Stars of Texas Women React to Show's Cancellation

I brought you the news yesterday of the cancellation of CMT's Fort Worth-based reality TV show, Texas Women.  Twitter is all a-buzz and fans want to know what's next for these ladies, so I reached out to the show's cast to get their reaction and ask them what was next for them.

"Hurricane" Hannah Helvey
Hannah Helvey texted me from the road and said, "I'm at a ropin' but I wanted to respond because I have so much to say!

I was grateful to get the opportunity to do Texas Women and to Susan Hartman believing in us and her show idea so much!! The show itself helped me grow and learn who I really was and discover I was so much more than just 'Hurricane Hannah'.

I've been out in Las Vegas the past few months just really figuring out what I want to do with my life and I'm excited to let you know there are going to be a lot of surprises coming from me in the next year, so watch out world! Also a huge thank you to all the fans for being there for me thru hands down the most emotional and hardest year of my life*!  I love and appreciate each and everyone of you!! Stay Blessed, Hannah Helvey"

*Fans will recall that Hannah's boyfriend, Ruben Riguero was killed earlier this year in a tragic shooting.

Ali Dee emailed me with this sentiment:

"Texas Women allowed me to create an incredibly strong and supportive fan base and allowed my music to reach people all over the country. I hope the people that love the show continue to be a part of our lives. My dad always says sometimes it takes one door closing so that another door can open.

I'm really looking forward to spending two weeks this summer touring Europe with my band as we visit military bases in Netherlands, Germany, Kosovo, the UK and more!"

Ali's EP "Sweet Southern" is available on iTunes and you can catch the video for her first single, "Sweet Southern Charm" here.
