Bravo Crossover: Millionaire Matchmaker Meets Real Housewives of New Jersey

This week on The Millionaire Matchmaker, Caroline Manzo's sons were helped by Patti Stanger's matchmaking skills.

While this was clearly a cross-show publicity stunt, it was worth it. It was fun to watch Caroline show her overbearing mom side (that's what we love about her!) and watch how the dating mixer went down.

Patti took a non-traditional approach with this mixer. She told the girls that the millionaires they were dating were late, and Chris and Albie would serve them drinks in the meantime. Chris and Albie got to spend time with the women, and eventually Patti revealed that they were, in fact, the millionaires.

The dates were okay, although one was non-traditional (Medieval Times), but neither son is currently still dating his selected girl.

I'm sure this was just a big stunt to gain viewers for both The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Millionaire Matchmaker, but if it worked, whatever...good for Bravo.

Side note: I feel like Patti's losing her touch with matchmaking with the show's participants. I'm sure she's still amazing off screen, but the on screen match-ups just haven't been working out.
