More of the same old, same old on Vh1’s Hollywood Exes. The only exception being Andrea Kelly‘s new man! She says the “ex to R. Kelly” pill is a usually a tough one to swallow. Will new guy Percy handle it well or run for the hills? Before we get to the interesting part of the episode, we start with Nicole Murphy‘s house hunting woes. She renovates her house, someone offers to buy it for a ridiculous amount of money, and she cashes in. Boohoo.
Nicole (ex to Eddie Murphy) meets with her assistant Sandra to firm up the moving timeline. She’s already stressed about the money fraud case, now she has to tackle moving. She says, “That’s a lot of house to pack up!” Are we supposed to believe she’s not hiring movers?
Jessica Canseco (ex to Jose Canseco), Mayte Garcia (ex to Prince), and Andrea are heading to a single’s mixer. Mark is their matchmaker. Jessica thinks he’s cute. Blah, not really – she must have had a few drinks on the way to the bar.
Hollywood Exes follows the lives of five beautiful and talented women who once lived the high life, married to elite stars. Now, such a pity, they have to drive themselves and work to pay their mortgages. Surprisingly, the women are all down to earth and likable. For now. Only time will tell if they turn this nice refreshing show into a catty nightmare. Refreshing is nice, but I’m finding the show somewhat boring. Hopefully the story line finds a nice middle ground.
It’s official. Jessica Canseco is planning on moving her ex, Jose Canseco, back into her house. Because it worked so well for her the first time. And, in the many years since, he’s proven himself a changed man. Jessica is a hopeless romantic, idiot, all of the above…
She has very high expectations for this arrangement. Jessica plans on making Jose clean, cook, drive, and parent Josie. Basically, Jessica wants Jose to make up for the seven years he’s been MIA. Oh, Jessica. She’s delusional if she thinks Jose is looking for anything but a free ride and some action on the side. Even Jessica’s friends see Jose for what he is, a freeloading creep. Nicole Murphy thinks Jessica would be better off hiring help. Nicole is a wise woman.
Divorcing an A-lister is apparently very good for the bank account – particularly when there’s no prenup. Just ask Camille Grammer!
Celebrity Networth, the sometimes accurate but always amusing site, has just broken the bank on the ladies of Hollywood Exes. Some of them have made divorce a very lucrative business!
Nicole Murphy: Once married to funny man Eddie Murphy, Nicole is worth a cool $5M. Before becoming Mrs. Murphy and having five kids, Nicole was a model, actress, and singer; however the bulk of her income allegedly comes from the $15M lump sum divorce settlement she received.
Hollywood Exes on VH1 features Jessica Canseco (ex to Jose Conseco), Nicole Murphy (ex to Eddie Murphy), Andrea Kelly (ex to R. Kelly), Sheree Fletcher (ex to Will Smith), and Mayte Garcia (ex to Prince). They all have famous exes, but the show is about the these women living their lives as friends, moms, and business women.
Sheree Fletcher shows Andrea Kelly around LA. LA is a completely different world for Andrea, who recently moved there from Chicago. They start at the Sprinkles Cupcakes “ATM” machine. Andrea says, “Shut the door and check your email!” Andrea brings a ton of personality to this show. But I might have to start watching it with closed captioning, because 54% of the time I have no idea what she’s saying.
Not many people realize that R. Kelly was married to Andrea. Being a “phantom” took its toll on Andrea, she says.
VH1 follows the lives of five women who were once married to Hollywood A-listers on Hollywood Exes. VH1 sets up the show – “Simply put, these girls are starting over. They all divorced young and got married even younger, so now is when they need each other’s back the most. From raising kids to starting new businesses… these exes are ready to tackle a very busy year.” And they’re going to let us watch! Tonight’s premiere is mostly meet and greet.
Andrea Kelly was married to R. Kelly for 12 years. Unfortunate for all involved, R. Kelly was busted for peeing on a teenager during that time. They divorced in 2009. Andrea started as “Robert’s” (R. Kelly) choreographer. They no longer keep in touch. Andrea is moving to LA to spread her wings and open a dance studio. Andrea is wearing earrings as big as dessert plates. They’re making me hungry for cheesecake.
Andrea introduces us to Tony, her assistant, friend, and partner in crime. The name on his shirts suggests he also answer to “Slick.” Andrea is moving to LA ahead of her family. She’s very emotional. Andrea is best friends with Nicole Murphy.
Vh1 is about to unleash Hollywood Exes upon us. The show will follow the lives of five women once married to major Hollywood A-listers. Now that they’re no longer married to huge stars, the ex-wives are hitting up realty TV to resuscitate their images. Sadly, it probably won’t have the desired effects, but anyway, the drama on this show looks over the top and these girls are going the distance to get some attention!
Per VH1: “Simply put, these girls are starting over. They all divorced young and got married even younger so now is when they need each other’s backs the most. And from raising kids to starting up a new business … these women are ready to tackle a VERY busy year.”
“At a glance, all these girls are at a different phase in their relations with their exes. Some have remained friends while others can’t even say their names out loud, but either way, the girls have the support of each other to fall back on. These women aren’t exactly new acquaintances either. Some have known each other even before they were married so there is clearly a strong sisterhood within the group dynamic. ”
Hollywood Exes premieres Wednesday, June 27th at 9/8c on VH1
