Bravotv.com: What was the reaction like after the show aired? Did you have a lot of folks approaching you after the show?

The reaction after the show was crazy. I get stopped on the street 20 times a day. I have people following me around Bloomingdale's. I walk into a packed restaurant and they clear the best table in the house for me. Viewers come up to me and start screaming my name and want to take pictures with me. People keep asking me when my new song "Fantasy" will be out. It's droppin' on iTunes in 2 days and is on CD Baby right now.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised at how much people seemed drawn to your date/story?

I was very surprised at how many people seemed drawn to me. I think the reason I resonated with so many people is that I am unafraid to be myself. There are so many people out there who are ashamed of who they are. They feel like they need to get extreme plastic surgery and need to act phony to impress people. To see me running Haute PR, Facebook's most popular public relations firm, living in a pink apartment, and loving myself for who I am, was refreshing for people.

I think people realized from seeing me on TV that you can be yourself, forge your own path, and have an amazing life. You don't to change who you are to be attractive and successful.Audrey Hebpurn said, "Happy girls are the prettiest girls." My message for viewers is: be yourself because you are beautiful!

I'm so touched by all of the people who've reached out to me who told me that seeing me on TV changed their lives. I had a fan from Australia move to New York to be near me. I inspired a fan to quit her dead-end job and go to fashion school. I inspired a guy to paint his apartment pink. My confident, fun attitude inspired people to be their best and live their dreams.

Bravotv.com: What did you learn from working with Patti? Did you change the way you date at all? Do you look for different things in a mate?

I learned that Hello Kitty does not get a hard c--k. I had never heard that before. Other than that I did not learn much. I didn't change the way I date at all. I was a pretty great date to begin with. I am the total opposite of Patti, and I am just fine with that. I learned that when negative people are trying to bring you down, the best thing to do is smile and give them back sweetness and light. Nobody has the power to bring you down unless you let them.

Bravotv.com: What's your current dating situation like? Are you seeing anyone special?

I've been dating a former hockey player named Jason for the last three months. We met at a party in Murray Hill. He's seriously cute and treats me like gold. He's really good with my dogs, Bruiser and Paris Hilton. We spent this summer in the Hamptons and fell in love with it so much that we are building a house there.

Bravotv.com: Any especially memorable dates since the show aired? Did you date anyone that saw you on the show?

I've had some cool dates since the show aired, but unfortunately, no more sophisticated dinner cruises. I try not to date guys who saw me on the show. Most of them are wannabe actors. The guy I am dating now has never heard of Bravo and only watches ESPN and MSG. He's more of a hockey/football type.

Bravotv.com: What are you currently up to? Are you still in NYC? Still in the same apartment? How’s your dogs?

I just recorded a new single called "Fantasy" available on CD Baby. I have a new TV show in development. I still live in the Pink Palace and am building a house in the Hamptons with a Hello Kitty theme. It will be the first Hello Kitty house in America! Bruiser and Paris are still happy smiley, doggy dogs. I'm having a birthday party in September with my friend and client Whitney Thompson, who won America's Next Top Model. I am still busy running Haute PR, Number 1 for Beauty PR according to Google. I am busy living the life of my dreams and if I can do, so can you!

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.
