Is Hollywood Exes in danger of being canceled?

It may not be the most uplifting show around, but unlike its other Wives counterparts, VH1’s Hollywood Exes lacks the drama, bad behavior, and fights associated with other shows.  It also apparently lacks the ratings.

According to a tweet by cast mate and R. Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, if fans want to see a second season of the show, they’ll need to tune in.

Although many viewers have been clamoring for more positive on-screen depictions, Hollywood Exes’ struggles may signal to producers that folks just aren’t ready to go drama-free. But something else could also be at work.

I’ve never watched an entire episode of Hollywood Exes, the concept doesn’t interest me, but instead of trying to sell yet another reality show where women are behaving badly, TV producers should focus on crafting an interesting show with characters (or people) that not on have depth, but are relatable in some way.

The success Scandal proves that well-written dramas featuring black women can be popular, but showrunners have to stop trying to be cheap and maximize profits with trashy shows and start producing content people will actually appreciate.

Do you watch ‘Hollywood Exes’? What do you think of the show?

    I think the show has just enough drama. I am sick of the cursing and violence of some of the other shows. The beauty, clothing, hair styles and day to day struggles of having once had it all is extremely insiteful and encouraging. Bring it back !!!!

    This show can go. I stayed annoyed that no one details their divorces. For example, detail months, events, day of divorce decision, etc. Not one of these ladies should divorce. They were the very best for their men. At least talk about Prince’s epilepsy to explain the death of his children. Drea can have her own show though N. 2 Husband reeked of man desperation. His crinkled hair is a RUN red flag.
