Synopses & Reviews
The bling is brighter, the drama is amped up, and the delicious beauties from Tu-Shonda L. Whitaker’s Millionaire Wives Club are back for a second season of backstabbing, divorce parties, and family sagas. Lights, camera, action!
Milan, Jaise, and Chaunci are the gorgeous, high-rolling divas starring in the hit reality show Millionaire Wives Club. As they struggle with love, lies, lust, and the pressures of sudden fame, their friendships turn into catfights that keep the cameras following all their malicious moves.
Milan is finally engaged to Kendu, the man of her dreams, and though things look perfect on the outside, distrust and jealousy are crumbling their romance. Jaise has found the love she so desperately craves, but her son, Jabril, remains the No. 1 man in her life—for better or for worse. And Chaunci, the independent, single mom who doesn’t feel she needs a man, is contemplating taking the plunge into a deep love affair—but will the man she chooses have room in his life for her? Add to this crafty cast Vera, a venomous new vixen who plays the game better than any of them, and you’ve got a season even more scintillating than the last.
"Milan, Jaise, and Chaunci return for another season of raunchy reality TV antics in Whitaker's sequel to Millionaire Wives Club. Milan and Kendu are engaged, but he's having difficulty adjusting to retirement from the NFL and she's in the sights of another player, Samir. Jaise's 19-year-old son Jabril, the irresponsible father of two children by different mothers, is putting a strain on Jaise's marriage to Bilal, whose attempts at discipline almost destroy the marriage. Chaunci discovers that Idris has married another woman, sidelining her ability to trust until she meets sexy Emory. And stuck-up new cast member Vera soon discovers that her perfect marriage has flaws of its own. All storylines come to a head with predictably explosive catfights and scandal as trashy and vacuous as the reality television Whitaker portrays, stocked with shallow caricature provocateurs and not a single likeable persona on the page. Readers unfamiliar with the series will be utterly lost, and those seeking a quick dip into cheap melodrama, sex, money, and brawling women will have to look elsewhere for substance."
