I wonder how the millionaire clients feel when their episode airs and they hear what drill sargeant Patti and the two douche bags had to say about them behind their backs. They think nothing of openly mocking them, even mimicking their voice or laugh. I own a business too and I would never even think of treating my customers like that. If they are paying you money, you have to respect them.

I felt sorry for Robin but, at the same time, I blamed her for being such a ding dong. I don't understand why plus size women are offended by this show? Robin certainly didn't represent all heavy women in the country. That thought never entered my mind while I was watching this. I just don't make the connection. Stop worrying and be beautiful in your own way!

Why should Patty feel sorry, she gott alott of money from her! Up Front! Patty is ONLY in it for $$$$$! and hurting ones that don't pay! I so hope Robin takes her to court for the many issues she did to her. Robin may be overweight, But Patty just took her money and ran her mouth

I am very surprised that so many plus size woman are offended by this. We live in America, and Robins materialistic personality showcases society's look obsession. I feel as though Robin was very much delusional, and someone needs to be honest with her. Being rich has probably distorted her reality and she acted very young and was drunk the whole time. And um, she gave her dog botox and named her paris hilton!!! Luke was a big asshole, definitely, but he said he was. She was very embarrassing, and at times hard to watch. I think Patti did the right thing by trying to set her up with Anthony, only to find she would pick Luke who she ended up paying a dinner cruise for and said she wanted to have sex with him. Gross. And honestly, bigger women usually do date bigger men, and vice versa. I don't think I can get Matthew McMaughay, you have to be realistic and look into other things like their personality and character traits.

Robin was a sad sight to watch. I really wanted Patti to make her over & possibly send her to a therapist like she has done with her previous clients. I am going to stick to my inital thought that Robin may have declined these services if they had been offered to her. Also, I was pretty much digusted at the way Patti & Dustin spoke to her, they kept snickering like immature school kids. I think they used Robin as a punching bag, or a stone to kick. They more than likely don`t feel good about themselves & Robin was someone they felt was worse than them. Patti has turned into an ugly diva & her sidekicks are her low selfesteem hobbits. Now as for Robin..she was not so smart in the situation either. She sounded/acted like a mental patient. I think she just wanted to get laid by a hot guy, and nothing more. Anthony was the PERFECT choice for her, but she was being silly & stupid about the situation..She got what she asked for.

Patti, you said on Watch What Happens Live awhile back that you are NOT a "weightist" but i think that is a LIE! Here you got a chance to help a plus sized woman and you treated her like crap. I fully admit Robin was a looney tune but face it Patti, you have really gone to great lengths to present many of your looney tune MEN in the best light possible. You send them for makeovers, shopping for clothes, to talk to "therapists". You really push for them. Robin got none of that. You made fun of her makeup, instead you could have sent her for a hairstyle and makeover. I realize Robin was completely on the wrong track with her choice of date but you should not have even put that guy in the mix. If he had not been, she may well have picked the other guy (who i wouldn't mind meeting, btw) and she may have just found love. It was clear that you looked down on Robin from the moment you saw her video by the snarky comments you were making BEFORE you ever actually had met her and did not yet know that she was "whacko". For you, it was just a chance to make the big girl look as foolish as possible because from your snarky comments about her APPEARANCE, you clearly feel that plus sized people don't deserve your best effort.

I want to hook my cousin up with Anthony!

He was a sweet fuzzball and my cousin talked about him all night. Robin was something special and unique. Her loss.

Ciao for Now! N

I watched that episode. To each is own! However, knowing what took place that should have never been aired!! It is sad that we enjoy getting off on a person's misgivings. What happened to women standing up for one another. Robin, Patty and staff should be ashamed! Luke...well he said he was an, "Ass"! So he was out for whatever he could get! I am surprised that Robin allowed herself to stoop so low. However did she become a millionaire! The dog, buy him a car...this was disgusting! Where were her best friends, family?! This girl needs a dose of self esteem, a Therapist and and a hug!

WOW is all i have to say about the episode with Robin. I just saw it last night and couldn't believe how shallow this girl was. First of not sure if anyone else got this or not but that girl has no substance whatsoever I think she's riding mommy and daddy's money there is no way someone as dumb as she is can build up a million dollar company. All of you guys making comments that Patty is mean well someone has to tell it straight to this girl because clearly her family and friends aren't doing a good job. Robin if you're reading this which you're probably not because you're busy giving botox to your dog and playing sugar mama to some loser, you really need to learn to love yourself first then start looking for a man to love you for who you are. As for Luke at first I thought what a jerk saying he could look past the big curves for the right amount of money, but then i realized you know what he's pretty honest and he gave her mutliple chances to see him for what he really was a gold digger instead she just kept saying you're so hot luke you're so hot.

