The latest entry into reality TV takes us inside the private lives of some of the biggest names in rock and roll when it follows three wives and one longtime girlfriend who are "Married to Rock."
Meet Etty Farrell, who met husband Perry Farrell, lead singer of Jane's Addiction, while auditioning to be a back-up dancer for the group's 1997 tour; AJ Celi, who has been in a relationship with guitarist Billy Duffy of The Cult for the past three years; Josie Stevens, a model who eloped with legendary rock guitarist Steve Stevens after eight years of dating; and Susan Holmes McKagan, who has been married to Duff McKagan of Guns 'N Roses since 1999.
Etty and AJ tell ET that this series is going to dispel some of the misconceptions about the private lives of rock stars and their significant others, one of which is that their relationships are not monogamous
"We took the same vows as everybody else and we stick to them," Etty says.
That doesn't mean with all the groupies around that jealousy doesn't rear its ugly head from time to time, but these ladies know how to deal with it.
"The groupie situation is that you know that they are there, you know what you are signing up for, so you have to be strong," AJ explains. "My personality is very strong. I am very much involved in my boyfriend's daily life. We don't really have room for [groupies]. We are too busy to get caught up with the groupies. If I worried about that, I wouldn't be a girlfriend."
And Etty adds, "I think you would be lying if you say that you don't get jealous, but at the end of the day, I know that I am married and I travel with my husband, so it does not give him a lot of room or options to go mess around. Not that he would. He is very trustworthy and he loves me a lot. The groupies make you want to step up the game a little bit, so you always show up to shows and you are looking put together."
For women who would like to find themselves in a similar relationship to those that the four women featured on "Married to Rock" are in, Etty advises, "You have to be true to yourself. Don't change yourself thinking: This is what it should be. This is what men want you to be. If he loves you and he chooses you, it is ultimately their choice. Don't rush. I don't want to say play hard to get, but definitely stay classy."
And AJ adds, "Let them chase you. Both of us, we talked about it a lot. Both of our guys chased us. There wasn't a question of whether I liked him, but he definitely had to court me for a long time before I would go on dates with him. Groupies … it doesn't usually work out for them. It is more of a one-night stand. Half the time, they can't wait to kick them out of bed."
As surprising as it sounds, AJ says that the road gets lonely and the attraction of groupies gets old.
"[Rock stars] need someone who knows them and what they are really going through," she says. "The road is stressful and it gets very tiring. They need a home base, someone they really love and can confide in. If it is a groupie, they are telling what is going on with them. We hold them dear. We take care of them. It is a lot of work to be with a rock star."
"Married To Rock" premieres Sunday, Nov. 7 at 10:30 p.m. on E!
