Classic Stepford wives strive to be perfect homemakers in a world of prize-winning pie recipes, PTA meetings, and perfect martinis but, behind closed doors, their marriages are as tarnished as neglected sterling silver. In the series SECRET LIVES OF STEPFORD WIVES, Investigation Discovery reveals the dirty laundry of real housewives desperate to cover up their deception, adultery, and greed in order to project a flawless family life. In the picket-fenced home where they raise their 2.5 children, they giggle demurely at their husbands’ jokes and refresh cocktails like clockwork. If these ladies who lunch weren’t impeccably dressed in the latest styles from Valentino, you’d think they stepped out of a time machine from 1958. They appear the picture of absolute perfection, but when the sugary façade begins to crack, down come the walls of their country club fairytales.
Each 30-minute episode features the true story of a housewife whose desire to keep up with the Joneses is matched only by her desperation to sweep her wrongdoings under the rug.
