EX WIVES CLUB: Nicole Murphy SET To Join The Ex-Wives Of Prince, Will Smith, R. Kelly And Jose Canseco For "Hollywood Exes" Show

Talk about juicy.  The ex-wives of Eddie Murphy, Prince, Will Smith, Jose Canseco and R. Kelly are all about to be in one room.  On one show.  Producers at VH1 are making that vision a "reality" with their upcoming series "Hollywood Exes."  Get the deets inside....

 

With perhaps one of the best reality show concepts heard thus far, VH1 is going to put the ex-wives of some of the world's biggest stars together for a reality as only they can.  It's been rumored this was happeneing....and now it is.

The working titles of the series is "HOLLYWOOD EXES" and 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).  The network expects the show to  premiere in the summer of 2012 with 10 one-hour episodes.

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.

 

"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 Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1. "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."

 

HOLLYWOOD EXES will be brought to you by the same folks behind "Basketball Wives" so......

ladies (and I apologize because I use that loosely) please do not do this... let's have a little class, shall we?... but if you must, please reserve some dignity the only good thing I can say is Will Smith's ex-wife is married to a pastor so perhaps that might some intervene some good but word other than that we're good, it doesn't appear that too many are interested or will be watching... so spare yourselves the embarrassment... do not be shameless, thirsty, money-grubbing *ahem, excuse me*... in general ladies, women, girls, females: ALL money is not good money do not sell your soul for the "almighty dolla"

"These women want to be

"These women want to be recongnized for something more than just being the ex-wife of a celebrity? Alright! BUT to do so they use the fact that they were married to a celebrity? Tss.. The best way to show that you're independant is to do something on your own, by yourself, about yourself and using your own tools and NOT by using the fact that you were married to a celebrity! Just my opinion"

Who cares about these women?

Who cares about these women? I don't even give a sh*t what my exes are doing let alone these women. Reinvted themselves huh? Obviously they have not since they are doing a show based solely on being the EX of a celebrity!!! This is just dumb on so many levels. VH1 is such a disappointment.

What I don't understand is

What I don't understand is why people keep saying black women are triflin for this. White women have these shows too...we just don't watch them because most of us are black! And as soon as the Latino's get a few gold-diggers famous enough to make a buck under their belt, they'll have one too. The love of money is not a black thing, it's a human thing. I agree, these shows are tackless and need to stop but I don't appreciate the notion that it's just black people.

So you are judging the show

So you are judging the show before it evens airs? If it turns out that it is classless junk then I will co-sign on the critism, but can we at least wait until the show actually premieres before these women are classified as classless fools.

