Millionaire Matchmaker Ruined Millionaire's Lives, They Claim

| Filed under: Reality TV

According to the millionaire's themselves.

As the fourth season of Millionaire Matchmaker came to a close this week, former millionaires who asked Patti Stanger to find them love have come forward to criticize Patti's practices and how they were portrayed on the show.

Basically, they're all still whining they can't get dates.

Like millionaire Jason Teich, for example. He claims the show pegged him as a "tough-talking, heavy drinking guy from Brooklyn," and hasn't been able to land a date since them. Jason complained, "Producers fed me drinks and then Patti yelled at me for being an alcoholic."

For some, their "personas" on the show have not only slowed down their love life, but also their business practices. Like Long Island divorce lawyer Doug Kepanis. He says because he was described as a "divorce attorney with an ugly bod" on the show, he's been dropped as a legal expert from TruTV and a lot of his female clients have turn their back on him. Obviously, this has everything to do with his supposed "ugly bod" and not his rather sexist remarks.

But the people who really seem to be having a problem with Patti isn't the men she's tried to help, but the network who's stood behind her. Sources report the show's fifth season is about to start filming, but it may end up being the last if Patti doesn't reign in her "antics." An insider explains:

"She thinks they aren't giving her the respect she deserves and she's telling friends that she's shopping her show to other networks. But Bravo is tired of her antics, insists it owns 'Millionaire Matchmaker' and wants to continue the show with a different matchmaker."

They've done it with the Housewives, they can do it with you honey. Don't kid yourself into thinking you're irreplaceable. You must not know about B! (that stand for Bravo, get it?)

When a Bravo rep was reached for comment, they confirmed that the fifth season was underway, but confessed "it is too early to say anything about Season 6."

That's not a good sign, BB! Better clean up your act in the months to come if you wish to stay in the reality biz.

    whats funny is that this Doug Kepanis advertises on his site that he was on the show!!!!



  2. 2

    I watch religiously and love it. Patty makes the show, if she leaves I'll follow her to whatever network. Cannot wait for more new episodes, Patty is painfully honest and it's awesome!

    Every time I see this show , I think to myself, are you kidding? No matter the client, she has not learned the golden rule. THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!!!!! And of course that's not true, but it should be applied. She is so rude, she talks badly on camera in front of millions of viewers about these paying clients,throws them out of her office and insults them , REALLY?????? She has gained a lot of weight and should not always be wearing those short outfits, who does she think shes fooling with her mini dresses. But the worst is her tacky costume jewelery. I do not think she is a nice person and her set ups seem to be big failures, so why does she have a show? OH

    I think Patti can be downright mean, and she crosses the line a lot. However, I think the guys who are complaining about how they are portrayed are just pissed that they were exposed for who they are. The producers "fed me drinks"? Really? Did they tell you not to worry because they wouldn't be filming? Did they tie your hands behind your back and dump Grey Goose down your throat? Doubt it. And come on - nobody would lose a gig because Patti said he had an ugly bod. She does not have that much power.

    is that fred gwinn in drag ?

    Patti is a pig! She should take her own advice, starting with getting a makeover. IF she were the great matchmaker she claims she is, why isn't she herself in a long term relationship? Why doesn't she have any successful matches?



  7. 7

    When I watch the show all you hear is Patti telling people to be their self and act "grown up" however; she is so superficial as she is always changing the way people act,look, dress, etc. She is rude and I bet it's hard taking advice on your looks from someone who looks like her….SMH



  8. 8

    She has gone from someone who tells it like it is to being downright mean. I can't stand watching that show anymore. If she's got SUCH a great success rate, why is it every episode ends in failure? And if looks mean so much, wtf is she doing with those freak show assistants of hers?

    Patti understands the game.
    She gives BRAVO a "show", just like the wives we hate the most, on the Housewives series.
    The more buzz, the better.
    Love her or hate her, Patti delivers.
    -
    I love her. My husband hates everything on BRAVO.

    Hey Perez have your or your writers ever heard of SPELL CHECK ?????????
    Come on your grammar sucks !

    i think shes a bitch, it bothers me when she actually looks people in the eye and tell them they HAVE to dye their hair or the guy wont like you and like dumbasses the girls actually go and do it. Trust me if hair color is the biggest problem when it comes to finding a partner then america has a problem.



  12. 12

    That's Katy Perry without makeup.



  13. 13

    Patti's behavior is abhorrent but the show is successful for just that reason. Americans want "over the top" and Patti provides it. She's rude, hypocritical and unlikeable. That's what the viewers want.



  14. 14

    Its funny people even want to take advice from someone that can't even keep a relationship herself. I do believe the show will portray people the way they want,but at the same time,its what reality tv can do to you.

    The show is hurtful and Patty is awful! Every season she seems to get more and more out of control. The intro says she is here to try and help people find love, but the things she says are so extreme and cruel I think she has probably helped a few people to an overdose. This last season there were a few that I felt so so so sorry for. They should never have been accepted as "clients" It would be nice to see a show that is about a real matchmaker and not one who hurls insults and is a vile human being.



  16. 16

    She is getting so full of herself it's out of control! Seems she loves the 'get the fu*k out of my office' way to much. If these people were so together they wouldn't need her, ie no business, no show. She is paid to tolerate and school these people, I do believe she negatively affects their lives post production.
    She needs to go back and watch early seasons to remind her why we started watching in the 1st place, then go back to being a respectable matchmaker!
    She is not hooking ANYONE up on that show???



  17. 17

    It's time for her to go, she's become full of herself and her gig is up…no longer entertaining watching her spout her fat mouth off. BUH BYE lady.
