Her close friend, Crystal, wants Audrey to start acting her age. "Audrey's like a mother to me, but when it comes to my children, there's just nothing grandmotherly about her," she says. "She's just a little too eccentric when it comes to her clothing."
Tyler is crazy about Audrey as well. "She's a firecracker," he says. "She's like the Energizer Bunny. She just keeps going and going and going."
Audrey affirms that she has a strong libido. "I'm living proof that you can be 62 and have a great sex life!" she cackles. "I wish I could wear a T-shirt that said, 'Please, don't hate me because I'm pretty. Hate me because your boyfriend wants me.'"
"What do you think of that overview?" Dr. Phil asks Audrey.
"I think it's great. I love it!" she says.
"When did you decide you were going to be a hot, sexy, fun party girl?" Dr. Phil probes.
"Well, maybe my 50s, 55. I decided to jump out of the box."
"Yes. It's nuts. She's crazy," Crystal says emphatically. "I think she's going through a crisis. I think she felt hidden all her life and this is the way to get out of it."
Dr. Phil runs down a list of Audrey's dating requirements. "You say that guys your age smell like Ben Gay and mothballs," he comments, sniffing his jacket. "You want no friends over 30. What is wrong with those of us over 30, and what does that say to Tyler? He's got what — eighteen months?"
"They bore me. The ones I've been with," Audrey admits.
"Yes," she replies.
"You say you want to just grow old gracefully. Did I read that right?" he asks, holding up his notes for Audrey.
Dr. Phil takes her to task. "You said that you're not doing this to get attention," he points out.
"No, I'm doing it to be different," she says, telling Dr. Phil that she drives around sometimes wearing a mask. "It's just fun."
"I never thought about it, really. She doesn't act her age," Tyler replies. "Usually, she makes me feel 70."
Turning back to Audrey, Dr. Phil says, "Are you two thinking about a long-term relationship?"
Tyler speaks up. "I don't think so. She looks this way outside, and inside, she has to be as well," he insists.
"This is math, not magic," Dr. Phil observes. He stresses that he doesn't have an issue with Audrey being older with a younger man, but he wants her to consider her future. "I don't want you to wind up falling in love and getting hurt because all of a sudden he's having to put you in the car," he says.
"I don't want to think about it," Audrey says. "I understand what you're saying. I just am going to beat it."
"I'm not saying that your spirit can't stay young," Dr. Phil assures her.
