Let’s take a little chorus lesson; read this “FAMOUS TROPHY WIFE!” Good. What did you picture as you read that? Was it a good or a bad thought? Did you see an image of a shiny item/socialite gathering dust on the shelves? Or did you see the part where all the women in the neighborhood felt a lump in their throats when you passed by or walked to a meeting at your child’s school?
Read this out too “SUCCESSFUL MEN!” It could be a dream come true to be a billionaire’s wife. Aha! I knew there’s gotta be someone who said no to ‘trophism’ but went all yippee when it suddenly entailed being a successful man’s famous wife.
Whether a trophy, saucer, or fork wife, the labeled and ‘demonized’ title doesn’t matter to a certain batch of women who are mostly in the relationship for default wealth and power. In their world, age is just a number. Their older sugar daddy husbands would proudly flaunt them around and boast of winning the love they are so undeserving of. Do you think their ancient husbands marry them for orgasm’s sake or real love? Well, we have compiled a list of 20 famous trophy wives of successful men.
20. Courtney Stodden “Hutchinson”
When she was 16 years of age, she hit the media as the trophy wife with the most controversial story when she married the then $3 million 51-year-old famous actor Doug Hutchinson. Her parents gave a go-ahead for their marriage after her six-month-long online relationship with Hutchinson. Wait, what? What were you doing at the age of 16 when Courtney was already marrying a millionaire? The 34-year age gap took a toll on their marriage when Doug started receiving death threats, was named a pedophile, and even got disowned by his own family members. When the pressure built up too high, they sought for a divorce in 2013. They shocked the public when they remarried in 2015.
19. Wendi Deng
Getting into the picture of a married man’s pathway and sweeping him away from his wife seems to be the order of the day in trophy-wifehood. Wendi Deng is a husband-snatching type of trophy wife. She shook her bootylicious self around the 40-years-older news tycoon Rupert Murdoch enough to get him to leave his wife for her. Guess he didn’t see the quick turnaround of events looming when Wendi dumped him in pursuit of former Prime Minister Tony Blair. Holy Cow! That must have pinched Murdock high up his f***ed up marriage life. She’s got balls though. Damn it!
18. Carla Bruni “Sarkozy”
Like most women on this list, Bruni wandered around the entertainment industry for a long time as a model, singer and actress. PS, this is a no 1 trophy wife tool. You have to parade and dine with rich and famous celebrities to grasp their attention. Her proper networking landed her into a relationship with music legends Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger – neither of whom worked out fine until she met former French President Nicholas Sarkozy. She was not the first trophy wife in Sarkozy’s party. Sarkozy divorced his second wife Cecilia Ciganer and deceptively met Bruni a month after her marriage. She was certainly not his rebound when Sarkozy was serious enough to put a ring on it. So was he already dating Bruni when with Cecelia? Who knows?
17. Penny Lancaster “Stewart”
Her husband Rod Stewart is a rock legend featured as one of the richest musicians of all time. The star’s net worth stands at a freakin’ $235 million! Do you blame Penny for being attracted to this rich star? She is his third wife and the mother of his 2011-born eighth child – a secured alimony. He can still make babies; that old man’s gametes are still alive! Damn! I got stuck at their 26-year age gap though. It does not make sense how a beautiful lady as Lancaster could leave her husband for an old man. Besides his money and fame, what’s really special enough about him for her to take his bait?
16. Donna Spangler “Benveniste”
Even in her 50s she still fits into the stereotypical image of trophy wives – the sexy curvature of their bodies and blonde type of image. Duh! She is among Hollywood’s best fitness and beauty experts. She is a trophy wife in a 24-year age gap marriage with famous and wealthy periodontist Dr. Richard Benveniste. They could be having children who are the exact age as their age gap, you know? Hypothetically speaking. Her acting career still continues to date and recently sent her to films such as Eternal Waltz and American Poltergeist.
