The stars of VH1’s new reality series, “Hollywood Exes” are about to step out from the shadows of their famous former husbands and into the spotlight.
Four of the “Exes” stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, where they chatted about their new series with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of R. Kelly), who many were not even aware that she was the singer’s wife while they were married, has come to peace with her past hidden life with the R&B star.
“At the end of the day, that’s all right ‘cause who’s sitting on the couch, boo?” she told Billy and Kit, explaining that their relationship was kept private for their children. “I started as his choreographer and principal dancer, so we were friends.”
Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince) also started as a dancer to her famous ex.
“It was an amazing experience, [we were married] almost four years,” she said, explaining that she and Prince don’t speak much now. “All the ladies have children, we had one, but the child didn’t survive. We don’t really have much to communicate. If I see him I’ll say hi. We’ve moved on, I’ve moved on.”
Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith), who had a son, Trey, with the actor, explained that she is on good terms with her superstar husband and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
“We have a great relationship… Jada has been amazing, we call her bonus mom. She loves my kid. The marriage didn’t work, so [we decided], now we gotta move on… and be the best co-parents we could possibly be,” the reality TV mom said.
Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy) is also close with her star ex-husband.
”[We have] five kids. No regrets. We are very good friends,” she explained.” They are our priority now. “
The beauty is now dating former NFL player Michael Strahan, who she says Eddie has a good relationship with.
“He’s happy for me, he likes Michael,” she added.
“Hollywood Exes,” also starring Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco) debuts on June 27 on VH1 at 9 PM ET/PT.
