Hopefully these couples didn’t end things on an extremely sour note, because a whole lot of dirty laundry could potentially air out into the open this summer. The ex-wives of major superstars Will Smith, Eddie Murphy, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Prince[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]R. Kelly[/lastfm] and baseball icon Jose Canseco are all starring together in a new VH1 reality show tentatively titled Hollywood Exes.
The ex-wives include real-life best friends Mayte Garcia (formerly Mrs. Prince), Andrea Kelly (formerly Mrs. R. Kelly), Sheree Fletcher (formerly Mrs. Will Smith), Nicole Murphy (formerly Mrs. Eddie Murphy) and Jessica Canseco (formerly Mrs. Jose Canseco).
The 10-episode series will document their lives after the spotlight with their famous husbands and show viewers that there’s much more to the than being a ‘trophy wife.’
“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 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.
Now the question is, will you be tuning in to see the lives of these Hollywood Exes this summer?
