PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – When she’s not watching her husband score for the Pittsburgh Penguins on television, the wife of defenseman Kris Letang will be appearing on television herself.
LaFlamme made the announcement last night on her Instagram profile.
Je peux finalement annoncer ma participation à l'émission Mariées au hockey sur la chaîne W qui débutera le 19 avril prochain! I can finally share it. I'm part of the new @hockey_wives season premiering April 19th on the @w_network. Check out the other ladies alongside me: the gorgeous @maripiermorin, the glowing and soon-to-be mom of 2 @vanessa_vandal and some amazing ladies @ebeesworld @mrsvlasic @ericalundmark.
Joining LaFlamme this season will be the return of Maripier Morin, the fiancee of Brandon Prust and Emilie Blum, the wife of Jonathan Blum. New for season three is Vanessa Vandal, the girlfriend of former Penguin David Perron, Erica Lundmark, the wife of Jamie Lundmark and Martine Auclair-Vlasic, the wife of Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Several months after a miscarriage, while having recovered from the trauma of the event, and starting to consider trying again, she’s pouring her energy into a dream she has long had: This year, she is launching a youth clothing line that is anything but a vanity project. Catherine is prepared to go all in— from the designs and fabric shopping, to developing an e-‐commerce site, and marketing strategy, with a sizable investment the stakes are very high.
Based in Montreal, she is already feeling the strain of being apart from her operation back in Pittsburgh and will have to spend much of the season going back and forth between the cities. She has rallied some hockey wife friends around her, like fellow Penguins wife Veronique Fleury, to help her execute the design of the site, and good friend Vanessa Vandal for moral support as she puts herself out there and embarks on building her own business from the ground up.
The time is now to fire on all cylinders to make her idea a reality as she plans towards her big launch party, to be well-‐attended by the hockey community this coming winter. There will be a lot of pressure for a repeat Stanley Cup performance this year in Pittsburgh, so thus pressure will be on Catherine to launch her line while watching Kris hit the ice again.
It’s only been 2 years since a traumatic stroke nearly took his life, and ever since she has mixed emotions when he embarks on another high-‐stakes season. Will she be able to have it all? Launch her new line, support her husband to another Stanley Cup, and get pregnant with baby number 2?
