Story Details

BLONDE...BUSTY... BUBBLY......AND ON THE ARM OF A SUGAR DADDY...

"A woman will perhaps trade her youth and her beauty for his experience money and position," said Jereamy Courdeux.

THEY'RE OFTEN LABELLED AS GOLD DIGGERS....LOOKING FOR A WEALTHY OLDER MAN...IN EXCHANGE FOR THEIR YOUTH AND GOOD LOOKS.

REALITY TV STAR... BRYNNE EDELSTON...PLAYMATE CRYSTAL HARRIS.. AND THE LATE ANNA NICOLE SMITH... ARE JUST WHO BECAME FAMOUS... FOR HOOKING THEMSELVES A WELL HEELED SENIOR ... TWICE.. EVEN THREE TIMES THEIR AGE.

"People use to say that Marilyn Monroe was the stupid blonde right, Marilyn Monroe was one of the smartest women in Hollywood and I think Brynne is smart too she was an aerobics instructor in Texas, living in obscurity where there's a 100 blondes with big boob. She hooks herself onto Geoffery Edleston, look at her now."

BUT BRYNNE AND GEOFFRY EDELSTON'S HIGH PROFILE RELATIONSHIP ....RECENTLY CAME TO A SCREECHING HALT.

WITH AN EXTRA LARGE AGE GAP OF 39 YEARS... WAS IT ANY WONDER THEIR LOVE DIDN'T LAST?

"Do you think she's a gold digger ?"

"After watching those reality shows she was on, I really loved her and thought she was really genuine"

"I think she's an opportunist but I think Geoffery Edleston is also an opportunist. I don't think anyone is badly done by"

CAN TRUE LOVE OVER COME AN AGE DIFFERENCE OF 20 YEARS OR MORE ?

WELL WE PUT THE QUESTION TO OUR PANEL... LOVE DOCTOR JANE DONOVAN... SOCIAL COMMENTATOR AMANDA BLAIR AND KELLY NOBLE FROM GLAM ADELAIDE....

"Is it possible to find love with a much older man? What do we think?"

"It may be in the now you can but fast forward 20 years beyond if you have a girl that's 30 and a guy 50 if we fast forward we have a 50 and 70. Now a 50 year old woman is hitting her stride, then he's 70 he's at a whole different stage of life."

"If you've had kids you've put a lot of nappies on kids, you don't want to be doing it to your husband."

"Drop the pants here and we're going to look at bums, we're going to look at a 30 year old bum, a 50 year old bum, you can tell the difference at a blind tasting."

ALL JOKES ASIDE ... IS IT THE SECURITY OR THE MATURITY .... OR A COMBO OF BOTH ....

"I dated an older man I found it really interesting because he was smart and he was successful and he'd done great thinks with his life and there was a part of me that wanted to attach myself to that, obviously we didn't continue on with the relationship. I think a lot of women have the father figure complex."

"A lot of my friends are dating older guys and I think they like being taken out for nice dinners, they like having intelligent conversations and they like feeling settled knowing they've got routine in their lives and not crazy with a younger relationship but I am seeing a lot of those women in their 30s who want to have kids and this is where the big problem comes up."

TIME TO ASK THE MEN WHO ARE HAPPILY MARRIED TO YOUNGER WOMEN...

"Two years older or 22 years older, it doesn't really matter."

"Fidelity and devotion for a start you have to be devoted to each other."

FORMER AUSSIE RULES STAR AND MEDIA PERSONALITY GRAHAM CORNES .. AND HIS THIRD WIFE NICOLE ARE A GENERATION APART ...

"It was initially a physical attraction from my point of view, there's not doubt about it," said Graham Cornes.

BUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPED IN ALL ASPECTS.. AND AT 24... NICOLE BECAME A STEP MOTHER TO GRAHAM'S TWO BOYS... AND THEY THEN WENT ON TO HAVE THREE MORE CHILDREN TOGETHER...

"She's been a fantastic partner and we've been able to do all things together, I don't want to be soppy about it, but it's been remarkable and I've been very very lucky," said Graham Cornes.

IN THE 20 YEARS THEY'VE BEEN MARRIED.. GRAHAM SAYS AGE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ISSUE....

"It's always a problem for other people rather than us," said Graham Cornes.

"You know there's that sneaky, sneaky kind of feeling... here's that guy, he's got that beautiful girl on his arm, it must be because she's after his money or it must be because of something else. It can't be because they love each other, oh no," said Jereamy Courdeux.

5AA RADIO PERSONALITY JEREMY CORDEAUX... HAS BEEN ALSO ENJOYED OVER TWO DECADES OF WEDLOCK... WITH CAROLINE... WHO'S 18 YEARS HIS JUNIOR...

"This kind of obsession people have with the chronology, age is nothing more than a number, it's not a qualitification it's not something that excludes, precludes or concludes, it's just the years have gone by and that's the number you're at at the moment," said Jereamy Courdeux.

AND OUR PANEL AGREES.. WHEN IT COMES TO FALLING IN LOVE .... IT CAN BE THE PERSON ... NOT THE PURSE STRINGS ...

"If you find someone that's great, and loving and interesting and ticks all the boxes really you sort of forget about age."
