Ready For Hollywood Exes 2.0? TLC Releases Trailer For New Reality Show ‘Starter Wives Confidential’

January 16, 2013  |  

In case you were in need of another reality show to add to your rotation, TLC recently dropped a trailer for its upcoming reality show Starter Wives Confidential. If you recall, back in September we told you guys that the production of a show starring the exes of some entertainers whom most of us were quite familiar with was in the works. The show’s cast was said to include:

Zakia Baum: Ex-girlfriend of Jermaine “Maino” Coleman and mother of his son.

Cheryl Caruso: Ex-wife of mobster Phillip Caruso and mother of his two daughters.

Josie Harris: Ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather and mother of his three children.

Monica Joseph-Taylor: soon to be ex-wife of Aston “Funkmaster Flex” Taylor and mother to his two children.

Tashera Simmons: Ex-wife of Earl “DMX” Simmons and mother of four of his children.

Liza Morales: Ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom and mother of his three children.

Shaniqua Tompkins: Ex-girlfriend of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and mother of his son.

The trailer depicts the women forming some sort of emotional support group as they bond over the struggles of single motherhood. Many seemed somewhat opposed to the show for pretty obvious and understandable reasons. We all realize that we don’t need another show depicting women in a negative light. Call me an optimist, but judging by the trailer, the show doesn’t look like it will necessarily fit into the drink-throwing, ratchet reality television mold that we’re used to. There appears to be a teeny tiny chance that it may go in a different direction.

Somewhere deep down inside, I’m hoping that this particular show will rise above current reality television standard and bring forth something positive. I’m hoping that instead of resorting to cattiness and bickering with one another after a couple of episodes, the ladies will rally around each other and positively represent single mothers. But again, this is reality television we’re talking about and I could be overly optimistic.

The show will premiere Tuesday, January 29th at 10 pm EST.

Check out the trailer on the next page and judge for yourselves. Will Starter Wives Confidential just be another ratchet reality show that negatively depicts Black women?

    • IllyPhilly

      Very much so.

  • No, thank you!! If all these years later you are still identifying yourself as someone’s ex- this or baby mama, you need help!! Get something of your own!!


    Is that 50 cent in a wig?!?

    I wish people would stop watching these shows. These producers (more than likely are white) will tell you from the start it will be not fighting until the ratings are low. They they offer them more money and tell them they need to get the ratings up, sadly people fall for it. And then BAM! the fighting, cussing starts and the networks are laughing their way to the bank.

      I don’t have cable and I have to tell you, I feel so free! if I want to watch tv, I either have to watch sitcoms or reruns of Law & Order (which I love btw). Some of the shows I ignored when I had cable are hilarious! I’m so over reality tv is not even funny. Plus, the drama I see at work can give BBW a run for their money.

    • I hope so!!
