Robin Kassner Gets Serious

Patti shares the scoop on Robin Kassner's transformation and Bradley's failure to change.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

Bradley's a lawyer and doctor who lives in an apartment in Brentwood; he has money, but he doesn't spend it on anything. He loves to talk about himself, and the ridiculous list of what he wants in a woman. He previously dated a client of mine named Stephanie, and he totally blew it.

Robin’s a previous client of mine, who on her last date got drunk, had sex too soon, and did all the wrong things. She went for the hunky plumber instead of a great cop, which was her downfall. She owns her own PR firm in New York City. She has bleached blonde hair, loves Hello Kitty, and everything she owns is pink. She’s back for one more chance at love.I met Bradley at his apartment. I’m worried that one of the reasons he’s blown it in the past is that he needs to spend a little cash on the girl, so I gave him a test, which is to by a girl something worth $500 at Tiffany’s. I met Robin at my favorite restaurant, Baja Cantina. Robin knows that she screwed up last time, and now wants to change. She’s ready for marriage and a baby. She also agrees to a full-on makeover, because the bleach needs to go. For Robin, I’m looking for sweet, career-minded guys that can cherish her, and for Bradley, I’m looking for the funny girls who can help get the attention away from himself, and put the focus back on the girl.

I needed to make sure Robin was on her best behavior, so I put a listening device in her ear, so she could listen to me if she got off track. My test for her was Anthony, the good-looking dancer. She did dance with him when he took his shirt off, but luckily, she ended up picking Joe and Dev for her mini-dates. I really liked this guy Joe for her: he was funny, he had a great personality, but for her master date, she chose Dev. Bradley started off by putting these girls to sleep, basically. After a quick chat with Destin and Rachel, he was able to talk to the girls and get to know them. He chose Nicole and Ester; for his master date, he chose Nicole.

For the first time ever, we had someone not show up for a date. No one could find Dev. We decided that since she did like Joe, that he could come to the rescue and take her on the date instead. They went on a Hollywood tour, then to dinner at the Four Seasons. Robin warmed up to him and they had great conversation, but in the end, I don’t think she went for him. Bradley took Nicole to an indoor trampoline place, which sounds like a great idea; he then took her to Primitiva for dinner, where they proceeded to talk about himself and offend her.

Robin did a good job. She’s unleashed a new side of her, which is amazing. She wants to explore her intellectual side, and see what kind of men she’s attracted to. But she and Joe didn’t go out again.

Bradley did a terrible job. He talked about himself the whole night, and instead of giving Nicole a gift, he gave her a donation, which in the end, it’s all about him again, so he’s been kicked OUT of the club.

Making a Match: Brooklyn Chooses Sizzle vs. Substance

Patti dishes on what it was like working with Thicker Than Water Brooklyn Tankard and getting a New York player to start take matchmaking seriously.

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 RHOA’s Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield to rap royalty Romeo Miller.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Brooklyn on French kissing), the bad (Amit’s beard)—and the hilarious (Patti’s New York accent!).

This week, she talks about setting up Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard and teaching this Long Island divorcee to stop looking for love at the clubs. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Brooklyn Tankard the star of Thicker Than Water is up this week. Brooklyn is pretty funny and exciting, she’s a little bit off though. She’s basically a single mom with a daughter and you know she doesn’t get to meet quality men, she really hasn’t found her equal.

My other client this week is liquor entrepreneur Amit Ram, he’s from Long Island. He’s got this awful f---ing beard on his face. Girls in the clubs like his beard, yeah, yeah in 1959 they do, not in 2015.

For those two we chose to do a Hot Seat Mixer. That means Brooklyn and Amit interview potential dates and if they don’t like someone they can kick them out of the hot seat, but if they like them, they get to stay. So it’s kind of like musical chairs.

Brooklyn goes through a bunch of guys and some of them are really awesome. I personally love Jason, he’s tall, he’s older, he’s been divorced, he has kids, he’s a very solid guy. But Brooklyn’s got her eye on Michael who's a bit younger, really hot, super sexy, has sort of a football player look -- and she can’t take her eyes off of him. Instead of going for the substance she’s going for the sizzle.

Meanwhile, Amit chose a great little petite girl named Daniella, she’s also a gym rat like him, they have a lot in common. He’s taken her on an interesting date, free-running training, you know when run and when you jump and you climb, it’s kind of extreme dating. They’re both pretty bad at it, but they love working out so they have a really great time. Then he takes her to a nice dinner at a classy place, Miceli’s.

I just hope Brooklyn took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville, because she needs a lot of work.

Brooklyn had a really nice date with Michael, they went peddle boating. But Michael didn’t ask much about Brooklyn, and this didn’t really work out for her because she likes to be the center of attention. So I don’t think that she chose well. I think it should’ve been Jason, which is the one I wanted her to go out with all along. I just hope she took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville because she needs a lot of work. I bet she'll be back again next time.
