Group Of PGA Tour Wives Hire PR Firm To Help In Search Of Reality TV Show

Wives of PGA Tour players pose in promo photo to create buzz for show
A group of PGA Tour pro wives have hired L.A.-based marketing firm Reverb Collective "to help them land ... a reality show based on their lives," according to Alan Bastable of GOLF.com. Leot Chen (fiancée of Vaughn Taylor), Liz Estes (wife of Bob Estes), Alli MacKenzie (wife of Will MacKenzie), Melissa Weber Jones (wife of Matt Jones) and Erin Walker (wife of Jimmy Walker) are eyeing the show, and in its "first major play to generate some buzz, Reverb has released some edgy photos of the girls." MacKenzie said, "We were so careful not to do anything that would be offensive to anybody." Estes hopes the PR push "will work and that the show will find a home given that production companies have shown interest in her and the other wives in the past." Estes: "We were approached by the guys who did Pawn Stars. We talked to them three times, but they never called us back. And then this guy from VH1 asked me to put a show together with the other girls, and I'm like, 'Well, I'm not putting it together.'" Reverb CEO Amir Amiri said that if the show proceeds, it "would be golf's answer to Bravo's popular Real Housewives series, 'but with a cool twist.'" Bastable reported Amiri "believes the time is ripe for a program about Tour wives given the swell of attention the Tiger Woods scandal brought to the personal lives of pro golfers" (GOLF.com, 3/2).
