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: The Real Perez and Sexy Sonja

Patti strips Mario Lavandeira of his Perez Hilton persona and takes Sonja Morgan's love life into her own hands with a secret weapon.

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 Larry Birkhead and 'Chili' Thomas to Stephanie Pratt.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing Chilli's date), the bad (Sonja's fast-burning match Thomas)—and the hilarious (kicking Jill Zarin out!). This week, she talks about setting up RHONY's own Sonja Morgan, Perez Hilton, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

 So this week I’m setting up Perez Hilton. I met Sonja Morgan and she’s from The Real Housewives of New York City. She’s got a high profile divorce from American royalty, aka J.P. Morgan. So Sonja wants a down to earth, really strong guy with money who can travel at a moment’s notice to New York. And Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 We get down to Sonja’s guys and there’s Thomas and Kent, which end up being the last two guys that I really like. Thomas is super sexy and hot, a little overt, too much wanting to get into her pants. And then there’s Kent who’s so steady, he’s got four kids, he’s really rich, and more importantly, he’s kind of a slow burn -- whereas Thomas is a fast burn. 

 Now, we grab David and we go through the guys for Perez. It’s a blind date. So Perez and his date meet for the first time. I knew this was going to happen, everybody in the gay community, it’s such a small town, and everyong knows eachother. I was like aw, sh--. But, the good thing about it, Perez had a I really good time. I think that after Greg accepted Perez and didn’t make him feel bad about his past, and Perez realized that Greg was a really nice guy, they became friends. It wasn’t a love match, but his confidence soared. I think this was a real learning lesson.

Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 Sonja chooses Thomas at the mixer and I was kinda bummed because I knew that Thomas was all sex and all talk no action. I had something else up my sleeve. Just to protect myself. So the secret weapon I had was Rocco Dispirito. Rocco Dispirito is a good friend of mine. He just had a new cookbook out and I thought, ‘What a great way to get to know someone if you cook with them!’ So me and Rocco were on a date, and Sonja and Thomas were on a date. And before I knew it, they were flirting and touching and kissing, and I was like, ‘Oh sh--, oh sh--.’ I decided to pull a switch.

 So I pull Kent in and Sonja’s in shock because she didn’t know she was getting two dates and not just one. And of course, Sonja being the flirt and Sagittarius that she is, she just rose to the occasion. Before long, they’re on a date and Thomas is out. It was romance dujour!
