LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- As the star of Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” Patti Stanger is in the business of finding people who fit romantically, and on Friday, the relationship guru weighed in on why she thinks Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher split.
“What it is, is that there’s a 16-year age difference in the older female and younger male,” Patti told Access Hollywood. “I don’t think it can work.”
Patti, who continues her own search for love in this Tuesday’s season finale of “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” thinks the opposite equation – an older man with a younger woman, is a good fit.
“In my opinion, I think the other way can [work],” she said. “In this case, Ashton’s young, with money. He doesn’t need her money; he’s very successful; he owns half of Silicon Valley; he’s invested in every major Internet company out there. The second thing is, he’s looking good, he’s back on TV, he’s got pep in his step and he’s hitting the blondes. What’s up with that?”
Patti, who has also had her personal relationship ups and downs, said she could relate to Demi.
“She’s getting to a different level in her life,” the Bravo star said. “It’s almost like her window’s closing and his is opening. And it’s sad, because I’m her age, I know exactly what it feels like to feel like, you know, ‘Is my tour of duty over?’ And I say to Demi, ‘Hang in there! But you need to date older – in your own age group.’”
While it’s unlikely Demi will be spotted dating any time soon, Patti said when the time is right, Demi should look for someone with similar values.
“I think she needs to find someone spiritual. She’s very involved in the Kabbalah Center. I don’t get the sense that Ashton is really in it for himself as far as Kabbalah is goes, to heighten himself. I think he did it for Demi,” Patti said. “I think she needs to find someone in her own age group who’s probably outside of Hollywood who’s a business owner.”
“The Millionaire Matchmaker” season finale airs Tuesday on Bravo. The reunion shows, hosted by Andy Cohen, air on Bravo on November 29 and December 6 at 9 PM ET/PT.
