Leading with Money, Leading with Abs

Ep 3: Patti explains that the mistake of leading with wealth or a hot bod is that you'll get what you give.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

This week we have Jimmy G and Jim: Jimmy G has got this amazing, cut body. Face of a grandfather, but the body of a 25 year old—drop-dead gorgeous, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, very successful. His house is known as “The Museum” because he’s so OCD, and a perfectionist; nothing can be moved, everything’s clean, and that’s the way he likes his women. That’s a really hard thing to do.

And then we’ve got Jim, who is uber-successful, marries his women—there’s just one problem: he never gets a pre-nup. So he’s the mis-leader: he leads with his money, then gets pissed that they only want him for money.

Now my job is to fix them up, and our mixer this week is our traditional, state-of-the-art, Millionaire Matchmaker mixer. I wanted Jimmy G to realize that perfection is what’s blocking him from the right girl, so I brought in one of my best friends, Kara Mooney, who happens to be one of the ultimate Theta Healers in Los Angeles. Now, Theta Healing is supposed to tell you what blocks you’re dealing with on a daily basis. If we know what our blocks are, we can remove them. Kara’s going to heal him of all of his OCD-perfectionism.

Now, Jim AND Jimmy G. love Charlize Theron. Well, who wouldn’t? But I feel like something’s not quite right with Jim. Jim was married to an Asian. Now, I’m sorry, but you don’t go from Asian all the way to Caucasian in one fell swoop, ok? So Selma comes in: she’s Asian, she has a job, she’s smart, she’s intelligent, and he picks Selma at the mixer!

I tried to get Jimmy G. to pick school-teacher Mary but he picked Nasia, who happens to be German. Now that would be great if she were American-German, but she was full-on German and there was an accent problem; he couldn’t understand what she was saying. And this was going to be a disaster. I knew from the get go that he picked the wrong girl.

Jim had a great date because he took her to his comfort zone: they went to his building that he rented out from ICM, about 80,000 square feet. He created this private movie club, where you can create your own movie in his space, and they had a great, great time. Selma was pampered from head to toe. She got make-up, she got a massage, she got a fabulous dinner that Jim had ordered for her. This was a great date—clearly these two were going to fall in love.

Jim decided to do iFLY. Now, personally, iFLY is like a third, fourth date. I wouldn’t personally recommend that on the first date because it’s indoor sky-diving; it’s a little bit risky, and I know that a girl would not like this, especially if she got dressed up for the date and she didn’t know where she was going. That was his biggest mistake. But the language barrier! He took her to dinner and couldn’t even communicate, and there was no romance, and clearly neither one of them liked each other. He didn’t speak German, I don’t know why he went back to his roots; she couldn’t understand him, he couldn’t understand her. It was a disaster.

Jim followed my advice: he relaxed, he knows to sign a pre-nup, and he fell in love. He did everything I told him to do. Jimmy, on the other hand, was not exactly following my rules. He picked the wrong girl, he started to get a little perfectionist-y and OCD at the mixer, however, I do think that Kara has transformed him because he said that there are a lot of things he’s “letting slide.” So it’s going to be a process; this won’t happen in a day.

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.
