The new Vh1 show Hollywood Exes is kind of like The First Wives Club meets The Real Housewives. Five women who are all divorced from famous men meet up in LA for general reality show fare. The five women are Mayte Garcia (who was married to Prince and engaged to Tommy Lee), Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy, now engaged to Michael Strahan), Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of Robert Kelly), Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco), and – the person who is most relevant to this blog right now, Sheree Fletcher.
Sheree was married to Will Smith for a few years and is the mother of his oldest son, Trey, who is now 19. They have a good relationship, and she’s now remarried to Terrell Fletcher, a former football star who is now a pastor. Because she’s a pastor’s wife and doesn’t drink or smoke, Sheree has become the unofficial mom of the group. She also insists on leading a prayer before meals and occasionally witnessing to the other Exes. In particular, Sheree has set her sights on Jessica. Jessica is somewhat of a wild child – she drinks, doffs her clothes, talks about hooking up and experimenting sexually, and even got a vaginal rejuvenation procedure on camera in the pilot episode. In last week’s episode, after Jessica talked about her experience hooking up with a woman, Sheree shook her head and said, “Jessica needs Jesus.” Considering that the previews show a future episode where Jessica runs around topless, I’m not sure that storyline will go anywhere. But I’ll be watching, obviously.
