Starter Wives Yanked Off the Air


Well that didn't last long.

Starter Wives Confidential, the reality show featuring the ex wives and girlfriends of DMX, 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather, Lamar Odom and Funk Master Flex has been pulled off the air after only three episodes...

Apparently the trouble started after 50 Cent successfully sued to keep footage containing his baby mama, Shaniqua Tompkins, off the air.

In a post on her blog Funk Master Flex's estranged wife Monica Joseph-Taylor hinted that their show had been shut down by their powerful exes to keep from being exposed.

A more logical reason?  Nobody was watching.

I'd rather watch Honey Boo Boo Child than these losers. Flex's wife was a bore

Thank Goodness, we do not need another show about Shanequa & em to already give the white ppl another thing to laugh at. Do you guys know how we look to them when we enforce their views of angry, single, miserable black women who no mans wants, with multiple children & no daddy in sight...yeah so good move TLC...Black ppl at their worse

I hated Maino's ex from the jump. She was a mess and her eyes used to piss me off. Flex's ex was bitter and dumb as fuck. DMX and Lamar's exes were the only likeable one. Floyd Mayweather's bm was a trash azz fat hoe,he doesn't want you because you let yourself go. She's dumb as hell,he's in top shape,what makes you think he wants you. His need for a trophy boo that people would want outweighs the amount of children you gave him,the years you've known him,and it even outweighs your big ole ass.

Damn! I was just getting into this show...mainly for Tarsha, DMX's ex. Wow. It was a fun show. Maybe it should have aired on VH1 or BRAVO.

They were all sad. Why did they sign up for a show that made them look so pitiful. Flex's wife was the biggest name dropper. Never heard of her blog.

Nobody was watching this show. Aint no exes do nothing to shut this down. Takira still crying about DMX 15 years later. All these chicks crying about situations from 10 years ago. And to maino chick....maino aint even mainstream so I couldn't understand why she was even on the show to begin with, crazy ho.

I sat thru 2 episodes and that was more than enough. The same for that big rich Atlanta bs. They can pull that one too. You have a bunch of thristy old bitches who think having $20g's in the bank is rich. When Sharlinda Parker (Q from 112's basic bitch) said "we got money," I knew I'd never watch another episode.

Ho, you have a nail salon and he's selling calendars on twitter. Please spare the antics. You're probably doing ok, but aren't rich by any stretch of the imagination. Stop with these dumb ass shows.

I love how all these women, from one show to next, want to be independent and start their own business, it's always a fashion line, jewelry, a blog, etc. It's never, oh, I'm going back to finish law school or back to being a nurse. It's like they're so busy tryna convince us they're part of the in crowd and hot social scene.

I like Tashera, I hope she goes on to do bigger and better things.

I think people should stop making tell your business and monkey shine tv. There are so many everyday people and celebrities that are doing some really good sh!t that we should be seeing. I was motivated when I started watching the income property shows. I joined a program and I just closed on my third rental property. Why can't they make more shows geered towards helping people get this money? Im tired of non married housewives, bitter ex jumpoffs, drinking wine fighting and shopping displaying pure ignorance.

I didn't watch after the first episode. It was sad. Monica was trying to make us feel sorry for her and make us think her blog was awesome. The chick that had beef with Lil Kim was the saddest. Kim ain't studdin her

i expected this show to generate a lot of sympathy for the ex-husbands...

Skylah: Still not the best representation of women of color, but I think they're honesty and truth got under their exes skin. Your ex doesn't want his current beau to hear how you were still dealing with him or love him and hoping to get back together. Out of all the empty minded shows on TLC I'm surprised they'll stop airing it. But it doesn't do any harm. Their last aired show, summed up so much, and the de-cluttering they helped Tashanda(?) with was brutal. All the best to them. Guess the antics was too much.

DMX's wife needs her own show, getting herself up on her feet. Her story was the only one I was really following. I laughed at Josie because I couldn't imagine her and Mayweather together. He seems so high energy and her slow-talking with her eyes closed was driving ME nuts. Odom's wife reminds me of a heavier Emily B from L&HH.

I watched the show and starting to get into it a little bit. People talk about shows about people talking their business, duh...that's what reality tv is. Fifty Cent, Lamar Odom, Funkmaster FleX & Floyd Mayweather are all assholes, who doesn't know that and DMX, it goes without saying that he ain't shit. When these MF's want an opportunity to dog these women it A-OK. But when the women find a vehicle to express their feelings, these punk ass, insecure negroes want to shut them down. I for one think that TLC IS JUST AS PUNK ASS AS THESE NIGGAZ. GET SOME BALLS TLC.

@12:23 If they pull off all of the Reality TV crap on TV, all you'll be watching is reruns and game shows. Let's face it, most of today's television programmers are village idiots who don't even know where to begin when it comes to creating or selecting quality programming. With the world's intellect deteriorating faster than the speed of light, most people can't comprehend anything else. The same mofos who talk shit about reality tv are tuning into Real Housewives of Atlanta every single week without fail. That show is no different than this show except that they had husbands with more money and influence than they had. PERIOD! Those jokers don't want their dirty laundry aired. Especially 50. We all know how grimy that nigga can't get. Lamar ditched his woman right after she lost his child and Khloe can't even give him one. Flex had a baby outside of his marriage, and you saw how Floyd Mayweather played Chili on her show. DMX is just a lost cause. Who the fuck in Maino???? I think these women never had a chance. So what if they weren't doctors and lawyers. How many doctors and lawyers are on this website? Not many I would imagine. I think at the very least they should have been able to get their 13 episodes like every other show.

Take that Big Rich Atlanta shit off because there's so much peroxide on that show that it's blinding. And even the women with money are dumb as dirt. But their show will get a chance because the majority of the women on there are caucasian. TLC is run by a bunch of scary ass punks and that's why one show will stay and the other one has to go.

I think the show would of been good to watch. As we would of seen what goodness would of come from all of these woman.There success and everything Lamar ex is is nice to know that she is still keeping the famliy life toghter with there Grandma.Sometimes men in general dont want to see a woman become strong after they have finshed with them.What is in the dark will always come out.They need Jesus and they should do right by these ladys no matter what don't bite the hand that feeds you.As one day they might need them.The program was real and sometimes in life people dont want to here the truth.So the men who had these ladys first do right by them and then you will what will come of this.Peace all
