Dustin and Nicole Brown on being featured in Hockey Wives show

For those who expect Brown to be featured in an upcoming reality TV series, he quickly dismissed that speculation. His wife, Nicole, will be in “Hockey Wives,” along with others who are married to NHL players, as first reported by Yahoo Sports.

"I just told her I didn’t want to be involved," Dustin Brown said. "Everyone thinks it’s like ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashian’ show. I’m in it for about four and half seconds, in the yard playing with the kids."

The series is to be aired in Canada and almost all of the filming has been completed, according to Nicole Brown. She stressed it would not be a distraction. “We would never do it during the season when we have so much going on,” she said.

One goal is to show family life. To that end, some footage was shot back in their hometown, Ithaca, N.Y., in the summer as well as the first day of school for their children. It also counters stereotypes about hockey wives and girlfriends, she said.

"Not everybody is an actress or a model — yes, there are some — and they’re fabulous," Nicole Brown said. "But that’s not everybody. We’re not sitting at home on the couch, eating bonbons, paying people to take care of our kids and shopping every day."
