Predictable reality show is boozy, blingy, and boring.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Being partnered with a successful music celeb has lots of benefits and challenges.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The cast puts a lot of importance on wealth and keeping their husbands from straying. Most are working on their own careers.


Fights and arguments between cast members are common. 


Strong innuendo, particularly when it comes to discussing other women interested in their partners. Lots of revealing outfits and booty shaking (with partially bare bottoms visible).


"Damn," "hell"; lots of bleeped cursing. 


Endless high-end products, spas, and cars like BMW and Ferrari shown. iPhone devices visible.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Lots of drinking (wine, cocktails, etc.). 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Platinum Life is an unscripted series featuring wives and partners of successful LA musical artists. It follows the same formula of similar reality shows by featuring lots of booze and sexual innuendo and endless arguing. Enjoying a luxury lifestyle (thanks to their partners) is also a major theme. Lots of expensive brands and car makes, including BMW, Cadillac, and Ferrari, are also visible.

What's the story?

THE PLATINUM LIFE is a reality series that features the wives and girlfriends of top Los Angeles musicians living their lives in the music world. It stars Crystal Smith, who is married to Ne-Yo, La'Myia Good, who is married to R&B singer Eric Bellinger, Kid Ink's wife Asiah Azante, and Nazanin Mandi, who is engaged to Miguel. Rounding out the group are Nelly's girlfriend Shantel Jackson, and Lola Monroe, who is in a relationship with King Los. Often joining them is singer Alycia Bellamy, who is currently single. While they work at supporting their partners in and outside of the business, they also raise children, work on their respective careers, enjoy the good life, and take time to gossip and argue with each other. 

Is it any good?

Like WAGS, Baller Wives, and similar E! shows, this predictable series features women who gloat about being with and supporting their celebrity partner. They also celebrate and support one another, despite the many gossipy conflicts that distract from their friendship. 

It's voyeuristic and superficial, but fans of the artists featured here (who appear throughout the series) may be drawn to it. Nonetheless, The Platinum Life is doesn't offer anything to viewers looking for something new.
