Network reality show that chronicled the lives of six women who were married to older, successful, previously divorced men.
After the hit reality TV show, Veronika Obeng had to literally restart her life following the divorce from her plastic surgeon husband. The TV personality runs a podcast and a blog. On her SAC podcast which she co-hosts with two other girlfriends, Melissa Ford and Laura Govan, the three women who come from different walks of life, share different perspectives on various pressing issues one can think of.

Thereafter, her husband Michael Obeng filed a lawsuit against E! in order to prevent the cable network from airing or promoting one of Second Wives Club‘s episodes.
