Who cares right? I’m not much of a celebrity watcher but the story caught my eye because her fiancé is a dancer and model. I like “Dancing with the Stars”, so I scanned the article and boy was it an eye-opener. Ivana is 58 years old and her fiancé, Rossano Rubicondi, is 35. Yikes! It gets better. The ceremony is to be held at Donald Trump’s Florida Estate Mar-a-Lago. Yes, she is getting married at the house she lived in with her first husband. Why on earth would anyone want to get hitched there? Geeze, is that materialistic or what?
And what about that age difference? I’m all for older women younger men relationships being an older woman myself. However, just what are you going to have in common with someone more than a generation younger (or older) than yourself? When she was 18, it was 1967. When he was 18, it was 1990. Or how about, when she is 70, he’ll be 47 – yuck! It reminds me of a scene from “When Harry Met Sally” with Billy Crystal. He is describing the age gap between himself and a new girlfriend: “I asked her where was she when Kennedy was shot and she said ‘Ted Kennedy was shot?” Rossano will be Ivana’s third husband, so this could either be “third time is the charm” or “three strikes and your out”.
