'Extreme Cougar Wives': She Met Her Husband At Her Daughter's Junior High Dance -- He Was A Student

When Kevin was 14-years-old, he met Jude at a junior high school dance. She was there as a chaperone -- her daughter was one of Kevin's classmates. Kevin is now 21-years-old and Jude is his 53-year-old wife. The TLC special "Extreme Cougar Wives" was there when the couple announced that they'd gotten married -- in a handfasting ceremony -- to Kevin's parents.

Understandably, they were stunned. Especially Kevin's mother, who is younger than Jude.

"No, Kevin. This is not normal. You know that this is not normal," Kevin's mother told him. "Why are you doing this to us?"

Kevin said, "We didn’t plan getting together. We didn’t calculate it. It just happened." Jude had been managing his music career, and during their time together the two began to develop feelings for one another.

So far, critical response to the show hasn't been that positive. Variety isn't even sure if they believe its authenticity, saying it felt staged, and wondering how the cameras were explained to participants like Kevin's parents.

Meanwhile, The New York Daily News wrote that the show "exists because TLC knows most viewers will find the whole idea creepy," despite professions of love by the featured couples.
