Do We Really Need A Baseball Wives Reality Show?
This wives thing has truly gotten out of control.
With the commercial failure of Football Wives and the cringe-worthy success of Basketball Wives comes Baseball Wives. Yes, another reality show that will showcase the dysfunctional lives of the MLB’s wives (or, as usual, ex-wives). Starring Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago first baseman Mark Grace), Brooke Villone (wife of big-league veteran Ron Villone), Anna Benson (wife of Arizona pitcher Kris Benson), Chantell Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City’s Jason Kendall) and Jordana Lenz, Baseball Wives has a 50/50 chance of being a commercial success depending on just how loony these chicks are — or appear to be on camera.
In the 3-minute trailer, we see chicks with assault rifles, luxury cars, and hearts full of bitterness and loneliness. This easily spells a recipe for disaster, or in this case, television gold.
But seriously, do we need another one of these shows? Haven’t the Wives series done enough damage to the image of women who are in relationships with athletes? God forbid that there are some wives out there that don’t act up in fits of ridiculousness when the cameras turn on. It really gives more of a bad name to wives and less of an inside look on how these women live.
Oh well, until another show falls flat on its face, we can only expect more wives shows to keep coming.
