The Millionaire Matchmaker ready to date again – and says it "may be fun" to date a celebrity who will probably "get" her faster than a "civilian"
Now that she has broken up with longtime boyfriend David Krause, Patti Stanger is single and ready to mingle.
The star of Bravo’s hit reality series, The Millionaire Matchmaker announced her split with Krause last month.
“I haven t dated yet. But I’m ready,” she told PEOPLE at Jill Zarin‘s 3rd Annual Luxury Luncheon at her Southampton, New York, home July 18.
“It may be fun to date a celebrity, who will probably get me faster than a civilian,” the love expert, who is famous for her lasting matches, said.
“But who should I date?” she added. “I don t know another matchmaker like me.”
As for her dream partner, she immediately named Liam Neeson.
“It would be great to go on a date with him,” she said. “He’s hot. We’re both Geminis, so I like that. He’s tall. He likes wine and I have a wine company, PS Match. I love men from Ireland, the U.K. and Australia. He is an amazing actor. He just gets better and better in every one of his movies. He’s adorable.”
She’s also into really smart guys, like Google’s co-founder.
“I like Serge Brin,” she said. “It wouldn t be bad to go Internet.”
Stanger made one more addition to her fantasy list: “There’s also Keanu Reeves. He’s in my age bracket. I can’t resist an Earth sign.”
Stanger, who just announced that she is leaving Bravo, was on hand at the former Real Housewives of New York star’s lavish fète, along with RHONY stars LuAnn de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer, former RHONY star Aviva Drescher, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey and her husband, Peter Thomas, Chef Roblé and journalist/author Rita Cosby.
The charity luncheon benefited The Samuel WAXMAN Cancer Research, The Eric Trump Foundation for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the International Thyroid Oncology Group.
Zarin’s guests were treated pampering at beauty bars including hair styling by Priv, manicures with LVX nail polish and concierge-style teeth whitening from Manhattan Whitening Company. VIP guests went home with Minnie Rose aviator sunglasses and gift cards for the private plane company, Apollo Jets.
Stanger says Krause has started dating again – with her blessing. “We’re still friends,” she said. “I told him to date.”
Even though they are no longer an item, they are still sharing custody of their dogs.
“Well, kind of,” she said. “Unfortunately, Shrek passed away. We had to put him down. I did take Rerun last week for David. So it’s all good.”
