Patti Stanger

Patti dishes on working with Denise Richards' dad and updates us on his status with Sherilee.

on Jan 29, 20130

So, Irv Richards is Denise Richards’ Dad. I love when the kids fix up the parents; this is my favorite friggin’ episode. Irv comes in: I’ve known Irv, I adore Irv, but Irv is like a fish out of water (out of practice). He was madly in love with the love of his life (he’s a widower). Who better than me to fix up my friend’s Dad? I’m so excited!

That being said, we also have Stephanie. Stephanie was my mirror: she dates down, she has douchebag-magnet syndrome, where men who are not good come after her. And she takes them in, like a wounded bird on the road, she cleans them up, and feeds them, she dresses them, she gives them money. She gives them everything, and then they don’t leave. So I completely get that we need to break her of this bad habit.

Hi Patty, I don't know if Irv is still looking for his soul mate, but if he is, the perfect candidate is sitting here right now. I am intelligent, well educated, and I love dogs. I can look like a princess when I dress up, but I can also get down and dirty. I, too, love gardening. I lost my husband 3 years ago, and I'm turning 60 this month (but i really dont look or feel it). I want to date but it is really scary. I actually found Irv attractive years ago when Denise had her reality show, so this match seems almost made in heaven. So, if he's still looking, let me know. If not....I'll keep my heart open.

Patty,  I really like Irv a lot and think that I should be given a chance to date him.  All the women that were behind the mirror didn't have kids.  I have older kids and lots of nieces and nephews and love kids and dogs.  If it does not work out with Sherrilee then you need to contact me.  Thanks, look forward to hearing from you!!!

Hi Patty, I loved the story of Irv.  This inspired me to write to you.  Betty in Austin, TX.  I have followed you for a long time and love how you match people up.  Hope you can give me some advice.

Hi Patty,I am a woman of 75 years.  I still desire to love and be loved.  What advice do you have for a woman like me?  I am attractive and in good health.  I can send you a picture if you'd like.

Ms Patti! Yes your little millionaress' voice was annoying, but if you think Kim Kardashian would kill her over it, I guess her sisters would be next, and let's make it a murder-suicide while we're at it, because they all have voices I could throw shoes at the TV over! All the bimbets in Lala land sound alike!

Hi Patti, this was your best show ever.  The story of Irv was so heart warming.  It was so nice to have the program end on such an optimistic and loving note.

 

Stephanie's story, however, was depressing!  She seems like a really down-to-earth beautiful person.  I really liked her, but that date of hers was horrible.  Why is her luck so bad.  Let me know if she'd consider me.  I'm a bit older, 46, but I have a great career and am looking for the one and she seemed like she was it!  Wow!

Patti...if things don't work out with Sherrilee, please give me a call.  I am a great match for him. :)

Patty, you must know that men who have lost a wife, who they considered the love of their life, soulmate and friend are hard if not impossible to have a meaningful relationship with a woman after the loss. I wasn't clear on what he expectected, whether he just wanted a friend, or was he looking for another mate...to do what, be second best to his ideal best?? I would not want to date a man with that kind of magical past relationship....i imagine this guy comparing mentally everything a date would do...and i would not get over that in order to enjoy myself...guys like Ir, need to say, "i was so lucky, why try to find perfection a second time" , and just learn to keep relationships very surface...no intimacy unless the date understands, nothingmore serious would ensue..the thought of him marrying again makes me squeamish...... The chick with the voice....sorry, but I couldn't take it and had to turn the channel when she started her segment...either that was a nose job or she was breathing helium, either way, i would rather listen to my cats claws on a chalkboard...thee has to be something that can be done to fix that issue...some of the dialect is practiced...such as when she says "thunk yewl"... there is no such country that speaks that accent, rather it is simply "rich girl speak" and grates on nerves, especially when it is not a 12 yr old girl speaking it...at 30, it is quite scary....

I really liked Irv. So glad things worked out for him. I thought that I was going to have to throw my hat in the ring for a bit. LOL.. way to go Irv.

this was a great episode.  How can you NOT love Irv??  I was watching the show and found myself smiling every time Irv and Sherilee were on.  That had to be your best match and millionaire ever.  Hey, maybe Bravo should give them their own show. LOL

Age is number and you can find love at any age.  I am not a fan of Denise Richards but her Dad seemed like such a teddy bear!

I also loved this episode, and I am glad to see you "fixing Up" older folks.  I personally thought Irv was a catch.  I hope things work out for him. It is really difficult finding someone great later in life, but you have such a gift, Patti!    Wish you'd come to NC and hook me up.  xo

Personally, I would send Stephanie to a voice coach. Her voice can be irritating. She seems like a very nice person and I'd hate to see the voice as something turning away a good guy for her...

I think this is one of the best shows so far!!! I'm so tired of seeing just all the little chick-a-dees.......finally an older man looking for an older lady. My life got better in my 40's and I think you really need to show more with older couples and maybe give some hope out here.

When I started dating after my divorce things have changed in the last 25 years and not in a good way. In your words and mine I think 95% of men are douchebags!!!! I always have my running shoes ready.............. Great show tonight.

OH Patti,  Pick Me ... PICK ME!!  Seriously - if Irv is still looking, PICK ME!!

 @FlutterBy As for Irv, I think he would make a better husband than a divorced man.  He knows what it's like to be happy.  No negative baggage.  A kind man that wants to love and be loved again.  I have to disagree with you FlutterBy......I'm 75 years old and have known widowers.  I just didn't fall in love and felt they deserved more.  At this age, we still want the physical love believe it or not.  You have to love a man's body to get to his soul.

 you have made me laugh flutterby....thunk yewl..I was hijacked and forced to live in Kentucky..don't know how many times I have heard bad grammer..I just look with amazement and ask did they actually go to school....lol... the girl with the helium voice no doubt taught herself to talk like a Valley girl..is she from a kids cartoon?...I agree having a love of your life and then life after that is hard to compare...most men who have a type in mind aren't thinking of a real relationship..what happens when they go looking and what they think they want are not what will make them happy...I know this from my own situation..after twenty years of marriage.. having raised his 2 and 3  we adopted... my ex is always looking moving from woman to woman and having had the best he will keep trying to fill my shoes...he loves the internet and what comes out of there can be scarey as well..if people were only real to everyone else then our world wouldn't be filled with so  many shallow people....today his current woman FB me that she has known and loved him for 37 years..so what was I and his first wife all about?.we together only make up for 32 years..why didn't he marry her then?..oh well thank you for the laugh..Deb

 @DianeLS  Leave that girl alone!! all of you for that matter. There are plenty of people who speak somewhat nasally. That is just mean to keep bashing her voice.

 @dkm952  @FlutterBy Please tell me that these two are the same person so that I can believe there's one less individual abusing elipses. Also, FlutterBy, what do you suggest for widows and widowers? They only get one chance at love and then they're done? What if they were widowed at 25 and did not get the chance to have children? 

I think it's wonderful that Irv is not only willing but excited to find love again. Isn't it a possibility that if his marriage was so strong, that he'd want to recapture at least some of that? And wouldn't his wife want him to be that happy again? Come on ladies, don't project your own insecurities on others.

I'm so glad you posted bachisholm.  You speak for all of us older folks that still want to feel love.  Mentally and physically.  Our minds are still very much alive as is our bodies.  Maybe not like when we were in our 20's but trust me, very much alive.  Thanks for your reply...
