VH1 Announces Hollywood Exes Starring The Ex-Wives Of Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, And R. Kelly
There are really no limits to where VH1 will go with their reality shows. The network that has given us Basketball Wives, Mob Wives, Football Wives, and Love & Hip-Hop will unveil its latest reality TV offering this summer. Called Hollywood Exes, the show will give viewers a glimpse inside the lives of some of the most high-profile wives in the business. According to a press release about the show on VH1′s blog:
“They kept the homes fires burning while their husbands were topping the music charts and setting box offices ablaze worldwide. But now, as Hollywood’s A-List ex-wives, they must adjust their own courses without their former husbands and make a name for themselves in VH1′s new series Hollywood Exes (working title).
The series will star Nicole Murphy (ex wife of Eddie Murphy – 13 years), Jessica Canseco (ex wife of Jose Canseco – 4 years), Sheree Fletcher (ex wife of Will Smith – 3 years), Mayte Garcia (ex wife of Prince – 3 years), and Andrea Kelly (ex wife of R. Kelly – 12 years). Hollywood Exes will premiere in the summer of 2012 with 10 one-hour episodes.”
Of all the ex-wives set to star on the show, I’m most interested in Andrea, a former back-up dancer who tied the knot with R. Kelly in 1996 and went on to have 3 children with the R&B superstar. During their marriage in 2002, Kelly was indicted on various charges related to child pornography after a video surfaced showing him engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an allegedly underage woman. The duo divorced in 2009. The back-story of her marriage to Kelly alone is enough incentive for me to check out the show, which is set to premiere this summer with 10 one-hour episodes. Will you be tuned in?
