This will be the year I meet Mr. Right, if Patti Stanger has her way.
I met the star-prenuer of the reality series, The Millionaire Matchmaker, last night at the Bebe store in New York City’s Columbus Circle, where she was signing copies of her new book, Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate.
As I sipped champagne and nibbled goodies from The Works Catering (a not-for-profit organization benefiting New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS), Patti declared, "You’re cute, are you single? I’ve got to fix you up." My mother will be thrilled!
Patti’s show returns Thursday, Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and she promised this will be a season we won’t want to miss. "Watch the first episode because there’s a twist," she teased. "Paul comes back, who got engaged. I can’t tell you what happens, but you’re going to be blown away."
It may finally be the time for Patti to become one of her own success stories. "My boyfriend and I, this year, we’ve been talking about getting married," she confessed.
When Mr. Right does come around, there’s one song he should play to get a gal in the mood, according to Robin Thicke.
I got to watch the sultry singer perform an intimate set for 1-800-Flowers.com’s evening of rhythm and romance Wednesday night on Manhattan’s west side.
"This one," he said with a grin as his hit single "Lost Without U," blared through the speakers. That one stays in major rotation on my MP3!
I asked Robin what show he’d love to guest star on.
"The Grammys," he chuckled. Hopefully he’ll get his wish and present at the 51st Grammy Awards, airing Sunday, Feb. 8 on CBS. All the more reason for me to tune in that night.
One thing I will be tuning in for is Oxygen’s syndicated launch of America’s Next Top Model.
Our newest OK! addition, Will Reiter, and I hit the network’s launch party at Gotham Hall Monday night, and mingled with glamazons from seasons past.
Ms. ANTM herself, Tyra Banks, was in attendance, but she must have her crew on lockdown. Even the chatty Ms. J. Alexander wasn’t giving up much about the new season, including its international destination.
"It’s a really hot one, very. I’m not going to tell you, but that location is major. You will love it, trust me."
Ms. J. did give it up when it came to describing his look for cycle 12. "Just think: studious." C’est tres chic!
America’s Next Top Model, the "Obsessed" marathon, begins Sunday, Jan. 18 at 11 a.m. on Oxygen.
Until next week, fellow Fanatics!
