The women who once stood in the shadows of R. Kelly, Prince, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith and Jose Canseco will now go primetime in the upcoming VH1 reality show “Hollywood Exes,” according to the show’s press release.
The one-hour series, which is slated for a ten-week summer run, will star Nicole Murphy Brown (Eddie Murphy’s ex, married 13 years, pictured second from left), Andrea Kelly (R. Kelly’s ex, married 12 years, pictured far left), Mayte Garcia (Prince’s ex, married 3 years, pictured second from right), Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith’s ex, married 3 years) and Jessica Canseco (Jose Canseco’s ex, married 4 years, pictured far right).
The women will allow cameras to follow them through their daily lives as they struggle to step out of their former spouses shadows to make a name for themselves.
Nicole Murphy Brown has dabbled in several ventures. Recently, the mother of five and fiancee of ex-NFL baller Michael Strahan, launched a handcrafted jewelry line last year called FLP. Garcia has been keeping busy as a dancer and actress. She was a judge on the first season of the now defunct show Oxygen’s “Dance our Ass Off.” Fletcher, who is the mom of Will Smith’s son, Trey Smith, is the founder and CEO of an organic beauty line, Whoop Ash. She is actually remarried to former NFL running back Terrell Fletcher, who is now the pastor of a San Diego church. Kelly, a choreographer and mother of three is preparing to launch her own clothing line. Canseco, the mother of one and former model, is also remarried to famed TV personality plastic surgeon Garth Fisher.
According to the network the women all “want to show the world that they are more than just a trophy wife with a pretty face.”
