Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger Thinks Bi’s Are Gay

patti stanger

Millionaire Matchmaker has started again on Arena TV and Patti Stanger gives out dating advice so women can hook a rich man.

Interesting is that Patti Stanger has not managed to get married herself though she is dating a mortgage broker David Krause. No idea if he is a millionaire. Her advice includes not having sex until the relationship is monogomous as well as making an effort by the guy to make it an good first date.

Patti is very opinionated and comes out with some clangers this time in an interview on Bethenney she said that bisexuals are gay.

Huffington Post reports:

One of the questions she pulled asked, “Would you ever marry a bisexual man?”

“Uh, never!” Stanger responded. “Never. Never. And if they’re bisexual, they’re gay!”

This is not the first time Stanger has questioned bisexuals.

“Do you want to marry a bisexual?” she asked a “Millionaire Matchmaker” client during Season 2 of her reality series. “Bisexual women are not the women you want to be the mother of your children.”

I suspect there are a lot of women out there who would not marry an openly bisexual guy.

Arena TV Thursday Night Schedule Is For Fashionistas

Some new shows are kicking off on Arena TV and it looks like they are keeping it all things fashion on Thursday nights.

Starting on Thursday 14 March the new series of  The Rachel Zoe Project and It’s A Brad Brad World, plus the new Bravo series Dukes of Melrose.

Here’s a bit more about the shows:

The Rachel Zoe Project follows stylist and designer, Rachel Zoe. Her empire has expanded it now includes a womenswear collection of clothing and accessories, a celebrity styling department, a digital media team and a blow-dry salon. She has new offices, a new styling assistant and a slew of new employees in both Los Angeles and New York. Of course there is the long suffering Roger and her cute kid Tyler.

To think in the first series she had about three other employees it is amazing what a reality TV show can do for a bank balance.

It’s a Brad Brad World follows stylist Brad Goreski, who used to work for Rachel, and his team of assistants as he takes over the fashion world. The series follows Brad’s journey working with A-list clients new and old, while styling magazine features, fashion lines, product campaigns and New York Fashion Week.

The best thing about Brad is his wit.

Also the Dukes of Melrose premieres and it follows renowned boutique owners, Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver, as they take viewers inside the exclusive and glamorous world of vintage couture.

Located in Hollywood, Decades is the premiere destination for high-end fashionistas looking for finely curated collections and rare finds for their next red carpet or exclusive party. In order to meet the needs of their demanding and ever growing clientele, which includes A-list actors, models, and socialites, this dynamic duo raids the closets of the best collectors in the world, bids for couture at the most prestigious auctions and seduces new clients at award galas and fundraisers.

So if you like fashion or just Bravo TV shows you might want to check these shows out.

The Rachel Zoe Project – Arena TV Thursday nights at 8.30pm

Tabatha Takes Over – Australia’s Tabatha Coffey is Back on Arena!

Australian hairstylist and salon owner, Tabatha Coffey is back with a new season of her reality show Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, now called Tabatha Takes Over! Now residing in New Jersey, Tabatha has been using her business expertise to help failing salons from closing down.

The reality show premieres on Tuesday, April 10 at 9.30pm on Arena.

This season, we will not only see her tackle hair salons, but also establishments such as bakeries, gay clubs, yoghurt shops and health spas! Tabatha mightn’t be an expert in all these industries, but her no-nonsense approach has proved successful in previous seasons.

In response to the change of direction of the show, she said: “people were constantly asking for my help but weren’t in the hairdressing industry, so it really was a natural progression for me to expand my takeovers into other small business.”

“I believe that whatever the industry, business is business, and my no bullsh*t, common sense approach really works.”

The expansion into other businesses may have occurred because they could not find enough hairdressing salons to make up a full season.

Tabatha landed her own reality series four years ago after appearing as a contestant on Bravo’s hairstyling show, Shear Genius.

Tabatha Takes Over premieres exclusively on Arena tomorrow, Tuesday, April 10 at 9.30pm with Tabatha’s first missions being Jungle Red salon in Minneapolis and Club Ripples in Long Beach, California.