IT'S GOING TOO FAR, WAY TOO

IT'S GOING TOO FAR, WAY TOO FAR, VH1 IS DOING WHY TOO MUCH DESTRUCTION TO THE BLACK FEMALE IMAGE AND IT IS RIDICULOUS. WHY NOT DO SOME FAKE SCRIPTED FOOLERY IF THEY MUST CONTINUE TO PROFIT OFF OF THIRSTY FEMALE STUPIDITY, WHY MUST IT BE CATEGORIZED AS "REALITY" I MEAN SERIOUSLY, WHY MUST EVERYTHING ON VH1 BE GARBAGE, EVEN CHILI'S SHOW WAS A GARBAGE REPRESENTATION BECAUSE OF HER RIDICULOUS DEMANDS, AND T.I & TINY MIGHT GO HARD FOR EACH OTHER BUT THAT FAMILY REPRESENTATION IS RECKLESS TOO, T.I LAUGHING AND SAYING EVERYBODY ALREADY KNOW THAT WHEN HIS SON SAID "YOU TREAT MY MOMMA BAD" AND THEN CAN'T NEITHER ONE OF THEM SPEAK WELL BUT THE GOT BUSINESSES AND WRITING OUT CONTRACTS FOR OTHERS, THAT DOES NOTHING TO ENCOURAGE KIDS TO STAY IN SCHOOL AND TAKE ENGLISH CLASS SERIOUS. AND YES THESE GROWN WOMEN DESERVE SOME BLAME, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT VH1 PRODUCERS ARE WHISPERING SWEET NOTHINGS IN THEIR EAR AND FEEDING OFF THESE WOMEN'S DESPERATE DREAMS TO BE FAMOUS AND MAKE EASILY MONEY. BASKETBALL WIVES THOUGHT MARRYING A BALLER WAS THEIR FREE TICKET THROUGH LIFE FOR THE LOVE OF RAY-J GIRLS, FLAVOR OF LOVE GIRLS, ETC. WHY DO VH1 FEMALES HAVE TO BE SO PATHETIC EVERY SHOW???????????????????? EVERY SINGLE FEMALE THEY TALK INTO THIS GARBAGE IS THIRSTY FOR THE LIFE OF A ROCKSTAR AT ANY COST. LET THEM ASK A WOMEN WITH SOME DECENCY ABOUT HERSELF TO DO THE SHOW AND I BET SHE SAY NO AND GOODBYE. HECK, EVEN SHAUINE MAKES HER APPEARANCE VERY VERY VERY SCARCE, AND WHEN SHE'S ON THEIR SHE'S QUIET LIKE A PEACEFUL CHURCH MOUSE (SHE'S FAKE, BUT AT LEAST SHE'S FAKING DECENCY) AND WHAT ABOUT MONA SCOTT HIDING BEHIND THE SCENES. i don't give them any ratings on vh1 internet or tv, but i still watch basketball wives online because i'm honesty i just want to see the bully get bullied back in the same devastating way she dishes it out, i'm talking about evelyn.

They want to be independent

They want to be independent of their ex husbands yet the premise of the reality show is life without the famous ex and the "price tag" for having that relationship? You have got to be kidding me. My intelligence has just been assaulted.
Nick's picture

"independent, successful

"independent, successful women and bring relevance and honor to themselves separate from their very famous exes" What are they, deities that "glory and honor" should be given unto them? I thought I just read a scripture for a second there. The synopsis of the show sounds like one of those ghetto novel books. It's overly produced and very hollywood reality dramatic. I can already see where this show is going. On that note, I see the feminist agenda is in full affect. Black women are constantly being programmed and indoctrinated with this theory of "independent female". To espouse to this contradictory statement results in being single or unwed mother (no judgment). Other nationalities value a family unit with a mother and father, however the younger black generation who will be the future embrace this disturbing notion of and independent woman yet shake their heads at the state of their communities. I'm not knocking women who are struggling on their own who dated useless men (make wiser decisions), but to celebrate and uplift the image of a woman without a man because she doesn't need one, has an affect on you. Women were created for Men and man for woman. Stop being programmed and wake up.

black women are off the

black women are off the chain. i saw when it first started happening after the 1. equal rights into late sixties and 2. the invention of makeup for black women such as fashion fair and florrie roberts and hair products like johnsons and those perms. then 3. the jeffersons was big by that time and wizzy used to give george hell. she stayed yelling at him. 4. james got phased off of good times. then 5. by the times videos kicked in and tina turner triumphed over ike then it really blew up. then 6. then by terri mcmillan spelling it out in waiting to exhale it'd become full blown. then 7. the diary of the mad black woman was exposed. so now a black man cant tell a black woman sh!t. and if he formulates complete sentences and takes care of his skin and his teeth he's called a feg. black women are off the chain. they all have reality shows talking about how no good the men are. just ask the braxtons.

Aww hell! This is about to be

Aww hell! This is about to be some bullsh*t! Why not be an EX-WIFE and MOVE ON with your LIFE like common regular folks do? Black women get divorced daily in this world and you don't seem them running to do a tell-all book or air their dirty laundry on a reality series. Out here in the REAL WORLD black women who get divorced-WORK 9-5, PAY THEIR BILLS, PAY RENT OR MORTGAGES, TAKE CARE OF THEIR KIDS, AND MOVE ON! Now that's some "REALITY" FOR YOUR ASS. I am not sure why CELEBRITY ex-wives can't do the damn same!
