Adrienne Maloof sat down with ET to respond to the scrutiny she's received for dating a man 28 years younger than her.
After relocating from our interview room, which was accidentally flooded by fire sprinklers, ET's Brooke Anderson asked Maloof, 52, and her 24-year-old boyfriend Jacob Busch their thoughts on being called a cougar-cub couple.
"It's a label. It's a name. Who cares?" said Maloof, a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills until this past March.
Her boyfriend, heir to the Anheuser-Busch beer company, revealed that this isn't the first time he's dated an older woman and has previously been involved with women in their 40s and 50s.
Maloof, the daughter of billionaire entrepreneur George J. Maloof, Sr, says the only thing that matters for her and Busch is that they enjoy each other's company.
"If you enjoy somebody's company, it doesn't matter whether they're 55 or 25. It's what you enjoy. If you're having a good time, why not?" she said.
