When it comes to successfully dating a woman more than half your age, Diggs knows all about it—just ask Stella!
Diggs has teamed up with Hulu to host a new unscripted show all about love, but with a twist. The show is taking a page out of the 1998 classic, “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.” The movie, starring Taye Diggs, Angela Bassett, Whoopi Goldberg and Regina King, follows a woman who seems to have it all going for her – a great job, a good son and money to spare, but one thing is missing – love. She eventually goes on vacation to Jamaica where she meets a man who’s much younger and they end up falling in love. It seemed to work in the movies, so why not apply that theory to the real world, right?

Let’s hop into the show’s description together: “Three single women in their 40s, all stuck in the grind of their everyday lives, will check OUT of their comfort zones and check INTO The Groove Hotel, a magical resort on the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic — where the goal is to rediscover their youth, live joyously, and hopefully find love with men HALF. THEIR. AGE. As the saying goes: You can’t fall in love with someone else until you fall in love with yourself! At the Groove Hotel, these three women will have the opportunity to do both! Whether they find the perfect fling, friendship, true love, or something in between, this is their chance to take charge and break through the double standards older women face every day. And they’re going to have a lot of fun doing it! The show is hosted by Taye Diggs, who knows a thing or two about getting into the groove.”
