News broke this week that Demi Moore may have a new, young, Australian boyfriend. Happily, Kathie Lee and Hoda just happened to have on hand a new survey around that identified the highest concentration of "cougars" by international city.
Surprise! There are a lot in Australia.
In fact, of the three top cougar centers in the world (Sydney, Dallas, and Melbourne), two are in Australia. And it turns out that the ladies are both fans of the men of the southern hemisphere and were unsurprised that other women felt the same.
Hoda said she was a fan of The Mentalist's Simon Baker and TODAY friend and Curtis Stone, the hunky chef.
As for Kathie Lee, "I love my husband, you know I do," she swooned. "But, if anything did happen, I'd go young and Australian."
But, she added: "I'm not planning on it!" You're safe (for now), young antipodeans.
