Rich & Gorgeous - TLC's "Secrets of a Trophy Wife"
Tomorrow TLC takes viewers into the elite lifestyles of extraordinarily wealthy trophy wives, and the men they strive to keep happy in the one-hour special, Secrets of a Trophy Wife.
These women are smart, driven, and supported by their husbands (or, ex-husbands) in every aspect of their lives.
From outrageous shopping sprees to buying fleets of fancy cars, the women of TLC's Secrets of a Trophy Wife live a lifestyle many aspire to, but few actually achieve. However, these women are out to prove that they are more than just pretty faces. Juggling their own businesses, families, and households can be challenging, especially when the next wannabe trophy wife is always waiting in line.
