For Any Successful Woman Who's Screamed 'Ivana Young Man' - It's Ivana Trump to the Rescue

[via press release from FOX]

FOR ANY SUCCESSFUL WOMAN WHO'S SCREAMED "IVANA YOUNG MAN" - IT'S IVANA TRUMP TO THE RESCUE

Two-Hour Matchmaking Special to Air on FOX

This fall, Ivana Trump, relationship survivor and role model to ex-wives around the world, plays Cupid in the two-hour FOX reality special IVANA YOUNG MAN (working title), it was announced today by Mike Darnell, Executive Vice President of Specials and Alternative Programming. Adding a new twist to the May-December romance theme, IVANA YOUNG MAN gives a successful but lonely 40-something woman the opportunity to find a 20-something man who can complete her lavish lifestyle.

"For years, rich older men have traded in their wives for pretty young women with bigger 'attributes,'" said Darnell. "Thanks to women like Ivana Trump, Demi Moore and Cher, the social norms are changing, and mature women are finding that true love can happen with younger men."

Trump, who coined the famous phrase "Don't get mad, get everything," will hand-pick eight eligible 20-something bachelors who will vie for the affection of a more mature, well-to-do lady. Some are young studs who love the easy life, while others spend their time climbing the corporate ladder. Serving as a teacher, expert and guide, Trump will assist in weeding out the competition, kicking the young bucks to the curb - until only two are invited behind the velvet ropes of the jet-set search for romance. The final choice will be made by the lovelorn socialite - will she find true, 24-karat love, or fool's gold? Casting for the socialite and her male suitors will begin immediately.

A native of Czechoslovakia, Trump earned a master's degree in physical education and languages at Charles University in Prague, then immigrated to Montreal, Canada, where she began modeling. After a chance meeting with Donald Trump in New York, Ivana and Donald began dating and were married a year later in 1977. Ivana took on several business roles in the Trump organization, including Vice President of interior design on projects such as Trump Tower, Grand Hyatt Hotel on 42nd Street and Trump Plaza. Ivana also served for many years as CEO and President of Trump's Castle Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, and later was CEO and President of the legendary Plaza Hotel in New York for four years. Rumors of marriage trouble hit the front pages of publications nationwide, and the Trumps eventually separated in 1990, with their marriage ending in divorce in 1992.

Although people wondered what would become of Ivana after the failed marriage, she has proven to be a powerhouse in business, establishing two companies, Ivana, Inc. and Ivana Haute Couture. In addition to writing two fiction books, "For Love Alone" and "Free to Love," she also penned a non-fiction book, "The Best is Yet to Come."

IVANA YOUNG MAN is executive-produced by Scott A. Stone, Sharon Levy and Anthony Ross with Jonas Larsen serving as co-executive producer.

After 14 years as founding partner of Stone Stanley Entertainment, IVANA YOUNG MAN is the first show to be produced under Scott A. Stone's yet-to-be-named new banner. As part of Stone Stanley, Stone executive produced a wide array of reality, game, comedy and talk television series including: "The Mole," "The Man Show," "The Joe Schmo Show," "Popstars," "Fame" and "Loveline."
