Patti Stanger: Engaged to Andy Friedman

by at . Comments

The annoying host of that Millionaire Matchmaker show on Bravo has apparently found one of her own. We're guessing the guy isn't poor, either.

Patti Stanger is engaged to Andy Friedman, she says. The star's reaction:

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

"I feel like it should have happened years ago, so I'm kind of shocked."

Andy Friedman, a 51-year-old real estate executive that Patti Stanger, 48, met through her own matchmaker five and a half years ago - popped the question in Maui on her May 31 birthday. A black swan named Raymond delivered the ring.

Of the ring, Patti says, "I have a rule, if you go out a year and he doesn't propose, it goes up a carat a year." Because that makes a lot of sense.

The L.A.-based duo is planning 2010 nuptials, even if "I want to elope, and he wants a big wedding," she says. "I'm like, 'Let's go to Vegas!'"


Patti, I bought your book "Become Your Own Matchmaker" when visiting in Bal Harbor, Fla. I have used your advice on several occassions and have weeded out all the losers. I'm sorry that you you put all your efforts in the 3rd generation. The 5th generation really needs some help too. There are a lot of millionaires out there in that age bracket that have a problem with the age of women. There are a lot of hot babes out there that are in their 50's and early 60's. Thank you for what you do in drumming the age factor problem with these men. Older women can put some of these younger chicks in their hip pockets. Good luck and best wishes on your engagement!


Andy better go for the quickie wedding before she finds out he actually works as an insurance adjuster/70s porn reject.


I met Patti Stanger 6 months ago at a book signing she did at a West Hollyood gay bar. I found her to be one of the foulest people I had met in a long time. Telling the audience they were cheep for not buying her book and yelling at her unpaid interns "get out there and make them buy my book!" was just trashy and appalling.


I've known Andy for years and he is a wonderful man, Patti is very lucky to have him. All the best to the newly engaged couple.


Patti Stanger is a BIG woman...perhaps she's wearing an unflattering dress but still.
