Turns out there's a lot more to the story of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger's Today Show dress than meets the eye. Stylist Lauren Solomon, who's been guiding us on a behind-the-scenes tour of how the Bravo star's outfits get pulled together, said that Stanger ultimately rejected a red DVF dress because it was too short. What she didn't tell us, though, is that the dress turned Patti Stanger into Christian Bale in Louboutins.
TMZ has the full audio of Stanger's verbal beat-down, and even listening to it through laptop speakers makes us want to crawl under a table. Solomon, however, seems to have recovered with grace, commissioning a custom dress for her angry client.
