Patti Stanger Apologizes, Then Repeats Her Poisonous View of Gay Relationships to Joy Behar: VIDEO


After issuing an apology, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger appeared on Joy Behar's show last night to do damage control over what she said about gay men on Watch What Happens Live.

Unfortunately, she pretty much doubled-down on those remarks.


P_stanger Stanger says that people missed the point on WWHL, that she was offering advice on an L.A.-specific gay relationship.

“Whether you're straight or gay, that's player town. Did I say all gays? I said the gays in Los Angeles.”

Stanger then tried to explain her advocacy work on behalf of gay men:

"For five years I have put gay dating on the map. Nobody ever did this. There was no LOGO then. And I did the NoH8 campaign, I was an advocate for gay marriage, I stood up there for my gay friends. I've got more gay friends than Carter has pills."

She then negates her L.A.-specific excuse by asserting that gays "all around the country" are shallow, sex-first, relationship-later individuals, and then insults the gay community on marriage.

Says Stanger to Behar (my transcript):

"In the show when we do the mixers, the guys are passing around the telephone numbers, they're sleeping with each other, even affter the millionaire gets the date he's sleeping with the pool of people. My (gay) friend...says 'Patti this is what it's like around the country.' This is the gay community. I said, 'I'm trying to curb them.' Now this is not the lesbian. The lesbian gets involved. They move in together. They're quiet. They're at peace. But the gay men. They whip it out at eyelock. They get involved, and then they find out later whether or not they want a serious relationship. And I hope they use the privilege in New York of gay marriage, because now they have it. And a lot of gays aren't getting married, even though they have the privilege."


Stanger and Bravo both released apologies earlier in the day.

Said Stanger: “I am so sorry.  I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.”

Said Bravo: “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.”

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger Praises Non-'Queeny' Gays, Says Gays Can't Be Monogamous: VIDEO


Viewers on social networks began calling for the cancellation of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger's show following remarks on the premiere of Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live last night.

After telling one caller who asks her about monogamy that "in the gay world, it will always be open" and "there is no curbing the gay man," Stanger tells Cohen "I have tried to curb you people."

When Cohen objects, she says, "When was the last time you had a boyfriend?...You know this. You're gay."

Stanger expressed the same sentiment in 2009 on her show.

Another gay caller received this compliment from Stanger: "First of all, you're very handsome, I thought you were straight...because [you're] not queeny."

Jewish men were also targeted by Stanger: "They lie." "So I'm a non-monogamous liar," Cohen responded, half in jest.
