Jeff Lewis Turned to Patti Stanger to Meet His Current Boyfriend After Gage Edward Split
The Millionaire Matchmaker has been supportive of the Flipping Out designer in recent months.
According to Patti Stanger, Jeff Lewis is still cuffed up with Scott Anderson, whom he began dating earlier this year following his split from Gage Edward. And in case you're wondering how Jeff met his match, well, you have to look no further than Patti Stanger.
"I fixed him up with his boyfriend, so he's exclusive. Scott — I did that. Cha-ching! [Jeff] called me up and said, 'I can't find anyone to date after Gage.' And he was going through hell with Gage, and I was counseling him, and I just said, 'Don't worry. I got it.' And me and my vice president, Erica [Arrechea], fixed him up. That was a while ago," she told TooFab. "They've been going out for a while."
And Patti has also counseled him on other important matters, like his penchant to tell all and vent on Radio Andy's Jeff Lewis Live. "I told him not to do it. Because the thing is, especially when you're going through a custody battle, legal stuff, I was like, 'This is not wise.' And I knew Gage had pent-up resentment and anger. I'd go out to dinner with him, and I'd see it. So I knew that this wasn't a good thing," she said.
However, she understands his tendency to overshare with the world given how he's shared his life with viewers on Flipping Out over the years. "But you know, Jeff, Bethenny [Frankel], any of the Housewives — their job is reality TV. My job [on TV on The Millionaire Matchmaker] wasn't like that. My job was the expert that fixed your love life. You saw a smidgen of my personal life. So in [Jeff's] world, his was an ensemble with Jenni, and that's what the audience wants. Same thing with Bethenny and Jill Zarin and all these people — they wanna see their personal lives... So we wanna see that world."
However, his candidness has gotten him into trouble in his post-Gage dating life as being so open hasn't been met with the warmest reception from some potential partners, which mirrors a sentiment that Patti shared with TooFab. "Is it recommended for a relationship? You really need to warn your spouse or your mate what's gonna go down, and some people just can't take it. They're too private," she said. "It'd be hard to date someone that private and be on camera like that."
Previously Jeff described his beau as "a quiet guy from Portland, Oregon" who is "really sweet." Currently Jeff is in a custody battle over his 3-year-old daughter, Monroe, with former partner Gage. The couple split up in January after 10 years together.
