The 75-year-old actor has previously admitted that “women rule” in his house. “I basically just keep my mouth shut and don’t cause waves,” Stallone said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2016, as per TODAY. “It’s all women… Even the dogs they’re female and the one male’s been neutered.” The young women in the house love having their dad around and often go to him for advice, Even dating advice! Sophia and Sistine, who co-host the Unwaxed podcast, confessed that their dad gives them dating tips. “In terms of what to say if we don’t know how to answer a guy’s text. Or if we’re trying to break up with a guy he’ll give us really good advice… on how to cut them off,” Sistine shared with Hollywood Life. “There are guys that have been broken up with via my dad, and they have no idea.” But that doesn't mean the rest of the family also doesn't pitch in. Sistine added that her mom and younger sister Scarlet also have a say in the matter. “When you date one of us, you date the entire family,” she explained. “So if you don’t have all of our approval you just cannot come into the home. But if you pass the test of our entire family and get all four yeses across-the-board, then you must be a stand-up guy.”
