The realtor, who recently moved to Peekskill from Cortlandt Manor, spent last July and August filming an episode of "House Hunters," which was shown Monday, Aug. 29 at 10 p.m.
In the show, filmed over eight days, Patalano helps a young Brooklyn couple find a home where they hope to start a family. She said he never applied for the job -- "Somehow, they just found me!" -- and was given a lot of leeway.
"Nothing was staged," she stressed. The group filmed at three properties in the Peekskill area working from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"I had an absolutely amazing time," she added. And hopefully will get to reprise her role.
Said Patalano: "They are interested in filming with me again and I'm thrilled about that."
