TLC will soon start production on the new series STARTER WIVES (working title), revealing the fascinating and controversial world of celebrity ex-wives and ex-girlfriends. The series will share the lives of seven women who supported their former husbands/boyfriends before the fame and wealth made them the men they are today. They devoted their time, money, and support to the men they loved. Now, these women are working on moving forward and starting over on their own, with a new focus on creating a path in life that will give themselves and their children the security and success they know they deserve.

The cast includes:

· Zakia Baum: Ex-girlfriend of Jermaine "Maino" Coleman; mother of his son.

    From the network that brought you Honey Boo Boo....Joy Behar made a great point earlier this week on "The View". TLC stands for "The Learning Channel", so what are we learning? And by the way, Tashera probably still supports Earl financially.
