Patricia Heaton Fires Back After Don Lemon Says Women Over 50 Aren’t In Their ‘Prime’

The former “Everybody Loves Raymond” star Patricia Heaton is firing back after Don Lemon said that women over 50 aren’t in their “prime.”

The Hollywood star Patricia Heaton is firing back at the CNN host Don Lemon after he said that women in their 50s are past their “prime.”

Heaton Hits Back At Lemon
Fox News reported that during an episode of “CNN This Morning” that aired last week, Lemon, 56, said that the 51 year-old Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley was past her “prime” because “a woman is considered to be in their prime in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s.”

Heaton, 64, fired back in a lengthy Twitter thread letting Lemon know that even though she’s over 60, she’s still accomplishing quite a lot.

“Hey Ladies – @donlemon thinks women over 50 are past their prime! Let’s start #primetime and list some of the things we’ve accomplished in these glorious later years,” Heaton began. “I’ll start: – Produced the comedy feature Unexpected (available on iTunes/AmazonPrime) #primetime.”


“Wrote and published the book Your Second Act: Inspiring Stories of Reinvention (Simon and Schuster) #primetime,” the “Everybody Loves Raymond” actress continued. “Created the Emmy-winning show PatriciaHeaton Parties for@FoodNetwork #primetime.”

“Published the cookbook Food For Family and Friends (William Morrow Cookbooks) #primetime,” Heaton wrote. “Produced and starred in the sitcom Carol’s Second Act for CBS. #primetime.”

Heaton Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Heaton proceeded to double down by listing even more accomplishments of hers.


“Founded@WorldVision Celebrity Ambassador program raising funds and awareness, while making trips to Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Jordan and Kenya. #primetime,” she tweeted. “Read the Bible all the way through! #primetime. Created Patricia Heaton Home table top line, now available at @ParkDesigns #primetime.”

“Starred in the @ABCNetwork hit show @TheMiddle_TV #primetime,” Heaton added. “Took four sons on four college tours and saw them graduate. #primetime. Starred with Tony Shalhoub, the late great Chris Welch and @TheRealAnnaCamp in The Scene by @TheresaRebeck at @2STNYC. Produced and starred in Mom’s Night Out @MNOmovie with @sarahdrew for @AFFIRMFilms #primetime.”

Lemon’s Comments
This came after Lemon slammed Haley for saying that politicians who are over the age of 75 should undergo annual mental competency tests. This made Lemon “uncomfortable” because Haley “isn’t in her prime, sorry.”

“A woman is considered to be in their prime in 20s and 30s and maybe 40s,” he said, telling his female co-hosts to “Google it” when they challenged him.


“I’m just saying what the facts are. Google it. Everybody at home, when is a woman in her prime, it says 20s, 30s and 40s,” he continued. “And I’m just saying Nikki Haley should be careful about saying that politicians are not in their prime, and they need to be in their prime when they serve. Because she wouldn’t be in her prime according to Google or whatever it is.”

Lemon responded by saying, “To be clear, I am NOT calling for competency tests for sexist middle-aged CNN anchors; only for people who make our laws and are 75+.”

Heaton has long been one of the only openly conservative Christian actresses in Hollywood, and she’s never afraid to tell it like it is.

What Lemon said about women is unforgivable, and there aren’t enough stars in Hollywood speaking out against his comments. God bless Heaton for letting Lemon know that age is just a number, and that women are still in their “prime” regardless of how old they are!
