This week the cast for the new season of Basketball Wives was released. This reality TV guilty pleasure is on its fourth season, which means they’ve got to be doing something right. But as I flipped through the new cast roster, I realized that NONE of them are even actually the wives of these NBA athletes. They’re all either ex-wives, baby mamas or ex fiances. Really, VH1? C’mon, get some actual wives to be on the show Basketball Wives. I guess at the end of the day, this all makes for better TV, which is fine by me because reality television is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. But seriously, there are women out there who are legally married to men with far superior professions.
In the spirit of this new season of Basketball Wives, I can’t help but think about these other wives who would be just as interesting — if not more so! — than those featured in the VH1 hit. Sometimes the most common of jobs can be the most fascinating. I now present you with eight shows that I think need to be filmed immediately and broadcast to millions of reality TV junkies such as myself. What do you think?
