What we got out of this VH1 show: Lots of drama, fighting, tight dresses, high heels, long nails and great views of South Florida.
The cast is made up mostly of NFL standouts and their spouses as well as a few sideliners.
Unlike “WAGS” or “Basketball Wives,” the women are wives with rings and legal paperwork and prenups.

The cable network says the series highlights “pro athletes and their wives as they navigate love, family, business and balling in the world where relationships are complicated and the competition between neighbors is thick.”
Some wives get along; others obviously don’t. Or else there would be no plot.
Among the main players: Kijafa Vick, wife of controversial former quarterback Michael Vick and also an executive producer; Stacey Chambers, the onetime mistress-now spouse of onetime Miami Dolphin Chris Chambers; Miko Grimes, aka Mrs. Brent Grimes (remember her arrest?), now a cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Aja and ex Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder; Kelly and NFL vet Julius Jones; and Jeniva and Asante Samuel, a Fort Lauderdale native who is now focused on boxing.
There are also random cameos by Megan Clark, wife of Earl Clark, the lone basketballer who now plays for Turkey so we won’t see much of him.
Many castmembers, influencers and VIPs showed up at a watch party at YOLO in Fort Lauderdale on Monday night, including Stacey Chambers (as you can see via her Insta); Miko Grimes; pal Kavita Channe, a sports and entertainment host/producer; and Crystal Marie, a newly single mother of one whose famous baby daddy is a big name in sports (we’re digging into who this dude is).
