Surprise Proposal on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' Reunion Special (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 2:00AM
'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.

Andy Cohen Tries to Set Patti Stanger Up on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Reunion (VIDEO)

'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 Offends Sharnay, Who Fights Back on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Patti Stanger holds nothing back, and Sharnay didn't take it too well on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo). Of course, we don't think very many women would take it very well being asked, "Are you a man? Are you a woman?"

Stanger told her to come back after she got a makeover so she wouldn't look like a drag queen. When Sharnay went to defend herself, Stanger told her to bring it. So she did, insulting Stanger's stomach and lips. Granted, Sharnay didn't do herself any favors by saying Stanger had lipo in her lips, considering that doesn't even make sense.

Stanger, on the other hand, went to lift Sharnay's dress to look for male genitalia, so neither woman was on their best behavior.

Frank Marino Wants to Hook Up With the Straight Millionaire on 'Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

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.

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

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 14th 2011 6:15AM
'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.

Andy Cohen Hedges on His 'No New Housewives' Edict: 'Never Say Never'

Because Andy Cohen is not only a "Bravo-lebrity" -- he's host of the loosey-goosey talk show 'Watch What Happens Live' -- but he's also the network's executive vice president of original programming, it's hard to pin him down on certain issues.

For instance, when asked about his assertion last month that 'The Real Housewives' series won't be expanding into new cities, he backtracks a little bit. "Um, I mean, you know, look, I mean, look, never say never, but I think we're really good right now," he told me earlier this week. He also won't mention the fate of 'The Real Housewives of DC:' "You know what, we have not made any announcements and we haven't really gotten into it." (Update: 'The Real Housewives of DC' was officially canceled on April 7.)

One thing is certain, though: if the show is pushing into Toronto, as was reported last week, it won't be produced by Bravo: "You know what, I don't know if that's a license deal. I don't know what that is. But that was the first I had heard of it too."

On Thursday, April 7 at 11PM ET, Cohen celebrated the 100th episode of 'WWHL,' and he's enjoying every minute of his side gig. "I love it that right now it's kind of somewhere between 'Wayne's World' and a Fellini movie," Cohen said.

An Admitted Lack of Chemistry Ends a Date Abruptly on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'Honesty is always the best policy, right? Maybe that depends on your intended result. It may have gone perfectly to play for the guy in this date from 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM on Bravo).

"You know how you have to have chemistry when you're on a date?" he said abruptly in the middle of the date, between bites of his hamburger. "I don't know if I'm feeling it."

She asked him why he would just bring that up and he said he was just giving his read of the situation. "Not in a bad way." He was, however, feeling that fine cuisine, as he kept shoveling burger and fries into his mouth.

'Millionaire Matchmaker's' Worst Client Ever Has a Drink Thrown in His Face (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 29th 2010 5:45AM
Sometimes, it can be hard to tell when a date is going badly. Laughter, eye contact, body language ... these things can all convey different messages. But sometimes, it's not so hard to tell if a date is going badly. Like when you have a drink thrown in your face. That's usually a bad sign.

On the new 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo), Patti Stanger encounters her "worst client ever" -- Matthew Siegal, heir to a multimillion-dollar fortune based on a "cookie diet." Yes, a cookie diet. Matt didn't have to work for his money; he inherited it instead. And he seems to think that he shouldn't have to work for love either.

Matthew is a "gaygist" -- an older gay man who only dates young men. Matt is in his 40s -- but wants to date 20-something dudes, so that he can mold them into his "ideal." So Patti sets up Matt with his perfect date: a young man named Rhett. But Rhett refuses to be "molded."

Rachel Federoff (the "VP of Matching") pulls her aside. Patti lectures the client, saying, "You give nobody a chance ... I'm done!" She later explains, "Andrea's still trying to control everything, with her wish list down to the floor ... You think you could do better than that? I don't think so."

David Taunts Date on 'Millionaire Matchmaker'On 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on BRAVO), David decides to make his date as uncomfortable as possible under the guise of testing her taste. At a restaurant, he orders them uni (sea urchin) shooters and then Balut, i.e., fermented duck embryo.

"My plan is to test her palette and ... see just how refined she is," David explains. When she refuses to, er, drink the uni, the millionaire tells her, "You can, and you will." She pushes the embryo away as well.

"When you made this like whole date, did you think I was going to like it, or you just thought what you wanted?" she inquires. Clearly, the latter.

Millionairess Forces Dates into Dunk Tank on 'Matchmaker' (VIDEO)

Brett Gets Dunked on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' One of the mini-dates that Patti Stanger has set up for Leah is with two guys at once: BFFs Brett and Chris. On 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on BRAVO), they seem more interested in hanging out with each other than with Leah, so she eyes a nearby dunk tank. "Chris and Brett really didn't seem serious about anything," explains Leah. "So I'm like, 'You know what, guys, let's just go to the dunk tank.'"

Brett is game, and quickly strips down to his undies. Sitting in the tank, he yells, "It's ice cold -- just like your heart!" Chris seems less enthused but goes through with it, too. Patti says, "I should be mad at her for showing a little masculine energy, but it's kinda funny so I'm going to let her slide."

"I think every uncomfortable moment I could ever possibly have in my entire life has happened on this date," she says. "But there's something to be said about a man who can actually make you feel really, really comfortable ... He was really, really charming."

So much so that they end up kissing, and she wants to see him again. He likes her too. Awww. And good news for Stanger's ailing success rate.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Client Is Happy SingleEverybody knows: Don't get on Patti Stanger's bad side. And everyone also knows, the easiest way to piss her off would be to basically tell her you don't want or need her services.

On 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on BRAVO), Patti tells one client that she's not connecting with men. "Your problem is you send mixed messages. You confuse people ... It's like 'Waaa Waaa! Warning Will Robinson!'" referencing 'Lost in Space' as she flails her arms.

The woman bristles and says, "I don't need anybody to figure me out ... I'm happy being single. What?! Wrong answer, dear. Patti replies: "Then why the [beep] did you come to me? ... Get the [beep] out of here!"

During a screening session, Andrea neglects to give Patti applications to go with candidates' pictures, then gives her an application with no picture.

Patti (in front of her own parents) takes it out on Rachel, telling her to "train her ass" and "make sure she does her goddamn job right!" Patti adds, "I don't care that she's pretty!"

Rachel storms up to Andrea and says, "Patti's two steps away from firing you, and I'm two steps away from walking my ass out, because I'm tired of getting blamed for s---. Handle it. Thanks."

Jason Breaks Rules on 'Millionaire Matchmaker'Jason breaks Patti Stanger's rules on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on BRAVO). No good will come of this -- except our entertainment. Jason brings his obnoxious buddies along on a first date and then proceeds to get wasted. Patti brings him in for a verbal smackdown.

"You have no respect for women. Why did bring the guys, your buddies, on the date when I explicitly told you 55 times not to?" Patti asks. Jason says he wanted her to see "what she was getting herself into" and refuses to apologize.

"You're immature, you might as well date your friends. That's why you're 30 and single, baby." At that, Jason wants to "get the [beep] outta here." Patti is happy to oblige, shouting, "Get the [beep] out of my club!" He tells her she has a "bad attitude." And as he storms off, she calls him a "[beep] Brooklyn no-name [beep] punk!"
