WE tv's Million Dollar Matchmaker
stopped by ET for a Facebook Live interview on Thursday, where she said her "favorite" Hollywood couple is still living together despite announcing their separation
earlier this week.
"OK, so this is really hard because I'm close to them," she told ET's Lauren Zima. "I'm upset about it. The day it happened I actually texted them. I don't know what happened there, [Chris] is still living in the house. Let's pray it turns around."
Pratt and Faris' reps told ET, "Patti Stanger is not an authorized spokesperson for Anna and Chris and her comments (about their marital status and personal life) are invalid."
Still, Stanger is hoping the two can work it out. "I want them to get back together. So, I'm not fixin' them up -- I would just be the counselor between them and go, 'What really is the issue here?'" she went on. "Because she's living in the house, so someone threw out the curveball."
Stanger says that, like fans, she was "very surprised" and "in shock" when she heard the two were calling it quits
after eight years of marriage.
"I was actually on my Instagram reading, I was watching someone, and [Anna's post] just popped up," Stanger explained. "I'm talking to Sim [Sarna], who is like her right hand and best friend, and I gave her -- I don't wanna bombard [Anna], but I do want them to know … anything they need from me, I'm there for them. I just love [them] both and I just pray that it's going to work out."
Stanger says she told Pratt and Faris not to listen to the media, instead advising them to "just do your thing and see where you land."
"If [Pratt]'s still in the house, there's hope," she said. "If the person doesn't leave the house, there's a lot of hope there. That means they still love each other. Because they're not poor… they could go get a condo, Airbnb it. It's just that they don't want to leave each other. There's a lot of best friend factor there. They're very close as BFFs."
So, what does the matchmaker think could be the reason behind Pratt and Faris' seemingly out of nowhere decision to separate?
"I feel like it's communication," Stanger said. "It has nothing to do with him being [a] bigger [star] than her. She is, as we are [here] at CBS, she has the No. 1 show right now on CBS [Mom]. I should only be so lucky that Chuck Lorre makes me a show. And who are you to put her down for 40? I wanna look like that, she's stunning, OK?"
"And then [Chris] made a couple of big movies? That's not it," she continued. "But it could be, like, he's not in town with her, she's raising the kid alone and there could be issues with that."
Stanger continued on, telling ET that the two are "very grounded and down to earth."
"I've been to their house," she stated. "I don't think anyone cheated. I think it's he's on his career path to make this trajectory to become really successful at what he does and timing is off, and that could be it. And maybe she feels she's taking care of [their 4-year-old son, Jack] too much. Maybe they're not on the same page at the same time, but I don't feel like you can't work it out."
"If the sexual chemistry is there and the friendship factor is there and they have a kid -- if you get the right person to handle it, it can retool itself," she added.
