VH1 not bringing back "Atlanta Exes' after one season

VH1 has axed "Atlanta Exes" after one season.

The show - which features the exes of Ne-Yo, Usher, Cee-Lo Green and Kevin Hart - pulled in decent ratings last summer over eight episodes, opening at 2.3 million and finishing with 1.5 million in overnight numbers.

A VH1 spokesman declined to comment why it decided not to bring it back. The network doesn't tend to be too gabby about shows it cancels.

While four of the women live locally, Torrei Hart was imported from Los Angeles to take part on the show and she clashed hard with the most divisive figure in the group - Usher's ex wife Tameka Raymond. Tameka early on came across as haughty and distant from the others though she warmed up later.
