LOS ANGELES - Nov. 25, 2016 - PRLog -- Get ready for a new reality show that takes mending friendships to a whole new level. Oxygen will air 'The Battle of The Ex-Besties' on December 6th, 2016 at at 11pm ET/PT. So what do you do when you find out that to win $100,000.00 you have to make up with your ex-best friend. Well as Melanie clearly states,' Many people never get a chance to make up for lost friendships, and what better motivation than money'. But in all seriousness Melanie was excited to have the opportunity to mend a friendship that at one time she truly cherished.

"We are very excited about this project that delves into the true value of friendships.  Viewers are thrust into these relationships that are already at their lowest points, opening the door for a number of possibilities for their friendships," said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. "By adding a grand prize to the emotionally and physically-demanding experience, we are tapping into the drama that our audience loves."

The show was demanding and hard but it was an experience that Melanie said made her grow as a person and gave her a stronger sense of character.

They say you should never mix business with pleasure, but Melanie and Ashonti had to learn the hard way. After becoming best friends in college, Melanie worked tirelessly to make a name for herself on the ever-competitive golden coast and constantly passed job opportunities to her bestie Ashonti. This quickly backfired, however, after Melanie heard rumblings that Ashonti was vying for her job by pointing out her progress over Melanie's. Things worsened when Ashonti began to score other job offers and began talking down to her best friend.
