Cajuns Make Better Lovers

Episode 4: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor (and proud Louisianian) shares why Cajuns are great partners and why polo trumps paragliding.

Yes, I'm shamelessly going to promote how phenomenal Southern people are to date -- particularly us Cajun folks. I mean have you met us? We throw parties when people die. New Orleans lets you drink literally anywhere you want (streets, Sundays, etc.). We have the best food in the universe and we school when it comes to parades. We're a jubilant bunch, and who wouldn't want to spend their lives with that?

And now I digress because it wouldn't really be a recap if I didn't.

Do: Follow your own advice

I'm looking at your Ms. Stanger. This week the matchmaker herself was called out on her inability to go and sit at a bar with a book. If she's going to get back out there -- she has to get back out there. Though, doesn't it make you feel great that sometimes it's even hard for Patti to be perfect?

Don't: Go In, In, or In

For Patti's "reformed" playboy William, a full-tilt intervention was needed. Calling his mother from the dinner table was not enough (though it was effectively hilarious). It was time for the big guns -- Pat Allen. And the mission statement that we can all agree on: "Men fall in love with virtue, not vaginas." I agree, but I wonder if somewhere many, many vaginas are offended, crying that no one really loved them after all. Watch Patti's assessment of the alchemy of love again, you owe it to all those unloved vaginas.

Do: Prepare yourself for Patti

Oh honey. Let's all remind ourselves, if we are ever going to present ourselves to Patti that we will enunciate our words, and we should maybe wear our most figure flattering outfit.

 

 

Don't: Count your matches before they're hatched

William, Mr. Sly Fox, was feeling good at the mixer. Chicks were sitting on his lap (and then getting bounced by Patti). He was asking ladies when they lost their virginity.Basically he was pretty cavalier about his chances for love. So when he and Brandon both picked the same lady, he didn't even break a sweat. Of course she was going to love him more than some Southern boy. Unfortunately that was not the case. Sweet Brandon (seriously, super sweet and precious) had Jacqueline hooked from the first moment. And when William started his date on a pretty awful foot (talking about how her career was everything), things were destined for failure. So when both gents asserted that they loved Jaclyn I was ready for an old school duel. Was Patti going ot have them take their paces and then slap gloves? Instead Patti deflected to Jacqueline and she chose Brandon. Then to Lady No 2 for William, also no. And this is an important lesson folks -- don't count your dates before you're ordering your first drnk.

Don't: Bring a lady on a paraglider, or a parachute

Polo because it looks regal? Paragliding into the sunset, just no. Everything I said about being jubilant does not apply to dumb sports-related dates. Let's get active, but this isn't the X-Games. If it's not a sport where you are touching each other, it ain't a date sport.

Next week Million Dollar Hair Listing agent Madison comes by for Patti's assesment. Can he unlazy lion himself? Is that a hair joke?

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.

Patti Stanger

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.
