Her guidance leads to a surprise on-screen proposal, but can she use her expertise to help the couple seal the deal? Ah, the suspense is killing me, and I don’t even own a television set!
Patti’s clients and experts are the who’s who of Hollywood: Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC, designer Kristin Cavallari, Reza Farahan, Caroline and Chris Manzo, and Sonja Morgan.
I don’t know anty of these people and I’m gettin the goose bumps!
“I have worked with celebs off camera for years, ” says Stanger in a statement. “I’m so excited to pull back the curtain and show viewers that the Hollywood elite want love just like we do!”
Here’s some sage advice from Patti on meeting people at holiday parties:
“Honestly, if your wine glass isn’t refreshed yet, a gentleman should walk over and ask, ‘Can I get you another?'”
OK, just make sure he’s not coming back with a roofie, so you won’t find yourself in some sdtrange bed without any recollections and without your panties. I’m just saying…
“You want to know if he’s chivalrous, and the chivalry is: ‘Can I get you an hors d’oeurve? Can I get you a drink? Can I get you a chair?'” according to Patty.
Yeah, sure, stuff me up, ply me with carbs, I’ll be yours…
Patty also has sage stuff on drinking, so pay attention, because you’ll want to repeat it in your next AA meeting:
If you drink hard alcohol, it’s not going to have the same effect as wine. With tequila, you want to take your top off and dance on the table. Not appropriate. But wine mellows you out. You get more intellectual and more romantic—you want to have more conversation. It lets you sit back and assess the situation, and you don’t look like a dumb, idiot party girl.
Patty was born and grew up in Short Hills, New Jersey, after Ira and Rhoda Stanger adopted her, raised her as a Jew. And, you should know, Mom, Rhoda — also a matchmaker.
The circle is complete.
