Matchmaker Patti Stanger says she knows how to find true love. The third generation matchmaker, known for her reality TV shows The Millionaire Matchmaker and Million Dollar Matchmaker, says she helps her clients “work through their issues and find love.”
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Dr. Phil, please solve our conflict!
On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, she asks for help with her “toughest case,” 23-year-old Courtney Stodden.
“There is a part of her that reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, that she could go down a dark road like that,” Patti says to Dr. Phil about Stodden. “She was 16 and her mom let her marry a 50-year-old man who was a famous actor at the time, but there was no parental guidance here. And that’s kind of like a heavy case for me.”
When Courtney joins Dr. Phil and Patti, Dr. Phil asks her, “You say you tend to attract men who are egotistical and want arm candy. So how do you get past that?”
“Well, we tried to get her to be more modest, which actually didn’t work on the date,” Patti says. “She took her clothes off on the date, and jumped in the pool and went crazy. And I’m not on the date. I can’t supervise.”
