Ashley Hebert of The Bachelorette
What's Patti Stanger doing next Monday night? We're not sure, but The Millionaire Matchmaker's definitely not watching Ashley Hebert try to fulfill her quest to find true love on The Bachelorette.

"@pattistanger what do you think of The Bachelorette's dating style?" a fan tweeted our resident hookup pro. Patti's response? "People, it's a tv show! ...not reality!"

Pot calling the kettle black? "One could say the same about your show! It's TV," another fan tweeted, although Patti failed to see the connection. "Actually ours is not fake...real people, real time!" she shot back.

The brash brunette returns to her love making ways on August 18 at 9/8c, and fans are already requesting she cross employee/boss boundaries. "@pattistanger why haven't you set up @BravoAndy?" @MsEnglishmuffin tweeted. Watch out, Andy, Patti's pointing her cupid's arrow in your direction. "I'd love to...all he has to do is ask!" she replied.

As for her own single status, the 50-year-old's recently come to a new revelation. "Made a decision: only dating successful men from now on! Sick of being mama. What's your new dating decision?" she tweeted.
