A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Themes include female cast members struggling to get out of their husbands' career shadows in some way, adoption, and other mature issues. Some catty behavior and skimpy bikinis reinforce negative stereotypes about women and wives.
Positive Role Models
The marriages featured here appear strong and positive. Some cast members have highly conservative views about the roles of men and women. Some cast members engage in bad-mouthing others, and there's definitely a focus on looks.
Violence & Scariness
Weapons such as guns and bows and arrows are used during recreational target practice, sometimes near small children. The twins constantly argue and threaten to beat each other up, but nothing ever happens.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Private Lives of Nashville Wives is tamer than other wife-centered reality shows, but it's really not meant for kids. The women engage in some catty behavior, and there's the occasional bleeped curse word and lots of skimpy bikinis. Social drinking is frequent, and themes include marital relationships, adoption, and other mature issues.
Is It Any Good?
From a woman working hard to be a country singer to another trying to figure out what to do with herself when her kids get older, Private Lives of Nashville Wives highlights some of the struggles these women face thanks to their spouses' prominent music careers. It also highlights some of the traditional challenges women face when trying to balance their personal lives with their desires to start their own careers.
Although it offers a more polite cast than similar reality shows, it still offers a fair share of catty arguing. But the show's real draw is its Nashville backdrop and the prominent musicians and industry players that these women are related to. As a result, one can't help but wonder if the show is as much a promotional vehicle for their husbands as it is for them.
