Spill the Wine

Episode 11: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor pours a glass of wine out for Frank's drunk date and for Jason's ill-fated raft trip.

Oh my, wasn't there much to learn this week from our millionaires? We learned the importance of drinking before zip-lining -- but not drinking too much after. We learned never to raft on a date. We learned that drag queens are great at bingo. Really the lessons roll on.

Do: Loosen up the dull with dance classes -- eyebrow dance clases
Patti's first millionaire was Jason -- a Ryan Seacrest type trapped in the wilds of Philadelphia. He wants a lady who can live an active lifestyle with him, and possibly make him a big more active. Patti asks him if he's a city boy or the country type and it takes him roughly 25 minutes to formulate an answer. This level of dazzling conversation skills leads Patti to send him to a dance class to loosen up.

Well his eyebrows are definitely loosened. Here's hoping.

Do: Meet your matchmaker at drag queen bingo, and give her a signed photo of you dressed as her
Oh Frank. How quickly you stole my heart. You are a man among lady-men. You do a mean Joan Rivers -- and an even more amazing Patti. You have an incredible dog and you meet Patti at drag queen bingo. There's something delightful about Frank. He seems so passionate and just open-hearted. He puts it all out there, and it seems like finding someone who could love him would be a breeze.

Don't: Get drunk
There's a reason that Patti keeps it to a two drink minimum. And the reason is the way that Paul's date with Frank shook out.

 

Let's hope he had plenty of Advil on hand in his hotel room.

Don't: Take your date on a raft.
Poor Jason. He tried to loosen up a bit, but loosening up on a raft was the worst place to do so. His date was so incredibly disinterested in getting them to dry land, and then when they got there things were epescially -- dry. The conversation flowed like water from a rock. This was not the woman to unearth Jason's inner chatter box. If only he had gotten as drunk as Paul, there might have been some conversation.

Needless to say, not the finiest week in millionaire preformance -- however, I have high hopes for  next week. Marcellus Wiley looks to be about the cutest man I've ever seen. Here's hoping Patti finds something that does indeed, "give him wood."

 

 

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.
