Patti talks about interoffice dating and the two millionaires who fell for eachother!

on Feb 19, 20090

So, after hours and hours of convincing and urging, I managed to 'force' Destin to allow Rachel to work for us. Good idea on my part? Well, we’ll just have to see about that – Destin may end up with a gray-haired mohawk when all is said and done but oh well, he could have been more firm if he really wanted to – plus, I love her. I thought long and hard about it, and although I am against interoffice romances in general, these are my children and it keeps them under my watchful eye. They better be good...NO FIGHTING! And Rachel, don’t let me down!

Speaking of 'interoffice romances,' can we talk about Heidi and Bill for a second? OK? I KNEW they’d go for each other from minute one. There was no doubt. Two great-looking people with (after all is said and done) good hearts… add a dash of chemistry, a tad of tingles and my watchful eye, and BOOM! ROMANCE! MATCH! GAME OVER! They win...and MC wins!

You know, normally, working with a millionairesses is a challenge. They tend to have either masculine energy or pick everything in life apart. Picky. Critical. Difficult. Heidi was different though. She was sweet and kind – a damaged flower that just needed some love and ‘water.’ A chance to find happiness… and get her pipes cleaned. Gorgeous girls over 40 in LA often think that their life is like Logan’s Run with lights out, however take that smoking biatch and send her to the Midwest and farmers will sow her fields!

And Bill? Ageism. Although I have no strict rule about what age should date what age, if you’re a sixty year old man, you found a winning lottery ticket if you’re dating a twenty five year old girl that doesn’t want children and genuinely loves you for you, not to mention finds you attractive. STOP WITH THE AGEISM. GET OVER YOURSELF. Youth is wonderful, but no replacement for wisdom and experience. Stop the madness and quit asking us how old we are! I like Bill, but stop. For the love of all that is good in the universe...STOP!

I just saw the Bill and Heide episode here in Brazil - just like everbody on this site, I came here to find out if things worked out for them. I know it is a rerun from 2009, so I was hoping the matchmaking service would have a follow-up page - but they do not... hummm... for me, maybe it is a red flag that the matchmaking is just for show, not for real?? Where are the evidences? I agree with a viewer here that maybe Bill's deal was promo for his upcoming new hotel... Very lame and cheap. I think they slept together that night and that might have broken the deal... Bill is pretty much set in finding a bimbo, trophy wife - although Heidi is gorgeous, he figured out his age. I notice his body was not toned at all - kind of an old guy body already, so Heide is not missing much - a better guy probably showed up for her, especially after the show aired back in 2009. If anyone knows anything, please post here... It was a beautiful show, unfortunately a fairy tale ending is really what it is - a fairy tale - not real.. too bad..

"Patti Stranger wants men to stop inquiring about a women's age but she is missing the point. The reality of life is women have a biological time clock for having kids. If an older man wants to find a women to start a family with then that is a legit question to ask."

If I wanted to start a family, it would NOT be with a man significantly older than me. (And um, I know a lot of 40-year-old women who are pursued by 20-something men, 30-something men, and older men--the competition can still be fierce, so don't get too arrogant, my friend.)

A man pushing 50 would be around 70 when the kid graduated from college--and I would not want to spend my time caring for a teenager and helping my husband through his old age issues. If these men want to have families, they'd have better luck by starting sooner than their mid-forties--I've met a lot of men who prefer younger, and are still alone. They complain that they're alone, but think they're too good for women their own age. Just sayin'.
