Raising Whitley: About the Show
<i>Raising Whitley</i> 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. <br><br> 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. <br><br> 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. <br><br> Tune in for the series premiere of <i>Raising Whitley</i> on Saturday, April 13th at 10/9c, only on OWN.
