I was just on The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo. Who is she, you ask? Great question! I had no idea who she was before I went on her show either. Patti Stanger is THE Millionaire Matchmaker, an “experienced third-generation matchmaker” with a reality show on Bravo. The show matches millionaires who are looking for “true love”, but really the show is about Patti, the viper-tongued matchmaker who refers to men and women by their genitalia and screams at people who dare disagree with her. Patti herself is also finally getting married, so this season the show will feature her planning her wedding. The producers thought it a great idea to match Patti up with her own wedding planner, but from the tantrum that Patti threw as she met with those of us who were picked for her, she’s not into the whole wedding thing. I’ve never seen a more angry bride.
I, along with four other successful and incredible wedding planners, was brought in to meet Patti. Thankfully, the show only aired about five minutes of the hour long process that was as pleasant as a shark feeding. One of the planners left the room crying after she was viciously torn apart based on her appearance alone.
The worst thing Patti said to me was that I looked like a “Victorian librarian who lives in Pasadena” and exclaimed as I was leaving the room how much she “hates redheads“. I don’t know about you, but living in a mansion in Pasadena and reading books all day sounds like an awesome life to me! Maybe I’m in the wrong field? Oh, wait, I love planning fabulous weddings for happy brides. Nevermind!
PS: Oh, and Patti? ALL of my clients are celebrities. For one day, at least!
