Patti spoke to Too Fab over the holiday weekend about her latest venture. "I love different colored jewels," she explained. It’s also a passion that runs in the Stanger family. "My dad was a jeweler so that's why I’m doing it," she says. "My dad’s not alive anymore but when he was he used to design jewelry for us left and right."
What can we expect from her line? Bold designs and colors—just like Patti herself. "Amethyst, all different colors, and rubies," she says, while showing off a pair of dangling purple earrings.
Patti also divulged a few tidbits about the next season of Matchmaker – kind of! "Bravo zips it," she joked about giving too much away, "I’ll get killed!" but she did dish that there are a lot of changes in store. "Every single thing you can possibly imagine has changed," Patti said. "It’s a 180 degree change...We always have douches. We always have to break the stallion of the douches so that keeps it fresh."
Another big change for the show will be Patti’s honey David Krausse. The two are happily living together and Patti gushed about new two additions in her life—David’s two teenage kids, a 14 year old girl and 16 year old boy.
"She's a cheerleader, he's on the football team," she said proudly. "He just got his license. He's afraid to drive the car! I’m like, 'What 16 year old is afraid to drive the car?' We’re actually looking for cars for him right now."
Patti admitted that she wasn’t quite so clean cut when she was growing up in Jersey. "I was a little badass," she confessed. "I was a little pothead; I’ve got to be honest. They’re into sports and athletics. They like to go to sleep early, they’re normal kids."
