Michael Leslie Bernback was arrested at his Sherman Oaks, California home on Thursday morning after being accused of rape.
ET confirmed that the 62-year-old businessman had two warrants out for his arrest for the rape of two women. After posting bail, which was set at $300,000, Bernback was released. He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 3.
Local news station CBS2 caught Bernback being escorted out of his house by police. He was barefoot and wearing a robe.
Some neighbors claimed seeing Bernback with women on a regular basis.
"It’s generally two girls a night," one woman told CBS2. "It’s probably three or four nights a week, and I was waiting for it to implode."
Bernback was a client of matchmaker Patti Stanger in a 2011 episode of Bravo's reality show Millionaire Matchmaker. In the episode, it is said that he's worth $8 million, and he also claims to have 10 homes.
"He invented some review that was a rip off of Chippendale's," Stanger said in her Nov. 15, 2011 Bravo blog about Bernback. "He made his money that way. Now he's trying to be a fledgling songwriter. Not so cool with what he does."
Stanger was not a fan of the wealthy businessman, calling him "obnoxious."
She also went into detail as to the women he was looking to date.
"Michael wants to have a baby breeder," she blogged. "Now when someone comes to me at 58 years old needing a baby breeder -- there's no way. You're going to get 38 and up -- 38 and up that's my bar. Take it or leave it. He agrees to it, but you can tell he's pissed off."
ET reached out to Bravo, but the network did not have a comment.
