The Millionaire Matchmaker weighs in! Bravo’s third-generation matchmaker Patti Stanger shared her professional opinion exclusively with Us Weekly about current celebrity pairings, including Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, as well as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
“Actually love this,” she told Us of Talvin (who made their Instagram debut on Wednesday, June 10!) at her Completely Bare summer launch event held the same night in Beverly Hills. “I actually hope this works out. I hope they don’t get swelled heads and he gets a bigger better deal with some little hottie potati because they do work long hours, they’re always on the road. If they’re not working together, thank God he’s a producer and he can produce her, which I think is the key to everything.”
One celebrity pairing that does not hold the key, according to Stanger? Swift’s ex John Mayer and “Bad Blood” nemesis Katy Perry. “They’re back and forth but someone’s gotta… They’re both Scorpios so they’re both stubborn,” the Bravo star explained.
In fact, Stanger, 54, opined that on-again, off-again couples are essentially doomed. “I don’t think it ever works out,” she told Us. “I think you always know what you’re getting at the end of the day. If you can’t get it done on the first try, it’s probably not gonna happen.”
Take, for example, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, who split last year after a rocky romance. Stanger advised Bieber to date somebody more low-key. “Somebody off the Hollywood carpet,” she speculated to Us. “Somebody maybe in the beauty business or something. Someone who’s not so hung up on [the fact that] he’s Justin Bieber. Someone who sees him for Justin, forget the Bieb.”
Along with Bieber, Stanger listed some female celebrities that she would like to work with. “I would love to do a boot camp with J.Lo and Katy Perry, all the girls, Madonna, that have been done wrong,” she told Us. “Do a real internal boot camp like where we just sit down and shoot the s— and we really get to Jesus and find out why we’re blocking love.”
Stanger gave some advice to J.Lo, too, saying she and Casper [Smart] were “too cozy wozy” for her liking. “I do love a good, strong Hollywood hunk,” she told Us. “I don’t know, if Ben [Affleck] and Jen [Garner] break up, watch out, Jen. I don’t know. I could see Ben, like, going to a casual lunch with [Lopez] if they break up.”
Still, the Bravo-lebrity told Us that she wanted to see the parents of three stay together and work it out, as it’s been rumored that there’s trouble in their marriage of 10 years. “I don’t want to see Ben and Jen break up,” she told Us. “I really like them because they’re good, two strong Leos.”
Last but certainly not least, Stanger weighed in on Leonardo DiCaprio‘s chronic habit of dating blonde models. “He always looks at the model. I mean, I was upset about [his split with Bar Refaeli], but Bar got engaged. I was praying for them to get back together. That was the one I really wanted to get back together.”
“He never dates a brunette. What’s wrong?” she continued. “Why doesn’t he give our team some credit there? I don’t get that. Maybe that’s the reason he always stays single because he’s always with the blonde bimbos. They say practice on blonde, marry a brunette. Maybe Bradley Cooper‘s girl Irina [Shayk] should watch out!”
