Courtney Kerr and a Swedish Peacock

Patti is thrilled that she could help her Dallas single and colorful Swede find a match -- in each other!

 

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

This week was a doozy. I almost had to fire Justin. I found out he got a number from one of my daters.

But our two clients were great this week! The first one was Stefan Dahlqvist. He owns Moods of Norway, one of the most popular clothing brands in Scandinavia. I met him at his store. His stuff is so colorful, pinks and oranges.

I brought David to make sure he wasn’t gay. He’s not. He’s actually sort of into guy stuff, has a motorcycle which cancels out the pink limo. He likes the outdoors, camping. I called him the peacock, but told him he had to channel his inner falcon to attract the kind of woman he wanted. I think he got it.

My other client was Courtney Kerr from Dallas. She hosts a morning talk show, is a fashion blogger and she was featured on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas. She’s still single. It’s always an on again, off again with Matt.

So I took this as a chance to try to set her up. Courtney had one really great relationship. She got broken up on New Year’s Eve during the countdown -- can you believe that? So I had to convince her to stop thinking about the past and about Matt.

But she also likes to take control and take over, and no guy wants that. You sometimes have to let the man be the man. I think she heard me.

So we had a beautiful mixer at my favorite place, Tru in Hollywood. I decided that both Courtney and Stefan could benefit from starting the mixer blindfolded! They couldn’t be distracted by how the daters looked at first. They just had to get to know them by talking, just talking, nothing else but talking. Soon they had their favorites picked out and they got to take a look and pick their mini-dates.

Something was going on with Courtney and Stefan.  That’s right, it was happening, under my roof. He was really making her laugh and I think she really liked him. But the two of them went on their mini dates anyway, and got to meet two other people each.

In the end though, my instinct was quite right. Each of them liked each other so much that Stefan asked Courtney out on the master date and she said yes!

I knew he was in really good shape when he immediately took her to a Country Western bar, hired a teacher to teach him to two-step. Then he had a gorgeous dinner prepared in a private home, overlooking the hills, where they could talk and get to know each other. He even had famous Scandinavian singer serenade them.

Finally he took her home, dropped her off in the pink limo. I really think she liked him. He kept talking about inviting her to Norway, but he’s in L.A. and she’s in Dallas. We’ll see what happens.

Making a Match: The Real Perez and Sexy Sonja

Patti strips Mario Lavandeira of his Perez Hilton persona and takes Sonja Morgan's love life into her own hands with a secret weapon.

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 Larry Birkhead and 'Chili' Thomas to Stephanie Pratt.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing Chilli's date), the bad (Sonja's fast-burning match Thomas)—and the hilarious (kicking Jill Zarin out!). This week, she talks about setting up RHONY's own Sonja Morgan, Perez Hilton, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

 So this week I’m setting up Perez Hilton. I met Sonja Morgan and she’s from The Real Housewives of New York City. She’s got a high profile divorce from American royalty, aka J.P. Morgan. So Sonja wants a down to earth, really strong guy with money who can travel at a moment’s notice to New York. And Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 We get down to Sonja’s guys and there’s Thomas and Kent, which end up being the last two guys that I really like. Thomas is super sexy and hot, a little overt, too much wanting to get into her pants. And then there’s Kent who’s so steady, he’s got four kids, he’s really rich, and more importantly, he’s kind of a slow burn -- whereas Thomas is a fast burn. 

 Now, we grab David and we go through the guys for Perez. It’s a blind date. So Perez and his date meet for the first time. I knew this was going to happen, everybody in the gay community, it’s such a small town, and everyong knows eachother. I was like aw, sh--. But, the good thing about it, Perez had a I really good time. I think that after Greg accepted Perez and didn’t make him feel bad about his past, and Perez realized that Greg was a really nice guy, they became friends. It wasn’t a love match, but his confidence soared. I think this was a real learning lesson.

Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 Sonja chooses Thomas at the mixer and I was kinda bummed because I knew that Thomas was all sex and all talk no action. I had something else up my sleeve. Just to protect myself. So the secret weapon I had was Rocco Dispirito. Rocco Dispirito is a good friend of mine. He just had a new cookbook out and I thought, ‘What a great way to get to know someone if you cook with them!’ So me and Rocco were on a date, and Sonja and Thomas were on a date. And before I knew it, they were flirting and touching and kissing, and I was like, ‘Oh sh--, oh sh--.’ I decided to pull a switch.

 So I pull Kent in and Sonja’s in shock because she didn’t know she was getting two dates and not just one. And of course, Sonja being the flirt and Sagittarius that she is, she just rose to the occasion. Before long, they’re on a date and Thomas is out. It was romance dujour!
