(AllHipHop News) DMX’s wife Tashera Simmons has officially separated from the chart-topping rapper and is planning a reality show focusing on her rebuilding their family without him.
According to Simmons, the reality show is titled Tashera Simmons….Life After X and will give a firsthand account of how their family is coping with the rapper’s legal and drug problems and how they “cope with a husband and a father that has let them down over and over again.”
Additionally, Simmons is penning a tell-all memoir titled Tashera Simmons…Strength of A Woman, with author Aliya S. King.
“It’s not a tell-all, I want to clear that up. It’s a memoir, it’s a story about our life, my life, and our life together,” Simmons told AllHipHop.com in a press release announcing the reality show.
“My side of the story, because I feel like in his book, he didn’t really get into detail to better explain it,” Tashera Simmons stated. “I think reading my book, it explains everything. I’m talking about everything, from my childhood when I was abandoned by my mother and left to take care of my siblings, to when me and Earl (DMX) first met at 11 and we got together at 18 and I’m starting from there until then on…It’s a positive tell all.”
According to Tashera, the reality show is being shopping to several networks, who are vying to pick up the show.
Tashera Simmons and the Simmons family was featured on the hit BET reality series, DMX: Soul of A Man.
The reality series chronicled DMX’s career in 2006, during the months leading up to one of several jail stints over the past 10 years, the most recent being from March 2010 until July 2010, for violating terms of his previous probation.
The rapper tested positive for cocaine.
The reality series is currently in negations with several networks to have the show picked up.
Tashera Simmons recently launched a foundation called Women of Strength, a foundation dedicated to supporting drug abuse, abandonment and other issues.
