My Hot Co-workers

The ladies of the office from a man's point of view

Chelsea and Alison, oi. My hot co-workers, my little sisters, my problem children, the girls all my friends want to hook up with.

What's it like working with them? Heck, what's it like being the only guy working for the company? Interesting, to say the least. Let's start with Chelsea. Chelsea is a rare breed of person. She's funny, sensitive, spontaneous, adventuresome and loving. But she's also moody, picky and opinionated, but those are things that make her, her. Honestly, she kinda scares me. Matter of fact, she's one of only three people in the world who do, along with my mother and my girlfriend. Love 'em to death, but man, don't say the wrong thing to them or you're done for (I am so in trouble for writing this.)

As for Alison, she's a sweet person with a good heart. She's talented, easy going and fun, but she's also quiet, money focused and a secret vixen. She'll rip your eyes out if you cross her, and she'll do it with a smile. Have you ever seen that episode of Little House on the Prairie where Laura Ingles is being bullied around by that bratty blonde girl? Laura starts crying and we all learn something about life and family once the bully gets her just desserts. Well, that would be Alison, except she'd come back with a baseball bat and beat the blonde girl into a pulp when no one was looking just for dirtying her dress.

If you put the two together in the same room and asked me who the better matchmaker was, I couldn't tell you. They both have such unique styles and abilities that it would be hard to say. Different clients respond to them in different ways. So, between the two of them they have all of our men and women covered. Now, having said that, if you put me in that room too and ask that question, well, that's a different story (wink!)

In regards to that whole raise controversy, I'm a very supportive person to both Patti and the girls. When I was approached about this, my initial feelings were from the old school of "it never hurts to ask," but do it the right way and be professional. So, the train wreck that occurred because of it, well, what did she expect? I would have had the exact same reaction as Patti. If a person feels entitled to a raise, fine, but think it through first. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, which backfires sometimes.

Being the only guy, I have to put up with a lot of moods, girl talk, complaints, randomness and shopping, but I think I handle it well. It's like watching a play to me. I get to see them go off on each other, argue one minute, laugh the next, model outfits, you name it. All I need is the popcorn and I'm set. I'm like a rooster with a mohawk in a henhouse. No, maybe not. That's a horrible way to put it. How about this -- I'm like the male bass player in an otherwise all-girl band. I'm quiet, do my job, contribute and don't let things get to me as long as we end up making great music together in the end, which we do.

Making a Match: Serving Up Love with Sheree

Patti dishes on working with former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield and setting up tennis pro Sam Querrey. 

Season 8 of The Millionaire Matchmaker is one of the most dramatic ever. This time around, Patti Stanger is helping plenty of unlikely clients find love, from Kenya Moore and 'Chili' Thomas to Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking Mr.Right to psychic readings to one Housewives bossy ways.  

This week, she talks about finding a man for gorgeous former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield, teaching pro tennis player Sam Querrey a lesson in love. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

The week was great; Shereé Whitfield came to visit, formerly of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I was really surprised that she wasn’t as bossy as she was on the show.

Shereé seemed closed off to new love and I wasn’t sure why, it’s been awhile since she was in a relationship.

I also introduced her to James Van Praagh one of the most famous psychics and mediums in history and gave her a real clarifying reading.

My other client this week was adorable Sam Querrey. Sam is a tennis pro, he’s like 30th in the world, he’s like the guy next door and he wants true love.    

I start recruiting, when it comes to the women for Sam, I’m looking for a beautiful girl, who’s kind of flexible with her schedule, independent, and can keep herself busy.

 

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy.

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy. So I need more of an alpha man for her. And the twist this week is that every person brought in something that represented them. I think that was David’s idea.

I’ve been wanting to do the mixer on a boat for quite some time. I even got to blast an air horn on the boat. So we set up a power dating mixer.

At the end Shereé chose handsome Terry, he’s hot, successful; he even has ties to Atlanta which is really good so he can visit her.

Meanwhile, Sam chose the adorable Kylie she is a ballerina, totally into the home values thing. Sam takes Kylie out for an afternoon of archery and while I was nervous at first, it sounded kind of corny; they actually had a really good time. They went to the Melting Pot, one of my favorite places of dinner and they love each other and are hanging out.

Terry takes Shereé to Paint N’ Sit where you can actually drink wine and paint pictures, it’s kind of a cozy intimate romantic thing. I think what happened with Shereé is that she really didn’t give him a chance and the truth is that Terry is a really good guy and she needed to open up. He dressed great; this is her issue not Terry’s.

All in all, pretty good week.
