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: A Bachelor's Bachelor

Patti Stanger dishes on getting dog out of of Bachelor star Jesse Kovacs and getting AJ Johnson to let go of control. 

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 Perez Hilton and Bravo's own Sheree Whitfield to musician Adam O'Rourke!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (ditching the douche), the bad (AJ standing up his second date)—and the hilarious (did Patti just say she loves porn?!). 

This week, she talks about finding the perfect match for The Bachelor's infamous Jesse Kovacs, Candace Smith's pal and perfectionist AJ Johnson and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

This was a fun week I had two clients, AJ Johnson from Chicagolicious and Jesse Kovacs -- he’s been on several versions of The Bachelor.

I’ll start with AJ: he wants the perfect partner in business, life and love. Candace tells me he is a control freak and she is not kidding. I call him Mr. Cuffington because he likes putting girls in cuffs and he wants to control their look, what they say, how they act. He is a mess, but he is a nice guy. If he continues to put the cuffs on the girls he’s going to drive down lonely lane. I have an idea of how I’m going to do this mixer, but at first I introduce AJ to a fellow stylist mister blow out himself Jonathan Anton. He is in the same business as AJ and he’s had a lot of success.

On to my other client, when I meet Jesse Kovacs he’s nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation. He just wants to meet a nice girl who likes him for who he is and isn’t pre-judging him, but I need to get deeper. He knows he’s screwed up and he’s willing to change.

Jesse Kovacs is nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation.


For both these guys I want to do a special mixer. In this mixer were going to play a little game and my clients aren’t going to be able to see the girls. This works out great and AJ whittles his choice down to beautiful pageant girl Melissa and Jesse chooses cute little Kate.

AJ takes Melissa on a very romantic day of wine tasting in Malibu, they even get to stomp around in the grapes and they ended up having dinner at Geoffrey’s overlooking the water. I hope they will see each other again and I know

AJ has learned a lot from this.

Jesse also had some success. He and Kate had a playful date go-kart racing and I think they really hit it off, we’ll see. But I think both of my guys have learned a lot about themselves and about love.
