Lie Detectors and Stacey of Millionaire Matchmaker

Stacey Kessler is a very unique girl.  Her first appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker was so eventful that she was brought back for the final episode and even strapped to a lie detector.  Jersey girl meets Jersey girl tonight when Ridgewood’s Stacy Kessler gets some dating assistance from Short Hills native Patti Stanger — also known as Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker.”

Stacey, a 46-year-old divorced mother, model, actress and life coach, says she went on the show because “I don’t really date much, actually”. “I wanted to give it an honest chance, ’cause Patti supposedly is a professional matchmaker. So I gave it an honest chance. You sort of live and you learn.”  Although, Patti has yet to be able to find a match for herself at nearly 50 years old Stacey went for it.

Here is a little exchange between our two friends from Jersey.

STACY KESSLER - Please apologize to me for yelling that one time. 

PATTI STANGER - No.

STACY KESSLER - Do it. 

PATTI STANGER - I said no. I don't feel like it.

STACY KESSLER - Then I will walk out of this office and never accept your free matchmaking services again.

PATTI STANGER - Stop being disruptful! You're so disruptful!

STACY KESSLER - I don't think disruptful is a word.

PATTI STANGER - Who are you, Merriam Webster? This is my business. I decide what words exist.

Chance Spiessbach of Chance TV was actually a date of Stacey’s on one show and knew her prior to the interview.  New York City International lifestyle coach Stacey, who was the “millionairesses” address Patti’s claims that Stanger feels Kessler’s “energy is scattered due to a midlife crisis”.   She also address’s David Yontef, one of the contestants who says he has a little secret about the self-proclaimed millionaires on the show: they’re not as rich as they claim.  Stacey was one of the people he singled out.

Yontef estimated that 50 % of the contests do not actually have $1 million. He named Stacy Kessler, Doug Kepanis and Jason Teich as shams.He claimed Bravo does no validating of a person’s claim to being a millionaire.  Only Stacey knows for sure.

Done with dating shows, Kessler is focused on building a career in entertainment as an actress and TV host. She has also assumed the position of lifestyle coach on her YouTube show “The Lingerie Script,” which is aimed at empowering 40-something women. “It’s something tasteful, classy and unexpected,” she says of the show, which includes expert diet and exercise tips.

Why was important for her to target her own age group? “Successful women with children who, number one, are happy — which is the most important thing in life — and are personally and professionally successful … achieving all that is a tall order,” she says. “A lot of people just can’t do it alone. But if I can do it, anybody can.”
