I have achieved most everything I have set out to do in my life. I run Haute PR, one of the top beauty and fashion PR firms in New York and Facebook's most popular PR Firm. I live in a great apartment aka "The Pink Palace." I drive a red Mercedes, although I dream of painting it pink! I have two Pomeranians, Bruiser and Paris Hilton, whom I absolutely adore! Some people think it is odd that I give Botox to my dog, but Bruiser loves it. He's 8 years old, yet he has the face of a newborn puppy!
Patti is very critical of the looks of other women. Yet I think she is doing herself a disservice by criticizing other women's appearance. Being mean and critical is a lot less attractive than giving a compliment and a smile. I am a big believer in girl power! Most of the Patti's viewers look a lot more like me than the silicone stick figures you see on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker.' It would be great for viewers to see more people who look like themselves on Bravo. Take it from me, as someone who hawks beauty products for a living; confidence is your best accessory!
With Kind Regards,
Did I watch the same show? I thought you came across as only being interested in superficial issues and extremely young. Nothing like the blogger here. I understand a lot is edited out, but when Patti asked you what you were interested in I kept hearing Matthew McConahey, I didn't hear brains, job, fun, only looks
Robin, throughout the entire show you were only talkiing about looks and your pocket book. I hope this was a wake up call and you find true love. I definitely don't think it will be a Matthew McConahey look a like unless you also start hitting the gym. Isn't it kind of wrong for you to judge on looks and accept men to accept you for that if you don't do the same? That retired cop was such a sweet heart vs Luke who joked about throwing your dogs accross the room. Are you sure you're a dog lover? That should have been a red flag of an money hungry plumber loser.
Really? I agree with the other blogger on what show was you watching Robin? You made a complete ass out of yourself & need to start living a "grown up" life! Hello Kitty is for 10 yr olds! Botox for dogs, just down right ridiculous! Pink, Pink, Pink just childish. I am embarrassed for you! Luke was so disrespectful to you & you looked like a drooling dog. Geez, this was so bad that I can't even find it comical because it was so outrageous.
I completely understand your blog here. You must have been horrified to watch yourself on the show. Editing did not cause you to behave like that and you looked so vapid and foolish. I would have felt sorry for you if it hadn't made me so sick for you. I'll hand you this, though, of all the bad dates on MM, you were definately the most entertaining. And I don't blame you for trying to do some damage control with this blog. It's needed. For sure.
Good luck to you.

Looks are all you see in men, yet apparently you don't own a mirror... U pushed aside a sweetheart for a POS that saw dollar signs that you willing to pay to show you any affection. You hunny need to check yourself before you wreck yourself (which honestly you did acting like a fool on the show)... Open your eyes miss, your not the last diet pepsi of the dessert, smarten up and start watching out for yourself otherwise men are gonna walk all over you and take it all.
Robin came across as incredibly immature, hypocritical, and self-delusional. I can't imagine that this appearance on MM is going to help her business.
The "winners" on this episode of MM were the guys who were lucky enough NOT to be picked. I can't imagine a single one of them was disappointed.
I am sure the show is edited but Robin he was putting you down and you never saw it. Even his private comments to the camera were nothing but a putdown to you. He said you were not his type until you came up with funding him a Maserati and a Ducati. You lead with your money and basically looked like a high school girl the way you were all over the guy. You can rationalize it all you want but as a man with experience, education, class, and my own money you made a total buffoon out of yourself.
