Intuition Working Overtime

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.

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.
