When I heard there was going to be a show called Private Lives of Nashville Wives , I immediately pictured a show like Nashville — but real. So instead of fictional characters like Rayna, Juliette, Scarlett and Peggy, it would be a cast of the wives of the country singers we all know and love.
Some of the possibilities might be Trace Adkins’ wife Rhonda, Tim McGraw’s wife Faith, Luke Bryan’s wife Caroline, Keith Urban’s wife Nicole, Thomas Rhett ’s wife Lauren, Justin Moore’s wife Kate, Dierks Bentley’s wife Cassidy and Brad Paisley’s wife Kimberly (who actually portrays Peggy on Nashville, by the way). I mean, who wouldn’t tune in to see those women sitting around drinking wine and bitching about their husbands?
But that would be too good (or bad, depending on how you look at it) to be true. This new TNT series, set to premiere in February, looks more like a Real Housewives kind of show, complete with wine, backstabbing, fighting, drama and size two dresses.
The cast of Private Lives of Nashville Wives includes:
Cassie Piersol-Chapman, wife of Christian music artist and former TNN: The Nashville network host Gary Chapman
Ana Fernandez, Betty Malo’s identical twin sister
Erika Page White, wife of country singer Bryan White (who had four No. 1 country singles during the ’90s)
Jenny Terrell, wife of JT Terrell, an event and party producer
Tina Brady, wife of Nashville dentist Stan Brady
