'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger's Clients Complain She's A Ripoff (UPDATE: Patti Responds!)

UPDATE: Patti spoke to E! Online, lashing back at the criticism.

"This is all lies, plus they're under contract by Bravo," Stanger tells E! News. "I don't have control over the edits, I'm not in the editing room, you're on a show. Look at the Kardashians, what do you think that is? It's a reality show."

Regarding the accusation of giving a man liquor and then yelling at him for drinking, Patti said, "He brought his own beer to set and was drinking. This is all lies. They're pissed they got on camera and they're not happy with what they saw."

Patti Stanger's 'Millionaire Matchmaker' is a millionaire ripoff, some clients complain.

Participants from the fourth season of Stanger's dating service show gathered in New York on Wednesday and agreed that Stanger's work only hurt their love lives and/or businesses, according to the New York Post.

It's all in the way things were set up, filmed, and then edited, they say.

Jason Teich, whom the Post said was described on the show as "tough-talking, heavy drinking guy from Brooklyn," told the Post that producers fed him drinks, only for Stanger to yell at him on air, accusing him of being an alcoholic.

He's yet to get a date since his episode aired.

Another man, David Vroubel, had a similar complaint. "They backed a bus over me and then ran it over again," he complained to The Post. "She said she had a one-in-five success rate -- come on, she can't even get married herself."

In August, Stanger called off her engagement with Andy Friedman, making her single once again.

On Wednesday, the Huffington Post published an in depth interview with Stanger, who dished on a number of celebrity divorces. Among them, she said Courtney Cox should see her marriage "as a business deal," and that Sandra Bullock is afraid of commitment.
