Recap: "Hollywood Exes" Episode 2
Episode 2 of “Hollywood Exes” premiered tonight which leaves me all confused about the scheduling. Tonight was supposed to be the original premiere date of the series, however, Vh1 chose to premiere the series earlier this week and premiered episode 2 tonight. Whatever. Watching this show has only left me to cringe at some of these ladies and the things they say.
This episode seemed to have been focused more on Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince) and her desperateness. I must admit, I can’t relate, but my heart did go out to Mayte when she spoke about her losing her babies. Twice. That would be a hard thing to swallow for anybody. The fact that she can’t get over the fact that she is no longer married to Prince. Mayte is simply beautiful, so her coming on this show and being as pathetic as she is, is depressing. Her matchmaker is a B*TCH! Mayte for some reason, hired a matchmaker who comes into MAYTE’S residence and rudely tells Mayte, in not so many words, that Mayte should keep her mother in the back should she ever bring a man home.
Moving on, Jessica Canseco. She is a very beautiful girl, but there is something about her that is keeping me from liking her completely. She is very much like me: crazy, fun, outgoing… but I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe its because of that RACIST comment she said about black men towards the end of the episode?! “It’s because you are dating a black man… Black men don’t go down.” Ok, so it wasn’t as racist as it was misinformation, however her brazenness has left me to raise my eyebrows about Jessica.
In this episode, Jessica contemplates about whether or not she should move in with Jose Canseco because she’s debating if it would really be good for Josie. The other gals don’t think that it’s a good idea because they think Jose is just trying to get back with Jessica. NO!!!!! If he wanted Jessica, he would take her out on dates and woo her… he is BROKE! He needs shelter! He didn’t care about keeping his home together before this but now he does? Uh. No. He concocted this “move-in” plan in order to save his own a**!
The highlight of this episode for me (because it was overall boring) was Andrea Kelly. She is just so funny to me and full of life. If Vh1 decides to make a spin-off of this show, it definitely belongs to Andrea. She is spunky, tiny, yet FUN!
