Over the summer we told you that VH1 would be expanding their “Hollywood Exes” series with new spin-off, “Atlanta Exes,” starring Torrie Hart, Tameka Raymond, Christina Johnson (ex-wife of Cee Lo Green) and a few others. VH1 recent confirmed the series in a press release
and from the looks of it, “Atlanta Exes” will definitely be a series worth watching.
“This summer, VH1′s ‘Hollywood Exes’ sorority will charter a new chapter in ‘The ATL’ with the premiere of ‘Atlanta Exes,’” the press release reads. “As the thriving music and entertainment capital of the South, Atlanta provides the ideal backdrop and group of ex-wives for the franchise’s extension. The cast, featuring the once significant others of an elite list of A-list men, has no shortage of fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.”
In addition to Tameka, Christina and Torrei, the cast will also include Monyetta Shaw (Ne-Yo’s ex-fiancée) and Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of Ray Buchanan).
“‘Atlanta Exes’ stars Tameka Raymond, who once enjoyed the perks and privileges that come with being married to an international music superstar, and now dedicates much of her time to the charitable foundation she started in memory of her late son Kile, interior designer to the stars Christina Johnson (ex-wife of Cee-Lo Green), and author and businesswoman Monyetta Shaw (ex-fiancé of Ne-Yo), who is busy penning a children’s book series based on the lively personality of her toddler. Also starring are entrepreneur Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of former pro football player Ray Buchanan), who co-owns a dessert catering company and also has a business that specializes in creating custom bedazzled hookah pipes, and actress, comedian, and producer Torrei Hart (ex-wife of Kevin Hart).”
“Atlanta Exes” is scheduled to premiere summer 2014.
“It is exciting that the continued success of ‘Hollywood Exes’has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” said Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming & Production, VH1. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the ‘Exes’ brand down South was a natural evolution 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.”
“We are thrilled that ‘Hollywood Exes’ has found a loyal audience, and optimistic that the Atlanta series will do the same,” added Pamela Healey, General Manager, Shed Media US. ”These are strong, successful women living very glamorous lives, with an entry point all of us can relate to – and answering the age-old question: what becomes of the broken-hearted.”
