Gov. Edwards and 34 yr old wife, Trina, in new A&E reality show



LINK

"The Governor's Wife"

quote:

A colorful four-term Louisiana governor has landed a docu-series on A&E. The Governor’s Wife will star 85-year-old Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina, along with several of their children from previous marriages. Edwards served four times as Louisiana’s governor over the course of three decades, and also served eight years in federal prison for crimes committed while he was in office. In 2001, Edwards was convicted on bribery and extortion charges. He became pen pals with Trina during his prison stint and they married after his release last year. The show will focus on Edwin and Trina’s May-December relationship and follow Edwin’s daughters (Anna, a 62-year-old, four-time divorcée and Victoria, a 60-year-old ex-showgirl) along Trina’s sons (Logan, 15 and Trevor, 13). Some official description: “The series follows Trina as she attempts to fit into the former governor’s upscale world and busy social life while trying to get along with daughters twice her age and corral her teenage sons. Between school projects, running for president of the Homeowner’s Association, fending off skeptics who think she’s a gold digger, and thoughts of adding a baby of their own to the mix, the Edwards clan truly represent a new take on the modern family.”

As if the rest of the country needed another reason to laugh at Louisiana. Her stepdaughters are twice her age.

Convicted felons can't run for office.

Well at least a convicted felon can't vote in La. and to run for office in La. the person must be a registered voter, so....

Eta: I just looked up the law in La. and a convicted felon who has served his sentence can run for office after a 15 year waiting period has passed following the completion of his sentence.
Look all the way at the bottom under "exceptions"

As I'm sure you know, the show is almost completely scripted.

You would have been better to keep your mouth shut. Before we just thought you were retarded. Now we know you are.

The Governor’s Wife will become the latest Louisiana-set reality show. The state has been a hotbed of reality filming in recent years, led by A&E’s own ratings phenomenon Duck Dynasty. There’s also History’s Swamp People and Cajun Pawn Stars; Discovery’s Sons of Guns; Spike’s Rat Bastards; CMT’s Bayou Billionaires and My Big Redneck Vacation, among others


While I believe we do have quite an interesting group of people living here, I'm sure all of this filming is mostly due to tax breaks for the industry.

She has played him perfectly. This will end up vey good for her. Although Edwards is not nearly as rich as he used to be, she will put in her few yrs with him and his show will allow her to meet guys she would have never in her wildest dreams been able to meet. Edwin will be gone in a few years and she will just latch on to next one on the ladder. Surprised Candy didn't agree to be on the show. Guarantee you, if the show is successful, you will see Candy start making an appearance. She's not dumb either.
