What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the reality series WAGS Miami features the female partners of professional athletes navigating Miami culture. There's lots of arguing, sexual innuendo, partially naked backsides, strong language ("piss," "bitch") and bleeped curses. The stars do a lot of drinking as well. Various Miami locales and sports team logos are visible, but logos for brands like Chevrolet are blurred. Adultery and parenting are often discussed, and sports doping is referenced.

What's the story?

WAGS MIAMI, a spinoff of the unscripted series WAGS, features the fiancés and girlfriends of professional sports players who live in the Miami, Florida area. It stars Claudia Sempedro, girlfriend of Green Bay Packers' Julius Peppers, Vanessa Cole, who is with Mike Wallace of the Baltimore Ravens, Ashley Nicole Roberts, the girlfriend of Atlanta Falcons linebacker Philip Wheeler, and Darnell Nicole, the fiancé of Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones. Also joining the group are some single women, including Astrid Bavaresco, Hencha Voigt, and Metisha Schaefer, the ex-girlfriend of Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Larry English. From disagreeing with their partners about how skimpy their bathing suits should be, to competing for the attention of single ball players, the women highlight the highs and lows of sharing their lives with high-profile athletes. 

Is it any good?

This predictable show stays true to its sister series by starring women who define themselves by their roles as life partners of professional athletes, and work hard to maintain those relationships. Like their Los Angeles counterparts, they too enjoy the perks that come with the lifestyle. But in the WAGS Miami community, it's about honoring the unspoken rules or "girl codes" when they interact with each other rather than respecting social hierarchy.

The athletes' girlfriends talk about their commitment to, and struggles with, their relationships, especially when it comes to concerns about adultery and parenthood. Meanwhile, the single women talk about their desire to find committed relationships with other athletes, Some of these conversations seem to reinforce traditional stereotypes about women, and their need for wealthy men to be happy. There's nothing very original here, but some may find the tabloid nature of the series entertaining. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the reasons people choose to appear in unscripted shows like the WAGS franchise. Is it for attention? To shed light on issues surrounding the athletic community? Or is it really just for entertainment? Do these kinds of shows highlight what life is in athletic communities, or are they simply playing into stereotypes

  • Would you like to have a reality show about your own life? Why or why not?
