Why Patti Stanger Deleted Grindr Off Perez Hilton's Phone, Told Him To 'Stop Having Sex'

The upcoming season of "Millionaire Matchmaker" shows Patti Stanger fixing up celebrities large and small, from Dina Lohan to "Chilli" of TLC. Another bold name on Stanger's matchmaking roster: Perez Hilton, for whom the third-generation matchmaker had to take a particularly determined approach.

"I say no sex before monogamy, and I told Perez this and I said look, you're going to have to stop having sex. No Grindr!" she recounted in a Wednesday HuffPost Live interview. "[I said] give me your phone -- I took it out of his phone!"

And while Stanger laments the gay community's preference "to get frisky first," she celebrates their ability to be so accepting and adaptive.

"They're so colorful and they're open," she said, referring to the gay community. "If one [match] doesn't work, I'm onto the next one, where the straight community's a little bit more like 'I want this one to work' and beat a dead horse. So the gay community keeps moving."

Tune into this season of "Millionaire Matchmaker" premiering this Sunday, Dec. 7th, at 9:30 on Bravo.
