The Real Housewives of Nashville

You know those reality TV shows where women do nothing but get drunk on cocktails and drama? Well, my gal pals and I recently had an evening full of booze and filming minus the screaming.

After being contacted by a producer to shoot a sizzle reel for a potential reality TV show, I wondered how laborious it really is to be a ‘housewife’ (insert any reality character here). Shooting footage this past weekend I found out first hand that it’s no joke.

For instance, you have to stand and smile with perfect lighting…


One Southern housewife + one crazy cat lady + one mama-to-be = good TV?

You have to sit and chit-chat endlessly…


Couch work can equate to exhaustion.

We had to document the end of each scene with a photo…


It’s hard to smile this big.

We had to get our gab on, while trying to look our most fabulous…

Serious phone calls

Serious, serious phone calls.

We were forced to sit and gossip while incorporating a big-headed Teddy Bear

Drinks anyone?

Spotlight on the mighty feline, please!

We were coerced into sitting under hot lights…

Heated discussions

Smoldering trio.

Which forced us to cool off with more libations…


Keeping it classy.

And more cocktails had to be guzzled while setting up between scenes…

Cut! and drink

The grueling process of lounging.

While one of us was hard at work…


Making the magic happen.

The other two of us were very busy bottoming up…

drink our prep away

Seriously prepping for our next take.

To ensure our behavior was within ethical standards, one husband tried to help the producer wrangle three ladies during the evening…

Mr. Husband wrangled us in

Mr. Husband and Miss America (who clearly hates this process).

Of course while we were hurrying up to wait, we had to conduct a selfie photo shoot in the hallway…


We hate cameras.

Because being interviewed on film can be compared to forms of torture (obviously), we figured out how to make it less stressful…

Very Serious

Does this martini match my outfit?

Then we had to watch playback of ourselves…

Until playback

Too bad we don’t think we’re entertaining.

As you can see, being filmed is extremely assiduous but we somehow managed to trudge our way through the evening…

Wrap party!

Blowing the testosterone out of the water.

Which led to us to celebrating the only way us Nashville housewives know how…

oh boy

Remnants of a wrap party.

This is obviously serious business.

Which why we can’t wait to do it again.
