Patti Stanger Criticised For Curls Comment

PATTI STANGER, the host of Bravo's 'Millionaire Matchmaker', has been criticised for comments she made about woman who have curly hair, reports CNN. The 49-year-old said that men were less likely to want to touch a woman's hair if it was curly, which sparked angry responses from websites and online groups.
Speaking to Glamour Magazine, Stanger said, "Curly hair is okay . as long as it's approachable hair, which means he wants to touch it, he wants to put his hands in it", adding, "If you've got healthy hair and it's naturally wavy, you're fine. I'm talking about the frizzy, damaged, really harsh hair". The website NaturallyCurly.com quickly reacted to the comments by sending a letter to the television personality that read, "NaturallyCurly.com has had it with your curl-bashing ways. Season after season, we've listened to you fuel insecurities and spread a notion that you can only be attractive with smooth, straight hair."
Stanger was criticised for making similar comments in 2009, and her rep has yet to respond to the latest wave of criticism.

I wonder what her thoughts are on overly inflated blowfish lips like the pair she sports.
