Patti Stanger Angers Viewers: Blasts Gays' and Jews' Dating Values
Patti Stanger, the Bravo reality show dating guru, has angered viewers by blasting the dating values of single gays, Jews and even intelligent women.
Stanger caused a furore on the network's "Watch What Happens Live" after telling a gay man not to worry about being in a long-distance relationship, New York Daily News reports.
"In the gay world, there's always going to be open [relationships]," she said. "There's no curbing the gay man. You're going to be OK."
Andy Cohen, show host and Bravo's openly gay executive vice president of original programming and development then asked, "So wait, gays can have open relationships?"
Stanger proceeded to add further fuel to the fire by retorting, "I have tried to curb 'you people,’” reports NY Daily News.
Then, when a displeased Cohen argued "I am a gay and am down for monogamy," Stanger snapped, "When's the last time you had a boyfriend?"
On Monday, Stanger took to Twitter to tweet her support for the gay community but upheld her comments that gay men are less likely to be in a relationship.
"Attn male Gays: I support you & my comment on WWHL was to LA guys who can't find commitment ..." she tweeted. "It's true LA gays toughest nuts to crack to monogamy."