Robin, Robin, Robin....from your post it's obvious that you saw EXACTLY the same Robin on the episode that the rest of us did. So now you attempt to deflect your immature behavior by saying Bravo needs to show more plus-size women? Yes, they do, but that isn't the point, is it? The question is, after seeing how you appear to others, what are you going to do about it? You run a successful company, so you can't be the bimbo that we all saw on the show. Did you really have no idea that most men are turned off by 30 somethings that act like little girls? That shallow, gold-diggers don't make for long term relationships? What I saw was Patti, who comes across as a first class bitch, trying to get you to dig deep when asking "what type of man are you looking for?" but you only spoke of looks and Matthew McConahey. That was ALL you, Robin, and it was you fawning all over Luke and continuously telling him how hot he is, how you liked his muscles, and how you wanted to have sex with him! Girl-where on earth is your self-respect? I was embarrassed for you and feel sad for you that you are so empty inside. There were several guys at the mixer who seemed great but you didn't see them because you were only looking for "the hot guy". Looks don't last forever, a good heart and a good personality do. Hot guys look for hot girls, that is an unfortunate fact of life. I am not a hot girl, either, but my husband of 25 years is quite handsome and the sweetest man I have ever known. I believe there is someone out there for everyone,and it's true that you must kiss a few frogs prior to finding your prince. Not all men are looking for thin women, but nobody wants someone you can't hold a conversation with. Find something you like...music, art, cooking, etc. and take classes and hang out where people do the same things that you are interested in and you're chances will improve. I don't think you will find any men who are into "hello kitty". It's time for Robin to put away childish things! As you saw, that made most of them cringe and I believe even Luke asked you if you were crazy. (botox for a dog IS crazy.....and cruel). Good luck finding Mr. Right.
Robin, I guess the embaressment of this episode airing nationally was not a big enough wake up call for you, you had to go and embaress yourself some more by writing this dillusional blog. Shame on you for representing the big girls of the world as desperate and needy and just plain unintelligent. Shame on you.
I agree with Bevann, everything in this blog is to the contrary of the show. Please don't blame poor editing on your disgraceful display of bad behavior. You need to grow up, money is not the end all to everything. I also agree that for you to focus on someone hitting the gym, eating right, etc., you should maybe try that for yourself. The hello kitty thing, is by far the stupidest thing I have ever seen and thank God every day that I have boys.
You seem to be smart enough to run a business and it appears you have absolutely no friends or any relationships with anyone, maybe you could take this time and rewatch this episode and learn from your mistakes. Make some friends so you will stop torturing your animals with botox.
Robin, you should be proud of your accomplishments and successes. But you need to develop some self worth for yourself. Last night's episode was so hard to watch because you looked so lonely and sad. That can be the only reason you would behave in such a way. You treated Luke like a piece of meat and I think he tried to make you undestand he was only interested in you for your money. You need to look at someone as a person and treat them with respect. Good luck!
Viewer in Florida....I agree. Robin certainly has sense enough to know that she completely humiliated herself. This blog is a way of trying to wipe at least some of the egg off her face. However, it's not working. I'd rather she just own her ridiculous behavior and say that she has since learned to love herself better.
Robin, I do wish the negative comments about your size were not said so cruelly. But your superficial ways were called out correctly by Patti. You are a beautiful and apparently accomplished woman. You do have so much going for you as you pointed out above. I wish you all the best in finding a good man who will truly accept and love you. And also for you to be wiser in appreciating a good one when you see him! Good luck!
At age 54, and a size 16, out in the dating world after the demise of a 23-year marriage, I have learned a few things about men and their expectations. First of all, even though I am successful in my career, manage a multi-million dollar family trust fund, and am attractive/cute and keep my figure proportional, there are still men out there who see me as fat, and therefore, not worth dating. I've been rejected by hot, younger men as well as older men with beer bellies, no hair, and uneducated. Then again, I've also been pursued by hot, younger AND older men, too. It's all a matter of taste. That said, to generalize a bit, men tend to believe they deserve the young, hot, supermodels types no matter what they themselves look like. I did finally find a man I considered worth dating, and we've been together for five years. And he's hot, too...a 56-year old Josh Brolin look-a-like. However, I did have to go through a lot of duds to find him.
