Executives at the TLC network are launching "Starter Wives," about the women who "supported their former husbands/boyfriends before the fame and wealth made them the men they are today."

Shaniqua Tompkins, the mother of the "In Da Club" hitmaker's son Marquise, and DMX's estranged wife Tashera Simmons will be among the scorned women welcoming cameras into their lives, alongside the former flames of boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and NBA player Lamar Odom, who is now married to Khloe Kardashian.

Filming on the project is scheduled to begin later this month with the series expected to premiere in early 2013.
