On last night's episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger did her best to help Chris Manzo find the love of his life. So did it work? Since filming the episode, Chris checked in with the Daily Dish to share an update on his romantic pursuits, what he thinks about Patti calling him a Mama's Boy—and the one Bravolebrity he'd love to hook up with.
What do you think about Patti saying you're a Mama's Boy—does it offend you?
I hear it 600 times a day on Twitter so I am kind of used to it. When it comes to dating however, I am the complete opposite of a Mama's Boy, I do my best to tell my mom as little as possible, I am very private in my personal life. As far as whether or not I agree, I love and respect my mother very much, and if that makes me a Mama's Boy, so be it. But trust me, I have my own life as well.
Dating anyone since working with Patti?
Since the show, I have dated here and there but nothing too serious. I am currently single.
How has Patti changed your approach to meeting women? Has your dating game changed at all?
I got lucky (this go 'round) with Patti. I wasn't picked apart too much besides my own confidence and the way I speak, not so much learning as much as it was nice to be reminded. I don't know if the game will change at all, I kind of hope it does because my dating life is prettttty boring.
Speaking of getting picked apart: what did your brother Albie and sister Lauren think of you going on Matchmaker?
They ripped me! There is zero mercy in the Manzo family. There is no nice in the Manzo family.
What kind of girl do you want to meet long-term?
I am really attracted to girls who are funny and speak their mind. I also like someone who works hard. I think thats a great quality in a girl.
If your ideal match was a Bravolebrity, who would it be and why?
I would probably choose GG from Shahs of Sunset, because I feel like she would keep me guessing, which keeps me interested. And she does the whole starting a business thing, which is a great quality to have.
Your sister Lauren is set to get married this year. Is she nervous, psyched?
Lauren is sooooo psyched. She just wants to be married already, growing up around weddings like we did makes the process really easy for everyone involved.
Any idea who will be your date to the festivities?
I have no idea if I'm bringing a date yet. It would have to be someone I really care about and someone who knows the family already because its a huge day for us. I wouldn't want to have to worry about introducing her to people.
