Extreme Cougar Wives: Older Ladies Court Much Younger Guys

11/04/2012 at 03:00 PM EST



Age is only a number for the three couples featured in TLC's new Extreme Cougar Wives special.

The one-hour program, airing Nov. 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET, follows three older women – Hattie, Stephanie and Jude – and their romances with significantly younger men.

Hattie, 76, is introduced by calling her lifestyle "extreme." Seen with her arms around a guy who is clearly very much her junior, she explains, "There are a lot of people who use the word 'cougar' to describe an older woman who sleeps with younger men."



When her date says to her, "You don't mind being naked – you enjoy it," she tells him, "Skin. I love skin."

Then there's Stephanie, 65, who is head-over-heels for 28-year-old Octavio.

"I'm 37 years older than he is," she says of her beau, whose friends do not approve of their relationship. "You can't control who you fall in love with."

The third woman, Jude, 53, met her 21-year-old boyfriend Kevin when he dated her daughter seven years ago.

"It's amazing what falling in love will do for your self-image," Jude says.

After a scene that shows the pair appearing to exchange vows, Kevin says, "How the hell am I going to tell my parents?"

When he finally does drop the bombshell, his mom angrily says, "So she's older than your mother?"
