There is no way you could not know who this Philly native is! His start to fame started with rapping, to your television then to the big screen. Will has had many great roles in various movies from action-packed, to comedy, to drama, even sci-fi. He's been in hit movies like "I Am Legend," "Pursuit of Happiness," the "Men in Black" franchise, and let's not forget the "Bad Boys" movies, which we keep hearing rumors of a "Bad Boys 3" in the works. His latest work includes the sci-fi movie "After Earth" which he will star with his son Jaden Smith. Be on the lookout for Will in the upcoming movies "Winter Tales" and a sequel to "Hancock" which will drop in 2014. Will Smith isn't sitting still anytime soon, and why would we want him to?

We all love watching drama play out on these reality shows, or we love hating on them. Well regardless, TLC has pulled Starter Wives Confidential. I'm sure that's good news for Lamar Odom, Floyd Mayweather and the other fellas whose girls are featured on the show. There was no actual word as to why the show was pulled from tv but it will be aired on the web. Monica, one of the exes on the show posted somewhat of a letter announcing the show being pulled. Check it out:
If you want to watch the remainder of episodes of Starter Wives Confidential you will have to go online to TLC.com.
Ask me why? ::Long pause::
Is it ratings? Is it a change in network direction…or all the outside drama?!
It’s no secret Starter Wives Confidential was plagued by legal inquiries and possible lawsuits from the beginning. 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. 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.
Bringing a show with women of color to TLC we always knew was a challenge and I love that they believed in our stories and gave us a voice. A voice, honesty, love, a lot of drama, and a bit of ratchetness. (Usually required for any good reality show.)
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. (I always wanted to say that in a post.)
I want to say that from the very bottom of my soul the support and love from viewers was more amazing then I imagined. Even the haters felt our show was genuine. I love that personally I got to not only bond with 5 amazing women but was allowed to show that not all celebrity wives sit home, model, or are simpletons. For the first time people got to know who I really am, if even just a little bit.
P.S. I realize I didn’t answer why we are not being aired anymore…you will just have to judge for yourself. ::Closes the shades carefully as she writes and presses send::
