With the spin-off of Hollywood Exes due to premiere on August 18th on VH1, many loyal fans of the reality series are wondering if Atlanta Exes will compare. The new series is promised to be more dramatic than Hollywood Exes. All the women were linked to their famous Atlanta beaus. The show will feature Monyetta Shaw, Torrei Hart, Sheree Buchanan, Christina Johnson, and Tameka Raymond continue their lives as single women, raising children and trying to cope with their recent break-ups.
Atlanta Exes is sure to touch the lives of many as these women struggle to succeed without their A-List men by their sides. Many of them are successful, but have a difficult time coping without their exes. In particular, Tameka Raymond is learning to cope without her ex-husband Usher Raymond, as well as her son Kile who died last year. Tameka is spending much of her time with a charity foundation in honor of her son Kile.
Christina Johnson and CeeLo Green are the most amicable with each other. Although the pair called it quits in 2004, Christina still asks CeeLo for his opinions, which oddly enough includes dating advice. CeeLo continues to shower Christina with gifts and only wishes her the best.
Like CeeLo, Ne-Yo also wishes his ex-fiancé, Monyetta the best and even announced her place on the show and encouraged people to watch it. This came as a surprise considering he announced the end of their engagement on social media.
While, some of the women have amicable friendships with their exes, a few of them can hardly get along at all. America knows of the struggles and angst that Tameka harbors towards Usher. She is eagerly waiting to share her side of the story when it comes to her relationship with her ex-husband. She is hoping that the viewers will finally understand her and everything she went through during her marriage to the R&B sensation.
As the show airs, viewers are sure to see a lot of tears, fights and laughter as the women go about their lives raising children, juggling careers, and still having to deal with their recent exes. Atlanta Exes is sure to carry more intensity as all of the wives on this show are very recently linked to their exes, whereas Hollywood Exes‘ wives have all been separated from their A-list men long enough to have healed a bit.
The five single women will surely put on a show and even though it is the reality of their lives that viewers will be watching, many are sure to learn a lot from these strong women. As they tackle everyday triumphs and try hard to overcome the hurt they feel, life must go on and they do the best they can to mend the broken pieces for themselves and their families.
