Patti Stanger, aka the “Millionaire Matchmaker,” is getting hitched! The straight-talking, reality star is engaged to beau Andy Friedman .
“I feel like it should have happened years ago, so I’m kind of shocked,” she told US Weekly magazine. Stanger, 48, said that Friedman, a 51-year-old real estate executive whom she met through a matchmaker five-and-a-half years ago, popped the question in Maui, Hawaii, on her May 31 birthday.
A black swan named Raymond delivered the 4-carat ring. “I have a rule, if you go out a year and he doesn’t propose, it goes up a carat a year,” she said. The Left Coast-based couple, who don’t live together, are planning for 2010 nuptials.
