Carolyn Hennesey's Got it Right
Unless you're a daytime soap fan, you're probably unfamiliar with Carolyn Hennesy. But the "General Hospital" star knows a thing or two about cougars - having starred in "Cougar Club" and coming to "Cougar Town" this fall in a role she calls "queen cougar." She sat down with The Trades and had many frank and insightful things to say about cougars.
The Trades: I guess the term, cougar -- I'd always thought it was slightly denigrating, but it seems to have been accepted and embraced by women in their forties.
Carolyn Hennesy: Oh, absolutely! It stands for women empowering themselves. It stands for women not necessarily going out with protector/father/supplier figures -- that they are the ones in charge, that they will no longer be dominated by an older man.
It's normal for men to want, oh, oral sex from a woman, going out with trophy wives and dumping their loyal steadfast partners of umpteen years for younger models. When women do find themselves single, why is it wrong that they want to take comfort and just have a good time with a younger man? There's nothing wrong with it -- it's become kind of a badge of honor.
Carolyn knows what's what. And she's a fiery hot redhead. We love her.
