Patti Stanger, Millionaire Matchmaker


It looks like Patti Stanger broke one of her rules: Forgetting her manners.

Granted she wasn't on a date, but while on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen last night, the Millionaire Matchmaker made some anti-Semitic and anti-gay remarks while offering advice to viewers who called in with questions.

So what did she say? And what does the network and Stanger have to say about it now?

The controversy started when Patti stated that gay men have problems with monogamy and that Jewish men lie.

Although Stanger is known for being very blunt and forward on her show, she might have pushed it too far. And that's why she took to Twitter to apologize for half of the problem. "Attn male Gays: I support you & my comment on WWHL was to a LA guy who can't find commitment," Stanger tweeted. "So sorry—didn't mean to offend anyone. Love you all. X0"

Along with the informal apology, Stanger and Bravo have released a statement to GLAAD. "I am so sorry.  I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live," Patti explains.

The network followed with "Bravo regrets the comments expressed by Patti Stanger on Watch What Happens Live last night. Her comments are not representative of the network's beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused."
