For those wondering what exactly it’s like to date a guy in a boy band, Nick Carter‘s new reality show I Heart Nick Carter, premiering on VH1 tonight (Sept. 10) at 10/9 CT, will reveal everything. In an interview with Radio.com, Carter opened up about the show and how he and his wife deal with death threats from fans.
“I’m basically starting a life with my wife now,” the Backstreet Boy told Radio.com. “It shows how difficult it is to be in a relationship with someone like myself. The lifestyle that we actually live, being in a boy band at 34-years-old, all the things she puts up with because she’s just a normal girl and it’s hard. It leads to a happy fairy-tale ending but it’s not typical.”
While Carter describes the show as a unique love story, he said it does have it’s fair share of drama in it. In fact, in an interview last year with Radio.com, he revealed that life isn’t easy for the wives and girlfriends of a boy band member.
“My fiancé actually gets the brunt of it,” he told us last year. “There are girls out there that send her death threats and tell her they want to kill her and write her name on Twitter and draw pictures of her. We deal with that on a daily basis.”
