Bye-Bye Bradley, Hello Kitty

Rachel agrees with Bradley on one thing (and one thing only) and spills on Robin Kassner's comeback.

Here, Kitty-Kitty...

I have a joke for you…a pink kitty and a sleazy lawyer walk into a bar. OUCH! OK so I didn’t say it was going to be funny. Yes, that’s right, this week was just purr-fectly awful. Robin “Pink Kitty” was back, and ready to buy yet another man a Ducati all while giving him a little somethin’ somethin’ under a table. Oh joy. As if that wasn’t torture enough, I thought it would be just grand to bring back Bradley the schmuck who went out with Stephanie. Double joy. 

To recap, Bradley is in his 30s, a lawyer, has dated over 400 women, and has two thousand friends on Facebook. Oh, and you know that scene in My Cousin Vinnie when… Ah, just kidding, I won’t go there. This really was quite the looney-toon week for me, so I will go straight the nitty-gritty kitty. 

How amazing did our little Miss Meow look after her make-over?  No more alley cat: she turned out to be quite the refined feline. I cannot express how proud I was of Robin for choosing two normal guys, especially my personal favorite, Joseph. Dev, of course, flaked (I could tell he was not as into it as he played… guess he wasn’t Superman after all). The real hero was Joseph, with his coming out to save the day and being so sweet. Sadly, Robin stuck to her usual ways and wanted her hunk. Ah well, it’s back to the pound for her.

Back to Bradley: he chose the sweet Nicole, who was a great pick. Of course, once again, we get another sweaty date bouncing on trampolines.  This is something I would do with my three-year-old son, not something I would do on a date!  After the jumping and sweating and racing Brad showed his true colors at dinner with his lack of compliments and lousy wit.  The only thing I have to agree with Bradley about is that you don’t need to flaunt your cash to get the girl.  Sorry Patti, I have to side with douche-boy on this one.

Bradley, remember the scene in Jerry McGuire when she says, “You had me at hello?”  Well, you had us at goodbye.  Looks like it’s back to your two thousand Facebook pals and dating another 400 women for you.

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.
