Sarcastic Cheban and a 'Man-diego' Bachelor

Patti discusses matching know-it-all Jonathan Cheban and Eric Berman, who's always looking for the next best girl.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

My first client this week is my friend, Jonathan Cheban, he does PR and has a bunch of companies he invests in, but most people know him as Kim Kardashian's best friend. Since he loves fashion, loves looking good, I thought, this is the perfect time in his life for me to fix him up.  Now's my chance.

Of course, I can always use the opportunity to take Jonathan down a notch. He's sarcastic and always knows it all. Well, if he knew it all, he'd have a long term girlfriend or relationship by now.

Johnathan came in and we talked it out. I don't know if I can keep him from being sarcastic and know-it-all, but maybe I can keep him quiet long enough to meet a girl who might like him for him.

My other client was from 'Man-diego,' Eric Berman. He has the typical problem I see when a guy has money and think's he's the big fish in a little pond. He's got bigger, better deal syndrome. Everyone he dates he thinks there's someone better right around the corner.

 

Because Jonathan likes a high class life style, and I wanted to spruce Eric up, me and my new team decided to throw a black tie mixer at The Marq in Hollywood. This was great. The guys were in black, my team was in tuxes and dresses, and for the girls, we got my friends at Rent the Runway to overnight us a bunch of long formal dresses. And the mixer was fabulous.

I also did a mixer a little differently this time. I didn't want those guys holding court like usual, so I had them meet the girls one on one and make their decisions for a master date afterword. I think it worked well, they're both so used to talking to crowds of women this made them stop and think. And it worked really well.

Jonathan took his date to Aventine in LA, a hot spot restaurant; cleared it out and they got to know each other and even found out she is studying to be a forensics expert. I'm glad he didn't just talk through the whole thing.

Eric had a great date with Ashley, who's also from San Diego. They went to Del Mar race track, met his horse, watched the races before going to a beautiful dinner at a restaurant he is an investor in. So the good news is he didn't bigger, better deal it; he didn't look at other women. But he also didn't go in for the big kiss. I think he could have turned this around with Ashley if he had gone in for the big kiss. I wanted him to do it and I know next time he'll seal the deal. It's not sex it's kissing and a girl needs to feel it if she's gonna like you.

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.
