I think it’s safe to say that ex-wives have taken over the psuedo basketball wives trend in reality television. Though “Hollywood Exes” is currently the only running show featuring women who were actually married to famous men in the entertainment industry, we have already heard about half a dozen series that could be in the works, and Torrei Hart is definitely a part of one.
Torrei is the ex-wife of Kevin Hart who you’ve probably seen on YouTube doing all sorts of spoofs, like this one of Beyonce’s Super Bowl power outage. In the past, she has talked about being hurt that Kevin moved on to a new woman so fast after their divorce, but in a recent interview with The Jasmine Brand, Torrei insists she’s not bitter with Kevin or his new girlfriend, and talked about plans she has in store like a reality show. Check out what she had to say:
Onbeing a stay-at-home mom while Kevin’s career first took out
I always worked. When I got pregnant with my daughter I did stop working. I was always taking acting classes and sewing and doing the womanly things, but I wasn’t fulfilled with just staying at home and being focused solely on being a stay at home mom. It wasn’t enough for me. I know what God put in me and it wasn’t just enough for me to be a stay-at-home mom, but I do respect stay-at-moms because it is the toughest job ever in my opinion.
On whether she was bitter at all
I was a little resentful because I did see his career growing and I was there from the beginning and I was his muse for all of his early material, if you date back to when he first started because we were always together and I was always in his life. I got a little more resentful when I had my daughter because I wasn’t able to go as many places with him as I was able to before. I felt like he was distancing himself.
The status of their relationship now
Even going through the divorce, it got a little bitter but we still remained friendly. We would go through patches. Let a court date come up and that’s when it would get intense. I even tried to attack his attorney in court. She was good I was like, ‘Damn, she got to go down.’ I was trying to take her out. She was lying but she was good. And the funny thing is she is now my attorney…..We’re good friends. We had our ups and downs during the divorce. Right now we’re good at good parenting, were excellent actually at co-parenting, because he is working a lot, and when I work he comes and gets the kids and we just try to make it work. I wouldn’t want my kids to ever see us not getting along, or feel like ‘Okay, my parents can’t work it out.’ I feel like as long as you put the kids first, then you can do it and it does take time.
Her relationship with his girlfriend
We’re not enemies, but we’re not friends. I don’t feel like we can build the right type of relationship because there still something there. I’m not oppose to trying to build a better relationship with her, but I think it takes two to build a relationship.
Whether she is doing a reality TV show
I am. The producers of ‘Hollywood Exes,’ we’re working with them right now. We have the cast together, fingers crossed it looks like something will be happening very soon. The cast that we put together is a very good cast and its not going to be just like ‘Hollywood Exes’ in that vain. We’re not going to be fighting. It’s gonna be wives, some ex-wives, some big players in Hollywood, real estate money managing people. It’s definitely in that vain, but we’re bringing a whole different twist to it.
