When I think Mother’s Day, I think of flowers, dinner, family, bonding, life, love and, of course, mom.
Moms throughout time have been stereotyped as a stay-at-home woman who cooks, cleans, and takes care of the kids. Now don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that — it’s a full time job to be a mom. It’s just that nowadays, so many moms balance the work/home lifestyle and are great at it, but also have the modern-day societal pressure to look “hot” doing it.
Last week, to celebrate Mother’s Day in Atlantic City, there was a “Hot Moms” contest presented by Boogie Nights at Resorts. I know it may sound offensive to some, but I like the idea of it. The concept celebrates a beautiful woman and points out that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So don’t feel discouraged if you think you are not a hottie; you just better enter that contest next year!
In the meantime, with all of this hotness going around and women feeling pressured to always look good and maintain a healthy weight, now we have some hot mamas running around town too. When women are getting older, feeling better and looking hotter, of course the natural step, for the single woman is to find yourself a man (or woman, but that’s for another column). Now I don’t know about you, but I feel as though people can have a connection regardless of age, sex, race, creed or whatever. Meaning you can be a 40-year old woman who falls in love with a 25-year-old man and vice versa.
But nowadays if you fall into that older woman/younger man scenario, there is a term that society labels the woman and that would be a “cougar.” In case you’ve never heard that term, according to a few sources it’s a woman over the age of 40 who dates males 10 years or more younger than herself. I actually think it’s pretty funny and I see nothing wrong with it.
If you find the love of your life and he’s younger, then good for you. And you know what, if you find the love or your life and he’s older, well then good for you too!
Don’t let society’s labels sway your decisions when it comes to anything, especially love. But if you are a hot cougar and you want to meet someone then you may be in luck because this Saturday night from 9-11pm, Cindy Margolis, who is fresh off her No.1-rated TV show Seducing Cindy, and is the new co-host of the Internet-based talk show the John Kerwin Show, will be at Ego Lounge inside the Trump Taj Mahal hosting a Cubs and Cougars dating game on Saturday night, May 15 (click here for more information). Plus Margolis will also be available for photos.
While on the subject of hot, make sure to drop by one of the hottest Atlantic City pizza joints in town, Tony Boloney’s, for the world’s largest pizza-eating competition — the “Pizza Slaughter Fest” — this Saturday, May 15, starting at noon. (Click here for more information.)

I’ll be judging the competition and I hope to see you there at this fun community event. Come out to Tony Boloney’s at 300 Oriental Ave. in Atlantic City.
