Synopsis

They're young, they're rich, they're sexy and they've got everything that fame and money can buy.

As the wives of players on the soccer team known as the Sparks, they should be having the time of their lives... but the reality is very different.

They say football is the new rock 'n' roll, and the Earls Park FC wives are living it to the full. They've got the designer gear, the palatial homes, the flash cars, the platinum credit cards, and the handsome superstar husbands.

But underneath it all they are ordinary women, struggling to keep their marriages intact while their husbands dazzle the crowds on the pitch... and the girls in the nightclubs.

Three couples - Donna and Ian Walmsley, Tanya and Jason Turner and Chardonnay Lane-Pascoe and Kyle Pascoe - deal with marriage, sex, drugs, high fashion, fast cars, staggering salaries, catfights, mansions, copious affairs and life in the celebrity spotlight.
