CNN Founder Ted Turner 'Spends One Week Each Month With A Different Girlfriend' Ted Turner, the 73-year-old billionaire founder of CNN, has revealed that he has four girlfriends each of whom he spends one week with a month.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter the media mogul and philanthropist, who owns 28 homes including 14 ranches, said a week per month for each girlfriend was "pretty much the general rule." By Nick Allen 29 Feb 2012
Turner and his third wife Jane Fonda divorced in 2001, after 10 years of marriage, and the Oscar-winning actress has been replaced in his personal life by a complicated arrangement involving a quartet of other women. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter the media mogul and philanthropist, who owns 28 homes including 14 ranches, said a week per month for each girlfriend was "pretty much the general rule." He only named one of the women, the novelist Elizabeth Dewberry, who was with him at the time in New York. Until five years ago Miss Dewberry was married to the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Olen Butler.
When they separated Butler wrote an email to friends, which was leaked to the media, in which he said: "She will not be Ted's only girlfriend.
Ted is permanently and avowedly non-monogamous. But though he has several girlfriends, it is a very small number, and he does not take them up lightly."
Asked if the other three unnamed women in his life were happy to share him, Turner replied: "Sort of." He still speaks to Fonda about once a month and, according to one friend, is "still in love with her."

Reminds me if the old joke. My wife and I have an agreement. She can go out with the girls whenever she wants and so can I.
I call BS. It’s hard enough imagining that one woman would want to go steady with the Mouth, let alone four.
-——What they mean is that he has four whores on call-——
I suppose you could phrase it that way, if truth is important to you.
1%'er = where are the protesters?
You couldn't get me to ‘date’ Ted Turner if he gave me all his homes and ranches. I like being around somewhat sane people.
Lest anyone be jealous of Mr. Turner's tacit polygamy, one can only assume that the other three "girl friends" are at least as messed up as the train-wreck he chose to mention by name. From a statement by her former husband:
I was able to help her a great deal. She says I saved her life. But de facto therapy as the initial foundation of a marriage eventually sucks the life out of a relationship. And it is very common for a woman to be drawn to men who remind them of their childhood abusers. Ted is such a man
Ted has always looked diseased to me.
