This season, Patti is back like you've never seen her before with a new bag of tricks to find love for her successful and high-profile clients. Her guidance leads to a surprise on-screen proposal, but can she use her expertise to help the couple seal the deal? Patti's clients and experts are a "who's who" of Hollywood ranging from music artist Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of TLC to famed television personality and designer Kristin Cavallari. Bravolebrities will also make appearances at The Millionaires Club including Reza Farahan, Caroline and Chris Manzo, Sonja Morgan and more.
"I have worked with celebs off camera for years," says Stanger. "I'm so excited to pull back the curtain and show viewers that the Hollywood elite want love just like we do!"
Patti has a dream team of new and familiar faces to help her roll up her sleeves and return to her matchmaking roots. David Cruz returns as Patti's Director of Matchmaking with new staffer Candace Smith who will serve as the Director of Recruiting.
In the season premiere, Patti is excited to work with Larry Birkhead, the father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn. Forty-one-year-old Larry is cute but shy and uncomfortable in the limelight. He has not dated for almost a decade and currently resides in his hometown in Kentucky to be with family and raise his daughter. Now that Dannielynn is eight, she is telling her dad that she's ready for him to get out there. Will Patti be able to pull shy guy Larry out of his turtle shell and make a hunter out of him? Patti's second client this week is Melyssa Ford, star of Bravo's "Blood, Sweat & Heels" and former music video vixen. This stunning 38-year-old realtor has built an empire on her sexuality, but she thinks that is all men see in her now. Can Patti help Melyssa learn to lead with her brains and not her body so that she can find a solid relationship?
"The Millionaire Matchmaker" is produced by Intuitive Entertainment and Bayonne Entertainment, Inc. with Mechelle Collins, Kevin Dill, Robert Lee, Patti Stanger, Spike Van Briesen and Robin Samuels serving as executive producers.
