Say Hello to Miss Cougar America
If you thought this whole cougar phenomenon was going away, think again. At the first-ever National Cougar Convention held last week in Palo Alto, California, more than 200 cougars and the young men who love them got together to crown Miss Cougar America.
Gloria Navarro, 42 (that's her on the right) won the crown. Navarro, who was recently divorced after a 20 year marriage did not cry, carry a bouquet or even wear a crown. That's just not the cougar way of doing things, you see.
"I went from soccer mom with short hair, flat-heeled shoes and fanny packs to cougar," Navarro told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I believe every woman has a cougar in them - someone who doesn't need a man for anything other than companionship."
And in other cougar news, Courtney Cox will be starring in a new TV series called Cougar Town, a pilot for ABC. She plays a 40-year-old mother who's newly single and on the prowl. She's looking pretty hot in the video promo for the show:
