VH1 Strikes Again! Orders "Hollywood Exes" Starring Ex-Wives Of Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Prince, R. Kelly

No comment from me on this… why bother… I'll just deliver the news and let you guys do the talking, so here ya go from THR:

The unscripted show, which has been granted a 10-episode order… stars Nicole Murphy (formerly Mrs. Eddie Murphy), Jessica Canseco (formerly Mrs. Jose Canseco), Sheree Fletcher (formerly Mrs. Will Smith), Mayte Garcia (formerly Mrs. Prince) and Andrea Kelly (formerly Mrs. R. Kelly).

“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. T

he tentatively titled Hollywood Exes sets out to peel back the curtain on Cinderella tales gone wrong. The five women have been friends for several years and are looking to make a name for themselves outside of their bold-face exes.

And by the way, it'll be an hour-long series.

***Hollering ahead*** "Hey Nadine, please come back". @ Nadine, woman, you know you can write. Yes sir, you have skills. However, you've completely flipped the script with your last 2 posts…March 27, 2012 10:55 AM & March 27, 2012 10:40 AM. I mean… my words—> "Simply put, I believe tv & film do not warrant all the blame and "power" that many black folks so freely give it". But nooooo, you drove off the road to "The nineties was a fricking' Renaissance for Black people BECAUSE of the media and its reach to Blacks outside of Northeast Hip Hop and better representation on television and in movies… The Golden age of Hip Hop, the voice of the young Black lower to upper middle class normalizing vocabulary, deep lyrics, a multitude of skills, an awareness of self and community, a renaissance". WOW Nadine… "I" (and I assume Blutopaz) was referring to early learned behavior, not the gradual shaping of new trends. I do not believe I, nor Blutopaz, ever said "the media" was not and has never been used as a form of propaganda. So Miss tired editor… "Ya'll WENT OFF"??? *side-eye* :-)

who cares

prince was famous before mayte stepped in the picture. some of these people have been divorced for years get over it!

"this time on their own terms,” with $100,000 per month alimony payments that is. And they will def get a bunch of silly female fans of all colors watching this drivel.

Aside from all that, in that pic Nicole looks like a light skinned Eddie-lol

So how does the hair pulling, drink throwing, screaming, and wearing short skirts with no underwear fit in with all that?

Any chance this will actually be a show about, not the men they used to be married to, not a bunch of loud-talking, backbiting, gossiping, fighting, but about women supporting women as they make the most of their lives?

When you have Black women who would rather air their dirty laundry than make a legitimate living, you have little girls who grow up to think that this is the model for success. I cry for our daughters.

in the words of Dave Chappelle.."Fame is scary. look at bill clinton…can you imagine being so famous that someone sicks your duck and then THEY'RE famous?"

Am I the only one who doesn't believe that "The five women have been friends for several years…?" -_-

The war against black women continues (with our help). Mainstream media NEVER SLEEPS when it comes to finding new ways to help us degrade ourselves. It's going to take years to recover from the misleading content this type of programming presents. We have enough to fight against without the proliferation of these crass shows. How can such a short program description contain so many bull droppings.

"Extraordinarily strong women." Right. Moving along.
