A and E to Debut the Governor’s Wife October 27!!

I’m very excited that the A&E network is finally going to start showing another Louisiana reality show, this one featuring our former Governor, Edwin Edwards! Several times the show was on the schedule only for A&E to take it off again and again.

They’ve already introduced America to Louisiana’s Duck Dynasty. Now the A&E cable channel is featuring the fairy tale of the Alexandria, Louisiana woman who married the prince of Louisiana politics. After serving four terms as Governor, Edwin was convicted of bribery and extortion charges and spent 8.5 years in the slammer. He met Trina Scott as pen pals in jail. He went into prison when he was he was in his 70s, he’s 86 now. His new son Eli was produced via invitro fertilization.
