Carson Kressley, the Millionaire Whisperer

Patti dishes on Carson Kressley helping her spoiled client get real and their wild recruitment session. 

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

My first millionaire is Ian Bernardo, a spoiled trust fund baby who has 80 million dollars coming his way. He’s trying to find a man to settle down with, but he’s so immature and childish with me that it’s no wonder he can’t find the one. I’m at my wit’s end with this Ian, so I have my old friend Carson Kressley come to have a heart to heart with him. When Ian lowers his guard a bit with Carson, he’s actually a nice guy and not a spoiled brat. I just hope I can get Ian to calm down and be himself with any of the guys I set him up with.

My other millionaire is Jeff Ogden, a former NFL wide receiver who’s tall, handsome and the owner of a successful gym. Where was he when I was single? Well, his problem is simple. Jeff dives head first into relationships, even been married twice -- once for a month, and once for a day. He’s a cliff diver. He doesn’t look before he leaps. I need to teach him that instead of diving headlong into marriage, he needs to ride the long wave of a relationship and get to know the girl and only go the distance if she’s right for him.

Recruiting for these two was a blast.  Carson stuck around to help me and my assistants, find hot gay guys who won’t take any of Ian’s bulls-- and will force him to grow up. For my NFLer Jeff, we found a whole bunch of sporty intelligent girls that are mature enough to handle a long term relationship if it’s right for him.

At the mixer, Ian is his usual spoiled trust fun baby self, but one of his mini-dates Phillip actually gives him sh-- back. And Ian picks him for his master date -- go figure! I think under Ian’s baby-ish exterior, he actually wants a guy who will keep him in check.

Meanwhile Jeff for his master date picks Melanie, who is a former master date, at a previous mixer. Melanie is great for Jeff because she’s very grounded and doesn’t want to jump headlong into a relationship without getting to know him first.

Jeff might have taken my ride the wave metaphor a little too literally as he took Melanie surfing. But Melanie enjoyed it. Different strokes for different folks.  Hopefully they’ll ride the wave all the way to marriage.

Ian took Phillip to a trapeze course which you have to see to believe. Somehow Phillip not only tolerated Ian, but he actually wants to see him again. That is crazy. I think Ian like to test people and Phillip was okay with that. Maybe he likes to be submissive. He held his own. So maybe they’re a match.

Am I best at what I do or what? I just wish I hadn’t agreed to give Ian a hug, I don’t want him to get a big head or anything.

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.
