Trophy Wives..

Watching Desperate Housewives in Star World..I came across the character of Gabrielle Solis (played by Eva Longoria)..interesting character..which i think closely matches the term "trophy wife". She is an example of a trophy wife - former model, glamorous, sparkles shiny..the kind of accessory men would want in their arms..


Celebrities had been prime models of this phenomenon..Micheal Douglas-Catherine Zeta Jones; Donald Trump-Melania; Rod Stewart-Penny Lancaster...



What could be the reason? Is it psychological? I feel that these men..way in their 50s and 60s think that they 'deserve' a leaner model by their side after decades of hard work..and thats why these women are labeled trophies!! Meanwhile, simultaneously, something else happens..The new successful men attracts women..Women whom these 'elderly' men would never dream of hitting on them now..

The trophy wives had now become like exhibits..just like owning a mansion or a BMW..They become a status symbol..

Now, whom to be blamed? The older men looking for the trophies? or the young women willing to become the trophies?

Being a trophy wife comes with advantages in itself:
1. these rich oldies have seen much in there life and now they only want to find a good looking DOLL in a family.
2. they are all the time busy in business at hand...so peace for the lady
3. no worries of someone stealing them..coz not many chicks like to be a trophy wife
4. sex...depends on how old this guy is and how interested trophy wive is in having sex with him
5. chances of he leaving this world is very high...leaving trophy wife with all the property this guy earned in all his life. So easy money is always welcome...no matter wht source.


Its not only gals who want to become trophy wives...for eg: Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher. Can he be called trophy husband??

tulipspeaks said...

@m000nie - love..hmm..maybe..but don't the men love their spouse who had been with them for decades through thick and thin?


@pari - this is what i think happening..hehehe...again, is this where the lines of supply and demand meet? :P

Unfortunately, the way I see it, neither side is to blame. The man gets what he wants (a beautiful escort that he can has sex with whenever he wants) and the woman gets what she wants (a man who is so successful that she does not have to work. She can shop all day and all she has to do is have sex when he wants to have sex). Definitely a mutually benificial situation.

@Icy
and sex wid this old men.. i mean wat if he is not capable or sumthin like dat..
This is the possibility I Was talking in #4

Now...obviously oldies may not be in a position to satisfy trophy wives...so they are left with many options...

Like in DH, Gabrielle is having "fun" with gardener...so thats it.

no comments ... i m in bad mood ... sorry am00nie , just killing my time by jumping on all blogs.

....... st000nie .......

tulipspeaks said...

@organised_noise - don't you think this relationship is not a relationship at all?


@icey - hehehe..cant ever imagine why wud anyone wanna do this..

but that is happening around us..Zeta is hot..even i don't see what she sees in Douglas :(

@st000nie - poor gal..take care of yourself sweety

Vivhyd said...

nice post amutha.. well strange it does seem with the beauties (with no brains???) finding love in older men.. unexplainable..

well this post reminds me of a joke in one of the sitcom.. Everybody Loves Raymond where raymond's mom says she is a trophy wife and his dad responds with a "Wht contest in hell did I win?"
lol!! ..

Keshi said...

Gosh Im so late here...reat post btw am000nie...gets us all thinking :)

To be honest trophy wives wont last that long...even Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones r apparently falling apart...when a man is too old for his wife (especially a glamour girl), she starts looking elsehwere...unless the marriage was based on pure love n appreciation for each other.

But I like older men..lol I dunno why...they r kinda sexy ;-) I fell head over heels in love with Richard Gere n also with Kevin Costner sometime ago...so yeah who knows I could be a trophy wife soemday but I will for sure stand by my man :)

k000kie..at last you are here,my sweety

Is this some kind of confession or what..???

=am000nie-wonders=

tulipspeaks said...

@vivhyd - aaww..its rather sad to find terms like beauty-with-no-brains right? btwn..ur joke was hillarious..thanks for sharing it with us

Organized Noise said...

@ [==amutha==] . . . It's not a relationship in the terms that we see relationships. It's more like a business agreement.

Jim said...

We just want a nice hand bag to make the other guys jealous

hey nice post...

Actually u cant blame a single person...

U cant clap with one hand...

What say

Cheers

hey sis..
wht a great post...
u wrote tis after watching the series of desperate housewives?
okie...
honestly, i think tht thr is no particular party to be blamed...
the old, rich man wants sumthing to be exhibited to their frenz n others...
the beautiful n young woman wants comfort life n its their own decision to bcome "trophy wife"......they r not forced to be married to older man...

tulipspeaks said...

@ organised_noise - precisely. this is what i meant, in fact :P

@ puneet - like what organised_noise had mentioned..can we consider this a win-win situation for both?..and a business agreement, that it is..

tulipspeaks said...

-@nith@-

for those who don't know..this is my lovely sis..thanks for dropping..gee..i had to bribe her to post her comment in my blog..at last she did :)

u wrote tis after watching the series of desperate housewives?

of course, we are watching it together..don't forget that!! and i knw how bad you want Gabrielle to be exposed by her M-I-A..hehehehe..at the same time, you also always say that she is having an affair because her husband is not paying attention to her..

so, it was not surprising me when you feel both parties are responsible for this..
