Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger is reportedly looking to get former Real Housewife of New York City and current Skinnygirl mogul, Bethenny Frankel, to appear on her upcoming “celebrities only” season of Millionaire Matchmaker. Stanger, who has previously said negative things about Bethenny to the press is apparently changing her tune as she is seeking to get the Skinnygirl on her show. A “source” close to Stanger told Radar Online that
Patti is a big fan of Bethenny’s and even though Bethenny currently has a boyfriend, Patti thinks she could tremendously benefit from coming on the show.
In the past, Patti has had very negative things to say about Bethenny, going so far as to call her “a cow.” Many believed Patti’s dislike of Bethenny stung from her loyalty to BFF and former Real Housewife of New York City, Jill Zarin, who famously had a terrible fallout with Bethenny during Season 3 of RHONY that ended their once close friendship. However, Patti’s dislike of Bethenny apparently stemmed from a perceived slight at the Season 2 premiere party of RHONY where Bethenny apparently snubbed Patti.
Whether Patti has moved on from her prior grudge against Bethenny or is just singing her praises in order to get her on the show for ratings remains to be seen. It has also leaked that Patti is looking to get Bethenny’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy on the show as well. Now wouldn’t that be interesting? An episode of Millionaire Matchmaker where Patti tries to find love for these bitter exes? Obviously they wouldn’t appear together, but their scenes and quest for love could be inter-spliced.
Bethenny is not the only Real Housewife of New York City that Patti is looking to appear on her upcoming “celebs only” season, she has already filmed an episode with current Real Housewife of New York City sexpot Sonja Morgan and is hoping to get recently demoted, original Real Housewife of NYC, Ramona Singer, to get on board. Ramona is currently separated from her husband Mario, who publicly cheated on her while the two were attempting to reconcile after his prior infidelity. Many suspected that an appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker and the willingness to show herself dating on Bravo would help secure Ramona’s spot on Season 7 of The Real Housewives of NYC. However, Ramona was recently demoted to “Friend of the Housewives” status.
Do you think Bethenny and/or Jason should appear on Millionaire Matchmaker? Do you believe Patti is really “a fan” of Bethenny or just blowing spoke to try to get her on the show for ratings?
