Lifetime Releases Details On ‘Army Wives’ Spinoff Show: ‘Army Husbands’ Ron November 9, 2012 Army 21 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: HOLLYWOOD, CA - The Lifetime network has released more details on Army Husbands, a spinoff of the hit show Army Wives that will debut this fall. “We’ve historically done a good job appealing to women, but we’re hoping this new series will get men to tune in as well,” said Rob Sharenow, Lifetime’s Executive Vice President of Programming. Like its predecessor, Army Husbands will be set at Ft. Marshall, a fictional Army post in North Charleston, SC. The show will follow the lives of four civilian men married to military servicemembers. Reggie, a 19-year-old commissary employee, abandoned his dreams of playing college basketball to move across the country with his new wife, a Private First Class. Reggie’s inability to ever remember to log out of his Gmail account puts his marriage at risk. Kyle, a 22-year-old commissary employee, juggles the demands of marriage and trying to make it big with his shitty garage band. In the pilot episode, Kyle forgets to clear his Internet history, putting his marriage at risk. Tom, a 21-year-old commissary employee, is married to a female Infantryperson. Bored at home, he spends all her money on muscle cars and Tapout T-shirts. Whenever his wife is sent downrange, Tom puts his marriage at risk by going to bars and sleeping with wives of deployed soldiers. And finally Jared, a 32-year-old commissary employee and stay-at-home dad, feels unappreciated as he raises his preschool-age twins during the day and works stocking shelves at night. Jared’s marriage is put to the test when his wife wakes up and catches him on the other side of the bed having sex with another woman. Military husbands are excited about the new show. “You know, I was concerned that the show would portray us as being somehow, oh I don’t know, less-than-manly eunuch types with wives in the military,” said Kevin Hardeman, a longtime military husband from Ft. Bragg who works in the deli department. “Fortunately, the show stayed away from negative stereotypes.” Army Husbands airs Sunday nights in the 9:00 PM time slot, between Midwestern Woman with a Dark Secret and Vagina Central.

Sauers says: April 16, 2014 at 1:09 AM OK, sorry, this is totally unrealistic. 4 Family member husbands with jobs, not impossible, but most unlikely.

Dustin Ryan Mascorro says: April 16, 2014 at 1:09 AM There is actually a Kevin that works in the deli department at Bragg….could this be the infamous true article? Buck Clay says: April 16, 2014 at 1:09 AM Clay, a stay-at-home dad and exotic dancer balances his marriage to Porche’ a high-speed supply specialist whom is known for her expertise in the DoD stock of mattresses. Often Clay is seen increasing the credit-limit on their AAFES “Star” credit-card for groceries or at the unit S-1 office ensuring all of his ex-wives allotments of alimony are current. He often smokes and drinks from a flask while in the building boisterously screaming throughout the battalion area “Oh hell no, ain’t none-of-now-nevers in here know what its like being an army huband, ‘the toughest job in the army’ and ain’t no ranks be higher than civilian, that’s right y’all best be listening to me.” Clay asserts himself as the post Family Readiness Group (FRG) leader at FT. Bragg and doesn’t let his current wife’s low rank hold him back. At a recent wine & cheese mixer he reminded a gathering of wives of the General Staff “Ya’ll bitches best not get cut in here or Condi is going to get another call and let’s see how your husband likes command in Alaska.” When Clay was later approached by a Star & Stripes reported about his fall from D.C. grace he sarcastically replied “My wife is named Porche’ and the kid is mine, think about it.” Clay is currently pursuing a law degree from the University of Phoenix online and hopes to mitigate he latest and future divorces with additional aspirations to renegotiate his contact Lifetime reality TV contract from co-star to mulit-season star. Stephen Yoda says: April 16, 2014 at 1:09 AM heh. id watch the fuck out of this show. leftoftheboom says: November 9, 2012 at 8:24 PM It works for Generals too! But you need to make one of them gay but unwilling to talk about it. Or they are both gay and just got “married” for the BAH. these things I say says: November 9, 2012 at 9:10 PM @leftoftheboom Could you possibly mean General Gay Best Friend? leftoftheboom says: November 9, 2012 at 9:31 PM @these things I say @leftoftheboom That works too. these things I say says: November 9, 2012 at 7:35 PM I think Lifetime would go for this. It’s still about women. I mean, when not working at the commissary, they more or less have wives and there’s the other women they’re boning.
