Drfunkenberry was on set for the upcoming season finale of VH1's "Hollywood Exes" and we had time to catch up with Mayte Garcia and talk up Jessica Canseco.

Mayte seemed very happy and the cast seemed to get along great with a few glasses of champagne thrown in for good measure.

I asked Mayte about a season two if VH1 has picked it up and she told me she doesn't know yet but is pretty sure.

We are told if they get a certain number of viewers tonight against the Olympics, they will get an automatic season 2!!!!  So make sure tonight to watch  "Hollywood Exes" and record the Olympics.  I mean they are on tape delay any way right?

We needed to talk to Mayte privately about a certain someone's clothes(WHY???) and a few other things and we will have that conversation for you shortly.

"Hollywood Exes is on VH1 Wednesdays, so there is a NEW episode tonight!

We may even ask some of you some questions for her.  Will let you know what happens. Cool?-DocFB

What do you do when a reality show may not be giving you the drama you need? Why, you call Dina Lohan and ask her to be in the mix. That is EXACTLY what VH-1 has done with "Hollywood Exes" a reality show debuting later this year.

We first told you about the show back in March that the show would feature the ex's of Prince, Eddie Murphy, R. Kelly, Will Smith and others.

We had a feeling that Mayte Garcia (Prince's ex) and Nicole Murphy (Eddie Murphy's ex) would be pretty tight-lipped on the show about who they used to be with, and would rather focus on what is going on in their lives now.

We are told that Dina is not exactly a cast member but will be hanging out with the ladies and causing drama.  OK, we added the last, but that for sure is what is going to happen.  For.  Sure.

What won't be happening?  Lindsay Lohan, Dina's famous daughter, appearing on the show.

VH-1, won't you go back to playing music videos instead?-DocFB

Video: Mayte “Ain’t No Place Like U”


OK, so a little bit ago, I was invited to watch a burlesque show by Cherry Boom Boom starring Mayte.

She did a sword dance and then did one of the songs that she recorded and wrote with Prince.  The song is "Ain't No Place Like U" and here is her performance in all it's glory.  I am told that some of the dancers with her were from the "Erotic City" dance troop that used to dance at Prince's club in the 90's. 

Check out the performance and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Baby, It's True....

So, we were fortunate enough to see Mayte Garcia dance last week as a special guest of Cherry Boom Boom and it was hot!  A burlesque show and you add Mayte to the mix?  Oh my. 

She did a sword dance, and the video below is shot in HD for your enjoyment, so make sure to extend it full screen.  She also performed to "Ain't No Place Like U" a song she wrote with Prince.  We will feature that video....sometime in the future.

We do find it interesting that last weekend, after we reported on Mayte, during Prince's 21 night run at the Forum, his female singers, sang "If I Could Get Your Attention" a song that Mayte recorded with Prince.  Hmm.  Would it be lame if we say we would like to see Mayte dance with Prince just one more time...during this run?  Just saying.

When she is not getting hit on by Justin Bieber and doing the acting thing, Mayte teaches belly dancing on Sundays.  To find out what Mayte is up to:


Enjoy the video below and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Sure she can balance a sword on her head, but what about some Awesomesauce?
