Is the Millionaire Matchmaker Out of a Job?
Patti Stanger Allegedly Strikes Crew Member
Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger may lose her Bravo reality series...and it's not because of her questionable track record marrying off wealthy businessmen to women half their age.
According to new reports, Patti is in hot water for allegedly striking a crewmember while filming a recent episode of the show.
"Patti slapped someone on the arm when she got annoyed," an insider told the Huffington Post. "It wasn't one of her millionaires or ladies hoping to date them -- this was a member of the production crew. This is very serious and conversations are being had about firing Patti and canceling her show."
"It's one thing to get angry and verbally attack someone, but to physically touch someone is unacceptable," a second source added.
This isn't the first time the show's future is in possible jeopardy. During an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" in 2011, Stanger, who is Jewish, angered viewers by claiming "Jewish men lie" and that "there's no curbing the gay man."
She kept her job at the time, reportedly due to the support of Bravo honcho Andy Cohen. So far, neither Bravo nor Stanger has commented on the situation.
