NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards and his wife, Trina, are getting their own reality show starting in February on the A&E cable network.
In a Facebook exchange Friday, Trina Scott Edwards tells The Associated Press she’s currently filming for “The Governor’s Wife,” which will showcase the 34-year-old wife of the octogenarian former governor.
According to A&E, the series will follow Trina Edwards as she attempts to fit into the former governor’s upscale world and busy social life while trying to get along with step-daughters almost twice her age and corral her teenage sons.
The series will include Edwin’s daughters, Anna, a 62-year-old, four-time divorcee, and Victoria, who A&E describes as “a hardened 60-year-old ex-showgirl,” along with Trina’s sons from a previous marriage, Logan, 15 and Trevor, 13.
