Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger made waves with her Sunday night appearance on Andy Cohen's talk show, Watch What Happens Live.
In the Season 5 premiere, Stanger addressed callers flippantly, ordering one woman to read her book and watch her DVDs, and then made things especially awkward when a gay man Skyped the show with a question.
â€œYouâ€™re very handsome," Stanger said. "I thought you were straight. Thatâ€™s a compliment.â€
Patti's comments seemed to offend the audience, which got so quiet that Cohen remarked how silent the crowd was. "I'm uncomfortable," he said.
Cohen also had to stand up for himself to Stanger, who argued that gay men were less likely than straight people to be monogamous. "Thereâ€™s no curbing the gay," she said. "Iâ€™ve tried to curb you people. Iâ€™ve decided to throw in the towel and just say, â€˜Do what you want.'"
Stanger did some recovery PR on Monday, Tweeting, "Attn male Gays: I support you & my comment on WWHL was to a LA guy who can't find commitment."
