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: 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.
