Cast Blog: #MATCHMAKER

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: Finding Romeo's Juliet

Patti talks working with rap royalty Romeo Miller, aka Lil' Romeo, and helping him master the love game. 

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 Larry Birkhead to Bravo's own Real Atlanta Housewife Sheree Whitfield!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive blog. She'll tackle everything from the good (Lil' Romeo's all grown up!), the bad (a shirtless first date?!) and the hilarious (Patti talks using tongue!). 

This week, she talks about finding love for Master P's son and rapper Romeo Miller, teaching us all about first dating kiss etiquette and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Okay this week I had a really fun client, 25 year old Romeo Miller. He comes from rap royalty, he’s the son of Mater P. and he was famous as a little kid, you probably remember him as Lil’ Romeo. Well, Lil’ Romi is grown up and is looking for love.

Romeo has got a posse of friends and they all go out together at the clubs and they hid on all these women and I think if I can break him of the friend’s habit then I may be able to help him find a partner. He’s young and he’s got a lot of bad habits.

Lil’ Romi is grown up and is looking for love.

The next thing we do is a figure out a mixer.I sit on one side of him and Shaun sits on the other, and we help him go through various different women. He ends up with two really great women to go out with.

He’s got this nice, intelligent, beautiful woman and he takes her to body painting. Right -- it’s like he just wants to see her in a bikini. She’s a nice girl and she’s into him but he won’t kiss her, and she kisses him. Eh, not a good date.

I meet with Romeo and tell him he’s got to court a girl, woo a girl, not just put himself in a situation where they come to him.

He goes on a second date and this time I think he does a lot better. He takes Mica for a romantic dinner, they have some conversation, and he’s being a gentleman, courting her, doing the right thing.

He comes in to talk to me the next day and he’s learned a lot. He didn’t end up hitting it off with Mica, but I think he finally knows what he wants.

He remembers Taliah the girl that got away, the perfect girl from the mixer. So we call Taliah and she comes down to the office, I see the love connection and I immediately say it’s okay for them to go on a date but I want him to kiss her right away. It’s the perfect date for him.
