It sounds like Patti Stanger has her limits when it comes to playing cupid on the upcoming season of Million Dollar Matchmaker, revealing that there's one Real Housewives star that she won't be matching up anytime soon. During a recent panel for Million Dollar Matchmaker Season 2 attended by Bustle, Stanger dished that the person she would never help find love is none other than Real Housewives of New York cast member, Bethenny Frankel.
After being asked if there was anyone that she'd be opposed to matchmaking, Stanger noticeably singled out Frankel as the only person on the list. As for her reason behind the snub, Stanger claimed that the recently divorced mother of one is "not kind." During the sit down, she went on to detail her lingering issue with the 46-year-old Skinnygirl mogul, explaining that they were once good friends until Frankel's incident with former RHONY star, Jill Zarin. Stanger said,
"Me and Jill ... I used to date coach her and relationship counsel her 100 times a day — literally crying, screaming, didn't know what to do. And we were really good friends the three of us and what she did to Jill — threw her under the bus: 'get a hobby.'"
She continued, speaking on the topic of Frankel's former friendship and falling out with Jill and Bobby Zarin. "She told me she was leaving the message on the phone it was awful, so I said don't do that," Stanger said. "Bobby gave you the world, let you travel, paid for you, did for you. And I just feel like when people are mean to other people they don't deserve love. Sorry."
Ouch! The recent comments should certainly come as no surprise to fans of the reality circuit. Stanger and Frankel have been on-again, off-again friends with one another for quite some time now. (Bustle reached out to Frankel's rep for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.)
But with Season 2 of Million Dollar Matchmaker set to make its debut on Aug. 4, the gloves seem to be officially off for Stanger, as she appears to have reached her final breaking point with Frankel this time around.
