A new reality show 'Ex-Wives Of Rock' chronicling the highs and lows of the lives of four women who have led the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll life... and have survived to reinvent themselves premiered on August 31rd on the Canadian network Slice. The show follows video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon), Cherry Pie rock goddess Bobbie Brown (ex-wife of Warrant frontman Jani Lane), drummer and Tommy Lee’s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of Scorpions drummer James Kottak) and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil).
'Ex-Wives of Rock' is co-produced by the former Femme Fatale frontwoman Lorraine Lewis and narrated by Shannon Tweed (wife of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons).
Throughout each episode, you will see all sides of the four ex-wives: the good, the bad and the ugly. You’ll witness family drama, messed up love lives and friendships crash and burn. We’ll see the glamorous red carpet events, the seedy rock clubs, the fabulous hotel lunches and the quiet dinners at home.
Being 'hair band groupies' is far in the past for these now late-thirties, early-forties ladies; but that doesn’t mean their rock ‘n’ roll days are over. Their journey begins where one life has ended and another one has just begun. They are Mothers. Business Owners. Partiers. And ladies of the L.A. lifestyle.
Meet each of the ladies and get a preview clip of the latest episode below:

The band promises no two shows will ever be the same, but the one thing they all have in common is there is no cover charge to attend.
"This has always been the goal, we worked hard to brand Sin City Sinners into not only the busiest rock band in Vegas, but the most sought after" said Jason Green, the bands manager.
The band also has no plans on changing their line up of Special Guest Appearences, artists scheduled to jam in the next 30 days include: Sebastian Bach, Bruce Kulick (KISS), Mark Kendall (Great White), Ron Keel, Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, Rough Cutt) Oz Fox (Stryper) & Frank Dimino (Angel)

Sin City Sinners is Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat) Todd Kerns (Slash) Zach Throne (The Heights) & Rob Cournoyer (Raging Slab).
When Kerns is on tour with Slash he is substituted by Jimmy Crespo (Aerosmith) & Louie Merlino (Beggars & Thieves)

Simmons told the Hollywood Reporter: "With Kiss on tour and with my other business commitments, we have decided to draw the final curtain on our show. It has been a wonderful, life-altering experience for our family, and after seven successful seasons, we feel it’s time to move on."
A statement from A&E read: "For seven great seasons, Gene, Shannon, Nick and Sophie have been part of the A&E family, and we could not be more proud of the unparalleled run of Gene Simmons Family Jewels. On behalf of everyone at A&E, we’d like to thank the production team at Thinkfactory Media, Gene and his amazing family for their partnership, collaboration and for opening up their lives, warts-and-all, to us throughout the years."
