Celebrity Age-Gap Couples: Erika Jayne & Tom Girardi | Richard Gere & Alejandra Silva

Sarah Hearon reported for US Weekly  (April 23, 2020): The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star [Erika Jayne]  [...] met her current husband, Tom Girardi, in the ‘90s [1999] when she was working at Chasen’s restaurant in Los Angeles.

Jayne shared that she approached Girardi who is 32 years her senior: “After a year of working in the restaurant, one night I decided to slip Tom my telephone number,” she recalled in her 2018 memoir, Pretty Mess. “We were standing in front of the giant fireplace. ‘Did you hear I was single?’ I asked.”

Here Jayne explains that the significant age gap is insignificant: “Tom is 33 years older than me. It was always a bigger deal to everyone else than it was to either of us. All a couple really needs is to have the same life philosophy. If you see things the same way, then age, race, religion—none of that comes into play,” she wrote in Pretty Mess. "I have a thirst for knowledge and Tom has a wealth of it. He is a great mentor, a great teacher and somebody I really admire … That kind of stuff is a powerful aphrodisiac."

And Leah Bitsky reported for Page Six (April 23, 2020): "Richard Gere, 70, and wife Alejandra Silva, 37, have welcomed their second child together, a baby boy, the actor’s rep confirmed to Page Six [...] Gere and Silva secretly tied the knot in early 2018 after dating for four years.

Lastly, Anna Rumber of Pop Culture (April 23, 2020) related: ¡Hola! reports that Gere and Silva had an "instant connection" when they first met in 2014 at a hotel that Silva was managing in Italy.
