The model executive and the cliff jumper

Well, to start with Heinz, he was kind of shocking to me. Heinz is basically the type of guy who's been around the block. He always has hotties all over him, because he's in the modeling industry. He owns an office here in L.A. and an office in N.Y. Any woman who wants to date him and wants to get her foot in the door can, and he can date 25 year olds until his eyes go. He's one of those men who, the older he gets, the younger ones will still keep calling because they want in the industry. Casting couch central! I'm thinking, "Ok that's great".He starts bragging to me how he wants older, refined women. He complained a bit -- he's a little bit of a complainer, a little bit of a Yenta. I was really surprised that had I not thrown Marcella in at the 11th hour, I don't think he would have picked anyone. I was really happy that he picked the girl I chose out of all of them, because she was my front runner. Hopefully he is going to learn that women in their late 30s and up are really the market to go after. He can't complain that he needs younger women who are brilliant, because 25 year olds are not brilliant. He has to get out of his own way. He's been divorced twice, he has kids, and he's approaching early 60s. It's time to push or get off the pot and stop running after young children, sleeping with them, and then having to deal with the aftermath when they are not as intelligent as he is. Of course they can't be, they are young enough to be his daughter! It's a joke.

As far as Paul goes, this was a shock and a half. This was kind of interesting -- Paul picked the hot, 21 year old cheerleader, right off the Christian boat, from one of the universities. I was thinking to myself, this is so not a fit. Once his religion sets in, and once her way of thinking sets in, it's just going to be a clash. He wanted this little hottie and I pushed him to pick Cidney because Chelsea had picked Cidney in advance. The prettiest girl in the bunch was Cidney, she was the front runner all the way, and she was Jewish. She was the only Jewish girl to pose for Playboy. What could be better? He didn't want her! Then I kept begging and begging and finally he goes out with her. What happens? I get a phone call that they're ENGAGED on the first date! Now I wasn't so sure about this, I'm one of those, "If you're a cliff jumper, and you jump off the cliff, you're going to fall splat on your ass!" type of people. I don't believe in it, but they are still engaged today.

Obviously my intuition was working overtime because I really felt she was right for him. I did something right with the help of Chelsea, who also pushed him to go out with her. I did feel there was a little flirting on his part with Chelsea, however. But, he needs to be with a Jewish girl because he's pretty religious, and its hard to convert someone to their way of thinking. He celebrates Shabbat, and on their second date they went to Cidney's house for Shabbat. So, I think this was a good fit over all. When you have religion come into play, where you are fixing people up, you have to take that into account right after looks. Looks first, religion second, or nothing will work out.

This social mixer took place at The Roosevelt Hotel and was the best event we had the whole season. I thought the place was absolutely beautiful, I thought the cocktails were wonderful, I thought the way everybody were mingling and getting along was fantastic. We had an outside and indoor fabulous suite, Destin did a spectacular job arranging it and taking care of the waiting girls. I love that hip and ultra modern vibe. That's what our company is all about, always staying on the cutting edge of that next thing. I thought this totally fit our personality.
