The Hollywood Exesare focused on their individual business ventures this week.
Sheree FletcherandNicole Murphymeet for breakfast. Sheree isn’t willing to relocate to live with her husband, Terrell Fletcher. Terrell lives in San Diego, but Sheree is in L.A. She’s come to realize that she fears losing her identity. She doesn’t want to be reduced to “Pastor’s wife.” Nicole can relate. She says, when she was married to Eddie Murphy, no one knew who she was and her plans were put on the back burner.
Andrea Kelly returns to Millennium to talk to the owner Robert. Andrea is disappointed by the attendance in her dance class. Andrea is stressed – she left everything in Chicago to come to L.A. – but she’s not attracting the crowds she is used to. Her ego is a little bruised, I’m sure. Robert suggests a showcase… and all is right in Andrea’s world again. Andrea leaves excited and hopeful.
Why you ask? Nicole’s fiance Michael Strahan is being listed on a very short list to join Kelly Ripa as her new co-host on Live With Kelly and ???
TMZ reports that the retired NFL star is Kelly’s permanent co-host and that ABC insiders from NYC are say Michael is definitely in and will be announced shortly. Dang – Nicole has some serious A-List luck!
There’s no such thing as too many photo posts, in my ever so humble opinion! I love checking out what the stars are wearing, where they’re going, etc. Here we have another gallery from VH1′s 2012 Do Something Awards, held last night at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to give us an hourly play by play of their lives. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

It’s the day after the public argument between Mayte GarciaandJessica Canseco. Mayte called Jessica an elephant, or something, Jessica felt attacked, Jessica’s snide responses got to Mayte, and Mayte threw a wine glass out of anger. Nicole Murphy was left sitting alone, probably debating whether or not she’s paid enough to deal with this nonsense.
Andrea Kelly and Sheree Fletcher are now crying that they need some “serious retail therapy” after that “fiasco.” Funny, since those two are the ones responsible for the public showdown. Mayte had been avoiding Jessica since Palm Springs, because she was having issues dealing with Jessica’s flippant attitude surrounding her abortion, and then Andrea and Sheree encouraged Mayte to talk to Jessica. Mayte and Jessica needed to talk, eventually, but in private. Not in a loud restaurant fully stocked with wine glasses. Anyway, Andrea and Sheree need some time, now, to shop and gossip.
The Hollywood Exes‘ getaway to Palm Springs wasn’t the nice relaxing time they all hoped for. The Exes dealt with some controversial subjects, including animal rights, religion, and abortion. Seriously, could the topics get any more intense? Whether shopping or participating in drunken acrobats, there were certainly some good times shared as well. However, the bad times dominated the trip and many feelings were hurt. This week, apologies are made with mixed results.
Andrea Kelly meets her new boyfriend Percy for lunch. Percy’s peeking at Andrea’s cheeks, and they’re all smiles. Andrea is happy with Percy. She says he gets her and they have fun. Percy asks about Palm Springs. Andrea’s like, “Oh, you should be asking what didn’t happen in Palm Springs!” Percy is surprised to hear about Jessica Canseco and Sheree Fletcher‘s fight. He’s says, “They don’t even seem like they have anything in common to argue about.”
Last week I spoke with Sheree Fletcher from Hollywood Exes. Hot on the heels of a drama-filled episode where Sheree experienced some conflict with Jessica Canseco, we talked about how the cast maintains true friendships and what her experiences with both reality TV and being thrust into the public eye have been. I also spoke to Sheree about merging her strong religious beliefs with reality television.
Sheree was so gracious and down-to-earth. She was open-minded, friendly, and we had an earnest conversation about her experiences with the show, the other women, and building her brand Whoop Ash.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
Sheree shares that her motivation for joining the show was an appreciation of the concept. “I liked what the producers were trying to do. The focus was on the women; I wouldn’t have been a part of a show that focused on my ex.”
From the get-go the premise was to focus on a group of women who were once married to “high profile” men and had common experiences. “They wanted to put together a sorority of sorts where women could come together and share their experiences and empower and support one another,” Sheree explains.
