LOS ANGELES, CA (June 4, 2012) - They kept the homes fires burning while their husbands were topping the music charts and setting box offices ablaze worldwide. But now, as Hollywood's A-List ex-wives, they must adjust their own courses without their former husbands and make a name for themselves in VH1's new series "Hollywood Exes," premiering Wednesday, June 27 at 9PM* with 10 one-hour episodes.

The series stars Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy - 13 years), Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco - 4 years), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith - 3 years), Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince - 3 years), and Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of R. Kelly - 12 years).

Hollywood ex-wives are part of an exclusive sorority whose members' lives seem to mirror that of a modern day Cinderella fairytale. But all the fame and fortune of marrying a celebrity may seem fun and glamorous at first, but it often comes with a price tag. Living in the shadow of your very famous husband can take its toll on your psyche when you feel second to his career.

These five women, who have all been friends for years and in some cases for as long as 20 years, want to show the world they are more than just a trophy wife with a pretty face. They want to establish themselves as independent, successful women and bring relevance and honor to themselves separate from their very famous exes... even if there is a little drama along the way.

"These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1. "Now these women must re-invent themselves again, stepping out of the long shadows cast by their famous husbands and supporting each other as they define the next stage of their lives - this time on their own terms."

"Hollywood Exes" is executive produced by Jen O'Connell, Nick Emmerson and Lisa Shannon and Lamar Damon are co-executive producers for Shed Media. Vernon Lynch and Jeff Dyson for Lynch-Dyson Entertainment also serve as executive producers. Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman and Jeff Olde are executive producers for VH1.
