Comedians/wives of each other Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher are more than the funniest couple you're likely to meet - they're also a family business. For Rhea, that's meant giving up on the main way she's always defined herself: getting up and going to work every day. Instead, she keeps the house, walks the dog, and keeps her wife sane, while Cameron tours relentlessly, maintaining a steady flow of cash to ensure that there's a house to keep and a dog to walk. But now, with their TV show "Take My Wife" premiering on Seeso, everything is about to change - and they're hoping they can evolve together, the way they always have. But that's anything but a sure thing.
