Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hollywood Exes features some materialistic behavior and shows people drinking frequently, but it's milder than most reality shows of this kind and actually has somewhat positive messages about women supporting each other. There's some cursing ("s--t," "f--k" bleeped), and on one occasion someone smokes a hookah pipe. Lots of mentions and images of the women's famous exes, like Eddie Murphy and Prince, with occasional appearances by the famous men.
Is It Any Good?
Hollywood Exes highlights some of the adjustments that women divorced from rich and famous singers, actors, and athletes must make when they embark on a single life, including readjusting their spending habits to dealing with everyday issues like paying bills and cooking and cleaning for their families. They also reveal some of ways that these women lost their sense of self thanks to being overshadowed by their partner's career and celebrity status.
While Hollywood Exes is milder than most reality shows of this kind thanks to the maturity of most of the featured women, it still features some mildly catty behavior. And some folks might be surprised by their lifestyles, which often seem much more luxurious than that of the average person. You have to wonder why these women are appearing on a show that's defining them by their former celebrity relationship. But there's some insight here, and the messages the show sends about women supporting each other is ultimately a positive one.
