Last night while we were laughing at Lindsay Lohan, TLC aired Extreme Cougar Wives, which sounds like a fake show some savvy sitcom would invent to skewer network that brought you Extreme Couponing and Sister Wives. But it was real, and so were its cougar wives to whatever extent people are real when they go on reality TV to be weird.
The highlight was 76-year-old Hattie, a loose-lipped free spirit who managed to be both shameless about her love of younger men (and her love of younger men's love) and tongue-in-cheek (and -pool, I guess) about how over the top her sexual expression is. She would come off as ridiculous at any age — her senior status only makes more more interesting. Everything she says is magic.
