Patti Stanger, the hilariously candid Millionaire Matchmaker, has her sights set on some new celebrity clients – namely, Jennifer Lopez. Stanger, Bravo’s resident dating guru, told HuffPost Live on Dec. 3 that the fiery songstress is the A-list celebrity she’d most like to help find love.
“I think I could help her, really,” said Stanger. “There's some stuff that she's doing that I would love to fix. The first thing is: Don't lead with the cooch."
The “Booty” singer recently released a memoir, True Love, detailing her many high-profile romances. Stanger, 53, attributes these heartbreaks to J. Lo’s sexy persona. The matchmaker insisted that if Lopez, 45, removes sex from the equation when first dating someone, the right guy can pursue her "mentally" and focus on her "hobbies, wishes, and passions."
Lopez recently parted ways from her beau of two years in June, backup dancer and choreographer Casper Smart, her first known relationship following her divorce from Marc Anthony in April 2012, with whom she shares twins Max and Emme, age six.
"And actually, I would like her to date up and not down…” Stanger said of Lopez’s relationship with the dancer. “There's a lid for every pot.”
Stanger, who has dated fiance David Krause since 2012, thinks that Lopez should be looking for “a billionaire” who just hasn’t “found the right one.”
“She's a drop-dead gorgeous woman. She's super successful,” said Stanger of Lopez, who’s other exes include Ben Affleck, Diddy and Cris Judd. “She made her money, she has her kids. Let's make love a priority right now.”
The American Idol judge isn’t the only celebrity Stanger thinks she can help find “the one.” She said that she’s been trying to set up Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen – his parents have even begged her to find Cohen a man!
“I don’t know too many single guys in the news that are gay, but I’ve gotta tell you, that’s one hot potato,” Stanger laughed, “So I would love to set him up, but you know, he’s my boss! How do you do that?”
