Patti's Favorite Episode

Divas Live

Frank thinks his episode of 'Matchmaker' was best -- even if Paul drank a little too much.

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.

Making a Match: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
