'The Millionaire Matchmaker'If ever Patti Stanger wanted validation that she was good at what she does, she certainly got it on the second part of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. Unbeknownst to her or host Andy Cohen, one of her client bachelors had an agenda all his own.

"Baby, I love you with all my heart," David said to Ayla, the woman Stanger set him up with, before dropping to one knee. He then took out a gorgeous diamond ring and asked her to marry him.

In the background, Stanger and Cohen were as speechless as Ayla was, and perhaps nearly as overjoyed when she emphatically said yes. "I've waited for a guy who would be as nice as my father is, and he's everything and more," Ayla said a few minutes later, beaming with her fiance by her side.

'The Millionaire Matchmaker' reunion specialBecause Andy Cohen will host a reunion of anything, he presided over 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. And in it, he decided to take on Patti Stanger's job, only Patti was going to be his client.

When a viewer wrote in asking about former client Marcellus asking Patti on a date, Marcellus was clearly interested. As expected, Patti deflected and started talking about another woman she knew, but Cohen wasn't going to let it die that easily.

"I kind of like the idea of the two of you together," he said, pulling them back to the topic at hand. Patti said she'd try it, though she didn't seem to believe it could work out between the two of them. One thing was absolutely for certain, Marcellus was interested.

Patti Stanger, 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Patti Stanger has made a career out of helping other people find love, as we see each week on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo). But this week, she turned the full power of her matchmaking service on herself. It must be difficult helping other people find love all the time when you're not in love yourself.

In this case, Stanger was the millionaire, and the service hooked her up with John, a very nice-looking man who was genuinely fascinated by what she did for a living and how she came to this particular calling.

Frank Marino, 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Las Vegas drag queen Frank Marino had an interesting idea for 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo). While he'd already established that he was attracted to men as varied as Taylor Lautner and Ryan Seacrest, there was one more man that apparently caught his eye.

"What would you think of trying to hook me up with your other millionaire?" he asked Patti Stanger.

It was certainly an unorthodox idea, but one Stanger was certainly willing to try, even though that other millionaire wasn't gay.

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.

Abe Messes Up His First Date By Moving Way Too Fast on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Most men have tried to move too fast early in a relationship. On 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Thu., 9PM ET on Bravo), Abe took even that age-old problem a step further. It's one thing to maybe make a move too soon, or come across a little too aggressively.

Abe decided that on their first date, he should invite her back to his place -- already a risky thing considering they'd barely started eating -- where he wanted her to join him in his hot tub. She was immediately uncomfortable with that option, though we're not sure he picked up on it.

Patti Stanger Tries to Clairfy Anti-Gay Comments

Patti StangerPatti Stanger's media tour continues, but she's not exactly cleaning up her anti-gay mess.

In an appearance on HLN's 'The Joy Behar Show,' the 'Millionaire Matchmaker' tried to clarify the statements she made on 'Watch What Happens Live,' but only seemed to reiterate them.

"For five years I have put gay dating on the map," Stanger said. "Nobody else ever did this. There was no Logo then. I did the No H8 campaign, I was an advocate for gay marriage. I stood up there for my gay friends -- I have more gay friends than Carter has pills."

However, Stanger says there is no way to force gay men into monogamous relationships, especially in Los Angeles. "I'm trying to curb them," she told Behar.

'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.

Jill Zarin On Being Fired From 'Real Housewives' and Her Reality TV Future (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 21st 2011 3:30PM
Jill Zarin may have been booted off the 'The Real Housewives of New York,' but from the sound of her interview on 'The Wendy Williams Show,' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) she won't be off the reality TV circuit for long. Zarin talked with Williams about the experience of being fired from Bravo's 'Housewives' franchise and hinted at her next TV move.

Zarin had a hunch she might not be asked to return to the show, so she didn't allow herself to get emotional when she got the bad news. "I knew that this was coming. This was not a surprise. All the ladies got a phone call that other week that 3 were coming back and the other four weren't decided ... And then Saturday night I got a phone call from the producer saying the decision was final and they'd be putting out a press release in 5 minutes," she said, sounding emotional.

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)

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?
