*VH1 has announced the casting of its upcoming hourlong reality series about the ex-wives of famous men.
Tentatively titled “Hollywood Exes,” 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 vice president of 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.
The show, due to premiere this summer, 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 famous former husbands.
