“Raising Whitley” season 2, episode 1: “Momma Sexy is Back” premieres tonight on OWN and Kym Whitley is back in action and busier than ever!
In the season 2 premiere, actress, comedienne and mom, Kym Whitley, is back with her son Joshua and her riotous group of friends she calls “The Village.” As Kym plans her star-studded “40th” birthday party, she and Rodney struggle to adjust to their awkward living situation. Now that Rodney has moved in, she has a whole new world of problems to deal with. Find out how this Hollywood mom juggles her job, raising a child, her friends plus Rodney in her “man-space” and still manages to retain her wit and charm.
Here is OWN’s synopsis of the series:
“‘Raising Whitley’ is a humorous, poignant new docu-series following actress and comedienne Kym Whitley and her riotous collective of friends – whom she calls ‘The Village’ – as they attempt to do something none of them have ever done before: raise a baby… together. When Kym signed up to mentor a troubled young girl, she never imagined she’d get a call from the hospital saying, “Your baby is ready.” After learning that her mentee exited the maternity ward leaving only Kym’s contact information, Kym experienced a cataclysmic moment. With less than an hour to make a life-changing decision – and to do a lifetime of soul-searching – Kym chose to become a mother. The Village banded together to help Kym bring up baby Joshua the best they know how, but sometimes it’s hard to tell who is more mature – Joshua or the adults tasked with raising him. Over the season, Kym learns the chaotic realities of becoming a full-time mom: She realizes that, while Craigslist may be perfect for finding an old couch, it’s not ideal for finding a new nanny; she survives Joshua’s first haircut; she gets her groove back on a manhunt with her girlfriends; and she discovers that being ‘just friends’ with Joshua’s ‘daddy’ may not be that simple.”
“Raising Whitley” season 2, episode 1: “Momma Sexy is Back” airs Saturday, Jan. 4, at 10:00 p.m. EST, on OWN. Check out the preview below.