I watched the Haute Robin episode twice. The first time, I thought it was hilarious. I LOL'ed several times at the conversation between Robin and Luke. Luke: I'm an asshole. Robin: I love assholes. WTH???

But the second time, I felt sad. I was shocked that Robin didn't pick Anthony. And that she was offering to buy Luke all these things.

And not to defend Robin, but that's what rich older men do with young beautiful women. Except in this case the roles were switched. Robin and Luke are both users. She's using him for his looks and for sex, and he's using her for her money.

I don't think Robin's weight is the issue; it's the way she presents herself, the way she talks and carries herself. Very immature. And she is actually very pretty without all the heavy eye makeup! Hope one day she realizes it and cleans up her act and finds true love.

But, she's still crazy to give botox to her dog!!!

Really?
Really?

Dear Patti,

Everyone I know who has lived away from NY for a while comes home, gets into a car, and within minutes is back to driving like an insane New Yorker. Patti, it looks as if coming back East has similarly brought out the worst in you. Hopefully, when you go back to Lala Land there will be less screaming and cursing, with more intelligent conversation.

Speaking of which, we BBGs would really appreciate you finding more appropriate epithets for us than "lumpdies" and "chubbies." Terms like that make you sound like you're still on the playground. How about using terms such as good old "Plus-sized women" or even just BBGs?

And while we're on the topic of word usage, I would personally appreciate not hearing you use Jesus Christ and g--damn. You talk often enough about spirituality--how about not using people's spiritual leaders as curse words?

Thanks!

I totally agree! Anthony-the-retired-cop is a CATCH! If I lived closer to NYC, I'd be hunting him down! I have a BIG crush on sweet Anthony. Maybe Patti will bring him back so we can see him again.

I think Patty and her Millionaire Matchmaker staff and show may have "jumped the shark" for me, and after her first season I was a fan. This season, it appears that Patty has gotten so ridiculously critical and mean that it personally makes me sick. Patty, my mother always told me you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Why not tell people how you feel in a GENTLE, positive way than to make such awful comments. Some of the things you have said to people will create lasting damage. To make matters worse, the two non-husband and wife staff members (PUT A RING ON IT ALREADY, BABYDADDY!) now appear to be jumping on the evil train. Greaaaaaaaaaaaaat. Perhaps next season (surely Bravo will pick you up for another season) you can tone down your harshness. Otherwise, I'm sorry Patty, but I think I see and hear the sound of you jumping over the shark tank filled with all the people you've insulted and you just have barely made it over on your bike. Be careful, Patty, whatever you do in life will come back to you. Sad, because I think you really do love to match people up and have wonderful skills in that capacity, when you aren't being horrifically mean.

I agree with the man millionaire. He did pick one of the two best. I wish I could find a man like that! I'm looking forward to hearing wedding bells with the two of them. I was so embarressed for Robin. She is a pretty lady, but needs to be groomed a bit. Change your hair style and make up...less is more! Thank you.

Patti is a genious in the match maker field! I love watching the show to listen to her non-nonsense approach to love matching. My favorite episode by far is the one with Robin. Oh Lord that poor girl. She really needs to listen to you Patti. You are most likely the first person to tell her like it is. How in the world can she manage a PR firm when she can not look out for herself. I am a fashion stylist and one of my favorite type of make over is for full-figured girls. Robin definitely needs to find an honest, say it like it is, sylist to help her with her hair, makeup and attire. She has a great personality and generous heart. Patti if you ever need help in L.A. with any make over's or styling please look me up. Keep doin what your doing girl.

Well, if nothing else...Anthony (the retired cop) should have women lined up around the block of his home to date him....

He was a true gentleman and deserves to be with someone that would appreciate him...

Robin, sorry you lose....And it is a really big loss

Evidently you aren't familiar with the show or with Patti's methods. She always puts one in the mixer that is WRONG for them, just to see if they will be smart enough to pass them by. Robin's perception of herself is just not based in reality. She could be a beautiful girl, IF she cared more about what was on the inside than the superficial garbage that matters to her.

