DMX's Wife Criticizes 50 Cent Over Cancellation Of "Starter Wives Confidential"

DMX's estranged wife took 50 Cent to task after he took credit for the cancellation of her TV series.

The estranged wife of DMX recently took aim at 50 Cent over the cancellation of her TV show, "Starter Wives Confidential."

Tashera Simmons addressed Fif's recent comments that he was responsible for the cancellation of her TLC reality series, which followed on a number of celebrities' former partners. She said that rappers like 50 Cent - whose whose ex-girlfriend appeared in the first episode of the series - enjoy the benefits of a sexist double standard, while her and her co-stars are penalized for attempting to share their stories.

"I am very disappointed by the sequence of events that has taken place in the last week. It’s disheartening that the show was cancelled after two episodes due to many inflated egos," she said in a statement. "I am no stranger to television and what just happened was unheard of and completely unorthodox. There were millions of dollars and a lot of hard work put into this project by the producers, staff, and my co-stars. It’s hard to believe that there are still some fundamental issues in our society about women speaking up or having a voice."

She continued, "It’s okay for rappers to get on television and tell their story about how many times they were shot or how they were heavily in the drug game, but it’s not okay for women to share their story about their life experiences. 'Starter Wives Confidential' was more than a show about bitter or entitled women; it was about a group of women stepping out of the shadows of their ex’s and finding their way in life personally and professionally.”

As previously mentioned, Fif took credit for the show's cancellation in a Tweet earlier this week. TLC has since issued a statement indicating that the show was cancelled due to low ratings.

    I really enjoyed that show, I thought it was the realest hip hop wives, reality show there was. Their shit didn't look scripted. It would take a B*tch ass female like 50 skirts to drop in on women drama. Guess he got tired of bullying those weak ass dudes, and went after strong women. I hope they bring the show back, because that was the realest reality wives show I've seen thus far!!!!

    I hope that Liza Morales, Lamar Odom's ex, finds her passion and really takes the opportunity to start a career. She needs to step out of his shadow and find something worthwhile to do with her time. Kids grow up and leave and then what will she do? I like her and I think it is karma that Khloe Kardashian can't get pregnant no matter how hard she tries. But liza, it is time to move on and get a career. And please don't start a clothing, jewelry or perfume line. please.

    "you'll never see 50 on a reality show" He did show up briefly on that Pauly D show.

    50 is wrong for this one. I bet he wasn't going to make money so he got his ego hurt & decided to be grimy. #Don'tBeJealousFemaleTrait

    Regardless of 50 Cent being the mastermind or not, it's refreshing to read about a television show based off of crumb snatchers being yanked off of the air. To the young, aspiring businessmen, it is a message to leave the ghetto trash alone. They're nothing more than despicable, cultural vacuums who do nothing but suck you back into their madness. If you choose to sleep with one, make sure you are legally protected. Starter Wives Confidential is nothing but a mainstream branding of Confessions of the Uneducated Hood Rats. If these "women" had a slight ounce of brainpower, they would ask the fathers of their kids to put them through some business classes and independently create their own brand, not based off of whom they lied in the bed with, from the basement to Main Street. The poor woman's version of Skeletor states: "Its okay for rappers to get on television and tell their story about how many times they were shot or how they were heavily in the drug game, but its not okay for women to share their story about their life experiences. 'Starter Wives Confidential' was more than a show about bitter or entitled women; it was about a group of women stepping out of the shadows of their exs and finding their way in life personally and professionally. The reason it's okay for the rappers to tell their stories is because they woke up and realized it was time for them to be men and accept accountability. The reason it's not okay is because no one in their right mind wants to hear about a random group of unworthy cum dumpsters who cannot accept or understand the concept of responsibility.

      I kind of feel ya, I mean we are tired of seeing women become famous or rich because of their old relationships. If they did something prior to the show such as perform, write a book, be in a commercial or something maybe it would be interesting. There is nothing interesting about these women i.e. basketball wives, this show and all others like it.There is nothing entertaining about watching women belittle themselves.

  • stop it

    50 Cent doesn't have the power to cancel anything. People give him way too much credit. I noticed he likes to lead people into thinking he has more control then he actually does. Ratings makes sense...People don't watch TLC for stuff like that, it should have been on VH1 with the other hiphop filth and it would have survived.

    "As previously mentioned, Fif took credit for the show's cancellation in a Tweet earlier this week." "The G-Unit general's original Tweet can be found below. I want to apologize to cast of Starter Wives for having the show pulled off the net work.i sincerely hope you find work.#smsaudio o/oo 50cent (@50cent) February 18, 2013" ^ I don't see that in the tweet The headline and response should be towards this: "to the cast of Starter Wives I pulled the show off the net work. find work.#smsaudio o/oo" 50cent

    "especially if you gonna go on reality tv and talk shit about them and exploit their kids for a quick buck" But it's ok for Joe Budden to cry on VH1? If a network is willing to pay you then why not do it. It's easy money.

    • Anonymous

      at least joe budden has talent and skills. but hes still a bitch for that. anyone on reality tv is a punk. you'll never see jay-z, eminem, or 50 on a reality show because they aren't desperate for money and dont want their private lives in the public eye like that for a quick check. all these reality stars are going to regret that shit 10 or 20 years from now.

    50 did the world a favor. these bitches need to get a real job. getting knocked up by a rapper doesn't entitle you to shit. especially if you gonna go on reality tv and talk shit about them and exploit their kids for a quick buck.

    How many of these shows do we need though. We have former mob wives making money off of associating with criminals. basketball wives. women who are associated with rappers. I dont wanna be sexist, but all of these shows are based on former/current relationships with well known men, and they live off that fame. DMX should get remunerated for this show. Nas should've got remunerated for that book Carmen Bryant wrote. Do something on your own for once.
