Vivica A. Fox Speaks on Older Women dating Younger Men

October 5, 2015

Vivica A. Fox appeared on the Today's show to talk about her new reality series “The Cougar”, she says, “The Cougar” isn't just a job — it's a way of life.”

“I met a couple of people recently who sparked my interest,” the “Kill Bill” star, 44, tells PEOPLE. “And yes, I am being a cougar! They are all much younger than me. I always tell them I am in my 40s up front. “

Fox says the show is “empowering” for women like Stacey Anderson, 40, the “cougar” who is the object of affection for 20 young hopefuls on the new TV Land series, which airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.

“A lot of people think that because a woman is older and is going to date a younger guy that she just wants a young stud muffin in bed,” she says. “No! That is not the case. The show will show that age is just a number.”

As for her own dating status, “I am single right now,” she says. “I am a different breed of chick. I like to go by the beat of my own drum. I haven't found a man that I want to answer to.”

Viv's show has a great topic of discussion, I'm just wondering if she'll feature some “black love” on her show as well.  It seems her reality shows are never really her own reality?  I was quite disappointed with “The Glam God.”

As far as dating younger men, I can't see myself with anybody more than 5 years younger than me, how about you?  Does younger men tickle your fancy or turn you off?
