Nothing makes for better reality television than a bunch of jaded exes. At least that was the thought process behind VH1’s newest brainchild, Atlanta Exes.
VH1’s roster already includes an ex-related reality show called Hollywood Exes. The ex-wives club already includes Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith), Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of R-Kelly) and a handful of others. They will expand their cast this year to include Shanna Moakler (ex-wife of Travis Barker of Blink-182).
But things will be heating up in the south when the jaded ex-wives of southern stars take the screen in Atlanta Exes. The cast includes Monyetta Shaw (ex-fiancee of Ne-Yo), Tameka Raymond (ex-wife of Usher), Christina Johnson (ex-wife of CeeLo Green), Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of football star Ray Buchanan), and Torrei Hart (ex-wife of Kevin Hart).
“Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the ‘Exes’ brand down South was a natural evolution for VH1,” says Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming & Production for VH1. “This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene, and we look forward to giving our viewers a look into their unique world.”
Hollywood Exes returns for a season three premiere on April 30 at 9 p.m. while Atlanta Exes will make a summer 2014 debut.
