The Millionaire Matchmaker: Curly Haired Women Fight Back!

November 04, 2010 11:00 AM by Shayla Perry


Uh-oh! It looks like the outspoken Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger of Bravo has gotten herself into a tangled mess with curly-haired women across the country. Why are they giving Stanger the brush off? What’s her response to the uproar? Keep reading for the play by play!

Patti Stanger of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker has always claimed that her deep pocketed clients are not fans of women with curly hair. But  this time, it seems Stanger may have gone a little too far, calling curly hair “scraggly, frizzy, bird’s nests” on her show, which prompted the people from the website, NaturallyCurly to fight back in a letter directed to Patti demanding that she “stop curl bashing” and suggesting that she “rock” her own “natural curls.”

In the open letter, the website let loose on Stanger, proclaiming, “Season after season, we’ve listened to you fuel insecurities and spread a notion that you can only be attractive with smooth, straight hair.” NaturallyCurly chastised the high-profile matchmaker, adding, “What would people say if you were asking women to change their skin color to attract a man? You appear to be living in a time warp where only one standard of beauty exists: the Barbie Doll.”

The website further challenged Stanger, telling her that she should “use her weekly platform to instead encourage women to accept and embrace their natural beauty.”

Stanger apparently is not backing down, and took to Twitter for her response to the angry letter, tweeting, “Ok, naturally curly bunch. I like stylish curly/wavy hair, but my millionaire men don’t. So, go buy a flat iron.”

Did the people of NaturallyCurly really expect her to apologize? This is Patti, afterall.

    ^ Ikr! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a man on her show blatantly say “I absolutely hate curly hair” I think it’s HER that has a problem with it. What’s wrong with being yourself? Being fake in a relationship is NEVER a good thing.

    I don’t like straight hair, in particular if it is black, it usually get greasy easily and it makes me think like I am with a mexican chick. Also, weaking up with a chick with dark, straight hair is scary. I like thick, very wavy, blond hair, like Kim Bassinger’s.
