More on The Cougar coming in April...
40 YEAR-OLD BEAUTIFUL AND SOPHISTICATED STACEY ANDERSON REVEALED AS TV LAND'S "COUGAR"
New York, NY - February 19, 2009 -- Stacey Anderson, a stunning 40-year-old successful realtor from Scottsdale, Arizona, has been named as the "Cougar" in TV Land's new original series "The Cougar," it was announced today. The eight-episode series, which is hosted by Vivica A. Fox ("Kill Bill: Vol. 1," "Curb Your Enthusiasm"), follows Anderson as she searches for love among a pool of 20 eligible twenty-something men. The one-hour elimination dating series is executive produced by Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor") through his NEXT Entertainment production company in association with Warner Horizon Television and premieres on April 15th at 10:00 pm ET/PT on TV Land PRIME.
"Stacey Anderson's vivacious personality, stunning looks and incredible heart make her the perfect choice as our 'Cougar,'" states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "She is sure to break all the stereotypes people hold about who 'cougars' are."
For years, Stacey has believed that society has placed a double standard on women who date younger men, and she is here to prove that age is nothing but a number. Stacey's dating experiences have led her to believe that men her age and older live under the pressure of a "ticking clock," which dampens their spontaneity and zest for life. Essential to Stacey's personal success is her upbeat optimism and zeal, which have not been tainted by life's adversities. She believes that younger men have the same spirited zest for life, a demeanor Stacey finds crucial for her future love interest to possess, a love interest that she plans to find on "The Cougar."
In her spare time, Stacey gives back to her community by helping to acquire affordable land for the nonprofit organization Habitat for Humanity. She also enjoys an active lifestyle by playing tennis, golf, hiking and swimming.
Stacey is currently a realtor who, in only her first year in the commercial real estate business, was ranked in the top 1% of realtors nationwide for sales over 50 million dollars.
