Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger Blames Amy Poehler's Success For Her Divorce, Should Just Go To Hell Right Now

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger is trying to supplant Kim Kardashian as the Worst Person Alive (non dictator, murder or warlord division). First there was this, then there was this, then there was her entire career of insisting women diet until rich men agreed to fuck them. In her latest bullshit-reinforcing escapade, she began blogging for People magazine and her inaugural column is about how a woman’s success will ruin her marriage because cavemen and feelings!
