“Hollywood Exes,” as it is tentatively titled, will feature five ex-wives: Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith’s ex), Andrea Kelly (R. Kelly’s ex), Jessica Canseco (Jose Canseco’s ex) and Nicole Murphy (Eddie Murphy’s ex), who reportedly have known each other for years (yeah, right) and are looking to re-invent themselves.
According to VH1, the show will air this summer and will not be a repeat of “Basketball Wives,” “ Football Wives” or “Baseball Wives” even though Shauni O’Neal’s Shed Media is listed as a producer.
“These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment,” said Jeff Olde, executive vp of original programming and production at VH1. “Now these women must reinvent 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,” he added.
So will you guys be watching VH1’s new ex-wives club? As much as I would like to say I won’t- I admit to being especially curious about what R. Kelly’s ex-wife will have to say. She has been relatively mum through the years, save for an interview she gave Essence back in 2007.
