A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series highlights some of the social and financial advantages and pitfalls of being the wife of a football player. Women's looks and material wealth is emphasized over other substantive values. Christianity, divorce, and other issues are discussed.
Positive Role Models
The women often engage in snarky arguments and competitive behavior with each other. Some of the wives view their husband's fame and finances as part of their own personal success. But the women aren't entirely defined by their partners: Several of the wives work and/or own their own businesses. Many of them have college and/or advanced degrees.
Violence & Scariness
Catty arguments between the wives are frequent. Threats to punch each other in the face during some of these disagreements. Scenes of tackles and tough football plays on the field.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series is one of many that focus on the relationships and exploits of wealthy women who are connected to famous or rich men. This show features the wives and girlfriends of professional football players, which might attract young football fans, but parents should note that the show contains some strong language ("s--t," "f--k" are bleeped), catty behavior, and some strong sexual innuendo. Drinking (wine, champagne, cocktails) and high-end brands like Louis Vuitton and Cadillac are frequently visible.
Is It Any Good?
The series showcases some of the advantages that come with living with a professional football player, like owning a million dollar homes, power shopping, and maintaining a high social status in the community. Because football players travel less than other professional athletes, their wives also have the added benefit of spending more time with their husbands at home. But the show underscores some of the very real pressures that a football player's wife faces, including worrying about a husband's ability to stay safe during a game, and coping with the serious emotional and financial consequences that result from devastating injuries and/or aging.
It's slightly milder than its sister series Basketball Wives, but still contains lots of voyeuristic moments filled with catty arguing, cursing, and strong sexual innuendo. Wealth and materialism are also major themes. Folks who like this sort of thing may find it entertaining enough to tune in. Football fans may be interested in the constant conversations about football and seeing what some of their favorite players are like when they are off the field.
