'Matchmaker' Patti Stanger: 'Men can dupe you'

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.

    I actually do like Patti, but her club seems to be nothing more than a pimp service for people with to much money. All the male millionaires want the same barbie doll match be it blond or brunette. She even tells the girls that they need to sell it with what they got.

    Look close ..... this is nothing more than an advertisement for Pucker Vodka.

    She is a typical – money hungry – female and does not know the first thing about love.

    Soooooo if she is a matchmaker how come she is single...HUUUHHH? I know why she is single because, she needs to wash her mouth out with soap or, better yet he needs to put hung in her mouth to shut her up. A piece of me and that would shut her up for good.

    I do like Patti and I watch her show....a lot of what she says about men and dating is true. But I have rarely seen any shows where a "true" match is made....one that truly lasts....which proves my point even more: your chances in the dating world are no more successful on a reality show with the help of a professional matchmaker than in the real world.....comes down to pure luck and timing....true story.....just saying....

    "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." – What a load of crap. I have nothing against Patti, but advertising that your service has a 99% success rate is screwing the pooch when only one or two episodes prove such claims.
