When Trace Adkins was on the Celebrity Apprentice, Victoria Pratt apparently sent out very flirtacious tweets, rooting him on. Radar Online reports:
When filming wrapped and he went on to star on All Star Celebrity Apprentice, Pratt was his biggest fan, eagerly tweeting recaps of the show, with flirty jibes aimed at Adkins. Soon it seems, Adkins’ wife may have become aware of their flirtation. “My Old Lady just gave me a mean look,” he tweeted on April 21. Pratt responded saucily, “Bahaha!! You’re lucky that’s all she gave you!!!”
After Adkins won the Celebrity Apprentice, Pratt sent a congratulatory tweet and Adkins supposedly wrote back, “Thanks, gorgeous! MWAH.”

Apparently, five days after some scandalous tweets, Trace Adkins took Pratt to the Stage Coach music festival in Indio, California as his guest of honor. She reportedly watched him from backstage and when fans asked her if she and her friend were groupies, Pratt replied, “Yes.” Apparently, Trace’s wife Rhonda was livid. Radar Online quotes a source who said:
Rhonda was totally humiliated. When Trace told her that he had fallen in love with Victoria Pratt, she completely flipped out. Victoria became Trace’s fantasy sex partner, and he talked constantly about how much he loved her. Adding insult to injury, Rhonda was told that Trace would compare his sexual experiences with her to fantasies of what it would be like with Victoria!
