VH1 has officially renewed “Hollywood Exes” for a second season, and confirmed rumors that Daphne Wayans will be joining the show when it airs in 2013.
Wayans is the ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans — and had sparked casting rumors after being spotted out with several of the “Hollywood Exes” cast over the summer.
The series follows the lives of Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy), Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince), Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith) and Andrea “Drea” Kelly (ex-wife of R. Kelly) — who are all slated to return. Season 1 wrapped in August, and the network cites the show’s positivity and “the sisterhood of the ‘Hollywood Exes'” (as well as its positive ratings) as easy logic for a renewal.
In addition to the “Hollywood Exes” news, Murphy is surely celebrating another big TV deal: Her fiance, Michael Strahan, has joined “Live! With Kelly” as permanent co-host.
