These days, the intended goal of reality television producers is not to simply produce a successful reality show, but to build an entire franchise of successful reality shows. The latest “unscripted” television program to that is reportedly in the pre production phase of putting out a spin-off show is VH1′s Hollywood Exes.
According to a recent report by Star Magazine, the network is currently putting cast members in place for an Atlanta-based spin-off of the show, which documents the lives of women following divorces from their very famous husbands. Sources tell the publication that among the famous exes being courted for the show is Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster, and Cee Lo Green’s ex-wife, Christina Johnson. Word on the street is both of the men are a bit apprehensive about it.
“[Cee Lo] joked that his ex may spill some of his dirty secrets,” the insider said.
“Usher and Tameka don’t get along, and he knows she’ll be happy to talk about his personal life so that she can become the star of the show. Usher’s concerned because she’s still bitter. Tameka is having financial problems and feels like this could be her meal ticket.” the source added.
While I’m not a faithful viewer of Hollywood Exes, if these two ladies were added to the cast, I just may have to change that! Most of us are pretty well versed on Usher and Tameka’s tumultuous relationship, but Cee Lo Green’s saga is a little less known. The story of his marriage and divorce reportedly ends with arrests, domestic disputes, assault charges and broken Jaguar windows.
The spin-off has yet to be confirmed or denied by the network, but we will continue to keep you posted as this story develops.
Would you watch Hollywood Exes: Atlanta if Tameka and Christina joined the cast?
