Seventy Year-Old Mermaids – That’s Hot

WEEKI WACHEE, Florida (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hubba hubba: A bunch of sexy senior gals are shoe-horning themselves into mermaid costumes to perform aquatic ballets for admiring crowds.

It sounds fishy but the ladies are all between ages 50 to 74 years old and veterans of the Florida’s Weeki Wachee underwater theater, where mesmerizing mermaids have been entertaining folks since 1947.

Every month, some of the original sirens kick up their tails in a Former Mermaids Show – including 56-year-old Barbara Wynns, whose mermaid heyday was from 1967 to 75.

She admits she and her fellow sisters of the sea “know we have cellulite and wrinkles,” but says, “we feel 19 again when we perform!”

By popular demand, the former mermaids will crank out four shows over the Fourth of July weekend.

Wynns is thrilled to be performing again, adding, “I feel like John Glenn getting to go back into space after all those years.”
