"Secret Lives of Women: Open Relationships" on TV

WE (Women's Entertainment) TV

New York poly activist Birgitte Philippides writes in excitedly:

I wanted to give you the heads-up that I will be appearing on the WE Network's critically acclaimed TV show "The Secret Lives of Women," in the episode on OPEN RELATIONSHIPS — starting this Tuesday at 10 p.m. (the show will continue airing throughout the year, and on video-on-demand). I was profiled extensively throughout the hour-long program about my life, my art and my loves.

Here is the show's promo video, featuring Birgitte.

"They also include on their website," she writes, "an extensive bio about me, my art, polyamory, and my journey with battling an eating disorder and body image, among other topics."

The show will air on each of the next two Tuesday nights, July 22 and 29. Go to the WE TV site and enter your zip code for local availability.

WE TV calls itself "the content destination where strong, confident women connect to fun, entertaining programming focused on pop culture, personal style and relationships."

Here is their description of the Open Relationships show:

Not all women marry the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. For these four women, one man just isn’t enough!

Christa has been married to Ken for eight years. The first few were monogamous, but one eye-opening evening with her husband and a female stranger led to a revelation: she likes women and doesn’t mind sharing her husband with them. Now they have an open relationship. Christa is currently dating two women, and both she and Ken freely indulge in one-night stands. Eventually they plan on having kids and settling down, but until then, nobody is off limits.

Keysha is in a committed relationship with long-term boyfriend Mike. Together, they raise two kids. Mike understands when Keysha doesn’t feel like being romantic, even if she’s had the energy to do so all day. You see, while there is only one Mike in Keysha’s life, there are many “Johns.” Keysha is a prostitute at the famous Kit Kat Ranch in Nevada and to make a living, she can be with over a dozen men a day. What’s different about this open relationship though, is that it’s strictly a professional one… the world’s oldest, to be exact.

Birgitte is a painter living in New York City. A main source of artistic inspiration for her is her lovers. Luckily for admirers of her work, she has no shortage of muses. Birgitte is polyamorous, which literally means “many lovers”. She is also the leader of Polyamorous NYC, the East Coast’s largest poly organization. From cuddle to pool parties, Birgitte has a wealth of love to share in the city that never sleeps.

For former banking professional Dee Dee, the dream of being her own boss and fulfilling her sexual fantasies on a weekly basis has come true. Dee Dee’s lifestyle as a Swinger has led to the opening of “Black Rose Swing Club,” a full service bar for those who enjoy no-strings-attached sex. If you ever want to grab a drink from a lingerie clad bartender, take in some pole dancing, or enter a wet T-shirt contest while seeking a partner for the night, this happily married wife of twenty years is the person to call.

Wednesday, July 23 at 1am Eastern | 12 Central

Psst...They do know that once they air the show, their lives aren't "secret" anymore, right?
