Modern Women (VIDEO)

Tori Spelling, 'Millionaire Matchmaker'One of the reasons David may be having so much trouble finding the perfect woman on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (Mon., 9PM ET on Bravo) is because he's looking for June Cleaver. Or, as Patti Stanger said, "He's so old-fashioned. He wants Stepford."

Stanger took him to meet her friend Tori Spelling, so he could see a woman who's managed to be more than a housewife and mother. Spelling is an author and business owner, but things got derailed a bit when he saw her cooking an amazing spread.

"This is what I expect," he said of the lavish meal. "I am in Heaven right now."

But the women kept pounding on him to drive the point home that modern women can and do do everything that men do. It's odd that Michael has managed to have a chauvinistic view of women in this modern society, but there it is.

Patti Gets Into a Fight With Her Client on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Patti Stanger isn't going to take any crap from anyone, and particularly from clients who don't follow her orders. This can happen when dealing with millionaires, as she obviously is on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Mon., 9PM ET on Bravo), because in many cases, there's an arrogance and sense of entitlement that comes with wealth.

After a disastrous first date, Stanger sat down to hash it out with one of the millionaires, but he wasn't interested in her opinions, or apparently the opinion of the woman he kind of freaked out on the date.

Most guys opt for cocktails, coffee or maybe a simple dinner to facilitate conversation and break the ice on a first date. This guy decided the best way to start the date was with a photo shoot. Doesn't he know how creepy that comes across to most women?

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Will Find New York Gold Diggers in its Fourth Season

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 16th 2010 4:02PM
Patty Stranger of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'There's a bit of a love-hate relationship with 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' in my house. I watch because its fun to see people who have it going on financially fumble around in their attempts at finding love. It's also fun to see matchmaker Patty Stanger (who TMZ once very accurately called a "Muppet-faced yenta") scream at her peons, the millionaires who seek her help, the men and women she recruits to date them, and just about anyone who comes into her orbit.

But what always nagged me about the show is that she's essentially setting her clients up with gold diggers. Bravo has renewed the show for a fourth season, where we'll see Stranger expanding her business into New York. Which should be fun, since the Big Apple has a higher class of social strivers than the aspiring-actor/actress-slash-bartender types Patty's been finding in L.A.

Bethenny Frankel appears to have it all: fame, fortune, Skinnygirl Margaritas -- everything, that is, except for her own reality series.

Until now.

Frankel, one of the breakout stars of Bravo's 'Real Housewives of New York,' is set to star in her own series called 'Bethenny's Getting Married?', which will presumably follow Frankel's engagement to Jason Hoppy, according to E! (yes, the question mark is intentional).

Real Orange County wife evicted and scandalized

Lynn_Curtin_Bravo_Real_HousewivesLately, I feel like I need a shower after watching an episode of any of the Real Housewives on Bravo. The franchise is getting progressively trashier, which probably doesn't bother Bravo because the ratings have continued to boom.

This latest news might help The Real Housewives of Orange County when it returns. Reality star Lynne Curtin has been accused of stealing furniture from the house she'd been renting for the show. Not only that, but the homeowner is claiming Curtin also destroyed property before vacating.

That image is diametrically opposite of the one presented on the show. Curtin's home was never revealed to be a rental for starters. Her domestic situation was also seemingly secure and stable, with no problems with her husband and children.