15. Alice Kim “Cage”
She was an LA-based waitress when she met her $18 million net worth husband and actor Nicolas Cage. She may have even served you once, or you might have yelled at her while she was a waitress, so insignificant in your sight she once was. Now that she has taken to fame, the whole world knows her as a rich star’s wife. Bet all the cute actresses Nicolas has met in his line of work didn’t match up to his expectations as Lisa did. Her mother didn’t quite approve of their cross-cultural 20-year age gap marriage, but they went on and got hitched anyway. Together they have a son named after Superman’s birth name, Kal-El
14. Georgina Chapman “Weinstein”
Let’s trail some records; her fashion designing, and acting career was quite somethin’ before she met her husband, head of Miramax and producer Harvey Weinstein. Of most of the wives on this list, she is better off with a remarkable education background – she graduated from the Wimbledon School of Art. Her film career and fashion business, Marchesa, started to boom in 2014 after her marriage to Weinstein and it almost seems like that was her aim. I mean she married a divorced, wealthy man who’s 24 years older, and years down the line appears on a 2015 Sunday Times Rich list with a record of $15 million net worth. I bet you want to be a trophy wife too. It’s easy money. Today she is a former Project Runway: All Stars judge, listed amongst the 10 best dressed by Tatler and on Vogue fashion fund’s top ten list.
13. Crystal Hefner
U.S. tabloids branded her as the runaway bride kind of trophy wife who chickened out of her engagement to her husband a few days before the wedding. They, however, got married in a Disney-themed wedding after a reconciliation in 2011. Their sixty-year age gap did not deter their decision after all. Did I just say 60? Yeah. Did she marry her grandpa or what? Maybe Hugh Hefner’s net worth that reads $50 million kept her locked in. Hugh married someone the age of a grand-daughter, what the hell? He seems to have been too desperate to find someone to boast around with when he picked Crystal. She is such a hottie though; I don’t blame him entirely. The Hefners are both familiar personalities in the Playboy Mansion
12. Gabi Grecko “Edelstein”
She is the famous $100 million net worth medical entrepreneur Geoffrey Edelsten’s trophy. Gabi is a sought after DJ, model and fashion designer (her designs are a bit bizarre though. Yes! Someone had to say it out loud sometime soon anyway). It is embarrassing to see her walking down the red carpet in them alongside her 46 year older husband who is always suited up in elegant suits. If all the rumors going round are true then she might not be a trophy wife for long. Edelstein might be out on a hunt for fresh prey.
11. Shawn Southwick “King”
She was evidently a trophy when she decided to marry a way older man with a rogue marriage record. Her husband Larry King was in his 7th failed marriage before he married her. Would you be a rich old man’s 8th wife? I guess not! She was born in 1957 – the same year when King made his first appearance on TV. Insane right? She doesn’t seem to be worried about the 25-year gap between them anyway. They might have married each other with a status quo I-want-to-flaunt-you-around kind of mentality that almost led to a divorce, but they halted the procedure. Rumor has it that she went to rehab in 2008 following drug addiction allegations. Does she need the drugs to survive her marriage?
10. Kayte Walsh “Grammer”
Kayte’s husband Kelsey Grammer is an actor, voice artist, comedian, producer, director and a writer with a $120 million net worth. How did he bait the former flight attendant Kayte Walsh into his arms as a 4th wife? Did he save her from a financial plane crash or what? I’ll let you answer that, but get this hint; he seems to have a knack for gorgeous young ladies as observable in his previous marriage to a Playboy model, followed by marriage to a stripper – oops, I meant exotic dancer. Wink! Or it could be Kayte’s pregnancy announcement to the public while he was still married to his third wife? Walsh doesn’t seem to mind being a 4th. Oh, she is such a natural trophy wife.
9. Suzanne Ircha “Johnson”
We all know this billionaire couple. Okay, wait do you? Suzanne is a renowned former actress and former Wall Street equity manager married to Woody Johnson. Woody is the owner of New York Jets and commands a net worth of about $6.3 billion. The 20-year age gap couple has been married since 2009 and continues to work together towards flourishing their family business. Woody is in charge of the Jets while Suzanne ensures the Jets’ merchandise and clothing are well designed to a professional touch. She quit her career to concentrate on her family. The money in the bank is full anyway.
8. Tamiko Soros
This trophy wife landed on a jackpot (kinda) marriage deal. Her $20 billion net worth husband George Soros is a reputable investor and philanthropist. The marriage came after Tamiko’s divorce and after Soros’s two divorces succeeded with five children. Tamiko’s previous life and career as a consultant cannot be equated to what she enjoys when she decides to sit in a bathtub doing nothing for a whole year. They had a small yet elegant wedding in 2013 that saw guests such as World Bank President Jim Yong in attendance. Impressive!
