Ep 2: Patti gives us the scoop on her two Millionaires, who couldn't have been more different.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

This week we have Steve and Alex. Steve is from Queens. He’s got a hip-hop vibe, but he’s really a teddy bear inside. Alex is kind of Mr. Frankenstein. He does plastic surgery for a living but also does it on his girlfriends and his ex-wives.

I went to Steve in his house: he has gold records hanging everywhere, he has gold chains hanging off his neck, he’s wearing an Adidas sweatshirt; he’s totally the music manager experience. For Alex it’s not the same. I go to his house; he lives in a sterile castle. There’s not one thing out of place. He’s “perfection” in the plastic surgery department, which means that he likes to redo his girlfriends, his ex-wives, anyone he dates.

For Steve I’m looking for the Khourtney Kardashian look alike—you know the little cute little spinner type, a little attitude, dark hair, really smoldering skin. But for Alex, he’s looking for the Kate Beckinsale type. Hopefully he won’t want to re-do her face, because Kate’ face is perfect. At the mixer Steve looked amazing, he’s dressed great, and he picked Jessica and Lisa, but it was Jessica who won out in the end. At the mixer, Alex chose Courtney and Valerie, but in the end, Valerie won, and that was a great choice for him.

Steve took Jessica, his date, to a DJ academy and a really fabulous romantic Chinese dinner, and then there was this big kiss at the end, and they did fabulously; both people liked each other. So Alex’s date didn’t go as well. He took her to Café Azul, which is fantastic, but then he took her back to his home, which is a no-no of the Club. He brought her back for some dessert and brought in this crazy-ass girl to deliver it; turned out it was one of his ex-girlfriends- and she was running around scantily clad! This was a test, he says. A test for what? Valerie was heartbroken, because who would do this to someone on the first date!?

Steve did great. He found a girl who really loves his Queens-tough-teddy-bear side, and really wants to spend the rest of her life with him. But Alex? No so much. Alex did a horrible job. He not only brought another girl on the date, which is a no-no EVER, but he brought in a butt cake, which is so inappropriate. First of all, who brings another girl on a date? Second of all, who gives someone a butt cake? There is no help for this guy.

Patti Turns NeNe's Bridesmaids to Brides

Patti thinks it won’t be long before these two are following their friend Nene Leakes’ lead down the aisle.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

OK, greatest week ever. We have my friend NeNe Leakes out here from Atlanta and she brought me the gift that keeps on giving, great women who are looking to be set up! So I’m doing NeNe a favor this week and we’re throwing her two eligible bridesmaids a mixer to top all mixers. These girls are gonna get hooked up, and if they play their cards right, they might end up with a handsome man on their arm.

So let’s get this started. NeNe introduces me to Dawn Robinson and Diana Gowins. Diana is the mothering type. Not just a little bit, she could out-mother Mother Teresa. I get where she’s coming from, she’s an ex-nurse, she’s got three kids, she’s a nurturer. But she’s got a problem: she over-nurtures and that gives the guys the wrong signal, especially when they start dating. A man doesn’t want his date to be a mother until they have some children together. Until then, she’s his hot wife and Diana’s got to lead with the sexy and bring the mothering to the table later. That one’s easy.

Dawn is a little tougher. She’s tall, gorgeous, but also really intellectually smart, and she knows it. She’s got a high finance job, and she doesn’t need a man telling her anything. Well, there’s the problem because a man needs to at least feel like he’s worth something. So Dawn doesn’t need to play dumb, but she also doesn’t need to intimidate the guy or drive over the guy like a competitive tank commander. Alpha women are tough to change, but I can sometimes get them to put away the alpha from time to time to lure a man in. And if Dawn listens to me and tries not to compete with the guy right out of the gate, she’ll be happy she did because the guys will come to her like bees to honey.

So NeNe and I have our work cut out for us this week and we set up a recruiting so NeNe could help me pick out fine gentlemen for her friends. It was a really good idea. She knows what they like, but she’s also honest and knows what they tend to do, and what men aren’t right for them.

NeNe helped us pick the right men, and I think it was worth it because we had a great mixer. The mixer was a classy affair at The Mark and everybody had a great time. The men were respectful but they also were having fun. NeNe and I kept an eye on things, making sure Diana didn’t try to mother anybody out of the door and that Dawn kept her man eating claws inside.  Both girls did great, and by the end each had chosen a great guy, Dawn had Isaac eating out of the palm of her hand and Diana had Dante right where she wanted him staring right back at her.

And because these two are best friends, we decided to let them have a little back up. They all went out together on a double date. The guys were told to plan the date, and Isaac and Dante did great. They got Louis Van Amstel from Dancing With The Stars to give them salsa dancing lessons and then they also had a romantic rooftop winter wonderland dinner where they actually made it snow. Which in L.A. is kind of amazing.

At the end of the week, I think both girls had a really great time. Time will tell, but I think it won’t be long before these two are following their friend Nene’s lead and dancing down their own aisles. And they’ll just have me and NeNe to thank. Well, you’re welcome girls.
