VH1 already has two successful Atlanta-based reality shows: “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” and “T.I. & Tiny.”

Enter No. 3: “Atlanta Exes,” featuring the exes of famous men. This is a spinoff of the original “Hollywood Exes.” It debuts this summer.

The five are:

- Monyetta Shaw (ex-fiance of Ne-Yo) She was engaged to him but they broke up abruptly last summer before the BET Awards, according to Straight From the A.  She’s dubbed an “author and businesswoman.”

- Tameka Raymond Foster  (ex-wife of Usher). She’s the biggest get on the show because her husband is a huge star and they’ve had a very public custody battle over the children. The press release touts her charity foundation.

- Christina Johnson (ex of Cee Lo Green) She had a son Kingston with Green in 2000. They divorced in 2005. She is described in the press release as an “interior decorator to the stars.”

- Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of Falcons star Ray Buchanan). She was on “The Amazing Race,” season four so she has some reality show experience. The press release says she “co-owns a dessert catering company and also has a business that specializes in creating custom bedazzled hookah pipes.”

- Torrei Hart (ex-wife of comedian Kevin Hart). She’s an actress with imdb credits thought nothing big. When I spoke with  Kevin Hart in 2012 while he promoted “Think Like a Man,” he referenced his ex thusly: “We’re both adults and we’ve matured a lot,” he said. “We’re not fighting over this and that. I didn’t walk away without taking care of her.” She recently told BuzzTV that he was good in bed, too.

Straight from the A broke the story last year about the reality show.

This ish is ridiculous and these women should be ashamed of themselves! If it turns into a bashing session of the exes, then it's that much worse. What about the children? When did people stop having shame??? Best wishes to Ne-Yo, Usher, Cee Lo, Ray, and Kevin! <-- not a fan of them all, but my heart goes out to 'em for sure....

VH1 Really you've done everything but bring Kiddy Porn to a show Oh wait you did the kids having babies(same thing), We don't want to see this and I'm black and we're sick of seeing just how gutter the stars live we see it play out on our local news here in Atlanta....And these marriages are suspect all those guys have been suspect(ed) of being Bi or Gay I think other than Kevin Hart and we don't know what he like, I don't put anything past anyone IJS

ATL is over-run with low level, uneducated folks, who have no real professions.  The entertainment element turned it into a city of hustlers like Los Angeles.  No surprise this type of show is popular and the front page of AJC online looks like a sad celebrity gossip blog.

Shows like this seem to be very popular here in ATL.  There are many thousands of people locally who are addicted to show like this one.  The madness will never stop...people apparently like this garbage.

I still can't believe people are interested in this kind of 'reality' drivel. Can we raise our standards please!

Useless, groping, money hungry, worthless females (who couldnt keep their relationships going) trying to live off their EX's hard work and success.  What a bunch of losers just like the rest of the reality people.  Only in America do you get famous and paid to do nothing.  When will the madness stop!

@cjamesatl Raise our standards?  We tried that for years and finally gave up: cf: Atlanta City Schools.
