Torrei Hart is best known as Kevin Hart’s ex-wife, but that should change. Hart, who is currently on Atlanta Exes, is herself a stand-up comedienne. Now that she’s receiving more exposure through her role along with Usher’s ex Tameka Raymond, she’s hoping to parlay that into more interest in her comedy work.
“I do plan on going back to stand up. It’s not a competition. But I’m pretty funny. I got class clown in HS. Always in theaters and plays. I think that’s why Kevin and I connected on that level. It was in me, like it was in him. he did inspire me a lot – good and bad.”
Atlanta Exes has helped bring Hart exposure on her own merits. She says she’s enjoying the reality show, despite the cat-fighting and petty dramas that most of them come with.
It’s going good. We’re done filming so I’m watching just like you all are. The mess is good,” Hart says. Despite some testy moments with Raymond in particular, Hart says she’s happy to work with all the women on the show, which include Cee Lo Green’s ex and Ne-Yo’s ex-fiancee and baby mama.
“I don’t want to vote anyone off the island. I enjoy all the women.”
One thing that may have helped Atlanta Exes get off the ground was the timing of Kevin Hart’s engagement to girlfriend Eniko Parrish, which happened the night the show premiered. Hart says she has no hard feelings about the timing.
