“Southern Belles: Louisville” premieres tonight on SOAPNet at 10 p.m. At first, I thought this show would be a knockoff “Real Housewives” because some of the same themes come up — breasts, men, wealth, and ambition. But after watching a clip of Shea, Hadley, and Emily on “The View” today, I realized that “Southern Belles” might be exactly what a single lady needs for a night at home alone. These women are younger than most of the housewives from Orange County, New York City, and Atlanta, and they’re all single. The drama on “The Housewives” often centers around the single women — Gretchen Rossi was a gold digger, Kim Zolciak was a homewrecker, Bethenny Frankel was “pathetically single.” So, what will the Belles talk about? Old money vs. new money is one. Egos will clash. The women say their goal is to debunk the Southern girl stereotype. Learn more about the Belles after the jump.