You have to find a guy who loves you for you, no matter what your size or financial status. Luke ain't it, and never will be. I do think Anthony would have been a better date for you. And Patti didn't almost set you up with a homeless man, she rejected him and it was plainly seen on the show. What show were you watching? I don't want to come down on another woman of size, but honey, you definitely need a reality check. Watching you last night, your size was the least of your issues. Men generally don't like women to wear that much makeup, and your giggle is childish. That's what made me almost change the channel! And, I have to say this...you came off as desperate to Luke. No man wants a desperate woman. And, never, ever offer money or gifts to a man! You're just asking to be taken advantage of.
It makes me wonder if Robin watched the same show we all were watching last night. I actually had to turn away from the TV when Robin offered the date a hand job under the table, and then in the next breath offered to buy him a Maserati and a Ducati. Speaking as a plus-sized girl, I can understand how hard it is to find a date in this mini-girl focused society. HOWEVER, I would rather be alone forever than sell my love to the highest bidder. Luke was unabashed about the fact that he wanted a) financing for his business, b) a car and c) a motorcycle. Robin was more than ready to sign the check. I hope this is a wake up call to the fact that she need emotional counseling to deal with her extremely low self esteem.
I was also intrigued by the fact that Robin says looks are at the bottom of her list. Every time Patty asked her what she was looking for in a man, she mentioned ONLY looks. She never mentioned the things she SAYS she is looking for. She says she wants an intelligent man... yet she turned down the cute jewish (on her list of what she wanted) lawyer? Send him my way, please!
this was the best episode ever. I got such a good laugh. That cop was very handsome, intelligent, seemed sensitive, and into you. Why on earth did you pass him off so that you could have a good looking guy who could barely stand the sight of you? It was painful to watch, but I do have to admit, I laughed out loud many times. I hope that you see how you behaved (childish, crazy, desperate) and change your priorities and the way you think. It is much better to have a partner who is interested in YOU regardless of your size but your heart, brain and not your pocketbook. I would also want to say that you have a childish outlook, which is not so bad, but grown ups like to talk about grown up interests, not the color pink & hello kitty. Read more, watch interesting things on television and you'll have more to talk about with the opposite sex. There is somebody for everybody. I'm a big girl too but I play up my features and have a great conversation/personality which allows me to have friends and a boyfriend. I'd also say please tone down that that make-up. It was rather clownish....your complexion would like better with a lighter shade of pink and not so much eye make up. You are a pretty girl and obviously smart but the make-up and the other topics don't do it for you. Good luck and keep it moving.
You inject your dog with Botox? How can you claim to be a dog lover if you do that to yourself?? You clearly have issues with the aging process and what love is really about, be it for your animal companions or for another human being. You need some serious psychotherapy to deal with your issues.
Honestly, that was the saddest Millionaire Matchmaker I have ever saw....usually things are kinda light and funny....Patti's screaming gets so old but whatever...its funny to watch 2 people who have nothing in common try to date...
But Robin, I was soooooo sad for you...did you not realize that Luke had no intrest in you and was only intrested in what you could do for him...on the mini date he talked to you about backing his own business...and thats all he talked to you about....
I thought it was horribly rude of him to take you on a date to ride a bike...and he thought it was funny to try to scare you...and then almost ran another person over...I mean...ok want to take your date on a bikeride through the park....Luke should have been more helpful to you....
Luke was a JERK.....no doubt about it....and the things I wanted to say about your behavior are just to mean...so I will drop that entire subject....
Please Robin....try to fnd someone that would love you no matter what...someone that you would not have to buy even an ice cream cone for...someone that loves dogs...and would treat you like a princess...someone that would treat you like you deserve to be treated....
Robin made me cringe every time she was on the show. I don't think there was an actual conversation between her and Luke. When he stated "I'm kinda an a$:hole" she then responded "I love a$:holes" OMG really??!! Robin please get some self worth girl! The date you went on should of happened when you were 20 or 21 not in your 30's!! It just made you look desperate and pathetic.
Robin appeared so desperate, it was sad... however Luke was hilarious, atleast he made the whole ordeal entertaining to say the least. This was one of the best episodes yet!
Sweetie, ....chin up, smile and move on!
