Who better than to offer relationship advice than Million Dollar Matchmaker star Patti Stanger? In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the WE tv star told all about what she thinks of The Bachelor couple Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi calling off their engagement five months after their season finale aired.
“I think she probably wanted to get married and call it a day, have babies, you know — she’s in that age group, and he’s [going to be 37], like, grow the f–k up,” Patti quips, adding, “I think what’s happening with him is he’s riding the wave with Dancing With the Stars, he’s probably getting a lot of money for appearances, and there were reports in various tabloids that they were constantly fighting — and you know, she’s Canadian. She’s still not an American, so I don’t know if the green card aspect was there. She did move to LA, she gave up her career, that’s a lot. And if you’re not moving along with the wedding plans, which he kept saying, ‘We’re taking it slow,’ — it’s like okay, you just gave her a ring. What was that about? Either you want her or you don’t, or you’re using this for fame.”
And that’s not all. Patti, who recently launched a Pat-moji line, believes the universe could have helped impact their split. “It’s a mercury retrograde, and it is during an eclipse, and Saturn is stationing in Sagittarius, I think they’re both Libras and have the same birthday, so I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent over. Like, they might circle back. You might see an appearance, not saying it’s completely dead, or they might have talked and stuff — but there’s something, not 100 percent clean with the breakup.
She continued, “I do believe that the fact that they said it together is a good thing — like, they’re on the same page. When there’s a mercury retrograde, things don’t always stick.”
Million Dollar Matchmaker airs on Fridays at 9 p.m. on We TV.
