Many people get a vicarious thrill from watching reality show host Patty Stanger work her magic on super-rich men, matching them with a bevy of eligible ladies. Now, the Millionaire Matchmaker is getting her own turn at love and wedding planning – Stanger is engaged, Usmagazine.com reports.
The 48-year-old received a proposal from her boyfriend, real estate executive Andy Friedman, while the two were vacationing in Hawaii.
According to the website, a black swan named Raymond delivered the 4-carat engagement ring on Stanger’s birthday.
The host of the popular Bravo matchmaking show said that she and her fiancé are still deciding where to wed, but she’s partial to a destination wedding in Las Vegas in 2010.
“I want to elope, and he wants a big wedding. I’m like, ‘Let’s go to Vegas!'” Stanger told Usmagazine.com.
Stanger founded the Millionaire’s Club in Beverly Hills in 2000 as a way to find partners for extremely wealthy men. On her reality show, part of the fun is that she gives the men makeovers (both physically and emotionally) before they are considered “date-ready.”
