Oh, no! Patti Stanger, better known to readers of this blog as the self-appointed Millionaire Matchmaker, decided over the weekend to call it quits with her fiancé, Andy Friedman. We don’t know exactly how things went down, but on Friday afternoon, she was Tweeting lovestruck missives, and by Saturday morning she was announcing to her 42,000 followers that it was kaput. “I just ended my relationship with Andy,” La Stanger wrote, at 9:39 a.m. “It hit me really hard that I want kids in my life. You have to agree on the non-negotiables.”

Stanger, who had already pushed back the wedding date, told Life & Style that Friedman had apparently changed his mind about having kids. “Ever since our first date, he knew I wanted kids,” Stanger told the magazine. “A life without kids has no meaning to me. I think the most important job in the world is being a parent or step-parent!”

So, you know what? Good for her! She’s 49 years old, she makes her shekels selling people on the importance of finding lasting love, and she certainly has to know that, having forced even her most ardent fans to sit through dull, dull footage of her wedding planning, there will be more than a few people who harbor more than a little secret schadenfreude. This is a woman who clearly doesn’t give a damn what the rest of the world thinks about how she runs her life, instead placing the premium on her own happiness. And now, with her show shooting in New York, she knows what to do next. We quote: “You go to the fucking suburbs! You go to Westchester, you go to Long Island, you go to Jersey, you look around! Guys in Jersey buy fucking $4 million houses!”

I am ashamed of the horrific language used and approved by whoever decided to publish the life of the matchmaker.

No, prudism is not my style, however, much to my chagrin
vulgar language is also not my style.

I will not subscribe to this news anymore.

Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site by accident, and I’m surprised why this coincidence didn’t came about earlier! I bookmarked it.
