Patti Stanger Patti Stanger's media tour continues, but she's not exactly cleaning up her anti-gay mess.

In an appearance on HLN's 'The Joy Behar Show,' the 'Millionaire Matchmaker' tried to clarify the statements she made on 'Watch What Happens Live,' but only seemed to reiterate them.

"For five years I have put gay dating on the map," Stanger said. "Nobody else ever did this. There was no Logo then. I did the No H8 campaign, I was an advocate for gay marriage. I stood up there for my gay friends -- I have more gay friends than Carter has pills."

However, Stanger says there is no way to force gay men into monogamous relationships, especially in Los Angeles. "I'm trying to curb them," she told Behar.

It's not the same with lesbians though, Stanger said. "This is not the lesbian. They get involved, move in together. They're quiet, they're at peace."

Still, Stanger seems to stand by her comments about gay men not being able to be in a monogamous relationship.

"But the gay man, they whip it out at eye lock! They get involved, and then find out later whether or not they want a serious relationship," Stanger said. "And I hope they use the privilege in New York of gay marriage because they have it. A lot of gays aren't getting married!"

In the segment that airs on Tues., Sept. 27, Behar was quick to point out that Stanger offended people by making seemingly saying all gay men can't be monogamous.

"I am so sorry," Stanger said in a statement. "I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on 'Watch What Happens Live.'"
