Tammy Wynette passed away in 1998, and now the issues surrounding her will are about to be exposed in detail for entertainment purposes.
'The Will: Family Secrets Revealed' is a TV show on Investigation Discovery that does just what the title says -- it exposes family secrets and squabbling by revealing what happens after someone dies and their will is revealed.
"Where there's a will, there's a way, and this new season of THE WILL offers viewers a way to glimpse into famous folks' lives and a side of their drama that we don't get to see too often," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. "Showcasing the aftermath of the afterlife, these stories prove that the outlandish lifestyles that celebrities lead don't seem to end when they go six feet under."
I've watched the show a few times and it's actually pretty entertaining stuff, but also makes me happy that when I die there won't be too much for my family to fight over and no deep dark secrets I want to remain that way.
The third season of the show is coming up and will feature a famous country face....Tammy Wynette.
Here's her episode info:
The Estate of Tammy Wynette
Premieres Thursday, October 18 at 9 PM E/P
In 1998, the queen of country music, Tammy Wynette, dies suddenly at only 55 years old. She leaves behind four daughters, her fifth husband, her music rights portfolio, and two $1-million life insurance policies. But after her daughters realize that they are cut out of their inheritance, they begin questioning the events surrounding their mother's death. They launch a $50-million wrongful death lawsuit against their stepfather and their mother's physician, creating a scandal of epic proportions and rocking the country music industry.
Despite the fact that Tammy died in 1998, issues with the family are still ongoing. Just this year there was a ruckus because Tammy's name was changed on her Nashville tomb from "Tammy Wynette" to "Virginia W. Richardson," her married name at the time of her death.
