Let the Man Be the Man on a Date

Patti does her best to match Alpha Angela and Strong Shonda, but both dates manage to go awry.

See Patti's full transcript, after the jump.Angela’s an alpha female, and Shonda’s a wounded bird with a super-hero syndrome. Angela’s a blogger from Boca Raton, Florida. She’s a mother of one son, but she’s friends with her ex-husband, Greg, and we know that she loves short men. Shonda’s from Columbus, Ohio. She founded rockstarbikini.com, an online bikini contest. A few years ago, she won the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival Fitness Contest, and she loves Donald Trump, including his hair.

I met Angela for tea at a café. She loves Ari Gold, because she thinks that he’s so powerful, and she thinks that that’s what she needs. Well, we’ll see about that.

Shonda’s admits she was cheated on by a guy, and that they never once talked about marriage or living together. She’s ready for her Donald Trump.

We had the mixer at STK in Hollywood for these ladies, so it would be a little more intimate and they would get to know the guys better.

Angela was turned off by Gage’s overwhelming personality, although… he was the Ari Gold of the group. She liked Jeff the lawyer instead. Shonda looked like she was hitting it off with Scott, but she chose John, the British Donald Trump type. Angela, who’s way too alpha, met Jeff at a skeet shooting range. She kicked his ass by hitting more skeets than he did. She even said “I’m the man" at one point. For dinner, they went off to the Charleston, where Jeff tried to fit into the appropriate male role. But once he did, once again, Angela was the dominant one.

Shonda met her beau, John, at Mixology. They made a few drinks and tried to get to know one another. For dinner they went to Off Vine.

Angela did an ok job. She was alpha on the date and took control, and she learned that she needs an alpha male. Shonda did a pretty good job herself. John was a Donald-Trump-type kind of a guy that had a lot to talk about, but ultimately, they had no chemistry.

I hope these girls learned a lot from their experience.

Making a Match: Making Jill (and Ally) Happy

Patti finds the perfect match to suit both Ally and Jill's needs and tries to take the pink away from her Prince.

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 Perez Hilton to RHONY's own Sonja Morgan.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing and saving Chilli's date), the bad (pink speedos)—and the hilarious (again, pink speedos). This week, she talks about setting up Jill Zarin's daughter Ally, matching a real Prince, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Read the full transcription below:

I summer with my good friend Jill Zarin every year. She spent four seasons on The Real Housewives of New York and just asked me to set up her daughter Ally. Ally is like my niece, so how could I say no? Now she's out of school, starting working and living her own life, which is important because until now she's been in the shadow of her mom, overprotective. It's now time for Ally to cut the cord and just be Ally. Ally's 22, cute, sweet and intelligent. I told her I could set her up, but it has to be the guy she wants and not what Jill wants.

My other client this week is a German prince, an adopted prince, and his stepmother happens to be Zsa Zsa Gabor. Oo la la! The first thing I notice is he leads with his princely ways. He's got a sash and medals, not to mention pink pants. That's gotta go. I start with some rules: don't tell the girls he's a prince, don't wear anything pink -- definitely straight -- that's not rugged. Instead of being the Prince I told him to be, "Yo, Max, from New Jersey!" Surely I can make him a man. Will it work? We'll see.

Because Ally can use a little confidence, I set up a meeting with Kristin Cavalarri. She's the perfect big sister that Ally can relate to. She's around the same age, grew up on reality TV and can advise her.


So it's recruiting time and I'm shakin' it up! After Candace and David have chosen appropriate daters, they get dressed to the nines and we have a party while Ally is upstairs watching. Jill and I go around the groups of guys and vet the daters. In the end, Ally chose James, a good choice. And he's Jewish -- that'll make Jill happy.

I told her I could set her up, but it has to be the guy she wants and not what Jill wants.


Now it's time to find a curvy blonde princess for the prince. I go around to all the groups of girls and make selections. I end up with four hottie patotties. The prince meets with all four girls and gets to know them. But ultimately Emily was the girl to teach the prince some masculine moves!

For their date, James and Ally met at the Wildlife Learning Center -- they get to know each other, check out some of the animals. Afterwards they have some stiff drinks as the bar.

Meanwhile the prince makes a grand entrance on the beach for his date. He comes out of the water  in a pink speedo. He did bring champagne, though. Emily showed him some yoga moves. Then they had a lovely conversation on a yacht. He told her his secret. She barely batted an eye. But she was up for the swim. When the prince moved in for a kiss, he was rejected. Maybe it was the pink speedo, or the flabby belly, maybe next time, no prince.

Both my couples learned a lot. But I will be following up with Ally. I really want her to end up with a great guy.
