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.
What's the story?
PRIVATE LIVES OF NASHVILLE WIVES stars six women who are looking for their place in the Nashville scene. It stars aspiring singer Sarah Davidson, the wife of songwriter Dallas Davidson; former soap star Erika Page White, who is married to singer Bryan White; Cassie Chapman, whose husband Gary Chapman is trying to revamp his stalled Christian music career; and Betty Malo, the wife of The Mavericks lead singer Paul Malo. Also joining the cast is Jenny Terrell, the head of marketing at LivingSocial, and Anna Fernandez, Betty Malo's twin sister. <span style="\"font-size:" 13px;="" line-height:="" 1.6em;\"="">From coping with the challenges that come with their husbands' music careers, to trying to figure out how to build (or rebuild) their own career paths, the women navigate the country music capital as best they can.
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.
