As a Las Vegas Strip headliner in a steady relationship for 18 years, I felt like I was ready for something new. My relationship had turned into more of a business partnership and I was ready to put myself out there. I surround myself with "Divas," so I was looking for someone a bit low-key, friendly, but not too crazy.
I came up with the date idea to zip line down Fremont Street before heading to dinner at my favorite restaurant Carluccio's for a good Italian meal. It's the first restaurant I ate at when I came to Vegas. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit terrified to zip line. But I wanted to do something edgy and exciting, and something I just knew neither one of us would have done before. I mean really, not everyone has zip lined down Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas before.
The date started out great -– dinner was fantastic, but Paul sure enjoyed his wine. Patti says Paul broke a major rule by drinking too much. I think he just wanted to have a good time. Overall, the date was fun, but I think Paul has a few things he needs to work through before he’s ready for the dating world. I would definitely have recommended that he take Patti's advice on the show -- trust me, it will make for a much better dating experience and a much more successful relationship. There's a reason she's the "matchmaker."
Dressing up as Patti was a blast. As you may know, I dress up and impersonate Joan Rivers in my show, but dressing up as Patti was an absolute blast. I always enjoy impersonating strong women, and she was fantastic.
I am a huge fan of the show, and maybe I am biased, but this episode was my very favorite to watch. Destin and Rachel actually came out to Vegas to celebrate the premiere and we watched it with a bunch of family and friends. The episode was funny, it was endearing -- it had all the elements of a great TV show. Who knows, maybe Patti will invite me back to be her sidekick in the future?
Until then, you can see me in my show, Divas Las Vegas at Imperial Palace on the Las Vegas Strip.
