You may have heard by now that there’s yet another reality show brewing in Atlanta.
Well word on the curb is that this one will be a spin-off of “Hollywood Exes” and there has been talk of several well known Atlanta “Exes” joining the cast.
Bump what you’ve heard from everywhere else, here’s the real tea on the ex-wives you may be seeing on the small screen and you may be surprised to see who’s on the list!
Exclusive details about ‘Hollywood Exes’ Atlanta dream team below…
Tameka Raymond and Sheree Buchanan strike a pose…
After a little digging and a few phone calls, I found out the full list of “Atlanta” Hollywood Exes being woo’d for the show. The total list of ladies includes the following:
Sheree Buchanan (Ex-wife of former Falcons player Ray Buchanan), Christina Johnson (Ex Wife of Cee-Lo Green), Tameka Foster Raymond (Ex-Wife of Usher Raymond), Kim Elba (Ex-wife of Idris Elba), Monica Ambrose (ex-wife of Ashley Ambrose, a former NFL baller who played for several teams including the Atlanta Falcons) and Monyetta Shaw (Ex Fiance’ of Ne-Yo).
Contrary to popular belief, all of the ladies listed are in Atlanta and their social lives have all crossed paths at some point in time.
The BFF’s aren’t strangers to reality television, having once competed together as a team on ‘The Amazing Race.”
Their stint on the show was cut short after they were eliminated in the 6th round of the reality competition.
Kim Elba (ex-wife of actor Idris Elba) is a well-known Atlanta make-up artist in Atlanta. Elba has and an 11-year-old daughter, Isan, that she shares with her ex.
The couple’s domestic violence issues were revealed in a star magazine article, which detailed an incident where Green was arrested.
In 2002 Christina described her husband as “a really good man with a sweet heart,” but their marriage of four years eventually fell apart and she filed for divorce in 2004, claiming “mental and physical cruelty.”
Christina asked for sole physical custody of their son, Kingston, and CeeLo agreed and was awarded visitations, but only “upon completion of a psychiatric evaluation.”
Monyetta Shaw is hot and heavy on the Atlanta social scene, and while she may not have been married to singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, but she was engaged and the mother of his two young kids, Maddie and Mason.
Shaw was recently in the news after Ne-Yo abruptly broke up with her by posting a message on Instagram (click HERE if you missed that).
Having suffered through a very public and bitter divorce just two years prior, Raymond battled her ex-husband in court for months over child custody issues. Details were brought up throughout the trail about Usher’s philandering ways (including his sexual escapades with one of Tameka’s Bridesmaids) as well as Tameka’s spending habits, but nothing was proven that her mothering skills were an issue.
We never really heard Tameka’s side of the story, besides those random snippets on Entertainment Tonight Usher spoke publicly about the situation with Oprah Winfrey, who interviewed the singer at length about details of the case.
While the superstar singer admitted to Queen O that he wasn’t the perfect husband, he said he’d be the perfect father… with the help of his nanny… who he fired soon after the trial ended … who (coincidentally) is suing him for unpaid wages.
But I digress.
After questions were raised about the judge’s financial relationship to Usher’s attorney, she stepped down from the case (click HERE if you missed that) and Tameka reportedly plans to appeal the judge’s decision.
Will Tameka finally spill all that good Usher dirt we’ve been waiting to hear? Only time will tell…
For the record the ink isn’t even dry on the contracts for all of the ladies, the Atlanta spin-off of Hollywood Exes is definitely in the works.
