Bravo's Matchmaker: "There Is No Curbing the Gay" on Monogamy


Apologies are being issued after the debate about monogamy's history in the world of gay men spread to Bravo Sunday night during an episode of Watch What Happens Live.

"I am so sorry," said Patti Stanger, of Millionaire Matchmaker, in a statement. "I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night."

"Bravo regrets the comments," a spokesman for the network said, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. "Her comments are not representative of the network's beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused."

Trouble started as Stanger, a guest on Watch What Happens Live, took calls and doled out advice.

"I want to ask Patti how she felt about open, long-distance relationships," asked Dustin from Canton, Ohio. "She always preaches monogamy."

Her answer had host Andy Cohen contorting his face in shock.

"In the gay world, there's always going to be open. Are you straight or gay?" she asked the caller.

"Gay," he said.

"OK, then you're OK."

That's where Cohen, who is gay, jumped in.

"So wait, hold on," he said, asking whether it's only gays who are allowed to have open relationships.

"There is no curbing the gay," Stanger declared. "I tried to curb you people, and you just don't."

It goes on from there. Was Patti Stanger out of line? Watch the video below.
