Jerry Hall Mick Jagger's ex, Jerry Hall, has turned over a new stone. On May 29, the 49-year-old model-actress unveils her new VH1 reality show Kept, in which she coaches young men on the finer things in life.
ON KEPT There are 12 unsophisticated guys, and I train them in everything from etiquette to the art of conversation. The winner gets to be "kept" by VH1: He gets an apartment, a car, and all sorts of good things. It's fun.
ON WHAT MICK THINKS OF THE SHOW At first he was furious. He said, "Well, I've been asked to do a show where I date 30 16-year-olds." But we've known each other 30 years, and we're very supportive of each other's projects. Now he's going to be on the show. He suggested we teach the guys about French wine.
ON WHAT'S NEXT FOR HER I've been doing a lot of plays. I've done two movies and a couple of TV series. But I take time off between my projects to be with my children. I'm much happier in my 40s than I was in my 20s. I know what I like and don't have to do the things I don't like.
