Instead of leaving Million Dollar Matchmaker with a love story, one contestant left with a horror story! Sonya Bright exclusively revealed to how Patti Stanger's reality dating show is completely staged.

Bright, whose episode of Million Dollar Matchmaker aired in August, claimed she was forced to appear on the show even though she had a boyfriend at the time of filming.

"I met him in between signing the contract and going on the show," Bright told at her manager Johnny Donovan's 30th birthday celebration on September 30 in New York City. "But they didn't care. They made me go on the show knowing I had a boyfriend who is my soon-to-be fiancé."

But the experience only got worse when they started filming, as she accused the show of being fake.

"There is nothing real about the show," she said. "Patty is fed lines, she doesn't even know what to say. They try to feed us lines. It was a pretty crappy experience."

She accused Stanger of being "fake" too.

"Patti is a b***h," she blasted. "Patti as a person is f**ked up. She's not a nice person. She tried everything to get an emotional response out of me from talking about my dead father to calling me mean girl names."

Although Bright didn't expect to find lasting love when she signed up for the show, she didn't think the show would be so "sh***y."

"The show was a horror story," she said. "I was very difficult for them."

During the episode, Bright was called a "b***h" by Stanger for seeming apathetic throughout the experience. Bright even tried to quit because she didn't like the men chosen for her.

"Why are you doing this?" Stanger yelled at Bright. "You're the one who signed up, no one put a gun to your head! I think she's rejecting men because she's worried she's the one who's going to be rejected because she's a b***h. No one is ever going to love you!"
