Another hit reality show for VH1 with black women at the center (well, some of them anyway); and don't say you're not watching, because, clearly, a lot of you are - 1.5 million of you on average.

And another ex-wife joins the existing team - Daphne Wayans, once married to Keenan Ivory Wayans.

I guess I have to do my duty and catch up with the series. Thanks guys!

Details in the press release below:

Daphne Wayans Joins Cast as Newest Member of the Real Ex-Wives Club Featuring Nicole Murphy, Jessica Canseco, Sheree Fletcher, Mayte Garcia and Andrea Kelly

NEW YORK (September 12, 2012) – VH1 has greenlit a second season of the hit docu-drama series, “Hollywood Exes.” The network’s most famous A-list exes were a hit with VH1 viewers this season averaging 1.5 million viewers during premiere plus first encore each Wednesday night. Additionally, the “Hollywood Exes” have helped carve out Wednesday as a new must-see night for VH1 viewers: Wednesday’s ratings for the network are up +108% from the same time period last year. The second season of “Hollywood Exes” is set to premiere in 2013.

“Our viewers fell in love with the sisterhood of the ‘Hollywood Exes.’ Their friendship, humor and common experience of crafting their next chapter in life made it a must-watch show for our audience,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Production, VH1. “We’re extremely pleased to give VH1 viewers another great season with a gorgeous cast of strong women our audience loves to spend time with.”

Kelly), and newcomer Daphne Wayans (ex-wife of Keenan Ivory Wayans). Wayans was married to actor/comedian Keenan Ivory Wayans for four years and has five children with him. Longtime friend of Nicole and Sheree, Daphne will join the rest of the ladies as they continue to step out of the long shadows cast by their famous exes and support each other on the next stages of their lives.

    I only saw the first episode and a half of the first season. I was drawn to the show because the show was marketed as one that would be entertaining without all of the violence amongst women. I bet Daphne Wayans has some interesting stories to tell. The question is, will she actually tell those stories?

    Women of color at center.

    I hope we get to see Andrea dance this season. I was really looking forward to seeing that before she got injured.
