Urban Cougar


So I learned this term for the very first time, while watching The Real Housewives of the OC.

I had no clue until Quinn Fry talked about it. She was talking about how she dates younger men. Well I had to Google “Urban Cougar” to get the definition cause I’m snart like that. I found this definition at Urban Dictionary dot Com.

Cougar

(see also hunt, prowl, corner, pounce). Noun. A 35+ year old female who is on the “hunt” for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. “Man is cougar’s number one prey”

Millions of them. More famously, Demi and Ashton, Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger, Joan Collins and her hubby, Cameron and Justin, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.

Then my mom told me about a family friend. Names changed to protect the innocent. She said, “Julie, Did you know that Jane is an Urban Cougar?” I almost lost it. I literally spit my drink out. I said, “Mom, where did you hear that word.” Oh, Jane’s mother got the term from, where of course, The Real Housewives of the OC.

Gotta love how this show is coming into our daily lives here in Orange County.

So the husband calls me today. He is a professional home theater installer. He tells me that he won’t be home early, cause he needs to go near Coto aka Cota de Caza. I said, “Oh, are you going to go pick up yourself a real housewife?” He replies, “No duh, I’m going to get me a cougar”.

I replied with a growl….

I love the term "Cougar"... it's so fitting for the over-tanned, over-botoxed, over-boobed, gal on the prowl!In any case, I linked her via a BlogHer link and see that you are in OC and I am starting a new "group" blog focusing on Orange County (along the lines of Seattle Moms Blog) and am recruiting heavily for writers... if you are interested, or just want more details, you can drop me an email via my blog (where there is a little post about the whole thing).Thanks!
