It seems TV producers are set on detailing the lifestyles of wives of every sport known to man. Basketball Wives, Football Wives. What's next, bowling wives? Or maybe rugby wives....those girls could probably serve up a good beatdown! And while I'm on the subject, still no soccer wives? Soccer stills get no respect! Sorry, I'm an ex-soccer player. But I digress.
According to TMZ, the producers of Pit Boss are reportedly teaming up with VH1 to bring us Wrestling Wives. Sources tell them the pilot has already begun shooting in Houston.
Sources say Sharmell Sullivan-Huffman (Booker T's wife), Stacy Carter (Jerry Lawler's ex-wife) and Jackie Haas (Charlie Haas' wife) are the main focus of the show.
We're told the show will also be centered around WWE wrestler Booker T's wrestling school in Texas -- which Sharmell helps runs.
Besides the fact that my wrasslin' fandom has long since waned, I can pretty much guess what Wrestling Wives will contain--backstabbing, bitch fits, Dynasty-style revenge plots (why does every black reality show star think she's Dominique Devereaux? She'd probably blow all you bitches out the water! I'm just sayin'), conspicuous alcohol consumption, someone trying to launch a fashion/handbag line or music career, and an end of season get together that turns into a huge catfight where someone is called a non-motherfuckin' factor-skank-ho-slut-homewrecka-bitch-trick.
Honestly, it's not really Wrestling Wives that's the problem (I'll probably end up a hypocrite and watch an episode or two). It's just that TV, especially music channels, have become so dime a dozen. What happened to the days when MTV/VH1/BET reported on music and had scripted shows/cartoons? Ultrasound, The Year In Rock, Daria, Downtown, Clone High, Docugroove, Teen Summit, Biorhythm, Making Of The Video--remember those days? When artists, musicians and the industries around them (touring, video directors, songwriters, producers) were the main focus, and not teen moms and Jersey Shore? It's like they're not even trying to resembe a music station anymore. Reality shows have become the rule rather than the exception, and that sucks.
The only way I'll tune in is if by some miracle The Rock or John Cena make a guest appearance. Preferably shirtless and oiled up:).
