Boone Pickens Basically A Porn Star: 5th Wife

Investor T. Boone Pickens is 85 year-old, an age at which most people have long since stopped working and are generally taking it easy. That he is still pounding the pavement and “logging 500 hours a year jetting around the country to give speeches and interviews about the miracle of the American oil-and-gas boom” makes him something of an anomaly, and his longevity is the focus of a profile over at Forbes. What do we learn? That TBP keeps his eyesight sharp with monthly experimental injections “into the centre of his eyeball” and daily gym routine “A mile on the treadmill. Fifty sit-ups. Two sets of 20 squats while wearing a 60-pound weight vest. A couple of sets of 150-pound pull-downs.” In addition to keeping him alive and moving, the exercise apparently had the added benefit of keeping his latest bride happy:

Aboard his Gulfstream G550, T Boone Pickens—legendary trader, corporate raider, energy visionary and billion-dollar philanthropist—slides off his shoes and reaches down to grab his feet. He’s got a surprise in store. Pulling his legs up onto the thick leather seat, he tucks himself into lotus position, as if getting ready to meditate. It’s proof that he’s still got it: Physical strength, stamina, ability. A future. “He’s the most flexible man I’ve ever known,” Pickens’s wife, Toni Brinker, says with a wry smile. The two were married on Valentine’s Day in the chapel next to the opulent lodge on his 68,000-acre ranch northeast of Amarillo in the Texas panhandle. It’s the fifth marriage for Pickens and the fourth for Brinker, who is 20 years his junior.
