Looks like VH1 is looking to expand its popular “wives franchise with “Baseball Wives’. Now, VH1 has tried this before with “Football Wives” and the show completely tanked. The only successful spin-off has been “Basketball Wives” and I believe that’s due to the drama & the popularity of the actual cast members like Evelyn Lozada. Let’s see how this works out…
These divas of the diamond make their pitch to be the next home run smash as they prepare for their rookie season this November on VH1. The cast of VH1′s Baseball Wives includes: Anna Benson (wife of Arizona pitcher Kris Benson), Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago’s Mark Grace), Chantel Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City’s Jason Kendall) and Brooke Villone (wife of big-league veteran Ron Villone). The inner circle of baseball wives proves to be challenging as the women cope with marriage, gossip and fame. With the baseball season being the longest in professional sports, the women count on their friends to be their emotional support while their husbands are on the road but sometimes a friend can be your worst enemy. Rumors swirl and friendships are tested among the professional athletes’ wives as they are forced to make emotional decisions, proving that their lives are often just like everyone else’s. This captivating group makes for an adrenaline-charged rush of excitement as they showcase their style, humor and fastball drama. Get ready, because the bases are loaded for this sure-hit new series. Baseball Wives premieres Wednesday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
