On the last episode, Patti’s first client was Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, one of the members of the former girl group TLC. Chilli spent most of her time raising her son and touring, so her suitors were usually someone from the industry. Now that her son was 17, she was ready to get serious and find love. Could Chilli put her work aside long enough to find a real, down-to-earth guy? Patti’s second client was retired NFL player Jeff Ogden. This was his second time seeing Patti, and this time he wanted to go deeper and find a girl who was right for him. Expert John Salley helped Jeff navigate the dating waters as a fellow former professional athlete. Did you watch the last episode? We’ve got a detailed recap for you right here.

Meanwhile, Sonja Morgan, a beautiful mother and divorceé on The Real Housewives of New York City, has no trouble finding a man, but it never lasts.

Sonja and Trent are in the hot tub on the roof having champagne and Sonja says she feels much safer with Kent and likes him. They’re making out in the hot tub moving faster than they probably should. Patti meets with David and they call Greg to see how the date went. Greg says he met him a few years ago and says he’s a great guy. Patti asks if they kissed and he says no. They agree that it was more a friendship thing than a sexual thing.
Perez comes in and says he had a fun time on the date. He says it was someone he knows. Patti says that Greg saw the changes in him.

She says he needs to try and kiss the person to see if there’s chemistry. She says he loves life and he’s a good soul and will someone come along and see that he’s a good catch.
Patti says it’s amazing that he did this. She says Greg wasn’t the one but she thinks Perez is now open to true love. Kent calls in and says they were soaking in the hot tub.
