Patti Stanger debates Shmuley Boteach

So I’m kind of a huge fan of Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker.”  Patti Stanger, the show’s star, somehow represents for me the ideal LA Jewish woman.  It’s probably because she’s NOT from LA that I love her so much.  She’s brassy, bold, opinionated, and not afraid to call out the shortcomings of emotionally stunted millionaires.

And I’m a sometimes fan of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who’s a shock jock sort of Orthodox rabbi.  We spotted him once sitting outside a Coffee Bean on a Sunday morning in the Pico/Robertson area of West LA, and couldn’t stop throwing shifty glances at each other, like “ooh, that’s Shmuley Boteach!”  “Yeah, yeah, the guy who debates all the time and has lots of kids!”  and “Wow, he drinks coffee like real people do.”

It kind of made my day to see this article on the cover of the LA Jewish Journal today.  Here’s the corresponding video:

About Monique

Chocoholic, jazz head ... prone to rants, and a professional pitbull. I married a terrific guy who happens to be a rabbi, so I guess that makes me a rebbetzin. Who saw that one coming? My grandparents survived the Shoah and spent their lives in the service of others. On my best days, I walk in their footsteps.
