'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger Apologizes for Remarks on Gays and Jews

Tommy Garcia/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- "Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger has issued an apology for disparaging remarks she made about gay men and Jewish people during a TV appearance on Sunday. Appearing on the Bravo call-in talk show Watch What Happens Live, Stanger was asked about monogamy in a long-distance relationship. She commented to openly gay host Andy Cohen, "There is no curbing the gays ... I have tried to curb you people." She also said during the show, “Jewish men lie.”

Stanger, whose dating series Millionaire Matchmaker also airs on Bravo, apologized to her Twitter followers Monday, writing, "Attn male Gays: I support you & my comment on WWHL was to a LA guy who can't find commitment." She released a similar statement through the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation: “I am so sorry. I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.”
