A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
At least in the beginning, the show devotes more screen time to conflicts between the women than it does to spotlighting their careers or independence.
Positive Role Models
Some women are better role models than others, with nontraditional jobs like "stock contractor" and "barrel rider." That said, one woman's profession is listed as "party girl," and the foursome often goes out for social drinking that includes chugging beer and slinging shots.
Violence & Scariness
Mostly squabbling, but with some light slapping.

Products & Purchases
Some visible brands, including Shiner Bock beer. One of the women is actively promoting her music career.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Social drinking is usually to "get drunk" and includes shots, beer guzzling, etc.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's some bleeped swearing (mostly "s--t") and audible words like "damn" and "hell," plus regular social drinking to "get drunk." There's also some reality-show squabbling and, in at least one episode, a physical fight that involves slapping. Product placement is minimal, but one of the women appears to be using the show to advance her music career.
Is It Any Good?
The creators of Texas Women could have blazed a brand-new trail by spotlighting strong Southern women with unconventional careers -- well, "unconventional," at least, to most city slickers.
Instead, it drags out the overdone drama of extreme personalities and booze-fueled catfights, revealing these women to be no different than any of the Real Housewives we know and tolerate.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
