Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This predictable series presents all the expected arguing, innuendo, cursing, and drinking sports wives-themed reality shows are known for. Their husbands, most of whom make regular appearances on the show, seem more mature and level-headed than their partners. Meanwhile, the women seem determined to make themselves appear as stereotypically fussy and unstable as possible.

There's no real sense of sisterhood or empowerment in Baller Wives. However, there are a few interesting conversations, particularly those about the life-threatening injuries football players sustain in their careers. However, these get lost in the drama.
