Go ahead—call Vivica A. Fox a cougar. “[I’m] fine with it, because I was in my forties when [cougars] started becoming all the rage,” the actress, now 44, told RadarOnline.com. “I was like, ‘it’s about time you see that women in their 40s are in their prime!’”
Fox is the host of TV Land’s new reality show, The Cougar, which premieres on April 15. On the series, Fox guides 40-year-old single mom Stacey Anderson through a throng of 20-somethings vying for her attention. Fox, who has had relationships with younger men like 50 Cent and ex-husband Christopher Harvest, seemed a perfect fit for the role—and she wasn’t afraid to give Anderson her expert advice behind the scenes. “There were a couple of guys that she liked, that I was like, are you serious? They were so transparent,” she said. (Luckily, she said, those men eventually got the ax.)
