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."

The reality show star also proclaimed on the Bravo after-show that "Jewish men lie,” NY Daily News reports. Her behaviour came as a surprise, as Stanger has often declared her respect for the gay community and rallied on behalf of gay marriage by appearing in a NOH8 campaign ad. In an appearance on New York Live, Stanger, known as the ‘Millionaire Matchmaker,’ slammed single Manhattan women for being too intelligent. She advised them to cease talking about their high test scores and even using big words if they wanted to attract a man. "They don't like them before they are married," she said, referring to how men supposedly feel about smart women. "You've got to dumb it down a little because men are not that bright,” Stanger said, NY Daily News reports. On last week's episode Stanger put down redheads, after a wayward client declined to follow her advice in finding true love. "She's got red hair," Stanger said in reference to the client. "She shouldn’t be talking, let alone getting a date,” she said, reports NY Daily News. Last year, 49 year-old Stanger and her fiance Andy Friedman split after six years together. "I want a kid now and [he] doesn't," Stanger explained. "My dealbreaker has always been kids."
