TV 'Matchmaker' Shreds Stylist a la Christian Bale

8/30/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Patti Stanger, TV's "Millionaire Matchmaker," went absolutely nuclear on a stylist who didn't bring nearly enough style to the table -- in Patti's opinion -- and the ballistic tirade was all caught on tape.

TMZ obtained a recording of the recent NYC meeting between Patti, her stylist Lauren Solomon, and a few other assistants. According to sources, Lauren was showing Patti possible outfits for upcoming TV appearances ... including a "Today" segment with Elle magazine's Joe Zee.

As Patti shrieked -- in her best Christian Bale voice -- "This is Elle f**king magazine! This is the big one!!" Another must-hear gem ... Patti's rant about the proper way to take measurements. 

We're told Patti and Lauren are "best friends" and that Patti viewed this as "just an argument."

We're guessing a little Prada would've gone a long way to calm the situation.

She really is a c**t. And didn't she just break up with her fiance? A matchmaker who can't match herself? Uh, OK.

Patti is a delusional and insecure fat chick.

She accused the stylist of "Trying to **fatten** her up"??

Newsflash Patti - YOU ARE FAT! Whenever they show you wearing that leather outfit, you look like a package of sausage links in the casing.

Don't beat up on the poor girl because you're a fat cow; go on a diet and you'll look better in a bunch of different clothes.

BTW, the true measure of success is to be GRACEFUL in a discussion!

Secretly taping people with a smartphone happens all the time, especially when "celebs" are involved. Assistants feel some sort of revenge if they catch their boss letting their true personality shine through. It also makes for fun times at parties when comparisons are made. It's a felony to do so, but catching people, who are not nice, in the act of being their true self is just too irresistible. On a scale of one to ten, this is about a two.

What a way to treat your employee Patti. Keep treating people that way and nobody will want to work for you. Guys don't want Banshees in their lives so why do you act like one? I tell ya, if you were to ever speak to me like you did to her, those fish lips would end up on the back side of your head.

e women would try to comoensate for their unfortunate looks by developing good personalitiem but such is not the case,

Anyone who has ever worked in NY knows that Stanger's behavior is par for the course among Jewisih women. They speak to people (ESPECIALLY their husbands) in this manner ALL THE TIME, screaming like banshees rather than speaking in a respectful tone. One would think that such unattractive women would try to compensate for their unfortunate looks by developing good personalities but such is not the case. They are ugly from the inside out.

@Production Assistant. Stop giving out legal advice for which you are unqualified. The legality of one-party-consent taping depends on the jurisdiction. New York is a ONE-PARTY STATE, which means only ONE party to the conversation needs to be aware of and give consent to the taping.

What a self entitled b!tch! Also, for those who think her show is legit, think again. They were shooting in NYC, I work as an actress/model. I was contacted by my modeling agency to work on the show as a "date" for "The Millionaires." What a load of horse ****! I am married and told them no. Just remeber peeps, there is NOTHING real about "reality" tv!

Dear Cheryl (#21 & 23),

It is illegal to secretly tape someone in most states. I neglected to mention that some jurisdictions have exceptions, but your blanket statement about New York being a "ONE-PARTY STATE" is also inadequate and misleading. You left out a little matter of intent, and God knows lawyers never argue over a little thing like that. The next time I post on TMZ I'll try and pretend I'm writing for the law review. Try not to skewer me with your learned reply.

Patti is desperate to be famous. Her show is a joke... she needs to come off of her high horse fast. If I was her stylist or assistant there would be a video of me beating her ass and then telling her to find her own clothes to wear. She's a hot mess!
