NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2012 -- VH1 has greenlit a second season of the hit docu-drama series, "Hollywood Exes." The network's most famous A-list exes were a hit with VH1 viewers this season averaging 1.5 million viewers during premiere plus first encore each Wednesday night.

The second season of "Hollywood Exes" is set to premiere in 2013.

Their friendship, humor and common experience of crafting their next chapter in life made it a must-watch show for our audience," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Production, VH1. "We're extremely pleased to give VH1 viewers another great season with a gorgeous cast of strong women our audience loves to spend time with."

Kelly), and newcomer Daphne Wayans (ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans). Wayans was married to actor/comedian Keenan Ivory Wayans for four years and has five children with him. Longtime friend of Nicole and Sheree, Daphne will join the rest of the ladies as they continue to step out of the long shadows cast by their famous exes and support each other on the next stages of their lives.

"Hollywood Exes" is executive produced by Jen O'Connell and Nick Emmerson, Lisa Shannon and Lamar Damon are co-executive producers for Shed Media.
