Prince, R. Kelly, Will Smith, Eddie Murphy Ex-Wives Get Reality Show Tentatively Titled “Hollywood Exes”

Filed under : Entertainment

US cable network, VH1 announced on Wednesday last week that they are launching a series about the ex-wives of Hollywood celebs.

The show, which has the working title of “Hollywood Exes,” will feature 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).

The 10-episode series will follow the women as they establish their own lives apart from their famous exes. The show will debut in summer 2012.

In a statement,  Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1, Jeff Olde said:

“These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment. 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.”

The show is described this way:

Hollywood ex-wives are part of an exclusive sorority whose members’ lives seem to mirror that of a modern day Cinderella fairytale. But all the fame and fortune of marrying a celebrity may seem fun and glamorous at first, but it often comes with a price tag. Living in the shadow of your very famous husband can take its toll on your psyche when you feel second to his career.

These five women, who have all been friends for years and in some cases for as long as 20 years, want to show the world they are more than just a trophy wife with a pretty face. They want to establish themselves as independent, successful women and bring relevance and honor to themselves separate from their very famous exes…even if there is a little drama along the way.

The network has aired a number docu-soaps about the lives of wives/ex wives including “Mob Wives,” “Basketball Wives-Miami,” “Baseball Wives-L.A.” and the upcoming “Mob Wives: Chicago.”

So will you guys be watchin’?!?