7. Nicole Marrow “T”
You probably know her as the curvy Playboy model who poses in lingerie and swimsuits. She also worked there for a while organizing events and parties at the Playboy Mansion. That might have been the icing that got “Ice-T” attracted to her. The age gap of 21 years did not stop this actress and model from marrying famous actor-rapper and producer “Ice-T.” Did you know he features on the list of the world’s most famous rappers with a net worth of about $35 million? Besides his two children from his previous marriage, he’s got an additional child with Coco. At least she is guaranteed of child support just in case he gets ruder years into their marriage.
6. Jessica Sklar “Seinfeld”
Picture this, en route from their honeymoon in Italy, three weeks after her wedding with Erick Nederlander; Jessica met Jerry Seinfeld at the Reebok Sports Club. She claims she was having marriage issues with her ex-husband when she met Seinfeld. Are you buying into her lie? Or are you the lot that believes she just had cold feet and feared that she married the wrong person? Well, when all was said and done, she married the famous actor, comedian, and producer a year later. Could she be targeting his $890 million net worth? I mean the guy is old – 17 years age gap kind of old.
5. Elin Nordegren “Formerly Woods”
Elin is Tiger Woods’ former damsel who ended up in a messy trophy wife scandal. She was a nanny for the famous Swedish golfer Jesper Parvekik. Her beauty and well-arched body type – the type that got Woods drunk in lust – was aimed at by other golfers who paraded Parvekik’s residence. What could rich golfers want in a sexy nanny? Is it a share of the cookie or to put a ring on it and flaunt her around like a Bugatti? Could Woods’ alleged tendency for seeking prostitutes and beautiful women be the reason why she didn’t end up being his forever love? Although the humiliation was all over the news, it is a win when the whole world finally understood her as a wealthy model and not the nanny she was before. She also scooped a huge divorce settlement deal and a career as a model enough to propel her to her $100 million net worth.
4. Salma Hayek “Pinault”
The gorgeous Mexican-American model, actress, and producer is married to French billionaire and Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault. The couple tied the knot in 2009 in Paris. The Valentine’s Day wedding came two years after their engagement was announced in public in 2007. I bet the marriage trashed out rumors that accused Pinault of proposing to her after a fake pregnancy blackmail. The rumors were further annulled when Hayek gave birth to her daughter Victoria Pinault in September.
3. Vanessa Laine “Bryant”
She was a 17-year-old high schooler when she sparked some hormones in Kobe Bryant. Vanessa qualifies as a trophy wife beside their 4-year age gap because she was a crazy young high school hottie who happened to get a famous basketballer’s arm candy. She would properly fit in the “hey my boyfriend’s rich and famous” group of trophy wives as the youngest in the WAGs clique. They met at about the same time Kobe was arching upwards into NBA fame and got married six months later. They later on divorced after Bryant pled guilty of being unfaithful in the marriage, but called off the divorce after a year.
2. Stephanie Seymour
Seymour is one of the prettiest, sexiest and most intimidatingly beautiful kind of trophy wives around. Peter Brant, her billionaire real estate developer, art collector and publisher husband, has been of great support to her career. Before she met Brant, she was a celebrated American model and actress. She has featured in incredibly high-level fashion magazines including Vogue and worked with high-end, reputable fashion designers Victoria’s Secret. She has posed for recognized photographers including Mario Testino, Herb Ritts, and Richard Avedon.
1. Melania Trump
Donald Trump spotted the model Melania at a Fashion Week Party in 1996 and married her after divorcing his then-wife, Mapple. In his interview with CNN in 2005, Trump said they get along well and have not fought since their twenty-four-year-age-gapped marriage began. Really? Is she up to the task as a First Lady though? She must have gone through lots of training and PR gimmicks to fill Michelle Obama’s shoes. The only unopposed fact about her First Ladyship is that she is the first with a modeling history, the first who is multilingual, and the second foreign citizen to become the first lady. She is also the first to have the least political contribution to her husband’s campaigns (not even her copied speech in her address to the nation in 2016 helped). Trump doesn’t need a brainy, mature and stubborn iron lady anyway, Melania is a perfect match. No wonder they “don’t fight.” Shh! The trophy wife’s hustling to rule the nation!
