Watch out, "Hollywood Exes" -- there's a new batch of former celebrity spouses getting their own show. TLC has started production on "Starter Wives" (working title), a four episode series following the lives of ex-wives and ex-girlfriends of the rich and famous.
The cast of "Starter Wives" includes:
Zakia Baum: Ex-girlfriend of Jermaine “Maino” Coleman and mother of his son.
Cheryl Caruso: Ex-wife of mobster Phillip Caruso and mother of his two daughters.
Josie Harris: Ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather and mother of his three children.
Monica Joseph-Taylor: soon to be ex-wife of Aston “Funkmaster Flex” Taylor and mother to his two children.
Liza Morales: Ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom and mother of his three children.
Tashera Simmons: Ex-wife of Earl “DMX” Simmons and mother of four of his children.
Shaniqua Tompkins: Ex-girlfriend of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and mother of his son.
TLC describes the series as a look into the "fascinating" and "controversial" world of celebrity exes. The series will follow the women as they move forward from their broken relationships and create a "path in life that will give themselves and their children the security and success they know they deserve." The series is set to debut in 2013.
Meanwhile, VH1's familiarly themed "Hollywood Exes," which will return for a second season, follows a group of exes as they "adjust their own courses without their former husbands and make a name for themselves."
