Having been cheated on recently, “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger has a lot to say about Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who recently admitted to sending lewd photographs to women online.
“Men can dupe you,” the matchmaking reality star tells CNN, adding that his wife of less than one year, Huma Abedin, probably never saw it coming.
"(It's a) new marriage," Stanger said. "I’m sure she didn’t know."
Maria Shriver, however, is a different story, she says.
“I think Maria is awesome,” Stanger said. “But, at the end of the day, females are taught to look away. … You’ve got to look under the hood of the car. I don’t care how sexually attracted you are to your husband.”
After pairing up New York City singles last season, Stanger is back in Los Angeles filming the fifth season of her Bravo show.
The upcoming season promises cameos by celebrities like Tori Spelling, and offers a look into Stanger’s love life. The third generation matchmaker, who has always been open about her relationships - she announced her breakup with fiancé Andy Friedman via Twitter in August - even searches for a match at one of her own mixers in the new season.
And, off the small screen, the self-proclaimed “two drink max girl” has partnered with Pucker Vodka - a natural fit, she says.
Men notice what women choose to drink at the bar, says Stanger, adding that a woman who orders a vodka-soda, for example, gives off a very masculine energy.
The dating guru is currently taking her own advice - ordering “fun, flirty flavors,” like her go-to cherry espresso-flavored cocktail.
