What makes for better reality television than the scorned exes of television? You know the answer is "not much" if you keep up with the ladies of Hollywood Exes! Now, it's being reported that two more celebrities' former wives are hoping to score their own show.
If that's the case, CeeLo Green and Usher should be shaking in their ridiculously expensive shoes, because Christina Shanta Johnson and Tameka Foster (the men's respective exes) want to be reality stars! As you know, of course, both divorces were nasty, nasty, nasty!
This week, Mayte's dad is coming to town to meet Gia, so Mayte sets up a mini makeover for Nelly. Mayte's parents haven't seen each other in 1 1/2 years. Seems weird – but it works for them. Mayte loves Nelly's updated look, saying, "Mom's gonna get some, um, EWW." Meanwhile, Sheree and Drea shop for baby stuff, with a side dish of bash Jessica. Doesn't Drea have a broken foot? Sheree have some ash to whoop? Anything to do besides talk about Jessica?
First, Drea picks out a blue bib, and Sheree suggests one that's more girly. Drea finds a purple bib, and Sheree lectures, it's too Prince-y. Seriously? Then, Drea gets emotional, buying baby stuff for Mayte. Drea and Sheree agree that Mayte seems less sad and no longer stuck in a state of mourning since Gia.
Sister Wives debuted on Sunday night and is off to a strong start with 2.5 million. We're still planning to cover it, but most likely not until next week due to technical difficult difficulties this week!
This week, Mayte Garia frantically prepares to bring a baby into her home, Nicole Murphy enjoys a little too much tequila prior to giving a public speech, and Jessica Canseco continues to annoy Drea Kelly's face off. Oh, Sheree Fletcher also unpacks some boxes, and I can't help but to wonder how many people will change the channel this week.
Mayte has just days to prepare her house and fill it with baby stuff. Can you say overwhelming?! While shopping, she tries to focus on essentials only, but Nelly is easily distracted by the cutesy stuff. Pink hats, hand puppets, and pink booties! Oh my! Mayte demands that Nelly focus on important things only, saying, "I know what it's like to pack up baby clothes, and I don't want to do it again."
No one knows how to marry and divorce better than the ladies of Hollywood Exes. I kid, I kid. Sometimes I think these ladies are a more authentic bunch than their reality counterparts, and in the next moment, I'm reminded that these women know that cattiness and craziness brings the ratings…and the paychecks!
I'm sure y'all would agree that the former Mrs. R. Kelly is one of the more entertaining–and dramatic–of the bunch. When she's not spouting off hilarious quips and one-liners, Drea Kelly can be found stirring the pot and checking text alerts that let her know when someone has tweeted her praises. Hey, at least she's honest!
Nicole Murphy is certainly the HBIC on Hollywood Exes. The stunning beauty who is often the calm that holds the group together helped create the show which gives viewers an exclusive glimpse into the aftermath of an A-List marriage. And Nicole definitely wants viewers to know the show is honest.
"You know what? It's real," Nicoletells Ebony. "Thank God these women are my friends and we’ve all been through similar situations on different levels. It’s like a sisterhood that we have, and it’s a great support system all in one."
Nicole says the women strive to be authentic on the show. "The people that I’ve been working with—the cameramen, the producers and all them—they actually become like a second family. They become your friend and you forget that camera is there eventually. Eventually you’ll be like, 'Oh shoot, I didn’t say that! Did I say that? Oh God!'"
The Bravo heavy hitter has seen a drop in viewers since the premiere of season 5 which pulled in 2.84 million fans, but this week they managed to climb back up to a whopping 2.7 million (last week was just 2.1). I can't wait to see what the numbers will be after the Joe vs Joe vs everyone brawl actually airs this coming Sunday!
Princesses Long Island hasn't been able to break that 1 million mark since its premiere episode, so it'll be interesting to see if Bravo goes forward with a season 2.
Hollywood Exes proved that making the move to Sunday nights was a bad, bad, bad idea! The show premiered its second season last week on Monday night to an impressive 1.7 million viewers tuning in. However, they made the move to Sunday this week (the new permanent night) and lost almost half of their audience, plummeting to just 895,000!
I've said it before – spread it out! I'm so tired of the networks trying to cram SO many shows in on Sundays! Give us some other shows to look forward to the rest of the week! Hopefully VH1 will see the error in judgment and they'll announce a night change.
