Hollywood Exes may have began filming and even premiered last month but that hasn’t stopped VH1 from adding to its cast. The newest member is comedian and entrepreneur Keenan Ivory Wayans ex-wife Daphne Wayans.
Daphne Wayans, ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans, has joined the cast of the hit show, according to TMZ. She was seen out with her soon-to-be costars and the women seemed to get along very well. She was married to Wayans from 2001 to 2004 and the divorce was famously messy with Daphne being surprised after coming home and seeing all of her belongings gone and her utilities turned off.
If she is added to the show, she will be joining existing cast members Andrea Kelly, Nicole Murphy, Mayte Garcia, Jessica Canseco and Sheree Fletcher, who were married to R. Kelly, Eddie Murphy, Prince, Jose Canseco and Will Smith, respectively. According to Starcasm, there will be two other women added to the cast as well, Tracey Edmonds, former wife of Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and ex-girlfriend of Eddie Murphy, and rapper Sandra “Pepa” Denton. The show currently airs every Wednesday on VH1.
Even though Hollywood Exes is a bit classier than some of its reality show peers (like Basketball Wives, for instance), the two new cast members are curious, since both of these women, Tracey Edmonds and Pepa Denton, have had enormously successful careers themselves—Pepa obviously as half of an iconic rap group and Edmonds as an award-winning producer of such films as Jumping the Broom, Good Luck Chuck, Soul Food (movie and television series), Light It Up and the College Hill reality show.
As for Wayans, there has been no word from Keenan’s camp about his ex-wife’s new endeavor.
