What’s Our World Saying about VH1’s Atlanta Exes?
Ever since the debut of the supertrailer for VH1’s Atlanta Exes last week, the show has become the talk of our world. Watch out ATL! Here comes another group of black “housewives” taking on your local reality TV scene. The series is an Atlanta spin-off version of the VH1 reality show Hollywood Exes.
Yet, Atlanta Exes comes with its own flavor and local flare. There’s southern passion, and of course ATL fashion. There’s ex-wives with new strives. Then, of course, there’s anger tears, along with sadness and jeers. And, surely you didn’t think a group of Atlanta Goddesses would have a new reality show without the usual fighting over pet peeves, and the pulling of fake hair weaves.

But, deep down under all the reality drama of Atlanta Exes, you’ll find real women, with real issues, values, dreams, loves and lots of virgin hair extensions. Lol. So, who are the five ladies set to add even more Goddess drama to the VH1 screen on August 18?
- Christina Johnson – Ex-Wife of Southern Hip Hop Artist, Goodie Mob Group Member, and Former The Voice Judge and Coach, CeeLo Green

No Shortage of Heart-Wrenching Issues
Okay, we can all take a wild guess what these five women have in common… well, the obvious things:
- All Women of Color
- All Live in Atlanta
- All are Exes to High-Profile Men
But, there’s one Goddess whose story stands out on this new reality TV show, and that’s the ex-Mrs. Usher, Tameka. In the Atlanta Exes trailer below, it’s obvious that we’ll all get to watch this strong woman heal from much more than just her divorce. Back in 2012, her son with Usher, Kile Glover, died after a tragic accident.
Then, there’s some other serious issues that the Goddesses of Atlanta Exes deal with on-screen:
- Monyetta can no longer have kids, which seems to be an issue for her.
- Christina deals with dating with an ex who thinks it’s his job to approve each guy.
- Torrei has a problem with being taken seriously after years of being married to comedian.
- Sheree struggles with her ex’s new wife getting close to her kids.
So, What are Our Sistahs Saying about Atlanta Exes?
Fashion and Style, an online magazine dedicated to affordable fashion and celebrity style, is calling Atlanta Exes “new beginnings” for the new reality show goddesses. One of its authors posted:
“And that’s exactly what the cast of “Atlanta Exes” will find as they go about creating a sisterhood filled with some of the entertainment industries elite’s ex-wives.”
Essenceis anxiously waiting on the soon-to-come swarm of tweets and posts on social media. Author Yolanda Sangweni posted:
“Well, unlike other shows, at least these women had significant relationships, and children, with these famous men. Will you be tuning in, or tuning out?”
The Jasmine Brandnoted some quick observations from the reality TV gossip she’s seen and heard:
“Torrei seems to be one of the more vocal cast members. She and Tameka have some issues that play out, but are later resolved. ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s’DJ Traci Steele, makes a few cameo appearances and also has conflict with Tameka, almost resulting in a physical altercation.”