I agree Patti disrespected this woman and all plus size women in this episode. So congrats Patti...I hope your "ratings" were worth it!

Dear Patti, I just love watching the show when I can with having four kids, three who are under seven years old. I have to say that I have bot been able to watch all of the time, but today Jan. 8th I watched all three shows. That one that last show that had Robin on it. First you do not give Botox to your dog. I do not work with or around dogs but perhaps that is why the dog was very angry with Robin. Second Robin seem like she would be a very nice and down to earth type of gal, I truely hope that Robin does find out what he is really like. Because Robin and everyone out there deserves much better in life.

I totaly agree with you on the way large women were portrayed on Patti's show. I love watching the show and like you was excited to see a plus size woman on the show. Along with not liking the words used by Patti that rhyme with humpty, the worst was the way Patti talked about her not taking care of herself because she was a plus size. There are millions of plus size women that take very good care of themselves and their bodies. They are just plus size. Obviously Patti like alot of other people don't understand most plus size women. They are smart, financial responsible, have wonderful lives and families, beautiful and are able to communicate responsibly. Patti picked the one that was none of those things.

This is one of my favorite shows and I hope Patti will try again to get it right.

I cannot believe that some people found Patti to be cruel and unkind! She was just being real! Robin made herself look like a fool when talking about Hello Kitty, smiling like a rabid Chihuahua and choosing someone who clearly would never be interested in her without the money. This may not be fair, BUT to be fair, Luke was more than honest when he said that he had never been interested in someone of her stature, but could overlook it because of the money. He did not misrepresent himself, and maybe once Robin views the episode, she will wake up and smell the marshmallows! People need to get a clue and realize that Patti isnt cruel, society as a whole is cruel. Robin is an idiot, and if she is really that shallow, then she deserves Luke. Anthony is MUCH better off.

I have a question,,,,,

Why was Robin not given a makeover?????? And why was Luke allowed in the mixer if you knew she would pick him?,,,Expensive lesson,,,no? and why did you feel you needed to give her that lesson,,,that's what shrinks are for. She came to you for love,,,just asking. I have to wonder,,,was this yet another way to laugh at the plus size woman to get ratings???? I really hope I'm wrong.

Cruel to Robin? Are YOU crazy? Robin made herself look like a fool - talking about Hello Kitty, smiling like a rabid chihuahua and choosing a man that clearly would never be interested in her without the money! Patti is not cruel, society is cruel! Get a clue people.

WOW Hello Kitty girl should have gone on the date with the cop, He seemed really into her. Did you see his face when She said Luke! She just screwed her chances with him after she picked Luke. Some one should bring her to a MaryKay facial/ makeover party. To teach her the correct way to put makeup on. LESS IS MORE!!! LOL a bikeride, trying to thin her out luke? hmmmm. Birthday gifts? OMG!

On the otherside love the Man Millionar, He picked A great match!! Tiffany's... Nuf said!! :)

Hi Patti! I LOVE your show! My job is similiar to yours in that it is working for clients to find a good match, only I deal with nannies. Your show has encouraged me to be an agent. That sometimes involves telling people things they may not want to hear, but they came to me for help finding an employee that will stay with them long term and not quit a week after being hired. I watch your show for some relief in realizing that I do not talk with the craziest people on earth at times. I have been lucky in love and am married to a wonderful man. I just wanted you to know that you have helped a small business owner manage her own business with a little less nonsense!

Patti, My Boyfriend and I love you. We love the fact that you don't take anyone's crap especially those egotistical millionaires. I stop dating wealthy men because of how they treated me and others around me.

I am 41yrs old and could not meet a decent guy so I took your advice (from your shows) and now I am in a really great 3+ year relationship with a wonderful man who treats me like royalty. He has all of the qualities that you have mentioned in the past that are worth a million - being genuine, respectful, passionate, romantic (but not mushy - so not into that) and a generous nature. Being with him is like hanging out with a great friend that you are attracted to. Neither one of us is really into getting married so that type of pressure doesn't exist in our relationship.

You have such great personal style...keep up the good work - we all love you!!!

Robin's make up was unforgivable. With all that money, I'm surprised she can't pay someone to do it for her!!! I know it's mean, but dang Patti! You should have told her, and not just the cameraman during your personal interview....

I just watched the Hello Kitty episode and Anthony the cop just blew me away! Handsome, intelligent, polite, INTERESTING. A real man. What's not to love? If this man is still single, I think you should do a non-millionaire episode and I want to be on it! He's a keeper. Sign me up!

