If you were no talent model would you take a load from old gross guy for millions?
Obviously that's what Beth did and that's why she can't stop smiling. That's the smile of con who's con hit the mark. Would you suck and fuk some old guy for entree into the Hamptons life? Sadly I would not r could not.
No! I personally could not. Beth is 19 years younger than Howard she can never be his equal no matter what she does (and prancing around in a bikini in the snow doesn't help her position in the respect and equality department).
I have dated men with some bucks (luckily that were my age). But they still have to be attractive in both looks and personality to me. Beth saw celebrity and dollar signs in Howard. Howard saw a young tall blond who would fawn over him. I am not sure that is the definition of love. It seems more the definition of a mutually beneficial relationship. Two people just using each other. That's just not for me.
