The former wife of Major League basketball player Jose Canseco will do anything to keep people talking about her even if it means getting her vagina lasered.
In a new reality show that follows the lives of the ex-wives of the rich and famous, Jessica Canseco takes long time pal and ex-wife of Eddie Murphy, Nicole, for a surprise trip to the spa where she explains she is to have her privates 'rejuvenated.'
Describing how external vaginal laser rejuvenation tightens, evens skin tone and plumps, she laughs: 'You can't hide your age with your neck but you can hide your age with your vagina.'

Relaxing: Jessica Canseco takes friend Nicole Murphy with her to get laser vaginal rejuvenation in a new reality show on VH1 called Hollywood Exes that follows the lives of the ex-wives of famous men
Wow! Nicole, Eddie Murphy's ex-wife is speechless as she learns what her friend is up to and watches the procedure with goggles on
The shocking beauty treatment is the
highlight of an already entertaining hour long episode that debuted the
series, Hollywood Exes, last night on VH1.
While Jessica justifies the procedure
as a kind of research for her cosmetic tattooing and beauty imaging
business, her friend stands by dumbfounded.
Instructed by the beautician to wear goggles to watch, Nicole replies sarcastically: 'At least there's some cool shades'.
Despite Jessica's excuses, the platinum
blonde who went from rags to riches when the baseball pro spotted her
working in a restaurant and married her, is clearly excited for the treatment.

Don't watch: Nicole is mystified by Jessica's decision to alter an area that 'nobody looks at' and laughs as she watches her friend turn over to do both sides
'It makes everything look like a
twelve year old,' the mother of one gushes in an attempt to convince Nicole that
she's not crazy for trying it.
After watching the laser rejuvenation, Nicole admits:
'I could actually see where the skin was a little flat and when the
lady lasered it it would plump up. I was like “wow” that really is
But unconvinced she continues: 'Why would you get that lasered I have no idea. Cos nobody's looking at that!'
WHAT IS VAGINAL REJUVENATION
Though it is not entirely clear exactly what kind of treatment Jessica had on the show, there are two main types of procedure available:
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
For women who want to enhance or improve sexual gratificationMost patients are women who have had children and experience vaginal relaxationThe procedure enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength, and controlEffectively decreases the internal and external vaginal diametersBuilds up and strengthens the perineal body
Designer Laser Vaginoplasty
Aesthetic laser enhancement for women who are concerned with appearanceSculpts and reduces the inner and outer labiaReduces excess skin Reduces thickness of the labia minoraPigmentation treatment to create uniform colourationRejuvenates the relaxed parts of the vaginaAugment any areas that are 'flat' with transfer of fat from other areas
Removes fatty bulges of pubic area
When the hilarious appointment draws to a close and the procedure is over, Jessica looks at the job in the mirror and exclaims: 'That looks good, I am going out tonight.' But her enthusiasm is dampened somewhat when the therapist tells her she has to refrain from sex for a week.
Not one to take anything too
seriously, the good time girl who calls herself 'the fun one' in the
show quips that when she does get some action, 'those lights are staying
on, so they can see it.'
Though Jessica is certainly the joker
in the Hollywood Exes, the motivation of the five women in the new show
are a touch more serious.
They want to prove to
the world that they are more than just discarded arm candy.
the hour long episode the protagonists
reveal the challenges of being married to famous men, the undeniable
perks and the obstacles they face as they lose them.
Joining Jessica and Nicole are Andrea Kelly, former wife of R.Kelly, Sheree Fletcher who was Mrs Will Smith for
three years and Mayte Garcia who was married to Prince.
Now that the cars, the jewels and the
staffed mansions are a thing of the past, each of the ex-wives claim to
be excited to take ownership of their lives and careers, though some
have notably kept their famous last names.
As Andrea joked with The Daily Beast:
'Hey, what helps him helps me, and vice versa; that's the way it
works,' though the tone changes when it comes to their relationship
which, she explains, is non-existent.
Echoing the theme of the show and its
protagonists she added: 'It's my time to do what I want and get back to
the business I was in before I met him and married him. I was somebody
before him and I'm somebody now.'
and Robert, as she calls the singer, were married for ten years and
have three kids together who have remained in their hometown of Chicago
while Andrea films the reality show.
Leaving them to move to LA to try and
launch her dance company there, was a big decision for the dancer who
met R.Kelly while working as his principle choreographer.
Quick with a joke and boisterous when
fooling around with her 'partner in crime' and assistant Tony, Andrea
is comfortable admitting that she found the prospect of moving away a

was married to Eddie Murphy for 12 years and has five children with the
comedian. Though they've been divorced for six years, they are still
friends and enjoy a good relationship.
Andrea felt her talents were neglected and overshadowed by her
husband's career, Nicole's biggest complaint is that she went from
having it all to having nearly nothing.
During her high profile marriage she
had access to a private jet, a Bentley, a Porsche, a Rolls Royce and
'you name it, it was there,' she recalls.

least flashy of the bunch perhaps is Mayte Garcia who on marrying
Prince when she was just a teenager, thought it would be 'for the rest
of her life.'

dogs, two cats, two fish and five birds, Mayte says she is done with
musicians but hasn't given up on love and hires a matchmaker to help
with her romantic pursuits.

Sheree Fletcher, meanwhile, who was married for three brief years to Will Smith when they were very young and has a son, Tre, by the actor, has remarried a pastor in San Diego but still lives in Los Angeles.
A friend of Nicole's for 17 years, she told The Daily Beast: 'I was married to Will for three years, and we were both very young. After the divorce Will was able to provide very well for us, so I could be a stay-at-home mom.
'I remember starting a business when my son was about 3 years old and feeling like it took too much time away from him. He's 19 now, so I feel it the time is right to go and do my thing, and my son is so happy about it.'
