‘Caribbean Wives of South Florida’ Red Carpet Premiere Set for New York City
Jon | On 03, Nov 2013
Move over Housewives on Bravo, there’s a new reality show on the block: the “Caribbean Wives of South Florida.”
The Caribbean Wives (CWSF) was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the States, raising families, balancing marriage with career/business all while trying to live the American
Dream. The wives are from Jamaica, Haiti, Grenada, the Dominican Republic and husbands from Trinidad, the D.R. Grenada and America.
Executive producer and creator Maxine Tulloch told the Miami Herald in an article published in March that she is looking for more representation than just Hispanics.
“I was perturbed by The Real Housewives of Miami,” Tulloch says. “South Florida is not just Hispanics. When you look at the demographics on people from the Caribbean, there are just as many of us.”
The Daily News asked Tulloch “With the influx of so many reality series, what makes this one different?”
Tulloch responded, “It’s different because there is nothing like it – Hollywood wants the high drama, the fight, the ridiculous conflicts, shock behaviour — we bring none of that to the production. Yes there are conflicts, but they are played out differently, the Caribbean way, with class and dignity, our culture dictates how we behave and it is shown in our production — we are different, America has never seen the Caribbean in its true form. In this production we expressed the culture as best as possible. The kaleidoscope we reflect is forever changing.”
Class and dignity sound alright, but people watch reality TV for the drama and we hope CWSF brings it.
We’ll be watching!
Tickets to the November 15th New York City red carpet premiere of “Caribbean Wives of South Florida” are $35 per person and are available online at caribbeanwives ny.eventbrite.com.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
