Not sure how many of you read the NY Post, but Thursday, they ran a piece on page 6 about the millionaires she’s been matching in this season. Let’s just say that several of them aren’t too happy with how they were portrayed, never mind the unhappy matches.
A couple say that their business is off directly related to how they appeared on the show. David Vrouble complained that Patti called him “creepy” eight times. Dude – you are creepy and you can’t tell me you aren’t. But maybe that was in the editing (yeah, right.)
On the other hand, you get what you deserve when you expose yourself on this type of “reality” show. Those who signed up wanted to be famous – and now you are. I have found that when you are in the hands of the media, you never know what they’ll choose to do with you.
I was being interviewed on the morning TV news in Boston and the anchor told me my dating advice was too obvious. Gee thanks for your opinion babe. Maybe you should try some of it – like smiling more and being nice to people. OK, I’m not bitter – it was still great press!
But sometimes things go from bad to worse. The NY Post went on to say that rumors are flying Bravo might not sign Stanger up for season six and instead may seek out a new matchmaker. (Janis Spindel – will it be you? Samantha’s Table perhaps?) Other street dirt claims Patti is shopping her show around, but that she and the network might have to duke it out over who owns the show.
In the meantime, the team is about to start shooting season five. Everything has its time and things maybe winding down for our favorite TV matchmaker. Patti, in season 5, you may want to try some of that feminine charm -just so you know you can keep your bread buttered after the season is over. You never know what can happen, but you can always rely on this old adage:-You can catch more flies with honey.
But hey, maybe you aren’t looking for flies…
