Patti explains why surfing is a bad date and how a redhead was invited to a mixer.

Full transcript after the jump

So this week I've got two motivational, helpful, spiritual people. One is Steve G. Jones and the other is Gary Cox. Steve is a well-known hypnotherapist, and Gary is a motivational speaker.

Both guys want their soulmate. They're in their forties. Gary wants to get married and have children, while Steve has been married and just really wants his soulmate. He doesn't need to get married again. It's going to be in interesting week. Steve is the guy who dates down. He dates the waitresses and the hairdressers, and he's getting his doctorate so she shouldn't be dating that at all. And Gary although he didn't really talk to Destin and Rachel about being Christian, he's all born-again on me. I don't really do Christian dating. I'm going to see if I can practice this, and we'll see what happens.

Recruiting session was very interesting. A lot of women for Steve, educated, over 40, in shape, really looking for their soulmate, would move to Savannah, Georgia, where he's from if they hit it off. A lot of them travel. A lot of them are on the open road. They get his lifestyle. Really good fit, he had a lot to choose from. Gary not so much about four or five showed up.

Mixer was very interesting. The girl that we thought was the most conservative who showed up turned out to be the most out there. I mean the boob-alicious. Jennier shows up and she basically wears Jessica Simpson’s dresses from two years ago with that tatas out there to china and she's all flirty myrty. And at first Gary's like, "well she’s too over the top for me." And I'm like, "Did you not ask me for Jessica Simpson, born again. That's that girl." So he kind of realized in the end, yeah I'm right, and that was probably the best pick for him. And after several mini-dates he said, “OK this is the one I’m going to go with.” And that was fine I sealed that deal.

But then had so many women to choose from, I was kind of surprised he picked a redhead. Destin's choice, which was a little odd, because I don't usually let redheads come to the mixers. But I gotta go with the client. He chose Sally

On their date, Sally and him went surfing. Not my usual date. Neither one had tried that before. It's kind of cold in the water. They had to wear wetsuits. But in walks in Alex, the fun, 23-year old, hot surf instructor that Sally can't take her eyes off of, and there goes Steve. And she was rude. Very dogmatic. Found out about his five-year daughter being given up 19 years ago and was kind of pissed off about that. Who the f—k is she? She's got red hair. She shouldn’t be talking, let alone getting a date.

Patti Turns NeNe's Bridesmaids to Brides

Patti thinks it won’t be long before these two are following their friend Nene Leakes’ lead down the aisle.

OK, greatest week ever. We have my friend NeNe Leakes out here from Atlanta and she brought me the gift that keeps on giving, great women who are looking to be set up! So I’m doing NeNe a favor this week and we’re throwing her two eligible bridesmaids a mixer to top all mixers. These girls are gonna get hooked up, and if they play their cards right, they might end up with a handsome man on their arm.

So let’s get this started. NeNe introduces me to Dawn Robinson and Diana Gowins. Diana is the mothering type. Not just a little bit, she could out-mother Mother Teresa. I get where she’s coming from, she’s an ex-nurse, she’s got three kids, she’s a nurturer. But she’s got a problem: she over-nurtures and that gives the guys the wrong signal, especially when they start dating. A man doesn’t want his date to be a mother until they have some children together. Until then, she’s his hot wife and Diana’s got to lead with the sexy and bring the mothering to the table later. That one’s easy.

Dawn is a little tougher. She’s tall, gorgeous, but also really intellectually smart, and she knows it. She’s got a high finance job, and she doesn’t need a man telling her anything. Well, there’s the problem because a man needs to at least feel like he’s worth something. So Dawn doesn’t need to play dumb, but she also doesn’t need to intimidate the guy or drive over the guy like a competitive tank commander. Alpha women are tough to change, but I can sometimes get them to put away the alpha from time to time to lure a man in. And if Dawn listens to me and tries not to compete with the guy right out of the gate, she’ll be happy she did because the guys will come to her like bees to honey.

So NeNe and I have our work cut out for us this week and we set up a recruiting so NeNe could help me pick out fine gentlemen for her friends. It was a really good idea. She knows what they like, but she’s also honest and knows what they tend to do, and what men aren’t right for them.

NeNe helped us pick the right men, and I think it was worth it because we had a great mixer. The mixer was a classy affair at The Mark and everybody had a great time. The men were respectful but they also were having fun. NeNe and I kept an eye on things, making sure Diana didn’t try to mother anybody out of the door and that Dawn kept her man eating claws inside.  Both girls did great, and by the end each had chosen a great guy, Dawn had Isaac eating out of the palm of her hand and Diana had Dante right where she wanted him staring right back at her.

And because these two are best friends, we decided to let them have a little back up. They all went out together on a double date. The guys were told to plan the date, and Isaac and Dante did great. They got Louis Van Amstel from Dancing With The Stars to give them salsa dancing lessons and then they also had a romantic rooftop winter wonderland dinner where they actually made it snow. Which in L.A. is kind of amazing.

At the end of the week, I think both girls had a really great time. Time will tell, but I think it won’t be long before these two are following their friend Nene’s lead and dancing down their own aisles. And they’ll just have me and NeNe to thank. Well, you’re welcome girls.
