“Extreme Cougar Wives” … TLC Is Going There

Ami Angelowicz / November 6, 2012

Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them.

In this instance, the adjective “extreme” when used in conjunction with the word “cougar” means that there is a 20-year or larger age gap between the couples. Or as the distraught mother of one of the boys puts it when he introduces his much, much older wife, “So, she’s older than your mother?!”

Oh yeah. That could be uncomfortable. Which is exactly why this show should be a lot of fun. Hey, it worked for Harold and Maude. So reserve your judgmental glares until Sunday, November 25. Check out the preview above. [TLC]
