Patti's Favorite Episode

The Lion King

Madison lets us know what's going on with Charlie and what he thought of Patti's assessment of his dating style.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to let Patti set you up now?
She is the best at what she does. . .and she got me "buzzed" at lunch and I said yes. LOL. I trust her also as a friend. In addition, she was willing to change the normal format and have just a few selected guys which made me feel more comfortable instead of the usual messy mixer of 20 plus.

Bravotv.com: Was Patti right? Are you a lazy lion when it comes to dating?
I am a lion, but lazy, I am not.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the guys at the mixer? Were you impressed with who Patti found?
In all honestly, even though it was my request for a smaller mixer, when I walked out and found only four guys. . .I got kind of nervous. I could tell right away only two caught my attention, so the odds weren't looking good. (See pics of the men Patti had to choose from)

Bravotv.com: What did you think of your cohort William? Did you debate switching with him for any of his guys?
William was sincere and I hope he finds love. He was very sweet. As for swap-a-roo'ing with any of his potentials, no thanks. They were picked for him for the right reasons, and not for me.

Bravotv.com: Why did you like Charlie? Was it his Patti-approved haircut?
Charlie is cool, masculine, athletic, and fun. His hair was a wild mess, haha. Patti helped that lion mane indeed, but he still needs a spritz or two. LOL.

Bravotv.com: Why did you choose Charlie for your date instead of Luciano?
I chose Charlie because I felt we had a lot in common with each other. So if we did have chemistry, we would have a lot of fun together. At the end of the day I'm looking for a partner who is not only my lover but my best friend.

Luciano is very handsome and put together but I didn't feel all the "goooodnesss."

Bravotv.com: What did you think of your date with Charlie?
My date with Charlie was the perfect day. We had beautiful scenery, great conversations, and a very relaxed afternoon topped off with a great meal. It felt like we were on a mini-vacation getting to know each other, and I really enjoyed it.

Bravotv.com: What's happening with you and Charlie now? Did you ever go on that second date?
Charlie and I have stayed in touch but I think he travels even more than I do. We've made efforts to reconnect but between our schedules it's been difficult. . .we shall see.

Bravotv.com: What did you learn from working with Patti? Have you changed the way you date at all?
Patti is a friend and she's also the best at what she does. But if she's calling me a lazy lion and I disagree -- I might have to take another look at myself. Like I said in the episode, I am just being patient, completely focused on my career, and busy. However I am also looking for love, so if that means I need to carve out more time and be more proactive when it comes to perusing that man . .then that's what I shall do, otherwise time keeps ticking; I'm not getting any younger.

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.
