(Newser) – Apparently it takes a lot of women to replace Jane Fonda: In the Hollywood Reporter's latest cover story, Ted Turner reveals that he now has four girlfriends in his life, and he typically spends one week per month with each of them. The billionaire media mogul divorced Fonda, his third wife, in 2001, the Telegraph notes. A friend tells the Reporter Turner is "still in love with" Fonda, and Turner admits they talk "about once a month."

Are his four girlfriends happy with the arrangement? "Sort of," Turner says. And is Turner himself lonely? "Maybe a little," he admits. Daily Intel calls the whole profile "kind of depressing," noting that it also paints a picture of a 73-year-old Turner who goes to bed after dinner, has noticeably less energy than he used to, is going deaf, and talks about his funeral a lot. Turner also admits he "thought about" suicide "and decided against it—in the past, not recently." Mediaite, however, zeroes in on a different part of the interview: Turner is not a Tea Party fan, calling the group "mean-spirited." (Read more Ted Turner stories.)
