Reality Show ‘Survivors?’

Oh, please. You go on a reality show titled Millionaire Matchmaker and you now cry as to how you’re portrayed?

Survivors of “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger banded together Tuesday night to watch the season finale of a show that they say ruined their lives.

Season 4 contestants told Page Six the mouthy matchmaker’s comments and edits have caused them professional and romantic damage, as they gathered at Hudson Terrace to drown their sorrows.

Long Island divorce lawyer Doug Kepanis, who’s described on the show’s Web site as “a divorce attorney with an ugly bod,” said business has slowed and he was dropped as a legal expert from TruTV because he appeared sexist. “It’s the busiest time of the year for divorces, and I haven’t gotten any calls since my appearance,” Kepanis said. “I have a lot of female clients — it may have turned them away.”

“Survivors?” “Losers” is more fitting. The rest here.
