Proposed Reality Show NASCAR Wives has been Shelved * Kudos to NASCAR!!!

I would have watched it.....NASCAR and TLC (Jon & Kate Plus 8 and American Choppers) have gone their separate ways after discussions on a NASCAR docu-drama * NASCAR Wives * did not go well.

NASCAR has it's own media company that is tasked with producing NASCAR related movies and media presentations.  How do you think all those voices got in CARS?!

The show was slated to have DeLana (I wear the fire suit in this family) Harvick, Kelly Earnhardt, Angie Skinner, Shana Mayfield.  IMHO opinion * the first 3 are AWESOME * DeLana's FATHER was in racing and she co-owns truck and Nationwide teams with her husband.  Kelly is the SISTER of Dale Jr and the power-behind-his-throne AND her husband works for a Hendricks racing team (he is responsible for getting JR in Kyle's #5 car a few years ago after the team got it back on the track and Kyle was already on the plane).

 

"We just had to go our separate ways,"  said Jay Abraham, NASCAR Media Group's COO. "We were never able to agree on the creative approach for the project. We simply were not going to do anything to undermine the credibility and the relationships we have with our drivers. We were being asked to do things more in line with traditional reality programming and it wasn't true to the nature and personality of our sport and the women involved."


I suspect that Shana Mayfield was the sticker for NASCAR as her husband has sued NASCAR after his license was pulled for drugs and then there were some messy step-mother allegations and more lawsuits.  It may have been OK that when her husband Jeremy wanted out of his contract with Ray Evernham's team; however, the drug violation, counter-suit v NASCAR and bringing in Brian France's divorce location into the mix was over the line.
