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.

Getting a Nice Guy for Rachel Uchitel

Patti teaches Rachel to ditch the uber aggressive macho men and helps tough teddy Steve go for the beauty inside.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

OK, this was a doozy of a week. My first client was Steve Lobel. Steve’s a tough guy from Brooklyn who made his money managing and producing rap artists. In fact, Steve even got me to rap a little bit this week, and I have to say -- I wasn’t that bad!

The first time he came to me, he picked a great girl and I thought everything was perfect. But a couple of months later he told me that, you know they went in separate directions. He decided she was a little too young, shocker!

My other client was Rachel Uchitel, who I know from New York from years ago. Her true love fiancé died in 9/11. She’s dated since then and had her ups and downs. She used to run expensive clubs in New York. Since then, she’s had a daughter and parted ways with her ex-husband, and she’s turning to me for help.

Look I know Rachel, so I know what she needs. She usually picks uber-aggressive guys, macho guys, and then she locks horns with them because she’s much more successful than they are. She’s what I call a shredder. She’s got an aggressive personality. She needs to open herself up and determine that it’s OK to be with a guy that treats her well, that’s nice, and that they don’t need to be domineering to be confident and strong. That’s what I think. I’m going to do my best to get her to think the same thing.

So because Steve’s a little picky, I decided to go with my two-way mirror for recruiting. That’s where the millionaire actually gets to watch as I go through perspective dates and he gets to chime in and get me to ask them questions. I thought this would be better than letting Steve out in to a mixer again to hold court. I think it was a good idea. Steve also brought his dad out from New York. So it was me, Justin, David, Dad, trying to find a perfect girl for Steve. In the end, I was down to two girls. I thought Steve should go with Masika. But Steve and his dad both picked Allie. Probably because of her giant. . . ‘personality’. No she was great, and cute, and there was nothing wrong with her. But I didn’t think she was as mature as Masika for Steve.

Rachel comes in, and I start meeting guys, and I every time I go back in to the other room, she’s shredding through them. This one’s too this, and this one’s too that, so I talk to her and I try to get some of the nice guys in front of her. Look, maybe I won’t set her up with mister kingdom come, but at least she can see that a nice guy with confidence has a place in her life. She deserves a guy who treats her well and respects her.

In the end, she chooses Brandon. Brandon’s great. He’s nice, he’s confident, handsome. He’s just the kind of guy Rachel would never have chosen on her own. I’m just so happy she’s trying him. Even if they don’t end up together forever, at least she can see what it’s like to have a good guy on a date. 

So Steve plans a date that shows his tough and teddy bear side. He takes her shooting for the first part of the date -- not for everybody -- but she seems to really enjoy it. Then he takes her on a great romantic gondola ride with a picnic basket. I think he really wanted to show her his softer side. And Allie had a great time, but here’s what’s interesting: by the end Steve says he wasn’t going to ask her out again. Not because she wasn’t great, but because he wanted someone more his equal, as in the same place in the same time.

He should’ve listened to me. Masika was a better choice for him. But here’s the important thing: Steve is learning not to just go for the booty, but to find the girl inside. I think Steve has come a long way and is learning to be picky not just about girls’ looks but about what’s under the hood of the car as well.
