I guess VH1’s “Basketball Wives” just wasn’t enough. The new VH1 series “Football Wives” just got an airdate. And we’ve got the first pics of the cast members.

Football season kicked off a couple weeks ago. And now, the “Football Wives” are hitting VH1 Sunday, October 24 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. For those of you who care who’s on it, we’ve got the first flicks of the Dallas, TX ladies who are responsible for supporting their baller men and their wallets off the field.

The ladies hit a recent gala together. From left to right in above pic: Chanita Foster (married to George Foster, tackle, UFL); Brittany Pigrenet (girlfriend of David Buehler, kicker, Dallas Cowboys); Dawn Neufeld (married to Ryan Neufeld, tight end, UFL); Melani Ismail (married to Rocket Ismail, receiver, retired); Erin McBriar (married to Mat McBriar, punter, Dallas Cowboys).

The other 3 cast members Pilar Sanders (married to Deion Sanders, all-pro cornerback, retired), Amanda Davis (married to Leonard Davis, guard, Dallas Cowboys), and Mercedes Nelson (ex-girlfriend of “a star Cowboys player”) weren’t pictured.

Chanita Foster’s recently launched her clothing line “Rock Star Rascals” and claims she brings money into the household instead of just spending it. I guess this Chanita didn’t ask “ATL Housewives” Sheree Whitfield or Lisa Wu-Hartwell how that worked out for them. Anywho, here’s a few pics from her the launch:

A snippet about the show:

Set in the cradle of American football, Dallas, this series goes inside the real-life locker room of the spouses of some of the biggest footballers in the game. Many of these ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry, and travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour and is frequently fleeting. Football players are often injured so their partners are forced to not only play wife, but also be a mother or nurse to their man. The careers of these modern-day gladiators span only a few years on average and their life-expectancy is alarmingly low. There is often a fine line between the stars who collect big contracts and the journeymen who fight to stay in the league, sometimes struggling to pay their bills. And unlike basketball players, football stars travel less for games and are more often home with their families. What price will they pay for enduring the equivalent of multiple head-on collisions on any given Sunday?
