New Mayte Interview

http://pcm-tv.com/2012/Ma...arcia.html

Kristyn recently spoke with Mayte Garcia, who stars in the new reality show HOLLYWOOD EXES premiering on VH1 this June. The show follows Mayte, who was married to "Prince" for 4 year, and the ex-wives of Eddie Murphy, R. Kelly, Will Smith and Jose Canseco through the emotion and drama. The 10-episode series will follow the women as they establish their own lives apart from their famous exes. Hollywood Exes "want to show the world that they are more than just a trophy wife with a pretty face."

Mayte hints that this season we will see her aspirations in acting, her love of belly dancing, and possibly a new love interest. She emphasizes that girls support each other as they struggle with heartbreak and attempt new careers since they are remarkably similar. Mayte says that "even after a high profile marriage we still have aspirations and careers and things that we want to do"

The season sounds like it will be filled with excitement, drama and bonding and should be a fun new show for the summer.

I wish I could have listened to the whole thing, but that host is horrible - and the sound quality on Mayte is really bad. You can barely understand her. disbelief

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I agree. Her voice was annoying.

Did anyone find it odd that Mayte didn't mention Prince's name. She referred to him as the man she was married to or her ex?

Not a bad interview. She pretty much said she does not plan on
doing a tell all, in reference to her former marriage with her ex-husband
in respect of his privacy, and that there is nothing for anyone
to worry about, apparently in that regard.

She also stated the show is about the women, and how they
are moving on with their lives. She also mentioned Prince
and how she was grateful for her former career with him, and having
the opportunity to work with/tour with one of the greatest artists (music icons). She also mentioned earlier in the interview that Manuela was also approached to do a reality show sometime ago, but as she stated, the
ahow will be focusing on the ex-wives' current careers/goals and follow the progress/status of their personal lives.

I guess that shows her detachment from him. But if she still keeps the china from their marriage and if it's true she still has his clothes....there's no hope of her getting over him.

well she repeated what someone else said "Oh that's Prince's Wife" so in a way she did say his name. lol

Actually she did say his name more than once, later in the interview, after being questioned about her former relationship with him and stated how grateful she was to have had the experience and career of working for one of the greatest music/artist icons.

Maybe she's saving them for a rainy day - she can sell them when her bank account's low. That Prince handwritten note to "Charlene F" fetched over $500 on online auction site.

I think she won't sell them until she's fully over Prince and/or finds a new love. She's kept these things for over 10 years after they broke up.

Anyone here still have your ex husband's clothes?

Well... maybe I would of done the same thing wink

confused I strangely feel more interested to see Manuela on a reality show then I would Mayte. We already know everything about Mayte and she isnt that interesting without Prince. Manuela seems a bit smarter, and might be more interesting to see how her life is going. Then again, I could not give a damn about the two any more. Their association with Prince is really all that ever interested me.

VH1 to premiere 'Hollywood Exes:' An Interview with Mayte Garcia

Mayte Garcia is a star. She is a talented dancer, singer and actress. Oh, and yes…she was also once married to Prince, the legendary performer. Garcia’s fans remember watching her in various videos alongside her then-husband and The NPG (New Power Generation). Garcia has an infinite amount of fans, and when the news was announced that she would be a part of a new show, they were thrilled. Garcia’s talent is evident in all that she does, and her work is synonymous with excellence. Garcia has worked with famed pop star Britney Spears on her renowned “Slave 4 U” music video as well as her 2001 MTV Video Music Awards performance that generated headlines around the world. She has been featured in roles on such hit TV shows as “Psych,” “Las Vegas, ” and “The Closer, ” just to name a few. The star is now starring on a new VH1 show entitled, “Hollywood Exes,” which is set to premiere next Wednesday, June 27. Viewers are certainly planning to tune in to watch the highly-anticipated debut. Mayte Garcia will be joined by a few other former wives of some of the biggest names in Hollywood: Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith), Jessica Conseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco), and Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of R. Kelly).

Mayte Garcia was interviewed and discussed “Hollywood Exes,” her plans for the future as it pertains to her career, and much more.

Katrina-Kasey Wheeler: What is it like to star on the new VH1 reality show, “Hollywood Exes” ?

Mayte Garcia: It is really exciting for me. I started dancing at the age of three, and I was on “That’s Incredible!” when I was eight. That was “the show” back in the day. After I left Prince and working with him, people just kind of thought of me as being his ex-wife -- they didn’t realize that I was a dancer, singer and actress. It was really frustrating, and it still is really frustrating. When I was approached about this show [Hollywood Exes], I thought: “You know, this is really cool, because I can finally address the purple elephant in the room -- no pun intended -- but let’s address it, move on, and let people get to know who I am.” It has been a struggle, and the fact that there are so many other women on the show, I thought that it would be a good time to share that.

KKW: Is it more difficult to branch out and have the public see one for who they are -- as a star, and not just a celebrity ex-wife after having been married to someone who is famous around the world?

MG: It is hard because people label you as that. I can’t speak for the other women, but for me it has been a struggle. I would like to address it and show how I am and how I am living my life now. We have all been married to celebrities, but at the end of the day we are still human beings and we have dealt with divorce in the public eye, and are dealing with it in the public eye, so why not share it?