I just finished watching the Hello Kitty episode and I have to say that I am just crazy about Anthony! Intelligent, masculine, polite, adorable. This is a REAL man and I could only hope to meet a man like him one day. He's the kind of guy you keep. Lucky women in NY. Anthony, email me!!

I came here to say almost the same thing, but you said it much better than I could have! And possibly more polite. LOL I find it ironic that she is constantly doing makeovers on her millionaires, sending them to stylists, shrinks, etc, giving them dating tips. It was almost as if she only wanted to poke fun at this woman, rather than attempt to help her. If she took money from her - it was robbery.

I agree! I am glad that retired cop did not get picked, he would have been subjected to Robin passing judgement on him because he did not look like Matthew. I think the real star of that episode is the retired cop. I would like to meet him and show him that plus sized woman can be a catch and not some hello kitty freak. Who knows maybe he will be the next reality star.

I agree with you Radar. Everyone who is getting upset by this episode (I found the "sex museum" episode far more disturbing) should remember that this is a grown-ass woman who is superficial beyond belief, childish (that scene before she got on the bike, toying her hair and saying "I haven't done this since I was little" made me sick.) and she gave me the impression she wasn't going to listen to anyone. Dismissing the NYPD guy because he wasn't "hot" enough? She did him a favor. Maybe everyone should remember that Patti doesn't choose the clients who appear on the show, they are cast by Bravo. Between "eye-ball" guy and this "millionairess" (1.7 million? In Manhattan?) it's been an entertaining season. You can't make this stuff up.

I totally agree!! Anyone could tell Patti was making fun of Robin, was appalled at her size and felt she only deserved a "5" at best. Shame on you Patti for being such a Plus Size Snob!!! You wanted her to fail and show the world that over sized people don't deserve love from anyone above a "5". They should just take the scraps and be happy that someone will put up with them. If she had not been over weight, you would have tried to help her like you've helped all the other jerks on the show (with a makeover and counseling). You need to redeem yourself by having a beautiful and respectible plus size woman on the show.

ENGAGED BECAUSE OF YOU

I just wanted to let you know that because of your book, I am now engaged to a wonderful man. I have found a wonderful step dad for my two children because of your terrific advice. By the way it only took me ten months and we were ring shopping within six. I recommend this book for anyone who is single. Because I am a court reporting student, I would practice to this book every day. I recommend reading or listening a few times, there are a lot of useful tips in this book. Thank you, Patty, for changing me and my children's lives forever. Gratefully yours, Candace

Patti, I'm a new viewer. I have only watched your show a few times and really enjoyed it but.... on two of the three episodes I've seen you have made unpleasant comments regarding redheads. I would like to politely give you another perspective. (Yes, the long haired redheaded woman seemed like a nut job and you can't fix crazy with hair dye. Her problem wasn't that she was a redhead). I am a redhead and would never change the gift god gave me to land a millionaire. Only a wimpy gold digger would give in to you on that. It seems that you are suggesting that these people put on a facade to catch someone. How is that helping people find lasting love? I have the greatest husband in the world and the best thing about him is that he loves me, the real me, a redhead. My hair is actually what attracted him to me at first. Within months we were traveling the world with a Tiffany rock on my hand. We just had our first baby. If I colored my hair to land a man I would resent the fact that he didn't love me for who I really am, a proud Scotch-Irish woman. Would you make me bleach my freckles as well? Stereotyping any group of people is uncool. You will stand up for gay marriage/adoption. You will call someone out for age discrimination. Why not take a stand for all the wonderful, beautiful redheads out there? I think you would be pleasantly surprised by how many men go crazy for redheads. Maybe you should stop spreading hate. Karma baby. Telling any redhead that they should dye their hair is going to evoke a negative reaction. You are using their reaction to your rudeness to label them as difficult and a pain in the ass. What do you expect? Duh! To quote you "You will not insult me in my house". I'll just change the channel.

Robyn picked Luke! I do think on occasions Patti may be out of line, however I did not feel she was last night with Robyn. Robyn is afterall a 33 years old woman not a 13 years old hello kitty pink loving girl. She needed tough love in the worst kind of way. She was ridiculously shallow and picked Luke out of all the guys at the mixer. -- Knowing and admitting the ONLY reason she picked him was because of his looks! No sympathy for her here.

With great respect , Lucy (California)
