Sheree Fletcher, star of Hollywood Exes, is one of the most grounded reality stars out there. In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister Magazine, Sheree talks about being Will Smith‘s ex-wife, what she thinks of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s marriage (“I think they have an amazing relationship.”), and how she feels being on a reality show. And despite her fame, basically, she comes off like the most normal lady out there.
“Any time you break up in the public eye, there’s so much scrutiny involved. People come into their own set of conclusions without knowing the full story and they have an opinion,” she explained. “That’s part of the down side and sort of comes with the territory.” She says that she did want to run the concept of her new show past her ex though, given the show’s title and all. “I didn’t need Will’s permission to do the show,” she says. “There was nothing that I needed to sign in order to do the show. You know, our son is 19, so out of respect, of course I told him that this was what I was considering doing. He gave me his blessing to have a good time.” And as far as this being your typical reality show full of women fighting, she’s happy to report that it’s not. “They wanted to show women in a positive light and women coming together and being supportive and encouraging one another, a kind of a sorority type of thing. So that kind of piqued my interest. Women can come together and do something great. We can disagree respectfully. I want people to know that women need women. We really do, and I want women to be encouraged.”
Hollywood Exes airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
