Louisiana is the reality show capital of the world.
That means there are larger-than-life characters in and about the bayou. Call 'em crazy. Also call 'em rich.
The latest, and the ninth reality show based in Louisiana, is "The Governor's Wife," based on the exploits of disgraced 85-year-old former Gov. Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina — who was a pen pal while he was in prison for bribery and extortion. They were married upon his release.
The premise of the show concerns the adjustment to the May-December romance and the merger of Edwards' children, ages 62 and 64, and Trina's, ages 13 and 15.
Other reality shows that originate in Louisiana: "Billy The Exterminator," "Duck Dynasty," "My Redneck Vacation," "Bayou Billionaires," "Cajun Pawn Stars," "Sons of Guns," "Swamp People," and "Ragin Cajuns."
Can one involving LSU football coach Les Miles be far behind?
