Likewise, during the interview, Melyssa also stated that she had connected relationship with God.
Dating on Millionaire Matchmaker
After one year from The Breakfast Club interview, in 2015, she went to the dating show Millionaire Matchmaker with Patty Stanger to find a man, who would "Bonnie and Clyde" with her in life.
When the dating guru, Pattie asked if she would want a high-earning educated man who wished marriage and children, she nodded "yes" to all of Pattie's suggestions, adding she also liked tall guys.
They later came to the conclusion that Melyssa's powered up sexuality should be supervised to find the right man. The host then suggested her not to lead men with her sexuality.
To be precise, Pattie, with the help of Dr. Pat, suggested Melyssa approach love with her body, not her brain if she wanted to attract a husband-material-guy.
Making the long story short, Melyssa develops solid chemistry with her date, Jay. They even have an emotional conversation about their dads followed by cigar smoking and cute kissing.
Unfortunately, at the end of the show, Jay learned that Melyssa wouldn't come back for a second date and that she had found another fling in New York.
Dating Status Now
The Hollywood Unclocked Uncencord co-host (alongside Jason Lee and Giovani Watson) on Dash Radio, Melyssa has tweeted about her loving boyfriends in the past, including New York City, her fav shoes, and her first boyfriend: a chihuahua.
The video-vixen-turned-real-estate agent said she was single while on Millionaire Matchmaker in 2015. She also indicated that she wouldn't settle for anything less than what she wanted.
A licensed real estate salesperson for Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Melyssa looks like a dating force only a few men could handle; she likes to work a lot, loves to flaunt her assets, doesn't compromise extra, and has a long history of unsuccessful dating.
Despite a long dating history, Melyssa was probably single in 2019, or she might be in a secret relationship, only she knows. But given she has been vocal about her life to the public, the latter seems unlikely.
Confirming her singlehood in February 2019, she didn't pen a specific message to anyone for Valentine's Day. Instead, she posted a generic post and wished her fans on occasion.
