Have you ever wondered how rich Trina Edwards is, as of late 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Edwards’ net worth is as high as $10 million, an amount earned through her appearance in the TV reality series, and through her marriage to former Louisiana Governor, Edwin Edwards.

Raised in Baton Rouge, in her adult years Trina supported the Republican Party and followed its ideals, but eventually fell for a Democrat.

She started sending letters to Edwin, while he was in prison serving his 11-year long sentence for racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud, wire fraud, and extortion. He was released from prison eight years after being imprisoned, and was to spend three more years under house arrest, but was put on probation earlier, thanks to good behavior. The two became very fond of each other, and soon after he was released from prison, Trina and Edwin started their relationship. The couple married on the 29th July 2011 at the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans. Two years later, the couple welcomed a new member to Edwards family, son Eli Wallace Edwards, born on the 1st August 2013. In interviews, the couple stated that Trina became pregnant through in vitro fertilization, utilizing Edwin’s frozen sperm. Also, in 2013, the two were subjects of the new reality show on Arts & Entertainment Network “Governor’s Wife”, which only increased Trina’s wealth. Since then, she has been focused raising her child, while Edwin returned to politics.

Before marrying Edwin Edwards, Trina was married to one Joshua Glenn Scott, with whom she has two grown-up children now. Trina’s relationships with Edwin’s four children from two previous marriages are unknown, but accusations of ‘gold digger’ have been leveled at her, apparently by Anna Edwards, among others.
