A Red-Hot Night for the Millionaires

Patti is finally convinced to do a mixer for red-heads only, and is ecstatic at Dr. Chris's and Damian's results.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:Damian is an art dealer in Aspen. He has a HUGE personality. He says he loves to party, and when he parties, it’s 110%. His celebrity crush is… me. Can you believe that? But with red hair. Oh my God, am I scared or what? He wants to tone down his party side and find the right girl.

Dr. Chris is a radiologist from Los Angeles with two girls. He just got divorced a year ago. He seems a bit bitter because he tests girls. He dates 25-year-olds… like that’s gonna work! His daughters say they’re too young. His celeb crush is Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Both guys love red-heads. That’s right… it’s red-head week.

I met Damian at Café del Rey and he’s got a bottle of wine in front of him. He loves drinking and partying. His last girlfriend lasted two years and it ended because she cheated on him. He wants marriage and kids, but the partying needs to stop in order for that to happen.

When I met Dr. Chris, I confronted him about his bitterness. He shouldn’t test girls, because he’ll come off as a bitter old man. He needs to date a girl around his age that is age appropriate. He’s fine with girls who have kids; he seems really open to this.



For Damian, I’m looking for petite girls who can handle his personality and for Dr. Chris, I’m looking for mature, sassy girls who are looking to get serious. This is our first red-headed mixer. Damian immediately hits it off with Amy and they connect instantly. He also connects with Beck over their love for the movies. He chooses Amy and Beck as his mini dates; for his master date, he chooses Amy.Dr. Chris makes rounds, and finds himself choosing Amy Jane, the Marine, and Nicole, the nuclear reactor girl -- what a combo! For his master date, he chooses Amy Jane.

Damian takes Amy up to Aspen for their date; how romantic is that?! They take a gondola up the mountain and drink champagne. On the way down, they find themselves in the middle of a lightning storm. Amy is pretty scared, but all is good when they finally make it to the bottom.

Dr. Chris and Amy Jane meet up at the chocolate factory and taste all types of chocolates. That’s really romantic! Dinner arrives, and it’s at a Boston lobster truck -- Amy Jane’s favorite!  They eat, and they eat, and they dessert it, and he gives her a book that he wrote for his daughters that he published himself. She loves it!Damian and Amy hit it off and have plans to see each other again. He seems like he’s tamed his wild ways. Love connection! Dr. Chris and Amy Jane hit it out of the park -- Amy Jane said it was the greatest date she’s ever been on. They’ve been dating each other since, and they’re madly in love. Two for two, a red-headed mixer; it was an amazing week!

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.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

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.
