(CNN) — From “Real Housewives” and “Mob Wives” to “Sister Wives” and “Basketball Wives,” there’s an entire genre of reality TV dedicated to better halves.

But it looks like the ex-wives are finally ready for their 15 minutes time in the spotlight.

They’ll soon be featured on VH1 (five of them, anyway) as “Hollywood Exes” premieres this summer.

The show, with 10 one-hour episodes, is set to star Nicole Murphy (Eddie Murphy’s ex), Jessica Canseco (Jose Canseco’s ex), Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith’s ex), Mayte Garcia (Prince’s ex) and Andrea Kelly (R. Kelly’s ex).

The women involved have been friends for years, VH1 writes in a press release, adding, “Hollywood ex-wives are part of an exclusive sorority.”

“All the fame and fortune of marrying a celebrity may seem fun and glamorous at first, but it often comes with a price tag,” the release says. “Living in the shadow of your very famous husband can take its toll on your psyche when feel you are second to his career.”
