Private Lives of Nashville Wives is struggling to show the ritzy exclusive lives of the wives of country music royalty while maintaining its humility. Cassie Chapman, the spitfire former Hooters waitress who is married to Christian singer Gary Chapman, opened up about adoption, her history, and what makes Nashville Wives a different kind of reality show.
Cassie is 23-years-younger than Gary, but says the couple is deeply in love. "I got on my computer and Googled his name, all of a sudden I said 'Dear God, what am I gonna tell my dad, He's 23 years older than me,'" Cassie says of meeting Gary, previously married to fellow-Christian superstar Amy Grant.
The couple never planned to get married, but fate intervened. "His father was dying of Parkinson's and neither one of us were going to get married or have kids," Cassie shared with Masslive.com. "He rolled over one morning and said, 'How would you feel if my father blessed our union?'" The couple got hitched at the courthouse. Gary's father passed shortly after and that was his last act as a preacher.
Last night was the second episode of Private Lives of Nashville Wives. The ladies continued to get to know each other and already the bitchy claws are coming out – southern girl style for some and full-fledged Real Housewife in training for others!
Cassie Chapman and her husband Gary have had their share of struggles – most notably their inability to have a child. The couple finally decided to adopt their daughter Eva Rose. Unfortunately birth mom Chelsea has ten days to change her mind and seems to be wavering. Cassie is on pins and needles, but Gary trusts faith and believes, "The more you anticipate the good, the better it will be."
To take her mind off the stressful situation Cassie decides to visit Erika Page White. Erika is a control freak and a micro-manager who invites Cassie over to tour their immaculate to the point of boring home. It is literally like one of those extended stay hotels except 4x the size. Everything is beige and bland. Even the master bedroom features rent-a-center style dullsville furniture and no personal touches. Erika describes "perfect" as a closet that is completely empty and "echos". Her hallway closet has one thing in it: a Dyson – and definitely NOT the purple Dyson Pet, the classic yellow for impeccably clean people.
Last night was the premiere of Private Lives of Nashville Wives and so far I'm loving it! The ladies and the friendships seem genuine and fun, the husbands are adorable, and the interactions seem authentic. The houses are fabulous but not ridiculous and the relationships seem authentic.
It's CMA Festival week in Nashville which means the town is bumping with parties, events, music festivals. and entertainment.
Jenny Terrell is my favorite wife so far. She is married to JT, who runs a party-supply company that everyone in Nashville uses, and she herself is a national sales director for Living Social. They have a son named Hank and JT is basically a stay-at-home dad as his business runs itself. "I should write a book," he jokes about balancing business, family, and love. "You should," Jenny agrees and the wheels start spinning. Their house looks like a tree house, BTW.
They take Hank to the park and Jenny is wearing like a schoolgirl outfit with white tennis shoes and socks. Oooohhh… girl. No. I also don't think she owns a brush but maybe it's because she's too busy having fun to care. Isn't there a Living Social deal for hairbrushes or anti-frizz treatments or something?
