Patti Stanger is now trying to apologize for the offensive anti-gay comments she made, but she may have only made things worse.
After Patti appeared on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live this week and made some comments that offended both gay and Jewish men, she and Brvo have been trying to apologize.
“Bravo regrets the comments expressed by Patti Stanger on Watch What Happens Live last night,” a network spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. “Her comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused.”
“I am so sorry,” Patti said in her own statement. “I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.”
So, what did she say that made her fans so upset?
The Millionaire Matchmaker star argued with Andy that gay men could not be monogamous. “In the gay world, it will always be open. … There is no curbing the gay man,” she said. “I have tried to curb you people.”
And Patti went even further to apologize by appearing on Joy Behar‘s HLN show to try and explain her comments, but we’re not sure it made it any better.
“Whether you’re straight or gay, that’s a player town… the gays in Los Angeles… [it's] what’s going on in my show, which [has shot] from Los Angeles for the past five years. I have put gay dating on the map,” she said. “There was no Logo then, no H8 campaign. I’m an advocate for gay marriage. I have more gay friends than Carter has pills.”
“This is not the lesbian,” she added. “They get involved, move in together. They’re quiet, they’re at peace.”
Patti added, “I apologize if GLAAD was offended. I was the first person for gay marriage. I put it on the map, on television, where every network fought me, and I’m still there in the trenches.”
