Sade and Top of Her Game Britney

Episode 8: Patti deals with two nice guys -- nice guys with lots of baggage and lots of questions.

Welcome back daters. It feels like eons since we've had Patti's pearls of wisdoms. So let's dive right back in.

Ms. Stanger's got two would-be nice guys on her hands, including a man we’ve seen before.

Do: Let the wine breathe, so to speak
Meet Mitch. He's handsome, in a Danny Bonaduce-y sort of way. He's also going to tell you everything about himself. Did you know he has three kids, that he had a girlfriend that was the love of his life, that his wife left him for a drug dealer, that he drives a Maserati full of precious kids? You know now. He's also pretty rusty, but he's ready for his Britney Spears (circa when she was on top of her game. I'll say "Stronger"). Patti wants him to tone it down a bit, a play up his good dad abilities -- because according to Patti that's what gets a girl wet. I do love a handsome DILF.

Meanwhile, Ayinde is back and looking for a Sade with an Ivy league degree. But it's possible no one is worthy of his radio-friendly love.Don't: Wear anything that cuts you at the ankles, it makes you look shorter
Patti, is not a fan of ankle boots. Let the record show.

Don't: Ask people about which biographies they read
At the mixer, Ayinde has plenty of questions -- like an SAT exam's worth of questions. Do you like radio? Are your eyes real? Ayinde's got himself to a pretty tight list. He's not interested in people that aren't different than him –- like people who haven't ready the autobiography of Malcolm X. This is not going to work out well. Patti tries to step in, but he continues with his barrage of interview questions, until finally Orange Mocha Frappuccino manages to keep him interested in Bracha enough for the big date.

Meanwhile, Mitch practices his Spanish with Tova and chooses to come with him and butcher more of the language on a real date.

It's funny to me that this mixer was so cerebral, since the men were none too swift with Patti in the pre-mixer pop quiz.

Don't: Ask your date to identify all the veggies on her plate
Mitch and Tova’s date was really precious. Between the camels and the mention of simply ironing out wrinkles, I had no fears that these two were going to work out. Ayinde and Bracha on the other hand did not seems as equally matched -- considering he immediately had her strip down into gardening clothes and had her do community service.

That we can move past, but did he really need to test her culinary cred by having her ID all the items on her plate. C'mon man. Let people eat their radishes in peace.

Needless to say Patti had some choice words for him.

Another one bites the dust. But the question is who is dating the camel?

Next week Patti pairs up some brothers, one with a prison past. . .

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.