If I had to make public all the times that I have had a lapse in judgement, exhibited risky behavior, spoken poorly chosen words, I would want to crawl into a hole and die.
You are an intelligent, lively, ebullient, kind person. I'm certain from this experience you are on your way to recognizing all the "Lukes" in this world and why a good friend would make the "L" symbol on their forehead with their fingers to signal these guys should never be the love of your life. Have a real conversation with Patty about your dating experience since college. And listen closely as she defines what men want, how they should be treating you and what convinces them to commit. Find that true friend that will honestly and kindly provide another level of filtering to assist you in your decision-making.
We all deserve reciprocal, unencumbered, genuine love and that should be your goal.
Another millionairess watching from the sidelines.
Robin, how could you not see that Luke was nothing but a golddigger? He made that clear even on your mini date. I think you would have had a much better match with the retired police officer. But of course you were not thinking with your brain, were you? Maybe you could grow up and give him another chance. Hope Luke hasn't taken you for too much money and that you have moved on from that relationship.
I have been watching MM for a while now, and last night I cringed through the entire episode. Robin came off as clueless, vain and vapid. Luke repeatedly insulted her to her face and she lapped it up like a dog in heat. Robin clearly has low self esteem - otherwise she would not put up with that type of behavior from a man. Luke even told her "I'm an **shole" and she said fawningly, "I love **sholes." What dignified woman would say that? Patty, for the love of all things holy, please refer Robin to one of the therapists you showcase on your show. She will be better off for it.
Robin, Watching you interact with Luke and the other men was like watching an immature fourteen year old who thinks she is hot. It was really sad and panful to watch. You must be an intelligent woman if you can create a successful business for yourself, so please get some help and look at why you are stuck in such an immature and superficial mindset that makes any real intimacy impossible.
You are a hypocrite.
"Men are a package of qualities and appearance is at the bottom of my priority list. Although I met a lot of great guys at the mixer, I was disappointed with most of the guys Patti set me up with. New York City girls want a guy who is smart, fun, has a great career, and comes from a good background. Looks are last on my list."
There were plenty of great guys at that mixer that Patti tried to set you up with. You shouldn't have wasted her time if you weren't looking for love.
Robin: Did you really say to Vince: "You're too cute to be poor. We need to make you a millionaire" ??
Aye, aye, aye..... good luck woman. You're practically irredeemable.
I'm a senior-level PR/marketing professional who was cringing as I watched this episode of MM. I think that I'd have exercised substantially more caution while shooting for a widely popular cable series like MM. There's nothing wrong with Robin's interest in finding love, her fondness for Hello Kitty, or even her penchant for pink - after all, those are the unique things that make her Robin and any potential mate would need to understand and accept those qualities if considering a relationship with her. However, I am truly stunned over Robin's lack of concern for her behavior and appearance on national TV and the potential negative impact it would have on her business. There's no excuse for looking like a crayon exploded on your face if your expertise is Beauty PR (leverage the services of a beauty pro in your extensive database of contacts) as well as appearing inebriated on-air which is totally unacceptable for a PR executive, who is hired for their expertise in professionalism and diplomacy. How can you convince a high-end client that you can represent them professionally when you are unable to represent yourself with personal decorum? Unprofessional behavior is the kiss of death in the PR industry. Clients think twice about signing with a publicist who behaves with reckless abandon as they lose confidence in how you will promote their brand.
Finally, I would hope that Robin could learn from this experience to develop a mature dating mindset as well as develop reasonable expectations regarding the type of men she will attract. She doesn't have to be a size zero to attract the man of her dreams but she does need to address the issues that are preventing her from meeting the love of her life. Unfortunately, it appears that Robin is Robin's own worst enemy in this regard.
Holy hell. Trainwreck.
Patti's friend, the retired NYPD, had real potential. You missed the mark on this one, Robin.
I agree. I would have so chosen the QT and sweeeet! Didn't your mama ever tell you don't find a man you can love find a man who loves YOU!! Love takes work and looks fade so good luck and God bless you and what you do with your future.
