Bama Belles, the new TLC series is a hit! The new reality TV series follows a group of Alabama women as they juggle their careers, home lives and relationships. Bama Belles is kind of a Real Housewives with a country spin.
Unlike the most of the women on the Real Housewives series, the ladies featured on Bama Belles are struggling with life issues that people can relate to, such as infertility, the economy and juggling careers with family life.
I love the Housewives but it’s hard to relate to the jet-setting lifestyle of some of those women. In tonight’s episode of Bama Belles, “Two Bulls in a Pen”, Dakota comes home and reunites with the girls and Jana sees a fertility doctor.
Bama Belles Guide
In case you missed last week’s premiere episode, here’s a cheat sheet so you can catch up! Bama Belles follows the five women in Dothan, Alabama, as they deal with everything from packed work schedules, to packing a lunch. They get down and dirty in the south hunting, fishing, four wheeling and tailgating at stock car races. The new TLC series airs on Sunday nights at 10pm EST. The Bama Belles cast of characters includes:
Amie Pollard — a 39 year old mother, radio personality and real estate developer who is brash and unapologetic. She is everyone’s best friend, that is, until you cross her. She and her family are completely self made.
