'Bama Belles, ValSecrets.com And A Cute Malti-Poo Have Something In Common'

Nov 19, 2010 | RockSoup Productions

'Bama Belles, ValSecrets.com And A Cute Malti-Poo Have Something In Common'

Bama Belles Premiers Dec 5th at 10PM EST on TLC

New York, NY 'For Immediate Release'
The woman behind VALSECRETS.com the social networking site, that inspires, encourages and empowers females across the globe ; has added another accomplishment to her growing resume. Valeria Tignini and her charming pooch, the famous BEBE will be starring in the new, soon to be hit show BAMA BELLES. The show deals with four ladies and BEBE that live, work and play in the small southern town of Dothan, Alabama. Sounds simple right?! Not when you place a Brooklyn born and bred Italian American girl and her little dog in the mix. Let's get ready for a good time!

Nancy Daniels TLC's Senior production and development VP tells Variety 'TLC is taking a real look at the Southern lifestyle of these women in a relatable and fun way,' .

These women bring a raw view of what life is like in the deep south. They love their hunting, fishing, four wheeling and tailgating at stock car races. Let's also not forget to mention an event most people aren't accustomed to - Lawn Mower Racing. As our dear Val simply states 'people in New York actually mow their lawns with the device not race it...' Valeria also gets a severe reaction from one of the roughest belles of the bunch, when she stands up looks around and innocently states that a good portion of the crowd were missing teeth!

Please check out the teaser link below.

I challenge you all not to crack up while Valeria searches for the right words after realizing, tough girl Dakota Redding might just kick her butt back to NYC.

There is definitely more to this bunch then fried food and hunting. You cannot miss these fun and fierce Southern gals trying to balance their careers and simultaneously deal with major drama!

We do ponder though; will our beautiful, positive Valeria and adorable Bebe make it back to us or will they become Bama Belles for life?! Stay tuned to find out Dec 5th @

10pm EST! By the way, If you can't relate to any of the women on the show at least tune in for BEBE, Valeria's charming Malti - POO!

TLC SERVES UP SOUTHERN COMFORT WITH BAMA BELLES 
Limited series, following five distinct southern women, premieres on 12/5 at 10PM 
 
Los Angeles, CA - TLC is set to premiere the new limited series BAMA BELLES, a docu-series following a group of down-home Alabama women as they juggle their careers, home lives and relationships with one another.  The series will air as three one-hour episodes over three consecutive weeks and debuts on December 5th at 10PM only on TLC.
 
These women, who reside in rural Dothan, Alabama, deal with everything from packed work schedules, to packing a lunch. They get down and dirty in the south hunting, fishing, four wheeling and tailgating at stock car races. These larger than life Southerners show everyone how real women do it on the other side of the Mason Dixon line.
 
Meet the gals of Bama Belles:

Amie Pollard - a 39 year old mother, radio personality and real estate developer who is brash and unapologetic. She is everyone's best friend, that is, until you cross her. She and her family are completely self made.

Melissa McLaney - a 35 year old mother, ex beauty queen and business owner who is always striving to be perfect. She gave up her well paid job to set up a family business with her husband, which they are now struggling to keep afloat.

Jana Roberts - a 28 year old preacher's daughter and beautician. She and her husband, a former Met's pitcher, are on an emotional rollercoaster as they go through IVF.

Val Tignini - a 26 year old internet entrepreneur who is a fish out of water in the deep south. After visiting her friend Amie while on a media tour for her website, she decides to move from New York to Dothan.
      
Dakota Redding - a 24 year old physical therapist and member of the army reserve. She is a tobacco chewing cowgirl who is about to enlist full time in the military.

"Bama Belles is exploring a group of women, a city and a life that we think our viewers will really connect to. TLC is taking a real look at the southern lifestyle of these women in a relatable and fun way," said Nancy Daniels, SVP Production and Development.



Bama Belles is produced for TLC by BBC Worldwide Productions. Executive Producers are Andy Frank, John Hesling and Melody Shafir.