I thought the cop was a doll!! You gotta be nuts to have ignored him, but good luck and God bless in future ventures.
As I have read these comments, I keep coming back to some of the Psychology of Robin - her behavior and motivation being the key.
First of all, Robin is a total narcississt. This probably has evolved over the years as she has become more successful, earns more money and has fewer people in her life willing to tell her, "no". If absolute power corrupts absolutely for world leaders, then the headiness of being able to do anything you want 24/7 without taking into consideration an opposing view is the equal for the more common folk.
I'm almost 42 and have been single for 12 years. I am not a millionaire, but I do have a great pension and do not have to work. I have the house I want and the car I want and plenty (for me) of disposalable income. Yet, I know if I were to meet someone and get married or cohabitate, there would have to be some changes in decorating and household choices. It is called compromise. Each day I force myself to do at least one thing I don't want to do - yesterday it was shoveling the driveway when I could have paid the neighbor kid to do it. It keeps me grounded and reminds me I can't have my own way ALL the time.
Robin seems to think that she will find a man who will embrace Hello Kitty, the color pink and girlie dogs. She is indicating that she has no plans to change her life to accomodate another person - yet because of who she is, they will conform to her world.
I know women have had to take a backseat to many of men's hobbies for generations (The example I am thinking of is a football fan glued to the TV for hours every weekend, rather than spending time with partner), but the answer is not to become more like them, it is to have "me" time and "us"time.
Robin needs some professional help. She needs a therpist who can be very subtle with confrontation to elicit change, rather than the in-your-face attitude of a reality show. No, I am not saying she is a psychopath, but if she truly wants to be married or in a successful, committed relationship some of those personality tics need to be softened.
I agree with the majority of viewers' posts. What I also noticed is that Robin doesn't know how to have a decent conversation with a man. She doesn't ask questions to find out what they are interested in and makes connections from there. Anything that they say, she just "loves". Are you serious?!?!? The signs of a gold digger were all present with Luke. Even if you had started a relationship with Luke, he would have been unhappy and definitely cheated on you from day one. Coming from another plus sized woman, you can find happiness. Recognize the signs that people show when they are not interested in you. Dont throw yourself at men because they look good. If you think they are hot, more than likelyalot of other women do too.
If you want a fling with Luke, do you. But make sure it's on his dimeI hope you find what you're looking for. Good luck
I agree with your thoughts. I don't think Robin see's pass the face. Luke is a gold digger, as Im sure all the other hot men she has approached. Plus size women are pretty, but Robin didn't show her pretty side on the show. She showed a swallow minded person. Looks over what the mind and heart says inside. I feel sorry for her cause if she doesn't realize that men who start their second sentence with "my friend and I want to start a business" or "I would like a motorcycle", and she says sure I will buy you that and help you with your business if you will LOVE me...! How wrong is that? I'm glad she didn't pick the cop cause he's too good for her. I would give anything to have a chance of going on a date with him. Enough said. Thank-you.
While I completely agree that Robin looked beyond foolish in this episode, I have grown sick of the rampant nasty comments all over the internet directed at this woman. Right after the episode aired, I must admit, I was so floored, astonished and horrified that I even left a couple myself. But enough is enough. Whether or not she was for real or was just acting or looking for free publicity, no human being deserves to get dogpiled like this.
Robin? Close the laptop and put it behind you. Lesson learned.
i watched the epoisde and i know luke was not right for robin. robin is a sweet and sexy lady she needs to be with a guy that would treat her with respect and treat her like a princess. i wish i could meet her and treat her the way she sould be treated.
Being a 30-something year old women saying you "love a**holes" is ridiculous. REAL women don't love or even like "a**holes". REAL women love REAL men who are decent, caring, and actually into them for more than just money or looks.
I will take the NYPD in a quick second!
