The hotties of British boy band The Wanted are making a new album — and they’re doing it in an amazing Los Angeles mansion, provided by their record label! The only thing getting in the way of their fun? Siva’s Girlfriend!

The Wanted is all moved in to Los Angeles and ready to start recording a new album — but first, the boys were ready to start partying. Two of the boys, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran, brought their girlfriends along for the ride, but Siva’s girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey isn’t making it an easy one!

Siva’s Girlfriend: I’d ‘Prefer Not To Be In The House’

When the episode started and the boys first settled in, it seemed as though they had it all: a beautiful house, an endless supply of booze and, most importantly (to them), beautiful girls to party with. But two of the boys already have their own beautiful girls — Tom’s girlfriend, Kelsey Hardwick, and Siva’s girlfriend, Nareesha — living in the house with them. Kelsey is one of the guys, Tom said, but Nareesha had a harder time adjusting to the boys’ crazy lifestyle.

The boys threw their first of many parties on the premiere, and it was a success in the eyes of the boys — except maybe Siva. Just as the party was getting started, Nareesha told Siva she wanted to go to bed! Being the loving boyfriend he is, he followed her, only to the dismay of his bandmates.

On a shopping trip later in the episode, Nareesha told Siva, “You need to decide what you’re going to do with your living situation; I’m pretty sure some of the lads won’t appreciate me being around all of the time. In the long run I don’t know how I’m going to cope with this; I would prefer not to be in the house.”

Max George: Siva Is A ‘Different Lad’ When Nareesha Is Around

As Siva and Nareesha spent the day together on the shopping trip, the rest of the boys bonded over multiple rounds of beer and shots at a local bar. While discussing how Siva was M.I.A., Tom referred to Nareesha as his “bird.” That’s probably not exactly the way a girlfriend would prefer to be viewed!

Max George chimed into the conversation, saying, “He’s a different lad when she’s around.” He also said Siva is a lot quieter in the presence of Nareesha and said that it’s like there are two different Sivas as a result of having a girlfriend.

“I like both Sivas, but I like the Siva on his own a bit more,” he said.

Siva Thinks The Boys Are ‘Growing Up In Different Ways’

Siva does recognize the stress that having a girlfriend like Nareesha puts on the band’s situation, but at the same time he’s realizing maybe their paths aren’t going in the same direction … like another UK boy band.

“Living with them and being with them for all of these years has made me see that we’re growing up in different ways,” Siva said. “Some of them are still stuck in their teenage years.”

He even admitted it’s not always easy to balance a band of boys and a serious girlfriend.

“Sometimes I feel torn between time with my girlfriend and time with the boys, ” he said.

Hopefully he won’t be so torn he’ll choose to leave the band. How tragic would that be?!

Scooter Braun Gets Real With The Lads

For those who weren’t aware, Scooter Braun — the man famous for discovering Justin Bieber — is also the manager of The Wanted, and although he may be dealing with plenty of current Bieber drama, The Wanted aren’t making his job any easier.

The boys partied a little too hard, too fast — and it was only the first episode! Scooter had to call them into his office to make sure they weren’t going to mess up the incredible opportunity they have, telling them, “If you’re going to party you have to be smart about it.”

But what did he think he was going to get when he spoiled a group of good-looking, British, 20-something boys to a beautiful mansion in a city like Los Angeles?

Who knows how much things will change throughout the season!


The lads had plenty of hilarious and candid things to say as the cameras were rolling, but in case viewers wanted something even more candid, a confession cam will be a part of the documentation of The Wanted’s crazy lifestyle. It doesn’t seem like there is much of a gray area with these boys, but we don’t really see that as a problem!

What did YOU think of tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers? Will Siva’s girlfriend issues will result in a boy band break-up?

i love siv and i think he is mature but come on nareesha the most important thing in a relationship is space..babes this is his career and his life you cant involve yourself in everything, if the boys leave because of you all this fun n money you are having now will go to the drain so do yourself the favour n let them be. get a house in the area if you must keep an eye on him but trust me no man loves a girl that is always all in his buisness he will hate u later if this group break because of you..get a life of your own or is it all gonna be about SIV HOW ABOUT YOU!!!!HE loves yes its crystal clear but he is doing what he loves ……..WHAT ARE YOU DOING

I love Siva and I think he’s mature, certainly more mature than the rest of the band members. He has realised what is important to him and I really respect him for doing what’s best for himself without succumbing to peer pressure. I take my hat off to him. Hope he and Naeesha stay together forever. Best of luck to them

Shiva is a genuine guy and is clearly in love with Nareesha. He doesn’t need an indian girl who is ‘better’ but one who he loves and she likewise. They both love each other you can see that for sure – a true and genuine happiness between them.

“Bird” is a British term for “girl” so when Tom said it, he wasn’t trying to be insulting.
