“Hollywood Exes” is the latest in the never-ending series of “wives” shows including “Basketball Wives” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” In the new VH1 series, these ladies, at least, were actually once wives to rich and celebrated men. “Hollywood Exes” stars Nicole Murphy, ex-wife to Eddie Murphy; Andrea Kelly, ex-wife of R. Kelly; Mayte Garcia, Prince’s ex-wife, Sheree Fletcher, Will Smith’s first wife and mother of his oldest son, Trey, and Jessica Canseco, ex-wife of disgraced former baseball star Jose Canseco.
Kelly’s pain is freshest as she and R. Kelly are more recently divorced than anyone else and the two were married longer than anyone but Nicole and Eddie Murphy. Twelve years after her divorce from Prince (and his subsequent divorce from Manuela Testolini, now married to Eric Benet) Mayte is still single. Mayte is one of the few exes who doesn’t lead her memories of marriage with the amount of cars, designer clothes and firsthand access she had. She refers to Prince as her “first love” and for all the women who’ve wished to be in her shoes, it seems like they were pretty nice when she was still in them. So far, “Hollywood Exes’” most amazing revelation is that Mayte and Prince’s second ex-wife are good friends. Wow.
