Sneak Peek: VH1′s Hollywood Exes Sizzles This Summer
Basketball Wives may be off the air (for now!), but you’ll have no shortage of rich babes behaving badly this summer.
Aside from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta which debuts on VH1 on Monday, VH1 is also set to air Hollywood Exes which will arrive a week later on Wednesday, June 27. The 10-episode docu-series stars Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy), Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith), Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince), and Andre Kelly (ex-wife of R. Kelly).
According to VH1, Hollywood Exes delves deep into the lives of a group of women who are separated from some of the most famous men in America. Simply put, these girls are starting over. They all divorced young and got married even younger, so now is when they need each other’s backs the most. And, from raising kids to starting up a new business, these women are ready to tackle a very busy year.
At a glance, all these girls are at different phases in their relationships with their exes. Some have remained friends, while others can’t even say their names out loud. But, either way, the girls have the support of each other to fall back on. These women aren’t exactly new acquaintances, either. Some have known each other even before they were married, so there is clearly a strong sisterhood within the group dynamic.
More than anything, this series will prove that through the struggles of a high-profile divorce and separation, these women can emerge from the shadows of their ex-husbands’ fame and fortune and show the world that they’re not just trophy wives with pretty faces. This fabulous group’s quest is to establish themselves as independent, successful women and bring relevance, honor, and fame to themselves separate from their exes—even if there happens to be some drama along the way.
“These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment,” says Jeff Olde, VH1′s Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Production. “Now, these women must re-invent themselves again, stepping out of the long shadows cast by their famous husbands and supporting each other as they define the next stage of their lives—this time on their own terms.”
