Expect some "explosive" moments and an inside look at what it's like to be a country star's better half on the new TNT series

It's a big night for six of Music City's most interesting women – as TNT debuts the new series "Private Lives Of Nashville Wives" at 10 p.m. EST, following the season premiere of "Dallas." Though the new show has been compared somewhat to its' legendary lead-in, its' cast members say the show is very reality-based. 

"The show is based around a strong and opinionated group of women who each have their own individual stories that I feel that people will really identity with," says Sarah Davidson, wife of successful songwriter Dallas Davidson. "Each storyline is a little bit deeper than your normal 'Housewives' show. It's a glimpse of what it's like to be in the business behind the curtain."

That life isn't always as glamorous as one might think, states Betty Malo – wife of Mavericks lead singer Raul Malo. "I did the show because everybody thinks that life like this is fun and games. It is the total opposite," she admits. "It's hard work. People need to see that it's not such a glamorous world. It's almost like being a single mom with him always on the road."

Those Atlanta housewives better watch their weaves, because a new group of women are looking to take over the South, one country-music-filled dream at a time.

TNT has unveiled the cast for its new show Private Lives of Nashville Wives, but from the looks of this exclusive sneak peek, it doesn’t look like these ladies have much to hide.


My eye is on Jenny, a Midwest girl. She really doesn’t like skinny bitches who never eat and think they’re fat. And the best part is she will say that to said skinny bitches’ faces (and make out with their husband). The other women, including Cuban American identical twin sisters, a former soap star and a Hooters girl who married a man 23 years her senior, don’t seem to like her very much (it’s probably because she’s not a blonde — instant housewife-outcast status).
