Hollywood Exes returns for a second season with its original cast, Nicole Murphy, ex-wife of Eddie Murphy, Jessica Canseco, ex-wife of Jose Canseco, Mayte Garcia, ex-wife of Prince, Sheree Fletcher, ex-wife of Will Smith, and Drea Kelly, ex-wife of R. Kelly, as well as one new cast member, Shamicka Lawrence, ex-wife of Martin Lawrence.
Thanks to season one's positive feedback and decent ratings, VH1 granted HollywoodExes a second season, and then those in charge of promoting the show promptly fell off the face of the earth. Seriously, it's virtually impossible to find any news about this show.
Color me shocked to find a few blurbs about season two of Hollywood Exes courtesy of Sheree Fletcher!
We're hearing some shocking rumblings today claiming that Daphne Wayans, who was set to join Hollywood Exes in season 2, has been fired by VH1!
Wivesconfidential.com is claiming that the ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans was canned during filming of the second season for behaving like a diva.
Most of the article smacks of hostility toward Daphne, so I'm not buying into it 100% at the moment. An excerpt: "Sources claim that Daphne thought she was Shaunie O’Neal and started to make demands on set that were not in line with her cast members. Daphne felt that because VH1 asked her to come for the second season that she was the HOT ISH."
VH1confirmsDaphne's addition to show today via a press release. Daphne is the ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans. They were married from 2001 to 2004 and have five children together. Daphne joins her long-time friends Nicole Murphyand Sheree Fletcher.
Today's press release also reveals that Hollywood Exes was a hit for the network!
