Sheree Fletcher, the mother of Will Smith's first son who was previously married to the actor before exchanging nuptials with NFL-player-turned minister Terrell Fletcher, will appear on a new reality show with other ex-wives of high profile entertainers.
Fletcher will appear with the ex-wives of R. Kelly, Prince, Eddie Murphy, and Jose Canseco in the primetime VH1 reality show titled "Hollywood Exes." Nicole Murphy, Jessica Canseco, Mayte Garcia and Andrea Kelly will star alongside Fletcher in 10 one-hour episodes that will premiere during the summer of 2012, according to a VH1 press release.
"Hollywood Exes" will follow the other women and Fletcher, who now serves as first lady of the City of Hope International Church in San Diego, Calif., where her husband serves as senior pastor, as they try to make a name for themselves without their high-profile ex-spouses.
"They kept the homes fires burning while their husbands were topping the music charts and setting box offices ablaze worldwide," the VH1's official press release reads. "But now, as Hollywood's A-List ex-wives, they must adjust their own courses without their former husbands and make a name for themselves in VH1′s new series 'Hollywood Exes' (working title)."
Fletcher, who is the director of WOW! Women on the Wall Ministries under her preacher husband while maintaining her own skin care line, has shared her testimony through different mediums in the past.
"Lady Sheree enjoys sharing her testimony and God's word at conferences, worship services, talk shows and other venues that extend across the United States," the City of Hope International website states. "Through all she has endured Lady Sheree is excited about her call more than ever!"
Although VH1 offers other reality television shows that seemingly promote violence and anger among women, such as "Basketball Wives," it seems Fletcher has a different idea for the series she will star in. After an announcement was made about the show on Twitter, Fletcher re-tweeted before tweeting that she is excited for her new opportunity.
"Exciting new ventures and celebrating with good/God friends," Fletcher tweeted.
Unlike VH1's other reality television shows focusing on the ex-spouses of celebrities, the upcoming show will feature women who are focusing on their careers. Murphy is a former model and mother of five of Eddie's children; Canseco has authored a tell-all memoir that includes life with the MLB star and remarried a plastic surgeon; Garcia has been acting since breaking up with Prince; and Kelly, who formerly danced for ex-husband Robert, is focusing on her fitness classes and clothing line.
However, Fletcher tweeted that she is happy to engage in prayer instead of drama with the women surrounding her.
"Grateful for women that can get a prayer through to the heavens and who have a heart for (vs a 'hate' for) other women," Fletcher tweeted.
