I didn’t expect to enjoy watching Second Wives Club, but I actually do. Sure, it’s no Real Housewives, but I like it and a major part of that is attributed to Shiva Safai. It’s a little surprising though since she’s a classy voice of reason, but she manages to entertain without being mean or wild.
In Katie Cazrola‘s world, she refuses to be Walter’s trophy wife, because she actually wants to be his sugar mama! Walter is on board with this: he’ll sit home tinkering on his piano with big dreams of making it in music, while Katie runs two successful businesses and pays the bills.
Shiva Safai may be 33 years younger than Mohamed but that doesn’t mean she’s immature. Shiva moved to L.A. at 19; her brothers soon followed, so she’s spent the ensuing years mothering them and desperately steering them out of the arms of overly-sexy hoochies. It’s a constant battle. Her brother Shayan especially has difficulty meeting a lady of appropriate means, so Shiva volunteers to fix him up with a girl who isn’t too sexy – someone more like herself: caring, maternal, gold digging, perfect.
Last night’s Second Wives Club was all about miscommunication. Like, was the boat supposed to be a yacht? Is owning a nail salon worse than being an Instagram model? Is “junky” a compliment? Does “single” on Facebook mean single in real life? Oh the quandaries to ponder!
Tania Mehra is “busy” “planning” her wedding. Sometimes. No one is sure if this wedding is an actual thing or some sort of figment of Tania’s imagination where pigs fly on wings of diamonds and dinghies sail to Cannes with P. Diddy on board. To keep up the pretense, Tania invites some of the girls to a tasting of potential wedding food. Katie Cazrola‘s appetite is lost by sitting next to Morisa Surrey‘s constant chatter. Like, can a Pisces eat fish or is that cannibalism? Is a farmed salmon still a real salmon?
Last night on Second Wives Club, Shiva Safai continued to mother this unwieldy herd better than she wrangles her own swans. And she did so all while wearing couture in Harpers Bazaar. She may not have the wedding ring, but she literally has everything else – including the love.
Shiva and Mohamed are featured on the cover of Harpers Bazaar Interiors and that’s your daily pretty. On the other side of the spectrum, Veronika Obeng‘s life is imploding before a computer screen in a badly-lit office, where she suspects her husband Dr. Michael Obeng is cheating. Last week, Veronika made her much-fruitful life seem like a perpetual conjugal bliss of reproduction and building the chin plant king of Beverly Hills’ empire, this week she paints a more tawdry picture. We went from Monet to Grant Wood’s American Gothic.
Last night was the series premiere of Second Wives Club, a show that is kind of like Housewives except the women are bonafide trophy wives who are barely old enough to drink. So far, I think the show is kinda fun.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Antonio gave some juicy tidbits about the show. He claims he flat-out told producers he wouldn’t be having sex during the five-week production. His reason being – "I don’t know where the girls are from, what kind of lifestyle they had. So it ain’t gonna happen. It’s my life. I have kids. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to catch anything.” How classy of him.
The article also reveals a girl got kicked off the show for slapping a producer. The girl's identity is however not revealed, perhaps it might have been psychoticSarah. Antonio also reveals he had no idea his ex-wife Tully would be on the show. “I haven’t seen her since I was 18; I’m 37. I had no idea that she was gonna be there,” he says.
The show wrapped up filming back in February. Antonio has said in numerous interviews that he was happy with the results of the show, but never saying whether or not he found "the one."
