VH1 has ordered a new reality series show that will, among other ex’s, follow the former wife of R. Kelly, Andrea Kelly.
The tentative title of the reality show is “Hollywood Exes” and also feature Nicole Murphy, ex-wife of Eddie Murphy, Jessica Canseco, ex-wife of Jose Canseco, Sheree Fletcher, ex-wife of Will Smith, and Mayte Garcia, ex-wife of Prince.
The show will follow the ex-wives of celebrities who now have to adjust to life without their famous husbands.
“These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1. “Now these women must re-invent themselves again, stepping out of the long shadows cast by their famous husbands and supporting each other as they define the next stage of their lives — this time on their own terms.”
The new reality show is scheduled to begin airing this summer.
Andrea was a former backup dancer of R. Kelly’s and the two married in 1996, and later divorced in 2009. During the marriage a sex tape came out showing Kelly having sex with, and urinating on an underage girl. The couple had to deal with a myriad of different legal issues for several years stemming from the tape.
