TLC Cancels ‘Starter Wives Confidential’
Those looking forward to future episodes of Starter Wives Confidential will have to catch them on TLC.com. According to cast member Monica Taylor (Funkmaster Flex’s ex), the show was abruptly pulled off the air for unknown reasons. If you have been watching, you know these ladies were not holding back when it came to talking about their past relationships with famous entertainers.
In an open letter to fans, Taylor hints that a bevy of other causes could be the reason. “It’s no secret Starter Wives Confidential was plagued by legal inquiries and possible lawsuits from the beginning,” she wrote. “Starting with Shanequa Tompkins being missing from all the episodes, her ex 50 Cent allegedly had an agreement or contract with her of some sort that either prevented or made it difficult for her to partake in the show.”
She went on: “I know before taping even began I was questioned about my posts relating to anyone connected with Lamar Odom. Luckily TLC had no control over what I do or can post so it became a non-issue. I never did find out who was putting pressure on them. Cut to the Lil Kim situation, one which I’m still confused about and can’t even confirm if there is a law suit.”
The drama-filled show had a pretty core, but small fan base, but it seems there was more importance on keeping things quiet. Monica seems certain of this. “I can only imagine there were a lot of people who were afraid what would come out on Starter Wives Confidential and as you saw from the first few episodes, the ladies were NOT holding back! Trust me it gets better and much juicier. But I digress.”
Later she writes, “I realize I didn’t answer why we are not being aired anymore…you will just have to judge for yourself.”
Something tells us 50 Cent, Lamar Odom, DMX and the other famous exes aren’t too upset about this surprising news.
