I love how much of a melting pot NY is! It seems like everywhere you turn there's someone from another country or better yet another planet. This week truly proved this point. I knew this week was going to be a challenge, but I had no idea we were going to need a translator and one of those nifty vomit bags you get on airplanes for cookies that resembled what goes out rather than in.
Let's begin with a nice chilled (and I do mean chilled) glass of vodka, Elena the Russian "ice queen," Destin's lucky duck for the week. She was tall, blonde, and plastic, with an accent so thick the KGB had issues understanding her. Did I mention the torpedoes hanging out of her dress? Did you see the replays of my FIANCÉE ogling them over and over again? Yeah, I gave him trouble for that one. She looked like she walked right out of a James Bond movie, no wonder all the boys run away! She chooses tall, model types. So we gave her the perfect guys. Who wouldn't love a go-go dancer with his own bobble head action figure named Geronimo?
Moving right along, now we need something sweet to go with that vodka, but we don't want the calories, so how about we bring in Matt Siegel and his oh so delish diet cookies? I really could write a novel on Matt, and I really thought he could have been helped. His type: Matthew Broderick circa Ferris Bueller or any hot boy under 20 that can quote Woody Allen. Wait, doesn't Woody like young ones too? We needed to show Cookie Boy that he needed to lay off the boys and start dating men. We found cute little Jimmy to test him and perfect Rhett to show Matt his perfect match.
So after the mixer "Boob-zilla" chose "Go-Go Geronimo" and "Lord of the Cookies" chose Rhett. Kudos to both in that at least they had one moment of sanity and listened to us. The dates on the other hand were amazingly awful. Matt did get a point for planning a fun and creative cooking lesson/dinner for Rhett, but then went psycho on Rhett with insults. "Frankly, my dear Matt, but I don't give a damn about your cookies!" Score for Rhett, and I bet if felt great throwing that drink in Matt's face! Next time throw cookies! As for Elena and Geronimo, it seemed to be going great till Geronimo decided it was time to show off those Sex Toy Dave poll dancing lessons and show Elena some moves. First date lap dances are never a good idea. By the way, please place your bids on Ebay as the "Go-Go Geronimo" action figure is up for grabs!
Here's the wrap up. Elena I wish you the best of luck, since your son really needs a great daddy in his life. You need to head south and defrost, hide the twins, and I think your man will come your way. Matt, you really need to seek help as being 50 and dating 20 year olds is going to land you in prison where the boys would love to toss your cookies.
I saw your show a few times already and I am quite impress with it in many ways. And I am perplexed that Ms Stanger who I find absolutely beautiful and charismatic has no loving relation with a male partner in her life on T.V. I personally would like to meet Patti Stanger becuase she personofies a super social and intelligent woman as I am aware she is all throughout. So would she consider to include a rendevouz with me, a member of european nobility on her show---- So that I may know the essence and secrets of her charm and alluring ways that I am so intrigued by. And possibly to establish a friendship that may lead to a more serous relationship, even possibly a marriage if I am her type of a man to match up successfully.

I think you should have talked Elana off the cliff. Geronimo was sweet, kind, warm, and (as Elana wanted) chiseled. She even knew what he did before they went out. I think she freaked out more because of the prospect of sex, and the idea of Geronimo as a sexual being, struck her all too quickly when he did his little dance. In her speech, between her words there is something you see playing out more in men than in women: a Madonna-Whore complex (call the female version a Joseph-Satyr complex if you like). She is initially charmed by his sweet and nurturing demeanor, but when he dances (at her request no less) she's frightened by the prospect of having sex with a man that she was sizing up for co-parent not two minutes ago. Should have talked her back off that cliff. You did her a disservice.
I've got a great idea for a show! How about setting up Jackie from Thintervention & Tabitha from Tabitha's Salon Takeover? They both have personalities similar to Patty's (assertive & bitchy LOL). I think it would be quite interesting! I know I'd watch...
Love not only your purple bangs but your blog.. Thanks for straight talk on not-so-straight clients. So what’s happened to Patty’s love life? And is your fiance’ that cute spiked mohawk guy you share an office with? One other curiosity…why just millionaires for match making? I know it is great television (to see how the rich and ridiculous exist in today’s society) but what about ordinary people? BTW what is the buy-in fee Patty charges for these millionaires to disregard her expertise and disbelieve her insight? It is great to see how money really cannot buy happiness. Great blog. Keep up the great work and succinct synopsis of your job.
It really seems like Elena didn't know what a go-go dancer really did. She probably never went to that type of atmosphere and so she would have no way of knowing. Of course she would view that sort of occupation as a bad occupation for her son. Would she want her son to have that occupation later in life?
It's also funny she was viewed as intimidating when she was simply attractive and very straight-forward. I wish the best for her and her son.