KKW: What can viewers expect to see on the new show? Will there be ups and downs that are chronicled on the show as is the case with most popular reality shows on television?

MG: When you get five women in a room you are going to see many feelings and heartache. We are being who we are; we all have different things that we are going through and supporting each other with.

KKW: Have you known your co-stars for a long time?

MG: I have known Nicole [Murphy] the longest. I met Sheree [Fletcher] a couple of times, but everyone else is new to me. It is great though, we all have a lot in common.

KKW: Prior to becoming a part of the VH1 show, did you give the possibility of starring on a reality show any consideration?

MG: I had been approached to be a part of different shows, but I didn’t think that they were right. This new show -- it’s a positive show, we really talked about it. People are like, “Oh, are you going to talk about him [Prince]?” But this show is about me. Yes, I was married to him, but this is about me. I decided to be a part of the show because of the people doing it.

KKW: You have seen such great success when you have starred in roles on various television shows and films. Apart from “Hollywood Exes,” what other projects are you working on?

MG: We are still filming the show, and I am in the process of auditioning for a film which is starring William Levy (one of the finalists on the recent season of “Dancing with the Stars”), and it is a dance film. I am really excited about the possibility, because I would get to do both acting and dancing. Viewers will see the struggle, and me going through it. People will see me either get the role or not get it. I am going to show how I feel and what I go through. I don’t think that people get to see that.

KKW: You are a wonderful dancer, and you have garnered many fans as a result; many fans have been inspired by your work with Prince and the NPG. Who are your greatest inspirations in dance?

MG: Rita Moreno, Debbie Allen, and also the movie “Flashdance.” For me, mostly Rita Moreno. I actually had the opportunity to work with Rita Moreno on a music video, and it was a dream come true. She is the Latina singer, dancer and actress -- she has been all of that. That was my inspiration.

KKW: What advice would you give to people who dream of dancing and moving to a city like Los Angeles to make their dream come true?

MG: I would say to work hard and do your research. If someone comes out to Los Angeles, do the research. Sometimes I get messages on Facebook asking me where they should take dance lessons, and I think people should reach out to others. I would also say it is important to work hard, be prepared, and to stay true to yourself as well as grow thick skin because it is a ride -- the good and the bad.

KKW: The power of the internet is certainly obvious. You have a large following on Twitter. That social media outlet in particular has been a great way for people to keep in touch with the fan bases as well as keeping information flowing. What do you think of Twitter?

MG: I did Twitter because I’m social, I love the internet and all those kinds of things. You know I had a few followers at one time, and then I started hanging out with Kim Kardashian; I have known her for a long time. Then at one point she tweeted me, and I was like, “Oh my God, what it going on?” I was getting followed by all these people. I started to use Twitter and share with people. I enjoy what people are doing. It is just another way to communicate with others. I love it.

KKW: Twitter has proven to be a very useful tool for people in the public eye, as well as fostering a rapport with fans.

MG: It is so hard to break into the industry, so I think any way that one can reach out to people is good.

KKW: What do you hope that viewers will take away from watching the new show, “Hollywood Exes”?

MG: I hope that they enjoy it; I hope that they laugh and cry. I hope that they experience many feelings. I wish that twelve years ago this would have happened when I got divorced. We are all human beings that have all gone through things. It is cleansing and I think that people are going to enjoy it.

Please visit the official VH1 website for additional information on the newest show “Hollywood Exes.”

I think just the opposite.

Maybe with his earlier relationships, but Mayte and Manuella seem to have a lot going on (intellectually).

I agree. Perhaps he didn't date intellectuals, but the ones he married (though I wouldn't call them "intellectuals") seem to be bright, pretty well-spoken, hard-working, motivated and kind people overall.

Before, I was thinking, "oh really, she kept the china and some clothes. big deal, whatev."

But now I just saw the promo on VH1 2 seconds ago, and after seeing it, I'm like

WHAAAT!? eek

It's not just "oh she kept the china" like other women who keep china (usually a wedding gift or something) - it's all imprinted with the Symbol and on display!

Well, the china did look quite nice. hmmm

But NO! - that's CRAZY!

And the matchmaker has to point out that this "shrine to Prince" might be preventing her from finding a man?! shake

I hope when she sees the other ladies go eek at her having his clothes, she doesn't carefully hang them back up in her closet!

I hope this VH1 experience is a turning point for her and she finally finds herself another man and moves on! She seems like a lovely person and I wish her the best.

(and I'll take the china off her hands - you know, so she can move on...)

They have the first episode up on VH1.com and I have to say... This is so terrible. I had an idea over the years of how Mayte might still be hung up on Prince but this is horrible to watch. It makes you feel really bad for her. And to see her get upset the way she did with Jose Canseco's wife, fumbling over the glasses she broke. It seemed really awkward. As if Mayte was upset but didnt know how to handle herself. Then there was a part where all the wives talked about their husbands and introduced themselves. Mayte was the only one who had a deep undertone of emotions that seem to have not been closed. Its really obvious and makes you feel for her. I hope she can find closure and whatever Prince did to her to make her this way, hopefully she can find happiness of her own and move on.
