Starter Wives

“Starter Wives Confidential” Cast Talk Past Relationships With DMX, Floyd Mayweather, Maino, and Funk Master Flex

(AllHipHop News) Last night (January 24), TLC hosted an intimate press screening of their upcoming docu-series “Starter Wives Confidential” at the INC Lounge in Times Square, in the heart of New York City.

The “Starter Wives Confidential” reality television show gives viewers a glimpse into the fascinating and complicated lives of celebrity ex’s.

At the screening cast members Josie Harris (ex-fiance of Floyd Mayweather), Liza Morales (ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom), Tashera Simmons (ex-wife of DMX), Monica Joseph-Taylor (ex-wife of Funkmaster Flex), Zakia Baum (ex-girlfriend of Maino), and Cheryl Caruso (ex-wife of Phil Caruso) participated in a post-screening Q&A, moderated by model/actress Liris Crosse.

During the press screening, DMX’s ex-wife explained how she had recently moved on from her relationship with the multi-platinum and at times troubled rapper.

“I was 100% mother and wife,” DMX’s ex-wife Tashera revealed. “When I love, I love hard. [DMX] was great at what he did – which was cheating – but I’m happy as hell now. I’ve found someone very special in my life.”

The wives also break down how they spent years in the shadows of their men, while supporting them emotionally and sometimes even financially, as they rose to fame.

The show  divulges into the “starter wives” lives  as they attempt to show how they raised the children, kept the homes and stood by their men through it all despite the fact that in the end the relationship’s soured. 

TLC’s new show also attempts to show how the women were left to start over and figure out how to get along with their famous lovers well enough to raise children together.

“Starter Wives Confidential” premieres Tuesday, January 29 at 19:00 pm EST on TLC, which is available in more than 99 million homes in the US and more than 227 million households in nearly 150 markets internationally.
