Bethenny Frankel has been very unlucky in love and according to one of her former, famous friends, it’s because she doesn’t deserve it!
Disgraced Bravolebrity Patti Stanger got her start on Bravo and was an instant success, but then had a falling out with Andy Cohen, which resulted in the cancellation of her show, The Millionaire Matchmaker!
Patti tried to launch her comeback on the network where former reality stars go for their final 15-minutes of fame, WE TV. Million Dollar Matchmaker’s second season premiered in NYC on Wednesday night and Patti loved being back in the spotlight!
Despite her feud with Andy and the network, she was eager to comment on Bethenny Frankel’s love life, when asked about matching Bethenny during a Live Q&A Special before the premiere. At least Patti’s reasons for not wanting to help Bethenny find a man were personal and went beyond watching her on RHONY.
“[Bethenny] is not kind,” Patti declared without hesitation. She noted that B’s feud with Jill Zarin completely changed everything she thought about her former friend; it looks like Patti is definitely team Jill in that battle!
Patti explained, “We were really good friends, the three of us. And what she did to Jill — threw her under the bus, told her to get a hobby … it was awful. So, I said, ‘Don’t do that. [Jill’s husband] Bobby gave you the world, let you travel with him, paid for you, did [so much] for you.’ When people are mean to other people, they don’t deserve love. Sorry,” Patti harshly recalled!
Allegedly Bethenny is doing fine dating all on her own and has no need for a matchmaker, especially one like Patti!
“It’s been a great summer of dating and being free and open, and she’s meeting a lot of interesting people,” Bethenny’s friend confirmed to People.
On Wednesday night NHL player Nate Thompson appeared on RHONY with Bethenny, where they didn’t comment on the nature of their relationship, and it was definitely the elephant in the room. Although they sparked major romance rumors, Bethenny’s friend insisted that they are and have always been just friends.
“She met Nate when she was with Carole [Radziwill]. Carole knows a lot about hockey so they started talking about hockey and they all had dinner at Catch in L.A. and again one night in N.Y.C,” an insider explained. Who needs Patti when you have Carole; she’s become the ultimate RHONY matchmaker!
While she’s having fun dating there is one man that Bethenny keeps going back to, Dennis Shields! A source close to the pair says they’ve been spending a lot of time together this summer, although Bethenny’s been very clear that she doesn’t “need” a man in her life!
Patti is so rude and hypocritical; I think everyone deserves some sort of love in their life! It’s extremely unprofessional for her to say something like that, and she made herself seem jealous of Bethenny’s Bravo success; it’s not what you say, but how you say it and her tone is just nasty. I’d rather be matched by Carole any day!
