Candace Bushnell became a household name when her New York Observer column was adopted into the hit HBO series, “Sex and the City.” Bushnell’s real-life relationship with publishing executive Ron Galotti became the inspiration for the show’s Mr. Big character, who much of the story centered around. Carrie Bradshaw would be proud to learn that Candace is now pursuing a much younger man.

Bushnell is currently 63-years-old. According to Page Six, she has been dating a 21-year-old model. The two have been spotted at fashion shows and on dates all over the place.

A source was unable to name the young model. That does not mean the story isn’t true. Another friend of Candace Bushnell said she has been “talking to” the young man, which the friend said is code for dating.

The wild dating life of Candace Bushnell reflects the type of characters fans fell in love with in the long-running series. In addition to her 21-year-old beau, Candace’s pal also noted that she is being pursued by a 91-year-old man. Bushnell’s real-life exploits were reflected by the creators of the show.


Candace Bushnell is currently performing in a one-woman show, called “Is There Still Sex In the City?” Given her current relationship status, it looks like she is answering her question. Candace has all the age groups covered.

As of December, Candace said she was not dating anybody. If her friends are to be believed, that is no longer true. Bushnell is truly living up to the reputation that launched a pop culture phenomenon.
