BFFs for life.
The women of Secrets and Wives are opening up all about the new series, which premieres on Bravo on tonight, and follows a group of longtime pals as they live and love on Strong Island.
”There’s no jealousy between us; we’re all really supportive,” Andi Black tells Long Island Weekly. “Most of the time when you have all these gorgeous women, you think you wouldn’t be supportive of each other, but there’s a love there.”
”We all have had our weak times, and when you see all these other women being strong and lifting each other up, you realize you can get past anything,” she adds. “There’s not an issue that someone can’t relate to on the show.”
The show will definitely put spotlight on the group's undeniable bond and how it’s an extension of their lives at home with their families. “Friends are the family that you choose and these women have really, at one time or another, been crucial in my path,” Andi said. “It’s hard to admit to a lot of people you have these failures, but to have women around you going through the same thing, it helps.”
Her pal, Liza Sandler, shares that when viewers tune in to the show—which takes place on the North Shore of Long Island—they will get to see the real ups and downs these women are facing. Bottom line: things aren't always perfect.
”We have issues and don’t act like everything’s rosy and perfect,” Liza says. “We’re all moms with families and have failed at one point or another. We’re completely relatable.”
It's a sentiment that Andi mirrored when also chatting up about the upcoming series. “When you see us cry, we’re crying. We really touched on some sensitive issues that other women have,” Andi says. “You’re not watching a fabricated show. The camera stops and we keep going.”
Don't get them wrong. It's not all about breaking out the tissues—there's also plenty of good times to be had. “We have a lot of fun and we just act like kids,” Andi adds. “You don’t die at 50; you really continue living.”
