Teddy Bears and Dr. Frankensteins

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.

Making a Match: Serving Up Love with Sheree

Patti dishes on working with former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield and setting up tennis pro Sam Querrey. 

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 Kenya Moore and 'Chili' Thomas to Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking Mr.Right to psychic readings to one Housewives bossy ways.  

This week, she talks about finding a man for gorgeous former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield, teaching pro tennis player Sam Querrey a lesson in love. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

The week was great; Shereé Whitfield came to visit, formerly of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I was really surprised that she wasn’t as bossy as she was on the show.

Shereé seemed closed off to new love and I wasn’t sure why, it’s been awhile since she was in a relationship.

I also introduced her to James Van Praagh one of the most famous psychics and mediums in history and gave her a real clarifying reading.

My other client this week was adorable Sam Querrey. Sam is a tennis pro, he’s like 30th in the world, he’s like the guy next door and he wants true love.    

I start recruiting, when it comes to the women for Sam, I’m looking for a beautiful girl, who’s kind of flexible with her schedule, independent, and can keep herself busy.

 

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy.

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy. So I need more of an alpha man for her. And the twist this week is that every person brought in something that represented them. I think that was David’s idea.

I’ve been wanting to do the mixer on a boat for quite some time. I even got to blast an air horn on the boat. So we set up a power dating mixer.

At the end Shereé chose handsome Terry, he’s hot, successful; he even has ties to Atlanta which is really good so he can visit her.

Meanwhile, Sam chose the adorable Kylie she is a ballerina, totally into the home values thing. Sam takes Kylie out for an afternoon of archery and while I was nervous at first, it sounded kind of corny; they actually had a really good time. They went to the Melting Pot, one of my favorite places of dinner and they love each other and are hanging out.

Terry takes Shereé to Paint N’ Sit where you can actually drink wine and paint pictures, it’s kind of a cozy intimate romantic thing. I think what happened with Shereé is that she really didn’t give him a chance and the truth is that Terry is a really good guy and she needed to open up. He dressed great; this is her issue not Terry’s.

All in all, pretty good week.
