Valentine’s Day to bring ‘Matchmaker’ back to TV

By Aimee Dolloff, Special to the BDN

All we need is love … and drama! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Bravo is just in time with its second season of “The Millionaire Matchmaker.”

As with most second seasons, this one’s a little different and looks to be even more entertaining than the first round of bachelors that Patti Stranger tried to help find love.

This time, Stranger’s opening up her business to millionaire women and gay men who are looking for love. The goal — to find them a perfect mate to share their high-rolling lifestyle. It’s harder than you might think.

The show premieres at 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12.

Need a little help finding your perfect match? Stranger offers up some words of wisdom at with her blog and a plan to help you find your perfect partner.

I also have to share a love story that shocked me. Last weekend, we were watching MTV at a friend’s house before tuning in to the big UFC fight on pay-per-view. I was floored (and so was The Man on the Couch) at what we saw on MTV’s “A Double Shot of Love.”

I’m no prude, but this was a bit much and I’m hoping there’s not another season to come.

I don’t understand the whole plot, perhaps a sign that I’m getting older since I don’t understand much of what’s on MTV anymore, but I did figure out that the focus of the show was a set of female twins who were looking for love, much like “The Bachelor.” The twist was that both of the ladies dated three of the same people — two guys and one girl — and some of their dates were a little too hot and heavy for my television screen.

And to wrap it up, I must admit that it’s happened again and I have only myself to blame. No matter how hard I try to avoid being sucked in to the first few audition weeks of “Idol,” it never fails that there’s a boring TV night and instead of being responsible and doing something productive, I’m attracted to the drama like a fish to a shiny object.

I have nothing against audition weeks, except that they go on far too long, Ryan Seacrest drives me batty and I’m always disappointed because at least one of my favorites gets booted.

There was one very happy moment, however, during Hollywood Week Round Two. Bikini Girl finally got the boot and I almost jumped off the couch and cheered out loud, but decided I didn’t want to give up my seat to one of the dogs.

There are just some people who, no matter how talented they may be or how talented they think they are, need to get a wakeup call. Hopefully she’ll now figure out that what goes around comes around and if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
