55-year Old Virgin: Tv Host, Financial Guru Suze Orman 'never Been With Man'

Saw this on Drudge...

Quote:
NEW YORK In an interview for The New York Times Magazine this coming Sunday, financial guru and TV host Suze Orman gets on Deborah Solomon's case for not looking out for her own money, partly because "you are a woman." This inspires Solomon to ask Orman if she is married.

Orman says she "has a relationship with life," so Solomon presses her, and Suze then reveals that her "life partner" is Kathy Travis and, "We're going on seven years. I have never been with a man in my whole life. I'm still a 55-year-old virgin."

Orman says they'd like to get married, and both "have millions of dollars in our name. It's killing me that upon my death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa."

Pressed again, she says that estimates that she is worth $25 million are "pretty close."

She says she has about a million dollars in the stock exchange, because if she loses it all "I don't personally care."

I don't really have an opinion on the article, but something struck me funny on Drudge about this headline and the headline that directly followed it:

I've never been with a man either. And I'm not worth $25 million.

Well, you gotta admit that is pretty interesting. How many women that look "do'able" that you know are 55 yrs old and have never lain with a man? I'm betting ZERO.

Judging from the comments here, I would say to her: stay the course, lady. d00dz aren't worth it.
However, maybe her line should be:

I don't care. Personally, I'm just happy that after 200 years there has finally been a beaver spotted in NYC.

I'm not sure how this is news. I'd wager that most lesbians have never been with a man.

I'd guess the article is being done because same sex couples are getting more and more rights in some states, like NJ just allowed civil unions, which is basically the same thing as marriage, just not called marriage. And its Suzie Orman! She's a fairly well known cable TV personality, and I think she's pretty smart...

I think the headline is really misleading, but it got my attention and I'll probably read the article tomorrow morning. I should note that the NYTimes Magazine thats its being printed in is separate from the normal Sunday Times, its just like any other maginze on the news stands, just included with the Sunday NYTimes.
