Actress Vivica Fox isn't ashamed to be called a cougar and is using her experience to host TV Land's new reality dating show, 'The Cougar.'

"I was so happy to see it was going to be a grown-up, sexy form of a dating show. It's about time people understand that cougars are all the rage," Fox told PopEater. "We have to inform, empower and enlighten the rest of American women and let them know if they happen to meet a guy who is younger to give him a chance. It's okay," she said.
