If there’s one thing we know about the ladies of Hollywood Exes, it’s that they have no problem airing their dirty laundry. So when we heard that Shanna Moakler — ex-wife of Blink 182’s Travis Barker — was the newest addition to the cast for Season 3, we had to admit it was pretty brilliant.
Why? Well, in case you missed the implosion of their marriage in the early 2000s, Travis and Shanna’s split was about as amicable as it was private, which is to say not at all. In fact, both the rocker and his ex-beauty queen wife took to MySpace (yeah... remember MySpace? Vaguely?) to share their skeletons.
Though the couple appeared to make an attempt at reconciliation in 2007, even engaging in some PDA at that year’s MTV Video Music Awards, they finalized their divorce in 2008. However, it seems this volatile couple just couldn’t quit each other because they gave it yet another try in 2009, only to have it reportedly end in a fight so bad the police showed up.
Travis isn’t the only famous man in Shanna’s ex files, however — in fact she has three more under her belt. The former Playmate has also dated ‘80s rocker Billy Idol, pro boxer Oscar de la Hoya, and actor Dennis Quaid. In addition to her impressive, uh, resume, it sounds like Shanna and veteran cast member Mayte Garcia have an ex in common. Should make for an interesting season!
Are you excited for the next season of Hollywood Exes?
