Pilar Sanders Dishes On "Football Wives"



    More football drama comes to television, but this time it's the ladies who are taking sides and going to battle.

    Six wives and a girlfriend of current and former Dallas Cowboys and other football players star in the new VH1 reality show Football Wives, which premieres Sunday.

    Deion Sanders' wife, Pilar, takes center stage. Sanders says she wants to show America who she is in order "to dispel any of the rumors of being a football wife -- you get to sit home, eat Bon Bons and order people around to do everything for you. Absolutely not."

    Showing off her own identity is another big part of the show. "You don't always want to be just someone's wife," she says in one clip.

    Viewers will see Sanders and the other ladies deal with family, career, and each other. And whether it's a Bible study or a catfight, it all happens in Dallas.

    "You deal with multiple personalities. You may not always get along with them. You may not always agree," Sanders said.

    The message she hopes to get across? "You're significant with or without a man. You're significant with or without children. You are someone."

    Throughout the season, Pilar was looking to make some new friends -- you'll have to watch to see what happens.

    The half-hour show airs Sundays at 9:30 p.m. Central on VH1.
