Patti Stanger

"Sorry" I Blasted Gays & Jews

Patti Stanger 
says she's extremely sorry for her homophobic and anti-Semitic remarks last night on TV -- telling TMZ, she didn't mean to stir the pot.

Patti tells us, “I am so sorry. I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night."

Patti appeared on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" -- when she said gay men are incapable of monogamy ... adding, "There is no curbing gay men ... I have tried."

But gay men weren't the only target of Patti's unprompted criticism -- she also generalized, "Jewish men lie."

Bravo is also apologizing for Patti's outburst -- telling us, “[Patti's] comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions.  We apologize for the offense it caused.”

Only one comment I saw has any merit to it. Patty is Jewish herself so I believe she meant nothing by it . She was probably just annoyed with a lot of men and women on this show. Why are most of you people so dumb...?????

Many PEOPLE lie. Many PEOPLE can't stay monogamus. If you are part of an ethnic, racial or religious group, would you like someone to say that you are ALL the same? She's just a bitter stupid woman who can't keep a man, so since she probably has been with mostly Jewish men, she decides that Jewish men are all liars and that's why she can't get them to stay with her. Yeah, Patti, that's the reason. It's THEM.

Its a cycle. Someone slurs gays or jews and then the watchdog groups do their job of defending and denouncing. I mean really, she went on TV and said "Jewish men lie" and Gays can't be faithful. As others have mentioned, you can say whatever you want, which is true thanks to the first amendment. But you have to expect the Pavlovian response by the self-appointed "protectors."

But the next part is the interesting and scary part. People making posts in here DONT agree with the watchdog groups in saying "Its not acceptable to go on tv and make racist comments...regardless of the intensity of the slur." but instead they are defending the comment. They don't defend the person that made the comment (because, as many pointed out, she's a Jew) but the comment itself. We live in scary times and I think this sort of public aligning with anti-gay and anti-Semetic ideology is a big first step to a real, physical backlash against Gays and Jews. Which is why the watchdogs are out in force whenever anyone whispers a racist slur against an entire group of people.

She can say what she wants, its an opinion. She didnt say she doesnt like gay/jewish people, she had an opinion about them in relationships. Chill out! AND I dont understand the people on here who are now calling her names but complain about what she said?? How can you complain about something your doing yourself? Stop being so serious =D

Stranger is NOT sorry.She is worried she might lose that big giant paycheck she receives for her horrible show. If you watch the clip she meant what she said. BUT instead of firing her for her moronic remarks how about fire her for NEVER making a match!!

I do not think she is either anti semitic (she is Jewish) or homophobic (she strikes me as a *** hag), I think she is just expressing a rather cynical opinion about two groups that likely is very familiar with. She has been around Jewish men her whole life and lots of single, jaded women are always bitching about men and their problems and she probably knows a lot of gay men and anyone who has gay friends or is gay themselves can tell you that while her opinion does not cover all of us, monogamy is not very common in gay relationships.

We may all be entitled to our opinion, however either own it or keep your mouth shut, Patty! If this is how you feel, don't apologize! Be Honest, as you say that this is the only way to build relationships! Human Nature is Human Nature, Be it Gay, Jewish, Old, Black or just biggotted, it is not shared by any one sect of the population!

Just telling the truth. 20 years from now they will have plenty of marriage stats on gay men. It's going to be interesting.
