Southern Belles: Louisville is arguably the best reality show you are not watching. It is a new reality show on Soapnet featuring 5 young women in their 20s and 30s as they go through their lives. It has been described by some as a reality show version of Sex and The City.
I started watching this show by chance a few weeks back and I must say I AM HOOKED! It reminds me a lot of the Real Housewives series, with younger women ofcourse. Imagine the lives of the Bravo housewives 10 – 20 years ago, and you pretty much have this show.
It airs Thursday nights at 10/9c on Soapnet. Below is more information about each cast member –