1. I don't think most viewers look like you. I think most people are average and not too extreme either way.
2. It's CRUEL to subject your dog to unnecessary injections/discomfort. If you truly love your dog, you would love him regardless of what he looks like. It's ridiculous to think that your dog shares your ideals when it comes to happiness.
3. If you're going to have high expectations of your partners, you better damn well match your own standards. It's silly to expect them to look hot when you can't offer them the same.
4. You think Patti is critical of people's appearance? Hypocrite much? You just made fun and ridiculed men as if you were better than them? lol.
i just seen Robin episode; I likes her, young, pretty, loves pink; yes she's lil "healthy"; but its about time we see some full ladies. She may come off as blondish; but she seems adorable and fun loving. I'm no Matthew McConahey, but i'm 6'4", brown hair and blue eyes; and 42 and single and would date her in a ny sec; just cause you have lil weight doesn't mean you have no feelings; in fact i'd prefer bigger girl over the "toothpicks" cause the skinny ones are very materialistic and have no personality. Most of the fit women find themselves single later in life cause without personality, the looks will fade.
I am concerned that you are seeking validation for your own self through an image in your mindset of what kind of man you need in order for you to feel you are valued. Everyone needs validation, but your needs are so great that you have risked your own professional image on national television. It is truly painful to watch a person settle for less than they deserve because they privately think that they are not good enough and to be good enough you have to have a trophy man or woman by your side. I am concerned that if you invest in this relationship with a man who has told you he is not interested in you that time will pass and you will ultimately miss out on having the type of family you really want. Personally, I've been a big woman, a thin woman, single, married, divorced, and now happily married for fourteen years....one lesson I have learned is to never settle!
I finally watched the Robin episode - I was cringing the whole time. Robin seems like a woman in her 30's that never grew up and always got her way from the time she could crawl. Really - Hello Kitty and Palace of Pink - no matter how much money - no real man would be able to stay more than 15 minutes with Robin.
I want to know what veterinarian or plastic surgeon is accepting this woman's money and injecting her poor dog with Botox? THAT scares me more than just about any of the rest of this show. The dog cannot speak up and say NO!! Unless it is medically necessary, there is no reason on Earth to Botox your dog, and that is NOT the sign of an animal lover, than is a sign of a vain, narcissist! Surprised the Humane Society hasn't picked up on this one and investigated both owner and Botox supplier. Disgusting.
I totally agree....She says there was no men substance at the mixer...I think the makeup got in her eyes. I would have picked Anthony the retired PO in a heartbeat! Hey Patty...If Anthony is still looking, send him my way. :)
She said there were no men of substance at the mixer!...I think the makeup got in her eyes. Anthony the retired PO had total potential and adorable...I would have picked him in a NY minute!!!!. Patti, if Anthony is still looking...send him my way.
I thought this episode was hilarious! You guys took it way too seriously. That Luke guy was hilarious!! I loved the entire dinner boat/cruise scene. It was hilarious!
I feel so sorry for this girl. She obviously has some kind of mental illness, this is not normal. She needs help, not a matchmaker. She seems like the spoiled girl (brat)that inherited her money from daddy, not made it with her business. Did the business maybe came after daddy gave her some money? There are no brains on that woman to have a successful business! WOW! This part of the show was a bit painful to watch.
I liked Robin a lot and I think she is really pretty and fun and smart. I agree that people don't have to change themselves to find love. If someone is a cheater, player, liar, etc., they need to change so that they can be better human beings in general. But so many people get married. One practically has to try to avoid it I think. Okay, the joke about the dog and botox is a bit far, but I think that was more a social satirical message than anywhere close to the truth. Just because someone can be silly and goofy and ditzy doesn't mean they can't also be introspective, serious, and deep. People aren't one-dimensional. And If Robin was the societal "ideal" appearance-wise, most elements of her personality would have been characterized as "fun-loving and playful" rather than crazy. If anyone has a strong urge to "improve" anyone else via weight, makeup, etc. I think that says more about the person recommending the change than the potential object of that change.
