Nancy Travis Juggles Two Families

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s hard enough having one family, but try juggling two of them like actress Nancy Travis.

Travis – best known for So I Married An Axe Murderer – plays Bill Engvall’s wife on The Bill Engvall Show, and is having a tough time explaining her “TV family” to her real kids.

Travis has two sons ages 10 and six, who recently came to a taping to see Mom in action, and walked away slightly confused.

Her six-year-old had “trouble separating” the series from reality and just couldn’t understand why his Mommy has another family.

Travis says, “He was baffled. He kept pointing to Bill [Engvall] and my kids on the show and asking me, ‘Are those your real kids? Is that your other husband?’ I told him it was my pretend TV family.”

Her 10-year-old was pretty understanding of Mom’s double life and was more interested in taking over Travis’ job.

She says, “Now he wants to act and be in the show, so I’m having to keep that at bay a bit.”

As far as her real life husband goes, Travis says he has a “healthy attitude” about sharing her with TV husband Engvall.

The new season of The Bill Engvall Show premieres June 12 on TBS.
