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: The Real Perez and Sexy Sonja

Patti strips Mario Lavandeira of his Perez Hilton persona and takes Sonja Morgan's love life into her own hands with a secret weapon.

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 Larry Birkhead and 'Chili' Thomas to Stephanie Pratt.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing Chilli's date), the bad (Sonja's fast-burning match Thomas)—and the hilarious (kicking Jill Zarin out!). This week, she talks about setting up RHONY's own Sonja Morgan, Perez Hilton, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

 So this week I’m setting up Perez Hilton. I met Sonja Morgan and she’s from The Real Housewives of New York City. She’s got a high profile divorce from American royalty, aka J.P. Morgan. So Sonja wants a down to earth, really strong guy with money who can travel at a moment’s notice to New York. And Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 We get down to Sonja’s guys and there’s Thomas and Kent, which end up being the last two guys that I really like. Thomas is super sexy and hot, a little overt, too much wanting to get into her pants. And then there’s Kent who’s so steady, he’s got four kids, he’s really rich, and more importantly, he’s kind of a slow burn -- whereas Thomas is a fast burn. 

 Now, we grab David and we go through the guys for Perez. It’s a blind date. So Perez and his date meet for the first time. I knew this was going to happen, everybody in the gay community, it’s such a small town, and everyong knows eachother. I was like aw, sh--. But, the good thing about it, Perez had a I really good time. I think that after Greg accepted Perez and didn’t make him feel bad about his past, and Perez realized that Greg was a really nice guy, they became friends. It wasn’t a love match, but his confidence soared. I think this was a real learning lesson.

Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 Sonja chooses Thomas at the mixer and I was kinda bummed because I knew that Thomas was all sex and all talk no action. I had something else up my sleeve. Just to protect myself. So the secret weapon I had was Rocco Dispirito. Rocco Dispirito is a good friend of mine. He just had a new cookbook out and I thought, ‘What a great way to get to know someone if you cook with them!’ So me and Rocco were on a date, and Sonja and Thomas were on a date. And before I knew it, they were flirting and touching and kissing, and I was like, ‘Oh sh--, oh sh--.’ I decided to pull a switch.

 So I pull Kent in and Sonja’s in shock because she didn’t know she was getting two dates and not just one. And of course, Sonja being the flirt and Sagittarius that she is, she just rose to the occasion. Before long, they’re on a date and Thomas is out. It was romance dujour!
