Maloof, 51, and Stewart, 32, began dating in January 2013. Not taking kindly to being called a cougar, Maloof pointed out that “Men do it all the time.” Citing Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Demi Moore as dating younger men, she referred to herself as a “trendsetter.”
Confident that the relationship would work Maloof said, "Age is just a number. It's about how good of a person you are . . . [Sean] is a very funny guy. He's very giving, he mentors at the mission, works with at-risk children, and gives his time and money to get children off the streets."
Having announced on March 4 that she’s leaving “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Maloof plans on focusing her efforts on work and her three sons, Gavin, 9, and twins Christian and Colin, 6. Dating is on the back burner right now.
