Hooray for the return of Hollywood Exes! Season two dips into the drama right off the bat as we greet the return of our favorite L.A. ladies, Nicole Murphy, Sheree Fletcher, Mayte Garcia, Jessica Canseco, and Andrea Kelly. Drea and Jessica have a new conflict, Mayte might have a new baby, and Nicole has an unexpected family loss. Re-live the biggest moments of the night below.
The best thing about this conversation between Mayte and her mother, Nelly, (aside from Nelly carrying one of their dogs in a baby carrier) is the honest, open nature they share. Mayte’s able to confide in her mother that she went on a date with a guy who told her it was a dealbreaker if she didn’t perform b— jobs. “What. A. Nerd,” is her mom’s response. I love these two. But things turned sour when Nelly reacted negatively when Mayte expresses her desire to adopt a baby girl. “My dream of being a grandmother was just gone,” Nelly says. Mayte explains that in the Latin community, the belief that “if it’s not blood, it’s not family” pervades and her mom can’t get on board. Mayte’s desire to be a mom is strong enough though that her mind is made up, with or without her mom’s approval. Later, when Mayte gets an email that the adoption can proceed because the birth mother is positive she’s giving up the child, Nelly responds “I’m not babysitting.” Mayte has her work cut out for her.
