Sean Stewart, who is currently dating Adrienne Maloof, told TMZ that he was very happy with her and that she is a "very, very, very good lady."
Stewart, 32, has received criticism for dating Maloof, 51, because of their age difference.
Of the age difference, he said, "If men can date younger women, why can't an older woman date a younger man? It's sexist."
He also said, "It's about the person she is inside, age is just a number. If there's a connection and someone cares about a person, that's what matters really."
Stewart also denied rumors that he moved in with Maloof. "It's not true… I actually have my own place," he said.
