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: Beauty, Bikinis and Breaking The Rules

Patti dishes on helping Julissa Bermudez pick the right guys and why she almost had to throw Adam O'Rourke out!

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 Dina Lohan and Bravo's own Sonja Morgan to rap legend Romeo Miller, aka Lil' Romeo!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking the right guy to calling vs. texting. Hint: real men call. 

This week, she talks about finding Mr. Right for gorgeous TV host Julissa Bermudez, teaching rocker Adam O'Rourke a lesson in starting over and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

I had really interesting clients this week. First up Julissa Bermudez, she is a TV host and she’s been on tons of networks all over the place she is drop dead gorgeous. I don’t know why she’s coming to me to find a relationship but I figure out right away it’s not about meeting the guy, it’s about meeting the right guy.

She is starting to realize that while the alpha guys are hot, they don’t really want her for her. She’s got to shake the habit of going with these alpha guys so I set her up with Tiffany Haddish who’s a famous comedian. She’s Arsenio’s sidekick, a no nonsense girl. She’s hot, she dates in Hollywood but she is not afraid to tell it how it is. Julissa gets it, Tiffany is smart.

My other client this week is Adam O'Rourke. He’s gotten to the point where he wanted to settle down and he wasn’t meeting any quality women, so he pretends to be a tough guy when he’s actually really nice. And I’m actually happy to set him up.

So we do some recruiting at the Leica Gallery in West Hollywood. A museum or a gallery is a great way to find young, sophisticated singles and we size up a bunch of guys and girls for a classy dinner mixer with Julissa and Adam.

The next day we introduce Julissa to four great guys and Adam to four great girls. They all sit down at the private club and get to know each other.

Julissa ends up picking a great guy named Sam; he’s a successful real estate entrepreneur. He is handsome but laidback and isn’t the guy who needs to be alpha all the time. If Julissa can get to like a guy like that, then she might be on her way to true love.

Meanwhile, Adam chooses a beautiful blonde named Hailey. She and Adam certainly have chemistry so I am happy with this choice.

Sam takes Julissa out to paint some pottery, which is actually a cool move, they get to talk and do something creative together. But then he also brings the romance with drinks and dinner at the Georgian at the beautiful Santa Monica Hotel. Julissa gets to feel cherished; I hope she likes the feeling.

Meanwhile, Adam makes his first mistake of the week; he invites Hailey back to his house. Usually I’d kick him out of the club for things like this, but it turns out he heard her say she’s never had her man cook for her and he wanted to fulfill her wish. Okay, I’ll let him slide on this one. He was a gentleman even when she put on her bikini to sunbathe in the backyard. Good job, Adam.

At the end I think Julissa learned to go for the guy who lets her be the star and Adam got a lesson in starting over. I hope they both take what they learned into the future. We will see.
