The love expert says the surprising Hollywood couple stands a chance.

Let's hear it for the rebound guys! After her ugly breakup with Simon, Orange County Housewife Tamra Barney fell head-over-heels in love with her hot and younger beau Eddie. We're not sure what vibe Millionaire Matchmaker's Patti Stanger has on that newfound love, but she's fully endorsing Scarlett Johansson – who's fresh off her split from hubby Ryan Reynolds – coupling up with Sean Penn.

"That's going to be an interesting dynamic," the relationship guru tells E! Initially, heads turned when rumors sprouted that newly single Scarlett, 26, was getting cozy with 50-year-old Penn, but Patti says, "She's a Sag, he's a Leo. That could last. He could be the older man -- Calista Flockhart kind of syndrome thing."

Good thing, because the couple recently flaunted their love for all of Hollywood -- and tabloids -- to see at Reese Witherspoon's wedding. There is one catch, however. P stipulates, "It could last if he's faithful. It could last." So, who does the Matchmaker predict will fail epicly in the fidelity department? Olivier Martinez, aka Halle Berry's latest modelesque arm candy. Patti blurts to E!, "That man's a f--king cheater!" Tell us what you really think, Patti.
