‘Starter Wives Confidential’ Cast Attends Viewing Party


The upcoming TLC reality television show Starter Wives Confidential truly began with a bang during a screening in New York City (Jan. 23) when cast members held no punches discussing their ex-beaus.

INC Lounge in Times Square set the stage for a Q&A with Zakia Baum (ex-girlfriend of Maino), Tashera Simmons (ex-wife of DMX), Monica Joseph-Taylor (ex-wife of Funkmaster Flex), Cheryl Caruso (ex-wife of Phil Caruso), Josie Harris (ex-fiancé of Floyd Mayweather) and Liza Morales (ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom).

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

“I’ve never done [Maino] dirty,” said Baum. “So it’s time for me to tell my story.”

Watch their lives unfold on Tuesday, January 29 at 9 p.m. on TLC.
