Patti Stanger isn't exactly known for holding back. As founder and CEO of The Millionaire's Club--the matchmaking service that fixes up high-net-worth clients on dates chronicled on the hit Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker--she regularly berates her (mostly male) roster of clients, demanding that they follow her strict instructions in order to find true love. Turns out she's equally acerbic when it comes to celebrity splits. From Eva Longoria ("Karma's a bitch") to Sandra Bullock ("there's this wound") to Ryan Reynolds ("he looked sadder than life") to Kelsey Grammer ("he's a jumper") to Tiger Woods ("he will cheat no matter who he's with") and many other stars, she's got an opinion about everyone, plus regular folks who are looking to settle down again after divorce, which she shared earlier today on the phone from her Marina del Rey, California, office.

The Millionaire Matchmaker will not let its third season (its first in New York) go unnoticed! First they gave us the creepiest millionaire ever, who "tested" his date with scary food and kept looking at all the women with mental calculations like he was going to make a coat out of their skin. Last week we had a gay millionaire who got a drink thrown in his face (yes!), and Patti, as awful as she is, described him as a "gaygist" (a gay agist.) He may have been right about Patti's semi-homophobic ignorance, but he was a total prick, too. In its relentless style, The Millionaire Matchmaker has given us another person we wish would just fall out of the sky (dead) like all those birds in Louisiana. Meet Robin, owner of a beauty PR firm, and lover of all things pink and Hello Kitty. As if my groan could not be audible enough, she is also completely intolerable and shallow. She is the Millionaire Club's first "plumpty dumpty." To Read More Click Here.
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." http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/12/29/millionaire-matchmakers-worst-client-ever-has-a-drink-thrown/

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. Source & Video
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." Source & Video
Patti Stanger's latest client on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on BRAVO) is a rich but juvenile beach bum. So he and the woman Stanger has matched with him go wake-boarding. That doesn't pan out, nor does the picnic, as it starts to rain. "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. Source & Video
