The ex-wives of some of Hollywood’s biggest names will pursue their own celebrity on a new VH1 reality show, the L.A. Times reports.
“Hollywood Exes” is set to air this summer. Lined up to appear on the series are Nicole Murphy (Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife), Jessica Canseco (Jose’s wife of four years), Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith’s ex), Mayte Garcia (Prince’s wife for three years) and Andrea Kelly (married to R. Kelly for 12 years).
Longtime friends, the women will be partnering onscreen at least in part to promote their own celebrity. VH1 has ordered 10 episodes.
The Times piece offers this summary of their resumes: “Murphy is a former model who has five children with the movie star. Canseco is a former Hooters waitress who wrote a tell-all memoir about her life with the baseball star, then posed nude in Playboy and is now married to a plastic surgeon. Fletcher has a child with Smith and is currently married to Terrell Fletcher, minister of City of Hope International Church in San Diego. Dancer and choreographer Garcia has done a bit of acting since splitting with Prince; she’s appeared on ‘Psych,’ ‘The Closer’ and ‘Nip/Tuck,’ and choreographed Britney Spears’ belly dance for her ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ video and performance at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. Kelly was the R&B singer’s principal dancer and wife for many years and now has her own fitness classes and a line of clothing.”
