PATTI STANGER TAKES ON HER FIRST FEMALE CLIENT IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF BRAVO'S "THE MILLIONAIRE MATCHMAKER" ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19 AT 10 PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY�February 13, 2009-Third-generation matchmaker Patti Stanger breaks new ground as she inducts her first female millionaire in an all-new episode of Bravo's "The Millionaire Matchmaker," airing Thursday, February 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The docu-series' second season premiere last week delivered 807,000 total viewers and 581,000 adults 18-49 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, increasing the prior four-week time period average by triple digits, up 140 percent among adults 18-49 and up 125 percent among total viewers.
Patti gets an unexpected surprise when Chelsea tells her about a new client, who just happens to be a millionairess. Heidi is beautiful and the CEO of a high-end fashion label called Young, Fabulous and Broke. At first Patti is hesitant to take her on as a client. "I don't know about this, I'm not a fan of millionairesses. I feel like they're never satisfied," she says. But after learning her client is 41 and a single mother who has encountered "ageism" in the Los Angeles dating scene, Patti softens and makes it her mission to find her a mate. "I am sick and tired of men being ageist," she says. "You can't tell me that women over 40 are not drop dead gorgeous." Patti's other client is the tall, dark and handsome Bill, a 45-year-old hotel executive. Although he's charming, Bill is also an ageist. He wants children, and as such, has no interest in dating a woman even close to his own age because "her eggs are dried up." But when Heidi and Bill meet at the mixer Patti arranged, will the sparks fly? What will happen when Bill finds out Heidi's age?
