Athena Kottak from "Ex-Wives of Rock" stars in the Fuse reality docu-series.

The other ex-wives on the show would most likely describe Athena Kottak like this: fiercely loyal, funny as hell, with a gift for drumming like Animal from "The Muppets." They might also add she's a breast cancer survivor blessed with otherworldly patience — how else do you explain why she put up with ex-husband James Kottak (drummer for the Scorpions) for so long? 

The other ladies might also tell you that Athena's had a steady streak of bad luck over the last few years; there was the revelations of James' numerous infidelities, then their seemingly endless divorce, then custody issues involving their three children. For a moment, it looked like she might lose her persistent war with alcoholism, but she pulled it together — just before the death of her mother. As Athena says, "if it wasn't for disappointment, I wouldn't have any appointment."

Mind you, it's not like Athena's helping herself — after realizing the error of his ways, James spent most of last season trying (in his own uniquely antagonistic way) to woo Athena back — to the extent that she's seriously considering moving back in with him. Will Athena overlook her own anger and good judgment when it comes to James? Will her parade of misery continue?
